Just as we have seen the final design of the Sony PlayStation 5 which is the latest and greatest gaming console from the company in a long time, we are also seeing a few more details leak out. While the features, design and performance of Sony PS5 are known to everyone since they are officially revealed, the next thing everyone wanted to see was the pricing of this console.

After all, it is a fact that the product is as good as it is priced at. And we know that gaming consoles are generally priced lower compared to gaming PCs while having similar specifications since the idea is to sell games and accessories and make money on them. This is the truth of any gaming console be it from Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo and it is why people wonder how they can price their products this low. Not many realize that they are actually selling the consoles at a loss but recovering that from their game sales.

Coming back to the topic of why we are here in the first place, Sony PS5’s pricing which has been the hot topic was outed by Amazon France as it looks like someone at their office got very excited. The official announcement or the launch of Sony PS5 is still a long way off so Amazon France listing the product on their site is strange. But we are not complaining as the price of this console was seen and it might start at 499€. This listing was seen by Ben Geskin who is one of the prominent concept creators for future phones based on leaks.

Those wondering about the US pricing of the Sony PS5 from this leak, the idea here is that the prices of the console in US markets will be similar or lower. Therefore, it is more than likely the Sony PS5 will start at USD 499 but we might see a lower starting price. Sony PS5’s digital edition pricing was also leaked which is 399€ on Amazon France meaning it might be the same for the US which will be USD 399.

On top of that, Amazon France showed the availability of Sony PS5’s digital and normal edition from November 20, 2020, which might be the launch date limited to France or worldwide. The launch date, as well as pricing, also falls in line with earlier reports that talked about Sony PS5’s pricing and it is likely that the Xbox Series X will start in the same price segment too.
