Sony PS5 is coming out this year and a few technical details about the gaming console were shared recently at an online event. Fans have no idea how the Sony PlayStation 5 looks like while Microsoft has shared so many specs and revealed the look of Xbox Series X. But the biggest deciding factor in the battle of PS5 vs Xbox Series X will the price of gaming console.
Sony and Microsoft have not revealed how much the next-gen consoles will cost to gamers. There are some new leaks mentioning the PS5 retail price and if true they could totally beat the market for Xbox Series X. It is claimed that the new PlayStation 5 will be priced at a very lower retail late to stay ahead in the competition.
Sony PlayStation 5 Price Leaks and Other Updates
Sony PS5 price has been leaked by one of the retailers from Canada named Play N Trade Vancouver Island. The company has shared the price of PlayStation 5 on its Facebook page as $388 and is even accepting pre-orders for the console.

PS5 pre-orders are $600 Canadian at retailer Play N Trade Vancouver, which is roughly $400-450 USD, so the same price as PS4 when it released. Take with a grain of salt until Sony confirms pic.twitter.com/Kkw3Eyg0s2

Although, Sony has not announced anything on PS5 after its recent presentation by Mark Cerny and the Canadian page could be just spreading fake information. It doesn’t make sense for the new PS5 to cost so less and most of the reports were speculating it around $450. There are also speculations that PlayStation 5 could more than $1,000 but that’s a price hardly gamers will pay.
PS5 vs Xbox Series X
Sony PS5 will be equipped with cutting edge hardware and technology hence having a price tag of more than $500 makes sense. But there is direct competition from Xbox Series X and it means both the companies would have to break the price. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has assured fans that the latest model will not lose to Sony over price and performance. Even though the Xbox Series X has better specs, Sony PS5 gets a special edge as they a lot of exclusive game titles.
