PlayStation 5: Everything We Know So Far

With its long-awaited reveal event held on June 11, 2020 Sony’s PlayStation 5 kicked off the next generation of console games. Sony has repeatedly stated in official messaging about PS5 that the console will release in "Holiday 2020." In retail terms, that often implicitly centers around Christmas Day on December 25. However, this vague target for the console's release often more accurately means that the PS5 will be available for purchase as a high-profile gift before the Christmas holidays. We expect to see the new console drop sometime from mid-November to early December to take advantage of the holiday shopping season.
