PS5 Rumored To Receive A Price Drop In The US, UK & Germany
The PS5 is expected to receive a price drop in multiple regions, including the US, UK, and Germany, based on the latest rumor.
Twitter user billbil_kun, who is known for leaking games that are added to various subscription services prior to their official announcement, has hinted that the PS5 will soon receive a price drop in multiple regions, including the US, UK, and Germany. This may be some sort of clearance sale in order to make way for the possible arrival of a Slim and/or Pro version of the console.
As for when the sale will go live is anyone’s guess. The Twitter user seems to be hinting that it will happen sometime soon. The US, UK, and Germany are the only countries mentioned in the tweet, but it’s possible that there will be other European countries that receive the sale.
Previously, a member of gaming enthusiast forum, Reset Era, had shared an ad for a discount of 100 Euros on the Disc Edition of the PS5 that was offered from July 1, 2023 to July 15, 2023 in Spain. The offer was not limited to the store seen in the promotion, however, and was offered in certain other regions as well.
The PlayStation 5 (PS5) is a home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was announced in April 2019 and launched on November 12, 2020, initially in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, North America, and South Korea, followed by a global release one week later. The PS5 belongs to the ninth generation of video game consoles, alongside Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S consoles, which were also released in the same month.
The Disc Edition PS5 model features an optical disc drive that supports Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, while the Digital Edition is a more affordable option designed for downloading games exclusively, lacking the disc drive. Both variants were released simultaneously.
Key hardware features of the PlayStation 5 include a custom solid-state drive that enables high-speed data streaming, leading to significant improvements in storage performance. It also incorporates an AMD GPU capable of displaying 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, along with hardware-accelerated ray tracing for realistic lighting and reflections. The console is equipped with the Tempest Engine, facilitating hardware-accelerated 3D audio effects. Additional features include the DualSense controller, which offers haptic feedback, backward compatibility with the majority of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games, and compatibility with the PlayStation VR2 headset.
