• Launch: this will be the PS5 and these are all the games that will arrive
  • Launch: The ridiculous profit that PS5 makes that will sell

After the official presentation of PS5 and its games, there were few doubts that remained to be solved about the Sony console called to mark the next generation of the world of video games.

Some doubts that oscillated around its sale price , its size and its launch date . Three unknowns that have been revealed thanks to a mistake on the Amazon page of France.

The PlayStation 5 in its version with disc reader will have a price of 499.99 euros . A figure one cent below the threshold of 500 euros that Sony had set as the maximum for the launch .

PS5 Price

Paradoxical as it may seem, for PlayStation selling consoles is not a business in itself. The profit margins of selling a console , especially during the launch year, are practically nil for Sony . However, it is a profitable business, as we explain in this article.

For Sony, the sale of consoles like the PS5 (and previously the Playstation 4) is the gateway for millions of people to a consumption habit that entails a series of fixed expenses (subscriptions like PlayStation Plus) and specific but recurring expenses (purchase of peripherals and games in physical or virtual format) from which they will obtain benefits during the years that the useful life of the console lasts, which ranges between 6 and 7 years.

PS5 Dimensions

After knowing its futuristic design -with irregular lines and a chromaticism that plays the contrast between jet black, nuclear white and blue LEDs- another of the unknowns of the PS5 launch has to do with the size of the console.

A doubt that has been revealed after the leak in Amazon France. The PS5 will be 47.6 centimeters high, 38.2 centimeters wide and 12.6 centimeters deep .

A somewhat more streamlined shape than the largest version of the current PlayStation4 - the PS4 Pro - which measures 55 centimeters of something, by 32.7 centimeters wide and 29.5 centimeters deep.

The PS5 will weigh 4.78 kilos . It will be considerably heavier than its predecessor - the PS4 Pro - which weighs 3.3 kilos.

PS5 release date

Although the launch date of the PlayStation 5 was not revealed during the presentation, clues were given by the date on which some of its video games could be purchased, which pointed to the end of autumn or the beginning of winter this year.

Specifically, the PS5 release date will be November 20, 2020 . A date that also coincides with the starting gun of this year's BlackFriday.
