At long last, the next generation of consoles has been confirmed to be released at the end of the year and the PlayStation 5 will represent Sony as we transition to a brand new phase in gaming. With the Xbox Series X standing in Microsoft's corner, there are plenty of features that gamers will want to know when deciding which console to buy.
One of the most important factors when deciding which console to buy is the price; around the games, controllers and the console itself. With a holiday 2020 date in the books, its likely only one console will be a possibility at launch for customers.

PS5 Release Date and Cost
The PS5 is set to release 'Holiday 2020', meaning anytime between October and December.
Thinking back to the launch of the PS4, it released November 15th 2013, likely meaning that the PlayStation 5 will release near Christmas.
To back up this theory, a leak has suggested the release date will be November 20, which would put it in direct competition with the Xbox Series X, which has a rumoured release date of November. Game on.
It's estimated that the PS5 will cost £400 - which will be priced competitively with the Xbox Series X. There are plenty of factors that will influence the final cost - games, marketing, region etc.
Microsoft has revealed Halo Infinite will be a launch title, while the PS5 will likely launch with a few big exclusives; none of which have been officially confirmed.
