Leaker reveals PS5 price and preorder timing
Sony will reportedly start PS5 preorders as soon as early June, an insider claims.
The leak is in line with the person’s previous PlayStation 5 leaks that said the console should be unveiled in early June and hit stores in mid-November.
There’s no evidence to back up any of these claims, however.

We have yet to actually see it, but the next-gen PS5 is one of the hottest products of the year. That’s assuming Sony launches the PS5 on time this year, considering everything that’s going on right now with the novel coronavirus. This health crisis is probably the reason why the PlayStation 5 design remains a mystery. Sony was supposed to hold a PlayStation event in February or March, but that never happened. Sony didn’t even have time to send out media invites for such an event, so we have no way of knowing whether the company really planned to reveal the new console in early 2020. Sony also pulled out of all other tech events that followed, including MWC and a few gaming shows.
Aside from the PS5 logo reveal at CES 2020, Sony had just two other major PS5 announcements this year, including the PS5 specs announcement and the new DualSense controller unveiling. But a PS5 announcement might be just around the corner, according to several reports from the past few days. Now, one of those leakers claims that PS5 preorders might start very soon.
