Description: From everything we've heard so far, the PlayStation 5 is going to blow us away with its top-level specs and eye-catching design, though nothing is certain until Sony makes the console official. We now know that'll be at the end of 2020.
Sony has now confirmed that the PlayStation 5 is going to arrive in November or December 2020 – just in time for the holiday shopping season. If you're in the Netherlands, you can even get a preorder in.

That makes sense, really: the PlayStation 3 came out in 2006, and was followed by the PlayStation 4 in 2013, and rumours have been circulating for months that the PlayStation 5 would launch around 2020.
Respected Sony analyst Hideki Yasuda had previously pegged the launch date of the PS5 as November 2020, with a starting price point of $499 (roughly £400). Take that price with a pinch of salt for now, but Yasuda got the launch window right.

With the Xbox Two aka Xbox Scarlett tipped for a 2020 launch, the PS5 launch date may have been adjusted to 2020 to match – perhaps we'll never know. At least we've now got a target to start saving for.
