As everyone knows Sony had not yet announced the official launch date and price of PS5. It is because of the ongoing dispute of Sony with Microsoft that which company will first reveal the launch date of a next-generation console. But now it seems like Microsoft has won this race. According to the latest news update, Microsoft Company will launch its first next-generation gaming console before Sony.
Release Date of Sony PS5
According to the source, Sony is about to launch PS5 on the 13th of November 2020. Moreover, Video Games Chronicle (VGC) mentioned that many retail sources claim that PS5 will be released in mid-November. VGC also stated that PlayStation “has already booked significant marketing spend for the seven days commencing on Friday, November 13”.
The conflict between Microsoft and Sony Company
Microsoft Company is also all set to launch its next-generation gaming console Xbox Series X in November. Microsoft has not yet announced the official release date. But in the latest Xbox Wire blog, the company clarified that the Xbox Series X will launch in November. Whereas Sony Company has not announced a confirmed release date. According to the official sources, the company only announced that PS5 will launch in the “holiday season”.
VGC mentions that Microsoft will launch Xbox Series in the first week of November. Another reliable source, Tipster, also claims that Xbox Series X is about to launch on the 6th of November in the United States. This means Microsoft will launch its next-generation console a whole week before the launch date of PS5. So if all these leaked news is authentic, the ball will be in the Court of Microsoft Company. Not only will it dishearten the fans of PlayStation, but Microsoft will also win the battle for festive sales.
