PlayStation 5 Pre-Orders To Go Live This Week, Report Claims

PlayStation 5 Pre-Orders To Go Live This Week, Report Claims

Sony is playing its cards frustratingly close to its chest when it comes to PlayStation 5 pre-orders, but a new report suggests that we don't have long to wait. According to known leaker IronManPS5, you'll be able to put money down on the next-gen console from September 9th - a full 25 years to the day that Sony launched the original PlayStation in the US.

Some caveats to this report: IronManPS5 has been known to get a few things right in the past... but he's also made his share of mistakes. With a fairly patchy track record, do be sure to take this with a pinch of salt. Plus, with two days to go until September 9th, you'd think Sony might have actually confirmed the news by now.


To be honest, the only reason we're really covering this particular rumour is because the PlayStation 25th anniversary definitely lends it that little extra bit of credence.... but we'll have to wait and see.

Sony has reassured fans time and time again in the last few months that the PlayStation 5 will launch during this year's holiday period as planned. Since then, multiple leaks and reports have put the next-gen hardware's release window squarely into November, which lines up with the release dates of the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 (November 11th and 15th respectively).

The PlayStation 5 Has Revived A 'Classic' PlayStation 3 Bug

We already know for sure that Xbox Series X launches in November, with multiple leaks pointing to a November 6th launch date. There's no way the PlayStation 5 would be too far behind, and with various next-gen titles - including a Fortnite bundle - listed for PS5 around early November, it's a safe bet that the console will launch around this time.

With just two months(!) to go until the console's release, you'd certainly hope Sony would announce something in regards to pre-orders and pricing before the end of September. The 9th makes sense for plenty of reasons then... but with Microsoft and Sony continuing to drag their feet in regards to pricing and release details, it's becoming harder and harder to predict what their next moves will be.

For now, my advice would be to carry on saving - if you can - and hope that the price and availability of the console aren't too bad at launch. If not, we'll just have to wait even longer, won't we?
