Sony’s newest next-gen console finally has a release date in many countries except India. However, the company has revealed the prices for the Indian market. The console will hit most of the countries on 15th November 2020, at first, and will come back for a second round on 19th November 2020. Most of the details are out in the open now. The only thing unknown is when PS5 will hit the Indian Markets. Unfortunately, PS5 will take longer than expected to release in India since Sony doesn’t own the PS5 trademark.

The company confirmed that the PS5 is releasing on 15th November 2020 in Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States.
