PlayStation 5 release date: Here’s when it’s coming

The PlayStation 5 is almost here – and it looks set to be Sony’s very own follow up to 2017’s PlayStation 4 Pro console. Well, it might be a PlayStation 7 if rumors and speculation are to be believed.

Take a look through some of the most pertinent parts of the latest wave of leaks and rumors below and get ready to get excited.

According to the Verge, the new console will be announced in May 2019, will feature a massive 75cm-wide OLED display and be much more powerful than the PS4 Pro and launch in the second half of 2019.

If you’ve been lucky enough to escape the madness surrounding the upcoming announcement then PlayStation stock has just gone live in some UK retailers.

Argos is now taking pre-orders for the top console of the bunch, and offers the console in two colors: Sakura Gold and Columbia Gray. In order to get your hands on the Sony PlayStation 5, you’ll need to get your hands on a game from one of three ranges: Action, Shooter, and Sports.

Argos is also gearing up to launch a new reality TV show called PlayStation vs Xbox Ultimate Gaming Showdown – a show that pits players against each other to win over their audience, with 60-60 minutes of gameplay and on-screen commentary to keep the party rolling.

If you’ve been eyeing up the PS5, the only option left is to drop some sterling down the drain and get one in the stockroom to buy online today.

As always, take these rumors with a hefty pinch of salt until Sony officially announces the PS5 at some point in 2019. We may already have a solid idea of what Sony’s next console is set to look like though – read more about the rumors.
