A well-known retail chain briefly listed the prices for the PS5 and the console’s most important accessories. We’ll give you an assessment of the leak.
- How much will the PS5 cost: Sony has not yet announced an official price for the PlayStation 5. Some industry insiders assume an approximate price between 400 and 600 euros.
- When will the PS5 be released: The PS5 is expected to be released before Christmas 2020. The exact release date has yet to be announced by Sony.
- When can the PS5 be pre-ordered: The PS5 is expected to be pre-orderable when Sony announced the price of the console.
The French retail chain Carrefour caused a sensation this week when a topic page for the PS5 was briefly found on the homepage – and there were also specific information about the price of the console and accessories. The page has since been deleted.
The PlayStation 5 with a disc drive was offered by Carrefour on the site for 499 euros. The “All Digital” edition should cost 399 euros. These sums seem to be quite possible and also correspond to insider estimates. However, the prices set for accessories are less realistic. For the camera, controller, remote control, headset and controller charging station, 49.90 euros were charged for the online offer. In view of the fact that the PS4 controller currently costs just under 60 euros, this is highly unlikely. Instead, these seem to be more like placeholder prices.
It remains to be seen whether at least the realistic price for the consoles will turn out to be correct. Sony has not yet responded to the Carrefour leak.

Pre-order PS5: The price question
The PS5 official price is undoubtedly one of the big issues that fans are eagerly awaiting. Sony is not yet looking into its cards in this regard – but given the premium components, it would not be surprising if the PlayStation 5 should initially cost more than the previous console. The PS4 was launched in 2013 at a price of 399 euros. A recently viewed PS5 placeholder on Amazon UK was offered there for 599 British pounds, which would be the equivalent of about 667 euros. But the placeholder has meanwhile been removed and Amazon has already described the short-lived offer as an “error” in an official statement.
