According to an industry insider, Sony has recently increased its efforts to obtain exclusive rights. PS5 pre-orderers can look forward to a lot of exclusive content.
- 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.

The fact that Spider-Man will only be playable on the PlayStation in the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers has attracted a lot of attention – but industry insider Imran Khan has now stated that this is just the beginning of Sony’s new strategy. According to Khan, Sony has increasingly bid for exclusive rights to games and other content for the new generation of consoles – and has also been able to land some very big names.
Khan says that some games that were supposed to be released on multiple platforms will now first appear exclusively on the PS5 for a period of time. This strategy is intended to further strengthen the PlayStation brand. It is not yet clear to what extent these statements will come true, but if Sony has actually invested a lot of money in exclusive rights, it could ensure success in the console competition. PS5 pre-orderers could definitely look forward to a console with lots of attractive games and content.

Pre-order PS5: the question of price
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.
