Only a few hours to wait, the release date of the PS5 is becoming clearer. Sony will hold its press conference this Wednesday, September 16 at 10 p.m. French time, the opportunity to retrieve the last essential information such as the official release date of the PlayStation 5, its price but also the opening of pre-orders. On this point, players will not have to arm themselves with patience and will be able to draw the CB quickly …

Pre-orders open tonight

According to our information, it will indeed be possible to pre-order the PS5 immediately after the end of tonight’s conference. Online stores have already referenced the new Sony console on their product pages. Same imminence for physical stores, on a snapshot shared by an Internet user (@Jordan Schuimer) we can see that Fnac has started its communication campaign for the opening of pre-orders.

For those who intend to position themselves in day one, here are some shops offering the PS5 in pre-orders, it will be possible to reserve the machine at the end of the Sony conference.

Recall that on the competition side, Microsoft has already announced that pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and Series S will begin on September 22, with a release scheduled for November 10. We therefore expect a similar schedule for the Japanese manufacturer, especially as by zooming in on the image above, we can read that the release is scheduled for November.
