Amazon has listed the PS5 weight on its German arm’s website, revealing the upcoming next-generation console clocks in at 4.78kg – that’s lighter than the original PS3, you’ll be pleased to know.
PS5 Release Still On Track For Holiday 2020
Sony is still targeting a holiday 2020 release window for the PS5, which mirrors what Microsoft has in store for the Xbox Series X. This is unlikely to change unless Microsoft decides to delay its new console, in which case Sony may also choose to postpone its own console.
The PS5 will release alongside a new iteration of the DualShock controller series, dubbed the DualSense. This pad will feature a similar design to its predecessor, but includes new features such as haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and a new Create button that replaces the Share button on the DS4.
The PS5 price has yet to be announced by Sony, but a former Microsoft executive feels it won’t cost more than $499.
