Ben Geskin took to Twitter to reveal that Amazon France has briefly listed the PS5 along with a release date and price. The listing which has since been removed shows the console availability date as November 20, 2020. The pricing of the console looks fairly attractive as well. The Digital Edition of the PS5 was listed for Euro 399 (Rs 35,000 approx directly converted) and the PS5 with a disc drive was priced at Euro 499 which is Rs 43,000 approx directly converted. As for the release date of November 20, 2020, it looks to be close to when Sony could launch the console as the company has said that it will release the PS5 during the holiday season of 2020. To put things into perspective, the PS4 launched on November 15, 2013, in the US. We, however, suggest you take the leaked PS5 price with a grain of salt as this could just be an error listing. 

Both Sony and Microsoft are committed to launching their consoles in 2020 and both the companies have shown off the console design, specifications, new controller and games lineup. The only thing left to reveal is the price. 

Both Sony and Microsoft are playing chicken and looking to undercut the other by $50 or $100 to gain market share faster. In the current console generation, Sony has a clear lead with the PS4 when compared to the Xbox One. However, Microsoft has put in considerable effort to lay the foundation for the next-gen with services like Xbox Game Pass and game studio acquisitions. 

With the upcoming console generation, it looks like Microsoft has the advantage with CPU and GPU power, but the PS5 has a much faster SSD. You can check out the specs of the Xbox Series X here and the specs of the PS5 here. When it comes to the design, Microsoft has gone with a more industrial design with the Xbox series X and it looks minimalistic, like a cube, so to speak. The PS5, on the other hand, has a space-age design with its dual-tone white and black colour scheme. If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then the PS5 will be taller and deeper than the Xbox Series X but not as wide.
