PS5 Slim's release date has reportedly leaked
The US release date for Sony’s upcoming console revision has leaked online and will be offered in a bundle alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Sony previously stated that the new PS5 model would be available in November for US customers, but no specific date was officially provided. Reputable data miner billbil-kun has now revealed that the console will arrive on November 8 in the US.
The console will also be available in a bundle with Insomniac's upcoming Marvel's Spider-Man 2, which is set to release tomorrow and is expected to cost $559.99. The bundle is scheduled to be available on November 10.
The dataminer also revealed that some Japanese retailers, such as Amazon JP, have begun taking pre-orders for the console, which is set to launch on November 10. There is no additional information available about potential release dates in other parts of the world.
The recommended retail prices for the console's digital and disc drive models are $449.99 and $499.99, respectively, though those who purchase the digital version can add a disc drive for $79.99 later on. However, the new digital model is $50 more expensive than the 2020 launch model, but it also boasts a larger 1TB storage drive.
