Next PS5 Announcement Reportedly Coming Later This Month

State of Play won’t contain any major PS5 news, as Sony has stated, but a new Bloomberg report suggests a major announcement could still be scheduled for August – Ciiting an anonymous official at PlayStation as the source for this rumor. Macquarie Capital analyst Damian Thong told Bloomberg that he expects the PS5 to cost $400 for the diskless version and $500 for the version with the UltraHD Blu-ray drive. Then added:

I think the core of Sony PlayStation early-adopters will snap up the first several million units quickly. With backward compatibility, their existing game library will work with the new console, so the new machine would be usable right away.

He expects over six million PS5 consoles sold globally by March 2021.
