PlayStation 5 launch date and price ‘leaked’ – and it could be just weeks away

As rumours about Sony's next-gen console, the PlayStation 5 , continue to dominate the headlines, fans are approaching fever pitch in anticipation of a formal announcement about the hardware from the publishing giant.

We've seen a slew of rumours lately, all suggesting that the PS5 is merely weeks away from an official announcement.

God of War and Twisted Metal creator, David Jaffe, has suggested the PlayStation 5 announcement date is weeks away , and the PlayStation CEO, Jim Ryan, has noted that the console's biggest features haven't been revealed by Sony yet .

It's all getting pretty exciting, right?

Well, today, to add fuel to the fire, a new rumour has come to light thanks to questionable information presented over on the 4chan message board.

The leak comes from an anonymous source on the controversial website who is claiming to be a ‘Sony insider.’

According to this leaker, the PlayStation 5 will "be unveiled on February 5, and will cost £449 in the UK and $499 in the US".

Of course, there is no way of verifying this information or confirming that the poster does indeed come from Sony, but it's an interesting rumour.

Right now, we imagine there are a lot of Sony staff being briefed on the Sony campaign for the PlayStation 5, so it makes sense that more staff are getting access to preliminary information.

Whether this new byte of information is legitimate, though, remains to be seen.

According to this mystery leaker, Sony will be hosting an event on February 5 in Sony Hall in New York City.

What's interesting about that is this massive venue, which is booked for events on most days , has that slot spare in its calendar. Curiouser and curiouser, right?
