According to a somewhat reliable leaker IronManPS5 on Twitter, the PS5 will cost $499 in the US and £449 in the UK when it launches at the end of the year.
That tracks with the rumors we’ve heard so far around Sony’s next-generation games console. But the leaker also revealed that the PS5 Digital Edition will be $100 and £100 less than its disk drive-equipped sibling, costing $399 and £349 in the US and UK respectively.
IronManPS5 has also leaked the price of the DualSense controller charging dock, which will supposedly cost $29.99 and £34.99, as well as the HD camera accessory that’ll cost $59.99 and £54.99. The leaker further claims that the PS5’s Pulse 3D Wireless Headset is set to cost $159 and £129.
Knowing the hefty tax inclusions that gadgets go through while shipping to Kenya, consoles may end up costing more by about KES 20,000 in Kenyan stores. So, to be safe, one will have to part with almost up to KES 70,000 for the main console and about KES 60,000 for the Digital Edition.
Better start saving up.
