The PlayStation 5 Release Date In Canada
Sony has announced that the PS5 will hit the Canadian market during the holiday season of 2020. This means it will likely come out within a few weeks of its competitor, the Xbox Series X. The PS4 was launched on November 15, 2013 so it is safe to assume that the new PS5 will also be released around the mid of November.
According to a recent leak, the exact PS5 launch date can be November 20, 2020. An authentic profile on Twitter claimed that the Dual Sense controller is dated to come out on November 20 and will cost between $65 and $70 in Canadian dollar. But all this remains to be seen.
What will be the price of PS5?
The price of the new PS5 has been a mystery after spec release of the new PS5, but Amazon France has already made the sale of PS5 online with the price of 499€ (around $750 CAD). The PS4 costed around $400 when it first came out, a price that undercut the competing Xbox One by $100.
Sony may not pull the same trick again, though, as Microsoft is in a better position to undercut its competitor this time around. Because of insane specs, the price of the new PS5 is a mystery for everyone. Sony promised that the price of the console will be equivalent of the quality of the product.
Controller And Other Specifications
Dual Sense PS5 controller which have some impressive-sounding features such as haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a built-in mic. But what is most interesting about the Dual Sense controller is its completely different and new look, the space age black and white color theme which gives us the hint about its design, and it is our assumption that the PS5 design will also be the same as the controller.
Now let’s move towards the specifications of the new PlayStation. The new PS has 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5 GHz CPU with a GPU of 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23 GHz, RDNA 2 architecture.
