Sony has tried to keep details about the hotly anticipated console under wrap. But some reports claim that the price of the PS5 has also been leaked. This time the information has been inadvertently leaked by a European retailer. The website which shared the detail is the same that reported that Sony will receive semi-custom chips for the console from AMD. Coming back to the price of PS5, it would be around USD 150, as claimed by leaked information.

It will have SSD storage with the promise of fast load times, oodles of graphics grunt and large bandwidth capabilities. The latest console will reportedly support 8K video, at least to some extent.
