Sony has confirmed that PlayStation 5 pre-orders will open someday on September 16th at choose retailers in Canada. To this point, pre-orders have already gone live at Best Buy Canada.
This comes scorching on the heels of the information that the next-gen console will launch on November 12th, 2020 in Canada at a cost of $629. The all-digital PS5 mannequin will release that same day and be priced at $499.
The pre-orders dropping so abruptly at present seemingly contradicts a earlier assertion from Sony that pre-orders for the console wouldn’t happen “at a minute’s notice.”
