Several images have surfaced from a major Spanish retailer who may have revealed the PS5’s price. The photos of El Corte Inglés appeared overnight, potentially revealing the cost of both versions of the upcoming console ahead of Sony’s official news.
Both images are from El Corte Inglés which is one of the largest retailers in Spain.Images of the store’s internal systems appearing to show rumors for both the standard and digital versions of the PS5 have been shared on the Telegram messaging service, listing two prices for the console. According to both photos, one version of the PS5 will cost € 499.90 ($ 594 / £ 460), while the other will cost € 399.90 ($ 475 / £ 369). The digital-only version of the console is most likely the cheaper version.

It’s possible that these prices are the retailer’s placeholders for the console, but they line up exactly with similar leaks posted on Amazon France last month. Plus, they’re very similar to the prices we’re expecting to see tomorrow at Sony’s PS5 event, and with that reveal so close, it seems likely that retailers would have been briefed on the console’s official pricing.
If these prices are accurate, it appears Microsoft has managed to cut Sony down significantly. Both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S cost around $ 100 less than their counterparts, and while Sony is likely hoping its game library will help buyers, the inflated price could push many people towards the upcoming Xbox. generation.
