The official PS5 website has just gone live – and you can sign up for updates
Seemingly out of nowhere, Sony has launched the official website for the upcoming PS5. Here’s how you can sign up for all the updates on the next-gen console.
Following the initial reveal of the Xbox Series X, PlayStation fans have been eager for Sony to lay its cards on the table. The launch of an official website which lets you sign up for “news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games” has finally set the wheels in motion.

A shrewd Reddit user appeared to be one of the first to discover that the UK and German versions of the PS5 website had gone live.
If you ‘re eager to know all the latest PS5 goings-on, you’ll have to hand over your email address, date of birth and (as always) prove you aren’t a cheeky robot to get the all-important emails.
While the website reveal is an interesting development, it doesn’t exactly reveal anything we didn’t already know. The message on the website opens: “We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation.”
The main thing the message does is to further dispel suspect rumours that a PS5 reveal could be coming as early as tomorrow – however, it does indicate that we’ll be hearing more information very soon.

The development was, in fact, the second PS5-related news to come out today – owing to it being a big day in Sony’s financial calendar. Sony senior EVP and CFO Hiroki Totoki revealed during an earnings call that the company was yet to decide on a price for the PS5 (via VGC).
Regarding the ongoing decision, Totoki said: “So it’s a question of balance … and because it’s a balancing act it’s very difficult to say anything concrete at this point of time, but when I said smooth transition, we mean that we will definitely choose the optimal approach and that we will try to have the best balance so that we will be profitable in the life, during the life of this product.”
