Pseudo price rumors concerning both variants of the PS5 console and all of the related accessories, including the Pulse 3D wireless headset and HD camera, have been posted on Twitter. The same highly spurious source claims the PlayStation 5 will be first launched in Japan on November 14 and will cost 49,980 (US$466) for the Blu-ray model.

Before launching into the hard-to-believe alleged price list for the PS5 consoles and all of the accessories, it must be disclosed immediately that the source, @IronManPS5, is notorious among the PS5 fan community for offering up numerous leaks and rumors about the Sony hardware. Previously known as @PSErebus, the frequent Twitter poster has made unsubstantiated claims about the next-gen console in the past, so please browse through the information in the following table with the prerequisite pinching salt to hand.

Unsurprisingly, the rumors stated by @IronManPS5 have already been contested, with one commentator suggesting that the actual prices for the PlayStation 5 would be US$549/499/549 for the Blu-ray model and US$449/399/449 for the digital edition. The prices offered by @IronManPS5 reflect those that were offered up recently by a faked Amazon France leak, which further questions the validity and credibility of the supposed PS5 console and accessory prices in the above table. (In addition, a Canadian price of CAD$49.99 is mentioned for the PS5 game Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.)

However, regardless of the truth behind these rumors, there are some interesting things to note, including the possibility of a November release for the PS5 and that Japanese gamers could be the first to get to try out the hardware. The PS4 was released much later in Japan compared to other markets, with a lack of home-grown game development chosen as the reason for the delay. Perhaps this time around Sony would like to please its domestic fans first. The mention of a separately sold vertical stand for the PS5 is dubious, and its existence has been fairly questioned by some who would expect Sony to include any required stand with the console itself.

Lastly, it needs to be repeated that @IronManPS5 is an unreliable source and that the information included here is simply interesting for the sake of speculation. For instance, the Twitter poster claimed on June 10 that Sony would reveal the PS5 hardware design on July 7, yet the console was actually revealed on June 11. Fans might have to wait until August before Sony actually starts revealing any official prices for the PlayStation 5 and its accessories.
