The rumours come courtesy of Roberto Serrano, who was replying to a post from VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb about all the major gaming events this summer.
Serrano wrote: “July 13 > #PS5 price, release date and pre-order. TBC”.
One of the reasons why Serrano’s tweet is of interest is the Twitter user previously correctly revealed the date of the re-arranged PS5 event before Sony confirmed it.
When asked further about the rumoured PS5 price and release news, Serrano said there was “no event planned at this time”.
Which, from the sounds of it, means we could just be getting the announcement drop in a PlayStation Blog post instead of during a live stream event.
This would be reminiscent of the way Sony unveiled their DualSense controller, revealing the news out of the blue on a Tuesday.
