Sony will introduce two new PlayStation 5 bundles next month.
As spotted EBGames in Australia is listing two new PS5 console bundles. Both include two DualSense controllers. This was reported by MauroNL, a Twitter user and analyst. The listings include both a disc version and a digital bundle based on the newer CFI-1216A & CFI-1216B models with 6nm chips. According to EBGames both new PlayStation 5 bundles will be available in February 2023.
An interesting find for sure, although Sony hasn’t officially announced the existence of these new PS5 console bundles just yet. While it remains to be verified that these listings are legitimate, certain PS4 console bundles came with two DualShock controllers.
Sony introduced its updated PS5 console with 6nm AMD Oberon Plus SOC back in September of last year. This model has lower temperatures and uses less power than previous models.
The PlayStation 5 was first released in November 2020. As reported by last week, Sony had sold more than 30 million units as per December 2022. Because of high demand and worldwide chip shortages, it was difficult for consumers to locate the next-generation Sony PlayStation 5. These shortages are no longer a problem, according to Jim Ryan from PlayStation.
“The PS5 supply improved toward the end last year and I’m happy share that December was our biggest month for console sales. We have now sold over 30 million units worldwide. Everybody who is interested in a PS5 should find it easier to find one at retail stores around the world, starting with this point.
Sony announced a major price rise for the PlayStation 5 last August in Europe, China and Japan. Ryan says that the decision was made because of the global economic environment. “We’re seeing high global inflation rates, as well as adverse currency trends, impacting consumers and creating pressure on many industries. SIE has taken the difficult decision to raise the recommended retail prices (RRPs) for PlayStation 5 in certain markets across Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America, LATAM, and Canada based on these economic challenges. There will be no price increase in the United States.”
