Sony is preparing for the release of the PS5. As reported by DualShockers.com, among others, the publisher is said to have started to set up demo stations for PlayStation 5 in the first shops in Great Britain. A photo of the PS5 kiosk has already been published on the AllGamesDelta Twitter channel. Fans suspect that it will not be long before the PS5 can be pre-ordered. Indications of the early start of the pre-sale phase have already appeared in the past few days. The PlayStation 5 is expected to be released at the end of the year.
Update: Across from IGN.com A Sony spokesman comments that these are not PS5 demo stations. However, the publisher did not reveal any further information. The website pushsquare.com again reported to have been contacted by an employee of the "Currys PC World" store shown in the picture. Such stations have been in the exhibition for around a year. The barrier tape was attached because of the corona pandemic.

In terms of color, the station is based on the design of the console: both PlayStation 5 (buy now) as well as DualSense controller come in a white and black color scheme with blue LED lights. The kiosk shown is not yet finished: there is still no trace of the hardware. Fans suspect that it should not be long before the PS5 can be tried out in the individual shops. In addition, the picture should be an indication that the PS5 can be pre-ordered shortly.
However, it remains to be seen whether it is actually a PS5 kiosk – or the picture shows only an old PS4 station that was dismantled and closed due to the corona pandemic. A few days ago there were rumors of an early one Start of the pre-sale phase for the new console on. In the source code of the Sony shop PlayStation Direct there was a hint that only one PS5 per person can be placed in the digital shopping cart. With the limited sales volume, Sony wants to prevent customers from hoarding the console and selling it for release on eBay and Co. The new console is scheduled to be launched at the end of the year. A final release date and price are not yet known.
