Amazon UK shortly listed a price of $599.99 for the PS5, which they claim was an error.
Today is a huge day for gamers around the world. Sony is set to reveal the PlayStation 5 (PS5) for the first time during a major event this afternoon. As the anticipation builds, some people thought they uncovered the price of the gaming console on Amazon UK.
For a brief moment, the PS5 was listed on Amazon UK for $599.99. However, there appears to have been an internal mistake, forcing Amazon to make a statement.
"This was an error," says an Amazon spokesperson to IGN. This specific pricing mistake has been explained as "a dummy product with a dummy price."
The console was listed in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB models and a reported 118 listings were also available for games. Publishers like Konami, Bethesda, and Rockstar all had listings for unnamed games priced at a $10 increase from their usual retail prices.
The price of the PS5 has been rumored for a minute, with some reports that it carries a manufacturing price of $450. If we're lucky, we'll get ahold of all the details later today as the event is set to begin soon.
Will you be tuning in to hear all the announcements that Sony has in store for us today or are you sticking with another console?
