Sony has been very tight lipped about the upcoming PlayStation 5. The company has only revealed its DualSense controller, specs and whatever was shown during its Road To PS5 technical briefing. Now, it looks like the price of the controller has made its way to the internet.
BGR reports that Twitter user @PSErebus has revealed the price of the DualSense controllers on another account, @IronManPS5. Also mentioned as part of the tweet is the fact that the controller will be sold separately starting 20 November 2020. This may give a hint as to when the PS5 will be officially available.
DualSense will be sold separately on November 20, 2020 and will be available in North America, Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom at a recommended retail price (RRP) of US$59.99, CAN$59.99, €59.99 and £54.99 pic.twitter.com/7OaDSgWZaV

As for the price of the DualSense itself, it is said to come with a US$59.99 (~RM261) price tag. The number is the same for the Canadian and European market, but a little lower for the UK, at GBP54.99. It sounds about right, considering the DualShock 4 is also priced around the ballpark.
But of course, it remains to be seen if any of these details about the DualSense are accurate. And if they are, it shouldn’t be surprising if Sony decides to switch things up. After all, the company has yet to even reveal what the console will look like, let alone its official release date.
