Specific details haven’t been announced.

In late August, Sony began offering a limited number of pre-order slots on its website. Though the offer, Sony allowed select “existing consumers” to register for a chance to pre-order the console. Pre-orders through PlayStation will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis when invitations are sent out. The selection process is “based on previous interests and PlayStation activities,” Sony said. Registering for a chance to pre-order, however, doesn’t guarantee a console.
The PlayStation 4 was released in 2013 for $399, a lower price than its predecessor, the PlayStation 3, which was priced at $499 and $599 at launch. Sony’s competitor, Microsoft, announced pricing and timing for its own next-generation consoles — the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S — earlier in September. The Xbox Series X will cost $499, while the smaller Xbox Series S will cost $299. Pre-orders for Microsoft’s next-gen consoles open on Sept. 22.
