While Sony will start selling the PlayStation 5 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on November 12th, it plans to release the console in Europe and other parts of the world on November 19th. That means most people will have to wait an additional week to try and get their hands on the company’s next-generation console.When the system does make its way to the continent, it will start at €400 throughout the European Union and £360 in the UK.
Sony didn’t offer a reason for the delay, but a recent Bloomberg report said the company expects to manufacture 11 million PS5 units by March 2021, four million fewer than it had previously planned. Sony pushed back against those reports, saying: “While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false. We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production.”

Tesla shares fall in premarket as Musk dampens 'battery day' expectations

Tesla shares sank 4% in premarket trading Tuesday, after CEO Elon Musk sought to manage expectations ahead of the electric carmaker's "battery day" presentation.
Musk's firm is expected to announce on Tuesday details about a new type of battery cell it has developed. Analysts had hoped the technology could help Tesla maintain its edge over rivals in the electric vehicle space, but Musk dampened such hopes Monday when he cautioned about hurdles to reaching mass production.
"Important note about Tesla Battery Day unveil tomorrow," Musk stated via Twitter, often his go-to for communications about the company. "This affects long-term production, especially Semi, Cybertruck & Roadster, but what we announce will not reach serious high-volume production until 2022."
The billionaire said Tesla would increase battery cell purchases from suppliers Panasonic, LG and CATL, but warned "we still foresee significant shortages in 2022 & beyond unless we also take action ourselves." Tesla has built a prototype manufacturing line for battery cells at a lab in in Fremont, California, near the company's U.S. car plant.
Tesla shares fell over 6% in after-hours trading as a result, after closing almost 2% higher on Monday at $449.39. Still, shares of the firm are up over 400% year-to-date on the back of a stock split and optimism around entry into the S&P 500. On Tuesday, the firm's shares slipped about 4% in premarket to trade around $431.
