Expect your local retailer to share pre-order details for the PS5 sometime this week. The console is set to launch in South Africa on 19 November 2020. However, we have a feeling that stock is going to be hard to get hold of. Already, pre-orders opened in the US and most retailers are out of stock.

Sony shared a robust lineup of games for the console including Demon’s Souls, Final Fantasy XVI and more. Catch up on the full showcase announcements down below.
