Since its official unveiling in June, expectations for the PS5 have never been higher. This is especially so with the sheer volume of first-party AAA titles that will come with it at various points after the console’s launch, including Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Demon’s Souls, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and God of War: Ragnarok, and third-party titles such as Final Fantasy XVI, Resident Evil Village, and Hogwarts Legacy. Now the question is when exactly these titles will release so we can relish every single pixel of them on the PS5.
Customers in Singapore can pre-order the console online via the following websites from 18 September @ 11am onwards via the following list of stores.
The release date of the PlayStation 5 comes just a little over a week after the 10 November launch of the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S.
