Sony Will Release Two New PlayStation 5 Bundles With Two DualSense Controllers Next Month

Sony is expected to offer two new PlayStation 5 bundles next month. According to the Twitter user and analyst MauroNL, the Australian retailer EBGames is presently offering two new PS5 system bundles, each of which includes two DualSense controllers. Based on the more recent CFI-1216A and CFI-1216B versions with 6nm processors, the listings contain both a disc version and a digital bundle. Both of the new PlayStation 5 bundles are scheduled to be released in early February 2023, according to EBGames.

Although Sony has not yet publicly revealed the existence of these new PS5 system bundles, this discovery is quite intriguing. Regardless of the accuracy of these listings, certain PS4 system bundles included two DualShock controllers. Sony released the revised PS5 system with a 6nm AMD Oberon Plus SOC in September 2022. This model has lower temperatures and lower energy consumption than its predecessors.

The PlayStation 5 was introduced in November 2020, and according to a report from last week, Sony sold over 30 million consoles by December 2022. Consumers had difficulty locating Sony’s next-generation system due to strong demand and global chip shortages. Fortunately, as PlayStation’s Jim Ryan stated, these shortages are no longer an issue.

“PS5 supply has improved toward the end of last year, and I’m happy to share that December was the biggest month ever for PS5 console sales and that we have now sold more than 30 million units to consumers worldwide. Everyone who wants a PS5 should have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally, starting from this point forward.”

Sony was compelled to announce a significant price hike for the PlayStation 5 in Europe, China, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, Mexico, and Canada in August of last year. According to Ryan, this choice was influenced by the world economy. “We’re seeing high global inflation rates, as well as adverse currency trends, impacting consumers and creating pressure on many industries. Based on these challenging economic conditions, SIE has made the difficult decision to increase the recommended retail price (RRP) of PlayStation 5 in select markets across Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America (LATAM), as well as Canada. There will be no price increase in the United States.”
