Recently, prominent games blogger BillBil-kun took to Twitter to share some intriguing news, suggesting that Sony’s PS5 game console may be in line for some price drops in various countries and regions, despite the fact that it has been on the market for quite some time.
🚨 UPCOMING SALE 🚨
Following my first tweet of the day, it won't be a price drop but only a SALE on the Standard PS5 in mentioned countries

Bill Bil-kun shared the news in two tweets full of emoji emotion, giving the announcement a funny twist. In the first tweet, he hinted at possible price cuts for the PS5 in the UK, US and Germany. In the second tweet, he then revealed the specific price cut dates for each region.
According to the announcement, the PS5 will be reduced by £75 in the UK, bringing the price down to £404.99. Meanwhile, in the United States, the price will be reduced by $50, making the PS5 available for $449.99. In Germany, gamers can expect a price drop of €75, which will bring the PS5 down to €474.99 after the discount.
It is worth noting that the price of the PS5 on the US market had not increased prior to this revision. As a result, the PS5 remains cheaper in the US than its European counterparts. What is more, these price changes are not limited to Sony’s official PlayStation Store, but also apply to numerous stores in the UK, US and Germany.
This revelation has sparked excitement among gamers in these locations, as the potential for price reductions on a highly sought-after gaming system is undeniably attractive. As the PS5 continues to grow in popularity around the world, Sony’s deliberate decision is expected to attract even more gamers to the platform.
While BillBil-kun’s tweets have sparked interest, gamers should keep an eye out for official announcements from Sony and verified stores to keep up to date with any developments regarding the price cuts. For now, the potential savings look good, and gamers in the UK, US and Germany are eagerly awaiting the official adoption of these price cuts, which will make the PS5 even more accessible to a wider audience of gamers.
