Sony is gearing up to release the PlayStation 5 console in the coming month. After the initial pre-order debacle, Sony seems confident now that the release date is getting closer. The console will release on 12th November in the US, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and South Koria. However, the global release date is a week later on 19th November.
After the initial previews of the Xbox Series X are out, Sony has decided to send out the review units of the PS5 to the influencers and reviewers. The ‘catch-up’ policy that Sony is employing seems to be working pretty well as social media is flooded with the pictures and clips of the PS5 box.
Now Sony is integrating PS5 with its other media franchises. It is the first time Sony has put a 4K UHD blue-ray player on its console, which costs the same or marginally more than most 4K blue-ray players out there with more functionality and features built into it. Xbox Series X features the same player, but Microsoft used it on its previous console as well. PS4 and PS4 Pro could only play 1080p Blue-Ray movies. So, it makes sense for Sony to use its other entertainment business to market the PS5.

A keen-eyed Twitter user who goes by the handle ‘Wario64‘ observed that Sony has started PS5 branding on its 4K UHD Blue-Ray movies. It goes without saying that if you go to a store and order Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse, you will probably see PS5 branding on top.
On the other hand, those who are less aware of the games and movies may get confused between PS5 games and movies, especially during the upcoming holiday season.
