Here’s some potentially bad news for Sout East Asian gamers, it seems Sony has removed the mention of a “Holiday 2020” release for the PS5 on the offiical website for a lot of South East Asian countries! The only one left so far seems to be Singapore.
Here’s a screenshot of the official Indonesia PlayStation website from two days ago (via waybackmachine) that shows the “Holiday 2020” text:
Here’s a shot of the same page but this time, the Holiday 2020 text has been taken out:
Note that aside from Indonesia, the other countries that seem to have the “Holiday 2020” text taken out include Malaysia, Philippine, Thailand, and Vietnam. Does this mean that the PS5 won’t launch officially in those countries until after Holiday 2020? It sure seems like it. As for Singapore, the PS5 page for the country mentions that it has opened the second wave of pre-orders for the PS5 on October 16.
We’ve reached out to Sony regarding this and will update the post if we hear anything back.
