Sony’s PlayStation 5 will release in Thailand in early February

Online pre-orders begin on January 22

Sony Interactive Entertainment has finally announced the long-anticipated release date for its PlayStation 5 (PS5) consoles in Thailand.

Sony announced the news on Friday, January 8 via its website, noting that the consoles will be available from February 5, 2021. Pre-orders, however, are scheduled to go live on Saturday, 22 January at 11AM local time.

Unlike pre-orders for the consoles in other countries in the region, Thailand’s pre-orders will take place solely online, meaning no physical gaming stores will be open for pre-orders.


The standard edition of the PS5 – which comes with 4K Blu-Ray disc drive – will cost THB$16,990. The digital edition of the PS5, which will not include a disc drive, will cost THB$13,990.

Each console will come with a single DualSense controller, a base for the console, and power cables. Additional controllers and peripherals such as the DualSense charging dock, Pulse 3D headphones, media remote and HD camera can also be purchased.

The PS5 launched on November 12 in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand Japan, Mexico and South Korea. The console then made its way to the rest of the world on November 19.

In other PS5 news, the console will be making its way to Indonesia on January 22. Pre-orders are currently sold out, although more console units are expected to be released throughout the year as Japan has discontinued the production of multiple PS4 models to make way for more PS5 consoles.
