Prince's Gate PS5

To celebrate the PlayStation 5’s worldwide launch, Sony has lit up monuments around the world.

In Canada (Toronto specifically), Sony illuminated the historic Princes’ Gate located at Exhibition Place.

You can check out a video below of the spectacle:

Sony’s PS5 digital and normal editions are now available. The PS5 digital is available for $499 and the regular version with a disc drive costs $629.

You’re able to buy the next-gen console from retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, The Source, Amazon Canada and London Drugs. That said, stock is limited and both PlayStation 5 models are selling in a matter of minutes. Keep tabs on MobileSyrup to see when the console is back in stock.

This isn’t the only Toronto-themed next-gen console marketing we’ve seen this week. On Tuesday, Xbox had a 40-foot-tall (about 12 metres) Xbox Series X floating on the city’s harbourfront.
