Sony reveals PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition price and release date
- Sony revealed the prices and release date for the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition on Wednesday.
- PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition launch on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, and November 19th in the rest of the world.
- PlayStation 5 costs $499.99 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition costs $399.99.
During its PlayStation 5 Showcase on Wednesday, Sony announced that the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition will launch on November 12th. The standard PlayStation 5 with a disc drive will cost $499, while the Digital Edition without a disc drive will cost $399. We still don’t know when preorders will open for the new consoles.
Specifically, Sony says the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition will launch in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea on November 12th. The rest of the world will have to wait until November 19th.
Sony managed to get the price of the Digital Edition console down to $399, which was the same price that the PS4 launched at back in 2013. Although Microsoft won the pricing war with the $299 Xbox Series S, Sony has a massive lead after consistently outselling the Xbox One for the last seven years. At the very least, it should be a much more competitive launch this time around, especially with Xbox Game Pass having taken off in recent years.
