After months of waiting, Sony has finally revealed the PS5 Standard and Digital Editions' price and release date info during the PS5 Showcase, and the next-gen consoles are not only competitively priced with the Xbox Series X and S, but pre-orders go live tomorrow!
Playstation 5 Price
After what feels like the longest wait, we finally have a PS5 price thanks to the PS5 showcase event. More specifically, the standard PS5 price will be $499.99 || €499.99 || £449.99. Meanwhile, the PS5 Digital Edition launches at $399.99 || €399.99 || £359.99.
Both prices are quite competitive with the Xbox Series X, which also runs $499, but the Xbox Series S and the Nintendo Switch are still the budget choices of the generation for the larger, less hardcore crowd. However, PlayStation tweeted after the event to let players know one area where it firmly beat Microsoft to the punch: PS5 pre-orders "will be available starting as early as tomorrow at select retailers."
Playstation 5 Release Date
Playstation 5 will debut in the U.S, Japan, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia and South Korea on November 12, and the rest of the world on November 19. Pre-orders begin on Sept. 17 at select retailers.
The PS5’s release date is also somewhat surprising, since Microsoft isn’t planning to do a staggered launch. Furthermore, November 12 is only two days after the Xbox Series X’s launch date, November 10. Most fans expected Sony to wait at least a week for Microsoft’s hype to die down. While the Xbox Series X will still beat the PS5 to retail, having a two-day lead may not have the same impact as waiting a week between consoles.
