PS5 Price, Release Date, And Pre-Order Info Have Finally Been Revealed
PS5 Price – It was Xbox’s turn last week, and now we have a price for the new PlayStation. Sony has set a $400/$500 split for the Digital Edition vs. standard PS5, charging $100 extra for the privilege of a disc drive for physical media. If you need a reason to splash for the disc version, look no further than the new $70 benchmark for many new titles — disc games might be a little easier to find used or on sale. At least accessories like those DualSense controllers aren’t more expensive this time around.
Retail stores like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop started taking pre-orders shortly after Sony’s event ended, but if you missed out on the first wave, keep checking – a few people have reported success hours after they supposedly sold out.
PS5 Price, Release Date And Pre-Order Info Have Finally Been Revealed
Supposing you can secure a day-one purchase, you can expect it to see it November 12th in the US, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, before the PS5 launches everywhere else on November 19th. Sony says they’ll have more PS5s than they did PS4s at launch.
CEO Jim Ryan also offered more clarity on the PlayStation 5’s pricing ($499 with a Blu-ray drive and $399 without), saying it was decided “quite early this year.” That may be a response to rumors that Sony adjusted its pricing plans in response to Microsoft’s Xbox One Series X launch.
It didn’t say exactly how many units would be available upon launch, but Ryan said there would be more PS5s than there were PS4s when it launched in 2013. At that time, the company sold 2.1 million PS4s in the first two weeks after launch, and 4.5 million between launch and the end of the year.
