At last, Sony has announced the PlayStation 5 and throughout the past several PS5 Showcases, with Sony held their cards way too close to the chest.
The next generation of PlayStation will arrive on 12th November in the United States, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. With the rest of the world will get the console on 19th November. This is the same week as the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, which means gamers planning on getting both consoles will need to plan accordingly.
The PlayStation 5 showcase also brought us price points for both versions of the next-gen console. The regular PlayStation 5 (disc drive included) will arrive for £449/$499 with the all-digital PlayStation 5 coming in at £359/$399. These are priced very accordingly compared to the next-gen of Xbox consoles, which means you won’t have to worry about one being more expensive than the other.
We went into this showcase expecting Sony to finally talk about the PlayStation 5’s release date and Sony delivered. It’s nice to know that the consoles won’t cost an outrageous amount and just makes the next generation feel that much more accessible because it isn’t going to cost as much as some might have originally thought.
