It feels like a huge relief to now have all the major PS5 information that we’ve been waiting for. The price is now locked at $499 / £449 for the standard PS5, and $399 / £349 for the Digital Edition, and we now have a release date too. Well, it’s a staggered release date as the rumours suggested, with the first wave launching November 12 (which includes the US, Canada, and Australia), and the rest of the world will get it on November 19.
So we now know the PS5 price, the PS5 launch games, and that all-important release date.
“With PlayStation 5, we are making a significant leap to deliver a truly new generation of transformative play experiences that will redefine expectations for what games can be,” said Jim Ryan, president, and CEO of SIE.
“Worlds will be richer and more beautiful, they’ll captivate your senses in ways you didn’t think possible, and you’ll be able to experience them much more seamlessly, with lightning-fast loading. Today’s showcase is just a glimpse of what’s to come in the next generation, and we want to thank our community for taking this journey to PS5’s launch with us.”
