PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, and November 19 in the rest of the world including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia, and South Africa, Sony announced.
It will cost $499.99 / €499,99 / £449.99 / ¥49,980 yen for the standard edition and $399.99 / €399,99 / £359.99 / ¥39,980 yen for the Digital Edition. Pre-orders will be available starting as early as September 17 at select retailers. The PlayStation 5 consoles’ availability and pricing announcement by Sony will undoubtedly excite fellow console gamers and Sony fans. Interestingly, the pricing for the PlayStation 5 (disc edition) is somewhat similar to the Xbox Series X, which is priced at US$499. That being said, the PlayStation 5 Digital edition is priced at about US$100 extra compared to the Xbox Series S (retail price of US$299). That being said, the difference in pricing is justifiable from Sony’s point of view because gamers aren’t getting a ‘slower’ version of the PS5 with the Digital Edition—unlike the Xbox Series S, which is said to be slower compared to the Series X.
Among the games released exclusively for the game console is the latest installment of the role-playing game Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy XVI .
