PS5 Prices And Release Dates Revealed


After waiting with bated breath, we finally have the Prices and Release dates for the much anticipated PS5 console.

The war between Microsoft and Sony wages on as we found out last week that the Xbox Series X will be sold for $500/£450/R8200.

Following suit, we have Sony that has now revealed that the PS5 will be sold for $500/£450/R8200, while the digital edition, with the same console, but no Blu-ray drive—will go for $400/£360/R6500.

The PS5 will be released on the 12th of November for the US, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, with the rest of the world getting the new console on the 19th of November. Preorders will officially begin on the 17th of September 2020.

The global rollout will continue on November 19 with launches throughout the rest of the world, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia, and South Africa.

PS5 Prices And Release Dates Revealed

The price for the standalone Dualsense Wireless Controller was also revealed and it will go for $69.99/€69.99/R1100.

Previously it has been revealed that as far as hardware the Xbox Series X outweighs the PS5 in most ways except for maybe the SSD onboard the PS5 which might be its “secret weapon” in the war of consoles.

Sony had already disclosed a large number of big games that will be exclusive to PS5. These games include Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank, and the much-anticipated sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn: Horizon: Forbidden West.

They have also secured several deals with publishers to make their games available exclusively on PS5 (alongside PC). These include companies such as Bethesda with Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo.

When the PS4 was originally released it went for $399 and it now retails for only $299, as well as the PS4 Pro which has gone down in price since its launch. Does this show a pattern as far as the final pricing of the PS5? Time will tell what Sony has in store for us.

The future of gaming is now in the hands of these two consoles.
