It’s the news that we’ve all been waiting for and we now, finally, know how much we will pay for a brand new PS5 and when we’ll be able to touch one. The answer to those questions came at the very end of an online game showcase yesterday – PS5 launches on November 12, starting at $399.
That $399 will get you your very own PS5 Digital Edition, which obviously comes without a disc drive of any sort. If you’d prefer somewhere to slide your games, you can upgrade to the disc version and pay $499 instead.
Pre-orders went live today on Amazon, but stock just ran dry, and is likely to be the same at other retailers and for some configurations. Accessories are also available for pre-order as well, again with limited stocks seemingly available.
- Pre-order: PS5 Digital Edition: $399
- Pre-order: PS5 Regular Edition: $499
Interestingly, that launch date of November 12 isn’t a worldwide one, either. Instead, the US, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea will be able to play on day one. The rest of the world will need to wait until November 19. The odd one out is China, with no release date at all right now.
The staggered release might suggest that previous reports about low manufacturing yields might have had some truth to them, with Sony giving itself an extra week to build enough consoles for everyone to buy.
