PS5 – release date and price finally confirmed by Sony

Sony revealed the launch date and price of PlayStation 5 during the so-called Showcase live stream, after we have been waiting for months to get a complete insight into the next-generation console.

The PS5 will be launched in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on November 12, while the rest of the world (including Norway) will get the console on November 19. The regular PS5 variant will cost $ 499.

The PS5 Digital Edition, on the other hand, which has no optical drive, will cost a hundred dollars less, and will end up with $ 399 (3600 kroner). Both versions will be launched at the same time. Note that these are American prices, and that here in Norway we probably have to settle for paying something more than just the exchange rate.

In comparison, Microsoft confirmed last week that Xbox Series X will also cost $ 499 when it launches on November 10, along with the cheaper and slightly more modestly equipped Xbox Series S (to $ 299.) This means that Sony will launch slightly later than Microsoft – but that the price of the console is nowhere near as high as some feared.
