Sony Announced the price and release date of the PlayStation 5, its next-generation game console.
- PlayStation 5 will cost $499,
- PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will cost $399.
The prices of PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition were revealed at the PS 5 Showcase online event. Although its price and launching date have not been revealed in India, you can get information from Amazon, Flipkart, Sony Center, Reliance Digital, Croma, and Games The Shop. The new prices and launch date are expected to be updated soon.
PS5 will launch in the US, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on November 12 and the “rest of the world” on November 19. Pre-orders for the next-generation game console will begin today. Sony is yet to announce the price and release date of PS5 for the Indian market.
Sony’s strategy is similar to that of Microsoft. The company introduced two models of PS5. One of these will come in 4K Blue Ray Drive and the other in Digital Edition. However, the Digital Edition will not have a disk drive. Sony PS5 gaming consoles can be placed vertically and horizontally. The design of the PlayStation 5 is futuristic, which will be significantly different from Micromax’s flagship Xbox Series X. Talking about the accessories, camera, headphones, remote control can be given in PlayStation 5.
