The console will be available starting November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. The rest of the world (except China) will get it a week later on November 19.
The new PlayStation 5 will be available in two versions: The standard version with UHD Blu-ray drive is priced at $499, and the drive-free PS5 Digital Edition is available for around $399.
With the official confirmation from Sony, it is now clear when and which new console will be launched. From November 10, 2020, the Xbox Series X will be available worldwide for $499 and the less powerful and drive-free Xbox Series S for $299. Pre-orders of the two Microsoft consoles will be possible from September 22, 2020.
