Sony releases the PlayStation 5's release date and pricing

Sony has officially revealed that their PlayStation 5 consoles will release this November, offering different release dates for different regions. Our guess is that Sony wants their launch to be as close to the Xbox Series X/S as possible, but they are unable to meet their planned November 12th release date in all regions. 

 In the US< Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, the PlayStation 5 will release on November 12th. In the rest of the world (including the UK), the console will launch one week later on November 19th. 

Sony has also confirmed that their PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 All-Digital consoles will launch for $499.99/£449.99 and $399.99/£359.99 respectively. This places Sony's pricing far above Microsoft's Xbox Series S though the PlayStation 5 Disk Drive will offer stiff competition for the Xbox Series X with identical launch pricing. 

Xbox Series X/S will launch worldwide on November 10th, before PlayStation 5 in all regions. PlayStation 5 pre-orders are due to open on September 17th.

The digital version is still a better value than the Series S. With that tiny ssd in the S before you take away the conversion from powers of 1000 to powers of 1024 PLUS the OS, it'll be a pretty small drive for games.

You'll end up needing to get the Xbox Expansion Drive which will cost a pretty penny. So really in the long run it's a weaker console that will need a storage upgrade sooner rather than later, and It'll cost you more.

Ps5 is just a better value long term.

Not to say that it's the best choice for everyone though.Quote
