Breaking news for all the video-game lovers as Sony has just announced the price and pre-order of its next-gen console – PlayStation 5. The price of the PS5 will sit at $499.99 / £449.99 / AU$749.95 which is the same as that of Microsoft Xbox Series X. This is the price of the PS5 console with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, but if you want to buy the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, then the price cuts down to $399.99 / €399.99 / £359.99.
Well, the $499 price of the PS5 shouldn’t be a blow because a price higher than this wouldn’t be acceptable as Microsoft is offering pretty much the same specs at $499. However, the pre-order of the PlayStation 5 has begun and you can book your order at Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and GameStop now.
