PlayStation 5 event: $499 with a disc drive, $399 without, on Nov. 12

As part of a PlayStation 5 showcase today, Sony finally revealed the launch pricing for the PlayStation 5: $499.99 for the standard edition (€499.99, £449.99, ¥49,980) or $399 for the “All-Digital” version without a disc drive (or €399.99, £359.99, ¥39,980).

Both consoles will launch on Nov. 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, followed by a Nov. 19 launch in the rest of the world.

The $499 price matches Microsoft’s Xbox Series X pricing on the top end of the next console generation. The All Digital Edition, however, comes in at $100 more than the similarly discless Xbox Series S, which is also a step down in hardware power from the Series X.
