The day everyone had been waiting for is finally here. Sony has officially announced the date of launch and price of PS5. Microsoft made an announcement just a few days back with an aggressive price policy and announced its measures to make the console more transparent than ever. This meant that Sony had to come up with something extravagant.
And that is exactly what happened at the PS5 showcase just a few minutes back. Sony’s next-gen console will start from $399 (digital only version) and would be released for the US on November 12. It will be released for the entire world just a week after.
PS5: Who will win the console war?
Mind-bending exclusives have been the PlayStation’s USP for a long time. And the PS5 showcase did not fail to deliver. A range of exclusives has been lined up. These include Spider-Man ‘Miles Morales’ and Hogwarts Legacy (set to release sometime in 2021).
See you in November! pic.twitter.com/CjrQ65rJ5a

“Hmm. I guess I want a PS5, but I probably don’t need to get it immediately on launch.”

£499 is really not a huge price for Ps5
— YH (@Yemihazan) September 16, 2020
The PS5 is $500 which is what I was expecting, no way it was gonna be less than that lmao. Digital PS5 is $400 which is pretty cool too. It obviously couldn’t be as low as the Series S, but I still think that’s a great price for the digital only version

My Thoughts. Sony Made a VERY compelling argument on buying a PS5. Great Show. They’re paying Big money for exclusives and Taking a HUGE loss on the price of their console!

The PS5 showcase marks the event the entire world had been waiting for. The new-gen consoles promise to provide us with a kind of experience that has never been witnessed before.
Just before the end of the showcase, Sony in a very sly manner slipped the price of its consoles. Ladies and gentlemen, this marks the beginning of the console war. The toughest question on the table right now is, what side are you on?
