During the Sony event last night, the new generation PlayStation 5 console has officially announced the price. Accordingly, the Digital Edition will cost $ 399.99, and the regular version with the drive will cost $ 499.99. Sony will allow pre-orders starting September 17, and will officially launch on November 12.
This price point makes the PlayStation 5 go head-to-head with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, which also costs $ 499. However, Microsoft has a cheaper version, the Xbox Series S, for $ 299. The next-generation Xbox will also be officially released by Microsoft on November 10.
By comparison, the PlayStation 4 was priced at $ 399 when it first came out, and is currently on sale for $ 299. PlayStation 4 Pro was priced at $ 399 when it first launched, and is still on sale at this price level. Maybe Sony will lower the price of the PlayStation 4 Pro after the PS5 is released.
In addition, Sony also revealed the price of the accessories that come with the PlayStation 5. The most important one is the new DualSense controller, and it will retail at $ 69.99. $ 10 more than the PS4 DualShock 4 controller.
Pulse 3D wireless headphones will cost $ 99.99. While the remote control for the PS5 will cost $ 29.99. Finally there is an HD Camera, with dual 1080p lenses allowing players to live stream their images, priced at $ 59.99.
