The PlayStation 5 September 2020 showcase revealed the information most people probably wanted to know. We now know the PS5 release date and price. You’ll be able to pick one up on November 12, 2020 in the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. On November 19, 2020, it will appear in the rest of the world. It will be $499.99 for a standard model and $399.99 for the digital edition.
This means we should soon see movement on another front too. Back at the end of August 2020, Sony opened a direct purchase PS5 pre-order site where people could register with their PSN name for a chance to buy one. It didn’t say when emails would head out at the time, but now that we have a release date we should have a better idea of when.
Also, for the sake of comparison, the next Xbox systems will be out on November 10, 2020. The Xbox Series S digital version will be $299, while the Xbox Series X standard one will be $499.
The PS5 release date is November 12, 2020 for North America, Australia, Japan, and South Korea. It will launch in the rest of the world on November 19, 2020. According to Sony, it hasn’t reduced its production numbers. People can sign up for a Sony direct pre-order opportunity immediately.
