Sony’s latest PlayStation 5 showcase started with the usual previews of upcoming games, from OddWorld Soulstorm at Demonic souls. But anyone who was patient enough to wait for the stream to end got a reward – an award and a release date. The Sony PlayStation 5 digital edition will cost $ 399 and the standard edition will cost $ 499. Both are released on November 12.
For comparison, the Xbox Series S will cost $ 299 and the Xbox Series X will cost $ 499. This puts the “standard edition” of every new generation model on a square foot. Microsoft has the advantage over pricing for lower tiers and through a payment program, but Sony retains the lead in exclusives.
For example, on launch day, PS5 owners who also subscribe to PlayStation Plus receive a bag of free games to download immediately. These games include God of war 5, Bloodborne, Monster Hunter World, Final Fantasy XV, Fallout 4, Mortal Kombat X, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Ratchet & Clank, Days gone, Until dawn, Detroit Become Human, Battlefield 1, Infamous second son, Batman arkham knight, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us Remastered, Persona 5, and Resident Evil Biohazard.
If that, the prices and a release date weren’t enough to brag about, Sony has another tease for you. At the very last moment he played a short clip letting us know that God of War Ragnorok come.
The PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 digital edition will release on November 12, just two days after the last Xbox consoles.
