Sony has recently revealed the launch price for the digital and standard editions of the PS5. We are glad that the rumors were actually right.
We have learned that the PS5 console will have two variants: the standard version, which is called PlayStation 5 and which is more expensive, and PlayStation 5 digital edition, which is cheaper, and it also does not have the ability to read optical discs. Of course, the difference between the two versions is not that big, but it really depends on what do you want to get.
About the price
The PS5 console will cost for the standard edition $499.99, €499.99, and £449.99. The digital edition will cost $399.99, €399.99, and £359.99.
When it comes to looking at the price, the standard version of the PS5 is more similar to the Xbox series X, and the digital edition is far more expensive than the Series S.
When will they be released?
These additions will hit the market on the 12th of November in the U.S., New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, and Japan. And, on the 19th of November, it will be available in Europe and other parts around the world.
The difference between the two consoles
The only significant difference between the standard and the digital edition is the ability to play physical media. In short, the console will be able to play games that are purchased digitally, and it cannot play second-hand games.
But the cheaper PS5 is more expensive than Xbox Series X, but it should have more advanced hardware. And the price of the Xbox, which is more affordable, also shows that the quality of the game is not as high as the one on PS5.
