PlayStation 5 launches in November, starting at $399 for PS5 Digital Edition and $499 for PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive

New games announced at PS5 Showcase, including Final Fantasy XVI, Hogwarts Legacy, and a new God of War title

This is truly an exciting time for all of us at PlayStation. Over the past few months, we’ve been able to show you a glimpse of the stunning new games being created for PlayStation 5, taking advantage of the console’s unique capabilities to deliver lightning-fast loading, heightened immersion, and a whole new generation of experiences. And we’re excited that the time for you to experience these brave new adventures is almost here.

As we have just announced in our PS5 Showcase, we’re only a couple of months away from launching the next generation of play. Starting on November 12, PS5 will be available in seven key markets: the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The global rollout will continue on November 19 with launches throughout the rest of the world*, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa. PS5 Digital Edition will be available for a recommended retail price (RRP) of $399.99 USD/$499 CAD/¥39,980/€399.99/£359.99 (MSRP), and PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive will be available for an RRP of $499.99 USD/$629 CAD/¥49,980/€499.99/£449.99 (MSRP). Pre-orders will be available starting as early as tomorrow at select retailers, so please check with your local retailer.

We’re pleased to provide choice to gamers with two PS5 console options at launch, depending on if you want a digital-only experience or prefer disc-based gaming. Whichever PS5 you choose, you’ll enjoy the same breathtaking, next-gen gaming experiences. Both PS5 models use the same custom processor with integrated CPU and GPU for high-fidelity visuals, including 4K graphics and ray-tracing support, as well as the same ultra-high-speed SSD with integrated I/O for lightning-fast loading. PS5’s 3D audio and the DualSense Wireless Controller will also provide the same heightened sense of immersion on all PS5s. 

We are proud of the breadth of games being created for PS5, and it’s our goal to continue filling our portfolio with new, rich experiences from the most talented game creators in the industry. Today we shared a sneak peek at the following new games coming to PS5:

These newly revealed titles, along with the games we’ve shown previously, represent the best lineup we’ve ever seen in PlayStation history. Games like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, and Demon’s Souls will launch alongside the console. Our own Worldwide Studios titles will be priced from US$49.99 to US$69.99 (RRP) on PS5. 

Additionally, we know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4. While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.

For PlayStation Plus members, we’ll have a special new offering on PS5 – the PlayStation Plus Collection**. PS5 owners with PS Plus will be able to download and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5 and many more. The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price. 

Also launching this November is a slate of new accessories:

  • DualSense™ Wireless Controller (standalone) – US$69.99/CAD$89.99/¥6,980/€69.99 (RRP)
  • PULSE 3D™ wireless headset – with 3D audio support and dual noise-cancelling microphones US$99.99/CAD$129.99/¥9,980/€99.99 (RRP)

  • DualSense™ Charging Station – to conveniently charge two DualSense Wireless Controllers US$29.99/CAD$39.99/¥2,980/€29.99 (RRP)

This year has been unlike any other, and there have been many challenges the world has faced. Everyone at PlayStation, along with all of our partners in development, publishing, technology, and retail, have devoted a lot of effort to launch PlayStation 5 in time for the holiday season. We’re all working closely together to achieve our mission of delivering the best that gaming has to offer to our community. I truly want to thank you, the fans, for your tremendous support (and patience!), while we take this journey to PS5. We can’t wait for November to arrive – when you’ll be able to get a PS5 console in your hands to begin exploring new adventures and creating new epic memories for many years to come.

*Availability in each country subject to local import regulations. PS5 launch date for China is still under exploration and will be announced at a later date.

  • Digital edition for me

    • Enjoy paying $80-90 per digital game

    • Wait what?? how much are digital games gonna cost.

    • Digital games cost exactly the same as physical games.

      The whole reason why the digital-only console costs $100 less is because they already make larger margins from digital copies.

    • @nonstop-madness I disagree. They’re saving some money by not including certain hardware in the digital version.

    • @Nippy_Kangaroo stop spreading lies. The games aren’t going to cost $80-90.

    • The Disc version is also the Digital version.

      The Digital Only is all about control.

    • WOW. Sony just killed Xbox.

      PS5 (digital) for $399

      Launch exclusives:

      Spiderman MM
      Demon’s Souls
      Sackboy
      Godfall
      Destruction All-Stars
      Oddworld
      Jett

      Final Fantasy XVI is a PS5 console exclusive.

      Spiderman looked absolutely incredible and the bosses in Demon’s Souls were absurd. Who would buy a Series S if a PS5 is merely $100 more? At the same time a diskless PS5 is $100 less than Series X and it has actual launch exclusives like Demon’s Souls.

      The first year of PS5 is ridiculous with Horizon, God of War, Final Fantasy XVI, GT7, R&C, Returnal, Deathloop, Ghostwire, Miles M, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy, Godfall, ect. PS5 is the console u want.

    • Digital as well you all know that when Playstation do sales they do sales lol they have a sale for about anithing the spring sale the golden week sale the chritsmas sale the blah blah blah sale last one real (not) but point and case you will get really cheap games on their sales.So please for everybody out here misinforming people please stop.

    • 80euro’s is 95dollars,, 70pound is 90dollars,
      ask the canadians and aussies how much they have to pay, south america ive seen crazy prices. Stop defending sony..

    • @ninja_bear01 Sony makes a killing off of digital games. I never understood the whole paying full price to rent something you’ll never own.
      Physical for me only after I get the Xbox first. Ps has nothing to offer for next gen at all except more screwing it’s crowd base over. They proved that with this reveal.

    • @DirtyD0814 alright, back to the carnival with you, you clown.

    • @Nonstop_Madness
      A blu-ray drive isn’t a $100 even on the consumer market, it’s not going to be $100 on manufacturing level for the company owning the patent.
      $100 difference is purely to incentivize digital console purchase.

      Next-gen titles will cost 10 more of whatever your local currency is. If you’re in USA, it’s gonna cost 10 bucks more, if you’re in UK it’s gonna cost 10 pounds more, if you’re in EU it’s gonna cost 10 euros more, etc…

      Digital games and physical games cost the same, however physical copies vary in price from store to store and you have a lot more options with sales and bargains, not to mention access to used games market.

      If you buy the digital edition, you lock yourself out of a lot of discounts and sales by being able to shop around. The extra 100 on the physical edition is a quick and easy offset when you consider how much less money you spend in the long run buying physical games over digital only.

    • @sephiroth1161
      It’s true Sony runs sales all the time.

      No man’s Sky is $50 on PSN, always has been.

      It’s been $5 for years now in physical copies if you go to gamestop.

      Now, No Man’s Sky may not be a great game, but it’s a perfect example. Sony runs sales all the times, but it’s always sony running sales. Why would you lock yourself to one place’s prices when you can get a wider selection?

    • @Anedime

      You can buy digital from other retailers as well.

      And I am 99.999% positive No Man’s Sky has been on sale on PSN.

    • So not only is PS5 the biggest console in history in size, its also a Power Hog 😵 at 350 Watt.

    • @PrettyBad

      Didn’t they discontinue buying digital codes in brick and mortar stores?

    • Please share india price and tip low the price in india

    • @PrettyBad
      You can buy digital from amazon as well, you can’t buy it in most stores any more and they’re not subject to discounts and sales. Physical discs go on sale to make room for new inventory all the time, what little digital offerings these stores have are in card form and are never discounded.

      No Man’s sky was on several sales, down to $30, all these sales were while it was already $5 at gamestop so I don’t see why pointing out technicalities does anything when I’m still in the right.

      I’m not telling you what to do, what to buy, whatever you pick I wish you the best, but all digital console will be more expensive in the long run, this is not up to debate, you only need to go to a Gamestop or any walmart’s bargain bin to be proven as much.

    • Nippy_Kangaroo why do you people think that sales don’t exist on the playstation store? And why do you people think that you’re not paying just as much as us when new video games come out?

    • So when is PlayStation gonna put up the pre-orders on their website

    • It would be nice if they fix the damn servers so we can actually purchase the new console for pre order

    • Reasons for physical disc PS5
      1. You can sell your games on the market place,offerup,letgo etc
      2. You can trade games with friend and others.
      3. You can borrow and let others borrow games.
      4. You can compare prices between all stores to find the lowest price.
      5. You can buy digitally from psn as well.

    • Playstation, You guys should make a physical copy of Ghost of Tsushima for the PS5 with the multi-player included, enhanced and remaster for the PS5. Ray-Tracing, Sound Echo Tracing, better Frame Rate and Resolution.

      That would add another game to the list of PS5 games as physical releases people could buy if they haven’t already.

    • When can we expect to be able to pre-order digital versions of the game’s for the PlayStation 5 on the PlayStation Store?

      I’m buying the disc drive version of PlayStation 5 to have the peace of mind to be able to barrow game’s from friends or rent a game I’m not 100% sure I’ll like.

      For me if I really like the game I’m buying a digital version of the game. I’m not one to ever sell my game collection. Plus they are preserved for life without the worry of scratches, being damaged, lost, or worse stolen.

    • I wanted a disc version but I never got a notification about pre-order upset about this cause sign up for multiple pre-orders
      from different places and I didn’t get one notification from any so I missed out 🤬 🤦‍♂️I’m literally checking everyday now

    • Microsoft made some big moves with Bethesda. They won’t stop there, they aren’t done just yet.
      The next target for Microsoft is most likely Sega.
      You cannot let that happen.
      You need to sign contracts with all developers that all their existing IPs on Playstation will forever be released on Playstation, day and date, same price as competition for all developers.
      Sony, you got to do everything in your power to make sure that all games are released day and date on Playstation, including day and date on Game Pass will also release on Playstation Collection at the same time. Secure a forever contract without an expiration date with all developers.

      I’d also consider purchasing CD Project Red into Playstation first party studios after you’ve secured all the games from all developers, but CD Project Red games could be on multiple console, unless Microsoft doesn’t allow Bethesda to be publish games on your console.
      These monopolies are not good for consumers and I don’t like them one bit.
      It’s nothing new from Microsoft.
      They’ve never built anything, they just buy everything.

  • Can we get more information on pre-orders? Were the people already selected from the previous sign up? Thank you so much in advance

    • I cant wait ps5💙

    • That’s what I’m trying to find out if people that registered will get to pre-order it early!!

    • I think it said in the article as soon as tomorrow at certain retailers so I would assume by tomorrow people should start receiving notification emails if they are selected.

      Great job Sony. You keep being you.

    • Good question. I don’t know if I was selected or do I have to spend all day tomorrow trying other vendors.

    • Looks like the retailers didn’t get the tomorrow note. Walmart and Target already went live and show sold out. Amazon’s page is down and Best Buy just gets an error. Really wish Sony was more transparent with the email sign-ups. I was really impressed with what I thought was a good move to combat scalpers, undone in one crazy pre-pre-order evening.

    • Pre orders start tomorrow at selected retailers according to Geoff Keighley twitter.

    • My thoughts exactly. All other shops are selling out of pre-orders and now my only shot is through this sign up.

    • preorders started today and 2 places i have notifications with are sold out . i thought they said they will give plenty of notification when that would happen , same day isnt plenty of time

    • I got an e-mail yesterday at 8:30pm EST from Best buy about the pre-order (thought it was today?!) & already @BestBuy @Target @GameStop @Amazon and @Walmart said it was already sold out after 3 minutes?!?!?! What kind of mess is going on here?? I also have a Sony online account and of course no preorder notice :( and I am 100% sure I will never hear from @Sony @PlayStation either. All that matters are the bots, not someone who actually wants it for his child :( Why even sign up on their site for pre-sale notification when they really dont utilize that. #AlreadyDisappointed

    • Exactly let’s speak about pre-order releases and stores/vendors that participate (be safe out there)

    • I’m here for the exact same reason. The pre-orders are gone everywhere. Guess we got hosed.

    • Just this morning (Friday, 9/18) successfully preordered from Sony, using their invite process and waiting for about 35 minutes after the start of the process for my turn.

      Amazon, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and the rest really seemed to mess up their preorder process, but Sony’s was pretty slick – at least if you followed the directions AND got the invite, and if they don’t sell out before it’s your turn.

    • YEAH any word on pre orders with the pre registration . we others posting receipts any news???

    • Exactly

    • Yes, I’d love to know how the pre-order selection is made. I signed up but have not received an email. I have two PS4s, or household has three memberships and we have purchased tons of digital content.

      Pretty sure our house is a dedicated PlayStation family having owned the original PlayStation, the PS2, PS3 and then 2 PS4s. How did we not get selected for the pre-order?

    • 599 and 499

      Ball park for Canadians.

    • PlayStation 5 Digital Edition: CAD$499.99 (RRP)
      PlayStation 5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc: CAD$629.99 (RRP)

    • I’m thinking about changing to Xbox, people need to be treated well as a consumer. I’m 42 and have been playing games on Atari With a black and white tv, I’ve owned 2 of each PlayStations since they started, move controllers (6), cameras, VR headset and countless games. Sony can’t fix this issue, damage is done, they will have no means to do anything but say “oops”, being a faithful Sony follower I’m at an end, Sony hasn’t come out to say anything of the mess. Guess they don’t care about revenue and their gamers, screwing people over leads to an end, no more lies.

    • $629 big ones for the drive version and 499 for digital only. Good luck. so with canadian taxes over 700 for the first one and like close or over six bills for digital only. I’ll pass for 2 to 3 years

  • I saw the back of the console and was sorely disappointing to see yet again only 2 USB ports, and no PS Camera port, are you serious?

    • It’s because errrrm…

      I have no idea, Sony want to save the whole 0.05?? 😁

    • The PS4 has zero rear USB’s and the Pro has one.

      Why are you complaining, exactly?

    • They announced a while ago an adapter was needed to use the existing camera. At least it’s free.

    • @DokiKimori Wireless Headset, External Hard Drive,and charge cable that is 3 usb right there

    • There is a usb on the front and a usb c for the controller on the front

    • 2 on front, 2 on back. Specifically 2 USB-A and 2 USB-C.

    • Well for one,

      External HDD
      PSVR
      Camera (via adapter)

      3 ports is not enough.

    • I understand everyone’s needs are different, but why would you need more than 4 USB ports? Is it so hard to unplug the controller charger when you’re not actually charging?

    • They may have updated this post since some of you posted. There are FOUR total USB ports, of varying speed and formats.

      Besides, USB hubs are a thing if you REALLY need more devices. What’s the big deal?

    • Should be at least four and 2.

    • They are selling a camera for the ps5 so it has something for it

    • the problem a vast majority of consumers don’t need them. Unfortunately, for those of us who do, we’re just left hanging because, yeah, a 5 cent component. I have a pro and 1 charging cable, 1 PS Gold headset dongle and since I play FFXIV one keyboard dongle. That’s the reality of only 3 USBs. Do I need more? Not atm and I don’t care about the camera but still. imo they should equip 5. But look across all components from tvs to receivers. Even the more expensive models just aren’t offering many HDMI ports. if I need to unplug something from my PS4, TV or receiver to use something else there’s a problem. but again, 99.8% of consumers don’t need the extra slots so they make a business decision that adversely affects those of us who do have a need for more slots

  • Can’t wait. Need to pre-order now.

  • Will you match the Xbox Series X price of $649 in Canada?

  • Good, now i know the price. I just need to throw my money to the first shop that makes me pre-order my new console :D

  • What audio formats with the 4K Blu-Ray drive support? Will it support audio pass-through for AVR direct decoding?

  • Enjoyed the event. But why were some games shown as “PS5 exclusives” when they are coming to PC and PS4?

  • will we need to upgrade to the new camera for to use our existing PSVR?

  • PlayStation 5 is the best place to play. And they proved it. God of war is the reason why I’m buying the PS5. Can’t wait 💙

    • It will probably get pushed back to 2022

    • The last one was a huge fail.they lost the whole touch. As far as the new one it’s not worth getting a new system for a new game. Of course I never buy any ps games at launch. I always wait until their 20 or less at best buy, amazon or walmart. Don’t get me wrong I love GoW ( ps3 and before) .

    • @ DirtyD0814 ahhh, with your preference for shooty shooty pew pew hack and slash experiences over than something with even the barest semblance of artistic flair and depth suddenly makes your constant shilling for the Xbox make so much more sense.

  • in Canada i can’t wait to get my ps5 disk drive version heck yeah November 12th here i come

  • Gonna need that pre-order link, guys. You want my money or not?

  • When will PlayStation users that expressed interest be notified if they were selected to preorder directly thru Sony? Need to know if I should go ahead and plan to order thru another retailer!

    • Very much this!!

    • I got an e-mail yesterday at 8:30pm EST from Best buy about the pre-order (thought it was today?!) & already @BestBuy @Target @GameStop @Amazon and @Walmart said it was already sold out after 3 minutes?!?!?! What kind of mess is going on here?? I also have a Sony online account and of course no preorder notice :( and I am 100% sure I will never hear from @Sony @PlayStation either. All that matters are the bots, not someone who actually wants it for his child :( Why even sign up on their site for pre-sale notification when they really dont utilize that. #AlreadyDisappointed

    • Why did people wait to get a email? When every shop just sold it the moment they said the price

  • Why are the games 70 dollars but 80 Euros? 70 dollars is 58.34 Euros…

    Even with the lame “sales tax” excuse it would be 70 Euros, not 80…

    Also why is a PS3 remaster 80 in the first place???

    • Because they are greedy and milking gamers for every penny

    • What kind of remaster are you talking about?

    • Demon’s Souls is completely rebuilt from the ground up. It is a remake, not a remaster.

    • Nippy shut up and stop spreading lies

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo the prices are literally listed on this very page, why are you mad at Nippy for telling the truth?

    • Jisatsu- Sony is known for nickel and diming (e.g. proprietary flash cards for psp and vita) akin to Apple. Hence why many consider them the Apple of consumer electronics.

    • Will ps5 work on hdmi 2.0 4k 120 he?

    • The Crash collection, the Spyro collection, Medievil, Shadow of the Colossus, etc. were all remakes, and cheaper than “standard” games. No reason why this one should be double their price.

      Also, as much as I like it, Demon’s Souls is a pretty “budget” Souls title. It’s not as long as the others, and has less weapons/armor/enemies/areas than later titles.

    • I hate the idea of $70 games. We already have any major game dropping with a $60, $70 or $80, a $100 and sometimes a $120-200+ version. but that just means now I get to buy less games. Games are selling in record number yet Americans pay has been stagnant for decades. I can not afford, at even $60 to buy every single I want let alone at $70.

      And Demon’s Souls for $70!!?? I absolutely love the game but come on. Purchased from Playasia at launch the Hong Kong/English version because I knew Sony wasn’t going to bring a game like that stateside. Purchased it again about a year later when Atlus published it. And now the remake is $70!?? While Spiderman Miles Morales is $50? Makes me wonder how short of an experience Miles Morales is going to be….

      life goes on but $70 is just crappy. Keep lining the CEOs pockets you fat pigs.

    • Misery Princess

      My guess is that EU has multiple languages. It costs alot of money and time. I think this is why they slapped and extra €10.00 on every game to cover the costs, thats only a thought mind you. The other could be the EU themselves, they need to find a way to fill there pockets somehow when 🇬🇧 leaves 😉

      Obviously I may be completely wrong.

    • It’s a Remake not a Remaster.. ya moron Xbutt

  • So it looks like $69.99 will indeed become the new starting price point for next-gen games.

    • Demon Souls is $69.99

    • Unless you live in Europe, then it will be $96…

    • I’m calling it now, all the top-tier AAA games from Sony Worldwide Studios will be $70. That is not a good thing. God of War, Horizon, everything.

    • This does kind of suck, but honestly I am not surprised with the cost increase. Remember when they went up for the PS3? Also, with inflation, wage increases, and production values, it really is shocking they haven’t gone up sooner. Buying a crappy game at launch will hurt even more now though.

      For me, I own every collectors edition of all first party games that they have come out with, so I am not too upset about those prices changing. I already pay the most.

    • Sadly, the price increase was inevitable. I remember original Playstation games being about UK£35 (US$45) and even some Nintendo 64 games at UK£50 (US$65). The price has been fairly constant for 25 years. Not that I agree with the price increase, when you break down who gets how much. But that’s business for you!

    • You have to remember that a PS1 game would sell considerably less numbers of copies (around 1/10th to 1/100th or even 1/1000th). A “good” PS1 game would sell 400,000 copies, whereas a game is considered a failure if it sells less than 5 million.

      5 million x 50 is way more than 35 x 400,000 + “inflation”. 250 million vs just 12.

      Generally the more a product sells the cheaper it becomes, especially in a market flooded with way more supply than possible demand.

  • When will we see the UI? I hope PS4 communities will be a thing next gen!

  • What happened to the pre-order early through PlayStation links?

  • I just saw the back of the Playstation 5. No PSVR ports.

    So now I have to choose between 4K 120HZ VRR on my new TV….. or having my VR plugged in and usable for games like Hitman 3.

    Is the breakout box 48Gbps HDMI guys!? Come on. Why do I feel punished constantly by you guys for trying to support you early.

  • Waiting for the pre-order invite from PS so I can order my stuff, can’t wait. It’s like Christmas and having to wait in your bedroom to open the gifts.

  • Playstation!
    When will Sony direct preorders happen? From the site that asked you to put in your PSN name?

  • Is the ps5 399/499 USD or is it the same price for USD and CAD

  • When will we receive the pre-order email if we were selected?

  • hm, Playstation Card users get any benefit buying directly from Playstation online?

    • I wonder is the PSN points x 3 carries over?

    • I was wondering this, too.

    • It’s 5x points for hardware (effectively 5% back in PS Store credit, if you redeem for PS Store gift cards). If it doesn’t detect it’s a hardware purchase just because it’s from Playstation Online, you send in photos of the receipts to the card provider (haven’t done it since they switched providers).

      Used my PS Card to buy $500 PS5, but since the don’t charge until it ships, I won’t know how the points show up for sure until November.

  • When will be able to see the ps5 ui?

  • Looking forward to my birthday this year, less than a week before release day. Now, hoping I get a preorder invite. And I want that UHD drive – the one in my XBox is awful, those guys don’t know how to make a media player.

    At least if the preorder falls through, some great new games will still be playable on my PS4Pro. It’s not how I *WANT* this holiday season to go, but it’s a cool consolation to those who can’t afford or can’t find a PS5 right away. Can’t wait for Spider-Man and Horizon!

  • Y que pasa con el PlayStation Now?
    Estos juegos del plus, perfectamente se jugarían con el Now.
    Yo solo quiero jugar online a otras entregas, porque tengo que pagar por un Plus o un Now para juegos que no voy a iniciar nunca? Porque?

  • Are you kidding about the 10 euro extra for PS5 games in Europe? That’s 95 USD!

    Ridiculous.

    • I call BS on $70 base games. Such a nonsense, greedy developers taking an advantage on a new console users.

    • @lastoffireflies. games cost more to produce and developers are highly highly underpaid. It is time

    • its the first price hike in decades, you should be kissing ass it wasn’t this cycle.

    • @ctc453

      Utter BS. You cannot prove the value of a next gen experience needing to be $70 that you can’t also apply to $60 current-gen or PC gaming experience.

      1) The biggest difference with next-gen is access to better tools/hardware, less need for compressing/shortcuts, and a higher focus on performance/realistic fidelity. I highly doubt that requires a profit of $700 million instead of a measly $600 million.
      Did you watch the Unreal Engine 5 demo or the PS5 spec video? A lot of that stuff was focused on how convenient next-gen tech will be for developers; A.I. that can predict & generate mechanics for you, artists being able to drop their models straight from their 3D modeling software with no compression, PS5’s SSD that removes the need to work around loading screens, etc.

      2) Last of Us 2 is one of the most graphically impressive games ever made, it came out 2 months ago and for current gen. You really think it would’ve taken that much labor/budget to get the game running at the quality of next-gen standards if they decided to wait for a PS5 release? Probably not. I mean, to be fair, they did achieve this by putting their workers on crunch, so if an extra $10 will get them to stop overworking their employees I guess it’s worth it.

      3) PC gaming has had higher performing gaming experiences far before PS5, with some of the most well-known AAA titles running way better on a computer. Why aren’t those games $70? I own Doom Eternal for PC. It gets a smooth 120fps, 144hz refresh rate, 4k resolution, and various other graphical options all for only $60. Why is it $10 extra for better gaming performance all of a sudden, just because Sony is doing it now?

      TL;DR: There is no proof next-gen games need to be $70 to sustain the market, they’re just greedy asshats.

    • So I completely agree with the Euro thing… that seems like a mistake.

      However, there was a price hike for the PS3 too and everyone freaked out. IT is bound to happen just like everything else going up in price. Inflation causes the need for price hikes…
      And you prove yourself wrong @Weapon12. The Last of Us is a perfect example of why the games need to cost more. Their production values are huge. The devs that actually put effort into every little detail like TLOU ptII deserve to be compensated. Your understanding of economics seems to be lacking.

    • @PhantomMenace84 your wrong. With devs and everyone working on the games are paid adequately. Between inflation costs and the growing number of gamers alone that more than evens out the price difference. There is no need to raise prices at all. The thing you are failing to realize is most Sony games will be going up in price. Only a couple other companies have said this as well so it is not at all needed. It is called greed. With Sony it’s because they cannot rely on their other divisions to bail out their PS division anymore. Sony in a whole has been taking a dive o er the last five years period.

    • You guys are ignorant. Developers paid not enough because companies underpay them, but companies still make millions if not billions. Yes, game production might cost more than before, but a lot more people are playing games compared to before. Price hike is unreasonable

    • UK PS5 games are priced £59.99, which is €65.00 Euro.

      EU Prices are a whopping €80.00

    • It’s been proven tons of times that even $60 is too much for a game, so any of you justifying $70 please go educate yourself, not only that, retailers buy games for $50 and sell them at $60, so digitally sony is making an extra $10 off every purchase. Please do research, $60 was already over priced, especially since most companies cut content and sell them as dlc or mircotrans.

  • Wow, the price of ps5 games are way too much, gonna pass on ps5 for the foreseeable future

    • Yeah, think I’ll do the same…This is getting absurd

    • you should see it in how much money per hour of play

      movies (ticket plus popcorn): 25$ for 2hr of entertainment = 12.5$/hr
      80$ for 15hr of entertainment = 5.3$/hr

      you can do the same thing with the console but you gotta spread it out over years, it will still work out

  • I simply cannot wait. And you guys are giving the community GOW!? 🙌🏻

  • Love the Playstation Family.

    im coming for you demon souls

  • I’m sorry to say this, but you’re off your rocker with those €80 game prices.

    • games cost more to produce and developers are highly highly underpaid. It is time

    • Games don’t “cost more to produce”. That’s a common misconception, there’s more tools and shortcuts than ever, publishers just spend more money on advertising.

      Developers aren’t working being paid remotely close to minimum wage either…

    • @ctc453 wrong games do not cost more once you figure in inflation. In fact gaming has went from 509 million players 20 years ago to over 2.5 billion today. 20 years ago selling 100k copies was a feat today your laughed at if you don’t sell 500k. Add that many games have dlc now so you don’t get the full game for full price anyways these companies are taking in the money now.

    • It is time, you say? Ctc453

      Indeed, time to stop buying games near launch or at all even. I have been a great fan of PlayStation for 25 years, but €80 for a single game is too much for me to justify.

    • Luckymouse

      I know what you mean. I can give two reasons why the €80.00 asking price.

      1. Translation costs for multiple languages in one continent.

      2. EU leaders have to find a way to fill there pockets when 🇬🇧 finally leaves on January 1st.

      I could be wrong, but who knows 🤔

  • €80 is a disgusting price for games. It’s pure contempt for European gamers to slap that kind of price on games. Dollar-for-Euro pricing is bad enough but at least it’s a relatively close exchange when taxes are considered. Having Euro prices higher than the same prices in dollars (just for games) is profiteering.

    • Gamers will moan and complain about the game prices but will still buy them. Sony doesn’t care as they know fans will suck it up

    • @nippey kangeroo you are out of your mind. Europeans are going gamepass all the way if Sony is going to do these 80€ prices. I’ll be buying a series x in that case

    • @K_Play3station The majority of mainstream games like Call of Duty, and FIFA don’t release on Gamepass so you’ll still need up paying the same “next gen” price.

      But yeah, it’s pretty crazy that games will be €80.

    • @Nonstop_Madness this is true but noone plays just one game. Game pass has plenty of games on there NEWER games at that, not all these old games PS NOW gives you. Xbox just offers so much more than PlayStation this gen.

    • 🇬🇧 and 🇯🇵 have just made a huge trade deal😀

      EU not happy 🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇

  • Tremendo un evento magnífico,con respecto a los precios,ya bajarán porque 80 euros,ojito.

  • I cannot wait. But can we get more info on backward compatible games? What PS4 games will be BC on day one? Will there be a list? What PS4 games will be enhanced for PS5? How about PS1 and PS2 classics? I am waiting to purchase Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima to play on PS5. Any PS5 upgrades on those?

  • Will all physical PS4 games be compatible with PS5?
    Will the Logitech G29 wheel be compatible with PS5?
    Thanks for the replies

  • Did you guys saw the new prices of PS5 games???

    I undestand US prices going +10$ to “match” prices in EU (69.99€) and the rest.

    But now we find out that games in EU are going up too (79.99€), why? In a world where the value of the $ is lower than the € we get to pay more for everything all the time

  • Seriously Need info on Pre-order so can camp outside…..Wal-mart , Target , GameStop , K-mart , Amazon Let us know ?

  • Will god of war ragnarok be on ps4 ?

    • maybe if it really does come out in 2021 but maybe not if it gets pushed back to 2022 or later not much is known yet about the new god of war and r they going to upgrade the old one cuz if so ill wait to play it cuz it is still in my backlog

    • NO
      It’s a PS5 ONLY GAME

  • Thumbs down for the $70 games. 👎

    • Only way Sony will care is if people vote with their wallets, Sony knows full well players will pay extortionate amounts

    • Yeah, but for us europeans its $95. This aint right.

    • Can you name another entertainment product that hasn’t seen a price increase in over a decade? Games can’t stay $60 forever, be glad that they have for this long.

    • @Zampano I’m sorry that’s not a good excuse. In 20 years gaming has went from 500million gamers to over 2 billion. These companies make plenty from their games. They also have all the dlc crap now as well. As for buying games I never buy them new anyway and always go physical.
      What will end up happening is fewer games will be bought and companies will start to fail. That’s not a bad thing though as the gaming industry has become very over saturated. Indie companies are growing faster than ever and will continue to with the way things are.
      My suggestion to anyone is to hold off on buying any game full price. They go down on price in a short amount of time and there is always something else to do in the meantime.

    • @DirtyDo814
      Just curious if that is your view on the movie industry, the gas prices, food prices, house prices, electric prices… it is the way of life, it does suck, but that is what happens. Every single market ends up raising their prices.

      Now I do feel bad for Euros… that really doesn’t seem right.

    • @Zampano

      In over a decade? PS4 games digitally are already €70 where they were €60 on PS3.

      Revisionist history isn’t cool, man.

    • @luckymouse
      You’re right in that I am referring only to price in my market (US), and since OP referenced a $70 price tag, I’m assuming they’re in the same region. The markup in the EU is ridiculous and shameful, and I’d be curious what the justification for it is.

    • @NukePistols

      $70.00 is okay. In fact the US is getting the best deal. Europeans, excluding the UK, are getting screwed unfortunately.

    • $70 is not ok in any situation. It was already proven over and over that even $60 is over priced. But companies cut conent and resell it as dlcs or deluxe editions, mircotrans etc, there is no reason to raise the price, pc is more powerful than both consoles yet their prices don’t change, their games are actually cheaper, weird huh? Ignore the sheep saying 70 is fine

  • 80€ prices for games is a joke
    This + the delay in release feels like a slap to the face for us Europeans

  • So are we getting native backwards compatibility where we can play from our DISC or not?

    • No not native, only a select few PS4 games

    • Yes, every PS4 game runs on PS5.

    • Just PS4 games. Meanwhile I can play my one games on my series X along with my 360 and og Xbone games. Ohh and game pass offers new games. Ps Now offers only old games.

    • @DirtyD0814, no, you cannot play any 360 or OG XBOX games on your Series X. Only 40 OG XBOX games and around 30% of your 360 games.

      Game pass suck. You pay to rent games randomly, you don’t know which. After some time, you lose them, whether you pay or not. That sucks more than everything.

      Game pass is a casual’s sub. Let us be man…

  • Does the PS5 support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision (at least for the 4K UHD blu-rays)?

  • Very disappointing and weird that the blog post has more information then the 40 minute game reel. Making horizon cross gen?? What are you guys thinking? And then to top it off you don’t show the interface or internals or even a real playstation 5? I’ll pass, thanks but no thanks.

    • Yeh, they really didn’t do well with this.

      I wanted Spider-Man, Horizon & Sackboy which are all on PS4 apparently, and cheaper!

      + Demon Souls will come to PS4 and Xbox apparently.

      What a mess

    • Well, at least I can platinum it twice :D

    • @bedhead1

      Demons Souls is made by Japan Studio and published by Sony, why would it be on Xbox?

      And those games are coming to PS4 because not everyone has $400 to afford a PS5, especially during this poor economy.

    • PS_man1984 Demon Souls is a exclusive yes. It coming to xbox was a mistake made by Sony’s own people by saying it.

      As for everything else yea Sony has failed hard this gen.

    • @bedhead1
      Demons Souls is a PS5 ONLY game

  • sorry but need to ask, will PS4 disc games work on the PS5 as well?

  • Why would I bother buying a PS5? I’ll play your games when they release on PC. Thanks for saving me $500 plus tax come November.

    • Not really saving you money. Especially if you go high spec on pc but hey you can always play gamepass and not own your games. I rather get a PS5 myself but hey to each their own. Bunch of cheap bastards on this blog. I thought they knocked it out of the park. Just let me order the thing , preorders just went up and already sold out most places. The few xbot trolls in this thread need to stop as well you guys are obvious. Some folks cry so much when they have to pay for things buy used, your cheap and probably buy used anyway. Fans will not hesitate to support what they like, I and millions like me will be willing to pay to support what we like. JISATSU_KIDDO awesome job staying on top of these trolls. GAME ON!

    • @LOCO209 It saves you money in the long run actually. As far as you calling people cheap because Sony has failed this gen just shows how much of a fan boy you are. Enjoy getting so little for so much.

    • You should TOTALLY get an Xbox. Then you get to wait for everything. Wait for E3, Wait for games, Wait for next gen, Wait forever lol.

    • @Dustinwp
      Keep Dreaming ya moron
      NO PS5 Games gonna be on PC

  • When is pre order and will there be enough to go around ?????

  • I was keen to order a PS5, super excited actually.

    However, €79.99 for a game? What are you charging in the U.K.? You literally make more money then ever on digital games then physical taking a huge % and now this?

    Spider-Man and Horizon and Sack boy are on PS4?

    Umm… no.

    • €80 is for the physical game, expect to pay €90+ for the digital version as they are usually more expensive than physical edition. I’ve decided not to buy ps5 after seeing the prices. I will wait and see how game prices plays out and make my mind up next year

    • that’s not at all how that works.

    • Literally the same, my hype went from 100 to 0 in 1 sec when i saw €79.99..

    • I don’t even pay 60 for a game, I sure won’t pay 70 in the USA. I’ll wait until the games go down in price and buy them for 20-30. At that point I’ll be able to get a good deal on a ps5 and will already have a Xbox which with game pass I won’t have to worry about waiting long for new games to come to. Sony doesn’t offer any newer games ever on PS NOW.
      Huge pass on ps5.

    • Jiangsu, well it is how it works right now, isn’t it?

      Physical games in stores will retail at €60 while games on the PlayStation Store retail at €70 for PS4.

      I can only hope that the €80 price point is the digital price and that physical games are cheaper.

    • What about Dolby Vision for PS5? Is Sony so poor or stingy to offer this feature? I think my next gen this time will be the Xbox

    • Retailstores here ( Netherlands ) sell the physical versions for € 70-75. So the € 80 is digital in Sony’s store. People with the Digital Edition PS5 are getting ripped off in the EU with € 80.

    • @bedhead1

      UK PS5 games range from £51.99 to £59.99.

      Europe prices are €80.00 unfortunately 😵

    • @DirtyD0814
      No one cares your Cheap ass Xbox and their BS low quality Games

  • YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo, that is cool and stuff
