Sony’s PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12 with a standard edition priced at $500 and a digital edition with no disc drive priced at $400.

Sony confirmed the new console’s price during a September showcase event that also included gameplay trailers for upcoming titles like “Spider-Man: Miles Morales,” “Final Fantasy XVI,” and “Resident Evil: Village.” Other confirmed PlayStation 5 titles include “Gran Turismo 7” and “Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart.”

The PlayStation 5 will be available first in North America, Japan, Mexico, Austrailia, New Zealand, and South Korea, followed by a worldwide launch on November 19.

The PlayStation 5 will compete with two new Xbox consoles for the affection of gamers throughout the 2020 holiday season. Microsoft confirmed that the $299 Xbox Series S and $499 Xbox Series X will be available on November 10, just two days before the PlayStation 5.

The PlayStation 4 is the most popular video-game console of its generation, having sold more than 100 million units worldwide since November 2013. While new PlayStation and Xbox consoles are just a few months away, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles are selling out amid the coronavirus pandemic and shelter-in-place orders.

Preorders for the PlayStation 5 are live now at Target and Walmart and others on social media have reported being able to preorder the console in person at GameStop stores. We’ll continue to update this post as preorders become available at other stores.
