We finally have it. Sony has announced the PS5 release dates and pricing today during its PlayStation 5 Showcase stream, and it is pretty much in line with expectations, with the full-fat model coming in at $499/€499/£449. The discless model will be $399/€399/£359.
The release dates are a little scattered, much to my own personal annoyance. The PS5 will release on November 12th in the US, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. For the rest of the world, the PS5 will release on November 19th. That is going to be the longest week of my entire life.
Now that we finally have PS5 pricing and release dates confirmed, we can stop reporting on the rubbish rumours that have been circulating since, oh, what, 2014?
The PS5 Showcase stream was full of new reveals, so head back to the homepage and find them all there.
[Correction: The original version of this article incorrectly listed the PS4 Digital Edition UK price at £349.99.]
