The PS5 (or PlayStation 5) is Sony’s long-awaited next-generation console. It costs $499.99 / £449.99 / AU$749.95 and will be available from November 12, 2020 (in select markets such as the US and Japan) and November 19, 2020 for the rest of the world, including the UK. Sony is also releasing a Digital Edition of the console, which removes the disc drive and costs $399.99 / £359.99 / AU$599.95.
After months of speculation, leaks and announcements, we now know pretty much everything about the PS5. Though Sony’s marketing strategy has been to drip-feed information, we’ve now seen the PS5 design (including a full teardown video and a look at the new UI), know all about the PS5 games coming to the console – including Horizon Forbidden West and Spider-Man: Miles Morales – and been given an in-depth look at the console’s specs and features. These include an NVMe SSD for super-fast load times, ray-tracing support, a built-in 4K Blu-ray player, and backwards compatibility with thousands of titles in the PS4’s game library.
However, and most importantly, we finally know the PS5 price and release date – and it’s set to go head-to-head with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. Both consoles will be hot property this November, and will be vying for consumers’ cash come the holiday season.
The PS5 is vastly different console to the PS4, with its space-age black-and-white color scheme representing a noticeable shift from PlayStation designs of the past. There’s also more than one PS5 console releasing this year, too, as Sony has also confirmed it’s going to be releasing a PS5 Digital Edition – a streamlined, digital-only console without a disc drive.
Both consoles are going to be pretty powerful from what we know about the PS5 specs. We’ll cover them in full below, but specs-wise, the PS5 (and its digital alternative) are rocking an AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz, 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and a custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU that puts out 10.28 TFLOPs of processing power. That might sound like nonsense if you’re not up on this kind of jargon, but prospective PS5 players have a lot to be excited about.
We’ve got full PS5 details for you below, including detailed breakdowns of pricing and availability, so read on to find out everything you need to know about the PlayStation 5.
