Sony Interactive Entertainment took its time, but as part of the PS5 showcase, CEO Jim Ryan finally came out with the information we've been waiting for months.

PS5: how much do the consoles cost?

Sony kept it a secret for a long time and also waited almost until the last moment at the PS5 showcase until it was finally revealed how much the PlayStation 5 costs and when we can look forward to it.

In the past few weeks, estimates and leaks have already made the rounds, but now we have it official:

  • PlayStation 5: 499.99 euros
  • PlayStation 5 Digital: 399.99 euros

When will the next-gen console appear in Germany?

So far it has always been “end of the year”, but we don't have to wait that long.

In the USA, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea the PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12, 2020. In this country we have to wait a little longer, to be precise, a week. From November 19, 2020 it will also be on our shelves.
