The next Playstation 5 has already date and price. And it’s the same as the current Playstation 4 when it was released: 399 euros in its basic model, which only supports games downloaded from the online store. And like its predecessor, it will also be released in November, ready for the Christmas season. The chosen date is November 12 for the US and Japan (their main markets) and the November 19 for the rest of the world, including Spain.
And is that Sony you have already learned what the price they are willing to pay their customers for renovating the video game machine, after the Playstation 3 ended up lowering its initial 599 euros, which made it the most expensive console in history, about 200 euros. Playstation 4 already went directly to the iconic 399 euros, on November 29, 2017.
The new one Playstation 5 will have two versions, as already noted, one with a Blu-Ray HD disc (at 499 euros) and another without a disc, which will allow you to play only with content downloaded from its online store, the PlayStore, at 399 euros. This will be the biggest novelty of the new console, a change in business strategy in a company that is reluctant to leave the boxes.
In a virtual event broadcast this Thursday, Sony has anticipated some of the games that will come out for launch, as new installments of ‘Spiderman‘, ‘Call of Duty’ and ‘Demon Souls’.
