PlayStation 5 in November

The PlayStation.Blog announces the PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12th in North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea and November 19th everywhere else. This will come in two forms, a $399 PS5 Digital Edition and a $499 PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive. They offer detailed hardware specs and a full rundown of launch titles. Here's an overview:
As we have just announced in our PS5 Showcase, we’re only a couple of months away from launching the next generation of play. Starting on November 12, PS5 will be available in seven key markets: the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The global rollout will continue on November 19 with launches throughout the rest of the world*, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa. PS5 Digital Edition will be available for a recommended retail price (RRP) of $399.99/¥39,980/€399.99/£359.99 (MSRP), and PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive will be available for an RRP of $499.99/¥49,980/€499.99/£449.99 (MSRP). Pre-orders will be available starting as early as tomorrow at select retailers, so please check with your local retailer.

We’re pleased to provide choice to gamers with two PS5 console options at launch, depending on if you want a digital-only experience or prefer disc-based gaming. Whichever PS5 you choose, you’ll enjoy the same breathtaking, next-gen gaming experiences. Both PS5 models use the same custom processor with integrated CPU and GPU for high-fidelity visuals, including 4K graphics and ray-tracing support, as well as the same ultra-high-speed SSD with integrated I/O for lightning-fast loading. PS5’s 3D audio and the DualSense Wireless Controller will also provide the same heightened sense of immersion on all PS5s.

PS5 DE seems priced perfectly. No interest in the Series S with half of its specs being last gen performance. Looking towards the PS5 with Demon’s Souls and an RTX 3070 in my near future.

Doesnt the DE mean that you have to always buy directly in the PS Store?
So no more sales on physical versions if you use the DE?

November 5... so, if the Presidential election doesn't go the way you hope (whatever that might be), you can hopefully lose yourself in the PS for the next four years.

Quite bold of you to assume there will be electric power, or a wall for you to plug your PS5 into in November.

That's a done deal. Either way the US citizenry loses while corps, banks and rich fucks win.

Yep, undercutting your competition by 20%, THAT is aggressive pricing.

Nvidia and AMD could learn a lesson or 2 from this on the GPU front.

I don't know what it's like where you live but where I live AMD is generally 40%+ cheaper than Intel and Nvidia. What lesson does AMD need to learn?

40%?!? You must have missed the 5000 series launch. They either matched prices with Nvidia at the same performance bracket or just slightly undercut them by a few dozen dollars.

That's hardly 20%, much less "40%".

So we didn't know pre-orders were ACTUALLY the day before than the day they said they were, until an hour after it started, so BB was naturally sold out... But the wife persevered on a slowly loading EB and nabbed one. Whether that turns out to be legit and actually shipped/received in a few months, we'll see : )

Didn't see any launch titles worth jumping on; I thought Horizon was going to be a launch title, but it wasn't in the list, so I don't know... However, I'm more interested in re-playing some PS4 games from an SSD; namely, Bloodborne, which I haven't had the patience to replay since launch because of how slow that thing chugs along. Seems a good time to also play through Horizon, God of War, maybe finally finish Spidey...

AMD is cheaper, although not so much in the Ryzen area anymore. If you're talking video cards, AMD isn't even in the same arena, they're effectively a Nintendo Switch versus a PS5. They've been talking about Big Navi for YEARS. YEARS. They were talking about it when the 2080ti launched. I can't imagine it'll be able to approach a 3080.

Dam seriously! I was going to preorder one today but apparently, they started selling it yesterday. WTF?!?! Don't say preorders start tomorrow, then let stores sell them the day before. *sigh* Oh well no launch console for me. Not too broken up about it since I am more interested in a RTX3090 but I just hate when crap like that happens.

There's going to be more allocations released before launch, this was just the first batch. It's been going in and out of stock all night at various retailers.

Picked up a disc edition with Demons Souls remaster which is apparently a launch title now, quite the pleasant surprise. Sony funded some pretty amazing games last gen and I expect more of the same this one.

I guess my will I / won't I thing about getting this at launch is the fact that the only game I'm interested in at launch is Spider-Man, but that's apparently coming out for the PS4, so I can just get it there. It is a bit tempting to get the deluxe version that includes the remastered original, but I did play that game and 100% it three times originally, so I'm not sure how much I'd really play it again. The only other game I'm looking forward to so far is Horizon: Forbidden West, and they announced that's coming to PS4 as well.

No kidding, apparently all the retailers started selling them earlier than planned after fucking Wal-Mart jumped the gun a few hours ago.... Sony said it wouldn't happen until sometime tomorrow, but pre-orders are already sold out everywhere. Some are having luck spamming Best Buy's checkout button -- 'cause of how their system processes things and individual orders falling through seem to automatically make new stock available -- but that's about it.

Correct, that's PS5 vs. Xbox Series S. Of course they will sell some of the latter to people who only look at the price tag, but I dunno how anyone who researches what they buy would give up so much to save only 25%.

If you don't have a 4k tv, this probably makes perfect sense

Surely the saving of not having a disc drive would be gone after buying a couple of games at their fixed digital prices? Seems like a crazy option to go for, but I guess people are quite stupid.

The Playstation Store routinely has Steam style sales with steep discounts. I've got about 40 games, most of which are AAA titles, on my PS4 and have probably spent under $500 to get them. A disk drive gives you more options but it's not like forgoing one means you'll pay $70 for every PS5 games you ever purchase.

Undercutting your own big card by 40% and offering 30% more power is not good enough for you? Aaaaallllriiiight...
