After much anticipation, Sony has officially announced the pricing of the upcoming PlayStation 5. Prices will start at USD 399 (PhP 20,000) for the PS5 Digital Edition while the PS5 with the Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive will sell at USD 499 (PhP 25,000).

On November 12, 2020, the Sony PlayStation 5 will arrive in select territories: U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea. Other markets in the Globe will receive Sony’s latest console on November 19, 2020.

Both Digital and Standard versions come with the same specifications such as a custom AMD processor and RDNA 2-based GPU, as well as a blazing-fast SSD with integrated I/O for faster loading times. The only difference is that the Digital model will not have a blu-ray disc drive.

Although Sony has announced the global pricing of the PlayStation 5, we have yet to receive its official selling price in the Philippines. We expect that Sony and major retailers to break the local pricing of the PlayStation 5 Digital and Standard edition as we come closer to its November 19 global launch date.
