PlayStation 5 price and release window announced at Showcase!
Amidst the exciting footage from new titles slated to hit the forthcoming console later this year and next year, the price and release window for the physical and digital editions of the PlayStation 5 have been officially announced, with the comparing price tags and release dates available below!
The new console features a white, conch-shell-like design with a black segment inside and though the video and gallery images below show the console standing up, Sony has confirmed that players will be able to lay it horizontally on whichever surface they typically set up other consoles.
In addition to the two consoles, Sony has previously revealed detailed full looks at the PS5’s controller, the DualSense, which is based on the previous consoles’ DualShock controllers but features modifications influenced by discussions with game designers and players alike to allow for more efficient gameplay and a higher-rated batter. Similar to its console, the DualSense features a two-tone coloring of white and black facing with monochrome action buttons, with the light bar being moved from the top edge to either side of the touchpad and has renamed the “Share” button to “Create” to offer players more means to share and create content with others.
Sony previously revealed a number of new hardware accessories to go with both the console and the controllers, including a Pulse 3D wireless headset, an HD camera, a media remote and a DualSense charging station with spaces to charge two controllers at once. Though no release date or price was announced during today’s events, PlayStation 5 is currently set to hit shelves this holiday season!
