Sony has released the first photos of the PlayStation 5 hardware retail box. Last Wednesday, Sony finally revealed that the PlayStation 5 will be released beginning November 12 in select areas and November 19 for the rest of the world.
Sony also announced the prices for both of their next-gen consoles with the Digital Edition costing $400 and $500 for the standard edition. The PlayStation 5 will be first distributed in South Korea, Australia, Mexico, Canada, Japan, and the United States. The rest of the world will receive copies of the console a week later which includes Asia, South Africa, South America, Middle East, and Europe.
Sony also confirmed that several first-party PlayStation 5 games will now cost $10 higher at $70 per game which follows an industry-wide trend of having more expensive games on the next-gen consoles.
Luckily, the platform holder announced that several games previously revealed as PlayStation 5 exclusives will also be launched on the PlayStation 4 such as Spider-Man Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West.
In Sony’s PlayStation 5 Showcase last Wednesday, the company revealed a couple of new games coming to the next-gen console such as Final Fantasy 16, Hogwarts Legacy, and a new God of War installment.
