Sony’s PS5 Console To Have Two Versions… And Prices
Surprise, surprise… Thursday’s unveiling of the new PlayStation 5 console by Sony was a huge hit, but the biggest surprise of all is that the console will have TWO versions: The Digital and the Standard editions.
While dazzling us with games such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Resident Evil 8, the reveal gave us clues. After showing off that the PS5 will adopt the black-and-white colorway, with a sleek design nothing like the clunkiness shown in internet images, reality stood up to kick us in the face: while the price is still not in the clear, the reveal event gave us the feeling that it’s gonna be expensive. But, hey… it also gave us the Digital Edition.
The Digital Edition does away with the disc drive, and could have expandable storage, but we still don’t know if the processing power is similar. The Digital Edition is definitely bound to be cheaper, but cloud storage and internet connection would have to be the rule.
Regarding the standard version: in February, the new console was reportedly going to cost some $450 to produce, so most probably the standard edition of the PS5 will be around or higher than $500. In all probability, Sony will wait to see pricing of the Xbox Series X before letting the cat out of the bag, but it doesn’t look like it will be taking a considerable loss without a fight: the launch-day price will probably include not many extras, and one or two games, tops. We do know the standard edition PS5 will be coming out with an 825 GB solid-state drive, but besides that, nothing.
Other awesome reveals, besides the two-faced version of the console, were:
- Resident Evil Village
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Horizon: Forbidden West
- Demon’s Souls remake
