PlayStation 5 now available

Sony launches its new console generation

Posted on

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the launch of its next-generation console, PlayStation 5 (PS5), in seven key markets: the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. The PS5 release continues on November 19, with launches throughout the rest of the world, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.

SIE is welcoming this new generation of gaming by lighting up iconic buildings and popular sites in 25 territories around the world, projecting images of the PlayStation shapes, the PS5 console, the DualSense wireless controller, and other PlayStation brand imagery. Cities such as Tokyo, New York, Auckland, Toronto, Seoul and Mexico City are already live, with more cities to come next week.

The PS5 Digital Edition will be available for $399.99 USD / $499 CAD, and PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive will be available for $499.99 USD / $629 CAD. With the exception of the Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, both PS5 models offer the same specifications.

The PlayStation 5 game library is led by launch day titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Astro’s Playroom. New titles from independent developers, such as Bugsnax, Godfall, and The Pathless are also available today.

At launch this November, PlayStation Plus members can enjoy a curated lineup of 20 PlayStation 4 games with the PlayStation Plus Collection, available to download and play on PlayStation 5.

The PS5 promises fast load times thanks to PS5’s solid state drive (SSD), as well as 4K graphics and gameplay up to 120 frames per second. With the enhanced haptic feedback and adaptive triggers of the DualSense wireless controller and the immersive soundscapes by Tempest 3D AudioTech, PlayStation 5 promises to heighten your senses.

A detailed Launch FAQ for the PS5 is available at the PS Blog.
