Sony’s PlayStation 5 will be released in November

Sony’s PlayStation 5, eagerly awaited by the video game community, will be released in November, just after Microsoft’s next-generation console, the XBox Series X. The sector has been made even more competitive by the Covid-19 pandemic.

During an online game showcase event designed for the PS5 on Wednesday, Sony announced that two versions of its new console will hit the market on November 12 in Australia, North America, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan and in Mexico, and a week later in the rest of the world.

The premium model will cost $ 500 while a “digital edition” for games stored in the cloud (remote computing) will sell for $ 400.

Dazzling growth

Last week, Microsoft unveiled its XBox Series X, which will hit the market on November 10 starting at $ 499. Pre-orders will start on September 22. Microsoft also announced for the same date a smaller version of its console, the XBox S, for $ 299.

The video game industry has grown dramatically thanks to containment, with games available in the cloud and broadcast live being a huge success.

The PlayStation 4, the model currently marketed by Sony, has sold twice as much as the XBox One, but Microsoft is hoping to catch up with Sony.
