Sony has not officially confirmed the PS5 price however, we currently don't know how much the PlayStation 5 will cost at launch. System architect Mark Cerny said the price would be "appealing to gamers", suggesting it shouldn't be too high. However, the Japanese giant has also admitted that it primarily targets hardcore gamers, so it's not necessarily targeting a mainstream audience at launch. In fact, boss Jim Ryan recently explained that the manufacturer is emphasizing the value of its next-gen format, suggesting the price could be higher than many had expected.
Sony will launch two PS5 consoles: PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition. You can see the differences between the two models in our guide: What's the difference between the PS5 Digital Edition and the PlayStation 5? Sony has yet to confirm PS5 Digital Edition price, so we don't know how it will compare to the standard PS5. However, recent reports have speculated that it could be $50 cheaper, based on the savings the manufacturer will make on components, as well as the additional revenue it will earn from generating software sales on the PlayStation Store.
Our educated guess is that the PS5 will be slightly more expensive than the PlayStation 4 at launch, which originally retailed for $399,99. Given the specs of the system — including its custom SSD hard drive — we predict you'll likely pay between $449,99 and $499,99 for the standard PS5 and between $399,99 and $449,99 for the PS5 digital edition. This is especially likely considering that PlayStation has stated that it expects the PS4 to remain relevant through 2022.
Due to factors such as VAT and the exchange rate, the PS5 will almost certainly cost more in the UK than in the US. Assuming our US price estimates are accurate, we estimate you'll be looking at around £449,99 for the standard PS5 and £399,99 for the PS5 Digital Edition.
You can expect the PS5 to have a higher price in Canada than in the US, due to currency differences. A PS4 Pro currently costs around $499,99 CAD in Canada, compared to $399,99 USD in the United States.
Depending on the exchange rate at launch, we expect the price of the PS5 to be around €449,99 to €499,99 for the standard PS5 and between €399,99 and €449,99 for the PS5 Digital Edition in countries like France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal and the Netherlands.
