After seven highly successful years, the sun is finally about to set on the PlayStation 4. On 12 November 2020, Sony will launch its next-generation video game console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it's poised to profoundly change the gaming landscape. Crucially, it's also backwards compatible with thousands of PlayStation 4 games, which means your old games will work on the new system.

Pre-orders have now started to drop, with more online stores expected to join the fray in the next 24 hours. Here are the sites where you can pre-order the console right now.


Update: Pre-order stock is currently sold out, but you can register at the links below to be first in line when the second batch is released.

Here's where you can pre-order the PlayStation 5 online


How much does the PlayStation 5 cost?

Sony will be releasing two consoles at launch: the standard edition and an all-digital version that lacks an optical disc drive (otherwise, the specifications are identical.)

  • The PlayStaton 5 Standard Edition will cost $749.95
  • PlayStaton 5 Digital Edition will cost $599.95

PS5 games are tipped to be more expensive; expect to pay around $10 more than full-priced current-gen titles. You can find a full list of every confirmed PS5 game here.


Which version should you buy?

Sony is launching two different versions of the PlayStation 5: the standard model and an all-digital option that lacks an optical disc drive. The latter version will retail for less but you won't be able to play physical games or Blu-ray/DVD movies. Instead, all media needs to be streamed or downloaded through an Internet connection. (Sony hasn't revealed how this will affect backwards compatibility with PS4 games. Hopefully, some form of proof-of-purchase will be utilised so that you can download and play your old games.)

With the exception of the disc slot, the two versions are identical beneath the hood. If you rarely use physical media, then the all-digital version might be worth considering to save some money. However, if you like watching Blu-ray movies and don't want to clutter your home entertainment unit with extra hardware, go for the standard edition.
