This chapter of our guide to the PS5 console discusses the price of the console and where you will be able to purchase Sony's latest product. What's the price of the console? Where can I buy a PS5? Answers below!
As we come closer to the launch of the PS5, the availability and price of the device raises true concern. Rumors say that by the end of March 2021, about 6 million PS5 consoles will reach the shops of all over the world. Unfortunately, this may not be enough. We would like to remind you that on the day of PS4's release in the United States alone, the console was purchased by more than 1 million players in the first 24 hours after it hit shelves. Apart from the allegedly limited availability, the price of the new Sony device also doesn't look that promising.

PS5 Price - How much will it cost?
For many people, the price of the PS5 console is the key factor that determines whether they will buy it or not. Sony has only commented the price of its ninth generation console in such a way that it will be adequate to the capabilities and features offered by the PS5. As a reminder, we had to pay $399.99 USD, 399.99€ or 349.99L for PS4 during the day of its release. The final price of a PS5 will certainly be affected by the current situation on the market as well as the availability of some of its components, such as the strongly promoted and praised SSD. Two PS5 console editions will hit the store shelves - with and without the Blu-Ray Ultra HD optical drive. Thus, we can assume that the price of the drive-less console may be slightly lower. According to some sources, the price of the PS5 console could be around $500 USD, 500€ or 450L.

. The 2K Games company has recently announced that NBA 2k21 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One would cost $59.99. However, the game editions for next-generation consoles like the PS5 will cost $10 more, that is, $69.99. 2K Games is the first publisher to comment on the price of games for the next generation of consoles. It is likely that other publishers and developers will follow this solution too. Therefore, we can assume that the standard price of PS5 games will be around $70. .
PS5 Pre-orders - Where can I buy PS5?
At the time we're writing this guide (that is, August 2020), the retailers and online stores had not placed the PS5 in pre-order yet. However, in some online stores the PS5 console is already listed as a product (but it's still "unavailable"). This situation will definitely change as we get closer to the official launch. However, nothing will prevent you from buying the PS5 in classic retail stores on the day of its launch.
