The pricing is really aggressive from Sony and it really puts the Xbox Series X under pressure. The PS5 will launch on November 12th in countries like the US, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. Whereas, the rest of the world will be getting the new console on November 19th.

The PS 5 standard version and the Xbox Series X have the same price but the digital-only version of the PS 5 is priced 100$ higher than the more affordable Xbox Seris S.

However, Xbox Series S is less powerful than the Series X and also PS 5 digital-only version is only missing the optical drive.

Sony also announced a special new offering on PS5 for the PlayStation Plus members – the Playsation Plus Collection.

PS5 owners with PS Plus will be able to download and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5, and many more.

The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price.
