Mere months out from release, Sony has finally confirmed pricing and availability for the PS5.

The Digital Edition of the PlayStation 5 will launch at $599.95 in Australia while the flagship PlayStation 5 model will launch at $749.95.

This puts it squarely in line with the Xbox Series X, with the digital edition $100 more expensive than the Xbox Series S.

You can already pre-order the PlayStation 5 at EB Games, JB Hi-Fi, the official Sony store, Harvey Norman, Target, Big W, The Good Guys and The Gamesmen. Stock is in pretty short supply, so chances are you might have to wait or go on a waiting list until more supply arrives in Australia.

If you want to pre-order from Amazon you can do so here. Prime members save $30, it’s free delivery and you won’t be charged until it ships.

Here’s all the games available with the PS5 at launch:

 

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Demon’s Souls

Godfall

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Maneater

NBA 2K21

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

We’ve also got a full review of the PS5 here:

This review has spent 3,000 words talking about the PlayStation 5, which is the most I’ve written about anything. It’s as good a video game console as there has ever been. The combination of ultra high-definition video, increased framerates, high-end graphics techniques like ray tracing, and the lightning-fast SSD make it feel like a real-deal, next-gen successor to the PlayStation 4. And if you’re not ready to give up on the previous console, the PlayStation 5 reliably runs a vast majority of the PlayStation 4 library, with many of those games receiving upgrades to fidelity, framerate, and loading times.

And a review of the first major next-gen title, Spider-Man: Miles Morales:

Mostly, Miles Morales needed to answer one main question. Was his adventure just as worthwhile as Parker’s return to video games two years ago? Fundamentally, yes. It’s not as groundbreaking in a technical sense, but it is a thrilling, enjoyable romp worthy of the Miles Morales name.
