Sony on Wednesday unveiled the PlayStation 5’s price and release date, and the company’s most loyal customers used it as an opportunity to mock the upcoming Xbox Series X on social media.
This new generation of console war seems to be as ridiculous as the last Sony and Microsoft.
The PlayStation 5 comes in two editions, one with a disc reader and digital only, which means games can be downloaded instead of purchased in physical form. The standard version will cost $ 499.99 at launch and the digital version $ 399.99. Both permits will be available in stores on November 12th. USA
These figures are very similar to what Microsoft is offering with the Xbox Series X, which will cost $ 499 and come out two days earlier, on November 10th. Microsoft also has a much less powerful S-Series that will cost $ 299.
PlayStation users who have been concerned about the Xbox would be forced to beat the price, making a festive circle. Xbox users, meanwhile, plan to buy their machines two days earlier. In the gaming world, there is a clear desire for everyone to be happy and pleasant to each other.
WE FINALLY know the prices and specifications of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S – and they are VERY close to each other.
