Here’s everything you need to know about the PS5 price as well as where you should hopefully be able to find the console.

The PS5 price for the standard edition (the one with a disc drive) is $499.99 in the US. The PS5 price for the digital edition (the one without a disc drive) sets you back $399.99 in the US. Folks up in Canada have to pony up $629 CAD for the standard edition and $499 CAD for the digital edition.

In Europe, pricing is about the same at €499 for the standard edition and €399 for the digital edition. In the UK, the PS5 price is £449 and £359, respectively. Finally, in Japan, the price runs ¥49,980 for the standard edition and ¥39,980 for the digital edition.

In India, the PS5 with a disc drive comes in at Rs. 49,990 whereas the digital edition costs Rs. 39,990. Sony hasn’t announced a release or pre-order date in the country yet.

Where can I buy a PS5?

If you see a site proclaiming that they will have the PlayStation 5 in stock, be ready. It’s bound to sell out almost instantly, so you may spend precious time coming up empty-handed. The console has been popping up at major retailers here and there over the past few months, and patience is the name of the game. Do your best to stick with reputable retailers and avoid the resale market — most sites are bound to price-gouge pretty heavily on the PS5.
