During yesterday's Sony network conference, we got to know not only new games aimed at PlayStation 5, but also the missing pieces of the puzzle, i.e. prices and the release date of the new console. According to earlier reports, the Japanese manufacturer has prepared two versions of its console, i.e. the classic with a drive and the Digital Edition without a drive, which were priced at $ 499 and $ 399, respectively. And although the price of the traditional model looks the same as in the case of the Xbox Series X, Polish prices differ slightly and Sony has used a less attractive conversion rate, which translates into PLN 2299 and PLN 1849, respectively. It should be noted, however, that unlike the Xboxes, the drive or its absence is the only difference between consoles.
What's more, the console is available for pre-sale from today, in Poland it is currently offered by Media Expert stores (with 30 days of HBO Go as a gift) and Media Markt. And when will it get into our hands? Theoretically, the premiere was planned for November 12 (i.e. slightly later than the Xboxes), but then it will only take place in a few places around the world, including Japan and the USA, and other players, including Poles, have to wait a week longer, until November 19 . By the way, we got to know the Polish prices of accessories for the new console, which, as always, will hit our wallet a bit, although in most cases - except for the second pad - they seem completely optional. And so, the second Dual Sense controller costs PLN 319, the webcam PLN 269, the Pulse 3D Wireless headphones PLN 449, the Media Remote control PLN 139, and the charging station for two controllers PLN 139.
As we mentioned, yesterday's presentation also brought us a presentation of the titles in which the programs on PlayStation 5 and it cannot be concealed that in this respect Sony has blown Microsoft over the shoulder. Because while both events with games for the Xbox Series X and S were simply terrible, here we got a short presentation of the potential hits - Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, i.e. the development of the Insomniac hit from PlayStation 4, Hogwarts Legacy in the world of Harry Potter , a remake of the cult Demon's Souls, a new version of Resident Evil, another full-fledged Final Fantasy, an interestingly promising Deathloop or, above all, a continuation of God of War - yes, Sony has confirmed that Santa Monica is working on a new part called Ragnarok, which is to hit the market already next year. We would like to remind you that when it comes to specifications, under the hood of PlayStation 5 we will find the Ryzen Zen 2 chip with 8 cores and clocking at 3.5 GHz, whose graphics processor is to provide 10.28 TFLOPS of computing power, 16 GB of fast GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of up to 448 GB / s and SSD drive with a capacity of 825 GB. On paper, the Xbox Series X looks better again, but taking into account the opinions of developers or prepared games so far, it may not matter much.
