Regardless of which bundle you opt for, each console will come pre-loaded with Astro's Playroom, a pretty fun-looking launch game that has been designed to introduce players to many of the DualSense controller's shiny new features.
The standard and digital editions of the next-gen console will launch in the UK on 19 November., while the US gets it slightly earlier on 12 November.
The standard model will set you back £449, while the digital-only version of the console comes in at a slightly cheaper £359.
It's worth noting that the only real difference between the standard and digital models is the 4K UHD Blu-Ray drive, which you'll only find in the standard PS5.
Beyond that, both consoles boast the exact same specs: a custom AMD GPU, ultra-fast SSD, and an impressive 10.28 Teraflops of GPU power.
All told, it's not too bad a price at all for the next-gen PlayStation, especially seeing as some analysts were predicting it would cost upwards of £500.
