PlayStation 5 Is Available To Pre-Order Now Ahead Of 19 November Release

Sony has finally confirmed the price and release date but you can get the pre-order now

The PlayStation 5 is available to pre-order now, which is good news for those of you that just can't wait to get your mitts on on the next-gen console. It will launch on 19 November in the UK.

And if you're worried about getting hold of one, you can sleep easier at night if you pre-order on the GAME website. The retailer is offering a number of bundles to customers.

The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition for £359.99 isn't currently available to pre-order but here are some of your options:

Another place allowing customers to pre-order is Smyths' website, where it's priced at £449.99.


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.
