PlayStation 5 series price in India revealed; availability still not known

Here’s Our First Look at the New PS5 UI

The PlayStation 5 is right around the corner now, and with it, the next generation of consoles is coming. The Sony PlayStation 5 Digital Edition has been announced at Rs 39,990. In comparison, the Xbox Series X is priced at par with the standard version at ₹49,990.

Unlike Sony, Microsoft also has a more-affordable next-gen option in the form Xbox Series S - that costs Rs 34,990 - though it is a relatively more toned-down console - while Sony's PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition are virtually the same consoles.

The latest Sony console comes in two variants, one is a standard edition that comes with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive whereas the other is digital edition, which does not come with an optical disc drive. The same thumb rule also applies to the Xbox Series X (that is also $499 in the US) though Microsoft could have priced the Xbox Series S (that is just $299 in the United States or roughly Rs 22,000) better.

Users have been expressing concern about a notification that party voice chats on PlayStation 5 may be recorded.

The standalone DualSense wireless controller will sell for Rs 5,990. With Sony's PlayStation Remote Play app, you can play all of your favorite games on your console, no matter where you are.
