As you can tell, there’s no difference between the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition except that the latter doesn’t have a disc drive. In terms of raw performance, the PS5 has the same CPU as the Xbox Series family but they are clocked differently, the same GPU but with fewer compute units (CU) but a higher clock speed, and the same amount of RAM. All that’s to say the new Xbox and PlayStation are very similar but it’s still not a direct comparison.

Additionally, Sony also gave us prices for PS5 controllers and other accessories. An extra DualSense Wireless Controller will run you $69.99 (about Rs. 5,200), ¥6,980 (about Rs. 4,900), and €69.99 (about Rs. 6,100). The Pulse 3D wireless headset will cost $99.99 (about Rs. 7,400), ¥9,980 (about Rs. 7,000), and €99.99 (about Rs. 8,700).

The PlayStation HD Camera comes in at $59.99 (about Rs. 4,500), ¥5,980 (about Rs. 4,200), and €59.99 (about Rs. 5,300). You will need to fork over $29.99 (about Rs. 2,200), ¥2,980 (about Rs. 2,100), and €29.99 (about Rs. 2,600) for the Media Remote. That leaves the DualSense Charging Station, also priced at $29.99 (about Rs. 2,200), ¥2,980 (about Rs. 2,100), and €29.99 (about Rs. 2,600).

The PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition will launch November 12 in select markets, and November 19 and across the world.
