Sony has finally revealed that the PS5 is being released on November 19 in the U.K. and Europe, lagging behind the U.S. release date of November 12. 

Thanks to the PS5 September livestream, we know that Sony’s new console costs £449.99 in Britain, with the Digital Edition going for £359.99. Sony said pre-orders would go live on September 17, but a slew of retailers have jumped the gun.

In the U.K. some online and physical retailers have opened up pre-orders, while other have stuck with pages that allow customers to register their interest in the PS5. However, those who pressed go on their pre-order pages have seemingly sold out of both editions of the PS5, so you might struggle to find one. But check back here as well keep this page updated as more pre-orders go live or PS5 stock is replenished.
