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.
