Those gamers who want the best out of their favorite titles will have to faithfully try out the PlayStation 5 console when it arrives in stores. Equipped with advanced hardware compared to the good old PlayStation 4, the next-generation console grants smoother than ever gameplay and the purge of those in-game loading times that had been annoying us all so many times.
The Digital Edition of PlayStation 5 that has no Blu-ray drive is expected to cost around $400 to $450. But there’s also the 2TB version of the console, and thanks to the large online retailer Otto.de from Germany, we know its price.
The 2TB model of PS5 costs €974.79 ($1,150)
The retailer was the one revealing the price, and it’s not too exaggerated if you ask us. The specs for the PS5 console are the following:
- CPU: AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU architecture: Custom RDNA 2
- Memory interface: 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit
- Memory bandwidth: 448GB/s
- Internal storage: Custom 825GB SSD
- IO throughput: 5.5GB/s (raw), typical 8-9GB/s (compressed)
- Expandable storage: NVMe SSD slot
- External storage: USB HDD support (PS4 games only)
- Optical drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray drive

At launch, we will offer two options: a PlayStation®5 console with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive and a PlayStation®5 Digital Edition without a disc drive. The PS5 gameplay experience will be the same, so the choice is all yours. While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation.
If everything goes according to the plan (and it should), the PS5 console arrives in stores sometime around mid-November. This means a week after the release of the Xbox Series X console.
