The Sony Playstation 5 will officially be here November 12th, 2020 and cost $5,000.
Whoops. I mean $500.
A cheaper digital-only edition of the PS5 will cost $400 and perform just the same.
You can't exactly pre-order them yet, but if you sign up for some mailing list on Sony's website you may be able to place a pre-order sometime soon.
Why is Sony willing to drop the price of the PS5 Digital Edition so low?— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) September 16, 2020
- Higher margins for digital games and services
- The user will never buy a disc (lower margin)
Sony earns around ~50% more when you buy a third party game digitally vs physically. ~30% more on 1st party.
Both editions will have backwards compatibility for PS4 games you purchased from the PS Store, but only the standard edition will have a disc drive to play physical copies of PS4 games.
By comparison, the XBox Series X will launch on November 10th, and it will also cost $500.
Some people are so anxious for the PS5 they're willing to do anything just to get their grubby little hands on this fine piece of machinery.

So what's the best way to come up with the money for a PS5? (Provided you either don't have a job or simply don't have the budget for this thing?)

Fellas, if you get a girlfriend right now ya'll will be in the honeymoon stage when the PS5 comes out and she'll buy it for you!— Froste (@Froste) September 16, 2020
The answer is of course to familiarize yourself with Amazon arbitrage.
Amazon arbitrage is where you search for random products you can buy in bulk for cheap, like say, a bunch of dinosaur-shaped water bottles, then sell them on Amazon for at least a 50-100% markup.
If you get started on this today, you'll easily have an extra $500 in two months, plus some money to buy your kids fake controllers to trick them into thinking they're playing when they're actually leaving you alone.
