The global economic environment is a challenge that many of you around the world are no doubt experiencing. We're seeing high global inflation rates, as well as adverse currency trends, impacting consumers and creating pressure on many industries. Based on these challenging economic conditions, SIE has made the difficult decision to increase the recommended retail price (RRP) of PlayStation 5 in select markets across Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America (LATAM), as well as Canada. There will be no price increase in the United States.

The new RRPs below are effective immediately unless otherwise noted.*

  • Europe
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – €549.99
    • PS5 Digital Edition – €449.99
  • UK
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – £479.99
    • PS5 Digital Edition – £389.99
  • Japan (effective Sept. 15, 2022)
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – ¥54,980 yen
    • PS5 Digital Edition – ¥44,980 yen
  • China
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – ¥4,299 yuan
    • PS5 Digital Edition – ¥3,499 yuan
  • Australia
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – AUD $799.95
    • PS5 Digital Edition – AUD $649.95
  • Mexico
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – MXN $14,999
    • PS5 Digital Edition – MXN $12,499
  • Canada
    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – CAD $649.99
    • PS5 Digital Edition – CAD $519.99
While this price increase is a necessity given the current global economic environment and its impact on SIE's business, our top priority continues to be improving the PS5 supply situation so that as many players as possible can experience everything that PS5 offers and what's still to come.

Thank you for your continued support.

His own fault for propping their garbage game and business practices. QUIT BUYING IT AND THEY WILL BE FORCED TO MAKE IT BETTER. As it is, they just fart out a roster update and people for out the dough. Self control, people.

Nah, they won’t, neither side will. They need competition….but also they need at least two teams and a support team or two, cos they only got like 8 months to make said game.


It’s not like they sell you last years game with dlc updates the following year :p

I've been eyeballing this for a while, it really looks awesome.
I've also been looking at the wirelessly modded controllers, but they are expensive to the point even I walk away from it lol

The only thing making me hesitate is the fact that I use wireless adapters (wingman) on my DC and play with Xbox controllers (the wingman have memory in them) and unfortunately the vmus become rather unnecessary at that point....

that said, I'll prob buy this even considering the above and the fact that I already have 11 vmus lol

lol...another nobody. Still waiting for the Sept 8 PS Showcase that was announced by an "insider".
Completely useless tweet. Social media is full of people posting nonsence, clickbait, outrage & nothing burger to stay relevance.
