The Playstation PS4 was previously much cheaper than the Xbox One. But this time around both the PS5 will cost $499, the same price as the flagship Xbox Series X.
The PS5 is set to be released on November 12 in America, Japan and Australia and November 19 in the rest of the world.

Historically, Sony has the advantage in the console wars. The Playstation 4 range outsold the Xbox range by two to one.
But the big price rise for the Playstation 5 may narrow that race and make the Xbox more competitive.
The entry level XBox S will cost $299 while the entry level Playstation 5 Digital will cost $399.
Alongside that, some of the PS5’s new games will come in at nearly AED400 including the new Spider-Man and Demon’s Soul games.
Alternatively, you can sign up to the XBox and its Xbox Game Pass subscription and really cut your costs.
Either way, the DubaiLAD team can’t wait to try out both consoles.
