In recent news related to PS5 hardware, Sony shared more information about the PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech.

Elsewhere, the publisher allowed a group of Japanese YouTubers to showcase what’s basically the first extended gameplay on PS5.

And, of course, recently Sony announced both prices and release dates.

The standard edition will cost $499.99, €499.99, £449.99, or 49,980 yen while the Digital Edition is priced at $399.99, €399.99, £359.99, or 39,980 yen.

The first release date will be on Nov. 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.

Everyone else will have to wait a little more: the console will launch in Europe and in the rest of the world on Nov. 19.
