The key will be the cost especially since the 4k drive is optional

Maybe that can be a separate unit for those keen on ripping just like the old PS3

"SINGAPORE - The next-generation gaming console war sporting more life-like graphics has officially arrived, with Sony's PlayStation 5 (PS5) set to go head to head with Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Series S this November.


Sony announced the price and release date for its PS5 in a live stream on Thursday (Sept 17) morning Singapore time, ending months of speculation from gamers and the media alike.


The standard PS5 will cost US$499 (S$678), while the digital edition, which comes without a Blu-ray disc drive, will cost $399.


Both devices will launch first on Nov 12 in seven countries including the United States, Japan and South Korea, and on Nov 19 for the rest of the world, including Singapore.


Sony has not announced local pricing information for Singapore yet. It said pre-orders are starting on Thursday at select retailers, but did not specify which ones.


"This year has been unlike any other, and there have been many challenges the world has faced," said Sony Interactive Entertainment chief Jim Ryan in a blog post published after the live stream ended.


"Everyone at PlayStation, along with all of our partners in development, publishing, technology, and retail, have devoted a lot of effort to launch PlayStation 5 in time for the holiday season."


The Japanese electronics giant had been widely expected to reveal the PS5 price and launch dates in response to its rival Microsoft, which did the same for its Xbox Series X and Series S last week.


The Xbox Series X has an identical price to the PS5 at $499, while the less powerful Series S costs $299. Both are launching on Nov 10."
