The price of Sony’s next-gen PS5 console has once again been spotted, this time on Amazon France for a more reasonable 499 Euros. This is the Standard Edition we’re talking about here that comes with an optical drive. This is a notch lower than the price listed earlier by Asia-Play which was a rather troubling $699 for the Standard Version and $599 for the Digital Version.
Keep in mind that the prices in Europe are slightly lower than in the US due to the currency advantage of the Euro (~100). Therefore, if the price of the PS5 (SE) in Europe turns out to be 499 Euros, the US price will likely be $599 for the same, with the Digital Edition costing $100 less at $499. This is still more reasonable than the earlier price leaked by Play-Asia but at the same it isn’t exactly affordable either. We’ll have a look at this once the next-gen GPUs from NVIDIA and AMD launch in October and the official prices are unveiled as well.
