After seven highly successful years, the sun is finally about to set on the PlayStation 4. On 19 November 2020, Sony launched its next-generation video game console into the UK, the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it’s poised to profoundly change the gaming landscape. Crucially, it’s also backwards compatible with thousands of PlayStation 4 games, which means your old games will work on the new system.

Playstation 5 full guide

How much does the PlayStation 5 cost?

Sony will be releasing two consoles at launch: the standard edition and an all-digital version that lacks an optical disc drive (otherwise, the specifications are identical).
  • The PlayStation 5 Standard Edition will cost £450
  • The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will cost £360

PS5 games are tipped to be more expensive; expect to pay around £5 more than full-priced current-gen titles.

Playstation 5 games

Should I buy the standard or digital version of the PS5?

Sony is launching two different versions of the PlayStation 5: the standard model and an all-digital option that lacks an optical disc drive. The latter version will retail for less, but you won’t be able to play physical games or Blu-ray/DVD movies. Instead, all media needs to be streamed or downloaded through an Internet connection. (Sony hasn’t revealed how this will affect backwards compatibility with PS4 games. Hopefully, some form of proof-of-purchase will be utilised so that you can download and play your old games.)

With the exception of the disc slot, the two versions are identical beneath the hood. If you rarely use physical media, then the all-digital version might be worth considering to save some money. However, if you like watching Blu-ray movies and don’t want to clutter your home entertainment unit with extra hardware, go for the standard edition.

When does the PS5 come out in the UK?

The new Playstation 5 will launch in the UK on November 19, one week later than the US launch date of November 12.

Where can I buy a Playstation 5?

Most of the big tech retailers such as Very, Currys and Argos offered a pre-sale of the Playstation 5. Pre-sales are now sold-out but we’re expecting a new influx of stock on the launch date of November 19 so be sure to checkout the retailers listed above then!

Will PlayStation 5 play PS4 games?

Yes! The new PS5 will be backwards compatible with thousands of PlayStation 4 games.
