Last night Sony took the virtual stage and revealed a lot of gameplay for games coming to the PS5. The company also revealed the price and release date for the PS5 disc and digital edition. The Digital Edition of the console will cost $399 (Rs 30,000 approx directly converted) while the PS5 with a disc drive will cost $499 (Rs 37,000 approx directly converted). There is no official India price of the console, but it is expected to hit store shelves in India on November 19th if all goes well. You can read more about the launch date and price of the PS5 here.
If you are wondering what the box of the PS5 looks like then here is your first look. It looks like the PS5 with a disc drive will have a white box while the Digital Edition of the PS5 will come in a black box. You can check out the design of the box below.

As of now, only the front of the box is visible which highlights the console and the controller. We think like all PlayStation launch consoles of the past the back of the box will highlight features like ray tracing, haptic feedback of the dual sense, the SSD and more.
As for the contents of the box, information circulating the internet suggests that the box will contain the console (duh!), the DualSense controller, power cord, USB charging cable for the controller and the stand that will let you keep the console vertically or horizontally. Till now, a vertical stand for the PS4 was sold as an accessory. But the design of the PS5 makes the stand more of a necessity rather than an accessory and hence has been included in the box.
With the PS4, gamers also got a mono headset with a mic to chat with friends. This has been omitted from the PS5 because the DualSense controller comes with a built-in mic.
Sony and Microsoft have both shared the price and release date for the console. While we are still waiting for an India price for the PS5, you can check out the India price and launch date for the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X here.
