Sony quietly announced the price of the PS5 DualSense controller after the PS5 release date and price fixing, and it also let us know how much other accessories will cost.
Each PlayStation 5 DualSense wireless gamepad costs $ 69.99 / € 69.99 (around £ 64). One is in the PS5 box, of course, but all the extras cost like some of the most expensive PS5 games. That’s a price hike – most current official Sony PS4 controllers cost $ 59.99.
The all-digital PS5 console itself costs $ 399.99 / £ 359.99 / AU $ 599.95. while Sony’s PS5 with disc drive costs $ 499.99 / £ 449.99 / AU $ 749.95. In the PS5 vs Xbox Series X match-up, Sony and Microsoft’s disc-drive-included consoles price together, but while lower-specified all-digital Xbox Series S costs $ 299 / £ 249 / AU $ 499.
The two PS5 consoles, the DualSense controller and all new accessories from Sony will go on sale in the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on Thursday, November 12 (two days after Microsoft’s launch) , while everyone in the UK and elsewhere in the world will have to wait a week: Thursday 19th November.
Prices of other PS5 accessories
Sony’s Pulse 3D wireless headset costs $ 99.99 / € 99.99 (around £ 91). According to Sony, these over-ear headphones have a PS5-matching color scheme, 3D audio support, and dual noise-canceling microphone.
The PS5 HD camera costs $ 59.99 / € 59.99 (about £ 46) and offers PlayStation gamers a way to broadcast themselves to Twitch and other game streaming platforms through dual 1080p lenses.
The official PS5 Media remote costs $ 29.99 / € 29.99 (around £ 27.32). PlayStation 5 will be more than a game console for many people, so the PS5 remote will be a much more natural way to navigate Netflix and menus from other streaming services.
Finally, the PS4 Dual Charging station costs $ 29.99 / € 29.99 (around £ 27.32). It’s a cleaner, easier way to charge two DualSense wireless controllers, instead of having USB-C cables hanging around.
