Lovers of the console who are outside the countries listed above would have to wait until November 19 before they can get hold of PS5. However, gamers across the world have been pre-ordering PS5 since September 17.
One mind-blowing feature of PS5 is that plus the launch day release games, the forthcoming version of the console will have backward compatibility for PS4 games. This means that you can be able to play your PS4 games on the new PS5 console.
Also, if you buy the standard version of PS5 instead of the digital version of the console, you can use PS4 discs in the drive and play them on the new console.
Besides that, gamers can safely reinstall the games they purchased from the Playstation store on PS4 whenever they decide to switch to PS5. However, users of the game can only do that if they sign up to their PS5 account using the email address they used to purchase those games on PS4.

How much is PlayStation 5?
As usual, the PlayStation series always comes in two editions – Standard and Digital editions, and their prices always differ.
Those gamers that intend to buy a standard PS5, the should prepare to pay 499.99 dollars. This edition contains a disc drive that allows gamers to play physical discs and even 4K UHD Blu-Ray discs. It also comes with disc copies of PS4 games.
On the other hand, the digital edition of PS5 will cost gamers $399.99. The bad side of this is that gamers can only play games they download from the PlayStation Store and the digital PS5 does not come with a disc drive.
PS5 was released and it sold out immediately, as a result, gamers who did not pre-order are now buying for a much higher price on auction sites.
