Sony has announced the prices of the new PlayStation 5 consoles. For the first time, Sony has split the PlayStation consoles in two: A digital version with no optical disc support, and a version which supports optical discs.
The new pricing of the PlayStation 5 digital edition is €399.99, whilst the other version supporting optical discs is priced at €499.99.
As a result of a difference in price of €100, it is hard to recommend going for the optical disc support if you actively purchase your games from the PlayStation Store.
Pre-orders of the new PlayStation 5 has started upon the pricing announcement. Thus, you can immediately proceed with pre-ordering the new PlayStation 5.
If you live in Malta, the best place to pre-order the PlayStation 5 is from Amazon DE by clicking the following link.
The advantage of pre-ordering from Amazon is taking advantage of excellent customer service and more stock availability.
Update: Due to a high number of pre-orders, it might be difficult to place one as a result of a limited volume of supply. I recommend you use the Amazon link above, due to the higher volumes that they would be able to order.
