Sony has announced the official prices for the PS5 accessories and the launch games that will accompany the next-gen console on November 12/17. The retail boxes for the PlayStation 5 and Digital Edition have also appeared online, with the design remaining both understated and relatively minimalistic.

While there were quite a few surprises in the thrilling PlayStation 5 Showcase, with the reveal of a new God of War title being a particular standout, Sony also missed quite a few things out (user interface, pre-order details – which came later as an additional “surprise”). Pricing for PS5 games and accessories were also skipped during the show; however, the company has now published an official price list. PS5 launch day games from Sony Interactive Entertainment will have a range of prices, stretching from free and preinstalled all the way up to a not unsubstantial sum of US$69.99.

Game Developers Prices
Astro’s Playroom Japan Studio Preinstalled on PS5
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Insomniac Games US$49.99/CAD$64.99/¥5,900/€59.99
Sackboy A Big Adventure Sumo Digital/XDEV US$59.99/CAD$79.99/¥6,900/€69.99
Demon’s Souls Bluepoint Games/Japan Studio US$69.99/CAD$89.99/¥7,900/€79.99
Destruction All Stars Lucid Games/XDEV US$69.99/CAD$89.99/¥7,900/€79.99
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Ultimate Edition
Insomniac Games US$69.99/CAD$89.99/¥7,900/€79.99

Prices are RRP and PS5 games from Sony's own Worldwide Studios will be priced from US$49.99 to U$S69.99.

As for the PS5 accessories and their prices, there is another table below for these. While some of these have been previously predicted and even closely estimated, it appears at least the Pulse 3D wireless headset is coming in much cheaper than what had been expected. Some guesses had placed that particular PS5 accessory with a price tag of US$159, so the actual US$99.99 figure seems like a bargain in comparison. 

Accessory Price
Media Remote US$29.99/CAD$39.99/¥2,980/€29.99
DualSense Charging Station US$29.99/CAD$39.99/¥2,980/€29.99
HD Camera US$59.99/CAD$79.99/¥5,980/€59.99
DualSense Wireless Controller US$69.99/CAD$89.99/¥6,980/€69.99
PULSE 3D wireless headset US$99.99/CAD$129.99/¥9,980/€99.99

Prices are RRP.

Lastly, the retail boxes for the PlayStation 5 have started appearing online, and Sony has kept the design for the packaging relatively clean and simple. The standard PlayStation 5 comes in a white box, whereas the Digital Edition console comes in a somewhat better-looking black box. The packaging also details the console’s 4K and 8K capabilities and both PS5 boxes are topped off with the signature blue-colored line.
