PS5 Disc Edition To Get A Major Discount In Certain Regions
The Disc Edition of the PS5 console is all set to receive a major discount across a number of regions, based on the latest information.
A member of gaming enthusiast forum, Reset Era, shared an ad for a discount of 100 Euros on the Disc Edition of the PS5 that will be offered from July 1, 2023 to July 15, 2023 in Spain. The offer is not limited to the store seen in the promotion, however, and it will likely be offered in certain regions.
Additionally, for a limited time period, Sony is offering a free PS5 on the purchase of a Bravia OLED TV in New Zealand. This will undoubtedly be a good opportunity for those looking to upgrade their TV as well as purchase a current-gen console. It would appear that Sony is looking to clear the existing PS5 stock ahead of the arrival of a new SKU or hardware revision, though nothing concrete has been revealed in this regard.
The PlayStation 5 (PS5) is a home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was announced in April 2019 and launched on November 12, 2020, initially in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, North America, and South Korea, followed by a global release one week later. The PS5 belongs to the ninth generation of video game consoles, alongside Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S consoles, which were also released in the same month.
The Disc Edition PS5 model features an optical disc drive that supports Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, while the Digital Edition is a more affordable option designed for downloading games exclusively, lacking the disc drive. Both variants were released simultaneously.
Key hardware features of the PlayStation 5 include a custom solid-state drive that enables high-speed data streaming, leading to significant improvements in storage performance. It also incorporates an AMD GPU capable of displaying 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, along with hardware-accelerated ray tracing for realistic lighting and reflections. The console is equipped with the Tempest Engine, facilitating hardware-accelerated 3D audio effects. Additional features include the DualSense controller, which offers haptic feedback, backward compatibility with the majority of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games, and compatibility with the PlayStation VR2 headset.
