O Brazil will be one of the countries to receive the PlayStation 5 on November 19: the Sony has confirmed the release date, but still does not say how much the console will cost here. It arrives in the USA a week earlier, on November 12, for up to $ 500. The price of the Xbox Series X and Series S in our country is also a mystery.
There are two models of the PS5: the standard version, which costs $ 499.99, and the Digital Edition without a Blu-ray drive, which will cost $ 399.99. Apart from physical media, both have the same specifications: AMD processor, Radeon graphics chip, 10.28 maximum power teraflops and 825 GB SSD.
Sony continues to bet heavily on exclusive games, including Demon’s Souls, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Gran Turismo 7. Some titles, such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, will also be on PS4.
It also today announced the PlayStation Plus Collection for PS5, a collection of games that were offered on PS Plus, but at no additional cost to users. She will have Bloodborne, God of War, Fallout 4, The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4, among others.
What will be the price of PS5 in Brazil?
It is difficult to estimate how much the PS5 will cost in Brazil. Prices converted into reais are R $ 2.1 thousand (standard version) and R $ 2.6 thousand (Digital Edition), but do not expect such low values.
As our executive editor Paulo Higa remembers, the PS4 was launched at US $ 399 and arrived in the country for a salty R $ 3,999; at the time, the dollar was around R $ 2.20. Today, the American currency is at R $ 5.24.
PS4: US $ 399 abroad, dollar to R $ 2.20, was launched for R $ 3,999 in Brazil
PS5: US $ 499 out there, dollar at R $ 5.30…
If they increase proportionally, you could bet on R $ 11,999.

PS4 prices fell when Sony started producing it locally. However, it stopped doing this in 2017: the console has since been imported again and sold through a distributor. This week, the company announced that it will close its TV and camera factory in Manaus next year.
Microsoft has also not revealed the prices of the Xbox Series X and Series S in Brazil, and has not yet confirmed when the video games will arrive in Brazil. They will be available in the U.S. and more countries on November 10 for $ 499 and $ 299, respectively.
