What’s in the box?
We now know pretty much everything there is we need to about Microsoft’s next generation launch. The Xbox Series S and X will both launch November 10th for $299 and $499, respectively. On the Sony side still there is mystery both about the launch as well as the price. But one thing we did find out was what the model numbers and what’s in the box.
Known leaker Daniel Ahmad, also known as ZhugeEX, leaked out the contents of what will come in a retail box for a PS5 via a Hong Kong retailer. You can see the model numbers for both the disc version as well as the digital edition. It comes with exactly what you expect: the system, a HDMI cable, a AC power adapter, a USB cable, an instruction manual and the pre-installed Astro’s Playroom. The only thing not expected here is that the base does come with the system. Hey, it’s not the most exciting leak, but gotta take what you get.
As it stands, we don’t know when the PS5 will launch, though most expect it will be in November. Recent rumors have pegged the system at $499 for the main system on par with the Xbox Series X, and $399 for the digital edition, but it remains rumor until Sony makes the announcement, hopefully, soon.
This is from a Hong Kong distributor. So probably region specific. Just FYI.
