The release date –
There’s hardly any time left as PS5 is set for a November release date. It launches in select markets on November 12th. With a world-wide release for November 19th, this puts the PS5 at a later release date than Microsoft’s 10 November launch date.

Sony on their blog added – “Both PS5 models use the same custom processor with integrated CPU and GPU for high-fidelity visuals, including 4K graphics and ray-tracing support, as well as the same ultra-high-speed SSD with integrated I/O for lightning-fast loading. PS5’s 3D audio and the DualSense Wireless Controller will also provide the same heightened sense of immersion on all PS5s.”
