Gaming’s next generation is just about here. 

Sony’s PlayStation 5 finally has a release date and a price: Both the regular and digital editions of the PS5 will launch on Nov. 12 in the U.S. and will retail at $499 and $399, respectively. The digital edition of the console has the same internal components as the regular version but gets rid of the disc drive for an all-digital experience (and it’s $100 cheaper).

When the PlayStation 5 releases on Nov. 12, you’ll be able to dig into a bunch of highly anticipated launch titles like Spider-Man: Miles MoralesDemon’s Souls, and more.

During the press conference that revealed this news, Sony also announced some exciting plans for the PlayStation 5’s future, including the release of Final Fantasy XVIHogwarts Legacy, and the sequel to 2018’s God of War. Also announced was the PlayStation Plus Collection, an Xbox-Game-Pass-style service that will allow PlayStation Plus subscribers to download and play a library of PlayStation 4 classics at their leisure. You can check out our full breakdown of the event here.

And here’s the crazy part — preorders are live already, which means if you order now, you’ll be able to start playing on release day. 

We’ll cut to the chase so you can get your hands on one as soon as possible. See below for links to the preorder pages for both editions of the PlayStation 5:
