A video game console released by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It's the successor to the PlayStation 4 and was officially released on November 12, 2020, in North America, Japan, Australia, and other regions, with a worldwide release following on November 19, 2020.

Please note that as of my last update in September 2021, the PS5 was still in high demand, and availability could be limited due to global supply chain issues and high demand. It's advisable to check with authorized retailers or Sony's official website for the most up-to-date information on pricing, availability, and any new developments regarding the PS5.
