Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of the PS5 Standard Edition?

The PS5 Standard Edition boasts a £479.99 RRP here in the UK, slightly undercutting most analytical predictions that it would be well over the £500 mark. This results in a £90 price difference between the Standard and Digital PS5 SKUs, but the latter could save you money in the long run thanks to the included disc drive, which frees you up to shop for your games freely at a range of British retailers.

When did the PS5 Standard Edition first release?

Both PlayStation 5 variants: Digital and Standard hit UK store shelves on November 19th, 2020. This was actually a week after other territories like USA, Japan and New Zealand received it, and roughly 9 days after the console's competitor, Xbox Series X | S, officially launched. Pre-orders for the PS5 Standard Edition dried up extremely quickly, but we're now seeing stock being more and more readily available.

Are there any performance differences between the PS5 console and the PS5 Digital Edition console?

Nope, it's just that disc drive that is missing from the digital version.

What are the differences between the PS5 Disc and PS5 Slim Disc consoles?

Well the RRP is the same and the PS5 Slim is effectively phasing out the older disc PS5 model but you may find the older model at some heavily discounted prices now and then but stocks are pretty hard to come by. You're normally best off just going for the PS5 Slim disc console over the other counterpart. Here are the major differences between the two disc consoles.

  • PS5 Slim is approximately 30% smaller in size as well as 1.3 kg lighter than the older model.
  • The PS5 Slim has a 1 TB SSD whilst the old model has an 825 GB SSD.

Performance is the same across the consoles.

What's in the box?

Good question, see below:

  • The console
  • 1 x DualSense wireless controller (usually white but may differ on the console branding)
  • USB C to Type A charging cable for the wireless controller
  • Base that allows you to stand the console vertically or horizontally
  • HDMI cable (HDMI v2.1 compatible)
  • AC power cord
  • Quick Start and Safety guide.
Can I store or play PS5 games from a USB drive?

Yep!  You will need to ensure you've installed the latest software update for this though.  You can plug in a USB drive and utilise this as additional external storage on top of the 825GB base memory of the console.  

You can also store and play PS4 games from a compatible USB drive connected to PS5. 

Does the PS5 support 4K at 120Hz?

Indeed it does! The PS5 supports HDMI 2.1 specification, 4K 120Hz.  Boom!

PS5 Disc Edition Deals & Bundles

You can use this page to compare prices, stock and deals for the PS5 disc model and PS5 Slim Disc model. Head over to our main PS5 page if you’re wanting to compare all available PS5 deals.

The disc edition differs from the digital edition in that it retains the disc drive traditionally found on gaming consoles. The Digital Edition will rely purely on digital downloads and streaming, whereas with the standard edition, you’ll be able to play physical game discs as well as other physical media, such as 4K Blu ray DVDs. Combine this with the Sony PS5 media remote, and you’re looking at a home entertainment behemoth.

Save on games with the option to buy physical with the PS5 Disc Edition

Many would assume that the cheapest way to buy games would be purchasing digitally however, this is not the case regarding PS5 games. There are no third-party retailers for digital PlayStation games meaning that Sony entirely controls the pricing on their PlayStation store. This means no price competitiveness and you're always going to pay full RRP for digital games on PS5 around launch and would have to wait til further down the line for a sale if you are looking to pay less. Therefore one major advantage of purchasing a PS5 disc edition is opening up the option to buy physical games. Physical games retailers compete for your custom meaning you'll often find prices below RRP even when pre-ordering or buying at launch.

Whilst the PS5 Disc Edition is more expensive than its digital counterpart you can make up that extra cost by saving on your physical games purchases as opposed to going fully digital. It also means that you can purchase pre-owned games, saving even more money.

Customise your console set-up with console covers and different DualSense Controllers

Sadly it does seem that limited edition consoles may be left in the last generation for Sony with the PS4 as the PS5 has only seen a single limited edition console since its release in November 2020 with the Spider-Man 2 PS5. However, this doesn't mean you can't customise your set-up somewhat. The PS5's side panels can be taken off and replaced. So far Sony has released 5 different colour console covers with matching PS5 DualSense controllers allowing you to switch things up to suit your style. This is somewhat more consumer-friendly as it's significantly cheaper to buy a console cover than a whole new console. We're hoping that Sony will start to bring out more console covers maybe with game-specific designs but we're yet to see that. We've put the currently available PS5 Console Covers below with where you can purchase them. Keep in mind that these 5 console covers are only compatible with the old PS5 model and that there are 3 different console covers for the PS5 Slim.

Whilst we do miss the excitement of a limited edition console it's alleviated somewhat by Sony releasing limited edition PS5 DualSense controllers as they have for the releases of God of War Ragnarok and Hogwarts Legacy both bringing gorgeous controllers that both feel great as any DualSense controller does and looking exceptional. Check out all the PS5 DualSense Wireless controller colours released so far.

Which PS5 disc model is right for you?

There are two options when it comes to PS5 consoles with a disc tray, the first is the older larger model and then there is the newer Slim PS5 model. As mentioned in the FAQ above the main differences are that the Slim model is around 30% smaller and comes with a larger storage capacity of 1TB. They both have the same RRP and if they're priced the same there is no reason to not go for the newer PS5 Slim Disc model. However, it is a bit more complicated than that due to the fact we see some really deep sales on the older PS5 model. So if there is no sale on then go for the PS5 Slim Disc model, if you want to spend a bit less and the older model is heavily discounted that may be the way to go due to the fact there's no difference in performance. Oh and if you want your console to take up as little space as possible then always go with the Slim model.
