The PS5 Standard Edition boasts a £449.99 RRP here in the UK, slightly undercutting most analytical predictions that itched it around £500 throughout most of 2020. 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.
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, though there’s hope that more units will be readily available by the end of 2021.
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, nothing is certain in terms of how plentiful PlayStation 5 stock will be throughout the 2022 period. However, Sony expected to sell seven million units (Digital and Standard Edition combined) before March 31, 2021, forecasting that they expect PS5 to outsell PS4 in the same launch window. They easily beat this target, having now sold a whopping 13.4 million units after only 12 months on the market. Be sure to check Gaming Deals around then to find yourself a PS5 Standard Edition.

The standard model 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 media remote that Sony has made available for the console in time for launch, and you’re looking at a home entertainment behemoth.
