While a release date and price for the PlayStation 5 remains unknown, despite Microsoft revealing the same information for the Xbox Series S and Series X just this week, the box contents for Sony’s next-gen console has apparently been revealed.
According to Niko Partners’ senior analyst Daniel Ahmad, the boxes for both the Digital and Standard editions of the PlayStation 5 feature the same things. Alongside the console and wireless DualSense controller, you get the attachable base, an AC power cord, HDMI cable, and more. Both systems come with a pre-installed copy of SIE Japan Studio Asobi Team’s 3D platformer Astro’s Playroom.
Ahmad points out that this list of items featured in the boxes of the PlayStation 5 comes from a Hong Kong distributor, likely meaning that it’s region-specific. Still, it’s likely that any PlayStation 5 box in any region will, at least, have the controller, HDMI cable, AC power cord, and other necessary components.
