Of the accessories only the price of the DualSense joystick was confirmed, which in the United States will be priced at 70 dollars and in our country will be offered at 9,299 pesos. Taking the value of the official dollar to about 80 pesos (rounding up) for sale, the local price of PlayStation 5 would be about $1250 for the most expensive model ($500), and $950 for the purely digital model ($400). With the new 35% additional tax announced yesterday and started to be implemented today, those who purchase the console abroad must take into account the cost of the hardware, 30% of the country tax and 35% of the new tax. Considering these additional consoles of $400 and $500 would cost about $660 and $825, respectively, abroad. The console does not have a confirmed release date in our country.
