In comparison, the Xbox Series X is priced at par with the standard version at ₹49,990. Sony also assured that voice recordings will not be monitored.
The latest Sony console comes in two variants, one is a standard edition that comes with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive whereas the other is digital edition, which does not come with an optical disc drive.
Earlier this week, Sony also offered a look at the PlayStation 5's revamped user interface and user experience in an nearly 12-minute long video.

The same thumb rule also applies to the Xbox Series X (that is also $499 in the US) though Microsoft could have priced the Xbox Series S (that is just $299 in the U.S. or roughly Rs 22,000) better.
