In its recent blog post, Sony announced the PlayStation 5 game showcase event for Wednesday, September 16. The company promises to show several more games for the upcoming next-gen console, which were developed both by the company’s internal teams and Sony’s partners.
At the same time, Sony promises to reveal “some more details” about the PS5, although the company does not specify what exactly. Considering that Sony’s main competitor on the market, Microsoft, has already announced prices and launch dates for the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, it would be quite logical to expect Sony to do the same.
Microsoft’s initial plan was to announce the launch date and pricing of its Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S later, but leaks of the Series S console made the company change this plan and it confirmed the price and design of the novelties. Microsoft will open up Xbox preorders on September 22. Sony has reportedly cut the price of the upcoming PlayStation 5 following Microsoft’s announcements.
The PS5 event will be live-streamed on YouTube and Twitch at 4 PM EDT / 1 PM PDT on September 16, and it will last for about 40 minutes.
Back in June, Sony unveiled over two dozen games for the PlayStation 5 console, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Resident Evil 8, Horizon: Forbidden West, and Gran Turismo 7.
Sony has also opened up pre-registration for PlayStation 5 preorders last month, and the console is expected to launch sometime this holiday season.
So far, Sony revealed hardware specifications of the upcoming PlayStation 5 console, its design along with the design of the DualSense controller, the design of the PS5 Game Box, and announced 38 games that will be released together with the console.
