As Sony Interactive Entertainment announced, the next big games showcase for PlayStation 5 will take place next week. Around 40 minutes of presentations and announcements are promised.
This week, Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be available from November 10, 2020, at a price of $499 and $299, respectively.
Sony Interactive Entertainment, on the other hand, is still holding back and is only talking about a launch in this year’s Christmas business with regard to the PlayStation 5. However, we may find out more in the coming week. Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the next big game showcase for the PS5 at the weekend.
The said online event will take place on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at 1 pm Pacific Time. According to official information, the games showcase has a running time of around 40 minutes and will give us a detailed look at various first and third party productions that will be published in the launch window of PlayStation 5 and beyond.
So far Sony Interactive Entertainment has only talked about the presentation of games, but it cannot be ruled out that the final dates and prices of the two PlayStation 5 versions will be mentioned. Finally, the Japanese company surprised us with the unveiling of the PlayStation 5 design during the big PS5 online event in June.
PS5 will be released in two different versions and could be released on November 19 or 20, 2020, according to unconfirmed rumors. Experts assume that the classic version of the PlayStation 5 will be offered for $499, while the price of the digital-only version, in which an optical drive was dispensed with for cost reasons, could be $399.
However, this information has not yet been officially confirmed.
