Sony has announced a new PlayStation 5 showcase scheduled for Wednesday, September 16 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. The event will focus on the console’s upcoming games. It will include a look at games coming at launch as well as those available in the future. If you haven’t made up your mind on purchasing the PS5 yet, this could be your chance.
The event will be shown on both Twitch and YouTube, and will last about 40 minutes. It’s games-focused rather than hardware-focused, and will feature updates on first-party and third-party games. We know that Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart are both scheduled to release near the system’s launch. Neither has a firm release date. Other games, such as the Demon’s Souls remake, don’t have release windows yet. There also isn’t an official date for the PS5 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, but it releases three days after Microsoft’s systems. Having that available as a launch title for the PS5 would certainly be a big deal.
Sony has still not revealed the release date or price for the PS5, but it may have no choice now that Microsoft has revealed the Xbox Series X/S is set to release on November 10. While the Series X will cost $500, the less-powerful Series S will cost $300. This strategy is different from Sony’s, where the only difference between the PS5 and PS5 Digital systems is a disc drive. The price difference between the two PS5 systems is unlikely to be nearly as large. The internal specs are very similar to the Xbox Series X. That could mean parity between the two this November.
