Sony announces PS5 event on Wednesday 16 September

Sony is holding a special PlayStation 5 event next week. The company will air a 40-minute “digital showcase” on Wednesday 16 September which will include updates from first-party Sony Game Studios and third-party partners. Sony is looking at the event as one of the PS5’s (and beyond!) Launching in PS5 before the console’s launch.

It is also possible that we will get a release date and price for PlayStation 5. Microsoft was originally planning to announce its Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X launch plans and pricing next week, before the $ 299 price of the Series S leaked. Sony opened pre-registration for the PS5 pre-borders last month, but the company has still not shared official pre-borders or pricing and release dates.

There is a growing possibility that we will find out the price of the PS5 on Wednesday, especially given that Microsoft is opening the Xbox’s limits on 22 September. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X console costs $ 499, but Sony has two prices to provide for both the disc-less digital version PS5 and the regular PS5. We may witness some competitive next-gen pricing, most notably Microsoft’s $ 299 Xbox Series S.

Sony’s PlayStation 5 event will take place on Wednesday at 4PM ET / 1PM PT. Stay for The ledge For all the latest PS5 news on Wednesday.
