A few days after Nintendo celebrated its 35th anniversary of Super Mario, rumors arose that Sony would be celebrating the 25th anniversary of PlayStation 1 in the United States with a major Playstation 5 showcase. However, this rumor is contradicted by an official Playstation blog post.
WhatsApp first reported on a Reddit post on 4Chan allegedly citing “official” leaks, claiming that Sony would make a major reveal on September 9, 2020.
The post claimed that Sony would eventually open the pre-order link, revealing the PS5’s price and release date, showing the console’s UI and new features, and more. The alleged showcase will then go on to reveal new gameplay footage from previously announced titles Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon barred west, Ratchet and clank And Call of Duty: Cold War.
However, we learned through GamesRadar that Sony has no such plans. Instead, they will announce “games coming to PlayStation VR” throughout the week, as well as expanding new development for previously announced titles. They also announced sales on most top PSVR games.
Reddit has labeled the original post as false, and it is clear that Sony has no plans to surprise and switch abruptly. We will have to wait longer for any official PS5 news.
Another false prophecy among many people
Rumors about the PS5’s price or release date are over a dozen, and we’ve seen a lot of “credible” rumors as bunk. It is amazing that this 4Chan rumor followed in his footsteps.
A Twitter rumor suggested that the PS5 pre-order would open in March at all. That apparently did not happen. Meanwhile, we’ve reported on several examples of leaked PS5 prices, including Amazon and a French retailer that all turned out to be fake.
From this point of view, it was unlikely that Sony, a Japanese company, would consider such a US-centric landmark sufficiently important for a global disclosure of information that it has kept hidden for months. .
What do we really know about the PS5 price and pre-order? For a start, pre-orders are expected to be very limited, so you want to be with your computer on Wednesday, when Sony reveals a surprise. On the other hand, Sony expects that you won’t need to pre-order to buy the PS5 at launch, so if early pre-orders sell out fast, you’re not disappointed.
Sony says that it will “emphasize price as opposed to price” when fixing the official price, and will sell digital-only consoles at a lower list price than the disc version.
Finally, if the latest release date is rumored that the PS5 will launch after the Xbox series in mid-November, it is true that Sony will finally have to inform us of the official launch soon.
