Sony has scheduled PS5 event for Wednesday, September 16th, 2020 via its’ blog. The technology company explained that it will talk about PS5 launch titles and other PS5 games releasing after that.
According to the tech company, before PlayStation 5 launches this holiday, we wanted to give you one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond!).
Our next digital showcase will weigh in at around 40 minutes, and feature updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.
Tune in live on Twitch or YouTube this Wednesday, September 16 at 1pm PDT / 9pm BST / 10pm CEST to see what’s next for PS5.
Since Sony held its PS5 event in June, Microsoft has had a games event for Xbox Series X, revealed a more affordable next-gen console in Xbox Series S, and announced prices and release date for both those variants. Pre-orders for Xbox Series X and Series S kick off Tuesday, September 22 — and Sony doesn’t want to be standing around as that happens.
And with the PS5 also expected to launch in November as with the Xbox Series family, Sony will want to open pre-orders soon as well. Though its complicated pre-order system — at least in the US — which involves registering your interest that might get you invited to pre-order the PS5 leaves a lot to be desired.
Moreover, we’ve already gotten a look at 27 PS5 games at the previous PS5 event, so another event dedicated entirely to those games seems unnecessary. It seems more logical that Sony will hype up its game offerings for the PS5 before unveiling prices and launch date at the end. After all, Sony had a similar playbook at the previous PS5 event, where it unveiled the PS5 hardware and accessories after showcasing all the games.
