It’s the big day for Sony, which is organizing a new PlayStation 5 Showcase conference online at 10 p.m. this evening. Price of the PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition, release date, launch games, services offered … many answers are expected during this event, which we will dissect through this live feed throughout the evening .
A release date and a price?
As Sony announced last Saturday, this PS5 Showcase will last about 40 minutes and will “discover what the PS5 has in store for us”. The biggest expectations are obviously the release date and the price of the two models on the program: the PS5 with Blu-ray player and the PS5 Digital Edition, which as its name suggests does not. Last week, Microsoft made official the date and price of the two future Xboxes, the Xbox Series S (€ 299.99) and Xbox Series X (€ 499.99), both scheduled for November 10.
New games presented?
On his blog, Sony announces “an overview of the games that will be available with the PS5 at launch and beyond” during this event. The previous PS5 Showcase had unveiled several house productions, including Marvel’s Spider-Man : Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls Remake, Horizon : Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank : Rift Apart and Gran Turismo 7, but also third-party games such as Resident Evil Village, Project athia or Hitman 3. So you can expect to review some titles from this list and discover specific release dates, but also some surprises. Rumors suggest the presence of a certain Final Fantasy XVI.
