Sony will hold a final “Showcase” event on September 16, where new updates will be revealed, as announced.
It was not said that the event would necessarily have details on the console itself. However, with no further updates available yet and with Microsoft having revealed just about everything about its Xbox Series X and S, it will be noteworthy if Sony continues to keep the details of its console a secret.
All Sony has said about the event is that it will “weigh about 40 minutes and include updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.”
It will be broadcast live on Twitch and YouTube on Wednesday, starting at 1 p.m. Pacific time or 9 p.m. in the UK.
Sony stated that this would be the last of these showcase events before the console starts up. It just said – as always – that the release date would be “this holiday”.
However, if it does, the company has no further options to publicly announce a price or release date for its console after waiting for Microsoft to first unveil its new Xboxes.
Numerous rumors suggest that both companies were waiting for the other company to blink first and reveal details of their pricing, amid uncertainty about how much this generation of consoles should cost.
Microsoft said its Xbox Series X will cost $ 499 and that it will also bring out a smaller, less powerful Xbox Series S for $ 299. Both consoles will be available on November 10th.
