Sony will host a special PlayStation 5 showcase event on Wednesday, September 1
The Japanese tech giant didn’t reveal the price and release date for the PlayStation 5. Many believe Sony will use this “digital showcase” on Wednesday to announce availability details for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Editions.
The announcement of a 40-minute PlayStation 5 presentation comes at a time when Sony is under pressure to reveal more details about the next-generation game console. Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S would launch on November 10 for $ 499 and $ 299, respectively. The Redmond, Washington-based company also announced that the consoles will be available for pre-order later this month.

Sony, on the other hand, didn’t get the PS5 price right. The PS5’s retail price is unknown, though many speculate that the flagship console could cost over $ 500. For now, Sony only said that the PS5 will arrive during the “vacation” season.
