The time has finally come for Sony to unveil the official PS5 price and release date – and, we have to say, it’s about time.
While the company has been slowly drip-feeding us details on the PS5 specs, games, peripherals, and features, there’s still some key information we don’t know yet. For one, we don’t know when the PS5 will launch outside of its confirmed “Holiday 2020” release window (although our money is on November).
But arguably, most importantly, we don’t know how much the PlayStation 5 – or the PS5 Digital Edition – will cost at launch, or when pre-orders will open.
In addition, we still don’t know what the PS5 games launch lineup will look like, nor have we had a look at the overhauled PlayStation interface.
Fortunately, we’re expecting Sony to tie up most (if not all) of these loose ends in just a few hours, during its PS5 Showcase which kicks off at 9pm BST / 1pm PT / 4pm ET (September 17 at 6am AEST).
We’ll be following along all the PS5 Showcase action live right here, including expert commentary and opinion.
