Sony has announced that a PlayStation 5 showcase will broadcast live on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at 1pm PT/4pm ET/9pm BST.

It’s not specifically mentioned, but one could assume that we will also find out the price and release date of both the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, as Microsoft has finally revealed that both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be released on November 10, 2020, at $499 and $299, respectively.
This will be the first focused PS5 event since the reveal of the console itself and such PS5 games as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West.
While pre-orders have yet to go up for the PS5, Sony has offered its fans a way to sign up for a chance to be one of the first to buy a PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, as well as many of the official accessories.
Sony has also confirmed that PS5 pre-orders won’t be a surprise, so if Sony does announce a price and release date at this upcoming event, it will most likely open up pre-orders at a later date. Microsoft did something similar, as pre-orders will go live for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on September 22, 2020.
