Sony has announced yet another Showcase event for its upcoming next-gen console, the Playstation 5. So, here’s everything you’ll need to watch the PS5 event live.

After Microsoft confirmed and announced the release date and price for their new Xbox Series on September 8, it is now Sony’s turn to reveal another look at their next-gen console.

Only a few days after Xbox’s reveal, it was announced that Playstation would be hosting a full Showcase event to share more information about the PS5 and give more insight into the games fans can expect to see.

What to expect from the PS5 Showcase stream

For the September 16 PS5 Showcase, fans can expect to see a focus on many of the games that are scheduled to be released on the next-gen console.

“Before PlayStation 5 launches this holiday, we wanted to give you one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond!),” Sony announced in their September 12 post.

The PS5 Showcase on September 16 will focus on many of the upcoming titles.

While the exact games on display have not yet been confirmed, upcoming games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart are expected to feature in this showcase with titles such as Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, and more.

Many fans are still curious about how the Playstation 5 will be priced, however, it is unclear if Sony will share any information on the console’s costs but, with games being the primary focus of the September 16 stream, it is quite unlikely to be the case.
