After Microsoft revealed the price and release date of its new Xbox, everything points to Sony doing something similar next week. This is because the Japanese has just announced a new event dedicated to PlayStation 5.
This event will take place next Wednesday, September 16th. You will be able to see everything, live, from 9 pm in Lisbon, through the PlayStation YouTube channel.
Sony promises gaming news, but more surprises are expected
In the publication made on the official PlayStation blog, Sony promises us 40 minutes full of news about some of the games that will be released for PlayStation 5. However, the expectation is all in the eventual announcement of the price and launch date of the console.
I recall that the design of the PlayStation 5 was revealed precisely at the last online event where the company showed some games developed for the console. So there is a great expectation that what everyone wants to know will be revealed next week.
After the announcements that Microsoft made this week, Sony certainly will not want to waste time revealing the same about PlayStation 5. Furthermore, we have the fact that reservations for the new Xbox Series S and Series X start on September 22nd.
In other words, Sony will certainly take the opportunity to divert players’ attention to its new console. But for that, he will have the difficult task of making us forget the fantastic € 299 price of the Xbox Series S.
Alleged PlayStation 5 prices
- PlayStation 5 – € 499
- PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – € 399
These are not official figures, but based on what the rumors have suggested in recent months. The big expectation is now in the price of the digital version of PlayStation 5.
Its direct rival (Xbox Series S) will hit the market for only 299 euros and that could be decisive for many to migrate to Microsoft consoles. We’ll see if Sony can match the prices of the new Xbox.
