Sony announced the PlayStation 5 Showcase event will be on 16th September 2020 at 1 PM PDT. So In India, that translates to 17th September 2020 at 1:30 AM IST. In this event, Sony says that it will talk about the PlayStation 5 launch titles and other PS5 games releasing after that. But it is rumored that, in this event, Sony might reveal the cost and availability of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation Digital Edition.
Agenda of this event:-
Since the company held its event in June, Microsoft has had a games event for Xbox Series X. Revealed a more affordable next-gen console in Xbox Series S. Microsoft announced the prices and release date for both those variants. The pre-orders for Xbox Series X and Series S kick off on 22nd September 2020. So Sony also wants to open the pre-orders as soon as possible in order to give tough competition to Microsoft. However, it is expected that Sony will launch it’s PlayStation 5 in November. To stand as the major competitor at the event of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series launch.
Further, we have already obtained a look at 27 PS5 games at the earlier PS5 event. So another event dedicated entirely to those games appears useless. So, It looks like Sony will hype up its game offerings for the PS 5 before revealing prices and launch date at the end of this event. Sony had a similar playbook at the earlier PS5 event, where it revealed the PS 5 hardware and accessories after showcasing all the games. So the same strategy might be seen from the company this time also. That is it will first talk about the launch titles and games and then reveal the launch date, price, and availability at the last.
Sony PlayStation 5 event will be on 16th September at 1 PM PDT, So In India, that translates to 17th September 2020 at 1:30 AM IST. This lasts about 40 minutes and will be available on YouTube and Twitch platforms.
