A new PlayStation 5 showcase event has been announced by Sony. Scheduled for Wednesday, September 16, the event will, according to a Playstation Blog post, give us “one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond!).”
The showcase is expected to last around 40 minutes, and will “feature updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.” The event times are as follows: 1pm PDT / 9pm BST / 10pm CEST, and will stream on Twitch and Youtube.
Expectations are high going into next Wednesday, as this showcase should reveal new details for upcoming PlayStation 5 games, from Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Gran Turismo 7, and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. Most important of all, we’re hoping that Sony will, at last, confirm a release date for the next-gen console, and make our eyes water with the prices.
Yesterday, new details for the PS5 were released online. The box contents and model numbers were discovered by Daniel Ahmad, a games analyst. The information came from a distributor’s database in Hong Kong, which included the standard and digital edition model numbers, and complete box contents, (including the pre-installed Astro's Playroom on SSD).
Recently, PlayStation further provided a detailed rundown for the PlayStation 4 peripherals and accessories compatible with the forthcoming PlayStation 5. Via the PlayStation Blog, they released a short FAQ to give the answers. Sony confirmed that the Dualshock 4 controller would work with PlayStation 5 games, while specialty peripherals, such as racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks, would all be compatible with PlayStation 5, and supported PlayStation 4 titles. Plus, they further add that “the PS Move Motion Controllers and the PlayStation VR Aim Controller will work with supported PS VR games on PS5.”
The PlayStation 5 is scheduled for release this Holiday season, alongside its main competitor, the Xbox Series X. The Series X recently had a release date of November 10 confirmed, so PlayStation 5 release date news shouldn't be far off.
