Well, it has been a long road towards the PlayStation 5 release date and price, but today’s presentation should be the final stop before PS5 pre-orders go live. Along with fresh new looks at titles from Sony’s biggest studios and partners, we are expecting to get the official PS5 price and release date any time now. After Microsoft unleashed official pricing and pre-order dates last week, expectations moved to Sony to finally leave us with a cost of entry and start date for its next-generation of gaming. Head below to watch today’s PlayStation 5 September showcase event.
PlayStation 5 release date and price?
On top of the expected announcement of the PlayStation 5 release date and price, Sony is promising a 40-minute presentation with what sounds like wall-to-wall gameplay. As we reported when Sony initially announced today’s PlayStation 5 showcase, it is planning to “feature updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.”
While it’s hard to say exactly what that means — brand new, unseen PS5 titles or just more of what we have already seen — the real draw of today’s event will be when and if Sony decides to drop the official PlayStation 5 release date and price, along with some kind of pre-order schedule. Recent reports from Bloomberg suggested the standard model will come in at $449 — about $50 below the Series X — with the all-digital variant shipping at just below $400. That is about $100 more than the Xbox Series S. But only time will tell now.
