Sony is having a PlayStation 5 Showcase on Wednesday September 16th at 4PM EST/1PM PST. I’m guessing we’ll finally learn the official release date and pricing. The date will be sometime in the middle of November probably, and the price is likely to be $499 for the regular PS5 and $399 for the digital version. I don’t think they would have them cost the same considering the regular has a disk drive while the digital doesn’t, and $499 and $399 are the most likely prices. I can’t imagine Sony goes with $599 and $499 prices, especially after Microsoft announced the Xbox Series X at $499. Still, though, it’ll be good to have official confirmation on the release date and pricing. Hopefully they announce the full launch lineup but if they held off on the date and price for so long, they’ll probably save that for another time.
