Next week, Sony will proceed on to hold a special event with regards to its latest flagship console in the Sony Playstation 5. The company will go on and broadcast a 40-minute “digital showcase” on Wednesday, September 16th which will go on to include updates from first-party Sony game studios and also third-party partners. The Japanese company is pitching the event as “one more look at some of the great games coming to Sony Playstation 5 launch (and beyond!)” before the console launches.
It is also quite likely that we’ll get a release date as well as the price that the Sony Playstation 5 will demand. Microsoft was in fact originally planning on to announce its Xbox Series S and also its Xbox Series X launch plans as well as pricing just next week, before the $299 price tag that the Series S will demand leaked. Sony opened up pre-registration for Ps5 orders last month however the company still hasn’t gone on to share a date for the official pre-orders or pricing and release date information.Nonetheless, it looks increasingly likely that we will indeed find out the price of the Sony Playstation 5 on Wednesday – especially when you consider the fact that Microsoft is indeed opening up Xbox preoders on the 22nd of September. The company’s Xbox Series X console is priced at $499, however Sony has two pieces to provide for both its disc-less digital edition console and of course, the regular Sony Playstation 5. Indeed it is also but possible that we could end up seeing some next-generation competitive pricing going into the release of the new generation flagship consoles from both Sony and Microsoft – especially when taking into consideration the fact that the Xbox Series S will be priced at $299. Exactly how competitive and aggressive the pricing strategies will be with regards to both the companies – only time will tell.
