A new PlayStation 5 event will be held on Wednesday. Sony has also unveiled a new TV spot for the next-gen console. What can we expect in the live stream? Is there finally the PS5 release & price?
The next PlayStation 5 event will already take place on Wednesday evening, September 16. After Microsoft presented the price & release of the Xbox Series S | X in the past few days, Sony should finally reveal some details about the PS5 that fans were waiting for.
A New PS5 Event
The new PS5 event will take place on Wednesday at 10:00 PM CEST. The digital showcase will last about 40 minutes and will mainly focus on updates to the latest titles from PlayStation Studios and partner developers.
This time the focus will be once again on games. However, it can be assumed that Sony will use the last minutes to finally unveil the PlayStation 5 release and price. According to current rumors, the Japanese have lowered the price of the next-gen console after Microsoft took the first step.
In addition to announcing the price and release, information about the pre-order start date is also considered likely. What else could Sony show? It is conceivable that Sony will use the PS5 event to present studio acquisitions or start-ups that will complement PlayStation Studios with the new console. Perhaps there will also be more details about PlayStation 5 backward compatibility and PlayStation VR 2. We'll just have to wait and see.
PS5 TV Spot: Play Has No Limits
Shortly before the new event, Sony unveiled the new PlayStation 5 TV spot under the motto "Play Has No Limits". Here's some more info from the official site:
A few months ago, we introduced our first global tagline for the PlayStation brand, Play Has No Limits. Today we are pleased to share our latest global brand spot, “The Edge.” This spot brings the idea of Play Has No Limits to life through an evocative visual metaphor — with gamers taking us on an adventure that they never dreamed could be possible.
An impressive, albeit not very meaningful commercial, in which the soundtrack, in particular, should give fans of the Netflix series Stranger Things goosebumps.
