How to watch
The PlayStation 5 storefront will be streamed on the PlayStation's official Twitch and YouTube channels.
No registration is required to view the online-only storefront. Interested viewers just have to visit the platform of their choice and wait for the stream to start.
What to expect
The showcase offers "another look at some of the great games that are about to launch (and beyond!) On PS5," according to the blog post. The event will include updates from Sony Interactive Entertainment's Worldwide Studios and third party developers working on games for the console.
The biggest questions that remain open for the PlayStation 5 are its price and release date. It remains unclear whether these will be published in the upcoming showcase. It looks like the event will only focus on games for the next generation console. However, with Microsoft revealing such details for the Xbox Series S and Series X, Sony could take the opportunity to respond to its competitor.
Xbox Series S, Series X Prize Revealed
Microsoft introduced the Xbox Series S, which promises "next generation performance in the smallest Xbox ever," priced at $ 299 or $ 25 for 24 months on Xbox All Access. The Xbox Series X is priced at $ 499 or $ 35 for 24 months.
Pre-orders for the Microsoft consoles begin on September 22nd and are expected to be released on November 10th.
