Sony announced another PS5 Showcase event and it’s scheduled to broadcast today, on September 16. It arrives shortly after Microsoft revealed the prices and release dates for the Xbox Series S and Series X following a major leak. Unlike previous Sony events, the blog post announcing the showcase didn’t include a note cautioning viewers not to expect major news. This omission, along with the timing, has lead to speculation that this might be when Sony will announce the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition prices and release dates. Here’s everything you need to know to watch so you don’t miss it.

What to Expect From the PS5 Showcase
Officially, all we know about Wednesday’s PlayStation event is that Sony has plans to give us, “one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch,” as well as a look at some of the games expected to arrive post-launch. With Microsoft ahead of the curve for next-gen console prices and release date announcements, there’s an expectation Sony will finally deliver on its own. The hope is that we’ll officially get a list of PS5 launch games, as well as release dates and prices for both consoles.
