Months of rumors and speculation will come to an end today. Sony will finally reveal the key details of the PlayStation 5 via a digital event, the second since the console was introduced in mid-June. Although those from Japan only promised to show the games that will accompany the PS5 at its launch, it is an open secret that today we will know other data such as the price and availability date.
The second event of the PlayStation 5 will be held at 10:00 p.m. in Spain and 3:00 p.m. in Mexico
Here in Hipertextual we will offer you the most important announcements of the Showcase, however, if you want to follow the live broadcast, you can do so in this same publication. The presentation will begin at 22:00 from Spain and 15:00 from Mexico, and will last approximately 40 minutes. It is also expected that Sony will share some videos with gameplay of Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the remake of Demon’s Souls, among others.
According to the latest rumors, the PlayStation 5 would be available on November 13 or 20, while its price would reach $ 499 for the standard version and $ 399 for the Digital Edition. Other reports are less encouraging and anticipate a cost close to $ 600, which would surely generate quite a few negative opinions among many consumers. Our recommendation, of course, is to moderate expectations and be patient until we hear the official announcement.
Microsoft, for its part, has already moved its cards since last week by revealing the prices and launch dates of its two next-gen consoles. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S hit the market on November 10 for $ 499 and $ 299, respectively.. The cheap hardware is shaping up to be a best seller, mainly because it will allow you to enjoy next generation games without making a considerable expense. Of course, sacrificing some technical characteristics that we already explained to you. Let’s see how Sony and the PlayStation 5 respond.
