First announcement of the night is a very big surprise: Final Fantasy XVI

What are we expecting?

Obviously the whole point of this event is to confirm all the details we need to know, but that doesn't mean we can't have a good ol' guess at what will be said. So let's do it:

Release date: as per our earlier post, Sony have only talked about 'this holiday' but we're pretty sure it'll align with the Xbox Series X date allowing plenty time to buy, wrap and pop under millions of fir trees. Mid-November expected

Price: based on everything we've seen and heard, expect the new console to set you back around $500...and whatever that translates into for your currency

Showcase time: here's something we can tell you for certain, well, at least what Sony have stated. The running time for the event will be 40 minutes. How much action can they fit into that?

What time is the event where you live?

Delayed launch info

Thanks to Covid-19, 2020 has been a quite remarkable year - and not for good reasons. This has seen a number of events postponed or cancelled and one of those was the anticipated E3 in June where we’d have expected to find out the information we have waited until today to get.

In June Sony did manage to give us quite a bit of information, and today we get the rest.

Here’s what we learned in June…

Teaser from Sony

As well as spec, pricing and release dates, much of the excitement around the launch is focused on the gaming.

The event is likely to feature Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which are both scheduled to be released around the time of the PS5's launch. There will be plenty of action for sure.

"Before PlayStation 5 launches this holiday, we wanted to give you one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond!)," Sony said on the PlayStation Blog.
