    PlayStation has been pretty tight-lipped about its next-gen console, with only its controller, logo and some spec details unveiled. However, we will finally learn (a bit) more about the PS5.

    Jim Ryan, the President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, announced via a PlayStation Blog post today that a digital showcase about the games launching on the console will air next week. The event which will run for "a bit more than an hour" to introduce "the next generation of games" from various game studios.

    While it was not clarified if we'll finally get our first look at the console itself or get more information about its pricing, Jim Ryan assured that this event is part of a series of PS5 updates and that after next week, they will have more to share.

    The online PS5 event is planned for next Thursday, June 4, at 1:00 pm Pacific Time which will stream on Twitch and YouTube.

    "The PlayStation 5 500GB console will be priced at just $500 at launch, while the PlayStation 5 2TB console will be priced at $700 at launch."
    I needed something to say so I could say that I'm first, but somebody probably already beat me.

    I hope they answer the top questions

    Is the VR Head Set going to be compatible with the PS5
    Is the Vita still going to be relevant with the PS5
    Is the Dualshock 4 Controllers going to be cross compatible
    Do you still need to install data on the HD if you have the disk
    How silent is the fan
    How long is the controller battery going to last / how long does it take the battery to fully charge
    How is BC Looking for PS3 games and Possible PS2 and PS1
    Are more PS4 games going to be available on PS Now since the PS5 is launched
    Are PS4 games going to be cheaper since PS5 is coming out or How much of an increase will PS5 games be

    Much more questions but these are the important ones.

    You already know this answer. That isn't ever changing.

    It doesn't make sense to own the disk lol if they going to dump the whole game on the HD. I like how PS3 did it they only took a small percentage of the data install maybe 2-5 gig tops.

    Maybe they don't want you to own the disk, or possess a disk at all.

    I like being able to resell console games after they eventually come to PC.

    I always found it incredibly weird to dump the whole entire game from the disk to the HD. If I wanted to do that I would have just bought digital the point of the disk was not to use that much of your HD space

    I have a good number of digital games on my PS4 since they had some good deals in the past for games but the problem is my PS4 was the launch 500gb. Most of the space was taken up by the disk game installs I just dont understood why they dump the whole game vs how PS3 only took a percentage.

    They've been bigging up the speed of the SSD for loading times, no way you'll be able to load from slow disc instead.

    9pm UK time fwiw.

    When they first started digital games dumb me thought digital would be cheaper than physical. I mean they're cutting out the middle man they don't have to manufacture any discs so I thought for sure it'd be $10 cheaper at least and go down in prices faster. The opposite is true, physical is cheaper and go down in prices faster. That is why I prefer physical, if they would stop being greedy and make digital cheaper then I'll go digital.
