Sony PlayStation 5 Showcase: September event - price and release date confirmed

Today is the day, or so we hope. Sony is airing their latest PlayStation Showcase event that, hopefully, finally, gives us the PlayStation 5 launch date and retail price. Considering that Microsoft already revealed both of those bits of information for their next-gen console, it can only be expected that Sony would do the same. Only time will tell if this is the event we've been waiting for. Catch the livestream, which kicks off at 1pm PDT/9pm BST, and lasts for 40 minutes, giving us "one more look" at what the PlayStation 5 will offer.

Live Coverage


The first game's footage is captured on PC emulating the PS5 experience. Square Enix.

It's a new Final Fantasy game. Action-based combat. A medieval-esque setting. Final Fantasy XVI. PlayStation console exclusive, will also launch on PC.

Now the rest of the games will be captured on actual PS5 hardware...

Question is worth it to buy the disk version vs digital? cause I feel the disk is useless now since almost every games need to be install to hard drive anyway

Always buy the disk version because yes the game disk is useless but you can still buy games very cheap from 3rd party resellers (offer up, ebay, craiglist , gamestop) physical last forever there is no guarentee we will have a PSN or Sony would even exist 50 years from now

It really depends on what your preferences are. Also how fast your internet connection is. With the small ass ssd the ps5 comes with and the large size of games now a days will you want to wait the time it takes to download a 100+ gb game every time u want to play it after you deleted it to play another one. Less than 1 tb might hold 10 games. That coupled with the fact noone has really said if you can at least store games on an external until you want to play them. (I've seen external mentioned for ps4 games but not an exact answer from sony on the external and ps5)

Everything about the ps5 is a joke.

-the xbox controller
-the HUGE box console that doubles as a space heater
- the prices of everything
-playstation now
-old games being remastered
-new games that look smudgy like regular nintendo switch games
-rumors of ps5 having in-game ads like that UFC game

final fantasy looked like a ps3 game, it was bad, and then they didnt even show anything about FF7-part2 lol. Im glad I left playstation a few years back, they suck now. Harry Potter did look good though.

But the disk is not saving you space cause u have install the disk game data to the console u can’t play game on the disk like old times. I believe the disk only verified u own the game

Yes but you can reinstall the game from disk and not have to re-download said game every time you want to play it

Or you could just homebrew it and have the games saved to your drives forever
if that isn't the case then you'll easily be able to find a rom of the game online for your ps5 romloader

I strongly doubt the PS5 will be modded. Hopefully at PS4 EOL it gets modded I dont feel like buying a 6.72 unit for $300 off ebay
