World news – GB – PS5 price, release date and games confirmed: catch up on the big PS5 event


    The PS5 release date and price have been unveiled at today’s official PlayStation 5 event. Get all the info right now

    So, it finally happened. The PS5 price and release date got unveiled at today’s PS5 event. When PS5 pre-orders has just been revealed, too.

    Right here you can catch up on the PlayStation 5 Showcase event, watch the show, as well as get all the official information released.

    3) The PS5 release date is now confirmed as November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. The rest of the world get it on November 19, 2020.

    5) A PlayStation Plus Collection is coming that has over classic PS4 titles in that is playable on PS5.

    7) You can order a PS5 starting, according to a Tweet by Geoff Keighley, TOMORROW! All retailers taking orders can be found in T3’s PS5 pre-order guide.

    The PlayStation 5 Showcase took place at 1:00 PM PDT (that was 9:00 PM BST) on 16 September, 2020. The livestream can be watched in its entirety in the video below.

    The big PS5 price leak from early today comes from Spanish retailer El Corte Inglés and shows an image of the store’s inventory system on a computer.

    On the screen there are entries for two products, one called « PS5 1 » and another called « PS5 2 », along with entries for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

    The first PS5 console is shown to cost €499.90, while the second is priced at €399.90. Naturally, the more expensive PlayStation 5 is the full fat console, while the cheaper is the PS5 Digital Edition.

    And with the prices for the two Xbox systems the same as the officially confirmed prices, the authenticity of this leak appears genuine, and has been backed up by another PS5 price leak, too.

    Here at T3 we think this price leak means we can expect to see the US PS5 price to be $499 and the UK cost to be £449 (although £499 can’t be ruled out). We will find out for sure at today’s PS5 event, which can be watched below.

    So while we now have a very strong idea as to the PS5 price, what about the PS5 release date? Well, mid-to-late November remains the smart choice. A recent leak indicated that we could be looking at the week starting 16 November, 2020. This feels right to us at T3, as Microsoft is launching its console on November 10 and Sony will not want the US console maker to get a big head start.

    And as for PS5 pre-orders, nothing is yet confirmed (that’s why we can’t wait to watch today’s PS5 event), but we’re expecting them to open very soon. Xbox Series X pre-orders are opening on 22 September, 2020, so again we’re expecting Sony is going to go around this date, if not before.

    Well, as we mentioned above, we’re expecting the PS5 price and release date to be finally confirmed at the PlayStation 5 Showcase, as well as when PS5 pre-orders will open.

    The show is obviously going to involve a lot more than just that, though. We fully expect to see a lot  more from Sony’s PlayStation 5 exclusives, including Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West.

    Ever since Microsoft revealed the damaging news that Halo Infinite was going to slip into 2021 and not be a launch title, Sony’s dominance in terms of launch exclusives became very marked, and we expect the Japanese maker to really hammer this home.

    We’re also going to see much more from third-party titles, too, and we have hopes we may finally see something of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla running on PS5, too, as up till now we’ve only seen Xbox footage.

    In terms of games, we’ve also got a sneaky suspicion we might even see a tiny teaser for God of War 2, which small amounts of smoke has been building around recently.

    While we’re less sure of seeing it, we’re also still waiting for Sony to play its PlayStation VR 2 trump card. Rumors of the second-gen PSVR headset have been circulating for months now, with the new VR system apparently built from the ground up for PlayStation 5.

    Lastly, while we’ve seen plenty already of the PS5’s official accessories, we’re thinking we may see something from selected tie-in partners.

    We think today’s PS5 event is going to be a really great show, so make sure you join us later today to watch it live.

    The big news today, in the run up to the PlayStation 5 Showcase event, is that French retailer Fnac has been spotted putting out signs in its stores that show the PlayStation 5 and PS5 Digtial Edition, and read « available for pre-order » on them.

    These signs are « point of sale » advertising boards, and are frequently used in stores to notify people of hot new products. And, on this sign, the words « disponible en précommande » are clearly written, which translate directly from French to English as « available for pre-order ».

    This is clear, then. On the day of the PS5 Showcase event, when it has been heavily rumored that the PlayStation 5 price and release date is finally going to be revealed, as well as the PS5 pre-order start time, we’ve got a major retailer putting out advertising signs that say the PS5 is available to pre-order.

    Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put two-and-two together, does it. This indicates quite clearly that PS5 pre-orders are shortly going to open, and they could start at anytime from 1:00PM PDT onwards.

    What are the chances of Sony surprising everyone and opening up pre-orders before Microsoft does with its Xbox Series X and Series S consoles?
