PS5 State of Play: PS5 event revealed price, release date and more! Will there be another PS5 Showcase?
As we move further towards the November, when will Sony give us more information about the PS5 in a State of Play?
Sony’s first PlayStation 5 event focused on the ‘future of gaming’, showing off numerous exclusive PS5 games. Since then, we’ve been treated to a smaller State of Play live-stream focused on PlayStation 4 and PSVR games, and now, a closer look at the PS5.
As the COVID-19 pandemic severely disrupted the marketing plans of most gaming companies, especially after E3’s cancellation, Sony’s plans for events are much more flexible and subject to change than they have been in previous years.

Following June’s huge PS5 reveal event, Sony finally treated us to another 40-minute showcase, giving us more details about the PS5 and its games. Read on to find out everything we saw, as well as if there will be another PS5 event…
When was shown in the latest PS5 event?
The PS5 showcase gave us a detailed look at Spider-Man: Miles Morales gameplay, alongside further information about Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Demon’s Souls, Deathloop and Resident Evil: Village.
Alongside these already-announced games, we were treated to a first look at Hogwarts: Legacy, Final Fantasy XVI and the announcement of a God of War sequel.
Aside from games, Sony revealed the PS5 will cost $499/£449, and will be released on November 12 in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The rest of the world will receive the PS5 a week later on November 19.
Following the event, the PS5’s pre-orders opened in some retailers September 16, while others waited until the morning of September 17.

Will Sony hold another PS5 event? What will we see in the next State of Play?
Given we now know most of the key details about the PS5 and its launch window, this is likely the final event dedicated to the console in general, marking the end of 2020’s Summer of Gaming.
This comes after Sid Shuman, the Senior Director of SIE Content Communications, stated in a PlayStation 5 blog post “we wanted to give you one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond!)”, hinting this is to be the final look at the console.
However, this doesn’t mean it will be radio silence from now until November 12. Sony likes to hold State of Play events dedicated to specific games, and so we wouldn’t be surprised if Spider-Man: Miles Morales received this treatment closer to its release.
