Sony will hold its PlayStation 5 showcase today, Wednesday Sept. 16, as the next-generation console gears up for its holiday season launch.
The event, which was announced through a post on the official PlayStation blog, will start at 1 p.m. PT and run for 40 minutes.

The PlayStation 5 showcase will be streamed today through the PlayStation’s official Twitch and YouTube channels. We will update this post with a livestream once the event is about to begin.
The showcase offers “one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond),” according to Sony. The event will feature updates from Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios and from third-party developers working on games for the console.
The biggest questions that remain for the PlayStation 5, however, are its price and release date, and it remains unclear if these will be revealed in today’s showcase.
Earlier this month, Microsoft revealed the Xbox Series S, promising “next-gen performance in the smallest Xbox ever,” with a price of $299, or $25 over 24 months through Xbox All Access. The Xbox Series X, meanwhile, will cost $499, or $35 over 24 months.
With Microsoft revealing such details for the Xbox Series S and Series X, Sony may take the opportunity to answer its competitor today.
