PlayStation critics have argued that there’s no point in buying a PS5 yet because it barely has any next-gen games, but Sony is looking to reassure current owners that big things are headed to its latest console.
The gaming giant revealed today that it will be hosting a new PlayStation Showcase event set for Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 1 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. BST. PlayStation owners are urged to tune in to see what’s next for the PS5.
According to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Sid Shuman, the PlayStation Showcase will last 40 minutes and include updates from Sony’s first-party PlayStation Studios, as well as some of the industry’s “most imaginative” developers. Some of the games that will be showcased will be released as early as this holiday.
Shuman clarified that the event won’t include any new information on PlayStation’s next generation of VR, however. Sony confirmed back in February that it was developing a PS VR 2 headset that would feature enhanced resolution, field of view, and track and input. The headset will leverage a new orb-like controller with adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, finger-touch detection, and more.
One thing to note: PlayStation’s next generation of VR won’t make an appearance this time. But there will still be plenty of great PS5 games from developers large and small. We hope you can join us!
