You didn’t think Sony was done, did you? Obviously last month’s excellent PlayStation 5 showcase was a huge success, but there are still many secrets the manufacturer’s keeping under wraps. For example, we don’t know the PS5’s price or release date, although we do have a growing list of announced PS5 games.
There’s much more to come, though, and speculation regarding an August State of Play continues to gather pace. Writing on Twitter today, Eurogamer.net’s Tom Phillips said that “Sony has first- and third-party stuff still to announce. Feels like it has quite smartly held some stuff back.” Some of these titles, which could include Silent Hill, will be showcased next month.
Microsoft is also preparing a big blowout of its own on 23rd July, and while the livestream will mostly be reserved for its own exclusive titles, we assume there’ll be some third-party content included as well. Between these two big broadcasts and Ubisoft Forward at the weekend, it should be a big couple of months for PS5 news as we edge closer to the console’s imminent launch.
I thought this was obvious
Ooh, I could do with a State of Play, it would be nice to see some of the smaller games coming to PS5 or an extended look at the big hitters.
yeah sony is going to announce some more big games not so long after the xbox event to overshadow it.
It will be nice to get an official release date but the most important thing to me right now is finding out that all important price tag
MS is nearly at make or break point in their hopes to be a serious competitor to Sony. So far they've been making a lot of noise but so little buzz. Sony meanwhile have brought bigger impacts with less effort, which is borne out through the levels of engagement PS5 has been getting through websites, social media and YouTube.
When do Pre-orders open and price please.
Theres definitely more to share about the launch games we already know too.
I mean, that's kinda obvious, isn't it?
I would love to also see them do a deep dive into PS4 BC. Show the upgraded games. Bloodbourne 60fps 4K is my dream. And it was obvious Sony held stuff bk we know Silent hill exists for a start and Japan studio hasn't shown what they are doing. Then theres the new studio. Should be a good month or so.
Well I hope so seeing as the console is releasing within 6 months. I assume they will wait until Ghosts is out in the wild, then it will be back to back blow outs, baybee.
Me to wife 2 years ago: Im getting a PS5 when it comes out so get ready. Wife: No youre not.
Me to wife a year ago: Next year is probably PS5 release, and I'm getting it so just budget for that ok? Wife: We'll talk about it when they say its coming out.
Me to wife earlier this year: Cant wait to get the PS5 later this year! Wife: Eye roll
Wife to me as release news comes out: I heard they announced the PS5, you excited about it? Me: Can't wait!
And this is how you do it, ladies and gentlemen.
@ILikeStake I've told me GF that we really need this new router that's coming out this year. It's the only way to get a safe 5G connection in the house.
@ILikeStake I had a discussion with my missus a little while ago that I wasn't sure which system I was going to get first - the PS5 or the Series X. She told me to just get both at the same time, why wait?
Can't argue that.
NOTE: I am waiting a 2 - 3 months after the systems launch before buying to make sure there aren't any glaring hardware issues with the systems. Of course, it could be possible that the systems release 2 to 3 months apart, too - in which case, the earlier console "wins the race".
I think this is a forgone conclusion. Reason I say this is because Jim Ryan made that announcement after the PS5 showcase saying " If you didnt find something you liked here. We have plenty more to announce". I feel they either have a few extra big titles to announce or some hidden features like BC in some way for PS1/PS2.
@ILikeStake love your long game! Im still working out how i can not only convince my wife that i need a ps5, but also a 4k tv 😞
If they watched the ps5 games announcement a few weeks ago they would know that there is more to show in the coming months like the end of the video says. I guess Crapgamer on YouTube gets his same repetitive news from this repetitive source.
@Rob_230 Projector FTW!
"It will be so good to have movie nights with the kids! Just think of the amazing memories we'll make together!"***
***Sub friends for kids as needed
Can't wait for it, once Ghost is release it is pretty much all out assault for PS5 marketing. Here's hoping the rumoured Silent Hill remains true and also announcement of more Japanese games.
I love the fact that Sony still have a big triple A title coming out for current gen (already preordered it) in Ghost of Tsushima. Waiting to hear about news on a new Uncharted game and I’m still hoping for a new 3rd person tactical game either SOCOM or a new IP. Sony can take my money right now for a PS5!
Knack 3 or GTFO
@oldschoo1987 Knack 3 Baybeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
you know this 5 looks like a white book on its side.It probably looks better standing up, but with kids running around I ALWAYS play on its side. PS4 gots the best look all-time I'd probably give 2nd to PS2. Next I''d go PS1. Given the 5 fourth place; beating only the 3 in dead last. But, its not the looks that count its the gameplay. Still, 4th place outta 5 Dang...
Mine Wife will be told “walking home from the pub I found this <PS5 sealed in the box> in some bushes I fell into......
@ILikeStake I heartily endorse this statement. Currently playing Days Gone through my projector and it’s ace of spades.
Sonic could come to PS5, is he?
The title of this article though!
Pot calling the kettle black.
Will be good to see the exclusive titles Sony has coming. Silent Hill will be an important game... I think we can assume its coming, there's no smoke without fire
@GamingFan4Lyf Ha! I had the exact same discussion with the exact same outcome. I don't think it's worth buying both systems though, between this and whatever the current Nintendo system is, there's only so much time in a day to play video games.
"Microsoft ... livestream will mostly be reserved for its own exclusive titles"
Short show, then. 😉😎
Nice, can't wait for more games to be revealed
I know there is alot of talk about ps5 prices vs xbox when they decide to release details, but here's something inagine if Sony say 500 for ps5 so then xbox say 450 or 400 then Sony say no worries we made a fake price high to undercut Microsoft and then Microsoft thinking they have made a good choice then get beaten to the punch, but i dunno if sony can announce a price then can reannounce a price after they have made one.
Will be interesting to see if sony make some silly price to then get microsoft to beat them not by alot then sony release the real price.
About time we got a release date and price anyway.
Bets in now for how many times you hear "EXCLUSIVE!" in that movie trailer voice on the Xbox showcase
Yep, makes sense that Sony might have a couple other titles to showcase as noone is expecting the price announcement to come in at ps4 launch price friendly levels...I agree though,I'm a little curious on more info about the b/c features & how it works...we still haven't heard that much about the new buttons on the controller working in game either.
I can confirm , the technique works like a charm, I call it "the Inception technique", I been working on it since the release of the N.Switch back in 2017, and couple weeks ago with the PS5 hardware reveal we even wacthed it togehter and the discussion was about where to place the gigantic console, and no longer about if I was going to get it or not .
@ShaiHulud Yeah, I still don't know if I am actually going to do it simply because I can only focus on one game at a time - it really doesn't make much sense.
Having Game Pass Ultimate until 2022, I may get the Series X first since I can literally only buy the console and play the games I am interested in playing.
Then again, if Demon's Souls (the only Soulsborne game I haven't played and finished [at least once]) is a launch title, I may get a PS5 first.
It's just nice to know that have the support to walk into GameStop, trade in my Xbox One X and PS4 Pro and walk out with both a PS5 and Series X.
One orator looked at the sky. 'Rain has stop but there are still dark clouds on the horizon.'
The rest of the orators, 'reports confirm that the weather smartly held back and more rain is expected'
@Rob_230 the "cat" broke ours years ago, so we decided to upgrade to a 4K one. I love my cat very much.
I have to think Microsoft understands their mistake with the last event, and they've said as much, so I expect we will see something pretty impressive on the 23rd. Whether it matches what Sony has or not is yet to be seen, but based on Phil Spencer's interviews of late, I don't think they feel any pressure of a make or break situation.
This generation could see two winners really, as they are both going in somewhat opposite directions. I truly think Microsoft could sell half the consoles that Sony does and be quite happy if they have millions of people signed up for Gamepass and playing their games on PC or eventually through XCloud.
STOP TALKING ABOUT A NEW SILENT HILL UNTIL WE HAVE PROOF OF A RELEASE DATE THESE THROWAWAY LINES OF RUMOUR ARE NO GOOD FOR MY HEART RATE
That is what we call.
Stage implementation and
@ILikeStake Ya'll need to start wearing the pants in the house. If I want something I buy it. Wife doesn't need to approve sheeeit. Getting an xbox series x.
@Jax01234 I could do that too but its way better if she has accepted it instead of burying her feelings about it down to come out later. But she's my friend and partner, not just my wife...so I care about what she thinks. I don't see that as a bad thing, its cool if you want to be pants-wearing boss-of-wife guy though!
Lol I mean it's not about being boss of wife,, she doesn't have to check in with me either if she makes a purchase. Ima grown man, I'm not gonna jump through a bunch of hoops so that she "let's me" lmao. Most women love trying to control/tame a man. It starts small with stuff like this. Be strong fella, Godspeed to you. lol
@Jax01234 It's 600 bucks, not like buying something little... But maybe you're rich and buying something like that is no big deal. I got kids and bills, big purchases gotta be cleared, and it goes both ways. But godspeed to you I guess?
