What will be shown at the PS5 Showcase?

So, here's the interesting bit. According to Sony, the PS5 showcase will feature "updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners". In other words, the time will mostly be filled with new looks at PS5 games. Presumably, the focus will be on games coming within the launch window. We'd expect appearances from games like Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Destruction AllStars, among others. Who knows, there may even be one or two surprises.

Could this finally be when we learn the PS5's price and release date, too? The company hasn't confirmed anything to that effect, but we think it's highly likely the showcase will wrap up with these crucial details. Hopefully, Sony uses this event to answer all our lingering questions about PS5. There's not long until we find out.
