PlayStation 5 to "offer a new generation of experiences" at launch this November

The PlayStation 5 is coming just in time for the holidays.

On Thursday morning (09/17), Sony Interactive Entertainment aired the PlayStation 5 Showcase, unveiling a fresh set of next gen games, exclusives, and the new PlayStation Plus Collection.

The 40-minute digital showcase premiered new announcement and gameplay trailers for the console's upcoming line up games, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Demon's Souls, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition, Final Fantasy XVI, Five Nights at Freddy's Security Breach, Hogwarts Legacy, a new God of War title. Exclusive titles will be priced from $49.99 USD to $69.99 USD at launch.

The PlayStation 5 will launch with two models—PS5 Digital Edition and PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive.

Both models will use the same custom processor with integrated CPU and GPU to ramp up your gaming experience from high-fidelity graphics up to 4K. An ultra-high speed SSD with integrated I/O that offers lightning-fast loading will also keep waiting periods to the minimum, while you enjoy 3D audio capabilites and the new DualSense wireless controller.

“Since we first announced our next generation console last year, we have received astounding support from developers and gaming fans all around the world, and it’s truly humbling,” Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment says in a statement. “Now we are just a couple of months away from launching PS5, which will offer a new generation of experiences that go beyond players’ expectations of how games can look, feel, sound, and play. We can’t wait for our fans to experience for themselves the incredible speed, the heightened immersion and the breathtaking games on PS5 when we launch this November.”
