This week is seeing some major news on the next-gen console front, but it’s all been from Microsoft. The company announced the Xbox Series S yesterday, and then proceeded to reveal the release date and price for the Xbox Series X. This leaves PlayStation fans chomping at the bit for similar details regarding the PS5, but unfortunately they won’t be getting any.
Sony has made it abundantly clear they won’t be following in Microsoft’s footsteps — at least not right now. They have stated their will be PlayStation news, but about the games and PSVR, not the PS5. In a PlayStation blog post, Sony’s Gillen McAlister announced the PSVR would be spotlighted, which will include new game announcements and updates about the PSVR throughout the week.
There was a disclaimer within the post, reading: “this is all about the games. So to manage expectations, there’ll be no PS5-related news.” While Sony has already confirmed the current PSVR headset will work with the next-gen console, this disclaimer is likely pointing to the rumored second-gen PSVR.
Since Microsoft announced the most important details about the Xbox Series X and Series S, it’s only a matter of time before PlayStation releases their own price and launch date.
