Is Sony bringing out a new gaming subscription service? The PS5 Showcase seems to say so.
It also revealed the PS Plus Collection.
But what is it, and how does it work?
What is PS Plus Collection?
Details are rather thin right now, but it looks like Sony is creating a gaming subscription service to rival Game Pass, which Microsoft offers to Xbox players.
What it might contain is anyone’s guess.
It could be a work-around for backwards compatibility, or playing games you own on disc on the digital-only PS5.
It could be a direct rival to Game Pass and feature third-party titles as well as Sony exclusives.
We are waiting for Sony to clarify this new entity. It looks like it will be landing at the same time as the PS5 itself though.
PS5 release date
Sony has taken the controversial step of having a staggered release date for the PS5.
Those in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea can get the PS5 from 12 November.
Those in the rest of the world, including Europe, will have to wait until 19 November.
The PS5 will be competitively priced at $499/£449 for the disc version, and $399/£359 for the digital-only.
That larger price is exactly the same as Microsoft is charging for the Xbox Series X.
