Everyone has been wanting to know when they can pre-order the PS5 and how much it’s going to cost. There’s rumours that the next-gen console’s cost has been lowered in response to the Xbox Series X, but hopefully we’ll get confirmation of the price tonight. People are asking when is the PS5 Showcase event on September 16th, and here you’ll discover its start time for PDT, EST, and BST zones.

There was a rumour a few days ago saying that the PlayStation 5 forecast was cut by four million due to chip woes, but Sony has reportedly said that they have not changed the production number. This is seemingly good news for everyone who is sweating on getting the next-gen machine on day one.

But, before anyone can sweat about beating the stampede of potential buyers, we first need to know the price and when we can pre-order. And below you’ll discover the start time for the PS5 Showcase event on September 16th in PDT, EST, and BST zones.

PS5 showcase rumours

Rumours for the PS5 Showcase event on September 16th include the reveal of Final Fantasy 16.

Other rumours and predictions for the PS5 Showcase event include Factions for The Last Of Us Part 2, and – of course – many are hoping to see the rumoured Silent Hill reboot.

All of the above are speculation and not confirmed by Sony, so don’t treat their appearances as gospel.

Per the PlayStation Blog, what Sony is officially planning to show is PlayStation 5 titles that will arrive at launch and beyond.

This suggests we will see more of Spider-Man Miles Morales, Godfall, and probably Ratchet and Clank despite its appearance at Gamescom.

Horizon Forbidden West is speculative at best, but hopefully we’ll see a titbit of it just to further whet our appetite for the 2021 sequel.

But, most importantly, hopefully the Showcase event will end with a price reveal and pre-order date as God knows we’ve waited long enough.

What is the PS5 Showcase event start time?

  • The start time for the PS5 Showcase event on September 16th is 13:00 PDT.

This means that the PS5 Showcase event will also start at the time of 16:00 EST and 21:00 BST on the very same day.

In regard to how long the showing will last, its duration is said to be 40-minutes.

Sony should have plenty of time to wow us with amazing gameplay, trailers, and – hopefully – reveals.

But, of course, we all want the Showcase to end with a price reveal and pre-order date in similar fashion to how Sony revealed what the PS5 actually looks like.

You can watch the Showcase live on either YouTube or Twitch.
