While this week has been big for next-gen Xbox news (even if Microsoft didn’t actually intend to announce it this week), Sony has made it clear that they will not be following suit–at least not immediately. While there will be new PlayStation news, Sony has promised it will be about the games and the PSVR, not the new console.
Earlier this week, a reputable leak revealed the long-rumored Xbox Series S, along with a price of $299 and a November 10 release date. The leak led Microsoft to spill the beans, confirming those details were correct and officially launching the Xbox Series S. The leak suggested the Series X would also release on November 10, with a price of $499, though those details haven’t yet been confirmed by Microsoft.
Anyone expecting Sony to immediately follow suit with their pricing and release date for the PS5 will be sorely disappointed, however. In a post on the PlayStation blog, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Gillen McAlister announced a PSVR spotlight, which would include new game announcements and updates focused on the PSVR throughout the week.
