PS5 News: Will the next PlayStation console be revealed at PlayStation Experience?

The PlayStation Experience event has commenced and speculators are expecting some big announcements including a possible PS5 reveal. Here's an overview of what you need to know.

Sony's Playstation 5 will be made available at the end of the year however it hasn't yet been revealed to the public.

Most people in the games industry would expect the reveal of the PS5 to have taken place at E3 however Sony have announced they won't be attending the premier gaming convention for a second year running.

Their statement read: "“After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020. We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year.”

Instead, it seems Sony and the PlayStation team have decided to place more importance on their own offering called "Experience PlayStation".

 

Taking place in New York, Experience PlayStation (also known as PSX) is an annual event open to the public used to present, reveal and advertise PlayStation Games and related merchandise. 

The event began yesterday and will run all the way until Febuary 16th, 2020. So far we haven't had any indication we'll see Sony reveal the PS5 at this event other than a few rumours that hinted we'll see a reveal in early February.

This rumoured date would mean they would make the announcement during the final week of the event which is entirely feasable.
