The PS5 price and release date remain a mystery but the company is maintaining it will launch "this holiday", referring to around the December period in the US.

On Thursday morning, Sony will hold a roughly 40-minute showcase streamed on YouTube and Twitch, featuring "updates on the latest titles from [Sony Interactive Entertainment's] Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners", according to senior director of content communications Sid Shuman.

He said the showcase would "give you one more look at some of the great games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond)".

It's possible Sony will also release pricing and release information however Mr Shuman made no mention of it in his blog post.
