Sony has announced a special showcase event for the upcoming PlayStation 5. The event is set for September 16.

How to stream the PS5 showcase event?

Sony will broadcast a 40-minute "digital showcase" that will include updates from first-party Sony game studios and third-party partners.

The event starts 1 p.m. PT (1.30 am IST on September 17).

Fans can stream the event on PlayStation's Twitch and YouTube channels.

The console gaming community is eagerly awaiting Sony PlayStation 5 after Microsoft announced that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles will launch on November 10, at $499 and $299, respectively.

In terms of specifications, the PS5 will feature a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz and a custom GPU based on AMD's RDNA 2 architecture hardware that promises 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units clocked at 2.23GHz.

It will also have 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a custom 825GB SSD.

The PS5 will also feature 4K Blu-ray drive and will still support discs, but those games will still require installation to the internal SSD.
