The Xbox Series S has finally been revealed in an official announcement by Microsoft, and thus officially came to an end to the worst kept secret in the gaming industry. Now it's Sony's turn.
The highly-anticipated Sony's next-gen console, PlayStation 5, is months away from its launch. We still don't know the official release date or the price for either PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition.
Today, Microsoft took their turn in this turn-based strategy game of Next-Gen Warfare and revealed its discless Xbox console to the gaming world, with a release date set for this November, at $299.
With Sony announcing a PS VR spotlight for this week, we had high hopes for something PS5 related, but they clearly said in their blog:
"PS VR spotlight kicks off today (Sept 7) at 3pm BST / 4pm CEST / 7am PST, and we’ll have further updates to share each day at the same time through to Friday.
And as mentioned, this is all about the games. So to manage expectations, there’ll be no PS5-related news."
"Those awaiting preorders and have Ryi. Please standby for updates.
PS5 have scheduled an announcement tomorrow so things are about to kick off this week. #Guildford

The tweet was deleted, but not fast enough. This could be the announcement for the rumoured mid-September PS5 event, for which already was a couple of rumours online.
As usual with this type of thing, consume with a grain of salt, as nothing is officially confirmed yet.
The PlayStation 5 is announced for a Holiday 2020 release, with several launch titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Bugsnax, and Godfall being confirmed. Demon's Souls Remake and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart could also be coming out within the console’s launch window.
