PS5 Showcase Coming Soon, Report Says

The PlayStation Showcase could take place the week of May 25.


A PlayStation Showcase event is coming the week of May 25, according to reporter Jeff Grubb of GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb.

Of course, plans can always change, but Grubb said this is accurate as of now. Another person, Zuby Tech, said on Twitter, said the event should happen on May 25 or June 1. Officially, Sony has not made any announcements. GameSpot has contacted the company in an attempt to get more details.

This has been rumor for months. Grubb reported in February that a big PlayStation event would happen before June. At the time, the report said this event would happen in the lead-up to E3 2023. That show is now canceled, but summertime gaming events are going ahead regardless.

If the PlayStation Showcase is real, it would take place before a bunch of big events in June like Summer Game Fest, the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct from Microsoft, Ubisoft Forward, and Gamescom Opening Night Live, among other events.

PlayStation's next big game is Marvel's Spider-Man 2, which is rumored to release in September.

The PlayStation brand is soaring at the moment. PS5 sales have climbed to more than 38 million through March 31. The 6.3 million units sold during the January-March period represents the most consoles than any company has ever shipped in a January-March quarter, beating all figures from past PlayStation consoles, as well as Xbox and Nintendo.
