Because of this growing hype culture, it’s important for companies to be utterly transparent in their plans for what they have to show off.

According to the post above, Sony made it clear that there will be no “big” PS5 announcements, which means a possible price point and release date reveal won’t be included in the upcoming State of Play. The team also mentioned that they will be confusing heavily on this gen with PS4 and PSVR titles as well as third-party adventures and those delicious indie games!
