By Sean Carey,
Sony's PlayStation 5 Showcase was a big one. We finally got prices for both the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition, launch dates for both consoles, updates on games we already knew about, and a few surprise announcements too. The show only ran for about 40 minutes, but it was packed full of news. Here is a round-up of everything that happened last night if you missed it.

The rest of the world has to wait a week until November 19th to get their hands on a console. The PS5 is priced at $499/£449/€499, with the PS5 Digital Edition costing $399/£359/€399.
