Reportedly, both companies are feeling pressured to reveal pricing information before August's end and are sitting on big game announcements. Here's Kinda Funny Games co-host Imran Khan saying as much on Thursday's episode of the gaming podcast:
"From what I've heard, they both have to talk about hardware this month, in terms of pricing, availability, blah blah blah. I've also heard that - I don't know if it's this month or later - but they both do have more software to show. So, whether they do it now or before the launch or even after the launch, they both have things that are gonna be like 'oh shit, I can't believe they're revealing that here.'
Khan went on to say that there's still more to be revealed about Sony's third-party support for PS5. A bit later in the conversation, co-host Tim Gettys suggests we've already seen Sony's hand on third-party support with games like Resident Evil 8 and Project Athia, but Khan disagrees. "There's more. They're holding onto some things that I'm really surprised they're holding onto, and I wouldn't be shocked if they showed them soon," he teased.
If the rumors are true, it's surreal to think we're so close to the launch of these next-gen consoles and yet we still don't know about potentially system-selling releases, not to mention how much the hardware costs.
