We weren't sure it was going to happen, but Sony didn't disappoint and revealed the price and release date during today's event. The standard PS5 console will run you $499 / £449 and the Digital Edition will cost $399 / £349 when they both release November 13. PS5 pre-orders go live September 17 though.

Final Fantasy 16 announcement 

The long-rumored Final Fantasy 16 finally got a full reveal today, with both gameplay footage and cinematics shown during the event. The game is titled Final Fantasy 16: Awakening, and it features a brand new cast of characters just like its predecessor, Final Fantasy 15. Check out the first trailer for Final Fantasy 16 above. 

God of War 2: Ragnarok 

Sony Santa Monica today dropped the mic with the reveal of God of War: Ragnarok, a sequel to 2018's God of War. And while we didn't get any gameplay - only the game's logo presumably - we did learn that God of War 2 is coming sometime in 2021, so it must be pretty far along in development already. Bring. It. On.

Spider-Man PS5: Miles Morales gameplay 

Insomniac and Sony revealed the first gameplay footage for the highly-anticipated Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which looks stunning running on the PS5. There was a good mix of gameplay and cinematics shown off, with an extended battle on a bridge being a particular highlight. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is launching on both PS4 and PS5 in 2020. 

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy announcement 

Hogwarts Legacy is a brand new Harry Potter RPG set in the 1800s, Sony revealed today. Obviously considering the time difference, you won't actually play as Harry Potter or any of his modern day pals. That said, it's still a Harry Potter game, so expect plenty of spell-casting and slaying. It's not confirmed just yet, but the trailer heavily suggested Hogwarts Legacy to be an open-world RPG permitting plenty of exploration.

Resident Evil Village trailer 

Capcom and Sony revealed a new trailer for Resident Evil Village today, and it gave us our clearest picture yet at the titular village and its horrifying inhabitants, which include a very unfriendly-looking woman. There's also a little fairy tale tidbit that's a little different from what you'd expect from the series. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gameplay and free alpha 

Today's PS5 showcase gave us our first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gameplay, but perhaps even more importantly the reveal of a free alpha for PS4 players starting this Friday, September 18. The title gets its full release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC November 13. 

Demon's Souls remake gameplay 

From Software fans got a little treat of their own during today's event with the first Demon's Souls remake gameplay trailer. Naturally, things look a lot better on PS5 than when the game first released in 2009, but it looks to have very much retained the spirit of the original game, with the sounds of weighty hacking uninterrupted by music or ambient noise. 

Deathloop release window announcement 

Dishonored studio Arkane announced today that their new game, an action-adventure titled Deathloop, is releasing late next spring. The news was revealed alongside a stylish new gameplay trailer revealing some new abilities you'll employ to down baddies. 

Oddworld Soulstorm 

A brand new trailer for Oddworld Soulstorm: Molluck Returns was seen during today's event, and it shows protagonist Abe exploring a number of different environments with a good mix of cinematics and gameplay. 

Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach trailer 

Today's event gave us our first look at Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach, a new entry in the prolific horror series. We haven't seen any gameplay footage or release date yet, but we know it's coming to PS5 and PS4 as a timed console exclusive, releasing on other platforms three months later. 

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition

The Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition was announced today as a PS5 launch title. The Special Edition uses the upgraded hardware in the PS5 to enhance the visuals with ray-tracing and achieve the coveted 4K/120fps, and it includes Dante's brother Vergil as a new playable character. There's also a new turbo mode that lets you play at 1.2x the usual speed.

Sony announced a brand new benefit for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and it's a pretty sweet deal. Basically, subscribers get a whole bunch of downloadable PS4 classics when the console launches. There's Uncharted 4, God of War, The Last of Us: Remastered, and a bunch more.

I'm GamesRadar's green tea-fueled, late-night news hound. I'm perpetually in search of an MMO to recapture the feeling of playing Ultima Online in the early 2000s, and I'm still sorting out self-esteem issues from being relegated to second player duties growing up with two older brothers. On a related note, I'm irrationally defensive of Luigi and his mansion.
