PlayStation 5 teases the Black Version for their upcoming Showcase Event, Sept 16

Sony just announced an upcoming showcase event next week for their next-gen console, PlayStation 5. Surprisingly, the promo image included in the announcement teases us the Black Version of the console, making us curious – if they changed their mind and include this variant during the launch this year.

UPDATE as of September 12, 2020 at 11:18PM: Unfortunately, the teases promo image is not a Black variant after all. It is just a shadow, we tried increasing the brightness in Photoshop and it shows the original white version.

Sony wants to give their fans one more look at some of the great games that will be coming to the PS5 launch. The digital showcase event will be lasts for about 40 minutes and features updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studious and their world-class development partners.

The event will be lived on Twitch or YouTube next week, Wednesday, September 16 at 1pm PDT. In the Philippines, that's Thursday, September 17 at 4:00AM (Manila, Philippine Time).


PS5 Inside the Box, Here's What You Get

The next-gen Playstation (PS5) are just few months away, but Sony is so secretive in showing details of their new console. Apparently, there are some careless distributor leaks some information of what's inside the box including its Model Number and a FREE base.

Twitter user Daniel Ahmed uploaded a photo (https://twitter.com/ZhugeEX/status/1304458398369538051) showing parts of some kind of a document, maybe a manual. It contains complete details of what are the contents of both PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition retail boxes would be.

PlayStation 5 Console Inside the Box

  • Model Number: CFI-1015A
  • Box Contents:
    • PlayStation 5 Console
    • Wireless controller
    • 825GB SSD
    • Base
    • HDMI cable
    • AC power cord
    • USB cable
    • Instruction manual
    • ASTRO's PLAYROOM (Pre-installed game. Console may need to be updated to the latest system software version. Internet connection required.)

PlayStation 5 Digital Edition Inside the Box

  • Model Number: CFI-1015B
  • Box Contents:

Both of the system contains the same content except for the console. It is also good thing to know that the storage are separate option from the console, which means it is not soldered in the system and it is replaceable with an aftermarket PCIe 4.0 SSD.

Unfortunately, other accessories like Headset, remote controller and HD camera are not included in the box.
