Selected Japanese YouTube content creators live streamed PlayStation 5 gameplay on Sunday, October 4, and you can watch all the videos on this page.
More than ten channels streamed PS5 content as part of YouTube Gaming Week, a YouTube-sponsored festival which has run for the past week.
Most channels streamed Astro’s Playroom, the demo title included with PS5 and designed to show off the various features of its DualSense controller. American journalist Geoff Keighley already streamed Astro gameplay back in July.
It’s unclear when Western creators or media will get their hands on PlayStation 5, but with the console’s release barely a month away, it’s likely to be soon.
The rest of the world will get the console a week later on November 19, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.
PS5 will be priced at $500/€500/£450 for the standard edition and $400/€400/£360 for the Digital Edition, with the only difference between them being the former’s inclusion of a disc drive.
Multiple retailers sold out of PS5 pre-orders just hours after launch details were announced on September 16, despite Sony telling fans that pre-sales for the console would begin the following day.
PlayStation subsequently apologised for the troubled PS5 pre-order launch and promised to release more consoles to retailers imminently.
Selected retailers opened a second wave of PS5 pre-orders on September 25 which also sold out quickly.
Amazon has also warned some PS5 pre-order customers that they may not receive their console on the day of release.
