After delaying the initial PS5 reveal event due to the ongoing events (and in support of) surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement, Sony has this morning revealed that the event has been rescheduled for Friday, June 12 at 6am AEST.
The event will be broadcasted via Twitch and YouTube and has been pre-recorded in 1080p and 30 frames per second, a decision that made it easier for the team working from home. It’s a big day for the company, with the embargo for The Last of Us Part II ending at 5:01pm. You can read our thoughts then.
Please Sony Interactive Entertainment’s CEO Jim Ryan’s below words on what players can expect from Friday’s showing:
That’s why I’m excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday. The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware.
This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together. A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before. This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.
What are you hoping to see?
