Sony has announced a special stream to focus on the “future of gaming”. The stream will be our first real look at the company’s upcoming PlayStation 5, and will hopefully be aimed at igniting some hype in consumers. So far, Sony has revealed only the specifications and new DualSense controller for the PS5, without actually showing the console itself. So lets hope sony has something for us ready at the table and maybe at least gives us a taste of whats been cooking for years. They did however state this will be part of a series of PS5 updates to come, so they could be, oddly, saving the console reveal for a later date.
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. - Sony Via Playstation Blog
The reveal will take place on Thursday, June 4, at 1:00 PT.
According to Sony, this will be our first look at the game’s that we will be able to play when the PS5 launches later this year. The event will cover a host of games, from Triple-A effort to indie games.If Sony has been paying attention to the recent backlash received by Microsoft, we would assume you will get to see plenty of gameplay.
You can watch the event by tuning into the official PlayStation Youtube or Twitch channels.
Sony has been very loath to give out too much public information, and many of the devs who will be involved in the reveal were unsure when it would happen. We don’t know yet if we will see the hardware, and get our first look at the new console. While it is possible, we wouldn’t recommend that you hope too much.It is also highly unlikely that we will find out a release date, or a launch price, as both Sony and Microsoft seem to be locked in a game of chicken when it comes to revealing that information.
