In other news, the Sony PlayStation 5 games event that was originally scheduled to take place on June 4 will now be held on June 11. The event will showcase the upcoming gaming console’s capabilities with some gameplay footage and more. The Sony PS5 event was postponed from the original date of June 4 after the US protests picked up momentum following the murder of George Floyd.
The event will take place at 1:30 AM IST on June 12 which is a Friday for those watching the event in India. Leaks and reports suggest that Sony will not be sharing much about the console. But this PS5 event will deal more with the kind of games we can expect on the upcoming PS5 console. “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,” explains Jim Ryan, president, and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
