It looks like we’re finally going to learn more about the PlayStation 5, which is expected to be released during the 2020 holiday season. Sony’s PS5 may be on its way later this year, but we haven’t yet heard anything concrete from the company about the console. The only thing Sony has given so far is the internal configuration of the PS5 and the DualSense controller of the PS5. We are still waiting to receive more details, especially on PS5 games, and how they will look on the next generation of console.
New VentureBeat Report Says Sony plans event for June 3, which makes perfect sense, because it’s about the time when Sony would normally have held a conference at E3 for its PS5, the now canceled game event for the video game industry. The report says the information comes from sources familiar with the company’s plans.
At this time, we don’t know what Sony will show at the event, but we expect the company to withhold certain information for future revelations. In general, console manufacturers present the hardware and provide some specifications, then reveal the price and release date at a later date. This allows the company to anticipate and publicize as the release date approaches.
In addition, we expect to see a demonstration of games during the revelation of the PlayStation 5because Sony seems to be aware of the criticism Microsoft faced when it did not show enough games when the Xbox Series X was revealed.
Company CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said last week that the company will soon unveil a compelling line of PS5 games. It is very likely that June 3 is the date on which the company will present these games. After all, fans are disappointed with the revelation event of the gameplay from the Xbox X series from Microsoft. If Sony manages to present more AAA titles with real gameplay footage, this should be a good step forward.
An event not yet confirmed
We don’t expect the company to give a lot of information on the PS5 at this point. It’s unlikely that we’ll hear teasers about pricing or the launch schedule right now. However, a nice range of games with a few big names should suffice.
Note that the company has yet to officially announce the June 3 event, so take this information with a pinch of salt. However, we remain attentive to what is happening. Check back for more updates. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, these plans may change as all businesses have to be flexible to deal with the current state of the world.
