Originally scheduled for last week, the PS5 showcase that will be our first real look at what we can expect from the next generation console is scheduled to take place Friday 12th, 6am AEST.
According to their official post, this will be a taste of what to expect – but the games shown will look even better when played on a PS5 with a 4K TV, of course.
“Hi all – thanks for being patient and understanding while we rescheduled this PS5 event for Thursday, June 11 at 1pm Pacific Time / 9pm BST. We needed to step aside so key voices could be heard during this historic and important time.”
“Now that the event is confirmed for June 11, I wanted to add that this pre-taped program will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames per second. This eased the show’s production process during a time when many of our team and developers are working from home. The games you’ll see on Thursday will look even better when you play them on PS5 with a 4K TV, as you’d expect.”
“It’s also best if you watch while wearing headphones, if you can — there’s some cool audio work in the show, and it might be harder to appreciate if it’s pumped through your phone or laptop speakers.”
The event was delayed last week due to Black Lives Matter, and was just one of many digital events that was delayed to ensure that more important voices could be heard.
We don’t expect any firm details on the PS5 console itself, such as release date or price, at this stage. Xbox have also been quiet so far this month, with another Xbox 20/20 event supposedly taking place in the coming weeks. With the next generation looming, both companies are keeping their “big reveals” close to their chest.
Come back Friday morning for all the big news from the PS5 showcase event and tune in live this Saturday at 2pm for the big news on Checkpoint on JOY 94.9.
