Sony’s postponed PS5 event will now take place on June 11th

Possibly a console reveal?

Sony’s upcoming PS5 event was supposed to happen last June 4th but was immediately postponed because of the ongoing protests in the US and around the world. The event has now been confirmed to take place on Thursday at 4 PM ET – which will be Friday 12 AM UAE time.

The hour-long presentation will dive into the games that will be released on the PS5, though it wasn’t entirely confirmed how the console itself will look like. Sony revealed the DualSense 5 controller for the PS5 a few months ago.

Sid Shuman, Senior Director, SIE Content Communications said in a blog post that the pre-taped program will be broadcast at 1080p 30fps – probably the best way to showcase the games. But it was emphasized that the games will look far better when played on the real PS5 on a 4K TV.

Additionally, it has been recommended that you watch the broadcast using headphones since there is some ‘cool audio work’ that might point to the new audio system being implemented on the PS5.

While we still don’t have a look at the real console, the PS5’s hardware is now confirmed to run on a custom AMD Zen 2 CPU with a custom AMD RDNA 2-based GPU. There’s 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a proprietary SSD storage.
