Sony’s “The Future of Gaming” PlayStation 5 online event has been rescheduled to June 11.
Sony confirmed last week that their show would be postponed in order to prevent them from taking the spotlight away from the recent protests against police violence and racism.
The PlayStation 5 event entitled “The Future of Gaming” was originally set to take place June 4 but in light of the current situation, they thought it would be better to postpone the event and allow the recent civil right protests to take centre stage.
Now Sony has announced that its first look into “the future of gaming”, will be taking place on June 11 at 1pm Pacific Time / 9pm BST. It’s been alluded to that this event will mainly focus on the games we can expect to see launching onto the PlayStation 5 console but hopefully, we might get a little more than that.
In a recent blogpost, Sid Shuman, Senior Director at SIE Content Communications assured players that since the event will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames per second the games won’t be showcased at their optimum level of performance.
He said “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,” the event will apparently be ran like this to ease “the show’s production process during a time when many of our team and developers are working from home”.
He also advised fans that its best to watch while wearing headphones, “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”, he proclaimed.
With the inclusion of the DualSense wireless controller in the event’s poster, we can only hope to get an actual look at some of the previously described features of the controller and how they will enhance gameplay. Whether or not this will be the case we will find out very soon.
