Recently, Sony confirmed in a blog post that the upcoming PS5 event is will be held on June 11 at 1 pm Pacific time/9 pm BST. Sony initially planned to stream the event on June 4; however, to show its support to people who are taking a stand for equality and justice, Sony delayed the event.
Sony Interactive CEO, Jim Ryan, said in the blogpost that the event would last for about an hour. The event will give us the first look at the games we’ll be playing on the PlayStation 5 console, which will launch later this year.
The event’s presentation is already pre-recorded and will be streamed at 1080p and 30fps. Sony decided to stream the event at a lower quality to ease the production process. That is because the entire Sony team is working from home due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
According to the blogpost, 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. “
Sony recommends the viewers to watch the event while wearing headphones. That is because Sony planned some cool audio work in the show, probably to show the 3D audio capabilities of PS5. So, it will be hard for the viewers to appreciate the sound if it’s pumped through their phone or laptop’s speakers.
