After some speculation in the technology industry, Sony has officially confirmed that the PlayStation 5 event will be hosted next week on Thursday, 4 June. The event is scheduled to start at 4:00 PM ET and the company is promising to give us a “look at the future of gaming at PlayStation 5.”
Sony has also revealed that the PlayStation 5 event will last more than an hour and will give us a look at “the games you ‘re going to play after PlayStation 5 starts this holiday.” So, it’s confirmed that the company will be showing off some of the games coming to the PS5 at this event.
As reported, Sony is not expected to reveal details about the next generation gaming console. However, the company is expected to hold a few more such events in the coming weeks and months, leading to the official launch of PlayStation 5.
So far, the Japanese company has unveiled the PS5 logo, some of its specifications, and a new wireless controller that will be bundled with the console. But the company has yet to showcase the gaming console itself, and it remains to be seen whether this will change with the upcoming event next week.
The company confirmed that the PS5 includes AMD hardware with a Zen 2 CPU and Navi GPU, a super-fast PCIe 4.0 SSD and a new data transfer architecture. The DualSense gamepad has motorized triggers that can provide variable resistance depending on the in-game context and has modern haptics that allow players to “feel” games.
