Suddenly! Sony has just officially announced that it will hold an online press conference at 1:00 PM (PDT) on June 4th, and will spend more than 1 hour “reviewing the game lineup of the next generation together”, and after the press conference, there will be more information will be shared with you one after another.
Although there will be no E3 game show in June this year, the major manufacturers will still hold several online release events, among which Sony’s event is particularly anticipated, is expected to disclose the PS5 debut game lineup, and even PlayStation 5 games will be exhibited.
Here is the PlayStation 5 launch event scope shared by Jim Ryan, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
From the first generation PlayStation to the PlayStation 4, each generation of our mainframe continues to push boundaries and challenge higher goals to deliver a better experience for our players. This has been the unchanging mission of the PlayStation brand for the past 25+ years, a mission I have been a part of since the early days.
Launching a new host is undoubtedly one of the most exciting things in the world. Although the road to release is slightly “different” this time, we are as excited as ever to join you on this journey to redefine the future of video games.
We’ve already covered the technical specifications of the new mainframe and showcased the new DualSense wireless controller. But how can launching a new host be without games!
I’m excited to share the good news that we’ll soon be able to give you a first look at the games that you’ll be playing when the PlayStation 5 goes on sale for the year-end holiday. The games coming to the PS5 platform are among the best in the industry and come from creative studios around the world. Every studio, regardless of size or history, is doing its best to develop games that can reflect the potential of the new host.
The full length of the online launch will be over an hour-long, and this is the first time we’ve felt the excitement together in a virtual format. The inability to hold offline events gives us a great opportunity to rethink and embark on a journey with you in a new way, even though we are far apart and close in heart. This is just part of our series of new PS5 information, with more to come after next week’s online launch.
We invite you to join us at 1:PM PDT to review the next generation’s game lineup. I hope you can be proud of me.– Said, Jim Ryan, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
