It has been several hours since the rumor began to spread on the Net. After their tax assessment this month and this statement from Sony, announcing that the PS5 games will be presented "very soon". Then with the tweet from the famous Jason Schreier, who announced the date of June 3 a few days ago. It's now official, Sony is meeting us on Thursday June 4, 2020 at 10pm (French time) to discover the "future of video games".
PlayStation 5 – June 4, 2020
After the first speech in March which had disappointed many players, since Sony had really favored the "hardware" side, to seduce the developers (GDC conference requires), the players were waiting for a a real conference that would highlight the reasons why they are attached to the PlayStation brand … The games.
Sony will initially hyped the players by unveiling the DualSense, the famous new PlayStation controller that will accompany the PS5. Today, it's official, Sony is meeting us on Thursday, June 4 at 10 p.m. (French time) to reveal its future.
For the moment, no additional information. We only know it's a game-centric event, but we don't know if it will be launch games, games scheduled for later, and we also don't know if the console will (finally) be released at of this event. Likewise, we do not know either if this event will be in the form of a conference or if Sony will opt for a pre-recorded video as was the case for the State of Play of The Last Of Us Part.II or that of Ghost of Tsushima.
We also do not know if the firm will return to the different services (PS Now, PS +…) or if this moment of communication will be centered only on the “Entertainment” part with the games. Unlike Microsoft and the Inside Xbox in early May, we also don't know if Sony will show third-party games or First-Party games.
Either way, the conference is expected to last an hour, and will be broadcast on most PlayStation social networks. This will be followed of course on lemon squeezer.
