Its PS5 event is now announced for Thursday, June 11, to follow at 10 p.m. with us in France. The announcement has not yet been made fully official, but our colleaguesIGN claim to have taken a screenshot from a Sony announcement on Twitch. Initially, the PS5 event was scheduled for June 4, but following social demands in the United States, the Japanese giant's plans were disrupted.
The company said: "We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4. While we understand that players around the world are excited to see PS5 games, we don't think the time is right to party and right now we want to step back and allow more important voices to be heard.

What to expect at the PS5 event?
Even today, the gamers ask the question of the program for this PS5 event Most expect Sony to present a presentation of the console's design in addition to a revelation of the console's prices. On the other hand, it is more announced that this event is the occasion to lift the veil on the available games, information which will ultimately be the most important for video game players. Earlier this year, President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan said, " I’m happy to announce that we’ll be giving you a first glimpse of the games you’ll be playing after the launch of PlayStation 5 for the holiday season. ”
Two months ago, Sony presented its new controller "DualSense" without warning, so it could be that this marketing strategy is renewed for the real presentation of the console. It remains to be seen whether this controller succeeds in dethroning the "DualShock 4" presented with the PlayStation 4 in 2013, which so far is considered to be the best controller in the history of PlayStation for players and developers.
Here's what Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment said: “DualSense marks a radical change from our previous controller offerings and shows how confident we are to take a generational leap with PS5. The new controller, along with the many innovative features of the PS5, will be transformative for gaming – continuing our mission on PlayStation to push the limits of the game now and into the future. To the PlayStation community, I really want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head towards the launch of the PS5 at the end of 2020. We look forward to sharing more information on the PS5, including the design of the console, in the coming months. "
