Fans eager to know about the Playstation 5 may not need to wait too long, with a digital event rumoured for 3 June. As reported by Gematsu, this comes from a Bloomberg report by Jason Schreier and Takashi Mochizuki which says:
“The virtual event could be held June 3, though some people also cautioned that plans have been in flux and that the date may change.”
“Other PlayStation 5 events may follow in the coming weeks and months, and Sony is not expected to reveal every essential detail on the console during its first presentation.”
Adding in Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat’s story, he corroborates the 3 June date:
“While the June 3 reveal should provide the best look yet at the PS5, don’t expect Sony to give every detail about its next-gen system.”
“The company could withhold price and release timing for another date. The price for the PS5 is still especially subject to fluctuations. Sony wants to launch at a competitive price tag, but it also doesn’t want to take a loss on hardware.”
The focus is expected to be on next-gen games, with Sony wanting to showcase PS5 games that run on real hardware. In any case, we’ll stay tuned to see if the June Playstation 5 event does come to pass, or if it’ll be announced for later.
