Sony can reveal first few PlayStation 5 games on June 3 in a digital event
Sony will reportedly won’t give away any essential information on its PS5 console.
Sony could be lifting the lid from its first set of PlayStation 5 (or PS5) games in the first week of June. The firm, as reported by Bloomberg, has not yet fixed a date for the digital event but may reveal something on June 3, 2020. While some titles might be revealed during the digital event by Sony, others might arrive in the coming days or weeks. However, Sony will reportedly won't give away any essential information on its PS5 console, as per the report.
For now, the Japanese tech firm has only revealed the PlayStation 5 controller to the public and the specification list of the console. However, it is yet to reveal how the product looks.
PS5 users will get the power of a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz (variable frequency) along with a custom AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based GPU. The console comes with 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units along with 16GB GDDR6 RAM and a custom 825GB SSD. This also seems to be one of the major changes in the PS5 as compared to PS4 that came with HDD and not a faster SDD.

With an Ultra HD Blu-Ray optical disk, the console is claimed to support up to 4K 120Hz video output, which brings it at par with the Xbox Series X. As for backwards compatibility, the Sony PS5 can run most of the PS4 titles.
The new DualSense controller now has a stormtrooper look and brings some major changes on the inside. There is haptic feedback that replaces the rumble tech seen (felt) on previous controllers and new adaptive triggers that can adjust the resistance for different gameplay effects. There is also an integrated microphone (a first for Sony controllers), a long-overdue USB-C port, a two-tone colour scheme and a more rounded shape to the grips and face buttons.
