Sony reschedules PS5 event to June 11, to show gameplay and ‘cool’ audio work
The event is supposed to begin at 1PM Pacific time (June 12, 1.30am IST).
Late last month, Sony announced that it will showcase the first set of games that will be coming to PS5 or PlayStation 5 on June 4. It was also supposed to show the gameplay on the forthcoming console. However, in the light of recent protest after the George Floyd murder case and racism, the Japanese tech firm indefinitely postponed the date of the online event. Now, it has finally unveiled the new date when it will hold the online event for PS5 titles - June 11. The event is supposed to begin at 1PM Pacific time (June 12, 1.30am IST).
Sony, in its blog has confirmed that the pre-taped program will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames per second. “This eased the show's production process during a time when many of our team and developers are working from home. The games you'll see on Thursday will look even better when you play them on PS5 with a 4K TV, as you'd expect,” it added.
The firm also recommends viewers to watch the video wearing headphones there there is a ‘cool audio work' in the show as well “and it might be harder to appreciate if it's pumped through your phone or laptop speakers.”
Sony is yet to unveil the PS5 console, something which rival Microsoft has already done for the Xbox Series X. It has revealed the key specs for the console which include a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz (variable frequency) paired with a custom AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based GPU.
The console will be also equipped with 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units along with 16GB GDDR6 RAM and a custom 825GB SSD.
