Today, at 1pm Pacific, See the Future of Gaming on PS5

Tune in June 11 at 1:00pm Pacific / 9:00pm BST.

Hi all – thanks for being patient and understanding while we rescheduled this PS5 event for Thursday, June 11 at 1pm Pacific Time / 9pm BST. We needed to step aside so key voices could be heard during this historic and important time. 

Now that the event is confirmed for June 11, I wanted to add that this 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’s also best if you watch while wearing headphones, if you can — there’s some cool audio work in the show, and it might be harder to appreciate if it’s pumped through your phone or laptop speakers. 

Anyway, enough talk! An updated version of Jim’s original post follows below. See you Thursday!


With each generation, from the first PlayStation to PlayStation 4, we aim higher and we push the boundaries further, to try and deliver better experiences for our community. This has been the mission of the PlayStation brand for more than 25 years. A mission I have been a part of nearly since the beginning.  

There are few things as exciting as the launch of a new console. While this road to launch has been a bit…different, we are as thrilled as ever to bring you with us on this journey to redefine the future of videogames.

We’ve shared technical specifications and shown you the new DualSense wireless controller. But what is a launch without games? 

That’s why I’m excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday. The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware. 

This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together. A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before. This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you. 

Please join us on Twitch or YouTube on June 11 at 1pm PDT / 9pm BST / 10pm CEST to see what’s in store for the next generation of games. I hope we can make you proud.

  • Would we be able to play old games like from the ps4 or the ps3 games to the ps5? Cause I want to play black ops 2 again

  • Please do bring it. Need a distraction, a fun, exciting and totally bonkers one.

  • 30 fps for the initial stream, right? This should be available in 2160p60 as a download or on YouTube right afterwards

    It’s a little silly if it’s @ a lower resolution and frame rate than what it will actually look like. Seems like a waste

    • yea its only beause of the stream, sure the gameplay will be 4k after the stream

    • I’d like an answer to this too, will the gameplay trailers be uploaded in 4k after the show? There was no 1080p 30fps announcement for the original June 4th event

    • I don’t think so, Sid says it’s due to challenges in production during these difficult times – source material is going to be 1080P/30 I reckon, the best we can hope for is a decent quality video after the typically degraded stream.

    • The unreal engine 5 demo was streamed in 1080 and released at 4k after the stream…and it still looked beautiful

    • The broadcast will be 1080/30, but the majority of trailers will be in 4K on YouTube after the show

    • No, it was produced in 1080@30fps, there won’t be a 4K Version of the stream at all.
      But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K!

      Most games on PS5 will be sub 4K and max 30 FPS anyways.
      If you want 4K@60FPS you need to go with XSX.

    • @TurkishFlavor Dude what you say? they put 1080p@ 30fps for a fluid livestream…

      They probbaly go upload the live in 4K@ 60fps…

    • @Sid Shuman Thanks man! That’s pretty much what I was meaning.

      Appreciate the reply! 🙂

    • Sony has confirmed on Twitter that the majority of trailers will be available on YouTube in 4k after the show. By doing so, they have also confirmed that Turkeyflavor is nothing but a troll, and a misinformed one at that.

  • please world dont do anything stupid

    • I’m a huge fan of Mark Cerny. So it pains me when they choose to make the company into a political platform. Think of professionalism and excellence.

    • @BLUNTMASTABTER: Agreed! They act like there is everything fine. True reason is they delayed the event to get the maximum attention. That’s it.

    • Compassion isn’t political. Common-sense decency isn’t political. Stop associating choices with politics just because some slobs in Washington have decided it’s political. It’s not.

      Delaying it a week was the right move at the time and harmed no one.

    • It was the right move, and if they had to do it a second time I’d still be okay with it. Smh at some of these comments; nothing ever improves with some people.

  • Games Only on PlayStation and nothing else

  • 4K 60fps streaming option will be added after the event.Right?

    • Yes it should be

    • No, it was produced in 1080@30fps. But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K.

      Most games on PS5 will be sub 4K anyways and max 30 FPS.

    • Can a moderator take Turkishflavor off the comments? He’s posted the same spam bs 4 or 5 times. Literally copy pasted, the same exact anti Sony rhetoric and Microsoft promotion.

    • Sony has confirmed on Twitter that the majority of trailers will be available on YouTube in 4k after the show. By doing so, they have also confirmed that Turkeyflavor is nothing but a troll, and a misinformed one at that.

  • No problem at all on the wait team. Can’t wait to see what you have to show us on Thursday!

  • Yeah, because now is everything fine in the US…not.

    Delay was just that you can get the maximum attention for the PS5. It was so obvious. You even announced the event when in the USA already were protests and anarchy.

    • And if they did it last week you’d be bitching that they were insensitive instead. People like you need to stop looking for things to complain about, its a very sad existence and the rest of us are tired of seeing it. Try bringing some positivity into your life, it’ll do you some good.

    • Everybody pressed pause last week, not just Sony. Everyone with any common sense knew it was just a breather and not some eternal stoppage until all of America’s problems are solved.

      I feel sorry for you if you’re always looking for the worst in people like this. Must be miserable.

  • You have a camera division, Can’t you tape in 4K 60fps? 1080p 30fps looks like crap.

    • because most kids understand these terms and how compression works……

    • It was produced in 1080@30fps. But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K.

    • found the xbox troll.

  • I hope to see Ape Escape or Ratchet & Clank or Sly Cooper or Infamous or just Knack III.

  • Great news! Where can I watch the presentation?

  • I hope this date will not be shifted again.. im happy anyway up up SONY!

  • Hopefully individual trailers will be uploaded @4K 60fps afterwards. If not, it’s a bit strange.

    • No, it was produced in 1080@30fps. But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K.

    • @LeMatster
      Most likely the trailers individually will be uploaded the res and framerate that the each company have made them in afterwards.

      @Turkishflavor
      Just stop spamming the same message. People get it you are an Xbox fan.
      You know nothing about the PS5 or XSX how they performs yet you keep copy/paste your message like your comments even mattered. PS they don’t lad.

    • Is there any moderation?

      Turkishflavor is spamming the same nonsense over and over.

    • Sony has confirmed on Twitter that the majority of trailers will be available on YouTube in 4k after the show. By doing so, they have also confirmed that Turkeyflavor is nothing but a troll, and a misinformed one at that.

  • ONE REQUEST:Please launch the PS5 as soon as possible. As a fan and as a gamer, THIS IS JUST A REQUEST!
    As a normal boy I want the ps5 to spend my time as my school has closed for vacations.
    Dear, Jim and Sony launch it!

  • I’m hype know I’m on hype train I hope show the PS5 and games but at least on one hour that good. Please don’t delayed it again please

  • You blew it when you wanted to bring virtue signalling and politics into it. By attempting to appease a population more interested in rioting, injuring, killing, destroying and stealing than actually partaking in civilized debate and protest.
    If there really was a civil rights case at the levels of black people being killed, they’d have to target themselves as ~87% of murders are at the hands of fellow black people… Butt let’s just blindly ignore facts, shall we?

    • none of what you said is true lmao keep lying idiot

    • white on white crime exist, ever watch dateline and snapped. Economic disparity causes different kinds of crime. White people kill each other for insurance payouts and because they want to be with someone else. Blacks do it because racism forces them in an environment where it becomes survival of the fittest. No human should be forced to survive by any means necessary. If the roles where reversed, how would white people survive. In the dark ages, trust me, they were not kind to each other. The current economic climate for blacks isn’t any different.

    • Imagine thinking decency is politics and virtue signaling and not just … decency.

      You show your true colors when you politicize compassion, and all you’ve done is embarrass yourself in front of people who have evolved where you stood still.

    • yes it was political, yes blacks vastly kill other blacks, yes the “protesters” are terrorist/arsonists. move outside the curated news bubble and nickel dime brainwashing.

    • Manchild in bubble tells me, a person who lives right where scores of peaceful protests happened right in front of my eyes, to leave my bubble. Okay, kid.

    • Yawn. JonTtrx please get some new material. Or maybe, don’t, and prioritize getting an education and some empathy first.

    • Child calls people manchild, ok kid. keep brainwashed and ignorant.

  • While I’m still excited for this event, I must admit that I’m quite surprised that it will be streamed at reduced video quality. I know these are difficult times, but you only get to make a first impression once and these opportunities only come around about once every 7 years. I would think PlayStation would find a way to make a 4k/60fps stream happen despite the challenge.

    The advanced notice is appreciated, though.

  • I can´t wait for this :D

  • THANK YOU for making it just after a week, can’t wait
    :))

  • I’m so excited for this! Yes!!

  • Thursday can’t come soon enough. I’m ready for the games.

  • Let’s go hyped so hyped

  • I am excited to see and now to hear the presentation by Sony.

    I reverberate all the sentiment of getting a true Blu-Ray quality release of the presentation out to all. Streaming in USA is equal to public bathrooms vs those amazing Japanese luxury toilets. USA 10MB/s vs JP 1GB/s bandwidth. Please provide an quick update on avenues to acquire a true Quality release of the presentation.

    -Thank you for the updated time and date as well as keeping us informed going forward.

  • Eagerly waiting for Thursday!!! PS5 is gonna ROCK!!!!!

  • You wrote “updated version” of Jim’s statement, but it still reads as “after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you”…

    Just dump everything, please. I want a teardown this week, please!!!

    thanks anyway! 😅

  • That’s great news

  • 2020 has been bad to us. Come on and press L1 (Even The Odds)

  • Will there be a 4k version after the stream?

  • Why don’t you upload the event in a video form in 4k 60fps instead live streaming it in 1080p 30fps. I don’t think this will give a good first impressions.

    • I agree that live stream usually don’t look gret. I always have to rewatch the non-live version to get a good understanding of the visuals.

      I guess they do live streams so that they don’t have to hand over their content to external parties to make sure that there are no leaks beforehand.

    • No, it was produced in 1080@30fps. But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K!

      Most games on PS5 will be sub 4K and max 30 FPS anyways.

    • They’ve announced that many of the gameplay videos will be uploaded in 4K despite what that Xbox fanboy is spewing everywhere in his sad attempt to misinform.

  • Can’t wait. Ready for the PS5. Hopefully we get a preorder link after too. Need that a new TV this holiday.

  • I hope the entire showcase will be available in 4K 60FPS after the live stream. 1080p 30FPS won’t really show next-gen properly, first impression will be quite bad.

    • It was produced in 1080@30fps. But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K!

  • Awesome! I can’t wait!

  • Broadcast in 1080p@30fps? Really doing the initial gameplay showing of the PS5 a disservice by not showing in 4k@60fps.

  • Allow the Playstation VR gun to work with regular shooters like BF5 and COD MW and you will transform the industry. I can’t believe we are still using the basic controller concept for decades…cmon man!!! Equalize the gaming field.

  • I really want the ps5 it’s very good but I want high security in this device because of the hackers or make a patch security update

  • Are you serious? 1080p on YouTube will be so blocky that we will barely recognize any text. What is the point of presenting something if you can’t see anything? Nobody cares if people faces were recorded on a laptop potato cam. The PS5’s feed should be in maximum physically possible quality. If I’d were your marketing director, the raw 4K footage would be available to download in exact same time and in 10 seconds half of the internet would have screenshots of it as their wallpapers, of T-shirts, painted in oil, exhibited in museums.

  • Awe YIIIIIIIiiiisssssssss It’s happening baby!!!!

  • Without much talk, it is to show gameplay and release date.

  • Are they revealing the console or the games?

  • Excuse my ignorance: where should we join you exactly? YouTube? Facebook? Both?

  • Cant wait to preorder already. Please have a link after to preorder.

  • People need to read this properly, this is not a live stream it’s pre taped which means they already filmed it already, it would of been good to have 4k at 60fps but 1080p at 30fps is what it is.

    • Yes, it was produced in 1080@30fps. But it doesn’t matter anyways, since PS5 is not that powerful, it couldn’t even run the UE5 Tech Demo at 4K!

    • They’ve announced that many of the gameplay videos will be uploaded in 4K despite what that Xbox fanboy is spewing everywhere in his sad attempt to misinform.

  • The initial showing at 1080p/30? Huge mistake!! You only get one chance to make a first impression. Who signed off on this? Isn’t there some executive with brains and foresight that can remedy this enormous misstep??!!

  • Looking forward to what will be revealed but I think it’s a mistake not to show it in 4k. Hopefully there will be an upload after the event. 👍🏽
