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.

  • still no console, no preorder info, no price only reveal of games? wow, thats BS

  • So will we actually see the console too, yeah I want to see the games, but also the machine that actually plays the games. Getting abit bored of seeing crappy fan made concepts, I want to see the real thing, come on sony we’ve waited long enough time to deliver.

  • Will PSVR be compatible with PS5

  • Did the most important voices get heard?

  • Are you gonna have better fps

  • I just hope it’s all worth it in the end. Stay safe Sony.

  • I really hope that it’s better than the XBSX games reveal.

    I’m still mildly annoyed that Sony delayed this event in the first place and the absolutely disgusting reasons they did so but I can probably forgive them if what they show off on Thursday is awesome enough.

  • This time for real?…

  • With the fragile state our world is in it’s amazing to think there are still people trying to make it a better place. Despite dire circumstances. It brings peace to the mind not all is lost. Maybe only misplaced. Thank you Sony for making the world a little brighter.

  • So hype, waiting for this event since dual sense¡¡¡¡¡ so much expectations and feelings, Come on People from Playstation its time to Shine like a Sun¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

  • I would love to be selected to test out the new ps5 because I am excited about the next gen of playstation. I’ve been playing on the playstation consoles since I was a little kid (ps1,ps2,ps3, ps4 right now). I really hope that Sony will give me the chance to test out the new ps5 so I can give them the best feedback they require to keep their system at the utmost best software code they have in their system today 👍. I will always stay on playstation no matter what.

  • What new games you will be making for the Ps5

  • Been a fan of PlayStation since the original. With gaming progressing through multiple platforms, I find it very petty that Sony is the only company not allowing crossprogression. I understand some of this is also due to safety issues, but the other platforms allow it, so Sony needs to move forward. I have friends on both PS4 and PC. I enjoy, and utilize both platforms frequently (PlayStation exclusives are always worth it, imo). I refuse to support a company any longer that won’t allow crossprogression. Its going to hurt missing out on the exclusives, but I guess that’s what YouTube and Twitch is for. Until this is rectified, I will set my sights on Xbox. Happy gaming!

  • Just the games? When can we see the console? Makes me feel like Sony is hiding some kind of problem, or it looks terrible.

  • I can’t wait ! Sony, you have to reveal what you have in stores !

  • Oh dang! Can’t wait!!!

  • The original PS3 was 100% backwards compatible with PS1-2. It was and still is a beautiful console. Sony had the perfect opportunity to beat Xbox at their own game with PS5 and a return to 100% backwards compatibility. The PS3 cell has been emulated on PC for some years now. There is no excuse. At best we can expect some PS4 BC titles. Sony is disrespecting your past purchases, while Microsoft is honoring them.

    That said, I do look forward to playing new exclusive games on PS5, which are usually among the very best in gaming on any platform, but that’s it. For all non-exclusive titles, I’ll go with PC or Xbox next gen.

    • Microsoft only honours your past purchase if the 360 game isn’t one of the 80% of 360 games not available on 360 partial BC lol. And if an original Xbox game you have isn’t one of the 99% unplayable games on BC……. then also, good for you.

      Funny how people always leave this part out and pretend Xbone has full on 100% builtin in BC since always.

      Sony has a daunting task ahead of them getting over 4000 PS4 games running on PS5. Microsoft is actually lucky their developer/publisher support took a hit this gen because when you factor in all Xbone games AND the few 360 and original Xbox games, they have barely 2500 games to work with.

    • Just PC by the way. Just go with PC, you will never ever need an Xbox if you have the better PC.

      So to sum up, you are going to be another person that talks big and nonsense about Xbox being relevant, yet you are inevitably going to make another PlayStation console hit the 100 million milestone.

  • It’s about to go down.. y’all ain’t ready for the future… it’s a long time coming and soon the future will be in our hand… can’t wait.. please do not disappoint me…lol…jp… whatever happens I will still be a die-hard PlayStation fan… so let the games begin..

  • Iam very excited to watch and pls do release it fast and price of the ps5 should be cost efficient and also less cost Iam from India pls do consider my request..

  • Will the livestream be recorded and viewable after it airs?

  • kids whinging about the resolution, blame the terrorist out there and bad decisions on sony to stop the live event.

  • We will see….all I see is Sony stalling with this reveal.From what I here they cant figure out the design for this system yet and it has caused overheating issues…Sony wasnt ready for the beast Xbox is going to be…..all I keep seeing is stalling

  • As far as backwards compatibility goes, I guess I am just an old gamer, as long as it goes back to the PS4 that is fine. I have no interest going back to PS1 or PS 2 games. And I have a working PS 3.

  • Where am I supposed to tune into on Thursday ?

  • *on it*
    Huh?
    *strums guitar*
    While being on a hiatus(in process of moving)with a 77% work ethic compared to the usual 140%.
    Too sum thing’s up…*STRONG WORK ETHIC*

  • Y’all better not fail me!

  • since they talk about it been pre recorded and mention the games in the video wont look as good as the actual console. im starting to get unhyped. Im willing to bet thisll just be a games showcase with nothing about PS5s, price, release date or features.. you know the stuff we actually wanna know.

    • Think they were pretty clear about this being a “games” showcase.The system itself won’t be shown lol.

    • No but everyone is definitely hopeful that games isnt ALL. I mean its June and the console is supposed to come out this year. That’s in 6 months. When else could they reveal the console In price? During all those big gaming event’s were NOT having due to Covid? Also would they do all this “event” type set up just to show us a few game demos/trailers? They could put something like that on IGN

  • HYPE! I can’t wait to eat some pizza and enjoy the show with my cousin, im breaking Keto for this day.

  • Sid, we’re ready. Are you? Good luck everyone!

  • If they bring out Silent Hill, they will win.

  • I hope there’s an “Add to Calendar” button on your event posts. Or maybe I just can’t find it. :D Cheers! Stay safe everyone.

  • Ready to see what the ps5 look like

    • It’s a games showcase so unlikely they will show the machine.

    • @Naquadah, it indeed is a games showcase, but a “console showcase” cannot be held seperately now, can it?

      Showing the console is like a 2 minute task. They should show it…

  • Will ps4 games work for the ps5

  • Чекаємо не дочекаємось)

  • Hmm should’ve written “this thursday probably,maybe,possibly…” lol.Anyway let’s see what the unnecessary 5 is capable of,0 hype but curious about the tech on Sony games oh and Sony games that hopefully will remain on PS and not go to pc beggars afterwards.Heard some rumors that I hope it’s not true or else y’all will start this next gen wrong but hell aren’t y’all going the wrong path anyway?…haha.

    PS:Jesus the 4K who**s are overwhelming the gaming community.What a shame.

  • The Fifth Coming of Greatness Is Upon Us!

  • Nice. Now is more clear than last week that you are showing games,and not necesarily the console or sharing info about price or release date. “Just” games, and that’s cool (if we know in advance). :)

  • I have been a PlayStation fan for 6 years now and I love playing on my PS4 but im still not quite sure to get the PS5 when it comes out my question is; will all my data from PS4 be delivered to my PS5,if I get it?Or do I need to open a new PlayStation account and buy games?If anyone answers my question I would appreciate it a lot!

  • Can I watch this on my PS4? If so, how? And will I get the benefit of the audio from doing this as I have a sounbar?

  • MAN!!! I feel soo HYPED for the PS5!!! NEW SONY CONSOLES are always the best….

  • I love PlayStation.

  • Great. Hopefully the fact Sid stated that the show is broadcasted at 1080p and 30 frames per second will prevent any unnecessary comments about quality on various social media platforms.

  • Thanks for the heads up about wearing headphones! Looking forward to it!!

  • Exiting moments this week June 11 is so On¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

  • When the next handheld?

    PSVita released in 2012.

  • It’s hard to comment because haven’t touch it yet soooooo this is my comment

  • When will this be in stores

  • Will they be revealing the actual console itself since there is no E3 this year to reveal it at or will the console design be revealed later? I know there have been leaked images, but would like to see official Sony images. (:

  • Show us the machine!
