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.

  • Postponing your biggest event in years so key voices could be heard… that’s the definition of class!

  • LETSSS GOOOOOOOOOO

  • *strums guitar*
    Huh?
    I couldn’t watch this under “SKIANBEERFIST”.
    So, I improvised…
    Worst case scenario…
    MBIALLSEEINGEYE…

  • Omg your new ps5 is going to be great for fortnite😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😂😂🙂🙂🙂🙂

  • I am hyped for something I won’t get

  • “Infinite Station Creation” *strums guitar * Sincerely, ONE FUTURE ROCK N ROLL USA PSYCHO

  • I really hope they announce the next Grand Theft Auto!

  • i am so existed

  • i am so existed

  • The games so far seem pretty underwhelming… hopefully there is a GOW 2 reveal or something soon

  • This is so lame, just show the console nobody cares about these nameless demos.

  • Only Kena and ratchet and clank interesting so far.

  • Hey when do I get my PlayStation

  • So far the in this June 11th announcement there are way too many kid games, and the more mature ones are not my genre or taste. So far I’m not impressed with initial games being developed for a next level game console that’s selling itself as revolutionizing the game world. Yes, graphics are A+++ but I won’t spend $500 plus $60/game for graphics only.

    • You do realize that there are kids that play games too? It wouldn’t be smart to only develop games for adults.

      Plus these are just only a few games instead of all of them being developed right now.

  • Bro the console looks so beautiful and futuristic, I’m gonna cry 😢😢😢
    Well done guys!

  • OMG, the playstation console needs a rebuild, like seriously I can just get my playstation and add some blue lights to it and it will look better than that. Come on Sony I had so much hope for you. But you ruined it, stop being new try to keep the design clean and elegant, not a figure 8.

    • The main problem with the design is how impractical it is.

      The top corners look pretty flimsy and it’s curved everywhere. Which looks like it means no horizontal orientation without a stand. Added to that white being a color that in lots of cases quickly looks not so great.

      Having fancy shapes is fine as long as it doesn’t impact the usability.

  • That is sexy as hell!!!
    Demons Souls as well!!!

  • Holy crap Sony that was worth the wait! I think that’s probably the best unveiling ever. Great job by everyone at Sony for putting this together. We saw games, the controller and the console. You have my pre-order Sony, great job! I’m looking forward to diving into the next gen and I won’t be looking back, fantastic showcase.

  • That design is a bit… odd… can it be placed horizontally? (the top and bottom seem curved)

    Also, is there going to be a black edition for those that don’t like how a big lump of white looks??

  • Playstation 5 is so good it made me pour the milk before my cereal.

  • i’m so happy about the games coming out for ps5 on this showcase,and i really love the design of the ps5.thank sony for the (again)really great product.

  • 4 gamers, they can take 5, not much to look forward 2

  • I just want to know if anyone else is having problems with the video i got sound but no picture so i stopped watching tryed again later it’s now nearly 3 and the video won’t load on psn or youtube

  • Wish we had a pre order live with release date also I would like to know the price. Still confused would need to think more about getting it with a disc drive or without.

  • Words alone cannot Express the excitement and impatience that I have for this console. Amazing presentation Sony!

  • Holy crap I guess we know why Sony doesn’t need E3 anymore!

  • ummm I only saw 1 usb port…. I hope theres at least 4. Also I hope youre (Capcom) not giving us another first person resident evil game if its not gonna have VR support (it didnt have a release date so Im hoping its a later release band will come out with PSVR2 hits, otherwise itll just be compatible with the current PSVR which would suck be be acceptable)… that was the best thing about RE7. Does a digital only PS5 mean backwards compatibility will be digital only (cant play your old discs) or does that mean anyone who wants the full use of BC will HAVE to buy the physical version (im gonna get the disc version just incase Im ever in a situation where I dont have internet to download games but itl be for “just in case” i never plan to actually use the disc drive just as I dont use the one on my ps4), and lastly looking at the camera design ummm hows that supposed to fit on top of a flat screen tv

  • Firstly the console looks amazing – I love it and can’t wait for horizon 2.
    Sadly that’s were it ends :( the first game you show is a 8 year old game that is barely played anymore by anyone then game after game of either odd, poorly made indie or childish looking games and remakes/remastered games. Nothing stood out to me as a “wow” moment that looked ground breaking or “the future”. Yes project athia looked good and so did horizon 2 and even that astronaut & little girl game but first person res evil what the hell is that all about?. godfall looked alright but unless it has something new and something that makes it different then it’s just another hack n slash warframe copy even co-op campaign might make it buyable (might). Then to end it all we get 2 mins of the actual console itself that’s all. I understand that you will release more info later but at the moment I think we all need something to really get our hearts racing with excitement and you didn’t deliver it today. I’m 37 and been a ps fan since day 1 so it saddens me to feel this way. Spider man looked as amazing as the last one but as with the last one I’m concerned looks is all it will have.

  • THIS NEW PS5 IS SO COOL

  • This event was amazing, arigatou!!!

  • Dear Playstation & good bye,

    I’m sure your not going to care about me as a customer & reasonable frustration I just want to share.

    IF THERE’S NO BACK WARD COMPATIBLY TO ALL PS GAMES, PS 1,2,3, 4 OR FREE TRANSFER TO PS5 CLOUD, NOT RE-BUYING GAMES! STORAGE MEMORY NOT OVER 1 TERABYTE. THEN I’M NOT BUYING ANYMORE CONSULT! I’M JUST GOING TO GIVE UP GAMING!!!! THANKS PLAYSTATION FOR NOT CARING ABOUT YOUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS LIKE ME SINCE PLAYSTATION 1!

  • Is there going to be vr on the ps5 or do we have to wait for a pro?

  • Not sure what they mean by “3D Audio” but hopefully PS5 will support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, otherwise it will be fairly useless as a 4k UHD bluray player.

  • I enjoyed the show. I’m a dedicated gamer and PlayStation generationer I have had and still currently own every home entertainment console. Please understand that what ever I say does not take away from me purchasing ps5. I assure you I’m buying this, I already started donating seamen and blood. I’m currently getting estimates on my spare parts as well just Incase. Now, I don’t like the design of the hardwear I do like most of the games and understand the world wants the classics so don’t end any of them. That begin said can’t wait for god of war and mk12 along side street fighter and of course COD. Please package my system now so I don’t have to wait as long I’m taking a 2 week vacation just to stand on line for this so I’d appreciate something nice For my life savings. Thank you again PlayStation for making my child hood great my school grades shabby and my adulthood filled with distractions need for a married man.

  • Congratulations with an amazing show.
    It looked processional, I loved to see the many wonderful people behind playstation like the developers. I like the huge range of games that where shown and I want to learn a lot more about them. I liked the transitions between the games as a pallet cleanser.
    I love how the new console looks and that I can set it on it’s side when it comes out the box.

    I hope we will get a deep dive on the console showing us how a game starts up, how fast it loads, the operating system and more. And I want to know a ton more about the games shown because most of them tickled my fancy>
    Thank you for being amazing.
