2nd PlayStation 5 Reveal Event dated

Earlier this year, on January 6th, during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020), Sony held their own event revealing some announcements about PlayStation in general. During the event, Sony let out some information about the new PlayStation 5 console. On March 18th, Sony held their own livestream, intended for GDC 2020. The livestream was a deep dive of some of PlayStation 5’s specs. [Read here to see the recap of the event.] On April 7th, Sony revealed the PlayStation 5 Controller.

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.
