PlayStation 5 Digital Reveal Event Has Been Postponed

Вторник, 09 Июн, 2020

Sony is clearly referenced to the death of the unarmed black man George Floyd in Minnesota.

The event, which was originally scheduled for Thursday, June 4, is being postponed to "allow more important voices to be heard" amid the chaos and heartbreak happening across the US.

According to Push Square, a PlayStation news site, numerous developers have commented on the PlayStation 5, with the vast majority heaping praise on Sony's next-gen console.

Taking to Twitter to announce the PlayStation 5 event delay, Sony said that that want to "stand back" as Black People fight against systematic racism, police brutality and white supremacy across the globe.

Electronic Arts Inc. also scrapped an event to introduce the Madden NFL 21 game that was set for Monday.

On somewhat of an aside, we would like to reiterate that we here at Shacknews also believe that Black Lives Matter.

As well as demonstrations around the US, CNN has listed numerous global protests that took place last weekend, including one in Dublin that drew thousands of demonstrators.

The PlayStation 5 is still scheduled to release some time this year during the holiday season.

No pre-orders are now available for the PlayStation 5, but Game and Currys are allowing people to register their interest through their websites to receive updates on the console as Sony prepares to release it.

Chances are the PS5 launch event was pre-recorded, so it could drop any time. 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. Sony Interactive Entertainment's CEO, Jim Ryan, said that the company believes there should be a difference between generations and that this difference extends to games.
