The event will launch at 4PM ET/1PM PT and on PlayStation 5, Sony promises "a glimpse at the future of gaming.” According to Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Digital Entertainment, it will run for "a little bit more than an hour," and feature "a first look at the games you'll be enjoying after PlayStation 5 releases this holiday."

"This multimedia exhibition will run for a little more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all feel the thrill together online together."

Recent reports suggested that Sony would hold a PS5 event on June 3rd a day earlier, with a focus on games. At this event, Sony is not expected to disclose every detail of the PS5 console, and there are rumors that further events are planned for the coming weeks and months. "This is part of our series of PS5 releases and, rest assured, we'll still have plenty to share with you after next week's showcase," Ryan says.

Sony has released specifications of PS5, a branding, and a new wireless controller for its next-gen console so far. Sony hasn't revealed the PS5 console itself yet, so it's unclear whether anything will change at the 4th gathering in June.

The PS5 will feature a modified 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz (variable frequency) and a new GPU built on AMD's RDNA 2 architecture technology, which offers 10.28 teraflops and 36 computing units clocked at 2.23GHz (also variable frequency).

The patented SSD is a major aspect of Sony's new PlayStation 5, and it offers 5.5GB/s output with 825GB of storage. Recently, Epic Games received a spectacular Incredible 5 engineering presentation running on the PS5, showing off the charging of 8 K video materials and complex lighting effects.
