"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," Sony says.
Sony originally planned to hold this event last Thursday, June 4, but decided to postpone it "so key voices could be heard during this historic and important time."
The event will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames per second, though Sony says the games will look better on 4K TVs when they ship.
"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," Sony said.
Sony also recommends donning a pair of headphones during the event, as there is some "cool audio work in the show" that is apparently "hard to appreciate if it's pumped through your phone or laptop speakers." We assume a good set of computer speakers would do the audio justice as well.
