After months fueled by speculations and crazy rumors, the PS5 was FINALLY REVEALED!
Yes, it was finally REVEALED and there must be a few people not knowing this by now, I mean the Internet is going NUTS as we all should.
Sony is raising the bar and setting new standards with GREAT reveals.
We saw a new ‘RATCHET AND CLANK’, a new chapter for ‘SPIDER-MAN’, ‘GRAND TURISMO 7’ was also revealed and the s*it is just getting started! ‘HITMAN 3’, the conclusion of the assassin-trilogy with the most ambitious setting yet – DUBAI!
If that does not impress you, then how about ‘RESIDENT EVIL VIII: VILLAGE’ or ‘DEMON’S SOUL’s’ Remake? AAAAAAND…. ‘HORIZON II: FORBIDDEN WEST’, which may be THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING EVER!
There is also a new IP from SQUARE ENIX and another published by BETHESDA and lots of fun games; ‘KENA: BIRDGE OF SPIRITS’, ‘LITTLE DEVIL INSIDE’ and MORE.
The PS5 design was revealed and it’s confirmed there’ll be two versions at launch; the traditional console BUT a DIGITAL VERSION aswell (see picture above). No price or exact release date announced yet, but we’ll get there. Even the UI was teased and I see no point in NOT BRINGING THAT UP, it will turn out fabulous.
It’s beautiful designed; looks fresh, modern and FUTURISTIC.
Here’s the full reveal stream, you’ll see everything broadcasted last night:
It may take me a couple of days to share all exciting footage and information with you as I want to take my time and write my thoughts on every single one. In the meantime, here’s a playlist that should cover these. Enjoy!
Sony’s PS5 reveal event was planned for June, 4th and was supposed to focus on the games.
However, due to the world-wide protests, it was postponed without any further notice.
Just hours ago, a new statement on Twitter appeared and the event will go live on Thursday, June 11 at 1:00pm Pacific time (9:00pm BST).
After months of speculations, nevertheless most intense in the past weeks, a PS5 reveal event was officially announced by Sony. It was scheduled for Thursday and a first look at the next generation Playstation games was confirmed.
However, due to the circumstances, it is now being postponed, as announced by Sony on Twitter:
During the past weeks, reports and rumors about a PlayStation 5 reveal event have been growing.
Sony has invited all of us to a PlayStation 5-dedicated ‘State of Play’- stream that will start at 10 PM CEST/ 9 PM BST on June 4.
This particular State of Play will focus on 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.”
The digital showcase will run a bit over one hour, so that’s exciting news! We will finally see some of the GAMES they’ve prepared for us.
We’re very likely TO NOT see the hardware yet, an exact release date (well, IT IS confirmed to launch this holiday, as quoted above) or price at this point. BUT, one must not despair. There’ll be more State of Play- events in the upcoming weeks and months, as Sony states that:
“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.”

PlayStation 5 officially confirmed
Unreal Engine 5 graphics running live on PS5
This is DualSense – the PlayStation 5 controller
Unreal Engine 5 was revealed two days ago with a real-time demo running live on PS5 and it’s just as jaw-dropping as you would dream of. Well, beyond that actually.
This is the future and I’m really excited about this guys. It might take a couple of years ’til we get there but we’re in for a threat!
Epic states that the goals for “this next generation is to achieve photorealism on par with movie CG and real life, and put it within practical reach of development teams of all sizes through highly productive tools and content libraries.”
This and more info about the new technology used to achieve this can be found on their blog:
THAT is the PlayStation 5 controller, titled DualSense, as presented yesterday on the PlayStation blog.
It’s still wireless and along the new features we’ll find “haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.”
Strong battery life, lighter in weight, no “Share” button (implemented first by Sony in DualShock 4 – the PlayStation 4’s controller), but a new “Create” button feature that is “once again pioneering new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy for themselves. We’ll have more details on this feature as we get closer to launch.”
Built-in microphone array and ” a two-toned design. Additionally, we changed the position of the light bar that will give it an extra pop. On DualShock 4, it sat on the top of the controller; now it sits at each side of the touch pad, giving it a slightly larger look and feel.”.
Sony said that they went “through several concepts and hundreds of mockups over the last few years”
The reveal ends with a message from SIE President & CEO Jim Ryan to the community where he mentions that: ” I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020.”.
No pricetag, a precise release date, console design nor launch line-up are known as of now and everything you’ll read regarding those around the web are merely speculations. There are online stores that have a price for pre-orders but remember that these are only placeholders. You’ll know the exact price when it’s official announced.
