Last week, Sony was planning to stream their first look at PlayStation 5 on Thursday June 4, but delayed it so people could focus on the Black Lives Matter protests throughout the world. Today they announced that the presentation will take place on June 11 at 1:00 PM PST.
See you Thursday, June 11 at 1:00pm Pacific time (9:00pm BST) for a look at the future of gaming on #PS5: https://t.co/9XJkXYProo pic.twitter.com/8EoN34UPdd

The original PlayStation.Blog post has been updated with the new time along with some additional details about the stream.
“Now that the event is confirmed for June 11, I wanted to add that this pre-taped program will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames per second. 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.”
What could this cool audio work be? Guess we’ll have to find out this Thursday. The PlayStation 5 is set to launch this Holiday.
