The presentation of the PlayStation 5, originally scheduled for June 4, will finally take place on June 11. That's in three days. The start time of the virtual conference is set at 10 p.m. (French time). The information is not official, but it's just like: it was revealed by an advertising insert on Twitch.
After Microsoft's rich presentation on the Xbox Series X, the world of video games (including players and journalists) had only one haste: to be able to compare the console with its rival, the PlayStation 5. Especially since the first appointment with the Sony console did not really please the impatience of the fans. We can even say that the technical conference on the customised SSD hard drive (very impressive anyway) has put more than one to sleep in front of their screen.

In mid-May, Jeffrey Grubb, an American journalist at Venturebeat, told the trade press that the presentation would take place on June 4. But the press conference was finally canceled, 48 hours before. It took a few days to get a new potential date. It would be Thursday, June 11.
See you online at 10 p.m.
The information was revealed by an advertising insert broadcast on Twitch, and then relayed on social networks by those who were the fastest. The tweet of one of them is below and the insert illustrates this article. On this insert, you can also find the address to follow this conference: Playstation.com/PS5. It couldn't be simpler.
If you go to this address, you will already find some small information and a form to receive business information in the future. You won't have to go to bed or hang out on Netflix, as the conference would start at 09:00 PM BST. Understand British Sumer Time. This equates to 22 hours in Paris (or CEST for Central European Sumer Time). So be careful not to get trapped by jet lag. As a reminder, the PlayStation 4 was first unveiled on February 20, 2013 in New York, before being fully shown at E3, in Los Angeles, in June of the same year.
