Sony cancels the PlayStation 5 show

The PlayStation 5 presentation announced a few days ago has been postponed to an unspecified date in the future. The reason for the change is riots and protests in the USA.

Chips? Are. Pepsi Cherry? Is. Sack of ice? Waiting in the freezer. Together with friends we were fully prepared for the presentation of PlayStation 5. On Thursday, June 4 the world was to see the upcoming Sony console, along with the first games to debut on the next generation platform. Unfortunately, no plans.

PlayStation 5 presentation canceled

Sony announced the cancellation of the show via PlayStation accounts on social media. The Japanese company argues its decision with current events in the United States, although it does not refer to them directly. The corporation issued a general message in which it draws attention to the current situation (editorial translation):

We decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 show scheduled for June 4. We understand that players around the world are excited about PS5 games, but we don’t feel like the right time for presentations right now. At this point, we prefer to wait, so that really important voices can be heard.
