PS5 Reveal Event Will Have 4K Trailers Available After The Show
For its initial PS5 livestream, though, it will be broadcasted in 1080p and 30 frames per second.
After re-announcing the date for its PS5 reveal event, Sony's senior director of content communications, Sid Shuman, confirmed that 4K trailers from the livestream will be available after the show airs.
Shuman, in a reply to a comment on the PlayStation Blog, said that "the majority of trailers will be in 4K on YouTube after the show." This is significant because the livestream itself, which is set for this Thursday at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, will be broadcasted at 1080p and 30 frames per second. Sony had a reason for this visual downgrade, saying it "eased the show’s production process during a time when many of our team and developers are working from home." The company assured that the games shown off on June 11 will look "even better when you play them on PS5 with a 4K TV, as you'd expect."
It's unclear what Sony intends to unveil during the upcoming livestream, which is presently dubbed "The Future of Gaming." We may see PS5 games from some of Sony's first-party studios, a group of developers the company now calls PlayStation Studios. Apart from this, very little information on what we can expect from the PS5 livestream remains a mystery.
