Via Jeff Grubb of Venturebeat, there will be a Sony event happening sometime in early June. Grubb said that the event was planned for Thursday, June 4th, but a reshuffle has nudged it back a little further. Furthermore, the June event is said to include a "significant" number of next-gen titles. Both events will focus on upcoming first-party and third-party titles for the PS5. We have already seen this with the console's new controller - which was revealed through the PlayStation Blog. Maybe don't go in expecting sequels to God Of War and Bloodborne, then.
And despite the lack of evidence that the console and its accompanying games exist, Sony is very confident that it'll succeed.More news: Calls for Dominic Cummings to resign after reports he broke lockdown rules
Moving to Microsoft's summer plans, Grubb confirmed Xbox's plan to host a first-party game showcase in early July and suggested the platform holder was preparing to host a hardware event in early June, possibly on the 9th or 10th.

KitGuru says: Are you excited for the PlayStation 5? Still, given that the window is closing, don't be surprised to see an influx of PlayStation 5 news in the coming weeks. "If you're on an English console, [you shouldn't] be taking space for French or Spanish audio files, things like that".
Sony has a lot of catching up to do with the Xbox Series X announcements because, at this point, the PS5 doesn't even seem real. Especially after Epic Games previewed a breathtaking Unreal Engine demo that provided a glimpse at the PS5's graphical potential. He added that it's "really exciting to be seeing the console market push forward the high-end PC market in this way".More news: Hertz Files for Bankruptcy Protection as Car Rentals Evaporate in Pandemic
