The official event of presentation of SS5 it seems to finally have a date, set for June 3 according to several reliable sources, and contextually one also appeared list with a whopping 38 games out on the new console.
In short, in the end things are moving and we are sure that the enthusiasm of users will grow progressively in the days that separate us from the fateful moment in which Sony will show the world the design of PlayStation 5. In addition to the authors of the report, Jason Schreier and Takashi Mochizuki, there are indeed many sources confirming the PS5 presentation event next week.
There is more: we are not talking about a single appointment but about a series of presentations, in a manner similar to that planned by Microsoft for Xbox Series X, with one event every month until the console launch. Opportunities that will serve to reveal the features of the new platform and the titles that will accompany its launch.
In this regard, as mentioned at the beginning, a report also appeared at the same time as the report published by Bloomberg list of games coming to PS5. These are mostly cross-platform productions, which obviously means that we will also see them on the Xbox Series X, but they provide a fairly interesting picture of the support provided by third parties compared to the next-gen consoles.
