SONY’S JUNE 4 PS5 EVENT POSTPONED DUE TO RIOT SCENARIO IN USA
After the execution of African-American citizen George Floyd, carried out by a Minneapolis police officer, plus the ensuing protests and rallies across the United States and around the world demanding racial justice, the current political-social scenario of the United States is apparently the root of the decision made by Sony and PlayStation: to indefinitely postpone the presentation event for the PS5 scheduled for this June 4th.
Per Sony’s Twitter publication, “We prefer to stay on the sidelines and allow other more important voices to be heard. We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event set for June 4. We understand that gamers around the world are looking forward to seeing the ps5 games but we think this is not an appropriate time for celebrations and for now, we prefer to stay on the sidelines and allow other more important voices to be heard.”
After the Japanese company communicated they did not consider the moment appropriate for celebrations, it did not set forth a new presentation date for the first exclusive games for the new console; all in all, the pandemic unleashed by the coronavirus is also an underlying factor (plus the protests and riots following the death of George Floyd) for making the scenario anything but adequate for videogame and technology events.
