PS5 Showcase — Where to Watch Today's Next-Gen PlayStation Event
The PS5 Showcase kicks off at 4:00pm EDT and here are all of the places in which you can tune-in to watch the event for yourself.
In just about an hour, Sony is finally set to break its silence. No more talking about current-generation games for PS4, no more showing off what it has in store for the future of PlayStation VR, and no more requests from Mark Cerny for pictures of your ears — it’s time to finally see more of the PS5.
With what will be PlayStation’s biggest event for the PS5 since June, today’s showcase is said to be around 40-minutes in length and is said to highlight a number of different games coming to the platform. Not only are rumors swirling about new looks at titles like Demon’s Souls, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and even Final Fantasy XVI, but Sony says this will also be the final major look we’re given at the platform before it launches later this year. With that in mind, it’s sure to be a huge event.
So, if you’re reading this article, you’re surely wondering, “Where the heck can I watch this shindig for myself?” Well, don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered when it comes to all the different places in which you can tune in.
Of course, the main locale in which many will probably watch today’s PS5 stream will be over on YouTube. PlayStation is premiering the showcase on all of its various regional channels, but the main one in which many will likely tune-in comes from the brand’s primary channel. If the viewership on YouTube is anything like the last PS5 event that Sony held, there should be hundreds of thousands of people watching along in this same venue.
You can find the English version of the stream embedded above, but if you’d like to watch the presentation in a different language, just scroll the many different live feed options on the PlayStation channel and you should be able to find the one that is best for you.
For those that don’t enjoy using YouTube, PlayStation is also going to be streaming the PS5 Showcase on its official Twitch channel. Compared to YouTube, Twitch is typically well-known for having less of a delay between the stream itself and its viewability on our end. So if you want to see all of today’s announcements related to the PS5 as fast as humanly possible, Twitch might be best for you.
As of this publishing, PlayStation hasn’t gone live over on Twitch yet so we can’t embed the stream itself in this article. That being said, you can head over to their channel by clicking right here.
Last but certainly not least, if you’d like to watch today’s PS5 Showcase alongside some friendly faces, we here at DualShockers will be co-streaming the event over on our own YouTube channel. This is something we’ve been doing a lot more of over the past few months and, at least in my own opinion, it has made these large-scale gaming events that much more enjoyable.
So if you’d like to not only see what Sony has up its sleeve with the PS5 but would also like to hear some additional commentary regarding the announcements, you can join Mario Rivera, Cameron Hawkins, Peter Hunt Szptek, Nick Blain, and friend of the site Frank Villagomez to hear what they think about the showing.
