Any certain explanation from Sony or Microsoft about the date?
Sony can host a new event for PlayStation 5 on June 4. If the June 4 leak is not real, the company is expected to hold an event in mid-June. Sony is expected to elaborate on its many games and next-generation console PS5. Microsoft will show first-party games in July. More details have emerged about the Microsoft console so far. We even know that mass production of the console has already begun. The most important detail we do not know is the price.
