Its been really long time PlayStation communities haven't heard any updates on next gen PS5 console. Microsoft Phil Spencer has discussed soo much on Xbox Series X console till now and even tries to keep up to date with Xbox fans but nothing from Jim Ryan (SIE). Whats going on? and when can we expect any information on PS5? Will there reveal event in coming days on February? Any official confirmation on events? Lastly, the rumors about PlayStation 5 being delayed to March 2021 due to coronovirus can be resolved if Sony could decide to move their manufacturing products to outside of China like Vietnam or Brazil. I don't want any delay to happen. If any Push Square staff members are reading this forum, they have to pressurized Sony to at least notify PS community about reveal event.

I hear that some are frustrated. Me, I always thought that a release event in January, or even now, would be too soon.

Yes, that was the case in 2013, but a few things are different.

The most important being that the world of news has become faster. It's easier to get the word out, because more people are keeping up with the news online. That's why I believe Sony doesn't have to do a press event this early in the year, to maximize their effect.

Revealing only hurts current-gen sales. And if the PS5 is releasing in 2021, I believe Sony report on that as early as possible, because that's in their best interest.

And it's only a few people online that are worrying. A very small but vocal minority. Most gamers are not frustrated or tired of waiting at all. And even those now frustrated gamers, will quickly turnaround on the PS5 as soon as it's revealed. It's not like they're not going to buy it, because they had to wait longer than they wanted for its announcement.

So yes, I hear a lot of people complain about it. And yes, I wish I knew too, but what will it help Sony to announce the console earlier, because some fans are impatient? There's nothing to gain for them.

It happens whenever it happens. I expect(ed) at E3, so anytime sooner is a welcome surprise to me!

Sure I'm excited to hear more about the PS5 and what games it will have but I'm confident Sony know best when they feel it is the time let us know. While we had the initial reveal of the specs and controller in Feb and then the main reveal at E3 for the PS4 I am not convinced this will be the case this time round. I'm beginning to think there might be just one full reveal of the details and the games. Therefore I think it might not be until around E3, possibly after if they want Microsoft to jump first again with their date and price. I'd love to be wrong and hear something soon but like @Octane said it happens when it happens.

Wise words indeed @Kidfried.

Yeah not sure what the clamour is to have things announced. And we had the logo revealed not to long ago. What more do people want?

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@Octane Will it live up to the hype after two "near perfect" games?

@Octane Yes, the logo for Knack 3 would be good too.

Getting frustrated about it seems like a waste of energy. Sony already has their plans and knows what their going to do. Your frustration is not going to make the reveal event happen any sooner than they have already planned for. Just be patient and enjoy the games available to play now

It is what it is man. When Sony reveals, and they likely know when they will by now, it'll happen. It's kinda like asking "Are we there yet?" at this point. Just go off of what we have now and try to not get frustrated by rumors and enjoy some speculating.

Looking like the 'V' devkit could be the final design then 🤔

I don't see what the urgency is to be honest, it's ready when it's ready, if you rush this sort of thing, you only risk making a mess of it. Sony will have some very highly paid employees deciding on what the absolute optimum time is to reveal each bit of information.

@LieutenantFatman Agreed. It’s not gonna make the PS5 come sooner, I’m pretty certain I’m getting one and pre-ordering the moment I can. I’ll wait for a good reveal event. I think Sony will have some better idea from their highly paid employees the ones at MS that decided how the reveal the... SeX? That was terrible and confusing.

@Jaz007 And the muddled announcements afterwards, the no next gen exclusives for a year and call everything just Xbox. Make me think they are just throwing ideas in the air and seeing what comes down first.

@JohnnyShoulder Seems like they make no effort to control the "message" about their new Xbox. It's really strange they make no effort at making strong headlines in a time like this (with Sony being quiet and Nintendo having nothing on the way, while fans are eager for the next generation).

@JohnnyShoulder It’s like they leaned nothing XOne reveal about being clear and not weirdly confusing.

@JohnnyShoulder @Kidfried @Jaz007 it is rather confusing as to what the hell is going on, you would think MS would have looked at the disaster of the XB1 launch and the confusion Nintendo had around the Wii U and tried better
