PS5 event date, time

The PS5 reveal event starts at 4 p.m. Eastern| 1 p.m. Pacific | 9 p.m. GMT today (June 11).

Months of waiting have built to this moment: it's almost time to watch the big PS5 reveal event. 

Titled "The Future of Gaming," the PS5 reveal event is loosely defined, giving everyone a chance to get their hopes up for something slightly different. Fortunately, we've been keeping our eyes on the market and have figured out what to expect.

The biggest thing we expect isn't even the console: it's the games (and hopefully how we play them). As we went over in our PS5 June 11 event preview, we'd bet on news about PS5 games from third-party and independent developers. There could be some exclusives, but don't expect an official design, price or release date just yet. 

As predictably frustrating as it will be for many who will grouse online about Sony teasing out the PS5's look, Sony's given us reason to not expect it. The blog post where Sony announced the event is focused entirely on the video games coming to the PS5. 

We hope that Sony makes the console's absence easier to swallow by revealing some exclusive PS5 games. Here's everything you need to watch the event live.
