Sony has moved the presentation of games to PS5 due to rallies in the US
We have been waiting for a long time when we will finally be shown games for PS5, but apparently we will have to wait further, since PlayStation announced that they are postponing their event with games for nextgen from June 4 indefinitely. The reason for this was the rallies in the United States. According to the PlayStation account, they are happy to show us what they have, but they feel that this is not the best time to celebrate. The company wants the voices of those who really need to be heard are heard.
For the same reason, EA canceled the Madden NFL 21 airing, saying that they will talk about American football later, and now they want people to focus on the problems of the African American community.
Recall that on May 25, African American George Floyd was detained by the police for trying to pay off with a fake $ 20 bill. During the arrest, the policeman knocked Floyd to the ground and stomped on his neck with a knee, and held him in this position for 10 minutes. Floyd tried with all his might to say that he was suffocating, but he was not listened to and in the end he died. His death sparked massive protests against racism throughout the United States, which escalated into conflicts with the police.
Obviously, many other upcoming gaming events may be rescheduled for the same reason.
