The event was scheduled the same day as the memorial service for George Floyd.

 

Its only been postponed, I still think its likely that they'll do it by the end of the month.

It's the USA, not any small third world nation.

No way they could've gone through with the event under these circumstances.

 

People are so out of touch with reality. 

 

USA is massive and brings in big chunk of sales. The event was supposed to be grand and first major event for PlayStation 5. Given the situation in USA with both Covid and Floyd protest, this is a terrible time to celebrate. On top of that, June 4 is memorial service for Floyd. 

 

But why should people outside USA care? Well, you don't have to if you don't want to. You are free to ignore but at same time, SONY doesn't have to cater it for you at the moment either. Losing your sale isn't same as getting major backlash from one of the major selling country. That would be a terrible marketing. 

 

Also, PlayStation 5 is still launching as scheduled and you still have to wait for it. Event or no event.

Saw this comment on a forum and i agree with it , says "I mean I get why they are doing it. Not because Sony cares so much about this protest sh*t. But because the news will barely pick up PS5 because of it. So it's a marketing decision disguised as some moral choice."

The peak of coronavirus daily death didn’t stop M$ from going ahead & showing whatever they had to show (can’t call it a next gen reveal event)

 

So I doubt this would have scared Sony about the limelight 

 

It’s definitely the surge in violence that has kept them to put this on hold 

doesn’t look all nice hype stuff when ppl are looting & rioting stores 

Not really. Go on any social media and the protests are all you can see anywhere. They will definitely not get the engagement they're expecting.

Chill my goys.

 

They were just going to show games, not the console.

 

Mostly they would be the multi plats we know about, with one 30 sec teaser about whatever exclusive is being made for ps5

100%

If this was happening anywhere else in the world the event would have taken place. The funny part is they announced the event 3 days ago when the riots had already started , such a smart move:majesty:

Its not because of just riots but because his memorial ceremony is on same day. It would be incredibly tone deaf to have PS5 showcase event on the same day in a country where 60% of your base lives. MS will probably postpone its 11th June event as well, they're just slow to respond to these kind of things.

That's how marketing works. This is good PR. Care or not, it will reflect as good cause in media.

This is not the reason. If they weren’t prepared, they wouldn’t have announced a June 4th date to begin with 

 

 Canceling event over riots doesn't make sense. sh*t like this in common in America. Racist attacks will never stop there.

I don't buy their excuse to cancel the event over riots. Ppl die world over but Nobody cares about those lives but its US, so cancel everything.
