PlayStation 5 launching delayed: “We do not feel that right now is a time for celebration”

This time Sony will have to wait for the new order to launch its latest games console – PlayStation 5. This is due to the current civil turbulence in the United States. It is consequently considered as no appropriate time for the celebration of the new game console. Sony highlights this in these words: “We do not feel that right now is a time for celebration”.

The institution was all set to launch some of the games in development for its upcoming PlayStation 5 on Thursday. Rather it informs to the social media that “We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4”.

Sony describes the launching of its game console as “a look of the future of gaming on PlayStation 5”. However, game lovers will have to wait for some more days for this remarkable presentation.

A week ago, the United States has witnessed protests followed by the murder of a forty six year old man named George Floyd. She passed away in police custody as a white police officer knelt on his neck.

This has led to revolt among the citizens, hence not a proper time to promote games. Sony’s decision about the postponement has been highly appreciated. Samit Sarkar posted on his Tweeter wall, “Good – you’ll have to excuse me for not being in the mood for next-gen hype this week,” and Rachel Weber adds, “Well done Sony”.

Sony additionally tweeted “We denounce systemic racism and violence against the black community. We will continue to work towards a future marked by empathy and inclusion and stand with our black creators, players, employees, families and friends. #BlackLivesMatter”.

It should be noted that this civil unrest has put a full stop to other launchings as well. The US tech giant had to postpone its presentation of new features of the mobile operating system on Wednesday. A statement was issued, “Now is not the time to celebrate.”
