After delaying the “the future of gaming” PS5 event last week, Sony announced that Playstation would stream the event this Thursday. The stream will run at 1080p 30fps on Youtube, but Sony has confirmed that all of the game trailer videos will be at 4k resolution. These sperate trailer videos (at 4k) will be released alongside the trailers (at 1080p) showcased during live-stream.

According to GamesRadar, Sid Shuman, SIE Content Communication’s senior director responded to a comment on the PlayStation blog by saying, “The broadcast will be [1080p and 30 frames per second], but the majority of trailers will be in 4K on YouTube after the show.”
He also revealed the reason why the live stream will only be 1080p 30fps. He said most of the technical staff and developers are working from home. It will be easier for the team to plan the stream at a lower resolution. He added that these games would look even better running on PS5 hardware at 4k screen.
The “Future of Gaming” PS5 event is one of the most important events for PS5. It may the first time people will actually see how the PS5 looks like if Sony ends up showing the console. Regardless, the exclusive launch titles will be the highlights of the show.
