Sony’s livestream could put to rest speculation on how it looks, what it will pack and more.

The blog is the official channel for all of PlayStation’s latest announcements including new release dates, indie game spotlights, PlayStations Plus Free Games for the month, and more.

It’s unknown how long the broadcast will be, but you can expect it to start at 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST / 4 pm GMT and continue until they’ve ran through their full PS5 reveal.

What to expect in the PS5 reveal?

 

PS5 lead system architect Mark Cerny will be providing more information on the upcoming console’s build and structure.

It’s likely that he’ll show an in-depth view of the PlayStation 5, almost a year after a Wired interview in which Cerney first talked about the new console.

The Wired article began: “Mark Cerny would like to get one thing out of the way right now: The video game console that Sony has spent the past four years building is no mere upgrade.”

Now it’s time for Sony to ‘wow’ the market again with what they are confident will not only compete but surpass the already impressive specs known about respected rivals Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, formerly known as Project Scarlett.

Xbox’s next-gen console will have 16GB GDDR6 memory, 120 fps support, a 1TB custom NVMe SSD, and a string of impressive letters and numbers that are used to describe its GPU and CPU. That’s not including the 8k resolution support and Ray Tracing already linked to the console.

The industry and fans alike will be excited to see what features Sony will come out with to beat that. Also considering that there’s been talk of possible backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 4.

PlayStation told Famitsu, translated by BlackKite: “Currently, the dev team is putting all power on verifying whether they can secure a complete compatibility. Please wait for more information.”

A release of Holidays 2020 will put it on a collision course with the next Xbox, so you can bet Sony is aiming to impress with this livestream.

Super Smash Bros Melee introduced many playable fan-favorite stages such as Final Destination and Battlefield, though none may be more infamous than Hyrule Temple. Now, a fan has recreated the Zelda stage within Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.

Hyrule Temple is an absolute blast to play in a casual setting as it’s one of the largest stages in the game and has five sections for players to battle in – three on the upper area, and two on the lower.

Due to the stage’s layout and Smash’s casual scene consisting of items and multi-player brawls, it’s really the perfect battleground for chaos to ensue.

As it turns out, Hyrule Temple isn’t just a good Zelda-inspired Smash stage. It also makes for a pretty unique map in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

Hyrule Temple has appeared in other Smash games since Melee.

Redditor Skramblez took to the popular site to share their recreation with the world. In a post titled “I recreated Hyrule Temple in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2,” the gamer showed off the map in a video accompanied by Zelda music.

As you can see in the video, the stage’s sections are split into their own variants of a skate park. Some of the smaller paths are replaced by rails for skaters to grind on, and there’s plenty of gaps to clear.

The edges of the stage are replaced with ramps, so you shouldn’t be flying off the stage like you’ve still taken a Ganondorf F-Smash at a high percentage.

As a nice touch, and sticking with the Zelda lore, Skramblez even made the character look a bit like Link – at least the most Link-like the skateboarding game could allow for.

Instead of a green tunic, the player has a green hoodie. Instead of the green cap, it’s a beanie. However, the character does have long blonde hair, just like the Hero of Time.

According to Skramblez, it took fifteen hours to make the map. “The park editor’s not the most intuitive, but you can do a lot once you get used to it,” they explained.
