Sony was set to formally unveil its take on the ‘Future of Gaming’ with a brand new look at the upcoming PlayStation 5 on June 4, but it was postponed. A leak seemingly confirms the rescheduled date.

In lieu of a traditional breakdown at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Sony was due to push forward with its own livestream event on June 4. It’s during this 60+ minute show that many developers will also lift the lid on their first next-gen titles. Due to current world events, the company delayed the broadcast with no new date announced, but a new leak could confirm when it’s been moved to.

From global start times to specific details, here’s a rundown on every detail surrounding Sony’s upcoming PS5 broadcast.

How to watch the PS5 ‘Future of Gaming’ event

On June 8, Sony confirmed that the livestream will kick off at 1PM PDT / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST on Thursday, June 11.

The broadcast is expected to run a “bit more than an hour” according to the latest from Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan.

Now that the new date has been confirmed, viewers from around the world can tune in to PlayStation’s official YouTube channel and Twitch stream on the day of, which we’ve embedded below.

The lengthy broadcast will provide a “first look” at next-gen titles from plenty of renowned developers. However, some of the games on display throughout the event may not be launch titles.

Sony is preparing to unveil games of all size and scope, from “larger” AAA developers to “smaller” indie publishers. Expect a wide assortment of unique reveals.

This livestream might not be the right time for confirmation on a launch price or release date. As the Future of Gaming livestream appears to be solely focused on the games themselves.

Could this event provide our first look at the sequel to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn?

Specifications are already out in the wild too. The DualSense controller was revealed on April 8. The next step is clearly to focus on PS5 games at launch and into the future.

From Sony’s 14 first-party studios such as Insomniac Games, to countless third-party studios around the globe, many next-gen games will finally be unveiled. The wait is on!

Pokemon Go players flame “trash” 7km eggs as big problem found

Pokemon Go players are complaining that the 7km eggs are not worth hatching as they constantly contain the same species of Pokemon.

Pokemon Eggs are an iconic aspect of the franchise and Pokemon Go itself. The eggs come in five different rarities and each has a chance at hatching a range of different Pokemon, some of which are rarer than others.

However, in order to hatch these eggs players need to walk a certain number of kilometers that is determined by the rarity of the egg. Of course, this means hatching eggs can be a lot of work so players expect to be rewarded accordingly.

Well, members of the community are complaining about the 7km eggs specifically, stating that they’re simply not worth doing in the current state.

Niantic
Each type of Pokemon Go egg has a hatch table of potential Pokemon.

Does Pokemon Go have an egg problem?

A Reddit thread posted to the pokemongo subreddit calling a part of the game’s current egg system “trash” has skyrocketed to the top of the page. At the time of writing, the thread has just under 4,000 upvotes and over 300 comments.

The primary issue the thread raises is the drop rates of certain Pokemon from the 7km egg: “I want to open gifts everyday but I don’t want to waste an incubator just to get my 1000th Alolan Geodude.”

This sentiment is mirrored by commenters in the thread who have stated they have given up hatching 7km eggs altogether, because of a lack of variety in the rewards.

The author of the thread offers a solution, suggesting it “would be really nice to have those Alolan forms removed or at least the hatch rate dropped significantly.”

Of course, Niantic could always buff the drop rates of the rarer Pokemon in the pool to increase players’ chances of receiving what they want. However, it is unlikely they’ll ever make this change as they want to ensure rare Pokemon are difficult to acquire.

Storage space is becoming an issue for casual players in Pokemon Go.

It’s obvious a section of the Pokemon Go community has a serious problem with the drop rates for certain eggs in-game. With so much time being dedicated to hatching these eggs, players want more of a reward than they’re currently receiving.

Whether or not Niantic will make any changes on the back of this remains to be seen.
