It has already been reported that supplies of AMD processors for the PS5 have been increasing in preparation for the assembly process of the next-gen console, and now another report has stated that production of the separate parts has now started. This will come as welcome relief to those concerned that the PS5 will not meet its scheduled launch timeframe of holiday 2020, even if the initial production run has to be limited. Apparently, demand for NAND memory this year is expected to increase by 5% just because of the PS5’s requirements.

Eagle-eyed trademark filing browsers have come across some Gran Turismo-related files with the Argentina intellectual property office. It seems the three relevant files are all dated June 3, which would have been just in time for the originally planned June 4 PS5 event, possibly hinting that a new Gran Turismo title would have been part of the lineup for the postponed game reveal event. The three applications include a Gran Turismo logo, a trademark for game developer Polyphony Digital, and one for the wordsGran Turismo”.

PS5 fans around the world have been getting excited over the appearance of adverts via platforms such as Twitch and YouTube promoting a new date for the delayed PS5 event. Fortunately, Sony has now confirmed that the adverts were genuine, and that the upcoming rescheduled PS5 event will take place on Thursday June 11. Apparently the event will start at 1:00 PM (Pacific Daylight Time), 9:00 PM (British Summer Time). Time to get the PS5 hype train rolling again.
