Later today Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) will be lifting the lid on its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Even with the current world climate that has created plenty of excitement with fans eager to see what the new design looks like. While the launch isn’t taking place until the end of 2020, locations around the world are already making preparations, like the Bonami Game Museum which is building a PlayStation 5 Experience Zone.
With a few months to go until PlayStation 5 arrives the museum has really started preparations early with a massive wall decoration now up. It’ll further develop the area so visitors can enjoy the most up to date console gaming experience SIE will offer.
“Gamers are looking forward to the arrival of the PlayStation 5. Our museum will receive the PS5 as one of the first in the Netherlands. We are already preparing for this, so that visitors can experience the differences between the PS4 and PS5 for themselves. Naturally, we also have something fun in store for the Xbox enthusiasts, more about that later,” says John Groenewold, owner of the Bonami SpelComputer Museum, reports Let’s Go Digital.
Located in Zwolle, Bonami SpelComputer Museum has a range of retro gaming and modern consoles to offer visitors, possibly the largest videogame console collection in the Netherlands. From 90s classics like the Atari Jaguar or the Goldstar 3DO ( as well as older devices) to modern machines like the PlayStation 4, Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch, there’s something for every videogame fan. Virtual reality (VR) hardware is on hand with the museum owning an Oculus Rift – a Nintendo Virtual Boy is also part of the collection.
Let’s Go Digital also notes that BAAS, the Amsterdam PR agency for SIE Benelux, has said that the coronavirus (COVID-19): “has not yet delayed the launch of the PlayStation 5 for the time being.” Companies have reported supply chain issues arising from the fact that either everything is built in China or some components are. PlayStation 5 probably hasn’t gone into production just yet but there could be knock-on effects in the months to come.
As further details on PlayStation 5 and its support for PlayStation VR come to light, VRFocus will let you know.
