Sony will be holding its Future of Gaming streaming event on Thursday (11 June), giving gamers their first chance to see some of the new titles for the eagerly anticipated PlayStation 5.
The event is a chance to see the first games that will be released for the new console - and some fans are even getting pretty hopeful that Sony might unveil the PlayStation 5 itself.

As yet, the company hasn't confirmed that it'll be giving a first-look at the console, but that hasn't stopped plenty of fans assuming that Thursday will be the big reveal.
Posting on Twitter, one person said: "So excited to see what Sony have to offer with the PS5 reveal tomorrow. Heard so many good rumours for some great games and I am also excited to see what the actual console looks like."
A second added: "I can't wait until the 11th so I can peep what the new PS5 will look like."
While a third said: "I am so excited for the PS5 stream. Just want to see what the dang thing looks like."
The event takes place at 9pm (BST) on Thursday, with Sony Interactive Entertainment president and chief executive Jim Ryan promising that it will showcase games that 'represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe'. Well, that sounds exciting, doesn't it?
He added: "There are few things as exciting as the launch of a new console. While this road to launch has been a bit... different, we are as thrilled as ever to bring you with us on this journey to redefine the future of video games."
Although we've not yet laid eyes on the new console, we have seen a new black and white controller which will be released with the PlayStation 5.
Thursday's event was initially planned for last week, but Sony decided to pause it following the protests over the death of George Floyd in the US.
Announcing the decision, the company said: "While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard."
The new console is due to be released later this year. Rival Microsoft is also launching its new console the Xbox Series X around the same time.
