Popular Japanese YouTube creators such as Anija Otoja, Chachacha, Gucci no Heya, will get to try PlayStation 5 ahead of its release in November, as a part of YouTube Gaming Week.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan have announced their participation in the upcoming YouTube-sponsored gaming festival, "YouTube Gaming Week Japan".
The event will be held from Thursday, September 24, to Sunday, October 4, and popular YouTube creators from Japan will go hands-on with Sony's highly-anticipated PlayStation 5 console, in a series of videos, called "Try! PlayStation 5 on YouTube Gaming Week”.
PlayStation 5 will launch in Japan on November 12, so this is a great PR move by Sony, as they've gathered some of the biggest names from the Japanese YouTube scene.
The mentioned "Try! PlayStation 5 on YouTube Gaming Week" project will start October 4, at 18:00 (JST), and a series of videos will be available on selected YouTubers' channels.
