Sony’s live event has officially come and gone and Sony did not disappoint. From the onset of their live feed, Sony showcased what you’ll be getting in terms of games on the PS5. What we saw from the new games was not just a bunch of beautiful cutscenes but actual gameplay.
It’s an exciting time if you are a console gaming and even more so if you’re team PS (I’m team PS). Today’s event will ramp up the “console wars” as we get closer and closer to the official launch day which is right around the corner. Microsoft and Sony both have two completely different sets of focus in their approach to their next gen. While it seems that Microsoft is still making superior hardware and the entertainment hub experience paramount above all. Sony is still all about games and design aesthetics.
What we did get today at least from Sony was a full on and in depth look at what to expect from Sony early in it’s lifespan. We got a look at some Sony exclusives and some great titles from third party developers which Sony has been looking to cash in on.
All in all it was an impressive showing although at times it dragged. Either way we know what to expect. What we didn’t see was The Last of Us 2 and Ghosts of Tsushima which are the titles that everyone is clamoring for BUT we did get a totally new Resident Evil game called Village and a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn called Forbidden West which was gorgeous and impressive.
Sony did not give a tentative date for pre-order let alone an official release but you can expect it to be for the holiday season. Sony is offering the PS5 in two forms. A “standard” edition which can play physical games and digital games and a “Digital” edition which is download only. No word on which version will be cheaper if in fact that’s the case but it’s nice that Sony gave us the option.
THE PS5 DESIGN
The design of the PS5 is different to say the least. I personally loved the curves color scheme and overall futuristic look of the PS5 but so far there are mixed opinion on the look of the PS5 but you can judge for yourself.
Sony has a nice lineup of accessories that you can purchase with the PS5 such as headphones, an HD camera, a media controller, a dual sense charging dock and of course you can always get extra controllers.
Once again, Sony was all about the games and they showed off a ton of games, too many to mention but if you must know what’s coming. You can check out the full live stream in the video above or you can just check out this list of what’s to come soon.
