Playstation 5 Showcase Event

Here’s a quick rundown of the show.

Final Fantasy 16 – Captured on PC emulating the PS5 experience. Holy shit, didn’t see that one coming. I thought the game was an MMO by the looks of it. Says it’s a console exclusive that is also coming to PC. I wasn’t really impressed by the brief video, but now that I know it’s a mainline title I might be a little more intrigued.

Spider Man: Miles Morales – The reflections are not ray traced, but they do look like a high quality SSR version. The first look at gameplay looks good. Hard to tell just how nice the city will look and the improvements by using PS5 hardware. Dark scene away from the city. Looked like a really nice PS4 game. Holiday release again.

Hogwarts Legacy – Never would have thought they’d announce a Harry Potter game at a Sony conference. Takes place in the late 1800s. Very interesting since I love the IP so much and that it doesn’t focus on the age of Harry himself. The graphics look nice, and they have a Deep Down dragon scene almost. Released next year.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War – Campaign mission is shown. I mean, yea, CoD. Coming this holiday. Hope they announce the release date.

Village Resident Evil (or just RE 8)– Feels like a mix between 4 and 7. Coming in 2021. I’d guess around Jan or Feb.

Deathloop – Delayed game is shown again. I really wonder if I’m going to like this game. It feels more fast paced and rogue-like, which isn’t why I play and love their games. It does feel like a funky 70’s version of Prey 2, which is cool.

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition – It looked they had ray traced reflections. I might actually give this game a shot on next-gen. Hopefully they come in at a discounted price since it’s a rerelease. The game does look just a little dated in graphics. Available at launch. Nice.

Oddworld: Soulstorm – This is a game series that I’ve tried and am just not interested in. I really don’t like the art style at all. I can’t get onboard with Abe, sorry. Lorne Lanning does like getting out there and talking about his IP.

  • They are not going to be announcing a price and release date. That’s how I’m feeling right now.

Five Nights at Freedy’s: Security Breach – …don’t even know what to say about this.

Demon Souls Remake – The game looks gorgeous. I really can’t wait to play this, might be my most anticipated game right now, besides Cyberpunk 2077. Just showed the incredibly fast loading speed, game changing. The lighting on the boss is really great. The bloom off the smoke towards the top of the frame. I also can’t wait to see RKG go through this game. Release date…not given? okay…suspect.

Fortnit -Of course you have to show this. Available at launch.

Playstation Plus collection – New benefit for PS5. They’re just showing a bunch of really good games. That are… available for PS5 users at launch. Called the PS4 Collection. Nice. This was a surprising feature.

Showing the console. Let’s get into it Sony!

November 12 – Release date

499 disk

399 digital

One more quick look he says…

Sounds like God of War!!

Ragnarok is coming next year. 2021!

Recap – So yes, they did announce a date and price. Which is fucking great, finally. When can I preorder now? The biggest announcements were the Harry Potter game, God of War Ragnarok coming out next year, and FF16 being a console exclusive. They hit a good price, especially for the cheaper console. The pricing on headphones and all that other stuff will probably just come out in a press release. Can’t wait for the next brief that shows how the console works and the menus and all that.
