It’s hard to believe we got our first look at the PlayStation 5 in June, at Sony’s future of gaming show. From there we figured news would continue to flow. Other than a State of Play in August featuring games, nothing more was seen of PS5. Here we are 3 months later (that have actually flown by to be honest) and it’s our next opportunity to get more information on the PS5 and hopefully its launch details for later this year. I am hype…
Showtime, YouTube & Twitch streaming figures both over 100k with 20 mins till the show starts. The music for the last hour (yep, I watched the above for an hour) is ambient and tone setting. It feels like a big night ahead.
In the final 5 minutes the music has really shifted, and absolutely built the hype.
We start bang on time at 9pm.
First thing we see is the PS5 console and a look at some of the games revealed in June in a montage.
Final Fantasy XVI
The first trailer is captured on PC emulating the PS5 experience. It’s a new game, it looks like Final Fantasy, there are chocobos… I’m sure. Yep it is Final Fantasy, but is it a numbered entrant to the series? Final Fantasy 16 is PlayStation console exclusive. Wow
Spider-Man Miles Morales
Over to Spider-Man: Miles Morales next. We get a first look at game-play of Miles Morales. The events take place one year after the last outing on PS4. Holiday 2020 still the only tease of a date we get.
