What’s goin on everybody, Wav3yGawd here! If you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (if you don’t go do that now @phucaname on all 3) we posted that Sony announced a PlayStation 5 showcase for today!
It has been a couple of hours since it ended and they had a couple things to show us! The main question everyone had coming into this showcase was when is the console coming out and how much is it!? They saved that for the end of the showcase but we won’t leave y’all in suspense much longer because we like y’all. They also showed off some gameplay of their biggest games coming to the console so far and shared a major surprise at the end. So let’s get to it!
First, PlayStation revealed that their next console, the PlayStation 5 will be dropping this fall on November 12th and the standard disc edition will be $499 and the digital disc-less edition will be $399!
Mind you, this is 2 days after the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be dropping as well and for basically the same price. It is safe to say Sony did it again to Microsoft as well because pre orders for the PlayStation 5 will begin tomorrow for certain retailers! Get your wallets ready if you’re willing to get it day one!
For other parts of the conference they showed gameplay of one of the launch titles Spider-Man: Miles Morales and explained some back story of what we were seeing. As a native New Yorker and a fan of Spider-Man in general I am super hype for this! As soon as I saw the constructs (Timberland boots) I was sold, haha! While it might look like the first Spider-Man game combat wise, the powers are obviously different and this should be no shock if you know about the character from the comics. Check out the gameplay below!
They also showed gameplay of the next game in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops Cold War,check it out!
It’s looking real smooth and they announced that PlayStation 4 owners will get access to the Alpha on September 18th and extends through the weekend, also users can pre order the game on the console starting tomorrow! Shout out to the Call of Duty community! Now you might remember the rumors about a year ago or maybe longer saying that a Harry Potter RPG might be in the works, well PlayStation put the rumor to rest and showed it off!
Devil May Cry V was also announced that will be available for the PlayStation 5 at launch! That game will be available as well as many other PS4 exclusive games that will be available for PS Plus members at launch. Looks like a “PlayStation game pass”. Fortnite will also be available at launch as well, I am not a fan of that game but shout out to those of you who are! Demon’s Souls also showed off some gameplay and...it...looks...beautiful! Check it out!
The last thing that was shown at the showcase was quite a surprise! All you see is a dark screen and then it has the God of War symbol and I immediately got hype as the rest of the Phucaname squad in the chat! Then it says, “Ragnarok is coming...2021”!
Right now both consoles have my money like I stated in many other articles, but I will say I am a little more hype for the PlayStation 5! What about y’all!? Y’all pre ordering tomorrow?! Until next time, this has been Wav3yGawd, PEACE!
