Sony reveals the PlayStation 5 and trailers for Horizon, Gran Turismo, Spider-Man and more

    “We’re going to have the games do our talking.” That was Sony’s line going into the primary main PlayStation 5 occasion. Months of low-key information drops and technical specs culminated in at the moment, the place we lastly noticed some precise video games, together with Spider-Man: Miles MoralesGran Turismo 7, and a brand new full-length Ratchet & Clank. Oh, and uh…Grand Theft Auto V?

    We additionally noticed the console itself. Or fairly, consoles. There’s a PlayStation 5 with a disc drive, and one other with out that’s billed because the “Digital Edition.” No phrase on value but. Microsoft and Sony are nonetheless ready for the opposite to flinch on that entrance, so possibly we’ll discover out at Microsoft’s Xbox occasion in July. Maybe.

    You’ll discover all of at the moment’s greatest bulletins under, and you should definitely verify again Saturday for our protection of the PC Gaming Show. Always a favourite round right here.

    The {hardware}

    Here’s your necessary {hardware} sizzle reel. It seems to be very spiky, and really unusual laying down on its aspect. I am unable to say I’m an enormous fan, although possibly it might look much less weird and clam-like in strong black? It’s extra thrilling than Microsoft’s boring Xbox Series X design, but in addition a lot, a lot riskier—and possibly not in a great way.

    Grand Theft Auto V

    Grand Theft Auto V was initially a PlayStation 3 sport, a capper to the final era. Then it acquired ported to PlayStation 4. And now? It’s one of many first video games we’ll see on the following era. With the neighborhood clamoring for Grand Theft Auto VI, Sony as a substitute revealed that Grand Theft Auto V shall be “enhanced” for the PlayStation 5. Is Grand Theft Auto V the brand new Skyrim? Maybe—although who is aware of, possibly we’ll get Skyrim on next-gen consoles as nicely.

    Spider-Man: Miles Morales

    Hey, Insomniac is making a brand new Spider-Man! And it stars Miles Morales! And that’s in all probability sufficient to promote you on the thought, which is nice as a result of this teaser trailer barely exhibits the rest! The final Spider-Man was one of many PlayStation 4’s most spectacular video games on a technical stage, and I’m trying ahead to seeing an upgraded Manhattan on PlayStation 5.

    Gran Turismo 7

    It wouldn’t be next-gen with no automobile sport, in fact. We acquired our first have a look at the long-awaited Gran Turismo 7, and it seems to be…like a racing sim. I can’t say at the moment’s footage seems to be any higher than Project CARS operating on a high-end PC, however hey, it’s like that high-end Project CARS footage runs on a $500-ish PC now, and that’s not unhealthy.

    Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

    Sony’s trotting out all of the previous favorites. Next on the listing was Ratchet & Clank, which Insomniac barely touched for the whole thing of the PlayStation 4. Pretty shocking to see it pop up right here, with Rift Apart. The large information is that the PlayStation 5’s loading instances apparently permit Ratchet and Clank to teleport from planet to planet near-instantaneously. There’s nonetheless what seems to be like a disguised loading display (within the type of a rift) however it’s approach quicker than something this era—even on PC, the place loading instances are typically shorter.
