PlayStation 5 – The Future of Gaming

  • Wait. Is this just publishing, or did sony acquire housemarque?!

    • Yes it’s very weird to label this as PlayStation Studios when Sony doesn’t own half these studios!!!

    • PlayStation just put Xbox to rest.

      Returnal looks incredible.

    • They announced that the PSStudio label will be for 1st and 2nd Party games in which SONY was heavilly involved in the development and funding and marketing, so as to asure that the consumers knows what to expect: It is a bit like the Nintendo seal of approval. For Housemarque i can assume that they collaborated with a SONY studio like Guerilla Games and maybe used their Game Engine or have some SONY devs working on parts of the game like, sound design or Animation etc. It could also be that SONY acquired them and it might be anounced shortly

    • Vivis_apprentice

      When the Playstation Studios brand was announced this was their statement:

      “If our studios are managing the production of these games and working with an external developer, it will still come out under the PlayStation Studios brand,” Lempel details. “It doesn’t mean that we outright own the developer, but it just means we brought it up as a first-party. In a lot of cases we don’t own the developer.”

    • in other words, they own the IP, not necessarily the studio, is that so?

  • Great to see the return of Sackboy, what a cool character. A new Housemarque game and a Demons Souls remake too. Very good show imo

  • JamieBhoyBoom998

    WOW ! I am foaming at the mouth for all of these games I’ve bought all PlayStations except the vita but the PlayStation 5 is a work of art Bravo Sony PlayStation

  • My hope with Demon’s Souls is that you update some of the slightly clunky mechanics of the original!

    No more being forced to play offline so that the global world tendency didn’t affect your own (which was made worse there were limited options to change world tendency).

    No more 1 in 10103204040403020 drop chance of certain items. As “fun” as getting Pure Bladestones was, it’s not exactly something many players look forward to, or something i’d wish to relive.

    Maybe some rebalance of stats and weapons. Like not having a Luck stat. Also making it so certain weapons (and upgrades) weren’t quite so overpowered or pointless.

    Removal of some of the grind (the dupe bug was almost a requirement).

    Fix the archstone which has been broken since launch. 😜

  • Thank you for recognizing the importance of having games like Ratchet, Astro and Sackboy! I hope this is something we see during the PS5’s lifetime and not just at the start.

    Ape Escape is something a lot of people would like to return as well as Sly Cooper if you’re taking suggestions!

    • I agree. I’m not into the FPS, GTA, CoD mature titles. And I’m not into first party Nintendo games as much.
      Sony has great variety games. Perfect show for everyones taste

  • Real glad to see Sackboy return. Was starting to fear I’d never be able to use my myriad of costumes anymore :) Always love me some Ratchet and Clank humor, Spiderman great fun with amazing traversal, Gran Turismo still the only racing game I really need to keep me entertained in that genre, and Horizon, that’s just one of the best games this generation. Love Housemarque as well, they always have technically outstanding games for indies, probably because they’re exclusives.
    Astro’s Playroom pre loaded though… Can we at least delete it?

    • Yes, let us delete Playroom.

      It’s a bit silly making people have a game installed that they can’t even play unless they own a camera. Or have played and don’t care about any more.

    • @MiseryPrincess this actually isn’t a VR game. This is a traditional game to show off all of the new innovations of the DualSense controller.
      I am with you on being able to delete it though. Would suck if we can’t. But rest assured, you’ll be able to play it!

    • @ chasimus

      I know it’s not a VR game.

      The original preinstalled PS4 game (if you don’t own a camera) is just a trailer, there’s no game play. So hopefully they allow the PS5 version to be deleted or make it actually functional without a camera. 😁

  • Wait Bluepoint, Housemarque And Sumo Digital are PlayStation Studios now !!!!! Is this some kind of a mistake?

    • i didnt noticed it..but who knows,maybe they are on family…maybe they will continue remastering others?? but them they told they wont be doing remaster,they will look forward to develop something new.

  • Remastering demon’s souls as a launch game is just fighting dirty…

    • they never said it’s a launch game…probably most of the games listed are not. in fact they announced almost no for all we know we could be looking at several years of PS5 content.

    • My guess is, because we don’t have a launch date of the console lol. The next show they put on would be amazing if concrete dates were put on a lot of these games.

  • Finished 2 weeks ago for the 2nd time Horizon zero dawn plus DLC,im so hyped for this one,underwater,more animals,more diversity and Sillas with his domination over machines…now the true will be revealed,who sent Hades? the West and much more. noticed our Alloy is a bit older but a little more adult,not at all… I love alloy,i didnt until finish for the 2nd time and see that i am like alloy,i love machines and love to deal with them but never fighted like she does,she is strong,she impose her love for uncover the unknow,for discover about machines,also she is so bealtiful but i didnt realized this until finish for the 2nd time,she is red head and it makes she more appart from the tribe where she grew. but she never surrended,she never looked down or back,she always look forward and fight with her own hands without scary,she dont fear.

  • Atleast i wished she could have someone to protect her,maybe someone not stopping she by what she doest,but someone that is on her side to protect her when she needs,to carry about…. i would love if i were the writter or game director,because she is unstoppable but she inst invunerable..she would need someone sometime..somewhere where is danger

  • Will it support ps4 games?(i wanna keep horizon zero dawn)

  • PS5

  • Sackboy A Big Adventure and Astro’s Playroom are my most hyped PS5 games, I really can’t wait to play both of them since they look really fun.

  • spiderman miles morales aaaaaaaaaahhh. it would be wayyyyy more better if they made him wear that hoodie.

  • spiderman miles morales aaaaaaaaaahhh. it would be wayyyyy more better if they made him wear that hoodie. it would be lit

  • It was pretty obvious that Horizon 2 would be shown but I’m mad disappointed that no gameplay was shown,was expecting it to show the power of the PS5.Ratchet was unexpected but not like Sackboy’s return that one was a huge surprise,wish you guys had brought Sly back but oh well.A Spider-Man focusing on miles is lame,he was introduced too soon.Loved the idea of Astro and even more that it’s pre-loaded on the PS5,hopefully that will give Astro the spotlight he deserves.Destruction AllStars looks fun as hell glad it’s exclusive.Returnal well it’s Housemarqe nothing else to say.And lame as hell to see Demon’s Souls recycled,another excuse for cash-grab like Shadow was.Oh yes GT7 finally a racing game that will top Driveclub’s insane tech…I guess.

    Hmm…upset that there’s no Little Devil Inside post here in the Blog…that was the best game of the show for me,totally stole the show.Looks simply incredible in all aspects.

  • Last nights showcase was fantastic, it didn’t disappoint well done to everyone at Sony for putting this together. I’m really looking forward to hearing what else you have planned for the PS5, bring on the next generation!

  • @Demon Souls:
    “players can choose between two graphics modes while playing: one focused on fidelity, and one focused on frame rate.”

    Why not have both? Isn’t this supposed to be next-gen?
    Agree that for some immense worlds/games this should be an option, but for a remake of an 11 years old game, you cannot pull it off to have both fidelity and 60fps?

    Don’t get me wrong – I’m hyped as hell to play it again. Hopefully with some fixes.. not the same state as DS1.

    • just said the same thing to a friend, next gen and still have to choose between frames and quality , surely the point of the new machines was to stop this

    • I was asking myself the same question. Wasn’t next gen supposed to deliver 4K@60fps for all games? I’m confused…

    • @unbiased @Huarache00
      Yeah – I was under the same impression, but either (at least for Demon Souls) they won’t create a new engine and stick to DS3 one – or the 4k60fps thing was a marketing gimmick.

      I think that if you still have to trade quality for fluency, some of us will stick to PC ports – in case there is one – as they offer both at the same time.

      Time (release) will tell..

    • They did create a new engine for DS2, that ran much, much smoother and would even do 60fps 1080p on Intel graphics. It’s still the only From Engine to reach smooth 60fps (DS3 does not on consoles, but is basically never smooth).

      But for some reason they went back to the clunky DS1 engine with Bloodborne and DS3 and haven’t returned.

    • Because people want better graphics. This console could make 4K/60fps current gen games, but people want better graphics, distance, effects, illumination.

      PS5 is around 8x more powerful than PS4. But you want 4x resolution (really more because last PS4 games are not 1080p anymore) and double framerate.

      They need give us several graphical options.

  • sooo.. what are the launch games? you announced almost no for all we know we could be looking at several years of PS5 content.

    also we’re still choosing between 4K and 60fps?! I thought the point was that we can get 4K60 now?!

    • Looks like Spider-Man is a launch game and that’s good enough for me ;)
      Not sure where you’re getting the ‘choosing between 4k and 60 fps’ thing from – maybe I missed something.

    • i was excited about spidey but then read its a remake/remaster with extra bells and the miles tuff tagged on, dont get me wrong i love the game but ive played it to death, hope the miles gets some sort of seperate release if poss

    • @theVoltan It says so in this page, on the copy for the Demon’s Souls remake: “players can choose between two graphics modes while playing: one focused on fidelity, and one focused on frame rate.”

    • Thevoltan
      demons souls is the 4k stuff , they announced you can choose between frame rate or resolution, something that you would think next gen consoles wouldnt need to doanymore

    • to be fair they said “fidelity” – which doesn’t necessarily mean resolution. So both modes might be 4K but the 60 fps one with lower quality/disabled effects.

    • You would think that wouldn’t you? I think 4K 60fps should be made standard on all games for PS5.

    • @Strangeheaven Why? How about games like FPS, driving/sports and fighter games will be the same 60fps they have always been. While others will be the 30fps they have always been.

      If a game has to “run at 60fps” like people say casually, that means it actually HAS to run at LOCKED 60fps, something a lot of “60fps” games do not do. This means every single other thing in the game’s engine/design has to be compromised to achieve this.
      Meaning we would get games that are not a massive leap visually from this gen to next.
      However, maybe some games will go with the 60fps/dynamic res option and that would be great because it would keep some people happy.

  • The only one I’m interested in is GT7.

  • The games that impressed me the most were ” Little Devil Inside and Kena: Bridge Of Spirits

  • Cant wait for the New horizon loved the first one

  • Bluepoint games should make there own new IP. Anyone here remember ” Blast Factor ” on PS3? That game came out when PS3 launched in the U.K in March 2007. That was the only game that ran at 1080p 60fps locked, which was an achievement in itself.

    • Nope, Ridge Racer 7, a full on retail release ran at 1080p 60fps locked and even got a 3D update later.

  • Bluepoint Games should easily get ” Demons Soul ” running at 4K 60fps as standard on PS5. Heck they got ” Blast Factor ” running at 1080p 60fps on PS3 in 2007.

  • Can you please make this PlayStation Blog the way it was designed on the EU Blog please Sony.

  • I’m still wondering why you guys haven’t updated the drop since last month…

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 made me buy a PlayStation 4 Pro. Now Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will make me buy the brand new PlayStation 5 this Christmas as big present from Santa. I spoke with him and he agrees. Thank you. 💙 PlayStation is the best.

  • > immersive 3D audio allows players to sense the position of other cars and drivers around them.

    I don’t want to “sense” their position, I want to take a look around me and see them in VR.

  • I’m really hoping my 300 dollar arctis pro wireless headphones work on the ps5 with full 3D audio capabilities, I read the ps5 might not have an optical audio input cus 3D audio doesn’t support optical audio

    • According to the original presentation the “3d audio” works on normal stereo TV speakers and headsets.

      Optical is just another audio interface, that transports sound, which is exactly how the 3d audio is being transmitted. There’s no technical reason why basic audio sent through an analog headphone jack would work, but not an optical port.

      The only real reason I can think that they wouldn’t include an optical port is if they considered people didn’t use it enough. But they seem pretty popular with TV audio equipment, so who knows.


    60 Frames Per Second Sony…Needs to be mandatory.

  • I would very much like such a powerful console as the PS5 not to be left without one of the best Wipeout exclusives. A large number of true fans of this game are waiting for the release of the new version of WipeOut. Tell me, is the development of new parts of this legendary game underway ?

    Очень бы хотелось, что бы такая мощная приставка как PS5 не осталась без одного из лучших эксклюзивов WipeOut. Скажите, ведётся ли разработка новых частей этой легендарной игры ?

  • Release dates or window would’ve been nice to be included :)

    thanks for nice list of projects.

  • Can the ps5 play ps2 3 and 4 games

  • We need store in egypt #Egypt_ps4_ps5_store

  • I am excited. Really looking for Horizon, Spiderman Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls… though the new Ratchet & Clank looks really nice.

    It looks like a great start for the new generation (for both Sony and Microsoft).


  • So incredibly excited for PS5… This is such a great time to be a PlayStation Gamer!

  • Looking forward to playing most of the announced games. But am not seeing any that are a must be a new console for.
    What price do you think the new PS5 games will be ?
    Will we have a new price point or the current price point ?

  • es muy bueno para mi que hayan sacado un spider-man de miles morales porque la historia del primero quedo hay y nada mas
