Watch Travis Scott’s new PS5 video

Watch a unique video created by Travis to kick off our strategic creative partnership.

Today, we’re excited to announce Travis Scott has joined the PlayStation family as a strategic creative partner. We heard Travis is a huge PlayStation fan, so we started a conversation with him that led to this unique partnership. Through our mutual passion for gaming and creativity, we plan on collaborating with Travis and his Cactus Jack brand to produce innovative projects that we hope will delight our collective fans. 

Travis is an artist who is incredibly innovative, constantly surprising, and continues to push boundaries, very much like the PlayStation brand – so we think this is a perfect fit. When we embarked on this collaboration, the most important thing was to keep it as open as possible, to allow space to explore interesting, creative ideas. 

Travis’ deep knowledge and fond memories about PlayStation as a brand, our products, and games will inspire his work with us from start to finish. He is an amazing creator, and we strive to work with the best creative minds inside and outside of our industry to continue to surprise the world in a way that only PlayStation can.

Travis wanted to share a few words:

I’m really looking forward to being able to showcase everything that Cactus Jack has worked on with Sony and the PlayStation team. Most importantly I’m excited to see how the PlayStation fans and family respond, and I look forward to running some games with everybody very soon!

Today we are excited to share with you a unique video, created by Travis to kick off our partnership. The video features a few of the key people that worked on different aspects of the PlayStation 5 console.

Special thanks to Travis, we are thrilled to work with him and cannot wait to share more with you soon.

  • Love the TS5 dunks. When are they releasing?

    • Creative Sony back at it.

      Can’t wait for a real launch lineup on Nov 12.

      Demon’s Souls, Miles, Sackboy, Destruction All-Stars, Godfall, The Pathless, let’s go.

      UI lookin insane. Dual Sense, 3D Pulse, Tempest. Sony has this gen locked down.

    • This PlayStation. When do they drop?! (Please bring them to Canada)

  • Amazing ! Travis Scott is my favorite artist and I love Playstation ! I want to see Travis Official custom panels at 39.99 in stores or maybe a controller or a theme !

  • Are we going to get some cool special edition Cactus Jack panels for the ps5?!

  • I’ll take “Things I did not expect” for $2,000, Alex.

  • LA FLAME!! STRAIGHT UP!!

  • This is great!

  • I’m excited to see the future of this!!!

  • “Travis is an artist who is incredibly innovative, constantly surprising, and continues to push boundaries, very much like the PlayStation brand”

    So the innovation comes from Maxell’s ad agency for creating such a timeless commercial 40 years ago?

    • Winner, winner! I am so VERY thankful that I’m not the only one who thought back to that iconic advert.

    • I posted a link to the original commercial

    • I was coming here to say the exact same thing. Just a ripoff of the old Maxwell ad. Like that’s fine, but at least admit it or say it was your nod to that ad.

    • It’s clearly a parody and not just a ripoff. I think it’s supposed to be interpreted as the sense of immersion for the next console, in the same way the iconic Maxell ad did it for music and tapes.

  • What a pointless video, that gave us absolutely nothing.

    Also who is Travis Scott?

  • I love it.

    So much style, so unique. Kills those terrible power your dreams Xbox ads.

    Creative Sony is good Sony.

  • What is this I don’t even

  • NO THANKS. have literally no interest in this person or anything to do with him.

  • Also does this mean PlayStation Mansion might return?

  • So.. just checking,

    PlayStation is now represented by someone who refers to women as “b*tches” and “hos”, raps about taking prescription drugs, and who’s videos are women wearing barely any clothes and jiggling about while the camera leers all over their bodies.

    After all the gaming world has gone through in recent months, the rampant abuse and sexism across the industry, you hire this guy.

    Great move Sony.

  • Lol Travis Scott is a joke.
    The name cactus jack is used by mick foley. That’s the original cactus jack.
    He just copy and paste lol me and him are born the same year 1991 which he should know.

  • I’m sorry but that’s nothing new or creative…..look up Maxell …. come on Sony

  • Besides the fact that Sony has left home theater enthusiasts out to dry and he wouldn’t actually be able to use those speakers for 3d audio. I need Sony to offer atmos for games that don’t have tempest. I need Sony to offer atmos, dtsx, and Dolby vision for apps, and bluray, and eventually Dolby vision for gaming. Nothing less than this is an acceptable next gen console to me. People have no idea what they’re missing out in because they use the ps4 to stream content. I do not want to have to play with that garbage controller on the other side…but if say…NBA 2k22 is in Dolby vision and Dolby atmos for Xbox, and Dolby digital and hdr10 for ps5….WTF DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO HAPPEN?? NOT ALL GAMES SUPPORT TEMPEST..WHAT ABOUT THE REST??? WHAT ABOUT DOLBY VISION? HDR10 ISNT EVEN CURRENT GEN, ITS LAST GEN AND ITS TRASH.
    If they do not support atmos and vision for streaming apps then this console is getting thrown off my balcony immediately. Then I will go downstairs and go ‘office space’ on that circa 2017 POS

    • The thing with Tempest is that you don’t need special equipment to utilize it. You’ll get 3D audio with just a TV speaker. And the PS5 has an ultra Blu-ray player, so I’m sure it will support all audio types for that.

      Also, don’t be such a brat. You’re not going to throw your PS5 off the porch, you’re just being a bratty drama queen. If it was really all about home theater for you, then you would get a dedicated AV system that supports all the latest feature. I’m pretty sure no Home Theater enthusiast is looking to either console for their home theater needs. Lmao.

  • Not a lot of PS5 consoles have gone out to notable people to publicize it, unlike the XBOX Series X. One of the prominent names in video games, Geoff Keighley, literally just got a PS5.

    Meanwhile, a month ago a console went to some random rapper who’s claim to fame is having sex with a chick who’s family’s claim to fame is her sister making a sex tape with some other rapper.

    Sony clearly has their priorities straight with who should get consoles early.

  • He looks very happy. I can’t wait to be happy too!

  • Yeah no thanks. Awful decision. I think I’ll switch to xbox or pc now.

  • Also you now listen to our personal conversations in private partys and sell our data, make a horrible brand deal with someone who has nothing to do with the industry, while also releasing a sub par system that is outclassed in everyway by your competition and charge the same amount of money for it. Focus on the games and entertainment. Not brand deals with nobody’s.

    • They don’t listen to party conversations by default. It has to be reported by someone. No data is being sold that’s a lie. Travis Scott is a PlayStation fan and has been since he was a kid. PS5 has the best I/O architecture on either consoles or PC at the moment, not outclassed. Sony has and will continue to focus on having the best games. Look for at least 2 GOTY nominees this year alone from SIE.

  • Two words, Mon Tage. Seriously though two words, Kevin Butler. I already told you in October 2019 when you announced PS5’s name, to bring back Lambert to play Kevin Butler to mock and own everything in the world today, while also easily making PS5 fly off shelves for the next 7 years.

    But no, you are so out of touch with your marketing at the moment it’s baffling.

  • Sheesh, looks like they went a bit overboard with the cooling fan.

  • Sticking with my PS3 for now,can’t afford PS5 for now

  • do you think if travis scott is joining ps5 you think that will bring people back to playstation people left because everything your company represents is a rip off xbox i get better exclusives and better games and i was a playstation fan since 2014 and left and have no plans of returning and im going to pc where more xbox exclusives are at

    • 80% of all next gen console pre-orders are PS5 pre orders lol

    • “everything your company represents is a rip off xbox i get better exclusives and better games ”

      so many lies, so little time.

    • Look, say what you want about the baffling marketing decision there is with this person I’ve never heard of. But don’t bring the next gen Xbox grand plan of a main console and a terrible weaker variant and their, so far, INSANE failings and your delusions into it lol.

      Better exclusives? Name 3, no, 1, name 1 without lying to yourself more.

    • Bye. Xbox was made after PS. How can it be a rip-off. Get a dictionary.

  • Oh awesome I can’t wait to play the Travis Scott game over elder scrolls 6

  • Yeah Sony! You know people will flock to the PS5 now don’t ya?
    Yea NO.

  • Can you get David Lynch to do another Playstation commercial. I would thoroughly enjoy that.

  • Awesome I like Travis Scott he did a great video in fortnite last year. Great calibration. And love playstation owned every generation. A whole lot better product than the xbox series. I will definitely stay with playstation my ride or die love to stream and play video games. I’m sure PS5
    will also be a good generation.

  • That’s a cool spot¡¡

  • Reminds me of the cassette ad from back in the day.

  • So it’s a trainer advert?

  • I literally have no idea who Travis Scott is.

  • Not a clue who he is but…… OZZFEST!!!!!!!!!!!

    No clue what this video was for either……maybe a hint at Sony doing a game pass ultimate thing where we get value for our PSPlus subscription by having JUST RELEASED games to play for free (other than the psplus sub cost of course)….doubt it but had to try.

    • Why would they do that when their games are still selling 4 millions units in less than a week from launch in 2020? They only need to do something desperate like Xbox did………… when they are desperate like Xbox is.

  • i had to cancel my ps5 pre order and all the peripherals, unless sony fix what they’ve broke i’ll upgrade my pc with the cash. Sony offer nothing of worth for me.

  • Lol the writer is the same guy that said preorders wouldn’t be at a moment’s notice

  • Another reason why the fuse of EU-Blog and US-Blog ist crap. Nobody outside US gives a crap about Travis somethingwhatever… this is literally a nothing but a US commercial… he may be a great artist idk, I do not like hiphop and it is in the EU not as big as in the US. So i don’t care about this so called strategic creative partnership.

    For god sake split the blog into us and EU again.. worst decision ever…

  • I have a question and wanted to ask on the most recent post so that I can get an answer :) I’ve pre-ordered Miles Morales and Sackboy on my PS4. Now that the store is updated, I expected to see my free PS5 upgrade. But it says “not available for purchase”, instead of “already purchased”. Is there a problem or will I be able to download them at launch?

    • Its not available for purchase cause you have purchased the PS4 edition. PS4 and PS5 edition are different things and that’s why it doesn’t say already purchased. When you get your PS5 you can download them

  • Yeah, real and artistic ads over influencers any day, though I will say the music in this is epic and I like the lamp falling over, but it almost feels more like an ad for speakers :)

    • I guess, when you take the awesome Maxell ad in account, it could be interpreted as PS5 delivering that sense of immersion? Not bad at all.

  • Hopefully this just means there could be cool future collaborations. As for this one i could care less about that guy.

  • Travis got one early :(

  • I hope he is planning on trading in his sound system for headphones.. the lack of dolby along with Sony deflecting from answering questions about surround sound systems is alarming. As much as I dislike Xbox they’re pushing me in that direction… Please respond to these items before you lose customers!

  • Why can’t I pre-order this thing anywhere? What are you doing?

    • I mean its not necessarily their fault you haven’t been as fast as others. i got mine at 5 in the morning lmfao. Hope u get one soon

  • Series X and Game Pass are looking better every week. People want Backwards Compatibility, Uncensored games and value for money, not Travis Scott. Is this even the same Company ? Oh yeah that’s right, it’s not because Sony HQ moved from Japan to California. So disappointing.

    • “People want Backwards Compatibility” less then 2 percent.

      “Uncensored games and value for money” never buy xbox or nintendo then.

    • Man the hells the point of you being here to spread hate. You are clearly biased. The main reason people buy a new console is for new games. BC is a bonus. Not like we don’t have it we have all PS4 games but 10. Xbox has full BC sure. But literally like 5% of people will suddenly go. Remember that game from decades ago. Ye, i want that at 4k 60fps. As for better games Idk what u on about especially when Ghost of Tsushima dropped. You wanna get a Series X go buy one and stop spreading hate

  • So I couldn’t get a preorder because sony only selected a few ppl for it. Then all the bots bought the rest to scalp yet this no talent sloth has had one for months. Thanks Sony. The first system since the original Playstation that I couldn’t buy on launch day

  • Question: Who is Travis Scott? Also, wow. That video made absolutely no sense at all.
