For gamers who want to enjoy a massive library of games, it seems that Microsoft’s Xbox Series X could be the console to get. This is because the console will support backwards compatibility with games going back as far as the original Xbox as long as those games were already backwards compatible on the Xbox One X.
The last time Sony released a new God of War title for the PlayStation platform was back in 2018. However, the title released back then marked a slightly different approach Sony has taken in the past, where Kratos would be the main character. Instead, in this particular release, we saw Kratos share the spotlight with his son.
Sony recently announced its PS5 where it is priced at $499 for the regular version, and $399 for the digital version. However, both versions will come with a single controller, also known as the DualSense controller, so what if you wanted to play a local co-op game with your friends? You’d need to buy a new controller.
For the most part, a lot of modern games are priced around the $60 mark, which can be quite expensive if you go through them quickly. However, it seems that we might need to start preparing for the new normal because with some of Sony’s PS5 titles, the company has priced them at $70. This is also applicable to games for the Xbox Series X.
Square Enix released Final Fantasy XV back in 2016, so if you think that maybe it’s about time that the company follow up with a sequel, you’ll be happy to hear that during Sony’s PS5 announcement, Final Fantasy XVI was announced alongside it as well, although not much is known about the game at the moment.
Have you been looking forward to the PS5? If you have, you might be pleased to learn that Sony has finally announced the availability and pricing of their next-gen console, where it is expected to be released on the 12th of November for the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.
A report from a couple of months ago suggested that to meet the demand of gamers stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Sony could actually boost its PS5 production. However, that may no longer be the case, at least that’s according to a report from Bloomberg which suggests that Sony might actually end up producing less than expected.
Microsoft recently unveiled its Xbox Series S console. Priced at $299, it is one of Microsoft’s cheapest consoles to date, especially for a next-gen console, and if you were worried about performance, it seems that you might not need to worry too much. This is because according to The Verge’s Tom Warren, it will be faster than the PS5.
Sony’s PS5 will be launching later this year, but we imagine that based on the history of the PlayStation launches, it might be hard to get at the start. We had heard that Sony could be looking to control orders for the console by limiting it to one console per household, and if you are interested, here’s how you can get it.
Typically consoles are bundled with one controller. If you want extra, you’ll need to buy it yourself. We imagine that this will be true of the Sony PS5, but if you were thinking that if you could just reuse your PS4 controller, think again because Sony has confirmed that the PS4 controller will not work with PS5 games.
Sony will be releasing their PS5 next-gen console later this year. For the most part, if you already own a TV, it should just be a matter of plugging it in and you’re all set. However, it seems that leading up to the launch of the console, Sony has actually announced several “Ready for PlayStation 5” TVs that are apparently optimized for the console.
With the PS4, when you bought the console you would need to choose the color right out of the gate. This is because once the console is chosen, you would basically have to live with your color choice. However, Sony could be thinking of making a different approach with the upcoming PS5 console.
The price of games have increased over the years. Right now, the price most can expect to pay for triple A titles are $60, but some companies such as 2K have increased those prices to $70 for games designed for next-gen consoles like Sony’s PS5 and the upcoming Microsoft Xbox Series X.
The Sony PS5 is expected to be released later this year. Given the popularity of the PlayStation series in general, we expect that there will most likely be a rush of gamers eager to place their orders. In order to ensure that gamers will be able to purchase the console, it seems that Sony could be employing a preventive measure that will limit one console purchase per household.
