After months fueled by speculations and crazy rumors, the PS5 was FINALLY REVEALED!
Yes, it was finally REVEALED and there must be a few people not knowing this by now, I mean the Internet is going NUTS as we all should.

Sony is raising the bar and setting new standards with GREAT reveals.

We saw a new ‘RATCHET AND CLANK’, a new chapter for ‘SPIDER-MAN’, ‘GRAND TURISMO 7’ was also revealed and the s*it is just getting started! ‘HITMAN 3’,  the conclusion of the assassin-trilogy with the most ambitious setting yet – DUBAI!

If that does not impress you, then how about ‘RESIDENT EVIL VIII: VILLAGE’ or ‘DEMON’S SOUL’s’ Remake? AAAAAAND…. ‘HORIZON II: FORBIDDEN WEST’, which may be THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING EVER!

There is also a new IP from SQUARE ENIX and another published by BETHESDA and lots of fun games; ‘KENA: BIRDGE OF SPIRITS’, ‘LITTLE DEVIL INSIDE’ and MORE.

Naughty Dog’s Playstation-exclusive ‘The Last of Us Part II’ is out in just two weeks from now.

The game has been in development since 2014 and was officially announced during the Playstation Experince in December 2016 and confirmed to be a sequel to the original 2013 release. That trailer revealed the return of both Ellie and Joel.

Five years have passed since the first game and Ellie is now 19 years old, also the main character, who already in the first game was playable for some sections, though Joel (who should by now be in his mid-fifties) was the primary playable character.

No further delays will occur, so mark your calendars for June, 19th.

After months of speculations, nevertheless most intense in the past weeks, a PS5 reveal event was officially announced by Sony. It was scheduled for Thursday and a first look at the next generation Playstation games was confirmed.

However, due to the circumstances, it is now being postponed, as announced by Sony on Twitter:

[GAMING] THE PS5 CONTROLLER REVEALED AND NAMED

THAT is the PlayStation 5 controller, titled DualSense, as presented yesterday on the PlayStation blog.

It’s still wireless and along the new features we’ll find “haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.”

Strong battery life, lighter in weight, no “Share” button (implemented first by Sony in DualShock 4 – the PlayStation 4’s controller), but a new “Create” button feature that is “once again pioneering new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy for themselves. We’ll have more details on this feature as we get closer to launch.”

Built-in microphone array and ” a two-toned design. Additionally, we changed the position of the light bar that will give it an extra pop. On DualShock 4, it sat on the top of the controller; now it sits at each side of the touch pad, giving it a slightly larger look and feel.”.

Sony said that they went “through several concepts and hundreds of mockups over the last few years”

The reveal ends with a message from SIE President & CEO Jim Ryan to the community where he mentions that: ” I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020.”.

No pricetag, a precise release date, console design nor launch line-up are known as of now and everything you’ll read regarding those around the web are merely speculations. There are online stores that have a price for pre-orders but remember that these are only placeholders. You’ll know the exact price when it’s official announced.
