This week Sony gave us a huge update and preorder details for the highly anticipated PlayStation 5. Well…as of publishing…the PS5 preorders have come and gone. By that I mean the major sites such as Best Buy, Amazon, and Wal-Mart are already showing sold out. Sony, however, has vowed that they will deliver more for preorder and they will be available for pickup or delivery by the November 12th release date.
So here’s what we know so far. PlayStation 5 will come in two versions with two different price points. The PS5 is priced at $499 and comes with an Ultra 4K BluRay player for those dedicated to discs. The PS5 Digital is priced at $399 and will feature no disc drive for those preferring to download their games onto the hard drive. Surprisingly, they don’t come with a terabyte of storage like the PS4 Pro did but has something that I believe will crush the upcoming XBOX Series X. Both PlayStations feature an 825GB SSD drive. “What does that mean for me” you ask? Basically an SSD or Solid State Drive, uses less energy to load and perform which eliminates lag times. It allows game designers to give you maps that have zero load time from area to area. Think of Skyrim or Red Dead Redemption 2 with 3-4 times the area and no lag in rendering or gameplay. The SSD can be easily upgraded for more storage should you need it but this will be a game changer for console players.
Lastly, I would be an asshole if I didn’t talk about the catalog of games that will be available at release. Here’s what we’ve seen so far:
Just Dance 2021
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Sackboy: A Big Adventure
Along with these titles, retro titles will be provided in the PlayStation Store such as God of War (super excited about this), The Last of Us Remastered and a ton of other classic titles. Check back as we get close to launch date for more updates!
The world of pop culture is still feeling the after effects of the DC Fandome and our favorite villainous squad are jumping from the page to the screen to the next generation of video game consoles.
The Nowhere California team will be diving deep into the first images from “The Suicide Squad” movie, but we have to take a look at the next game from the creative minds behind the legendary Arkham City franchise, Rocksteady Studios.
The members of Task Force X have entered the battle damage city limits of Metropolis, they have one mission and one goal. The mission is to eliminate a target and their goal is to get time erased from their prison sentences, but there is one huge problem and that is the target. Harley Quinn (voiced by Tara Strong), Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark (voiced by WWE superstar Samoa Joe) have to take down Superman. Will the goal outweigh the mission? Also, from the title of the game, we can only imagine that the team will have a lot more on their plates.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will not hit stores until 2022, but this first look has given the world something to be excited for and is given me a reason to possibly upgrade my current video game system.
