After teasing us, delays and so many terribly fake leaks the PS5 controller, console and a handful of games have finally been revealed properly. I have been a happy PlayStation 4 owner with so many triple AAA titles still yet to play as I balance my PS4, Nintendo Switch, Gaming PC and LIFE! However, I was happy to see a glimpse of what the PS5 will offer and these are my picks for the 5 most exciting announcements during the PS5 reveal.
The cat lover in me stood up at attention when the trailer “Stray” was revealed. “Stray is a third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly.”
The PS5 Console
We say the PS5 controller a long time ago but the console itself remained under covers. I wasn’t disappointed with the reveal as it is as sleek and futuristic as the controller. I cant see how anyone could think any other console looks better than the PS5 – I can’t wait to unbox it! I am torn on whether I will get the console with or without the optical drive – I’ll make another post about the pros and cons in the future.
Gran Turismo 7
The Gran Turismo series is one of a handful of iconic series that I have grown up with. AT some point “life” happened though and I missed out on playing all GT titles after GT4. Seeing Gran Turismo announced for the PS5 brought me real joy, I’m not much of a competitive racer but I really like GT’s brand of simulated driving and I can’t wait to fall back in love with the series.
Spider-man Miles Morales
Miles Morales is the Spider-man I wash I had when I was growing up. Technically we never stop growing so I intend to continue to follow my teen-aged dreams through the eyes for Miles. The movie was one of my favourite superhero movies and animations ever and while I didn’t play the critically acclaimed Spiderman for PS4 (I might pick it up eventually) I will DEFINITELY be playing Spider-man Miles Morales on the PS5 on launch day.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Kena: Bridge of Spirits looks like an interesting adventure game that is taking queues from other popular titles but might just have enough originality to stand on its own. I got some real Lord of the Rings vibes when I heard “You have no power here, Kena,” during the trailer and I am excited to watch this game develop until release. “Travel with Kena, a young Spirit Guide on a quest to uncover the mysterious story surrounding the demise of the village.”
