Here's everything that happened at the PS5 Future of Gaming event, including a look at the actual PS5!


Demon’s Souls won ‘E3’

After folks brought out their pitchforks during the recent Xbox Series X event for not showing enough gameplay, Sony pretty much only showed gameplay today for their “Future of Gaming” PS5 stream: with some cinematic panache thrown in for good measure.

There’s a lot to unpack today. PS5 games are coming as soon as “holiday 2020,” which is when the PS5 actually arrives. A few bangers like Spider-Man: Miles Moralesare going to hit that same window (possibly as launch titles), and several are slated for 2021 and 2022. We’ve gathered up a convenient list for you to peruse below: it’s going to take a while.

The big highlights are probably the Demon’s Soulsremake (the best Souls, do not“at” me), as well as confirmation of the long-rumored “Resident Evil Villlage/Resident Evil VIII” project from Capcom. Others like Pragmatalook like they’re going to slot in nicely, as is the very expected Horizon Zero Dawn sequel Forbidden West.

We also got a good look at the actual PS5 hardware today. It looks like it was designed straight out of the Bubblegum Crisisuniverse, and will sport a “standard edition” as well as a “digital edition” with no disc drive.

We still don’t know a lot yet. We don’t have a price point and we don’t have a date. But we are slowly getting there by the grace of the Dripfeed Gods.
