The PS5 Has Finally Been Revealed, But Sony Hasn’t Shown It’s Full Hand Yet

by | Jun 13, 2020

If you were thinking like us, then your world stopped spinning for a moment when GTA V footage was showcased during the PS5 reveal event. We all thought a GTA 6 reveal was about to happen, but that sadly wasn’t the case. We did get a good look at a diverse offering of games, from AAA games like Spider-Man 2 to little indie games that seemed a little out of place during a major reveal. While it will forever be believed that Sony included those indie games because it didn’t have much else to offer at the time, PlayStation’s Jim Ryan is now saying that what we saw was just the tip of the iceberg.

During an interview with BBC, Ryan was asked about that diverse range of games during the PS5 stream, some of which seemed a little out of place. His response was one that – to some extent – set the record straight as to why some “lesser” games were included in the stream, but what was important is that he’s admitted there are a lot more games currently in development:

“We wanted triple-A games that would fully demonstrate the horsepower of the machine. But some of these smaller games are making very cool and innovative use of the new features of the console. So we allowed the show to give a sense of the sheer range of gameplay experience that will be available on PlayStation 5. And this is just the start. There are so many more games that we have in development.”

With that said, the PS5 console looks downright amazing, and much more futuristic than Xbox’s tall, PC-like tower. However, the design itself hints to previous rumors that Sony was having overheating issues being true. And, we would have certainly loved to see more of what the PS5 can do. Those smaller indie games certainly looked interesting, but it’s a far cry from what we know the PS5 is actually capable of. The good news is that we only saw a small percentage of what’s in the works – we just have to wait a little longer to see more. At least we now have at least some kind of confirmation that the PS5 will still launch for the holiday season this year.
