The great generational leap of PlayStation 5

One of the big changes of this generation is the Sony console that thinks more about the player experience than the graphics itself. Of course, we find a console that presents spectacular graphics, as we show you in our PlayStation 5 review, but we also find a machine prepared to offer the best player experience.

Among the purchase options we find a digital-only version and a standard version that will include the disk read maintenance. In this way, not only can we enjoy the games of the new generation, but we can even enjoy the titles of past generations. And the best thing is that both consoles will have the same components to always guarantee the best experience.

Also, the best advantage of this new console is the presence of the DualSense. The new Sony controller is a revolution that tries to connect the player with the video game that he decides to try. And it is that thanks to its haptic technology we have a perfect complement to notice even the small steps of our character on any surface.

The games to release PlayStation 5

If you have managed to get a new generation console or you are considering buying it, it is necessary that you take into account the best games to be able to release it. And luckily, Sony has prepared a good launch catalog where we not only find backward compatible titles, but also releases that have been designed for both generations of consoles, such as Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and the return of the hacker saga, Watch Dogs Legion.

But the company has also prepared great exclusive releases for its consoles, having a title that can only be enjoyed on the new generation console and two games that we can overcome on PlayStation 4 and later make the leap to PlayStation 5 thanks to its free update. Next we are going to do a small review of each work to place you in their world.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales | Sony

Demons Souls It is the first great exclusive to PlayStation 5. It is a spectacular proposal in which we can put our skills to the test from the first moment. The remake of the original FromSoftware title has conquered critics and has become one of the favorites to release the new console.

Marvels Spider-Man: Miles Morales It is another of Sony’s great proposals to be able to enjoy the new generation of consoles. With skills that only the great Miles Morales can take advantage of, we find ourselves with an ambitious proposal and with the possibility of getting to know the city from new perspectives. All while fulfilling our role as superheroes.

We are heading to a proposal of platforms and great adventures with Sackboy: A Big Adventure, a proposal that will lead us to meet again with the iconic LittleBigPlanet hero. With immersive controls and lots of action, we will have a colorful world full of obstacles that we must overcome.
