“We’re going to have the games do our talking.” That was Sony’s line going into the first major PlayStation 5 event. Months of low-key news drops and technical specs culminated in today, where we finally saw some actual games, including Spider-Man: Miles MoralesGran Turismo 7, and a new full-length Ratchet & Clank. Oh, and uh…Grand Theft Auto V?

We also saw the console itself. Or rather, consoles. There’s a PlayStation 5 with a disc drive, and another without that’s billed as the “Digital Edition.” No word on price yet. Microsoft and Sony are still waiting for the other to flinch on that front, so maybe we’ll find out at Microsoft’s Xbox event in July. Maybe.

You’ll find all of today’s biggest announcements below, and be sure to check back Saturday for our coverage of the PC Gaming Show. Always a favorite around here.

The hardware

Here’s your mandatory hardware sizzle reel. It looks very spiky, and very strange laying down on its side. I can’t say I’m a huge fan, though maybe it would look less bizarre and clam-like in solid black? It’s more exciting than Microsoft’s boring Xbox Series X design, but also much, much riskier—and maybe not in a good way.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V was originally a PlayStation 3 game, a capper to the last generation. Then it got ported to PlayStation 4. And now? It’s one of the first games we’ll see on the next generation. With the community clamoring for Grand Theft Auto VI, Sony instead revealed that Grand Theft Auto V will be “enhanced” for the PlayStation 5. Is Grand Theft Auto V the new Skyrim? Maybe—though who knows, maybe we’ll get Skyrim on next-gen consoles as well.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Hey, Insomniac is making a new Spider-Man! And it stars Miles Morales! And that’s probably enough to sell you on the idea, which is good because this teaser trailer barely shows anything else! The last Spider-Man was one of the PlayStation 4’s most impressive games on a technical level, and I’m looking forward to seeing an upgraded Manhattan on PlayStation 5.

Gran Turismo 7

It wouldn’t be next-gen without a car game, of course. We got our first look at the long-awaited Gran Turismo 7, and it looks…like a racing sim. I can’t say today’s footage looks any better than Project CARS running on a high-end PC, but hey, it’s like that high-end Project CARS footage runs on a $500-ish PC now, and that’s not bad.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Sony’s trotting out all the old favorites. Next on the list was Ratchet & Clank, which Insomniac barely touched for the entirety of the PlayStation 4. Pretty surprising to see it pop up here, with Rift Apart. The big news is that the PlayStation 5’s loading times apparently allow Ratchet and Clank to teleport from planet to planet near-instantaneously. There’s still what looks like a disguised loading screen (in the form of a rift) but it’s way faster than anything this generation—even on PC, where loading times tend to be shorter.

  1. Whats up! I simply would like to give an enormous thumbs up for the nice information you’ve right here on this post. I might be coming back to your weblog for extra soon.

  2. The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, however I truly thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you would repair in case you werent too busy in search of attention.
