For the Players
The attitude of PS5 is the same – For the Players – that marked its previous models of the PlayStation gaming consoles, only that this is no longer the tagline. This time PlayStation has chosen to let the games do the speaking, not the company. The new PS5 celebrates everything that a gamer is crazy about PlayStation.
The line-up of games that PS5 offers has familiar faces such as Sackboy, Ratchet, Aloy, and Spider-Man. This goes on to prove that in an hour-long slot, the Sony IPs have few rivals. But with PS5, Sony brings fresh IPs, a diverse range of characters, interesting indies, and storytelling.
Both style & games
Until the launch of PS5, Sony has been quiet about the novelties it was to unveil to its fans. The launch of PS5 focused more on the games than on the console. The inimitable style of Sony’s offerings and the power of its games were on full display. While Horizon Zero Dawn 2 and Resident Evil 8 stole the show, new IPs and indies rekindled old curiosity. But what finally seals the deal for Sony is the PS5 and its beautiful and sensuous design, with all the curves, blue lights, and styling.
Variety of experiences
Most Sony watchers were apprehensive that it might once again make the same mistakes that it made with the PS3 launch model. That was when the games released along with the PS5 launch were yet to be seen. The few glimpses of the games that came to the PlayStation fans had sharply divided their opinions. Clearly, Sony has learned its lessons as the games launched along with PS5 puts Sony in the top league once again. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an exciting title while Ratchet & Clank is a family-friendly platform that is quite a nice gift to this generation. Horizon Forbidden West brings a more serious and cerebral drama.

The launch event of PS5 that lasted a little over an hour was the most convincing argument that the gamers’ community should now be prepared to dive into the future of gaming with its game guide. You can call it the next generation of gaming. There is a lot of strong and exciting news and elements about the future of gaming inbuilt in the new games launched by Sony. Most of them could have come on the current generation of consoles as well. Nevertheless, Sony has put up a strong show that highlights its diverse range of games in the pipeline. These also cut across the age barrier and also the subversive theme that is predominant in the gaming business.
