I don't get scalpers, I had a look online the other day for ps5s and there was twice as many (actually more) then when I was looking a few months ago, and it was as easy as going in store and asking about the next shipment, I hope fellow NZ gamers followed the same route.

Actually I lied... the only one I played was Blood Dragon. Otherwise the rest of have looked uninteresting.

2. GT7
3. GoW Ragnarok
4. Uncharted Collection (probably counts, idk?)
5. MLB 22
6. Spidey 2
7. Wolverine
8. The Last of Us multiplayer
9. Bend Studio's new IP
10. Haven Studios' new IP (multiplayer)
11. Firewalk Studios' new IP (multiplayer)
12. Deviation Games' new IP
13. Santa Monica Studio's 2nd game (Cory Barlog's next game)

15. London Studio's game (multiplayer)
16. Pixelopus' next game (using UE5)
17. Sucker Punch's next game
18. Housemarque's next game
19. Bluepoint's next game ("original content")
20. Team Asobi's next game (more Astro Bot?)
21. Firesprite's next game (seemed to be a Horizon VR spin off)
22. Firesprite's 2nd game (seemed to be a multiplayer shooter)
23. whatever the f*** Media Molecule do
+ Star Wars KOTOR remake (not sure if that counts?)


Then the rumors & speculation..

24. Helldivers 2 from Arrowhead - from the Nvidia Geforce leak.. unconfirmed but possible.
25. The Last of Us remake / Part II remaster - from the Jason Schreier article.. unconfirmed but possible.
26. new IP from Naughty Dog - could be being created/directed by Shaun Escayg? Probably in pre-pro until TLOU mp ships.
27. 3rd game from Insomniac - they are hiring for multiplayer. We don't know what Marcus Smith is directing next (after R&C Rift Apart.)
28. Twisted Metal - rumored to be in dev by Lucid Games. Claims it will be free to play and related to the TV show. Who knows?
29. Bloodborne remaster - rumored to be coming to PS5 and PC from Bluepoint
30. Probably some random PS5 VR launch game made by an external studio

Cerny also discussed the considerations that had to be made when including the PS4 library in the PlayStation 5.

“Backwards compatibility is difficult because there are hundreds of essential GPU features in PlayStation 4 that the developers rely on, and for their games to run flawlessly on PlayStation 5, each of those features need to be properly included.

“We also need to insulate the games from the new PlayStation 5 capabilities. There was a case early on where we ran a multi-million selling PlayStation 4 game on PlayStation 5 and found out that the player character was suddenly just running too fast.

“What was happening was the power of PlayStation 5 was translating into higher frame-rate and it broke gameplay. So to fix that bug we had to put in knobs that would allow us to dial-in just how much performance that game could handle.”

Got the PS5 at Walmart for Walmart plus members only. $537 after taxes. Hopefully it gets shipped asap. It says on the site that it should arrive by Dec. 10.

First order of business - Demon's Souls remake, Returnal, Rift Apart, Miles/Spiderman remastered if you haven't played them, then the director's cuts of Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding if you haven't played them either. All run extremely well.

I used to be a big fan of TrueAchievements and TrueTrophies, but they're so ad filled now, they're difficult to navigate without being annoyed. I'll have to check this one out.

Watching Maximilian Dood play Bloodborne again... Please Sony and Bluepoint I beg of you. Do a Remake in the style of Demon's Souls. Love this game but the 30fps is eye bleed.
