The Sony PlayStation 5 Recap | Summer of Gaming

by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

hello my name is Jeffrey L Wilson lead analyst at PC Mag calm today I'm joined by Jess Joe Howe and you were a minor and we're going to discuss the recently unveiled playstation 5 and all the announced games Getty US Jordan first question console itself yeah well we complained for years and all these consoles just like boring black boxes and Sony clearly hurt us we put out this thing that looks like one of the clone aliens from episode 2 yeah yeah it has a very I was as someone who's not a console gamer I'm more in a PC side and

I have our Nintendo switch I don't really have a dog in this race but I really did kind of like the fat like you said that they kind of strayed away from the typical you know rectangular box it has like nope kind of weird edges and you know blue white and black kind of colors game but Jesse you saw it just just before we start recording would you think it is I like I picked up through Twitter a lot of the news but like I did not watch but what I will say so I do games coverage but I also do sex and relationship coverage and a specifically high tech like sex toys and the minute I

Saw that PS 5 I was like that looks like the latest and female pleasure it's it's like it would it's it's curvy let's it's curvy but then it's the design I'm intrigued I guess is the best word for it I can be generally controller optics control sticks controlling you know I just think they're they're leaning in I'm interested I'm intrigued so you've got my attention that's a good thing people were talking about no new parents if you if you another another rectangular box will be really be exactly yeah I can't imagine the Xbox isn't gonna be just that you know I do

Imagine it's gonna just look like another oh yeah it's a huge it's just a huge like right we do yeah yeah yes we see a server and some back of a closet somewhere and in terms of know the game reveals Sony's a presentation was about it was over an hour what was it two hours that's like a low or an hour little they showed a mix of first party stuff some third party stuff some some triple-a stuff mid tier some indie stuff Jordin anything catch your eye well I was and I still am really excited for spider-man Miles Morales

So I thought that ps4 spider-man was pretty cool and Miles Morales is a dope character and just the trailer just reminds me that hip hop and spider-man imagery are just such a potent combination but now today there's been a lot of confusion over whether or not it's standalone well today hasn't when we're recording they might clear it clarified this but um there's lot confusion over whether or not it's like DLC or like you know how standalone it is you know like it's only been two years it's a launch title so like they did it being not being a full-fledged

Spider-man to like I get but they're they're the way than the kind of advertisement has been a little confusing yeah a Sony executive says it was that Miles Morales was partly the remastered spider-man for ps5 and that was a part of it but then you know Jason shear over at Bloomberg got a quote saying that is actually a standalone game it's smaller in scope but it's still a full full-fledged like standalone game it's interesting to me I've actually written about this about how a lot of like stories for people that have been marginalized whether it's

Like women or LGBTQ people or people of color or any combination of those things like always get sequestered into a dlc almost always at first like you know that left behind for Last of Us it was like oh well give le her DLC and then like also Naughty Dog I loved it Lost Legacy but it originally started as an uncharted 4 DLC and then they were like oh that's too big we gotta make its own game which I really appreciate actually because it was a great game and it was 200 color leads create freedom cries yeah exactly it's always DLC like what I

Should tell us something yeah there was was there was this game for ps3 pretty early in his life salt cycle called it's called Starhawk oh yeah but that kind of came out and gathered no traction it was the same year where those assassins to read Creed Vita game to freedom fries which people loved that was a great game that was liver liberation was liberation when the for right right so you're right it's always like you know here's this I hate it cause secondary content because a lot of work is going through these things but it's never the main dish it's very delicious appetizer or dessert but

Not the main dish and and hopefully you know with all these developers and publishers talking that really good talk right about it okay that will change in the future for for for people of all walks of life but Jeff what about white women with kind of indigenous aesthetic and dreads in weird robot future lands oh no that with horizon forbidden West that definitely got a sequel everyone everyone kept tell me like your girl Wow tagging is they be like oh my god have you put I'm like what is this this game isn't about and it's like kind of about women it's like about like I don't know

A robot mom I don't really know I have no idea I don't know i don't i don't actually know but it is has some sort of motherhood feels like you'll love it like where is it hidden i can't find it but and and yeah and and i can't get over her being alloy and everyone's name being a a like metal but pronounced wrong like I don't understand that okay they're all have like really bizarre like tech related or like it's like I don't know I just decided within the whole world it looks beautiful I will not like take

That away from it looks gorgeous but like at this point like that doesn't catch my eye anymore honestly I was really interested in what I saw on Twitter about a cat with a backpack can anybody explain that to me oh yeah it's called stray I think yeah there's like all these robot homeless people and you're a cat and then I there was another one minute I'm catching up on the news this is real time folks all the time yeah there was there was a good mix in that show I thought of Sony's like like big guns and smaller things and I'm kind of like glad we're in a state in

The gaming space where there's Lily game types were for everyone now you could have like the big blockbuster experience you could have a nice mid tier or you have a really in the experience and none necessarily are better immersive than the other is Wes you're which are into bug snacks from Octodad eating bugs that are all it's like Amy Viva Pinata boy so let me ask you um there was no price announced for ps5 this game is not that I mean the system's not that far away is that the issue or these parties are as Microsoft and Sony playing a game of chicken team yeah here to go first I

Think yes and yes and I also feel like I mean like yeah it's not that far away and like some people would have to start saving now to afford that you know I think and that's like a huge part of accessibility problem you know PC games is a whole other issue in terms of accessibility in terms of price point but confidence are our go-to right so like that's gonna really affect I think who these games are available to the price point and it just being like this thing that they're not talking about is like not you at all because that yeah yeah they're there so there's a model

With a disk drive and a mile without we will assume the wealth out of this Drive I will be cheaper but then you'll stop your on to storage issues right right isn't call of duty the latest one is a modern warfare that's had about almost a terabyte of updates yeah yeah and if you're if you're if you're relying on strictly a disk liske system you're gonna have to buy you must stack up on external hard drives and whatever unless this thing somehow has magically a tremendous amount of storage built in or they somehow figure out cloud gaming so if Google can't figure it now it

Might be a hard sell um yeah geez were excited about um what I was excited about was def loop hmm it's it's published by honored people right and this grindhouse movie vibe about these two it's two black assassins who were just like going and trying to kill each other I remember it was a III trailer last year I believe that showed a lot of gameplay and it has like a gimmick about no dying and being reborn so mr. groundhogs day with no they kept going back and forth yeah they were like your choice yeah that sounds really interesting again I only I saw mostly

The cat backpack so I'm excited for that I was excited for the Resident Evil 8 Village trailer I compared Resident Evil I don't know those make any sense I would say Resident Evil is a Sylvester Stallone a video game and that when it's good he's really good and had like some like some real artistry sometimes but it's also very prolific and a lot of it's not good but resonable 7 I thought was really good and this looks like a follow-up to that with that kind of first-person style and the main character from that so yeah we've had you've had these these remakes sorry 2 &

3 but to kind of get back more to that re7 style I think looks greeny and just the whole village setting looks so much like re for to me that it makes the idea of remaking re for seeing like even more pointless also like racism isn't that but with a game where no are you 500 re for their speaking Spanish but they're like yeah aren't they and available it's like it's like a white dude going into like a spanish-speaking village and like just killing a bunch of it's like a Spain Spanish okay yeah I guess it's mine but but yeah in general I think like they're

They're coming up to that point where they're like hmm it's gonna get uncomfortable for us to remake these games so when you sort of we saw the initial moments of the trailer did you did you get a sense that it was re because a lot of rumors a lot of rumors floating around about a new new Silent Hill I didn't unfortunately not I will never trust again after that PC is my favorite video game of all time anyone who doesn't think that's a video game come fist fight me but what's the what's the debate about it not being because it's a playable trailer it's not a video

Game I've been Cribs so much from PT you know we have we opt everything that has been good at horror games so yeah I can't believe we gave that up for test stranding topic entirely but uh but yeah that's that is disappointing and like we've it's definitely been hinted at and like I'm done being teased you know like I'm done trusting so let me ask you um what we know of the Xbox so far what we know of the new Sony machine so far if you were going to pick a platformer just fall what which go with I have a bunch of Xbox controllers still

I'm really not sold on either one of them that strongly I didn't get an Xbox I didn't get an Xbox until even like I didn't get either I don't get that at launch either like I kind of I've waited till cheaper and there was just a more compelling library unless this job presents a good enough yes I've always an I mean I started out actually like 360 Xbox was like my first like new that generation console and I find it that controller like is not built for lady small hands and all I had to like like grab it like this they've made it better since ever I've heard but like my

Girlfriend calls it brolic yeah I can't do like the dual like you have to have like grip it it was a horrible thing and and I just didn't really felt that PlayStation has Sony rather has always courted more of like people that are interested in indie games I know Xbox has made efforts but um if you're someone who's into narrative games I think it's like the exclusives on PlayStation or JIT like it's all Naughty Dog games I mean like I don't know if I could just its journey you know it's a bunch of different historically at least we haven't seen it I don't know

Actually I don't know I don't know what exclusives they have in this original slate but um it just feels like they always pay more attention to what I care about in terms of exclusives you know I don't care about Halo and that's what it comes down to when you're buying a console in my opinion the like the specs when you're a console gamer I don't think the specs really are what's gonna sell you are you are you not concerned about many teraflops that it has high rate racing on Clank yes of course I'm very concerned so in terms of in terms of features yeah what do you look for in

Terms of features from a console does the xbox is backwards compatibility or in play anywhere appeal to you the Sony's new Tec with you know they're saying that can drastically reduce loading times with your new SSD Tec does that sway you in any way yeah that's an interesting question I think for me the features like the backward some compound compatibility thing if I can learn real learn English is to me like that should absolutely just be there if we're all both of them and it's outrageous but it's not and that that's a feature but

That would but it wouldn't be enough for me too because they're always making remasters anyway and if I love a game enough to replay it I'm probably gonna buy the remaster and for its like for me it would the loading screen that that does to me influenced more of your experience which is like it is kind of like when you're immersed in a thing and then you have a loading screen you're just totally taken out of it and and I think that would be actually an interesting thing that we could present to developers in terms of an interesting like design edition you know like I

Think that to me features that would influence how developers design or their ability to design experiences is what I would be looking for yeah I talk about Ratchet and Clank but um the in was I got a rift apart the way they're like hopping between these like wholly different scenarios like on the fly people are saying feels like I'm showing off with the kind of the new SSD stuff but I'm to your question Jeff yeah like I think Microsoft historically has been a better kind of software company and I think stuff like backwards compatibility and the smart delivery where if you buy

The Xbox one version you just get the series X version and game pass being pretty cool those are pretty compelling but yeah it's just the actual games like you know exclusive games are gonna win up more for people like I don't I don't care about Demon Souls but for people who do like that remake is gonna you know yeah that's something that only Sony has it's also tricky because you know at these events at these reveals oh you'll see a game presented during Sony's event or Microsoft not quite sure if it'll appear elsewhere it's like is this really an

Exclusive or is it going to jump ship in about a year or so yeah and the timed exclusive like what does that even mean it's like Oh for a month it's gonna come out on the place station first and what okay right it's it's it's it's wild and I really hope that when these consoles launch they'll at least both be under 500 bucks it's wild it's Wow well yeah Sony's box looks good a couple of interesting looking games to come out the gate so yeah I'm looking forward to the fall and seeing which games hit the platform and hopefully we get an

Announcement for price um what I'm also Loki would be surprised of all this stuff going around going on the world right now pushes like a last minute delay I mean even Apple is is delaying the 12 right the iPhone 12 Apple is I'm pretty sure delaying the iPhone 12 specifically because of production line interruptions so I can't imagine I mean they all you know make their hardware in China I'm assuming but it's probably a pretty good assumption so like it's so dependent on on what happens it depend mi can nobody knows that's a good point because quite a few of those games that

Were announced that no science reveal were 20 21 games GTA yeah the new stuff for GTA 5 GTA 5 finally yeah we've been waiting slot off like a quarter of my life has been spent talking about in GTA 5 I know but yeah and desta Sony we're we're gonna see what's gonna happen in a few months whether word microsoft Duke it out and we get happy gamers across the world I'm Jeff Wilson yes just Joe ho Jordan miner see you next time
