Sony Interactive Entertainment has finally announced the price and launch dates for the PlayStation 5. And with it, the company has also confirmed the console’s list of launch titles. And for better or worse, it’s a pretty short list.
Most of these will be first party titles too. First up is Astro’s Playroom, which is pre-installed in every PS5. Then there’s the Demon’s Souls remake, Destruction All Stars, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and its Ultimate Edition, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
One launch title that isn’t a first party game is Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. And as is seemingly tradition with every special edition, this comes with Vergil as a playable character. Capcom also says he will be made available as DLC for current-gen owners of the game.
Another non-first-party title is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. With its release date being 13 November, it is still technically a launch title as many markets won’t be getting the PlayStation 5 until 19 November.
Prices are where things get a little contentious though. DMC5SE will be priced at US$39.99, and the same goes for Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Sackboy is the only one priced at the conventional US$59.99. The others, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, will come with a US$69.99 price tag.
