Sony communication in the run-up to the upcoming release of the PS5 on November 12 sometimes left something to be desired. The presentation of the console in the form of a dust-dry presentation in March was certainly not a highlight.
For a long time, Sony has hardly or not at all commented on backward compatibility, VR cameras and game upgrades and has only been putting some butter on the bread in the last few weeks. The fans obviously didn’t mind, because the pre-order contingents were gone faster than free beer at the shooting festival. Meanwhile we got hold of a copy of the PS5
It is interesting to see that the big console duel this fall is taking place with almost no major launch titles – at least for the Exclusives, things look very meager at both Microsoft and Sony. Astro Bot, Spider-Man 1.5…. Excuse me, Miles Morales and a remake of Demon Souls – that’s not much. But well, everything is a bit strange in this Corona year 2020 and from it, even with earlier console launches, both manufacturers have not exactly covered themselves with fame in terms of launch titles.
Be that as it may, the time will come soon and some players will be holding one of the new PlayStation 5 consoles in their hands for launch day on November 19th
Sony has a head start in the console duel, namely a base of over 100 million PS4 buyers, many of whom will remain loyal to the brand. After the strong Xbox 360 and the failed launch of the Xbox One due to conceptual errors, this has to be attributed to itself. This has one disadvantage, however, because Sony seems to be very sure of its cause. There are basically no changes to the basic concept of the PS4.
While Microsoft is relying heavily on building its Game Pass subscription service and supporting gaming on pretty much all platforms, Sony is currently sticking to its old model.
Console + attractive exclusive titles should continue to make the race. Thanks to titles like The Last of Us, Uncharted, Horizon: Zero Dawn or God of War, this has worked wonderfully so far. The only question is whether Sony won’t lay an egg for itself with this conservative model in the long run.
