mood posted a topic in Technology NewsSony has 25 PS5 games in the works, including characters you’ve never seen That’s a lot of games Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Sony is apparently looking to release more than 25 PlayStation 5 games under its PlayStation Studios brand. And “nearly half” of them will not be sequels or spinoffs, according to Wired’s interview with PlayStation Studio lead (and former Guerrilla Games managing director) Hermen Hulst. That could theoretically be a lot more games than the four first-party Sony titles we already know about: Horizon Forbidden West (2021) Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (June 2021) God of War: Ragnarok (2021) Gran Turismo 7 (2022) Twenty-one additional games could be a huge shot in the arm for the PS5, especially considering how slowly exclusives are trickling out; Gran Turismo has already slipped to next year. Sony also may not be completely on the hook for producing all of the games that are unaccounted for, though. The PlayStation Studios branding is a bit murky. When it was first announced, Eric Lempel, the head of global marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment, told GamesIndustry.biz that the branding “doesn’t mean that we outright own the developer, but it just means we brought it up as a first-party. In a lot of cases we don’t own the developer.” Wired specifically name-drops indie games from outside studios partnered with Sony, including the upcoming Kena: Bridge of Spirits, and a game from Haven Studios. It’s unclear whether those and similar titles will be counted toward the more-than-25 figure. Sony didn’t immediately respond to a request for clarification. Also, if Haven Studios doesn’t sound familiar, it’s because it was just formed in March when noted industry figure Jade Raymond left Google when it shut down its in-house Stadia development studios. That speaks to the idea that we many not be seeing some of these games for quite a while. Hulst did mention that some of the games would be small, however, likely taking less development time. That, along with the fact that many of the games won’t be part of existing franchises, is exciting for non-AAA aficionados like myself and could help relieve worries that it’ll take a decade for all these games to come out. And while the games may not all be first-party games, that’s not necessarily a bad thing: Returnal was a PlayStation Studios game made by an outside developer, and it’s an example of an original game that’s received a lot of praise since its release. It’s also worth noting that these games won’t necessarily be exclusive to the PS5. MLB: The Show 21 is a PlayStation Studios game that’s available on Xbox, and Horizon Zero Dawn has gotten a (somewhat troubled) PC port. Sony has also said it’s interested in bringing more of its games to the PC in the future. There are also, of course, games that will come out for PS4 as well as PS5: we know that Forbidden West will be released on the older PlayStation. Even with all the caveats, it’s exciting to hear that Sony is working on a slate of games for the PS5, likely far beyond what we’ve already heard about. With Sony’s latest earnings report indicating that it’s sold 7.8 million PS5s, there are a lot of customers who will be looking for experiences that justify the cost of the PS5, and it seems like Sony is trying to make sure it’s got its bases covered.

List of every PS5 game that supports ray tracing This list will continue to grow as the years go on and more developers unlock the full potential of the PS5. Source: Sony One of the most exciting PS5 features, along with its near-instant loading times, is its ability to support ray tracing. For those who are unfamiliar, ray tracing is a complicated rendering technique that produces more realistic lighting effects by imitating light in a natural environment. It can be quite taxing even on powerful PCs, but on the PS5 ray tracing is enabled for a number of different titles already, some of which are the best PS5 games you can play. Most games that feature quality and performance modes only support ray tracing in their quality modes (these will sometimes be referred to as a favor graphics mode, resolution mode, or quality mode). If you choose a mode that favors performance (sometimes referred to as its frame rate mode), you usually won't be getting ray tracing. There are exceptions to this rule, like Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, which offers ray tracing capabilities in both its graphics and performance modes. In this case you may see discrepancies with how ray tracing is implemented and how well, but it still renders for both.

Anticipated resolution and frame rates may change at launch. We've also compiled a list of every PS5 game that supports DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers along with a list of PS5 games that support 120FPS. If you've yet to test out what the DualSense can truly do, I highly recommend checking out Astro's Playroom, which comes packed in with every PS5 console. It's a masterful showcase of the incredible engineering Sony pulled off. Source: List of every PS5 game that supports ray tracing
Mach1 posted a topic in Technology NewsAdoption rates are liable to plummet if Sony does not patch this bug quickly Facepalm: I have a policy when it comes to electronics: Never be the first to own. It seems there are always a few bugs that need ironing out after a few million people have tested the device. Sony is in a terrible pickle with a severe launch day bug that has users factory resetting their consoles and wiping their drives. Less than a day after launch, PlayStation 5 owners are already reporting a console-breaking bug. Glitches and quirks are not uncommon problems for early adopters, but this one is incredibly annoying and troublesome because a factory reset seems to be the only fix for it. The problem occurs when a user tries to download certain games or apps. Instead of starting the download as normal, the PS5 will do one of two things. Either it will present a "Queued for download" message without starting the download process, or it will show an error message. In both instances, it will prompt the user to check the Downloads queue, but nothing will be there. Since the download menu is where you go to cancel a download, the bug essentially puts the game in a state of limbo. Users cannot select it to be downloaded because the PS5 thinks it's already in the queue, and they cannot cancel the download because it does not appear in the queue. Another weird quirk about the bug is that the game or app in question becomes both purchased and unpurchased simultaneously. Looking into the PS5 library will show the game as owned, but in the PlayStation Store, it's listed as unowned. IGN notes that a large number of reports, including some of its staff, have discovered the bug when trying to download the PS5 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (PS4 version downloads fine). Other software users have reported the bug showing up for Demon's Souls, Spider-Man: Remastered, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and the Disney+ app. As for CoD, Activision support suggests performing a factory reset on the console, and this seems to work. So it may work on other titles as well. The one caveat (and it is a major one) is that a factory reset wipes all settings and any games stored on the drive. Obviously, it's not an ideal solution by any stretch of the imagination. However, for now, it is the only known workaround. Sony has not responded to requests for comment. Source
