Ghost of Tsushima rumored to release in 2019 via an internal Sony meeting (PSUniverse)

Xbox shifts focus to only one next gen console removing Lockhart from road map (Brad Sams)

  • Rumor has it that devs were making games geared for the lowered end system then upscaling for the high end system which is never as good as native design for high end
  • xCloud progress has gone surprisingly well so a lower end system seemed pointless

List of PS5 launch titles rumored below:…….probably not true but maybe

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla….multi-platform
  • Battlefield Bad Company 3…..multi-platform
  • CoD Black Ops 5…..multi-platform
  • Ghost of Tsushima (remastered)
  • Gran Turismo 7
  • Harry Potter……could be multi-platform
  • Horizon 2
  • The Last of Us 2 (remastered)
  • PUBG Remaster…..multi-platform

Let’s Argue

Was Sony skipping E3 a good or bad choice?  Did Xbox hold back because Sony was not there?
