NEW games coming to the PS5 and PS4 have been leaked ahead of release.
It’s thanks to the USA’s video game rating watchdog, which has reviewed several unconfirmed titles.
The ESRB is responsible for rating games, so that young children don’t end up playing titles with graphic content.
Sometimes the ESRB will publicly rate a game before it’s even been announced.
This typically happens if a game is very close to release but remains unannounced.
Similar leaks happen in the world of iPhone, when Apple devices are registered with tech certification bodies before being announced.
The first is a PS4 game called Katana Zero, as spotted by Comic Book.
It’s a popular 2D platformer that’s actually been out on the Nintendo Switch since 2019.
A PS4 release hasn’t been confirmed, by the ESRB has rated the game for the console nonetheless.
The second game is for the PS5, and it’s called Demon Turf.
Unlike Katana Zero, Demon Turf isn’t currently available anywhere.
However, we’re now expecting the 3D platformer game on PS5 in 2021.
It’s worth noting that information included in ratings isn’t final, and the launch of these games could still change or be pushed back.
In any case, there are plenty more PS5 games on the way this month.
Sony launched two versions of the PlayStation 5 in the US on November 12, and in the UK on November 19.
The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.
They’re up against the Xbox Series X (£449) and Xbox Series S (£249), which hit shelves worldwide November 10.
All four consoles have been sold out around the world, with stock seesawing in and out of availability over the past few weeks.
The PS5 launched with major exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for players to enjoy.
Xbox gamers, on the other hand, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.
PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently offered hope to gamers who wanted a console.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Ryan admitted that stock levels would climb steadily month-on-month.
He added that from July onwards, it will be much easier to get a PS5.
“It will get better every month throughout 2021,” Ryan explained.
“The pace of the improvement in the supply chain will gather through the course of the year.
“So by the time we get to the second half of , you’re going to be seeing really decent numbers indeed.”
In other news, HOAR’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.
Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.
And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
