IGN published this video item, entitled “Sony’s Feb State of Play Left a Lot On the Table – Next-Gen Console Watch” – below is their description.
Welcome back to Next-Gen Console Watch, our show following everything PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. This week, we dive in right after Sony’s State of Play stream, showing off a ton for PS5. We got a long look at Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Integrade’s new PS5 gameplay, PS5 upgrades, photo mode, PS5 performance mode with 4k or 60 fps options, and it’s new character, Yuffie. Arkhane’s Deathloop also showed off some PS5 gameplay, as well as it’s Dishonored roots. Returnal came out big with a notable PS5 gameplay breakdown and explanation but left us with many questions. We got Sifu PS5 gameplay, more on Solar Ash, a great PS5 gameplay look at the gorgeous Kena: Bridge of Spirits, an update on Oddworld: Soulstorm, and a look at Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time’s PS5 update.
And that’s it for this edition of Next Gen Console Watch. Thank you for watching! We’ll be back next Friday at 6AM Pacific, 9AM Eastern with more PS5 and Xbox Series X news. See you then.
