IGN reports 26 games were shown including Horizon 2 (Horizon Forbidden West), Spiderman Miles Morales, Resident Evil 8: Village, NBA 2K21, and much more. But that wasn’t all that was shown in the live-streamed event, Sony also showcased the console for the PS5.
Though memes have spread all over on how the look of the PS5 is reminiscent of a router as famously shown here!

There will be two versions of the PS5, a disc-less version, and one that accepts disc at ultra HD Blu-ray. Forbes estimates the price will range from $450 to $500.
