PlayStation 5 hype appears to have infected even John Oliver, who mentioned the next-gen system in the latest episode Last Week Tonight. Segueing from a story about crazy crowds, Oliver suggests that “trampling” should only be allowed on Thanksgiving and “whatever day in the future the PS5 comes out”.

He explains: “I don’t care that it looks like an alien’s wafflemaker or a penguin designed by Apple, it’s going to have Horizon Forbidden West as an exclusive release, and I will stomp anyone who stands between me and that game. I want to murder dinosaur robots with flaming arrows and I want to do it now.”
