Sony launched the PlayStation 5 in the United States last week, but now the next-gen console has arrived in Europe as well. It marks the end of an extremely long week for most of our readers, but the beginning of an exciting period for the iconic brand. We’ve played the new console to death already, and to complement your release day experience, we’ve compiled all of our content in one place. Whether you’re waiting for work to end, patiently anticipating a package, or just wondering where to get started – here’s all of our PS5 coverage in one place.

PS5 Launch Round Up

Below you’ll find a list of all of our major PS5 launch content, but don’t forget there’s a wealth of other news articles and opinion to find on the homepage.


PS5 Launch Europe Round Up 1


PS5 Launch Europe Round Up 2
  • Astro's Playroom PS5 Review
    Astro’s Playroom is deserving of every single superlative you’re likely to hear associated with it. As a platformer, it’s a varied and entertaining experience that’s constantly introducing new and exciting ideas over the course of its campaign. And as a DualSense tech demo, it’s similarly effective at showcasing the power and potential of Sony’s new hardware. But perhaps above all, this is a love letter to the legacy of PlayStation, and it feels fitting that as we enter an exciting new chapter from an undeniably iconic gaming brand, we take a moment to remember the milestones that got us to this point.
  • Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales PS5 Review
    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is effortlessly cool. The overall gameplay structure may prove samey for those who failed to fall in love with Insomniac Games’ previous effort, but everyone else will have a blast with this generous spin-off story. Great characters, tons of activities, and some epic set-piece moments round out a must play superhero romp – and with the developer on this kind of form, we can’t wait to see more of the full-scale sequel that it’s inevitably cooking up.
  • Demon's Souls PS5 Review
    Teensy quibbles aside, it’s difficult to imagine how this Demon’s Souls remake could be any better. It looks great, it sounds amazing, and it’s extremely respectful of the PS3 original, which has aged surprisingly well after all these years. This is an exceptional remake, and it’s exactly what Demon’s Souls deserves.
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure PS5 Review
    There’s a lot of love been poured into Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and thus it’s hard not to love it back. This is a brilliant platformer with tons of imaginative ideas and a strong sense of style. The lack of online multiplayer at launch is a bit disappointing, but it’s coming as a free update before the end of the year, so we can forgive the developer that. If you’re looking for something bright and breezy to begin your PS5 journey, then this is a near-flawless romp when it’s at its pomp.
  • Planet Coaster: Console Edition PS5 Review
    If you enjoy business management simulations, then we recommend purchasing a ticket for Planet Coaster: Console Edition. While the coaster creation controls can be unwieldy, Frontier’s done a generally decent job of mapping a very complicated title to the DualSense controller. The title allows for a ton of creativity, but time-strapped entrepreneurs can also have fun with the many pre-made assets available. It’s the kind of game where, once you begin building a park, you’re basically pledging the next 30 hours of your life to doing it properly – but once you start seeing those profits rolling, you may find it difficult to quit.
