Baldur's Gate 3 PS5

Baldur's Gate 3 is out now for PS5, and after bagging itself a Metacritic rating of 96 on PC, it's currently doing one point better on Sony's console. The PS5 version currently commands a 97 on the website, making it the highest-rated game on the system to date. The caveat, of course, is this is only based on nine reviews. However, given the widespread love for the RPG, we doubt the rating is going to drop very much.
