1Getting a PS5? You’ll Want These Games to Show it Off

Spider-Man Miles Morales 2

The PS5 is finally here. Well, if you live in certain parts of the world, it is – others have to wait a little while longer.

Packing in some serious hardware, including a start-of-the-art SSD, the PS5 is surely going to provide us gamers with some sensational experiences in the coming years. But what about now? If you’ve been lucky enough to secure a PS5 for launch, what games should you pick up that demonstrate its power and provide hours of fun?

We’ve played most of the games launching alongside the PS5, and hopefully we can steer you towards the best. Some of these are available exclusively on PS5, while others you might already own on PS4 and will be able to download the PS5 version at no additional cost. But they all offer something that will give you that next-gen feel. These are the best PS5 launch games.
