The official PlayStation 5 website has gone live, but it may as well not have bothered. Move along, folks. There’s nothing to see here.
The official PlayStation 5 website went live yesterday. You can find it here: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/explore/ps5/
It features a PS5 logo, a newsletter sign-up form, and a grand total of 67 words. Of those 67 words, the words “PlayStation” and “PS5” appear three times each.
“PlayStation 5 is coming,” proclaims the header. (We knew that, thanks.)
“Launches holiday 2020,” the sub-heading says. (We also knew that, but it’s good of you to make sure, Sony.)
“We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation,” it continues. (No kidding.)
“Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games,” the statement concludes, followed by the aforementioned newsletter sign-up form.
That’s it. Honestly, that’s the whole thing. Now if Sony could just give us something tangible, like an image of the thing so people will stop sharing those awful amateur-hour renders, that would be lovely.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
