A new console generation begins. Here’s a quick rundown on the first week of new PlayStation Store releases to include games for the PS5.
We reported on the Xbox Series X launch lineup at the weekend. So how does the first week of the PlayStation 5 compare? As with much about the new console generation, it’s hard to take a firm view without making a few caveats. But, at first blush, the PS5 is stronger out of the gate.
Having a sparkling version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales doesn’t hurt, nor does a beautiful remaster of Demon’s Souls. Add in a host of existing games to get next-gen updates – No Man’s Sky is the one we’re most keen to try – and there’s plenty for new PS5 owners to play. And that’s not to mention the excellent Astro’s Playroom pack-in, or the arrival of Bugsnax as a free PlayStation Plus game.
PlayStation 4 owners are also well catered for in a week full of AAA blockbusters. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Fuser, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, Yakuza: Like a Dragon… the list goes on and on. Even handball fans have reason to be cheerful.
Here’s the current – but ever-changing – list of new PS4 and PS5 releases. We’ll keep this list updated throughout the week.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
