In a further obfuscation of the reasons to buy a PS5 on launch day, Sony reveals first-party exclusive Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also release on PS4.

The upgrade path between the current generation and the next one has never been more confusing. Developers have been offering various different degrees of “free upgrade” for games that span the generation, for one thing. And between them, Sony and Microsoft have been doing their best to obfuscate the reason to buy their latest and greatest hardware.

The latest confusing fuel on the fire is that PlayStation 5 “launch exclusive” Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available on both PS5 and PS4.

That’s obviously good news for the majority of us, who won’t rush out and buy a new console on launch day. (We might have to wait until they release a PS5 Slim that looks less stupid and fits under your TV better, thanks.)

So here’s when you’ll be able to get your hands on Spider-Man: Miles Morales:

  • PS4 worldwide – Nov 12
  • PS5 in “early launch” countries (Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Mexico, and Canada) – Nov 12
  • PS5 in the rest of the world – Nov 19

It’s tricky, isn’t it? You might be planning to get a PS5 in Europe on November 19, but the PS4 version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales – the closest thing to an exciting launch exclusive of the next console generation – will be available for a whole week earlier for everyone not in those PS5 “early launch” locations, where the console launches on November 12, 2020.

In a blog post, Sony says: “We know that some of you may transition to PS5 at different times, which it was why it was important to us to release the latest title in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe on both consoles.”

The standard edition of Spider-Man: Miles Morales will set you back $49.99 whichever console you buy it for, so that’s no indicator, ether.

You’ll be pleased to hear that there is one motivator for grabbing the game on PS5: The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will include a next-generation remaster of the original PS4 game, Marvel’s Spider-Man, which we liked very much.

It’s not free, though. The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will set you back $69.99, an extra 20 bucks over the price of the base game.

Is everybody clear on why they should buy a PS5 on launch day? Good. Neither are we.
