New PS5 and PS4 games from Sony’s latest inventory
Sony released its latest State of Play today focusing on smaller indie games and once again showing off its timed PlayStation 5 console exclusivity Death loop. The company promised there wouldn’t be big news at the event, but even so, it was a bit of a nap party.
We’ve had a handful of announcements of new games, release dates, and trailers, but nothing has fundamentally changed the outlook for games on PS5 and PS4 in the second half of this year. I was hoping for at least a little surprise or two after Sony skipped E3’s all-digital comeback, but the relatively quiet showcase seems to measure up to the course at this point after the video game industry’s upheaval by the global pandemic in the past 16 months. Here’s what Sony showed:
A Foam: Book II is under construction.
Ratatouille’s cousin Stuart Little is back in a new PSVR adventure. Cute! Hopefully he finally finds his motorcycle.

About a third of the showcase was dedicated exclusively to a demo of the upcoming immersive simulation from Microsoft’s Xbox studios. it still looks Arkane-Yes like hell and it hasn’t been delayed again. But I don’t want to hear anything else about this game until it’s in my hands and I actually play it.
