Developer Housemarque has taken the wraps off of Returnal, a third-person shooter for the PS5 that’s decidedly more ambitious than its previous titles like Resogun...at first look, it’s an Edge of Tomorrow-inspired thriller that has you desperately trying to break a cycle where you crash, die in an attack, and somehow come back to life...

This was probably the most interesting new IP in saw in the event. I read before the event that one of the main Dead Space writers was working on a PS5 game to be revealed today too and insinuated that it would be a horror game and the main character was "having a really bad time". So this seems to align with all that. If it's half as good as Dead Space too, it'll be well worth playing. Also, Edge of Tomorrow is one of my somewhere recent favorite movies, so I love the premise and setting here.

I don't know how you can say that when the footage yesterday didn't reveal anything about the game, and what was shown was not anything special. Returnal was pretty much the only game aside from Demon's Souls that actually got me to pay attention.

but the little footage they did show looked really interesting and has potential...you can see the framework of a good game...the other games they showed were more complete but I liked what I saw

they showed more footage from Returnal but I wasn't as confident in the gameplay...like I said Edge of Tomorrow the video game...

so it will be released before PS5 is available

There's about 5 million PS5s sold now and will probably be double that by the time the game has launched. I don't think a significant portion of those are sitting in scalper's inventory either. Me and a few of my friends all have one already at least; they're not at the 3080-level of hard to get from what I've seen, since I've been trying to get one of those since November when I got my PS5.

Indeed. Got my PS5 relatively easy. Still searching for a 3090.

Sorry meant to say available to people that have a job. The profit margin for current scalping prices on PS5 is only slightly lower than 3080, I'll take the objective data over the imasocoolihaveone data.
Having a job has nothing to do with it. If you don't have a job your priorities shouldn't be towards spending a bunch of money on luxury items. Hell not having a job would make it easier to get stuff if you had the money.

It's still outselling the PlayStation 4 even with ongoing supply issues.

All I'm gonna say is that HouseMarque is great and Nex Machina didn't get anywhere near enough love.
