    Sony Warns PlayStation 5 Supply COULD POSSIBLY BE Scarce Until 2022

    As relayed by Bloomberg, Sony has warned investors that the PlayStation 5 may be hard to come by for consumers until at least 2022.The system, which first debuted on November 12, 2020, has been extremely limited in supply for its entire six months on store shelves. Players hoping to secure the system to play Returnal, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, or any number of other Sony first-party experiences have had to wait on online queues in order to get a chance at purchasing the hardware.RELATED: Lost Judgment Trailer Released, Yakuza Will Be an RPG Going ForwardDespite the limited availability, the system has sold 7.8 million units through March 31, and Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki stated that this high demand is part of the reason for the lack of systems.“I don’t think demand is calming down this year,” Totoki said. “Even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand.”He also compared the console to the PlayStation 4’s success, saying that the proven track record of Sony’s gaming efforts means that the demand isn’t going away anytime soon. Elsewhere in his statement, Totoki also listed the stay-at-home demands of consumers amidst the pandemic as a cause of this unusually long drought of PlayStations.RELATED: Returnal’s Latest Patch Fixes Trophies, Rebalances BiomesReturnal is one of the first games from Sony to run exclusively on PlayStation 5, with many of their launch titles coming out simultaneously on PlayStation 4. New games that don’t run on old hardware could make the PS5 even more desirable for players, which will squeeze the supply line even more as the months roll on.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered Gets a New Face For Peter Parker

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered Gets a New Face For Peter Parker The graphics aren’t the only thing getting a facelift in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered when it hits Playstation 5 later this year. James Stevenson, Insomniac Games Community Director, revealed via Playstation’s official blog that John Bubniak is no longer the facial model for Peter Parker. Instead, Ben Jordan’s likeness will now appear in the game as Peter. However, Yuri Lowenthal’s vocal performance as Peter remains in the game (via SuperHeroHype). The net effect makes Peter seem much younger in the Remastered Edition. Jordan’s resemblance to MCU Spider-Man Tom Holland is also hard to ignore. You can see for yourself in the clip below. It features an important scene between Peter and his mentor, Otto Octavious. This is also an early glimpse of Otto’s transformation into Doctor Octopus.  Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar issued a statement on Peter’s radically different look in the PS5 remastered update, which you can view below (via SuperHeroHype): A few words from me on today’s news… pic.twitter.com/PpdWVuw4Mm — Bryan Intihar (@bryanintihar) September 30, 2020 Additionally, Stevenson spoke about the upgrades for the city in the game. “The team has done the painstaking work of updating the city’s environment to take advantage of the new console. Beyond improved models and materials, one of the biggest things we have brought to the game is ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows. We now have true reflections on the windows of buildings, and it looks stunning with our new skies and weather.” RELATED: Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Gameplay Footage Revealed!
