Sony's PlayStation Showcase has finally revealed some details about the PS5, in this case, a new service known as the PS Plus Collection. This new service will offer PS5 gamers a slew of the best PS4 games to play on their brand-new system at launch. So if you're looking for something to play on launch day and you haven't played some of the previous console generations most defining experiences you'll be able to do that instead of playing a next-gen game.
Some of the games that will be part of the service include God of War, Resident Evil VII, and The Last of Us Remastered. One game noticeable by its absence is Spider-Man. Considering that the game's sequel will be a launch title for the PS5, it might have made some amount of sense for Sony to include the full PS4 game as part of the PS Plus Collection as well. It's also not immediately clear if this collection will be made available for players on PS4, although if Sony is trying to incentivize console sales then the likelihood is that this collection will remain exclusive to the PS5. Additionally, the game is getting a remastered version released alongside Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
PlayStation Plus also offers an 'instant game collection' which gives users access to a bunch of games as long as they keep paying their subscriptions. Presumebly the PS Plus Collection will operate in the same way, requiring the user to keep paying for a subscription to access the collection of games for their PS5. Either way, it at least doesn't look like the added games with increase the cost of the subscription for everyone which is nice.
You can check out the reveal video for yourselves below, it's presented with some very slick graphics and features a showcase of the different games that you get when you buy the service at launch.
