While you would think a 40 minute event would be the perfect time to announce your launch line up of games, as well as address the elephant of changing the default retail price point; Sony Interactive disagrees. Opting instead to delegate it to a blog post after, along with various accessories, we can now go over it here.
First up is the launch line up - which note is missing third party games like Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition - of first party games. From the PlayStation blog, your large AAA games will now cost $70, and smaller ones like Marvel's Spider-rMan: Miles Morales and Sackboy A Big Adventure will cost $50 and $60 respectively.
