This PS5 Promo from Travis Scott Must Be Seen to Be Believed

Sony loves to get fancy with its console unboxing videos, but when it was teased that Travis Scott would be involved in the unveiling of the PlayStation 5, it was obvious something rather unique was coming. And boy is it. This 10-minute video is a journey through Travis' first encounter with the PS5 out in a desert as he activates some sort of gigantic, rectangular thing with big speakers to match.

The new Demon’s Souls is the old Demon’s Souls, but shinier

Twelve hours into the new Demon’s Souls for PlayStation 5, I’m starting to realize how much developer Bluepoint Games has blurred the line between remaster and remake.
