There were many games shown during Sony’s big PS5 reveal event, but Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales stole the show. Now we are getting even more details about the highly anticipated game.
We already know that when Miles Morales finally dons the infamous black and red Spider-Man costume and swings into action the PS5, it won’t be an add-on but his own stand-alone adventure. Today (Jun.18) on PlayStation’s blog, Brian Horton, Creative Director at Insomniac Games, dropped even more juicy tidbits about the studio’s upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive.
In the post, Horton revealed the studio loved the character, Miles Morales, for a “very long time” and that Marvel’s Spider-Man creative director Bryan Intihar suggested years ago that Miles should be in the same universe as Peter Parker.
“As we continued with the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe, we knew that Miles’s origin story as a Spider-Man was something that needed its own game. Miles’s multicultural background reflects a more modern, diverse world, and we wanted to give players a new story, with new set-pieces, fresh villains, and unique quests across Marvel’s New York City. This had to be a can’t-miss next adventure in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe.”

The game’s timeline and some of the plot was also revealed, placing it a year after the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man.
“Let’s set the scene for the game a little more. It’s now wintertime, about a year after the events of the first game. Marvel’s New York is covered in snow, and just before Christmas break, a war between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army has broken out. Miles’s new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.”
Horton even touched on the size of the game, comparing it to Naughty Dog’s fantastic women-led Uncharted: The Lost Legacy “in terms of scope.” The team has been working hard on Miles Morale’s story since wrapping up the development of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Horton promises that fans can expect a full story arc when they press start and begin Mile’s journey.
The game will also show off the full power of the PS5. Players can look forward to instant loading, ray-tracing, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller. The character models in the PS4’s Marvel’s Spider-Man were already stunning, Horton details the characters will look even better thanks to “4D scans and improved skin shading for more realistic looking characters and spline-based hair that moves far more naturally.”
Last but certainly not least, Horton also revealed to fans worried about Peter Parker that he is okay and that his adventure will continue “still have much of Peter’s story left to tell.” Horton made sure to point out that this game is “all about Miles” and that his story is “a critical part of our Spider-Man universe, and you won’t want to miss what happens.”
We can’t wait to play when the game drop along with the PS5 holiday 2020 or according to the Amazon leak in November.

My rules for being a Manhattan billionaire's fake girlfriend… No kissing. No fooling around. No falling in love. What can possibly go wrong? Note to self:  When your boyfriend dumps you on your thirtieth birthday, it's probably not the smartest idea to drink so much that you wake up in the same bed as the mysterious hottie wearing the gorgeous suit who you noticed sitting across the bar. The only silver lining in my obvious lack of judgment is the promise of never seeing Mr. Suit again, not in a city the size of New York. Or so I thought, until a story I'm working on about the country's most sought-after and elusive escort lands me in the same café as Mr. Suit. So I do what any self-respecting woman of my age would do in my shoes… Try to ignore him. But he won't let me. Instead he makes a proposition that leaves me questioning whether I need to have my ears checked. Be his fake girlfriend for a summer of wealth and excess in the Hamptons. In return, he'll help me win back my boyfriend's heart. Juvenile? You bet. Effective? Could be. Bad idea? Most likely. But what do I have to lose? Apparently, a lot more than I originally bargained for. Let the games begin… Dating Games is a standalone modern retelling of Cinderella meeting her billionaire Prince Charming. If you like a sassy heroine, a sinful hero, and a whole lot of laughs, then you'll love this fake relationship romance. The Dating Games Series Recommended Reading Order Each book in this series can be enjoyed separately as each revolves around a different couple, but for the best reading experience it is recommended to read in the order below. 1.

It’s happening, it’s really happening. PlayStation has confirmed that the long-rumored PS5 June event will take place.
Next week Sony will be giving eager gamers a “look at the future of gaming,” the company announced on both Twitter and its official blog. President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, gave PlayStation fans something to look forward to saying, “The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe.”
Ryan also pointed out in the statement that the games will come from studios “newer and older,” “larger and smaller,” and will “showcase the potential of the hardware.”
He further added that the lack of physical events due to COVID-19 gives his company an “amazing opportunity to think differently,” while also promising it will bring gamers “closer than ever before.” While there is no clear indication that we will get to see the PS5 console, he made sure to point out that the upcoming event “is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.”
So it’s evident that Sony will be stretching this out till the PS5’s holiday 2020 release.

The Game just released the second installment to his Documentary 2 album series but its the first disc that still is being centered in controversy.
While speaking with Letty Martinez on her podcast LettySetGo, the West Coast all-star was asked the reasoning for calling Lupe Fiasco “weird” on his song “Dollar & a Dream” record and he was very blunt about it.
“He is f*cking weird,” he replied. “Thing is, you obviously can’t have the old Game. I was 23-years-old. I was baldhead then. If you talking about the old Game, what’s in my heart and what my music is, I’m currently fighting three court cases, criminal. I’m currently still in the hood. My grandfather died today. My brother Big Fase still lives on Black Wall Street. So when you say the old Game and you make it seem like I’m not the old Game, you’re disrespecting the makeup of me and who I am and you’re playing yourself.”
After getting wind of the track, Lupe responded to his rapper peer on Twitter with a link to Oasis’ “Wonderwall” video, which addressed being the outcast in the room. The truth of the matter is, Game understands Lupe’s stance, even if he can’t identify with it.
“Personally, on the Lupe front, maybe I might be lost now or maybe Lupe is just evolving and Game can’t see it,” he continued. “I miss the old Lupe records when it was about Chi-Town and it was hood and maybe I’m being what I’m telling other people not to be. But that’s just being a fan of music. Some people evolve and you are able to embrace it. Then other people evolve and you get mad. That’s why when some people might be like, ‘Game, you changed’ or ‘I like the old Game,’ you might be what I’m being when I say I like the old Lupe. At the end of the day it’s being a Hip-Hop fan and being critical and wanting the music that you want.”
Once again, Lupe took to his Twitter soapbox to let Game know that he prefered a bevy of other adjectives opposed to “weird.”
