The very first Black Spider-Man is set to enter the world of gamers in the newest next-gen gaming console, Sony’s PS5! The much-awaited grand reveal of PlayStation 5 has been made. And the games attached to it are now released by the company. One of them is Spider-Man: Miles Morales that made a surprising sequel. Is it a tribute to ‘Black Lives Matter’ or just pure coincidence on Sony’s part? Sony PS5 features Miles Morales.
Have you watched the latest Sony’s PS5 gameplay event? If not, here’s something you should know.
Of course, people have been talking about the gaming console– as we waited for a long time for this. The PS5 Digital Edition will be having a custom AMD RDNA 2-based GPU and an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU. It will also have 10.28 teraflops of power using variable frequencies that will be provided by the custom AMD chips on GPU and CPU. It has an SSD that can last 5.5GB/s of performance and 825GB of storage.
But before the console went trending, another surprising turn of events on the gameplay program was the release of PS4’s 2018 Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Miles Morales already appeared in PlayStation as a playable character. But it did not leave a memorable mark for the gamers since it wasn’t until the end of the game that a radioactive spider bit miles–suggesting a sequel for the game.
Obviously, this is not the only upcoming PS5 game that will be launched by Sony PS5 soon. In fact, Horizon: Forbidden West will also be made available, as a sequel to the PS4 game Horizon: Zero Dawn. Gamers can also choose from GhostWire; Tokyo, Gran Turismo 7, Solar Ash, Project Athia, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Deathloop, and many more.
What makes the Spider-Man: Miles Morales, however, is the fact that it is the very first Black Spider-Man on the console. And Sony might be giving us a hint that this game is a tribute for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests happening in the country.
Last week, Sony decided to postpone this gameplay event as a sign of respect to all the protesters of George Floyd’s death in the United States. They explained that the original date for the release of PS5 reveal was not a good time to celebrate any milestone. Thus, it needs to be postponed.
“There are moments in life when something happens around you, and you realize that what you’ve been doing is either not big enough, not good enough, or just wrong. This is such a moment,” Sony said at the time. “We are going to take a good hard look at how we behave as a company, and how we behave towards our community.
Is it really a tribute or just pure coincidence?
