‘Today’s the day we’ve been looking forward to for years, where we get to show you just the games that demonstrate our belief that PlayStation 5 marks the biggest generational transition our industry has yet seen,’ Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO, said.

Sony started its presentation by revealing PS5 owners will get GTA Online completely free at launch.

The simulation basketball game has an enormous following, particularly in the US, and Greg Thomas, co-founder of developer Visual Concepts, said the game has been ‘built from the ground up to fully utilise the incredible power, speed and technology of PS5’.
