In this week’s PlayStation 5 news roundup, we bring you three exciting stories, including the possibility of a new PlayStation event, leaked PlayStation Plus games for September, and a breakthrough in running PlayStation 4 games at 120 FPS on a hacked PlayStation 5.
PlayStation Plus Games for September Leaked
As the anticipation for each month’s upcoming PlayStation Plus games builds, it seems that leaks have become a common occurrence. According to a reliable source, Deal Labs, six PlayStation Plus extra titles have been leaked ahead of the official announcement expected later this week. While the total number of games included in September’s update is yet to be confirmed, it usually features over ten titles. The leaked games include:
- Near Replicant
- Star Ocean: The Divine Force
- 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
- Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
- Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2
Among these, Near Replicant stands out as a highlight, while Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 has received positive reviews. However, given the recent price hike for PlayStation Plus, some players expected a more substantial lineup. We’ll have to wait for the official announcement to see what Sony has in store for us this month.
New PlayStation 5 Event on the Horizon
Rumors have been swirling around a potential PlayStation event slated for late 2023, and it seems that the pieces are falling into place for Sony to make an announcement soon. Several hints and clues have been dropped, increasing the likelihood of an event happening this week.
Prominent industry insider Jeff Grubb hinted at a state of play event being in the works. His track record has been reliable in the past, and his comment on the recent PlayStation Plus price hike suggests a connection to an upcoming event.
Additionally, forum discussions on ResetEra hinted at something significant coming from Sony this week. The mention of “Spider-Man state of play” has sparked excitement among fans, further fueling speculation about an imminent PlayStation event.
PlayStation Germany also added to the intrigue by mentioning two upcoming titles, Stellar Blade and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, in their social media posts. While Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’s tweet was mysteriously deleted, it’s an indicator that fans of these titles may have something to look forward to.
With these hints and clues aligning, PlayStation fans have reason to be excited about a potential event announcement in the coming days.
Unlocking 120 FPS on PlayStation 5 – A Breakthrough Hack
Modding enthusiasts continue to push the boundaries of what the PlayStation 5 can do. One notable achievement is the ability to run PlayStation 4 games at a staggering 120 FPS on a hacked PlayStation 5 through backward compatibility. Modern Illusion, known for their work on increasing game performance, has been responsible for this impressive feat.
Previously, they managed to get several PlayStation 4 titles running at 60 FPS on the PlayStation 5, including Red Dead Redemption 2. This recent achievement comes in response to players’ demands for official 60 FPS or even 120 FPS patches for some of their favorite games. Rockstar Games and FromSoftware, however, have not officially addressed these requests, leaving fans to rely on modders to experience enhanced frame rates.
While it’s exciting to see these modders push the limits of the PlayStation 5, it raises questions about why game developers haven’t taken similar steps to optimize their titles for higher frame rates. Players eagerly await the day when their favorite games can fully harness the potential of their next-gen consoles.
The PlayStation 5 community is buzzing with anticipation for a potential event, September’s PlayStation Plus games, and the impressive achievements of modders in unlocking higher frame rates. As the week unfolds, fans eagerly await official announcements from Sony and continue to explore the possibilities of their beloved gaming platform.
