    There are some stellar games on the PS5, including major launch games such as Demon's Souls and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. While there have still been a number of delays on some of our anticipated games, titles like Deathloop have become some of the best PS5 games available, so you can get enough for play whatever genres interest you.

    If you have PS4 games, some of them deserve an upgrade to PS5 versions. These updates vary, with some being free and some requiring a fee, but they will all help you to enjoy your games even more. PS5 versions of games can take full advantage of the new hardware, resulting in ultra-fast load times thanks to the built-in SSD. They also look better and can even run at up to 120 FPS.

    If you do not want to spend any money, Astro's amazing little Playroom is a magical platformer that comes pre - installed on your PS5. It’s a game full of a ton of mystery to discover and it appears to showcase the DualSense controller haptic feedback and changing promoters. There are other free games on PS5 too if you don't want to spend money just yet.

    Grab PlayStation Plus

    PlayStation Plus requires most games to be played online, but that's just the beginning. It's a membership worth capturing as it offers access to the PlayStation Plus Collection, a mix of PS4 games that can be played on PS5 without purchasing any of them. You will also receive subscriber-only discounts and additional monthly games for free. Just remember that you need to keep your subscription to access any games you have applied for through the program.

    Check out PlayStation Now

    You can also flush a library of games! PlayStation Now, which requires a separate subscription, lets you stream several hundred PS3 and PS4 games at 1080p without downloading them (though you can download some PS4 titles if you want). Overall, you do not need to pay for PlayStation Plus to play multiplayer while playing any of these games.

    Search the PlayStation app

    The PlayStation App completely changes the way you interact with your PS5. You can join in voice chat at parties, view your messages, download games remotely and more. Don’t worry more about downloading a game after you buy it while you’re at work - just start the process with this app while you stay connected with all your friends.

    Share your game with a friend

    One of the most exciting features of the PS5 is the ability to stream your game, picture-in-picture, to any friends you talk to at a party. The use of this feature, called Screen Share, can completely change a party. You can show someone how to accomplish something in a game, play through singles together, have a buddy-only streaming session, or just add to the atmosphere as you hang out. Try it next time you're at a party.

    Have fun in a whole new world

    A whole new generation is here, with plenty of games to come. Games like Deathloop are to be played while other titles that have been delayed until 2022 - such as Hogwarts Legacy, Horizon Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarok - are just some of the big games that are expected to be available at some point over the next 12 months.

    Looking ahead even further, the future remains unclear. Sony has invested in several companies through acquisitions throughout 2022, expanding its staff at PlayStation Studios with teams at Bluepoint Games, Firesprite, Housemarque, Nixxes, and Valkyrie Entertainment, so there will be a strong library of PS5 exclusive games on the way later in the generation. In our PS5 review, our Gaming Editor and PlayStation director Jennifer Locke said she can't go back to the PS4 now that the PS5 is here and she's looking forward to just what other stored, and hopefully this holiday season, you'll be in the same boat.
