With both the PS5 and Xbox Series X release dates and prices confirmed, all eyes are on the games each platform has bagged for launch.
News of Halo Infinite's delay was a blow to Xbox fans, but Microsoft tried to salvage the situation by highlighting the thousands of games that will be ready to go when its next-gen console drops, spanning four generations.
Meanwhile, Sony is continuing the winning-approach it took with the PS4 and securing platform exclusives that will make its console a must-buy for gamers who want to play them.
As a general guideline, Sony's own Worldwide Studios titles will be priced from $49.99 (£51.99/ €59.99/ CAD$64.99) to $69.99 £69.99/ €79.99/ CAD$89.99) on PS5.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Sony treated us to over seven minutes of Spider-Man: Miles Morales gameplay (opens in new tab), introducing us to characters we'll get to know when playing the game.
As a plus, the Ultimate Edition of the game will include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered, as well as all three installments of the Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC.
The remastered version has been "completely updated" with "better-looking characters with improved skin, eyes, hair, and facial animation (including [the] new, next-generation Peter Parker)", as well as "ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows, improved lighting, more pedestrians and vehicles stretching further into the distance, and the same optional performance mode offered on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales."
It'll hit the targeted 60fps, support DualSense features, as well as near-instant loading and 3D audio, and Insomniac has also added three new Spider-Man suits, new photo mode features, and new trophies.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will be available on the PS5's launch day for $69.99/ £69.99/ €79.99/ CAD$89.99 both at retail and digitally on the PlayStation Store.
The standard edition comes in at $49.99/ £51.99/ €59.99/ CAD$64.99.
