PS5: new total exclusive of Remedy coming according to a well-known leaker

PS5: new total exclusive of Remedy coming according to a well-known leaker


Remedy Entertainment, author of Control and Alan Wake, seems to have a lot of meat in it. The Finnish team has in fact recently confirmed that it has five games in production and, according to information shared by a well-known leaker - Shpeshal Ed -, it seems that one of these is a total exclusive for PlayStation consoles, probably PS5.

Claire Bromley, Global External Producer at PlayStation, recently shared various job postings at Remedy via her LinkedIn profile. Additionally, she shared posts from Remedy COO-Christopher Schmitz-, Communications Director Thomas Puha, and Audio Designer Sam Hughes. On its own, this fact is of little relevance, especially since Bromley is used to sharing posts from third-party developers. That said, Shpeshal Ed has given power to the rumor of the PS5 exclusive.

As you can see below, Shpeshal Ed claims that the rumors are real and that this game will not simply be a time exclusive, but a real one. total exclusive to PlayStation. As mentioned, considering that it probably won't be ready for some time, it's highly likely that it's a next-gen project only, namely PS5.

Shpeshal Ed is a credible source, even if it usually deals of leaks dedicated to the Xbox world. We remember, however, that he revealed in advance that Final Fantasy 7 Remake would be a free game of the PS Plus of March 2021. As always, however, we suggest that you take this information with a grain of salt and remember that it is only a rumor, nothing official .

As for the other games, we know that one will be the Xbox CrossfireX exclusive, two games will be released by Epic Games, and another is expected to be Alan Wake 2. We hope to receive official confirmation as soon as possible.

Staying on the PS5 theme, you should know that 60 FPS is easy for a well-known modder to implement in Bloodborne.

PS5 restock update: Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, Amazon, Target and updates from more retailers

A lot of gamers have spent a lot of time over few months obsessively refreshing the Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop and Sony websites try to get their hands on the PlayStation 5. Even though the console launched last November, it's still incredibly difficult to find and even harder to actually purchase. In fact, the PS5 was recently declared to be the fastest-selling console in US history. There is some light on the horizon though -- these major retailers are now seeing frequent PlayStation 5 console restocks. As of April 4, they're all sold out, but don't fret, we have some ways to improve your chances of scoring one. 

First tip: Don't wait until you hear about a PlayStation inventory drop. Check the links at major retailers yourself daily or even multiple times a day. (We've got them all lined up below.) If you do chance upon some PS5 availability, go crazy with as many web browsers and devices as you can. On a desktop, for instance, open the retailer's page in Firefox, Chrome and Edge. Then you could do likewise on your phone and tablet. It's like with lottery tickets: the more you have, the better your chances of winning.

If you're starting to crack and considering buying a PS5 right now, you can do so, but at the cost of an obscene markup on sites like eBay and StockX. On eBay, for example, we've seen pricier PS5 units priced well over $1,000. At this point, we still think it's worth it to wait it out and get the new console at sticker price.

The PS5 is available in two versions: There's a $500 model with a Blu-ray drive and an otherwise identical $400 digital-only version with no disc slot. At this point, people are happy to get their hands on either one, but if you don't have a library of optical discs -- for Blu-ray movies, used games or old PS4 games -- CNET recommends that you go with the $400 version.

PS5 restock possibilities

You can check inventory on the $400 Digital Edition at Walmart by clicking the button below, or you can try to snag the pricier PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.

Target offers the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition, which you can find by clicking the button below.

Best Buy is offering the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 as well as the $400 Digital Edition (which you can find by clicking the button below). The retailer is also offering a slew of accessories on its PS5 landing page.

OK, you've exhausted all of the online and brick-and-mortar retailers, and you've decided you're willing to pay upward of a $300 markup to get this puppy soon. As your friends, we have to tell you: Don't do it. But if you don't want to listen to us, you might want to check out StockX, an eBay alternative that made its name in the secondary market for sneakers and designer clothing. Last time we checked, prices for the PS5 were hovering just below $700.

If you've decided you simply can't wait another moment for Sony to get its act together and flood the market with inventory, eBay is a shortcut to getting your own PS5 right now. That said, let me reiterate our advice: No PS5 is worth spending hundreds over list price, and that's exactly what you'll have to do if you buy from an eBay reseller. The average PS5 price on eBay is about $900.
