If on one hand 2020 will represent the swan song for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, ready to give way to PS5 and Xbox Series X, on the other it promises to be theyet another great vintage for Nintendo Switch, which will see the debut of a large number of new and promising exclusives.
Before jumping headfirst in 2020, we thought well to take stock of the situation and to gather in one place all the games arriving on the hybrid over the next year. One of the most anticipated exclusives is without a shadow of a doubt Animal Crossing New Horizons, which on March 20 will finally mark the debut of the famous series on the Kyoto hybrid. The title promises a decidedly vast amount of activity and a local multiplayer for four players.
Also noteworthy Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, remake of the JRPG developed by Monolith Soft for Wii, e No More Heroes 3, new chapter of the franchise born from the mind of Suda51. Among the titles not yet confirmed for 2020, but which we sincerely hope to see, include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 and Bayonetta 3.
These, however, are only some of the upcoming games, to which a large number of multiplatforms are added. For a more complete and in-depth picture, we have packed for you the video that you can admire at the top of this news and the special article on the Most Wanted of 2020 for Nintendo Switch.
First live images of the PS5 reveal how large the console looks – MobileSyrup
The first live images of the PlayStation 5 have been posted online, as the console appeared at Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC).
The photos show just how big the PS5 is, which isn’t much of a surprise since we learned that the PS5 is the biggest game console in modern history.
There are images of the console in vertical and horizontal positions, which show that it may be a bit difficult to fit the PS5 in entertainment centres, since it’s been designed to stand vertically, similar to the Xbox Series X.
Although the images do show the size of the PS5, they don’t provide any information on how users will be able to access the NVMe slot on the console. Users will be able to expand storage space, but it’s not fully known how this will work.
The console will launch in Canada on November 12th. The standard Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive-equipped console will cost $629.99 CAD, while the all-digital model will be priced at $499.99 CAD.
Additionally, Sony has revealed that some PS5 games, including launch titles Demon’s Souls and Destruction AllStars, will be priced at $89.99 in Canada.

PS5, Xbox Series X and Switch size comparison shows off just how big next-gen units are – VG247
We already know that the PlayStation 5 is the biggest games console in modern history, but a new illustration has made it clear just how big the machine is.
Over on Twitter, illustrator and 3D modeller @keisawada has put together a series of images that really put the size of the next-gen consoles into perspective.
The PS5 is placed next to a Nintendo Switch, an Xbox Series X, an Xbox Series S, a 30″ TV, and a regular PS4. The difference in dimensions is clear to see.

Sony’s next-gen PlayStation towers above the other consoles and almost threatens to match the size of the TV, too. It really is a massive bit of kit.
We know why Sony’s machine is so big: it’s mostly due to cooling. Matt MacLaurin, the vice president of UX Design at PlayStation, has previously explained in a post on LinkedIn that the PS5 runs very hot. As such, it needs more space to adequately vent the heat.
The console hasn’t even launched yet and already it’s causing a schism online; some gamers think it looks pretty and futuristic, others think it looks out-dated and imposing.
Whatever you think of it, though, you can’t argue with its absolutely massive size. The PS5 is approximately 390mm tall, 260mm deep, and 104mm wide (and the digital version is only 12mm slimmer).
Sony will release two consoles in November; the standard model and the digital-only models They’ll set you back $499 and $399, respectively.
