The new PS5

Wow, we're in for a treat!

The news that an updated version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released for the PS5 was perhaps the only revelation of the evening that was slightly underwhelming.

It now looks increasingly apparent that Grand Theft Auto 6 will not be available for at least a few years.

But with the likes of Gran Turismo 7, Hitman 3, a new Resident Evil game and many, many more, we can probably make do with an updated version of GTA 5, eh?

An official release date for the PS5 was still not confirmed last night by Sony, with the price of the also console still unknown.

However, a release is expected this year and as we reported HERE, it's not going to come cheap...
