This Week in Games: Nov 9 – 14


This week is THE week for gaming in 2020 with both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S launching, there is just so much coming out this week that there is no time for love Doctor Jones. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Let’s get it out of the way with the new Series X and Series S Xboxes available for those who preordered from Tuesday. We did a full write up for the differences between each of the consoles but availability for this on day one will definitely be limited to those who pre ordered.

If you are picking up a new Xbox this week you will want to be picking up the new Assassins Creed Valhalla that is first available for the new Series X/S on Tuesday to go with the release but also will be playable on the previous generation Xbox and PlayStation with the PS5 version coming out Thursday.

Which brings us to the second console release for the week with the PlayStation 5 available again to those who pre-ordered. Stocks for both the PS5 and the PS5 all digital versions are even more limited than the Xbox with those who werent able to score one this week expecting to be out of luck until post Christmas (please try to avoid the eBay scalpers).

So what game do you need with your PS5? The latest Spider-Man of course! Look if you have the latest PlayStation you are definitely going to want to pick this one up to show off those SSD loading times and Raytracing awesomeness but Miles is not a PS5 exclusive with it also being available for PS4 gamers this week also.

Not sure how to finish the week? If you don’t have AAA burn out by now then you are probably on the lookout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that launches on Friday. Out for pretty much every Xbox and PlayStation platform but for PC gamers you will need to head over to Battlenet to pick-up this throwback to to the 80s.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out for your gaming back catalogue! Look this is a pretty huge week with Demon Souls for PS5, a bunch of Game Pass titles like Destiny 2 and more so you might be worried about making the jump from your old console to your new with a bunch of new games you only recently got still to finish. Not only will a lot of your titles be playable on the newer consoles but some of the most recent titles like Watchdogs Legion and Marvels Avengers are already committed for a free next gen upgrade. So make sure you check that out for any games you have recently picked up and might be in the middle of.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
