An artist’s TikTok videos went viral after showing players what the future of the gaming industry could look like with some jaw-dropping concepts – including an epic mashup of PlayStation and Nintendo.

The games industry is on the cusp of its next generation with the release of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X on November 10, and Sony’s PlayStation 5 on the 13th. From 4K resolution to ray tracing, players have a lot to be excited for.

One artist is already looking even further into the future, and went viral on TikTok after sharing their incredible concepts. The enthusiast’s take on a potential new PSP console pulled in millions of views.

The genius behind the stunning creations is TikTok user ‘Kashama’ who uploaded their futuristic gaming console concepts to the platform in November.

The talented artist went viral November 7 after bringing a successor to the PSP and Vita to life. Called “Orus,” the new handheld utilizes an immersive touchscreen that fits over the entire portable console.

The clip shows the user interacting with the futuristic handheld as they scroll through the PlayStation Store using their fingers to swipe left and right.  The post blew up and racked up over 9.5 million views in just three days.

Their first second showcased what a potential mashup between Nintendo and Sony could look like. The creative clip combines the Switch’s Joy Con with PS5’s new DualSense controller.

Kashama’s idea sees the PlayStation controller’s touchpad turned into a screen, which showcases different gaming footage. The post reached over 5.8 million views at the time of writing.

Nintendo Switch fans will remember how early patents filed by the Japanese company led many to believe the new console would utilize similar looking interactive touchscreen designs. So it’s cool to see that concept brought to life in the form of a PlayStation handheld.

While the game’s industry is just embarking on its next-generation, it’s interesting to see where the future of the hobby could go even further into the future.

Despite suffering numerous long delays, fans are still hyped for CD Projekt Red’s dystopian Cyberpunk 2077. As the release date edges closer, we’ve had our first look at the game on PS5, as well as a comparison between PS4 Pro and PS5 graphics.

Cyberpunk 2077 is shaping up to be one of the most hotly-anticipated games of 2020. With its dystopian open-world setting, insane customization, and intriguing storyline, it looks set to become a truly epic title.

It’s not without its issues though, having suffered a number of consecutive delays, along with controversy over the dreaded ‘crunch’ for devs.

However, it seems that we may be on the ‘home stretch’ for the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Devs have now released the final teaser of gameplay footage, along with a first glimpse at the game running on the next-gen PS5.

There’s no doubt that Cyberpunk is a fantastic looking game. With cutting-edge graphics, the visuals have stunned even the most doubtful of critics. So far, we’ve only seen the game on current-gen consoles, but CD Projekt Red has now revealed the first preview of the game running on the next-gen PlayStation 5.

Technically, the game is running via backward compatibility in the footage. However, the game will be available on PS5 at launch.

Starting at the very beginning, the footage shows the initial stages of the ‘Nomad’ life path. On PS4 pro the game looks absolutely gorgeous, with plenty of fantastic light effects, incredible detail, and lots of immersive scenes.

However, around the 4:30 mark in the video below, the footage switches over to PS5, and the difference is immediately noticeable.

Next-gen footage starts at 4:32

The shadows become immediately deeper, without losing any of the detail. The rain also suddenly takes on a whole new dimension, creating streaks on the windows that look impressively realistic.

Lighting also changes, with more natural-looking flares when looking up at streetlights through car windows, and the traditional ‘haze’ from the neon lights of the city also taking on more of a prominent role.

Highlights become more controlled, and the falloff between light and dark extremes feel more natural, with a more gradual transition between the two.

Sadly, we were only shown just over two minutes’ worth of footage. However, if those two minutes are anything to go by, Cyberpunk 2077 is going to look absolutely fantastic on next-gen consoles.
