During the PlayStation 5 showcase, Sony has revealed that PS Plus members will be entitled to the PS Plus Collection: a library of the greatest, generation-defining games of the PS4.

PS Plus subscribers have enjoyed monthly games for free during the PS4 generation, most recently including popular titles like Fall Guys and Street Fighter V. It appears that Sony is taking that energy to an entirely new level, as PS5 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription will be able to access an entire library of the PS4’s greatest titles at launch.

This is an enticing opportunity for fans as it means newcomers to the console will be able to experience titles they’ve been hearing about and even PS4 players will be able to enjoy games that they may have not had a chance to.

Among the titles mentioned, some of the highlights are God of War, Persona 5, The Last Of Us, Bloodborne, and Detroit: Become Human. This is a huge announcement and very exciting for newcomers to the PlayStation world, as former Xbox players will be thrilled that they can now try out some of the titles they missed while preoccupied with the Xbox One. 

With many fans in the video game industry wondering if Sony would be enticed to start following Xbox’s Game Pass subscription model, it appears that the company is instead marketing their PS Plus subscription with earlier games, rather than future ones.

That isn’t an issue, as the slate of titles added to the launch collection appears mouth-watering enough to have fans revved up and hungry to get their hands on PS5 pre-orders.

Aside from the hype over the PlayStation 5 Showcase’s continued game reveals and announcements, this one was a clear winner. Fans are thrilled that PS4 players will be able to dive into a Call of Duty: Cold War Alpha very early and that the God of War 2: Ragnarok teaser finally arrived, but they recognize that the PS Plus Collection is another exciting addition.

Most interestingly, people see this announcement as a direct blow to Xbox’s plans. While many were already considering a switch to PlayStation, the price points ($399 for digital, $499 for standard) and free access to PS4 Greatest Hits are added bonuses to those who are considering making the swap over.

In addition to the aforementioned titles that will be available, the PS Plus Collection will also include games like Mortal Kombat X, Days Gone, Final Fantasy XV, and many more.

Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Crown Tundra Expansion Pass is finally out, bringing with it both new and returning fan-favorite Pokemon. Here’s all the version exclusive Pokemon for both Sword and Shield. 

While the frozen lands of Sword and Shield’s Crown Tundra expansion are home to plenty of new Pokemon, there are also a number of iconic ‘mons that have returned. However, there are a few Pokemon that are only available in each version. This can make completing your Pokedex a little tricky, especially if you don’t have a copy of both games. Fortunately, you can catch each version exclusive and simply trade with other trainers. 

The addition of Dynamax Adventures allows trainers to encounter previous generation Pokemon and even catch version exclusive Legendaries. While the Sword and Shield’s base game cut a lot of iconic Pokemon from its roster, this expansion features plenty of familiar faces. If you want to know which Crown Tundra Pokemon are exclusive to both Sword and Shield, then check out our guide below.
