The “PS5 4K movie essentials” are re-releases of past Ultra HD Blu-rays, except they are going to be targeted towards PS5 owners. Sony has selected a range of films that they think will be suitable for the upcoming release of the PS5, such as Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, with the new line of Blu-rays set to release in December 2020, after the launch of the PS5.
The PS5 is capable of playing 4K UHD Blu-rays, which means the selected films from the PS5 4K movie essentials will be watchable in 2160p on the console. According to a listing on Amazon, the prices for the selected Blu-rays will sit at $30.99 and come with a 4K UHD disc, a standard Blu-ray disc, as well as a digital copy of the movie, and are available to pre-order right now. However, PS5 Digital Edition owners will not be able to play the new 4K Blu-rays because of the lack of disc drive in the console. The digital copies will also be available in 4K from selected streaming services.
The PS5 release date is just a few weeks away, set to release November 12 (US) and November 19 (UK).
Here’s a helpful list of all the upcoming PS5 games that have been confirmed so far.
