Hobby Consolas 352, on sale, with reports from PS5, Xbox Series XS and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Hobby Consolas Issue 352 is out now, with a 30-page report on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series XS that is accompanied by an eight-page report on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. In addition, we review three decades of consoler relays, we travel to the prehistory of the pistol arcade, we anticipate the great games that are going to be launched in the coming weeks … And don’t miss the double poster that we are giving away, starring Crash Bandicoot 4 and the new Spider-Man.
Hobby Consolas 352 is now available at kiosks and other authorized points of sale. This is a special issue, as there are only a few weeks left to enjoy Xbox Series XS (November 10) and PlayStation 5 (November 19). That is why we have made the new consoles the undisputed stars of the month.
Specific, we have dedicated thirty pages to a mega-report where we break down everything there is to know about this generational change. First of all, we have given six pages to each machine, to explain all its features and vision: the technical characteristics, the backward compatibility, the type of services, the new features of the command, the first party studies that will work on them …
Secondly, We took no less than fourteen pages to break down what, after all, matters most in a console: its games. On the one hand, we talk about the launch games of both machines, differentiating between the exclusive ones of one and the other and the multiplatform ones. On the other hand, we look to the future to remember the most important titles that are already announced for the near future, again making the distinction between exclusive and multiplatform.
To top it off We have made a comparison in which we put, white on black, the similarities and differences between the two consoles that are called to entertain us in the coming years. Thus, we talk about the common changes that SSDs or raytracing will bring, but also about the different approaches for backward compatibility, prices and formats or the way to market games.
And, as a complement to that extensive report, we have included another with a comic aesthetic from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is probably going to be the most requested exclusive game in the first weeks of the new generation, although it is also released on PS4. After having seen the Insomniac Games game exclusively for Spain and having talked at length with its top managers, we have dedicated an eight-page report to it, in which we tell everything there is to know about its protagonist, his story , its fights, its winter atmosphere or its use of the PS5 hardware.
It so happens that many of the games that are going to be released in the coming weeks will be intergenerational and, therefore, in addition to PS4, Xbox One and PC, they will also be improved on PS5 and Xbox Series XS. Hence The progress section can also be considered a complement to the special on the new generation. Not surprisingly, games such as Watch Dogs Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War or Cyberpunk 2077 parade through her. And we have not forgotten about Switch, which will receive Hyrule Warriors: The Age of Calamity, called to strike this Christmas.
The special on the next-gen is completed with a four-page report in which we review three decades of generational changes. If you comb your gray hair, you will surely have tears of nostalgia as you remember the progressive transitions through the 8, 16, 32-64 or 128-bit consoles, until you reach the 360-PS3–Wii and PS4-One-Wii generations U-Switch.
And, from there, we go to the retro section, where the protagonist is a report that, at least, will be curious. Seeing that the twenty-fifth anniversary of a classic like Time Crisis is about to be fulfilled, We wanted to dive into the prehistory of pistol arcades, and the result is a report that spans a vast period of time, from electromechanical machines of a century ago to the most reputable arcades of the 90s and beyond. The retro section is completed with a reminder of the trajectory of Michel Ancel (creator of Rayman, recently retired from video game development) and another of Moonwalker, the game that allied Michael Jackson and Sega a whopping 30 years ago.
Back in the present the analysis section features the first game show this fall. Among them, there are titles of the stature of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Star Wars Squadrons, Hades, Mafia: Definitive Edition, FIFA 21, Spelunky 2 or Kirby Fighters 2.
The magazine is completed with the sections El Sensor (we raffle three copies of Crash Bandicoot 4 among those who get the true-false right), Update yourself (with its news and opinion columns), The best (this month, with a top 10 flavored with ‘apple’) and My Favorite Terrors (starring a heavyweight game). The icing on the cake is a double poster that has the aforementioned Crash Bandicoot 4 on one side and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the other.
