Demon's Souls -- $50, was $70
The protagonist of Demon's Souls going up against a massive creature.

PlayStation 4 classics such as Bloodborne and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice trace their roots back to 2009's Demon's Souls, which is now in the hands of a new generation of gamers with a remake for the PlayStation 5. The challenging/frustrating level of difficulty that has made "Souls-like" games so popular is retained in the new Demon's Souls, but with additional items, weapons, and armor to switch things up from the original. The enemies are vicious, the environments are unforgiving, and the boss fights are exhausting, so you'll likely see the iconic You Died screen an unpleasant number of times. Finally breaking through is a glorious feeling, though, and that's going to keep you hooked to Demon's Souls.

Former PS5 exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo Comes to Xbox Game Pass in April
Akito with KK and the neon colors of Tokyo and invading spirits.

Former PlayStation 5 exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo will launch for Xbox Series X/S and Windows PC on April 12. A free update called The Spider's Thread will release on the same day for all platforms, including Xbox Series X/S,  PC and PlayStation 5. The game is being added to Xbox Game Pass.

Ghostwire: Tokyo was first released on PS5 and PC on March 25, 2022. Despite Microsoft owning Bethesda at the time, preexisting agreements were honored and the game remained a timed console exclusive on PS5. The same situation occurred with Bethesda's Deathloop, which initially launched on PS5 and PC in September 2021 and then came to Xbox Series X/S a year later.

GTA 5 cheat codes for PS5, PS4, Xbox, and PC
Trevor firing an assault rifle in GTA 5.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the bestselling games of all time, well exceeding 100 million copies sold. It's easy to see why, too. Rockstar's signature sandbox franchise has always attracted large crowds, and its latest iteration -- which is weird to say, given that GTA 5 was released seven years ago -- is no different. The sandbox has never looked as good or been as open. GTA 5 may be bigger and better than its predecessors, but Rockstar hasn't lost the key aspects that make the series fun. Among them are cheat codes.

Cheat codes have been a mainstay of the Grand Theft Auto series for years. From spawning a few vehicles to loading your gun with flaming bullets, cheat codes turn GTA 5 into a god game, where you can control the parameters of the sandbox you're playing in. No matter what platform you're playing on, these GTA 5 cheats and secrets will work.

PS5 themes: Can you customize your homescreen?
A person plays Crash Bandicoot using a PS5 DualSense controller.

The PS5 launched with many features we loved from the PS4 missing. Over the years, a few have come back, but one that many aren't sure about is themes. These could be earned, downloaded, purchased, or come included with certain games that gave your home screen a new look and background soundtrack related to different games or concepts. This made customizing your home screen that much more fun and personal. However, is this feature on the PS5? Here's whether or not you can put custom themes on your new console, or change the background.
Does the PS5 have themes?

No, the PS5 does not have any themes. Instead, whenever you highlight a game or app on your home screen, the background will change to art related to that game, as well as show more information on it. While far from ideal, it is the closest we are likely to get to the themes we had on our PS4.
Can you change the background on a PS5?
Again, due to the PS5 dynamically changing the background depending on what you're currently looking at, there's no way to alter your background at this time. Since the background is constantly changing, even if you had a custom image, it would always be changing as you cycled through games. There are a few other ways you can customize your PS5, however, unless Sony gives us the option with an update, there's no way to set a theme on your PS5.
