Earlier this month, Sony confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales would launch on PlayStation 4 as well as PlayStation 5. But what might be even more surprising than this is that Insomniac Game's upcoming web-swinging adventure will actually take up less space on a PS5 than it will on a PS4.
According to a PlayStation Store listing spotted by users on ResetEra, Spider-Man: Miles Morales weighs in at a pretty chonky 50GB on the next-gen PlayStation. The PS4 version, meanwhile, requires 52GB. It's hardly the most mind-blowing difference in size, I grant you... but it's interesting to see the current-gen version needing more space - presumably this is because it's asking more of the older hardware.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales launches alongside the PlayStation 5 on November 19th here in the UK. It'll also be available on PlayStation 4 the same day, if you're not quite ready to make the upgrade... and if you can really live with that extra 2GB storage requirement. I know I'll have to do some soul searching to work out if I can handle that.
"We know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times," Sony wrote of the decision to put Spidey on current and next-gen hardware. "We're happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4.

"While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive."
There's no word yet on if other PlayStation 5 titles like Demon's Souls and God Of War: Ragnarok will also come to PS4, but I think we can safely assume that these will remain strictly next-gen experiences. Hell, did you see that Demon's Souls PS5 demo? There's no way that's running on a PS4 without the console going supernova.
The good news is that we've got plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming God Of War at least, as it won't be launching until later on next year at the very earliest.
