With Microsoft's Xbox Series X messaging faltering, one might think that Sony and its PlayStation 5 (PS5) console would have an easy time establishing its value proposition.

But with only one major game (Spider-Man Miles Morales) even scheduled for launch, what does it mean when your company can't (or won't) explain whether that one thing is a sequel, remaster, expansion, enhancement, or standalone product.

And what does it mean for the competition?

With Great Enhancements, Comes Great Responsibility...in Virtual Legality.
