Sony wants to get the PlayStation 5 off to a strong start and is turning to a trusted partner to help make it happen.

“[Demon’s Souls is] not available on other consoles for a limited time, ”reads the small print in the game’s trailer. “[It’s] also available on the PC. “
So Xbox gamers should be able to participate at some point.
