With Scott, the real title Jacques Webster, there’s expected to be a collab product line, including a brand new Nike SB Dunk Low colorway, with the PlayStation logo on its heel.
Together with the PS5 being hyped as it is, a few concerns are surrounding its availability. Sony has confirmed that the PS5’s launching will be online-only on account of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To prevent long queues out shops where social distancing and mask-wearing would not be possible to enforce, Sony has mandated that those seeking to buy its latest games on launch day will need to do this through the internet-store of the preferred retailer.
As for Michael B. Jordan, this experience with the PS5 is far from his first foray into gaming, with starred as Jace Stratton in Gears of War 3 and Justice Young at NBA 2K17. Jordan will also be generating a live-action Static Shock film. Though it doesn’t have a planned release date, the project is set to start”a new world based on black superheroes.” Jordan, whose breakout role was shooting prey Oscar Grant in 2013’s Fruitvale Station, has talked several times on the necessity for diversity in Hollywood. The actor spoke at a Black Lives Issue protest earlier this year, advocating for an increase in black talent and also for black stories to be told.
