Has there ever been a game that demoed what a next gen console is capable of, on launch window?
And for a full admission price?
Except Halo:CE. Everything else I can think of are useless tech demos.
Series X got Bright Memory: Infinite on launch day, which is the most impressive looking game that will be released this year. It has some crazy physics and Ray Tracing implementation. Gears 5 is supposed to receive an impressive update as well.
My memory isn't as good, but the ps3 got resistance and motorstorm, ps4 had killzone, ps5 has demon souls and spiderman, god fall doesn't seem appealing to me, though what I have seen of demon souls looks like it could be done on current gen.
