The listings were spotted on Reddit (opens in new tab) and by Twitter games tipster Nibel - the latter even managed to grab screenshots of all eight, though most of them have been taken offline by now. Each dummy listing is composed of a title that references the game's publisher and a price of either £59.99 or £69.99. Assuming these placeholder listings were legitimate and were made visible by mistake, rather than being created by pranksters (opens in new tab), they give us some insight into upcoming PS5 games (opens in new tab) that could be announced soon.

Here are the eight games mentioned in the dummy listings. Each is designated as "2020" then ASIN (which stands for Amazon Standard Identification Number) then the name of the publisher, then another number, and finally PS5.
- 2K game
- Another 2K game
- Bethesda game
- Koch game
- Another Koch game
- Konami game
- Namco Bandai game
- Rockstar game
Given the two facts that they're showing up the day before the PS5 games event and each of those listings has 2020 in its dummy title, we may be looking at our earliest indication of the PS5 launch lineup. Or it could be nothing, since Amazon has had fake listings in the past - like those Amazon France fakes. In any case, we won't have to wait very long to find out.
