PlayStation 5 Out Now

Spread the love

The PS5 is a superb console that offers a compelling next-gen gaming experience – and one that will likely only get better as more titles are added to the lineup. The PS5 proves itself to be both powerful and well-designed. A few small issues hold it back from being a five-star product at launch, but otherwise it’s a welcome upgrade on the PS4 and an exciting portal to next-gen gameplay.

One-Minute Review
We were hoping for great things from the PS5, and Sony’s next-gen console delivers.

Sony has re-imagined the key parts of the experience โ€“ from a simpler setup and new well-thought-out user interface, to a revolutionary controller and added bonuses for PS Plus members โ€“ and the result is a console that we can’t help but be impressed with.

It’s live today – you can buy PS5 in stores across the US and Australia (with the UK coming in a week). Gamestop had some high-value bundles go live, but Walmart will be adding stock later today. We’ve also added a section for the streaming media apps available on the PS5, so be sure to check that out, too.

Sure, there are problems with how few first-party games there are at launch โ€“ and it would have been nice to see support for previous generations of PlayStation titles, not just PS4 games โ€“ but the PlayStation 5 feels like a solid investment nevertheless, and we’re confident that the PS5 experience will improve with age.

You may feel tempted to run out and buy a 4K/120Hz TV with HDMI 2.1 to take full advantage of the console’s peak capabilities, but even without one you’ll enjoy unbelievably fast load times and a gorgeous new UI.

The PS5 caters to both primed and ready next-gen gamers and tepid PS4 owners looking to dip their toes into the future of gaming – and for the latter it’s a console that so seamlessly bridges the gap between the last generation and the next that you probably won’t need to boot up your PS4 ever again.

From big upgrades like the super-fast NVMe SSD and powerful GPU that enable higher frame rates and ray tracing, to subtle touches like the built-in microphone on the controller that can serve as a quick stand-in for a headset, the PS5 feels like it was built for ease of use as well as pure power.

We’ve yet to get our hands on the PS5 Digital Edition, which we may feel differently about, and we’ve yet to try out some of the PS5’s streaming apps and entertainment functionality, but if you’re still on the fence about buying the PS5, we can wholeheartedly recommend the console as a welcome upgrade over the PS4, and an exciting portal to next-gen gameplay.
