The Sony PlayStation 5 is a powerful game console with an incredible controller and tons of potential. But it makes some noise and has a divisive design that’s far too large for some conventional entertainment spaces.
Sony’s PS5 is not just an awe-inspiring slab of shock and awe technology. There’s also something delightfully old school about it. It’s got buckets of next-gen performance on tap, but its proportions and design are truly something to behold. The PlayStation 5 radiates a sense of special that takes you back to more wonder-filled days when a console truly was a portal to another world of entertainment and escapism.
With incredibly fast load times, a revolutionary DualSense controller, and excellent exclusives, the PS5 is a must-have for PlayStation fans.
The PS5 is a confident step into the next-generation of gaming, with Sony’s evolutions across hardware, graphics, gameplay, and UI really paying off for PlayStation gamers.
The PS5 is a meaningful evolution of Sony’s achievements with its predecessor. It’s a gorgeously accessible machine with a forward-thinking plan for the coming generation, whether that’s through its nuanced SSD technology or growing library of worthwhile exclusives. Combine this with a compelling user interface, strong slate of launch experiences and a general ecosystem that embraces what came before it, and the PS5 is one of the best openers to a new generation we’ve had in some time. Once developers begin to truly test this new hardware, we’re all in for a treat.
Sony is riding a wave of immense popularity and the PS5 is up to the task.
Sony’s PS5 is exciting enough, providing solid 4K@60fps gameplay on AAA titles, without the truly next-gen DualSense controller thrown into the mix. Combined, the PS5 is a huge step forward for console gamers, and game performance will only get better as time goes on.
