Though the Sony PlayStation 5 was released a year ago, additional features added to it have made it a gaming console worth buying. There are two versions of this, the standard PS5 and the cheaper Digital version. Though the PlayStation 5 release date was November 11, 2020, it wasn’t easily available due to the unavailability of stock and other issues. Now that it’s easily available here on Sole Seriouss at a competitive price, let’s see why you should buy this latest gaming console.
What to expect with the Sony PlayStation 5?
Design- Though the Sony PlayStation 5 is much bigger than its peers, the features that it provides compensates for the extra space you might need to store this gaming console. Sony gives the flexibility to put the PS5 either vertically or horizontally, with a stand that supports both orientations. It has a unique design that sets it apart from its peers, many gaming enthusiasts even compare its peers to be ‘children’s toys’ when kept side-by-side.
Ports and Expansion- The PS5 comes with the most standard ports- a high-speed USB Type-A port in the front along with a USB Type C port in the back. Besides this, you have the Ethernet jack, an HDMI 2.1 port, and an AC adapter at the rear. You also have the option to add SSD storage by opening up the console, but you will have to adhere to Sony’s strict requirements to do so. Lastly, you can use external hard drives to save files or digital PS4 games to the gaming console.
Interface- Compared to its predecessor, the PS5’s interface is attractive, clean, and user-friendly. There are many new features, like directly going on a game’s quest from the home menu rather than waiting for the game to boot up. Though there aren’t many customization options, the PS5 does offer you a better UI/UX experience. Those who have used the PlayStation 4 will need to get used to the PlayStation button being used for a different set of uses in the PS5 as compared to the PS4.
DualSense Controller- The PlayStation 5’s USP would certainly be its DualSense controller, which uses haptic feedback, adaptable triggers, and a built-in speaker to give an immersive gaming experience. To start with, you can try the pre-installed Astro’s Playroom game to experience this. While holding the controller, you’ll feel the subtle sensation of the sand while walking through a virtual storm, or a smooth gliding experience while skating on a virtual rink, and many other such subtle experiences with this controller.
However, the flipside is that there are only a few games that are integrated with these unique features of the DualSense controller. These include Spider-Man, Godfall, Sackboy, and Astro’s Playroom. Though this controller is significantly bigger, it works just fine with older games that do not come integrated with the DualSense technology.
Load times and performance- There is no doubt the PS5 comes loaded with a performance capability that rivals its peers. From short load times to amazing details in each game, the PS5 is one heck of a gaming console. When playing Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you can literally see the reflection of one Manhattan skyscraper on the next, while giving you a rich graphic experience that is unmatched elsewhere.
Backward compatibility- The PS5 supports most games that you had on the PS4. This includes games like the God of War, Last of Us Part II, Tetris effect, and others. These games worked in both digital and disc-based versions of the PS5, while you could also watch movies on the system's 4K Blu-ray drive. The PS5 also allows the use of DualShock 4 controllers of its predecessor- you can connect these with a USB cable. Even the PS4 headsets could be used on the DualSense’s 3.5mm audio jack. In fact, you can even use third-party wired controllers like the Victrix Pro FS and the Hori Fightpad by connecting them to the USB ports.
Apps- Besides gaming, the PlayStation 5 also has useful entertainment apps like Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus, Prime Video, and even the latest Apple TV Plus. These apps work just as well on the PS5 as you would expect it to work otherwise. In fact, you can easily access these services with a Media button on the home screen. You do not need to worry about where to buy Sony PlayStation 5, its features and after-sale service are what matters when you buy this amazing gizmo.
Heat and Noise- Due to its unique design and extra-powerful internal fan, the PlayStation 5 does not heat up quickly or make any noise when in use. Though some gamers complain there are rarely audible noises when used for extensive gaming, the PS5 will not heat up or make noises when using it.
3D audio- For an immersive experience, you could use good-quality headphones to hear subtle sounds in the games. Though this is available for most supported games, you can get the best experience with Sony’s new Pulse 3D Wireless headsets which are optimized for the PS5. Gamers have appreciated the intricate faint sounds they could hear when playing games like Astro’s Playroom, where they could hear even the rain falling and the breeze blowing when at play.
The Sony PlayStation 5 is one of the best gaming consoles out there. Besides a stellar performance, the attention to detail given in the DualSense controllers and the audio give you an immersive gaming experience.
