You know your console is a good one when you can't keep it on the shelf even two years after you released it. That is the case with the PlayStation 5. A combination of chip shortages and high demand from gamers around the world has made it difficult for many to secure this next-generation console.
Being unwilling to bend to the will of scalpers, I was only able to purchase one in the past few months. The experience on the PlayStation 5 is unlike any other console we've seen in the gaming realm. 4K graphics, lightning-fast loading speeds, and a new DualSense controller are just a few of the features that set this console above the rest.
The new controller for the PS5 allows you to feel every step, gunshot, and surrounding movement, so you can take full control of your gaming experience. With haptic feedback, adaptable triggers, and a built-in microphone, this controller is unmatched by competitors, and it's the best we've seen in console gaming.
I've found them to be far more comfortable than the PlayStation 4 controllers. Although, if you're continually pressing L2 or R2 during a game to pull off combos, for example, I've found it can be a strain on your fingers.
There are two models available: A digital download-only version, and one with a disc drive. Generally, as the digital edition is cheaper, this one tends to sell out quickly. If you're trying to buy one on Amazon, stocks sell out fast.
A question I'm asked is whether or not keeping your PlayStation 5 vertical will damage it. With rumors circling social media, it's worth noting that the original claim was based on a 'misunderstanding' and, aesthetically, you can choose either vertical or horizontal without worry.
