    I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about this whole, sign up for an opportunity to purchase the PS5 thing but still went for it because Amazon hasn’t let me down in well over a decade. I can’t remember when I signed up for the invitation invite but I can remember when I received the 72 hour email, the day after Christmas. It must’ve been fate because my family got cash for Christmas so we had a wad of cash burning a hole in our pockets. We slept on it just in case we weren’t sure we wanted it, we just recently bought a new gaming pc and the Xbox x-series console earlier in the year. Well you obviously know we decided in favor of the PS5 so it was ordered on the 27th of Dec. Two days later, we’ve received it and have already spent the time setting it up and updating it. We don’t even have new games for it yet but we knew we wouldn’t get an opportunity to purchase it again any time soon. Once the new Dragon Quest and Kingdom Hearts games come out, we’ll be ready, it’s the first time we’ve ever purchased the console before the games release. The only downside imo is the size of the console, it’s a big eyesore. I prefer the black consoles over the lighter color consoles, wish it was black.

    The lauded and scarce PS5 console finally arrived for this humble reviewer after winning a chance to buy via Amazon (the third entry, the second win). The machine is enormous, as other have no doubt noted, dwarfing its predecessor to the point of near absurdity. Thankfully, apart from a familiar whir when starting up, it is whisper quiet. Once a game or film is loaded, there are virtually no load times. The interfaces are easy to use and downloads are quick from the Playstation Store. If you have a mounted TV, beware that the HDMI cable provided is woefully short and despite its towering height, you’ll probably need to prop your console up on something in order to reach to intended input port. Be sure to affix to the stand first as the beast does tend to be top-heavy. If you’re like me, you’ll tire quickly of the loud, sometimes obnoxious sounds emanating from the controller during play. The haptic feedback is a nice touch, though. The graphical improvements over the PS4 are the true stars of the show, however. Do yourself a favor and download Demons’ Souls, even, or especially, if the lack of graphical polish in prior From Software games has depressed you. Flip the game to Vivid mode and prepare to be wowed by the the cleanness, the shimmer, the smoothness. Indeed, from top to bottom (and what a journey that is geographically across the console!), the PS5 is very, very smooth.

    I just wanted to give a couple of quick points of note since everyone knows the console by now through reviews if nothing else.

    First, it should be noted that this is an updated version of the PS5 which has a new motherboard design for better cooling and power efficiency. Tech websites have tested both the original (1000 series) as well as first updated version (1100 series) and then this one (1200 series). The first two series had the same motherboard design, but the 1200 series has a much smaller motherboard and cooling design which is 2.5 pounds lighter by themselves. A couple of friends have the 1100 series bought a year ago and they are noticeably heavier.

    Second, the slight tulip shaped case design really does not like being laid to the side like previous PS consoles that could be horizontal or vertical for cabinet diversity. It just looks wrong and is not stable.

    That said, I bought the PS5 mostly for GT7 and other racing games and am not disappointing in 4K quality running a Gigabyte Aorus 48″ OLED 120Hz gaming monitor (LG C1 based OLED panel). I already have a $2,850 high end PC gaming rig built around an RTX 3080 Ti video card for that monitor, and for the $500 retail price in Blu Ray form, I can honestly say for the first time ever a console can hold its own in the gaming world up against we PC gods at the highest resolutions and frame rates!

    Summary: If you’re currently using a base PS4 – I recommend this. If you’re using a PS4 Pro – wait a bit.

    This is a HUGE upgrade from my 2013 base PS4. The games run much better, the console is silent (disc drive aside), and the UI is easy to get used to.

    In my opinion the console looks better in the vertical position, but if you plan to have it horizontal you can easily hide an extended storage drive under it!

    The controller is very nice. It’s not much different from the Dualshock 4 controller, but to me it’s more comfortable with it’s chunkier size. Believe it or not, the built-in mic in the controller is actually pretty decent and the mute button is a very welcome addition!

    With all that said, there still isn’t much games exclusive to the console that really take advantage of it’s hardware. I can’t imagine there’s much of a difference with the current games between PS5 and PS4 Pro.
    I kinda do wish I waited another few months, but it is definitely a big improvement over the base PS4.
    In fact, the only thing that doesn’t seem to carry over are the themes. But that aside there isn’t much of a reason to keep a PS4 afterwards.

    All in all, an excellent console and I’m excited for future games!
