PlayStation 5: A Critical Review - 2 Months Later, How Good Is PS5? (Console, DualSense, UI, Games).
It's been two months since PS5 launched, and it's time we take a critical look at the console and give it a formal review. What is it really like to use and play daily? Between the console, DualSense, user experience, and games, we're gonna review all of it. This is PlayStation 5: the good, the bad, and the ugly. I'm in there too, for like - a minute. But we don't review me, thankfully.

    I wanna see how this holds up with things like ultra detail grass on 4k. Paid thousands on my build, and that shit struggles to hold 120 on 2k with r/t and everything on ultra. I think they're gonna need some serious down scaling to hold up 4k at 60 fps. Why in the fuck do any games even try 4k. Go 2k with higher detail and draw distance. 4k is still a gimmick. Even with all that ddr5 ram, it doesn't have the bandwidth to use it all. That still confuses me. That's a huge amount of ram, considering PlayStation uses its own architecture.

    PS5 still not accessibility friendly for Deaf and HOH users. No English closed captioning appear on any videos in Explore section even it is enabled on. Even PS5 does not translate players voice to text. Hope Sony improve these features and would appreciate to have a new feature: real-time captioning powered by A.I.

    Bethesda becoming exclusive to Xbox is a big disappointment. Always had PlayStation but I’m in two minds now, especially with gt7 delayed till next year

    Well, the fact that the storage expansion slot is actually INSIDE the console, is the reason why i'm going to wait for affordable USB-Stick like NvMe's, for better or worse. I'll be damned to open up the console that i have waited over four and a half months to get my hands on. Why they didn't place a Storage Expansion slot on the back (or front) of the console like the Xbox Series X has, is completely beyond me.

    I hate the design. Is just too bold... it will never fit in peoples living room aesthetics. The design is in my opinion a big middle finger to the customer like we don't care what you think... Like apple... and that's a whole shitstorm of its own. No one knows where to put the thing. I'm going to Ignore this phat version of the PS5... ... It's just like... as if... Sony had a miscarriage... Just kept is black or something then It could fitt in a little.

    I just got my PS5 and I'm really annoyed that there's no Optical Audio out. I'm an Xbox convert so I'm used to a lot of outputs including the optical audio. Other than that, great console... it had to be after a 5 month pre-order wait lol

    I own a PS5, series X, and a switch. The only console i play on is my series X with gamepass ultimate. The Dualsense controller is cool, but the series X controller wins by comfort and 40+ hours of battery life. I like the smaller size of the series X controller. And i hate the thumbsticks on the ps5 are in the middle of the controller. The thumbsticks on the Xbox controller feels so much better. Smart delivery, VRR, quick resume, 1440P, auto hdr, fps boost, bigger SSD, storrage upgrade posible. It is all missing on the ps5. If i have to choose between the 2, i Will sell my ps5 and keep my series X. Comming from a PS4 pro. Iam not a fanboy, i like Both systems. But the Series X wins this gen. If you have 500 spend it on the series X. Sorry for my english 😉 and with the newest upgrade we have Dolby vision gaming on the Series X 💪🏼

    At this point, Imma just believe that Sony is making it seem as if they can't get the consoles out fast enough (or whatever BS reason they're saying) because they want people to rush to buy them so that they can conduct a massive test on bugs (and what not). So instead of doing a massive recall or rush to patch the heck outta of the console all year long, they only released a few out. Watch, by the end of the year, we're gonna see the PS5 Slim/PS5 Pro and they will be bug free with more storage.

    I just love how with each generation of playstation, it's always a new style and has its own unqiue sounds and features. If you look at each playstation they're all very different from each other. I just wished the Series X did the same because its interface is nearly identical to xbox one and the controller is basically the same. Consumers won't feel much of a change in anything (except for games obviously) and it would basically just feel like an xbox one but much more powerful. Sure, there's nothing wrong with that but it wouldve been nice to see changes considering the fact that consoles will last an average of 7 years

  • Richard Guadarrama
    Richard Guadarrama

    They are stock everywhere on Ebay but the stores. And on Ebay they are up to 1k. People spend 1k buying a PS5 because they are desperate to get there hands on a console. Almost all the scalpers snatched them with bots and what sucks is that people are buying them and giving the scalpers the satisfaction. But there is a catch though, if you buy it from a 3rd party and it breaks, you won't be covered and you will be stuck with a $500 PS5 that you paid 1k for, while the scalper is having the prime of his life. You'll be stuck with a broken PS5. So think carefully before buying one because it can be a total loss and run the risk of paying more for repair than what the item was worth.

  • Archangel980

    The more I play my PS5 the more I’m convinced it was rushed, the UI is absolute garbage, no smart delivery, and the worst is no 1440p option. Anyone rushing to get this just wait, the first generation of PS5 is trash.

    Not in a rush! Around Christmas time it will be down to $400 bucks anyway. My neighbor has one and imo I see no difference between 5 and 4. The lay out that's it. Gaming is the same and graphics don't make you go WOW "enough" to distinguish one from the other. All the extra this and that, slots, wireless this gigahertz that don't mean crap. Especially when it didn't b4! But all you need is a geek coming around to pull up the stats, power, numbers, blah blah. Doesn't change the fact that there's not that much difference in gaming between the two. Im glad they didn't jump on the Nvidia bandwagon! With its kiddy like graphics. Been that way for years! AMD is crisp, sharp, and more realistic. My coustom P.C makes 5 look like an Atari. Js

      @alien who loves youtube if you want good quality games definitely go for a ps5 your lucky if you haven’t played. Any PlayStation games you’ll have a lot of games to play and it has adaptive triggers on the controller and haptic feedback there are a lot of great games and you’ll love it I would go with the ps5

  • Hulstpower

    I just got my ps5 digital edition this weekend, stil dont like the design but that is pure taste some will some dont. I had to get used to the ps5 menu and where everything was and how since i sold my pro and been using a xbox for the last year and especialy my series x. Love the new controller and menu i also like after getting used to it, the only thing i dont like and sony really needs to fix is that you download the game for the console your using so if you use a ps5 you get a ps5 game and not the ps4 version (for some reason i get get the ps5 version of warzone, if anybody knows how to get it please tell me). Other than that i think both ps and xbox has there pro and cons and i loved them both, hopefully switch pro also comes this year and im a happy 4k gamer.

    • Hulstpower

      @ddp540 that is what I had people like you can feel the rumble I like what they said when switch launched. And that is what it was for me the rumble is like the one for the switch and the triggers are different ok but not mind blowing. I have to say I only played astro with these features.

    • ddp540

      I cant wait to try the afraid its been so hyped up im gonna be disappointed when i finally get to try it

    I strongly suggest spend money on musical gear, travels or food but yeh .. play videogames its great to use a joypad thinking you do cool stuff pressing buttons and developing arthritis .. and comes from a growing up gamer but this is going too far and lacks in real life satisfaction apart those milking our money and time.
