PS5: 3 Months Later Review
So it’s been 3 months since I picked up the PS5 at launch, and although it’s been a great next-gen console, it’s not been 100% perfect. This is my 3 months later, honest review of the PlayStation 5. What I like, dislike, what I’d change and what issues I’ve had.
This video is in Partnership with Stereo. Download Stereo and join me for my next live show here: AD
We’ll take a look at the PS5 DualSense controller, games, UI, speed, memory and loads more. So if you're thinking "should I buy a PS5?", let me try and answer that today with my experience so far. Also, ask me ANYTHING and I'll get back to you.
Ultimately, would I recommend getting a PS5 and is it worth upgrading from the PS4/PS4 Pro? #PlayStation5 #PS5 #Review

      Managed to get one at the start of the week. Walked into my local Argos on the off chance and they had one console in stock 😂

    • Zander

      I'm just gonna wait a while until they stop doing ps4 games and the ps5's go down in price. Really can't see the point in spending so much time and energy in trying to get it.

    Ps5 sucks. I'm not happy with it. I got one of the newest tv by Samsung and it still sucks. The only thing that I do like is that it loads games faster..

      @SpawnPoiint Thanks man I hope it works ✌🏻

    • SpawnPoiint

      For me it was the PS5 updates at the time, so after a few weeks it sorted itself out. Make sure you're on the latest update (another update is coming today/tomorrow too).

  • luevas

    I'm not buying a PS5 until Sony launches an updated model with at least double the storage capacity. My 512gb PS4 is enough of a headache with it's last gen file sizes, so I can't imagine how quickly the launch model's tiny SSD will fill up.


    Still waiting...... dam Sony sucks ass

    Still trying to get my hands on a ps5 since the release date i gave my ps4 to an 8year old that’s never had a Game console before thinking I would get a ps5 on its release oh well at least the kids having fun thats all that matters I have never seen something so impossible to get a hold of. Let’s hope we all manage to buy one by 2022 lol

    The touchpad on the DualShock 4 and dual sense are just a gimmick. The only time I used it on the PS4 (bear in mind I havent played many games) was on infamous second son (great game and inexpensive), which was a PS exclusive.

    It’s powerful, especially for people who never gamed on a PC but the UI absolutely sucks ass. Very unintuitive and complicated. I can’t believe I’m about to say this but PS3 had the best cleanest and quickest UI.

    recently realised that with screen share you can watch your friend playing and they can watch you at the same time with pip, if you both screen share. also you can also listen to spotify at the same time. unlike ps4 you can now stream while listening to spotify

  • AvarionUK

    Gotta be honest, had a PS5 for about 3 weeks now. Not impressed. Its a great console in terms of power don't get me wrong. But there are hardly any games for it. The only game that can show off PS5's ability is Astrobot's Playroom. Demon Souls graphically. That's really it. There are hardly any PS4 upgrades and PS4 game's run as poor as they did on a PS4 pro or sometimes worse. Don't expect any Playstation Plus Collection games to play any better than its predecessor. The UI is okay but feels a bit clunky and sometimes have to really think about where I need to navigate to get to trophies or downloads for example. It does make sense ish but PS4's UI just makes so much sense I feel like they have broken something that didn't need to be fixed. The store is speedy but they have got rid of a demo section so the only way you're going to be able to download Demo's IE Resi Village, you just have to know its there and look for it. PS4 to PS5 upgrades are confusing, you either have to press options on the game you're playing and make sure the game version is set to PS5, some games are automatically patched as a PS4 game with 'PS5 enhancements' but still identifies as a PS4 title or you find it in the store as a free upgrade or purchase. Which brings me onto my next point, I downloaded Control on PSPlus a few months ago on PS4. But because I added Control via PS4 and not my phone or a PS5 at the time as I didn't own one. I am not eligible for the PS5 version and therethore have to pay full price just to show off what the PS5 can do. Its an absolute mess and the only thing this PS5 is good for is no fan noise.

    I'm not gonna lie I took a portion of my stimulus and overpaid for a ps5. It's was the ONLY way to insure that I'd get one & actually be able to afford it on my income. I ended up blessing someone $900 🤦🏿‍♂️ for the system that came with extra controller, Spiderman & the wireless ps5 headset. Just got it 3 days ago. I'M HAPPY BUT NOW I NEED A BETTER TV THAT I CAN'T AFFORD 🥺

  • xHavoc2009

    So I take that the adaptive triggers with shooter games is not limited to COD, and is the same with Fortnite or Apex Legends? Btw that driving game he kept playing is that Dirt 5 or something it looks cool.

  • Mrhibyez

    Hey dude, nice video thanks for that. Question about the position, I’ve got the ps5 same position as yours however doesn’t have so much space between ps5 and top side of the furniture. Got more space from left and right side but not much on top it’s very tight. Reckon it will cause a problem in the near future ? Thanks would be cool if you could reply

    I have achieved the Platinum trophy and also 100% gamer score. I now have both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which was sort of the plan but in the long run, I never thought that I would have brought both consoles within the space of a week. My first time buying a Sony console since the PS3, which I hated, in fact I have hated all of Sony's consoles. However, this one is pretty good, the controller is Nintendo awesome as it is usually Nintendo that produces ground breaking hardware and Sony and Xbox try to follow them eventually. Astro's Playground is a great platformer, but if your controller breaks then pretty much the game is useless and it has been reported that a lot of controllers have been broken with about 200 hours worth of game play. I am looking at buying a wrap for the Xbox, as I really did not want to buy a black console, I was going to wait until they released a white version, however with a wrap that is going to save me having to upgrade in the future. Hard drive space on the PS5 is a MASSIVE issues, especially coming from the Xbox, where you can fit one or two more games on that hard drive. I would sooner have more storage than slightly faster load times. If you are new to PS Plus, then I was disappointed to start with, I thought that was where the games were, but you have to pay for PS now as well, so around £100 a year, the same roughly as Xbox. My Xbox and PS5 are both turned off, and I am bored now. The fun was not being able to buy them, and not taking no for an answer and stalking websites for weeks on end, refreshing the page every minute. However, once I finish this game on my PC, then I shall be doing more console gaming. If anyone wants to add me, my gamer tags are original - PS5 MarkNorville - Xbox Mark Norville. My OCD cannot handle that with Playstation you cannot have spaces :(

    I have never filled up storage on a video game console Faster than this thing only 600 some gigabytes is a little absurd they need to come out with this SSD upgrade ASAP. Also the user interface is pretty horrible. But it’s a pretty dope machine minus those two issues

    I bought a brand new and still sealed PS5 off a scalper last week for £570 only because i managed to sell my PS4 pro for £150 and because the scalper had amazing feedback on ebay. It also arrived next day by UPS. I gave in i just could not get a hold of one any other way.

    What about the 130 games I've bought digitally for the PS4? Also, how many games can I have installed at the same time? Like on my PS4 slim, I can have like 5 or 6 before having to add storage.... Despite your answers, I'm STILL trying to buy a PS5. Trying to get a standard (disc)version for 3 months now and just cannot get my hands on one. I REFUSE to give anyone more than the MSRP which as you all know is $499 but I see them online for upwards of $1,050!! That's gross. Dirty fuckin scalping bastards! Anyway, great video mate. Cheers from Connecticut, U.S.A .

      @SpawnPoiint thanks for the quick reply. Guess I'm sitting on my money til I can get one. Cheers.

    • SpawnPoiint

      I know, those prices are insane, and I hope no one pays over MSRP. But answering your questions, any digital games (well 99% of them) can be re-downloaded to the PS5. I've done this with loads of games already. I have about 9 games on the internal SSD drive, and then maybe 10-12 on the external SSD (1 TB). So I guess it depends on the game size.

    7:15 I’ve actually had trouble with the saved data when you transfer all your ps4 games to the ps5 via Hard Drive. I’d say at least 20% of my games were able to download and I had like 50 games on there. Once you transfer the hard drive MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD SAVED DATA THROUGH ICLOUD!! I made a mistake and tried playing God of War without downloading my data and after I did that my data wouldn’t appear. Need to start all over now. Learn from my mistakes lol

    Got mine today.... Haven't done much more than transfer files and start some downloads, so I can't say too much other than the internet on this thing SUCKS!!! I can put my Series S in sleep mode while downloading 100GB+ worth of games and go about business as regular when it comes to online. On my laptop I was having issues on a streaming site earlier, but thought it was just them. I come here, and I can't stream this video without buffering in 1440p. The way things are looking now, there's no way I can download games during the day with a kid doing school online and a wife working from home. Will do more tests on my day off.
