PS5 review – Sony has finally launched their next generation game console in India, the PlayStation 5. The console has been in development for many years now, and has some major upgrades over the PlayStation 4 Pro, which was released more than 4 years ago. Similar to the last generation, Sony chose AMD CPUs and GPUs to power the console, and they are significantly more powerful than any of the previous generation.
- Fantastic new controller
- Streamlined UI puts games first
- Great day-one exclusive game lineup
- Included Astro’s Playroom game is fantastic
- The bold design is borderline impractical for small spaces
- Syncing up cloud saves can be a pain
- I don’t love the clunky-feeling plastic stand
- Some games force you to choose between resolution, frame rate and ray tracing
PS5 review – design
call it futuristic,Sony made sure that the PS5 is an eye catcher. The tower design looks like something out of a science fiction movie. And the fact that it sits right there with glowing blue, white, and yellow lights from the inside looks like a fragment of a spaceship – you won’t be able to miss it.
However, as we said for the Xbox Series X, the design for the PS5 is also “love it or hate it”. The only difference is that the customization option for the two-tone look is definitely bigger and the design language more polarizing. What contributes to the overall picture are the subtle breathing light effects. The source is not visible, but the reflections on the sidewalls from the inside make it look stunning when there is no ambient lighting.
