The successor to the PS4 is coming and will be hitting the shelves later on this year in 2020, easily making it a prime target for most people's Christmas shopping sprees. It will most definitely be giving the Xbox Series X a run for its money. It has been 7 years since the release of this predecessor, the PS4 and 4 the PS4 Pro. With next-level specs in 2016, the Pro offered some form of an upgrade from its older sibling, the standard PS4 with an increase in power that made it 4K-compatible and established it as the best way to play exclusives like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us 2. How will Sony's next-generation console be any different if not better than the PS4 Pro, we'll dive right into that soon!
PS5 Release Date
The PS5 will be released on November 12 in the United States as well as Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Mexico, and South Korea.
The PS5 will set you back for $499.99 / £449.99 for the standard edition of the console, which contains a disc drive to allow you to play physical discs as well as disc copies of PS4 games. The Digital Edition of the PS5 will cost $399.99 / £359.99, which only allows you to play games downloaded from the PS5 and does not have a disc drive. The disc drive on the PS5 also allows you to play 4K UHD Blu-Ray discs.
The PS5 Controller
To ring in this whole new era of console gaming, you would need the Sony DualSense controller to pave the way. The DualSense feature was first dangled in front of us when we found out that Travis Scott became the ambassador for the PS5, with a video of the rapper giving the PS5 a spin and highlighting the DualSense feature. Upon having the controller resting in your grasp, you can get a familiar sense of comfort similar to the DualShock 4 controller that came with the PS4, but more comfortable and lightweight. While the majority of the controller features a matte white plastic finish, the bottoms of the grips themselves have a slightly rougher texture that actually makes the controller easier to hold, and less likely to slip out of your hands. In fact, if you look closely, the texture is made up of tiny PlayStation face buttons, which is a neat little touch.
Most consoles don't come out with a full host of games immediately, so the bar might seem pretty low here and odds not that great for the PS5. That being said, what you make of the PlayStation 5's current game library largely depends on if you finished the masterpieces from the PS4's era - games like God of War, The Last of Us Part II, Marvel's Spider-Man and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. If the aforementioned games haven't met the finish line or found their way to your console, you can take advantage of the backwards compatibility feature on the PS5 and play games from the PS4 era. Every PS5 unit also comes with a pre-installed Astro's Playroom which showcases the features of PS5 and what the console can do. Even if Astro's Playroom won't win the gaming equivalent of the Grammy's, it is still a silly yet incredibly fun game to play.
While the repertoire of video games is still limited as of now, you can give this early list of heavy hitters a whirl like Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Demon Souls, which are from Sony's first-party studios. To jazz up your gaming experience, you can also pick up some big-name third-party games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Godfall and Watchdogs: Legion.
