What We Love About PlayStation 5; HiGift Reviewed
We’ve spent some time with Sony’s new PlayStation 5, and while it’s tempting to compare to Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, we decided to take a step back and look at the wider picture. After all, stats alone aren’t enough to determine whether a gaming console is good or bad. In today’s HiGift Blog article we reveal what we love about PlayStation 5.
Despite the fact that it is considered the lesser system in terms of hardware, there are many reasons to adore the Sony PS5, ranging from design to game catalog. We’ll look at the top six features of the PlayStation 5 in this article.
The PS5’s Design
Many people dislike how much bigger the PS5 is than the Xbox Series X. But just because it’s bigger doesn’t mean it’s not attractive, right? We adore the PS5’s curves, and the white and black design fits perfectly in any modern entertainment center.
We also like the new DualSense controller’s design. It has more curves than the DualShock 4, and the dual-toned design is visually appealing. We’re also relieved that Sony has finally shifted the light bar to the top, allowing us to see the charging status and other player information plainly.
The PS5’s Insane Storage Speed
Although the Sony PS5’s hardware is inferior to that of its Microsoft counterpart, the storage sector is one area where it outperforms the competition. The PS5’s inbuilt solid-state drive is lightning quick. It’s really faster than the majority of today’s high-end gaming PCs’ nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) solid state drives (SSDs).
The inbuilt SSD in the PS5 can read data at up to 5,500MB/s in uncompressed mode and roughly 8-9GB/s in compressed mode. These figures put the Xbox Series X to shame, with uncompressed data speeds of 2.4GB/s and compressed data speeds of 4.8GB/s.
The PS5 DualSense Controller Is Truly Next-Gen
The PS5’s new DualSense controller is a game-changer, and many people seem to be unaware of it. The rumble motors on the earlier DualShock 4 controller gave vibration feedback, but the PS5’s DualSense controller provides haptic feedback to enrich the experience even further.
Voice coil actuators vibrate inside the DualSense controller depending on how the power is delivered through them. Developers can use the haptics to convey the vibration waveform they want the gamers to feel. Because they’re far faster than rumble motors, developers can fine-tune the haptic sensation that the user receives.
Sony’s High-Quality Exclusive Games
The majority of us can agree that Sony has consistently released high-quality PlayStation 4 titles. For example, in 2018, God of War won the prestigious Game of the Year award, and in 2020, The Last of Us Part II did the same. You may reasonably anticipate the PS5 to maintain the same level of excellence.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a spin-off game, exceeded all of our expectations for a PS5 launch release. So we’re really looking forward to playing upcoming PS5 titles from Sony’s first-party creators like Horizon Forbidden West, God of War: Ragnarok, Gran Turismo 7, and more.
The PS5’s Support for Virtual Reality
Sony is the only console manufacturer promoting virtual reality. So, if you want to try virtual reality (VR) without having to create a powerful PC from the ground up, a PS5 is a far better alternative. Due to backward compatibility with PS4 titles, it supports the first-generation PlayStation VR headset. However, a PlayStation Camera adapter for the PS5 must be purchased or requested from Sony.
There Are Many Reasons to Love the PS5
It isn’t only about the power of a game system. It’s sometimes more about how the console utilizes the available hardware. With features like haptic feedback, adjustable triggers, incredible storage rates for immediate load times, and VR support, Sony has managed to make the most of the PS5’s capabilities.
These are what we love about PlayStation 5. What about you? What do you like about PS5?
