Sony’s next generation gaming console PlayStation 5 has arrived and it’s one step ahead in the console industry. With all new design and new controller the PlayStation 5 is up for a big market. The new console supports high refresh rates which makes the game play more smoother if you have a display which supports these refresh rates.

The PlayStation 5 are of two consoles, but they are largely the same

Sony is selling two version of PlayStation 5 for $499 & $399. The $399 is the digital edition which noticeably thinner than its sibling. The $499 one is the king with the 4K Blu-ray player with a bigger disk drive. Microsoft also has a powerful console in the Xbox Series X, which promises better graphics and faster loading times, and it’s also selling the somewhat lower-powered Xbox Series S.

The PlayStation 5 is 15.4inch tall with a massive body by which we can make out Sony is living up to the name legacy of the PlayStation. The design is very different compared to the older models such as PS4 but, you’ll get used to it when you start to play with it. That’ what they said!

The PS5 is powered by custom 8 core AMD Zen CPU and custom AMD Radeon RDN 2 based GPU which will provide a 10.28 Teraflops of raw graphical power. It comes with a 825GB of storage and 5.5GB/s of throughput — which could be fast enough to let game developers build levels without things like elevator rides or winding corridors that actually mask levels loading in the background. Just look at how much faster PS5 games loaded than their PS4 versions in our testing. Some of the space in the overall 825GB storage is used by the system where in reality you will have approx of 650GB storage for your actual game data. The PS5 supports up to 8K output and promises 4K graphics at up to a 120Hz refresh rate. The console’s improved horsepower also means that you can expect to see ray tracing, which can lead to more realistic effects in game environments like reflections in windows.

The PS5 has three USB-A ports — one on the front, two on the back — and one USB-C port on the front. There’s also an Ethernet port on the back of the console and 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6.


Sony stood on the top for their controller design and the dual shock controller has changed the way we use the gaming controllers from past 10 years. The new dual shock controller in the play station 5 has some has some brand new features which is the most interesting part of the whole PS5.The DualSense™ wireless controller for PS5 offers immersive haptic feedback,5 dynamic adaptive triggersand a built-in microphone, all integrated into an iconic design. In the DualShock 4 — the whole shape of the controller is new, with pointier handles and broader lines, and it all has a striking two-tone design. The DualShock 4’s “Share” button, which lets you grab screenshots, take videos, and broadcast gameplay, has been changed to the “Create” button on the DualSense, though it has similar functionality. In an improvement from the PS4, though, the PS5 automatically captures the last 60 minutes of your gameplay (up from the 15 minutes) at 1080p resolution and 60fps. The PS5 also lets you manually capture gameplay in 4K, though you’ll have to tweak a setting to do so. It’s not just the look of the DualSense that’s new, though. Traditional rumble has been replaced with haptic feedback, which should give you different levels of feedback depending on what’s happening in your game. The controller also has “adaptive triggers” that can simulate different resistances, which could be used to do things like add tension when you’re pulling back a bow. 

The DualSense also has a built-in microphone in addition to a speaker, but there’s still a 3.5mm headphone jack that you can plug headphones into if you prefer. It’s also the first Sony controller with a USB-C port.

If you want to buy more than one DualSense, additional controllers will run you $69.99 each, which is a slight increase from the $59.99 you originally paid for a DualShock 4. Sony is also selling a$29.99 for charging dockthat lets you charge two DualSense controllers at the same time.

The PS5 also supports 3D audio, which Sony said will let you “see with sound” in a commercial shared in August. We don’t know exactly how 3D audio will be utilized in games just yet, and it’s worth mentioning Sony also tried to sell it as a feature on the PS4, so we’ll have to wait to see just how much better 3D audio on the PS5 might be or if the $100 Pulse 3D wireless headset that’s “fine-tuned for 3D Audio on PS5 consoles” is more than just marketing.

Sony is also offering a collection of PS4 games that you can download and play on your PS5 at launch if you have a PlayStation Plus subscription. Some of Sony’s biggest first-party PS4 hits are part of the collection, but there are a number of third-party titles in the mix, too.


The PS5 has a brand-new user interface with a number of new features to make jumping into games more streamlined. Apps are divided into two sections — games and media, and if you’re familiar with the PS4’s interface, then the row of app icons in the games menu will look very familiar to you. But when you actually select a game, there’s now a lot more information to look at.

You can just hit the play button to dive into your game or look at the trophies you’ve collected or even Twitch streams of that game. But you can also select from “activities,” which let you jump right into a specific mission or mode of a game, and games even offer in-game tutorials to help you through a certain objective. (That tutorial feature is only available to PlayStation Plus subscribers, though.) And in-game, whenever you press the PlayStation button on the DualSense, you can access the “Control Center” menu, which gives you access to things like notifications, settings, and parties.
