    Amazon sellling ‘by invitation’ – well I signed up in September thinking I may be lucky and get one for Christmas but it was ONLY TWO WEEKS for Amazon to send the invite email and 3 days later after buying it my PS5 arrived. So it wasn’t very long to wait :)It’s great of course but it loses a star because it’s a HUGE ugly monster, the PS4 is a midget by comparison. So be mindful of the dimensions as it may not physically fit where you want it to.

    This PlayStation 5 console has been really good in terms of speed, settings and having multiple benefits for the player however the most important thing is that’s as of today it is lacking PS5 games as you can play ps4 games benefiting from loading times. Leading to the point that right now is buying a PS5 to mostly play PS4 games.

    Pros.. amazing graphic, games load super fast, controller has special effects, mich more than a simple vibration. I can convert ps4 games to ps5 version (at least it worked with FIFA)Cons.. it’s HUGE. It doesn’t fit anyware and it’s also pretty noisy because of the cooling system. And the price of console and games it’s ridiculously high. Overall i don’t regret buying it, but i wish it was more compact.

    So after a long wait I finally join the current console generation.The hardware seems well built and designed, minimal fan noise for, but atheistically it’s a little bit of an eyesore in my opinion, and it’s absolutely huge.I don’t massively appreciate the graphical upgrade from PS4 either, sometimes when watching footage I can’t really tell if it’s a ps4 or ps5 game. However it certainly seems to have more horsepower under the hood, games like cyberpunk were unplayable on ps4, but now can be enjoyed.Backwards compatibility seems really good so far, with the exception of the ps2 games that were adapted for ps4.The disc version is the version to get, I’ve 2 games and I saved £60 compared to the PSN store prices.The higher tiers of PS+ now provide access to a lot of decent games and provides access to a wealth of content without having to purchase them all individually.Buy the version with the drive and consider upgrading you PS+ subscription and its a reasonable entertainment device.

    TL;DR: Great hardware let down by Sony policies that mean a really poor line-up of games that actually take advantage of the new PS5 features.**May 2022 Update: I have both HFW and GT7 and they are great! Both look amazing and the gameplay is also brilliant (ignoring Polyphony Digital doing stupid stuff with the GT7 economy, that is). I’m still playing more PS4 titles than PS5 titles on it though…**In full:To start with, let me say that the hardware itself is great. It runs really well and almost silently most of the time, looks great and functions very well.What lets it down is the lack of AAA titles. If you like your FIFA, more power to you, but lootbox farming isn’t my thing. I can’t wait for Gran Turismo 7 but honestly, that and the new Horizon Zero Dawn, are the only games I want and the only two PS5 games I am intending to buy (at time of writing). Neither of them are out until 2022.Sony originally said, as they have done with all other consoles, that they ‘believe in generations’, by which they mean that the latest gen console is their focus. They fairly quickly went against that and decided that most games have to have a PS4 and a PS5 version. That all sounds great but it means that games are made for the PS4 and then upscaled to the PS5, leaving out things like making use of the haptic feedback of the controllers or developing games that are supposed to run at 4k, 120fps that were all touted as PS5 selling points. The £40ish price point for new console games has always been a thing for as long as I can remember but with PS4 still being as much of a focus as PS5, PS4 games are continuing to be at that price point while PS5 games are around £70.On top of that, games like Cyberpunk, the new PES, Battlefield 2042 and others have all been rushed to release and in most cases are flat out broken. These are not worth £45 in their current state, let alone £80+ for PS5 special editions. Notable exceptions to this are Warframe (free to play) and I have been extremely impressed with Ghost of Tsushima which, despite being originally a PS4 release, seems to have done a fantastic job of using the graphical and controller feedback upgrades of the PS5.Even as lifelong PlayStation fan, I can honestly say that I regret buying a PS5 when I did (April 2021) because I am basically using it as a PS4. I really hope that things will change in 2022 and we start to see some great games come to the console but I am not going to hold my breath.If you can’t get one of these for love nor money, don’t worry – until the games line-up gets better, you really aren’t missing out on much over a PS4.

    Weird noise and overheat. Kinda sad, had to return it, probably I will wait until some software updates/ or pro version, or even swap to xbox.

    I was lucky enough to get the PS5 from Amazon on release date. Having used it for several hours every week, I am satisfied with the purchase.For me, the biggest advantage over the PS4 is the loading times. Everything loads so much more quickly now, and you can jump into specific parts of a game (for example, a specific mission in Spider-Man or diving into a specific mode in Fortnite) straight from the home screen of the console.The next big improvement is the graphics. Almost all of the triple-A games run at 4K 60FPS and they look great. There is also ray-tracing in some games, which provides life-like reflections which really make the games look terrific. However, this always comes with a compromise of reduced resolution/ frame-rate. Sony is offering an in-between mode in some of its first-party games, such as Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, known as “Performance Ray-Tracing”, which gives you both the smooth frame rate AND ray-tracing, but with a reduced resolution, and I think that this the best option.The final great thing to mention is the Dualsense controller. It is so much more comfortable (and quite a bit bigger) than the Dualshock 4 and the haptics are absolutely exceptional when used to full-effect. Astro’s Playroom, which is pre-installed on every console, is a must-play to experience the magic of the controller (also you should play it anyway, it’s a very fun game!)I do have some negatives which prevent me from giving the console a full five-stars: first of all, the price of games is getting ridiculous. Sony are charging £70 for almost all of their first-party exclusives and lots of other companies are following suit. This is a big increase over the previous generation and when you look at what Xbox is doing with Gamepass it becomes a bitter pill to swallow.The next annoying thing is installing the PS5 version of games. It can often be difficult to know whether you are downloading a PS4 or PS5 version of a game from your library because it doesn’t make it clear which is which. It should just automatically download the PS5 version if you are on a PS5! I don’t know how Sony hasn’t managed to crack this when Xbox does it perfectly with their “Smart Delivery”.Last of all, there is a lack of games. Don’t get me wrong – Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy, Astro’s Playroom, Returnal and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart are all good games to varying degrees, but having played all of them (yes, I am getting desperate), I wouldn’t go out of my way to get a PS5 just to play any one of them. None of them are killer apps and I think we will be waiting until the next God of War until there is something truly essential on the console. So, if you can’t get your hands on a PS5, don’t fret. All you are really missing out on is the convenience of fast loading times, nicer graphics and a fancy controller. But in terms of must-play video games, the PS5 is still in its infancy.

    **Update at the bottom**So having owned and used the PS5 for just over a month now, I thought I’d share my initial impressions via this review.The console is big, probably the biggest I’ve owned, and I’ve had a fair few. With that said when stood vertically on the supplied stand it really doesn’t take up a great deal of space alongside a TV, or on a desk besides a monitor. Even horizontally it will only take up the same space as traditional HiFi seperate unit. It just feels looks larger due to its design and colour.Within that large casing it houses a substantial cooling solution. During use the fan is exceptionally quiet and I am yet to hear it step up to levels that are audible in normal circumstances. What can clearly been heard is the optical drive. You know when the BD drive is spinning. It’s a little disappointing compared to the relative serenity of the rest of the system. Thankfully its rare the drive needs to work outside of installation, or initialisation.Once the system is running you encounter the UI for the first time. Everything is fairly straightforward with games front and centre. Elements will be familiar to former PlayStation owners but equally other will be less so, and maybe a little confusing at first. Once you’re used to it, it’s actually better than the PS4’s but there are shortcomings. One glaring omissions is the lack of folders for your games and media. I am sure this can be added in a future update but it seems odd to exclude it in the first place. Closing games can be a little convoluted. On the PS4 it was a fairly straightforward affair, but. On the PS5 it take at least one to two additional button presses.Games are what it’s all about and this were the PS5 excels. So far I have played AC: Valhalla, Demon’s Souls, WRC9, FIFA21, Astrobot, No Man’s Sky, Bugsnax and Haven. These are all PS5 builds and a mix Triple A and Indie titles. In terms of performance it’s a big step up. All of these games hit 60fps with ease. This make a big difference to action titles like AC and Demon’s Souls. Couple that with the boost in visual fidelity, and lightning fast load times( thanks to the SSD) and they are joy to play. Then we have backwards compatibility. Many older games receive a significant performance boost and some first party titles receive a graphical upgrade. The now notorious Cyberpunk 2077 serves as a great example of the PS5 power. The game was poorly optimised at release for the PS4 family of consoles, to the point were it unplayable on vanilla hardware. While running the PS4 build, the PS5 can maintain a steady 60fps. Pop in is non-existent thanks to the super fast SSD and RAM, the texture pop in isn’t detectable.Everything isn’t rosy when it comes to games though. Storage is limited. Of the 825gb only 667gb is usable. There is an M.2 slot for future expansion, but this currently disabled due to no suitable drives being available. You can use an external to store and play PS4 games, however you won’t benefit from the boosted loading times offered by the SSD. Because of the adoption of a standardised M.2 slot this will mean future expansion will be available and get cheaper over time.Probably the biggest surprise is the Dual Sense. Until you pick it up and play Astrobot you don’t realise how big of game changer this could be. The haptic feedback is fantastic. The fine tuning on Astrobot allows you feel every surface and input. The adaptive trigger add depth to simple actions like drawing a bow. WRC 9 makes great use of this too by adding resistance to the brake trigger to mimic the progression of the pedal. If none of this is your thing, or you feel it will hinder how competitive you can be, it can all be disabled or tones down. Aside from the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, the Dual Sense feels great in the hand. The DS4 was a major step up from the DS3, and the Dual Sense feels almost as big a leap. It’s easily my controller of choice now. My only criticism would be that on both my Dual Senses the R1 and L1 buttons are audible. It isn’t the sound of a micro switch, but more the sound of plastic on plastic.So overall the PS5 is a great starting point for a promising future.**Update**So nearly two years into ownership and things have arguably got better. Many new and useful features have been added as well as some quality of life improvements. It would have been nice to see VRR and 1440p support come sooner but it’s better late than never. I’ve added an internal m.2 NVME and have been using an external HDD for PS4 games. As of yet I’ve not issues with either. Overall the experience for myself remains excellent.

    I’m really happy with my PS5. I used the invite request which took around a month and a half to come through; I was able to order at that point without any issue. The delivery was made the day after and I’ve never been more excited. Easy to set up, runs seamlessly, quick loading and games are great. Very happy.

    ♦ Introduction ♦Sony have done a fantastic job with their new generation of console, the PlayStation 5.I won’t bore with the specifications, however one thing is for sure, this thing is a “beast”, especially when considering the price of a PC with equivalent specifications would cost so much more.It is important to note that there are two versions of the PS5; both have the exact same internal specifications including memory space (825GB SSD, with around 667GB of that being useable), so it’s down to your preference on how you buy games and whether you see any use in having a disc drive:• PS5 – Digital Version: This is the cheapest model in the short-term. As this is lacking a disc drive you cannot watch Blu-Ray’s or put in game discs with this version. To purchase games, you will need to connect the console online by Wi-Fi or Ethernet and get them from the PlayStation store; buying games through this method is typically more expensive but it’s the convenience and freeing up space in your home.• PS5 – Disc Version: Gives you the flexibility of buying physical copies of games or going digital and in addition you can watch DVD/Blu-Ray/UHD-Blu-Ray’s. The disc versions of games will still take up the same amount of storage space as they still need to install, though the bonus about having discs is that you can trade them in or sell them once you are done, unlike the digital copies.♦ Box Contents & Optional Extras ♦Whichever version you go for, you will get the following in the box:• PS5 console.• Console stand (horizontal & vertical use).• DualSense wireless controller (x1).• USB-C charging cable for controller.• HDMI cable.• AC power cable.• Instructions (Do read them!).There are many optional extras you can buy, though not necessary:• DualSense controller (for additional players).• DualSense charging station (useful for charging two controllers at one time).• PS5 HD camera (recommended for those who like to stream/broadcast their games).• PS5 media remote (a remote that fine-tuned for your media needs should you want it).• 3D Pulse wireless headset (Utilises the PS5 ‘3D Audio’)*.* Any headset with a 3.5mm cable is compatible by connecting it to the DualSense controller.• External HDD (this is recommended if you are downloading PS4 games as it frees up the PS5’s main storage for PS5 games).There is an internal M.2 SSD expansion slot, however, for the time being this slot is disabled until Sony announce or make available compatible SSD drives that can match the PS5’s on-board storage specifications.♦ Set-Up & Using ♦The set-up process is very simple and if you have an existing PS4, it will actually guide you from transferring your accounts, saved data and games directly! This can be done over the same WiFi but recommended to connect the two together via Ethernet cable.If you’re new, it will guide you through the process including making an account (if you are a parent who wants more parental controls, you can look this up on the official PlayStation website).The user interface is actually well thought-out and simple to navigate through including the console settings. The only thing I need to get past is my muscle memory of navigating around the PS4 for the last 7 years…♦ Performance ♦When it comes to graphics, the biggest jumps were certainly between the first four PlayStation consoles PS1 – PS2 – PS3 – PS4; with the PS5, there are a lot of games (not all) that will look similar in quality to the PS4 but the overall performance has been enhanced from quicker load-up times, more consistent frame-rates and stability, better transitions between cut-scenes (resulting in some being a seamless transition) to name a few, then there is ray-tracing which if a game supports this will blow your mind.Typically when a PS5 games has ray-tracing, it will give you an option to choose between a lower frame-rate such as 30fps with ray-tracing or have 60fps with ray-tracing disabled. Most my friends including myself feel that 30fps with ray-tracing in the better option as it gives the gameplay a whole new breath of life. There are plenty of videos online to show you the difference of having ray-tracing and I would highly recommend you check it out.Cooling: The console is extremely quiet despite handing games which are more demanding of specifications. I barely notice any noise being emitted from the console and it’s a nice change playing Call of Duty without my console sounding like a jet engine like my PS4 Pro did… Even after long gaming sessions, my console remains at a good temperature. NOTE: You should always place the console in an open space and at least 10cm away from a wall (if your console cannot “breathe” then it will be your fault to why it may overheat).SPEED: As mentioned the loading times are brilliant but it’s also how quickly you can jump from one game to another, sometimes in seconds. For example: I was in the middle of playing a game when I got a notification that someone beat my high-score on Astro and with a click of the ‘PS’ button, I was in the other game ready to take on my friends score… Crazy!Social: If you like communicating with your friends, the PS5 has made this even easier. The group function has been improved and allows you to screen-share to your WHOLE group (unlike the PS4 which limits it to one person) and they can pin your screen to any side/corner they want. My friend and I were both playing a game and we were also BOTH watching each others screens at the exact same time, such a great feature!♦ DualSense Controller ♦Since the original DualShock controller, Sony have made considerable improvements over the years as technology got better and better.I can see why they have diverted from naming this controller DualShock 5 but instead calling it ‘DualSense’, the reasoning for this is certainly key changes such as the old rumble motor and has now opted for dual actuators which can replicate specific frequencies to give a more immersive experience through haptic feedback.Another key feature are the adaptive triggers which allows the game developer to add resistance to the triggers. A perfect example which has been used many times to explain this is when you draw a bow, initially it’s very easy to pull back until it gets to a point where more and more resistance is applied making it tougher to go any further; developers can simulate these in the triggers.The DualSense like the DualShock 4 also has an in-built microphone, speaker, touchpad, three-axis gyroscope and a three-axis accelerometer. With all the different sensory elements the new controller has in-built, it makes sense to call it “DualSense”.♦ Astro’s Playroom ♦At the time of review, ‘Astro’s Playroom’ is pre-installed on every console. Do not take a blind-eye to this game as you will be surprised at how good it is, despite your age!This game utilises all features the DualSense controller has to offer and delivers an absolutely incredible experience based on that alone. The game has four main islands which concentrate the theme of each generation of the PlayStation and is packed full of references. It’s also not overly hard to earn a Platinum trophy either.♦ Final Thoughts ♦Like any console on launch there are limited options for next-generation games, but the ones that are available are typically getter very good reviews, including ‘Bug Snax’ which initially raised a lot of eye-brows at first. The compatibility with PS4 games is great and if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber you have instant access to a wide-variety of top selling PS4 games, ideal for those who are moving from Xbox One to PS5.All in all with the PS5 you are getting a console that can handle upcoming games with ease, a more user-friendly experience and a new controller which is going to upgrade your gaming to a whole new level.✔ Pros:✓ Wonderful console design.✓ User-friendly interface.✓ Great overall performance.✓ Better cooling system.✓ Robust & improved controller.⸗ Neutral:- Internal storage space is a bit limited.✖ Cons:✘ Buying games through the PlayStation store is quite pricey.

Astro’s Playroom, which is pre-installed on every console, is a must-play to experience the magic of the controller (also you should play it anyway, it’s a very fun game!)I do have some negatives which prevent me from giving the console a full five-stars: first of all, the price of games is getting ridiculous. Sony are charging £70 for almost all of their first-party exclusives and lots of other companies are following suit. This is a big increase over the previous generation and when you look at what Xbox is doing with Gamepass it becomes a bitter pill to swallow.The next annoying thing is installing the PS5 version of games. It can often be difficult to know whether you are downloading a PS4 or PS5 version of a game from your library because it doesn’t make it clear which is which. It should just automatically download the PS5 version if you are on a PS5! I don’t know how Sony hasn’t managed to crack this when Xbox does it perfectly with their “Smart Delivery”.Last of all, there is a lack of games. Don’t get me wrong – Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy, Astro’s Playroom, Returnal and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart are all good games to varying degrees, but having played all of them (yes, I am getting desperate), I wouldn’t go out of my way to get a PS5 just to play any one of them. None of them are killer apps and I think we will be waiting until the next God of War until there is something truly essential on the console. So, if you can’t get your hands on a PS5, don’t fret. All you are really missing out on is the convenience of fast loading times, nicer graphics and a fancy controller. But in terms of must-play video games, the PS5 is still in its infancy.

    After years of waiting and going into shops and looking online, with one simple click on Amazon invite system, less than week later I got my invite and my PS5 arrived earlier than promised. I got a great machine that preform perfectly at the price I was willing to pay… couldn’t be happier with the results 🙂

    Wow! Had to wait a long time to buy it at the official, controlled price but all worth it.Have been using the PS4 + PSVR Kit for a while and wanted to upgrade to the new PS5. The results are really good – higher definition graphics, faster rendering, no lags and the upgraded controller is very nice. Didn’t expect anything less from Sony.Come with one controller so bought an additional one for those odd games like Football.The new PS5 console is quiet and there aren’t any heating issues like some people have experienced.The PS4 version PSVR works with most VR titles. Only had issue with a couple of games. But you will need to buy an adapter for the PSVR camera – make sure you get the original Sony one.Overall, a good upgrade but there are those little things which I personally found to be a little annoying. For example, I still can’t figure out how to make folders and categorise games. On the PS4 I was able to have folders for games Genere (probably my lack of knowledge).Happy Gaming!

    It’s a PS5… what’s else can you say?For one thing; I appreciate Amazon for not bundling it up with 100 other things like some other retailers. Low key scalping, they would add 2/3 games and accessories at full retail because people are desperate to get a PS5. I got this stand alone, a couple of games a controller and a headset for £50-60 less than some of the ‘bundles’ out there.

    Pros.. amazing graphic, games load super fast, controller has special effects, mich more than a simple vibration. I can convert ps4 games to ps5 version (at least it worked with FIFA)Cons.. it’s HUGE. It doesn’t fit anyware and it’s also pretty noisy because of the cooling system. And the price of console and games it’s ridiculously high. Overall i don’t regret buying it, but i wish it was more compact.

    Amazon sellling ‘by invitation’ – well I signed up in September thinking I may be lucky and get one for Christmas but it was ONLY TWO WEEKS for Amazon to send the invite email and 3 days later after buying it my PS5 arrived. So it wasn’t very long to wait :)It’s great of course but it loses a star because it’s a HUGE ugly monster, the PS4 is a midget by comparison. So be mindful of the dimensions as it may not physically fit where you want it to.

    This PlayStation 5 console has been really good in terms of speed, settings and having multiple benefits for the player however the most important thing is that’s as of today it is lacking PS5 games as you can play ps4 games benefiting from loading times. Leading to the point that right now is buying a PS5 to mostly play PS4 games.

    TL;DR: Great hardware let down by Sony policies that mean a really poor line-up of games that actually take advantage of the new PS5 features.**May 2022 Update: I have both HFW and GT7 and they are great! Both look amazing and the gameplay is also brilliant (ignoring Polyphony Digital doing stupid stuff with the GT7 economy, that is). I’m still playing more PS4 titles than PS5 titles on it though…**In full:To start with, let me say that the hardware itself is great. It runs really well and almost silently most of the time, looks great and functions very well.What lets it down is the lack of AAA titles. If you like your FIFA, more power to you, but lootbox farming isn’t my thing. I can’t wait for Gran Turismo 7 but honestly, that and the new Horizon Zero Dawn, are the only games I want and the only two PS5 games I am intending to buy (at time of writing). Neither of them are out until 2022.Sony originally said, as they have done with all other consoles, that they ‘believe in generations’, by which they mean that the latest gen console is their focus. They fairly quickly went against that and decided that most games have to have a PS4 and a PS5 version. That all sounds great but it means that games are made for the PS4 and then upscaled to the PS5, leaving out things like making use of the haptic feedback of the controllers or developing games that are supposed to run at 4k, 120fps that were all touted as PS5 selling points. The £40ish price point for new console games has always been a thing for as long as I can remember but with PS4 still being as much of a focus as PS5, PS4 games are continuing to be at that price point while PS5 games are around £70.On top of that, games like Cyberpunk, the new PES, Battlefield 2042 and others have all been rushed to release and in most cases are flat out broken. These are not worth £45 in their current state, let alone £80+ for PS5 special editions. Notable exceptions to this are Warframe (free to play) and I have been extremely impressed with Ghost of Tsushima which, despite being originally a PS4 release, seems to have done a fantastic job of using the graphical and controller feedback upgrades of the PS5.Even as lifelong PlayStation fan, I can honestly say that I regret buying a PS5 when I did (April 2021) because I am basically using it as a PS4. I really hope that things will change in 2022 and we start to see some great games come to the console but I am not going to hold my breath.If you can’t get one of these for love nor money, don’t worry – until the games line-up gets better, you really aren’t missing out on much over a PS4.
