The Sony PlayStation 5 Console is a sky-high space-age console. The electronics giant has launched a Play Station after 7 long years since the previous version PS4, in 2013.
The powerful new PlayStation 5 console towers over its predecessor, both physically and in its forward-looking graphics capabilities. Its GPU, AMD-powered, processes 10.28 TF (teraflops) (1 TF= 1 trillion operations per second). The console comes with an ultra HD blu ray disc drive.
It is 16 inches tall. However, if you are worried about the available headspace for it, Sony has you covered. The dual stand allows you to place the PlayStation both vertically and horizontally.
The console is black on the inside and covered with an all-white curved frame. It, therefore, adds a very classy touch to PS5. You can now place it aesthetically in your living room too. Maybe, this could be a conversation starter at your next party.
Mind the brand new stylish and functional dual-sense controller. It does not only have a futuristic and robotic vibe on the outside, but it is also very sensitive with its adaptive triggers. In fact, the controller is a complete game-changer. It is probably one of the unique selling points of the PS5.
If you still want to test out the controller, try it on the preloaded Astro’s Playhouse game. Go for it and experience the controller come to life with your voice commands through the built-in mic. Whatsmore, the power connection on the back is a USB-C plug. To add to it, it even has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
