"I love my PS5 even though I'm only playing on my steamdeck currently but. FF16 just came out so I'm hopping on tonight. It's a solid system. I just don't think anything will compete with the PS2. 4 stars "
"Still gotta get me one but tried at a friend's house, the graphics are amazeballs and the usage of the gyro in the controllers feels weird but in a good way. Need to get this especially for God of War Ragnarok"
"I always wonder how a new console is going to beat the graphics from its previous version and this one is a huge step above the PS4. I had one of the OG PS4 consoles and it needed an upgrade so I lucked out on getting on through some online digging right after it came out. It did have its share of early release glitches but those have been taken care of. Graphics are solid and on point with a mid-range PC plus the SSD allows for quick game loading. "
"So far the PS5 has been good to me. I only have a few games for it but expanding PS Plus will certainly hold me over for some time. The console is massive, like the original Xbox and I am actually liking the controller more than I thought I would. Good system with lots of potential.
"Ps5 is a nice console. However, there are currently only a hand few of exclusive games on this console. If you were to get a next gen console, I would highly recommend going team Xbox. This last E3 presentation did not hold too much hope for exclusives coming out soon, but with the recently re-vamped Playstation Now this console will be fighting side by side with Xbox this generation."
"I like it. I understand it has some great story driven games. As a father of 4, I just can’t sink 50+ hours into these games anymore. I’m always playing multiplayer games with friends it seems. It Essentially the same specs as the Xbox X, so it’s literally just your personal preference between consoles. I go with Xbox for my reasons, but I know why others prefer PS.
They REALLY dropped the ball with not being able to support 1440p. You’re stuck with 1080 or 4K. For casual gaming this is ok, but if you’re one of those people who likes to sweat in PvP games, it’s not the best choice"
