Booting up the PlayStation 5 for the first time, I was greeted with the mandatory set-up: enter your region and profile, and migrate all your PS4 data over to the new console. I foolishly connected the consoles via the same Wi-Fi network, resulting in a very long and arduous process. Thankfully, a few hours later I was able to dive headfirst into all that the PS5 offered - and in terms of next-gen consoles, there's a lot to unpack about just how phenomenal a machine it actually is. Sony has ushered in the new generation of consoles with a bang, and the first impressions couldn't have been more positive. However, does it present enough compelling reasons to pick one up right now?
Note: This review is based on the disc version of the PlayStation 5.
...the PS5's visual presentation is certainly the most outlandish that Sony has ever created - and to its benefit, it screams "next generation."
You're actually looking at around 667GB of free space, which can be filled up relatively quickly if you're just installing major games...
It's a vast step-up from the DualShock 4 (or any DualShock before it), marking it as - in my opinion - the best controller that PlayStation has ever made.
They've made the PS5 the perfect blockbuster console for blockbuster AAA games...
