The New PS5 Feels Futuristic

The PS5 has revolutionized gaming

Sony Entertainment has been releasing sneak peaks of the PS5 for years but as of last month it was finally released.  Give your opinion.  Was it worth the wait? Why?  Add more specifics throughout.

Since the release of the new console, Sony has been able to sell over three million units worldwide making over one billion dollars in sales already. PS5’s were sold out within minutes in almost every location online and in-person, making it hard to get your hands on one unless you preordered it months ago. Luckily for me, my friend pre-ordered one over in August? guaranteeing him one upon their release, meaning I’ve gotten an inside look at all the features of the console.

The PS5 was released at the same time as their rival’s new console, the Xbox Series X, but the PS5 is by far the more superior console. The PS5 is an amazing piece of technology with a futuristic matte white build. It sells  for an affordable price of $399 for the digital version and $499 for the standard version. It has up to 8K render resolution with 120 frames per second, 1 Terabyte of disk space, 16GB of RAM, and many more specs that come along with it. 

This console can withstand the highest demanding video games with the best performance quality. After being a PS4 console player since the release of them in 2013 the transition from the PS4 to the PS5 was amazing, all the games I had previously played on the older console such as Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, and other high demanding games looked like a movie rather than a game on the new console. 

Another cool feature of the PS5 is the remote control that comes along with it. It has adaptive triggers, longer-lasting battery life, and texture grips under the remote. Overall this console is much better than its predecessor, and I highly recommend getting your hands on one of them after the holidays.  As of right now they are sold out almost everywhere and will not be restocked till mid-January, so be sure to purchase one before they sell out again. The PS5 has an amazing futuristic feel and a lot of new awesome features. I cannot wait to see what else Sony has in store.
