    As an xbox player, i say the ps5 looks amazing. Great console design and ABSOLUTELY LOVE the new controllers. My only criticism is that of most people, its just a WEEE bit big.

    • Kingdom Of Arabia
      Kingdom Of Arabia

      @SinrotoGT usually consoles are placed on a table or a desk next to a tv so usually theres plenty of space. but i can see it being an inconvenience to people who like their setup with lots of free space.

    • SinrotoGT

      @Kingdom Of Arabia first of all, wow. idek how you found this comment lol. second of all, i still feel its big enough to be a hindrance. it wont fit in certain areas as easy as a series x/s or even a ps4/xb1.

    Personally i’m really excited to see how this affects pricing of m.2 drives for my pc now that demand has grown exponentially

    • UltimateDillon

      To be fair, the speed of SSD you need for it is barely even available yet, and isn't really necessary yet on PC, so you'll be fine, just go for the step down

    • NoahFe

      @ytdlgandalf no I’m pretty sure he’s using that right he’s basically saying they amount of demand has gone up by so much it’s an exponent

    I think the difference between resistive triggers and haptic feedback is that haptic feedback just uses a rumble function very precisely to create the illusion of some kind of resistance or texture to the input, while resistive actually uses motors to put pressure on the trigger against your input.

    I'm with David. All-Digital since about three months after I got my PS4. I only had 10 physical games, and probably 30-40 digital titles. The physical games were eventually replaced during deep sales, and I've never looked back. Embrace the future, kids.

  • HeartFire

    For the ltt video I think a neat comparison could be comparing load times of a ps4 that's been upgraded with an ssd and the new "revolutionary" storage of the ps5 I've so far only seen it compared to the series x and just a regular ps4 with a hdd

  • Digital Warrior

    I believe haptic are more related to vibration. Although, they might have added vibration to the triggers to make it more immersive.

    Linus, sony had standart, user upgradable hdd in form of standard 2.5" drive in both ps3 and ps4. And the story was not that different - one plastic cover and one screw on both of them.

  • Jabradle

    The PS4 pro had user upgradable storage too, granted it was a 2.5 inch drive but upgrading to an ssd still helped.

    Just a thought but maybe it feels more weighted because it has all of its charging components in it? Typically any controller will feel more weighted when it has a rechargeable pack inside of it instead of just batteries.

    Since the side panels are easily removed I wonder if there will be 3rd party custom side panels available. Its basically a cheap blow moulded plastic part. Personally I think mat black side panels that follow the curve of the main chassis would look way better

      @Unbelievable I would assume they are cheaper to make, and then there's the age old excuse of "everyone already has one". Also automotive industry uses philips/pizodrive because it has natural cam out, preventing over torqueing

    • Unbelievable

      @Torpedo Hippo whatever I just got a petalobe screwdriver no big deal, but ya torx seems like it should be used everywhere. I didn't know it was around so long. Why tf is north america still using philips and robertson? Ghetto.

      @Garfish That's right. I also saw one prominent reviewer spray painted his ps5 red and put Spiderman sticker in the middle and it looked great.

  • KillahMate

    Yes, technically both the general vibration feedback in the controller and the resistive triggers are haptic - 'haptic' is a term that covers any kind of touch-based feedback. But calling them 'haptic' and 'resistive' respectively makes it clearer what each thing does.

  • Talisac80

Actually even if your house has some industrial or sci-fi design, it is still too huge to look good.

    I'm impressed by how the Xbox managed to pack all its hardware in that small package. It's definitely better than most gaming CPUs at it's price point but it's just tiny compared to them. Honestly, if PS5 didn't have better games I would 100% be going Microsoft this gen. I'm just so disappointed at Sony's solution to improve thermals their jet engine console.

    to be frank, i have never worried too much about how my systems look.


    The problem with not putting the stand on the bottom when you have the PS5 standing up vertically is that it is at much greater risk of tipping over. The stand isn't as much for ventilation as it is for balance.

  • TrashCaster

    We can look forward to 3rd party companies and the 3D printing community for side-panel mods that make the PS5 look really sweet though. I hope at least Sony decides to release an all black "low profile" edition that comes with an all black controller.

      I personally think exactly otherwise. For me the PS5 looks like an outdated idea of what "modern" should look like, while the Xbox for me has an actually modern sleek and minimalist design. But it's all based on personal taste, so no offense here! Everyone can make up their own mind about it.

    "It always comes down to games" this sums up the whole consoles experience, and I think Play station did very good with the games for the last generation , and of course with Ps1 , 2 and even 3 had very good exclusives, most of the 3rd party games are already on both consoles in addition to Pc, but maybe Xbox does something with their exclusives this generation ?!!!

    Most likely there will not be any real big difference between the two. DF testing already shows they both perform very simialr and have their own strengths. I think the higher clock on XBX makes up for some things like audio load and such that PS5 does not need as much of a load to handle having a separate chip for that.

      That's not too bad, most third world countries have salaries of just a quarter (if that) of developed countries, which means in most european countries you'd need to work just a month to get a new console while still satisfying your basic needs, meanwhile, in a developing country you'd need over 4 months of work to achieve the same thing.
