Video games and consoles have always ceased to evolve from year to year to the delight of the youngest but also of the oldest. Thus, through the technological evolution of the latter, players are constantly immersed in new experiences that are crazier than ever.
With the release of Sony’s new game console, the PlayStation 5 offers immersion in a world of games in 4K/60 FPS, without forgetting one of the most futuristic designs. We will therefore see everything you need to know about this new nugget from Sony throughout this article.
What are the main features of the new PS5?
It was November 2020 that the Sony brand announced the launch of its new PlayStation 5 on the market. For more than 25 years now, the brand has been surprising us in terms of game consoles, particularly with regard to its PlayStation range.
Kept secret for a long time, the final design of the console was finally unveiled after many mysteries and questions. Thus, fans are not disappointed in terms of design because indeed the PS5 combines both a futuristic side with its geometrically asymmetrical curves but also a sleek side with a matte white and black shell, accompanied by a small game of blue light.
It is also important to notify that the PS5 will not be released in a single model but in fact two. Indeed, Sony has planned to commercialize two models namely:
- the PlayStation 5;
- the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.
Thus, the main differences between the two consoles lie in particular in the fact that the standard PS5 model is equipped with a Blu-Ray player, thus making it possible to play all types of games (both games in the form of CDs and games on download) and this unlike the PS5 Digital Edition without this option. As a result, the Digital Edition only works with downloadable games, or all types of content in multimedia format available on the internet.
The price of the latter is still estimated at around €399 for the standard model, as well as €499 for the Digital Edition. Thus, the prices will not exceed the 500 € estimated by certain specialists.
What are the accessories to have for the PS5?
In addition to having a futuristic design and high-quality graphics performance thanks in particular to “Ray Tracing” technology equivalent to 8K projection, the PlayStation 5 also comes with a DualSense controller, included in the basic pack. The DualSense controller differs considerably at first glance from the DualShock controller, in particular due to its dual color design (black and white) without forgetting an undeniable improvement in ergonomic quality.
It is also possible to obtain a series of other accessories specific to the PlayStation 5 range with the ultimate aim of taking full advantage of the capacity as well as the gaming experience on the latter. Thus, among these accessories there are essentially:
- a PS5 Pulse 3D wireless headset: the latter was designed to maximize 3D sound tones and thus allow the player to better immerse himself in the video game;
- a DualSense charging station: if you want to have several controllers, this charging station will be ideal and will allow you to switch between the controllers so that you never run out of battery;
- a multimedia remote control: in addition to being a game console, the PS5 is also a good multimedia tool offering the possibility of viewing Netflix, YouTube, and Disney+ all for a subscription at €29.99;
- an HD camera: the latter offers HD quality, allowing it to be used directly during a game, while hiding the background when you want more privacy and discretion.
What are the next video games planned exclusively for the PS5?
Indeed, the PlayStation 5 will exclusively offer the release of several video games eagerly awaited by the gamer community, namely:
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales;
- The Pathless;
- All-Star Destruction;
