Sony Playstation has finally fulfilled fans’ excitement over its latest console with not just one but two editions ‒ the PS5 standard edition with a 4K Blu-ray disc drive, and a PS5 digital edition that is slimmer and disc-free.
The sleek, modernistic console sports a curvy look of black and white plastics with blue highlight lighting, which looks like it came out of the Star Wars galaxy ‒ think stormtroopers.
Both editions share a similarity in terms of using a USB-C port for the controllers, an HD camera accessory, as well as the new Pulse 3D wireless headset (for delivering 3D audio) and media remote.
Special Features on the PS5
Sony has made a further refinement in the PS5 console’s UI. This time around, its new user experience has been designed specifically for 4K TVs, which makes tiles representing games smaller and neater-looking than on PS4. A new handy feature in the PS5 UI named ‘Cards’ shows large tiles when accessing the Control Center while in-game and allows you to interact with each game in various ways. In ‘Cards’, you can gain access to anything from game news to screenshots. This feature also lets you hop into a game with friends instantly.
The ‘Activities’ feature enables you to skip to different levels in a game instantly, as well as getting additional information about the sections in question, such as your progress percentage and a personalised playtime estimate that tells you how long you will take to finish the level. This is motivating for gamers who are trying to accomplish as many levels as they can.
The ‘Explore’ section gathers all your games in one place and news about games you’re following and community-related media. However, it is only available for the US players for now as Sony is still in the midst of testing the feature.
Say Goodbye to Discs with the PS5 Digital Edition
What’s different about the PS5 digital edition is that it encourages players to leverage digital download and streaming services instead of buying physical games in disc form. While it may be challenging to swap games with friends or trade them in with the digital edition, its cheaper price may justify the high demand for it.
PS5 DualSense Controller
Instead of the DualShock 5, Sony designs a new wireless gamepad known as the DualSense Controller that is presented in a black-and-white scheme like the console. Even the four face buttons including Triangle, Circle, Square, and Cross are part of the scheme and are no longer easily distinguished by different colours. However, it’s not an issue for long-time gamers who are already familiar with the buttons.
Looking at a more technical aspect, the controller’s L2 and R2 shoulder buttons come with haptic feedback, making them more adaptive so that players can feel the tension of their actions easily. It will allow game developers to program the resistance of the adaptive trigger to prompt actions in a more accurate manner. With the DualSense, gamers can now do away with their headset as they can speak directly to the built-in microphone of the controller. While DualShock 4 is still compatible with the PS5, it only works with supported PS4 games.
