- PlayStation 5
Another bungled launch by Sony
The PlayStation 5 is a great console. The load speeds are a huge improvement from its predecessor. The PS5 controllers with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers are fun to use. The built in microphone in the controllers are so convenient I now have no interest in purchasing a headset.
Cons = The PlayStation 5 launch and rollout was a complete disaster. Console shortages and Sony allowing scalpers get their hands on multiple units caused a lot of inconvenience to loyal PlayStation users who felt bitter when they were unable to secure the new ...console. It would have been nice if Sony offered launch ps5s on their PlayStation store to subscribers who have been paying PlayStation plus subscriptions for years. There was also lack of PS5 games at launch and to date I haven’t paid to purchase a ps5 game as there is nothing available that interests me. Nearly six months after launch there is still a lack of streaming apps. The major streaming apps are available but my local Australian network apps are not yet available. This is forcing me revert back to my PS4 to use them. All in all the ps5 is great but it is clear that Sony has learnt nothing from their previous launches. It’s just history repeating itself.
Purchased in November 2020 for $749.00.
