The PlayStation 5 is awesome: the DualSense controller is next-level, the launch titles are compelling, and it's got a built in UHD Blu-ray player ....but that doesn't mean it's perfect.

I appreciate the detailed feedback of the employee delegated to do this review Linus. 🙏 Thanks. It convinced me to delay a purchase due to ergonomic reasons of the controller.

In a perfect world sony will completely update the ps5 and unlock its full features plus better compatibility for safe games around the end of this year and just scrap ps now as it is at this moment and just make it a giant library that enables downloads and runs on a emulator that's specifically build for the ps5 to emulate older consoles, cause fuck streaming. Let us just play older games on newer hardware locally. If they would... The ps5 could blow allot of its competitors right of the water. If ps now would be build like a retro arch emulator for example. But i think sony will never make such a thing a reality. Thry don't care about that legacy.

As a primary pc gamer it truly was a bummer when I bought my PS5 to find out it didn’t support 1440p. Hopefully they’ll get that sorted out in the near future.

Interesting and helpful review! I'm not sure I get the PC companion comment at the end given the Xbox games pass... I must admit xbox is reeling me back in this time with the game pass, I'm seriously tempted to not get a ps5 and just invest in an rtx 3080... Mind you I might take whichever becomes available first at this point!

I'll wait until Sony actually supports their bloody hardware properly on this new generation. I'm talking specifically about PSVR. So with the PS5 we have superior hardware to run our PSVR's on. But without the SuperSampling options that could take advantage of the extra Processing and Graphics power and breath some new life into the hardware, its a pointless upgrade. Yeah we get improved loading and the odd optimization, big deal. Steam VR can manage global SuperSampling.. and Oculus tray tool a 3rd party app for Rift/Quest and do the same. Sony's PSVR support for PS5 is shite So Sony how about smashing your woeful hardware support record and release an actual move 2 with a thumbstick. Offer SuperSampling options that can globally be applied to every game and some performance modes that will utilize that power. Till then I'll stick to the PRO and my PC.

9:00 I watched a test video showing that The Last of Us Part II loaded about three times faster on the PS5 than on the PS4. In half a minute rather than a minute and a half. Maybe it depends on the level. For me that’s a big improvement and was actually the main reason I decided not to buy the TLOU2 Limited edition PS4 Pro.

Backwards Compatibility is not that much of an advantage tho, one generation BC is more than enough.

Fractured Raptor Vor 19 Tage
Considering how many good emulators exist Sony could have paid the creators to put the emulator on internal storage that's no bigger than a thumb stick, or bake it into the console naturally. Then charge two to five bucks per desired game from the store and download them so they run off of the emulation software so it doesn't fuck with the main software. They could have charged eight hundred for such an edition and it would sell like god damn hotcakes. They're really shooting themselves in the foot by neglecting to do backwards compatibility. Either people get it for free through emulation or they buy games on second hand markets. It'd be easy money. The games are already complete. Zero work involved outside of whatever solution they did to make that generation run on the console.

The fact they showcased Rogue Galaxy was nice to me, even if Linus might not know what it is, but I'm guessing someone on his team does, or was a fan of the game. SUPER UNDERRATED JRPG, and I bought it on my PS4. I've probably beaten it at least 2-3 times, and I always enjoy going back and replaying it.

Where did Linus learn to do math ? He said you can buy a Xbox Series X for the price of 4 digital PS5 games. I thought the games were going to be $60 or $70 depending on the studio and their is no price difference between games on any of the new consoles. Linus shilled for Xbox. That’s what I got from this video. Only watched 7 minutes and 20 seconds of it

You know why psnow is actually better than gamespass? Bloodborne. There isn’t a single game on gamespass that can compete with bloodborne. I don’t like Sony very much, but I’ve played so many more games in depth on psnow or gamespass on pc which are on psnow anyway (monster hunter etc) I don’t even turn on the Xbox. Which sucks, but releasing demons souls( and not buying Bethesda ffs) as a ps5 launch title kinda cemented the reason of why I bought one in the first place, and why I am going to wait on the Xbox. They actually release awesome games that you can’t get on pc. When Microsoft releases a good game, it’s on pc as a better version. I just don’t see how an Xbox fits in. You get shit like bloodborne and demons souls on ps5. You get sheer quantity and higher quality on pc. Nintendo has a portable indie gaming machine plus Zelda and monster hunter. Xbox series s looks awesome by the way and I don’t hate them by any means, I just don’t see the point of buying one over the the other 3 options. PSA for idiots like the guy below: You can download all ps4 games. Making it objectively fucking better than games pass. Also I own a subscription to both, gears 5 and sunset overdrive are the only two amazing games on it that you can’t get anywhere else( besides pc??) and they aren’t even that good... like I said pc is the best, and if you own a pc, it makes more sense to invest in a PlayStation so you can play shit like bloodborne. Or a Nintendo. What doesn’t make sense is buying into Xbox for any thing other than emulation. Unless you like it and then I could care less.
