Sony’s PlayStation 5 is here to change the way we perceive and play games. This next-gen console along with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X has been the talk of the town since its launch last year. Speaking of which, we have also covered some blogs on all the specs and other aspects of the Xbox Series X, click here to check them out. With this blog we dive into why you should buy the all-new Sony PlayStation 5 console and why should you buy the same from us.
Sony has launched two different variants of the PS5 console- PS5 with a 4K Blu-ray drive and the Digital Edition PS5. They vary in price and a bit in appearance. The latter is a bit slimmer than its brother console. However, the basic differences between the two are the disc drive that is available with the 4K Blu-ray drive version and not with the Digital one. And another is the price point. The former being a bit expensive as compared to the latter.
Successfully powered by a custom AMD Radeon RDNA 2-based GPU and a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU, this powerful console is capable of exerting 10.28 teraflops of extreme and raw power. With the help of variable frequencies on both the console’s CPU and GPU, the graphics are pushed to run a bit clearer and faster.
The storage of this new Sony PlayStation 5 console is another plus point to get excited over. With an impressive 825GB storage, the console has changed the gaming scene forever. The console can push up to 5.5GB/s of throughput. Now this allows or rather we should say gives the games developers absolute freedom to design ample levels without worrying about the prolonged loading time. The PS5 before its launch claimed that the load times of a lot of game titles were significantly reduced, especially compared to the load times of PS4. And true to their word, the difference in load times of many game titles has been staggering.
We at HG World ourselves decided to test this claim. And there was only one way to do it. Play the games ourselves and check the power of this new age console. For example, when we played Death Stranding on both the PS4 and Sony PlayStation 5 console and compared the loading times of both, we noticed that the PS4 took approximately 1 minute 50 seconds whereas it took approximately 55 seconds on the PS5. Similarly, we played another popular title on both the consoles- Genshin Impact. The adventure game took around 2 minutes and 57 seconds to load on the PS4 whereas it took 59 seconds on the PS5. That’s literally cutting approximate two-third of PS4’s loading time. Impressive, isn’t it?
The backwards comp ability of this console is another thing everyone is excited over. Almost all PS4 games (approximately 4000 PS4 games) along with a few selective PS3 and PS2 titles can be played on this super powerful console. Sony adopted this new change to rival with ‘Xbox Pass’ another impressive service by Microsoft. Xbox Pass works on a subscription basis very much similar to Netflix subscription where you can access the Xbox games on Xbox as well as on a laptop.
However, the most next-gen and exclusive thing the game making giant introduced with this launch is the DualSense Controller. Now we have covered numerous articles where we have compared the two consoles- Xbox series X and PS5, we have covered the features of PS5 in detail, we have spoken about why you should buy a PS5 and we have also fangirled about the various PS5 games both exclusives and third-party available and in-line for release. But the point that stood out the most of all these was the innovative controller. Its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers have enhanced every gamer’s gaming experience.
The pandemic changed a lot of things with the worldwide lockdown in place. Naturally, this affected the game manufacturing industry as spare parts became scarcely available.
