    happy days

    Going over hardware and software. Not going over the every exact technical specs as you can easily look that up. Software can change overtime, this is review of software at launch. If any hardware hiccups or failures in near future I'll update this review

    --Hardware:

    Physical:

    Looks futuristic yet tacky. In my personal opinion, looks doesn't really matter as long it can play next gen games well

    Large console. Standing up it's the tallest home video console.

    A lot of air-vents throughout making it aerodynamic, cool, quiet, and does not overheat or get hot with consecutive gameplay hours. This may change in the future if games require more performance out of the system, with similar fate like the PS4 where it was whisper quiet in beginning and became louder over the years with more graphical intensive games.

    Has LED lights giving it a PC look (?)

    Face plate easy to take out for future customization options (?).

    667of 820gb of free download space in console

    Swapping SDD is not as easy as Xbox Series X (with it's plug and play method) as you have to remove some screws. Upside is that it's standard and not a propriety SDD.

    PS5 is compatible with most PS4 games. If you have an external SDD from PS4 it's just plug and transfer to PS5 internal storage

    Comes with stand. Console is not entirely flat, so stand is required for horizontal position. You have console in vertical position without stand, but does not have grip (rubber feet) so may slide if bumped into or during an earthquake

    Front of console: USB-C, USB-A, power, and eject button

    Back of console: Two USB-A (Super Speed), LAN port, HDMI, and power port

    Wished it had more USB-C ports to be future proof, but guess they kept USB-A for some current accessories to be backwards compatible. Disappointed the PS5 official 3D pulse headset and camera uses USB-A. Also no optical audio port means i can't use some of my surround sound headsets.

    Load times for PS5 games are instantaneous. Ps4 games will load much faster, even without optimized patch.

    Ps5 have ray tracing giving games realistic lighting effects

    -Controller:

    Console comes with one controller

    Physically larger than past DuelShock controllers. Great for those with adult sized hands

    Great tech demo included with 'Astro's Playroom'.

    Haptic feedback. Similar to Nintendo Switch HD rumble, but more apparent. Not sure if developers will implement in future their games. Even with Nintendo first party; only '1-2 Switch' and 'Mario Party' from what I recall used HD rumble at great extent and it dropped off after that.

    Adaptive triggers. Will feel resistance/push back on triggers if developers implement it in game.

    Hope both Haptic feedback and Adaptive triggers say the entire lifespan and transfer to PS6 instead of dropping off like the six axis on PS3 and light bar in PS4

    Has built in mic. Sound quality is similar to current smart phone on speaker. Has mute button

    Similar to PS4, it has speaker and touch pad. Touch pad is more sensitive this time around

    About double battery life of Ps4 controller. Able to get in 10 consecutive hours

    Wished it came with back paddle buttons. Hopefully they release a DualSense Back Button Attachment like they did the DualShock 4

    You can play PS4 games with DualShock 4 or DualSense . PS5 games only can be played with DualSense

    --Software

    UI, OS is the similar to PS4 with scrolling apps/games (left, right, up, down)

    There's an activity row where you can track your progress on games

    Other rows are News and PSN store

    There are notifications popups, but you can turn on 'Do Not Disturb' mode

    Similar to phone's swipe down tool bar for basic profile (trophy list, avatar, user info,etc), accessibility options, sound, Game Base, internet wifi select, controllers (see connected controllers), etc on home screen for easy access.

    'Game Base' section is where you make party with friends and chat with them, view friend requests.

    Share button this time around will pull up menu to take snap shot, record video, or save video previously played game session for up to 60mins

    There's an 'Your Accolades' feature where you give props to other players. Reminds me of how to give endorsements (Sportsmanship, Good Teammate, Shot Caller) in Overwatch to encourage positivity in online community. For PS5 has Helpful, Welcoming, and Good Sport

    There are accessibility options/preferences you can setup that transfers to your games

    There's a 'Switcher' option where you can change games on the fly, but unlike the Xbox Series X's 'quick resume' does not leave where you left off, and will boot you back to the home screen of that game

    Picture-in-picture mode if you want friends to help show you how to get through levels

    PS4 games load faster on PS5 if downloaded to SSD. Graphical upgrade depends on publisher if they implement a 'PS5 upgrade" patch

    -For PS5 trophies.

    Trophies that have collectables there is a progress bar showing how much left to collect.

    There are also tutorial videos for some games that implement it.

    Some trophies once selected will drop you into the level/section where you can obtain the trophy. Again depends on game developer if they implement it.

    PS4 trophies on PS5 act the same

    Base price for games are $70 ($10 more than last gen); Excluding Special/Collector's editions, DLC, micro-transactions, loot crates, and surprise mechanics

    Overall, aside from some odd design choices very capable next gen system. There are some features especially on the controller that developers have to utilize and may not be present in all games. If anything like the PS3 and PS4, going to have thousands of gameplay hours on this system

    The next gen console we've all been awaiting...

    It was quite difficult to pre-order the PS5, but I truly lucked out because even with all the restocks certain retailers have had... it is still unbelievably hard to place the order. I hope anyone that still wants one gets one soon because it really is unfair that the gamers aren't able to land one whilst scalpers have thousands.

    The PS5 has run beautifully and so intelligently from what I've experienced. The set up was of course easy and fast. The new UI is smooth and I definitely like it more than the old one on the PS4.

    The Dualsense Controller is AMAZING. It is probably the next best thing (only second to the console itself) with the way it works. It's not as slippery like the Dualshock and feels great in hand. Even after hours of gaming, I did not feel any fatigue in my hands. The battery life is probably similar to its predecessor.

    Overall, the console runs very smoothly and I have not experienced any sort of loudness with it. I do recommend when playing games, to choose performance over the resolution. You will absolutely get a higher FPS and I think it just runs a lot better that way.

    Would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to experience next gen even though we've just merely begun to play those games.

    A real review.

    An actual buyer here!!! The console has been great. No issues so far (Crosses fingers). No glitches (like many who don’t work in the tech field claim). I’ve tried plenty of PS4 games and they all work normal. I have Spiderman, 2K, COD and Valhalla and they are all good games. The adaptive triggers on the controller definitely stand out as a highlight. I turn them off for multiplayer in COD because they can be a distraction.

    I’m sure the Xbox has some benefits, but I’m sticking with Sony. Hope everyone is able to get the console they want.

    the PS5 is beautiful

    listen, i know how difficult it is to get the PS5. but you gotta keep trying. the ability to have 2-3 second load times is an ability i never knew i wanted. the games are so much fun, i am deeply addicted to my PS5. i am currently attempting to get the platinum trophy on Demon Souls Remastered. Keep trying ladies and gentlemen, i hope you are able to get a PS5 at some point! i also bought black PS5 plates off dbrand and they make the PS5 look even better!

    The PS5 feels like an actual step forward into the next generation of gaming from the speed to access games and within games to the new UI to the new controller. The PS5 feels like something new. Which I assume is what your looking for when you buy a new generation of console. one feature of note in the new UI is the cards that give you a custom estimation of how long you would need to play a particular mission or section in a PS5 game or how much progress you’ve made towards a new trophy and simple as this is it really helps so you can better plan your “gaming session”. If you’re lucky enough to finally get your hands on one of these you won’t be disappointed. Pro tip if you have games on your PS4 I would recommend you move them to an external HD so you can easily access them on your PS5.

    Amazing console, love it!

    I have owned many game consoles over the years, including all of the PlayStations, lots of Nintendo, some of the Xboxs and a lot of old generation systems as well. I have had this system since launch day and it has been a blast so far, even the free game Astro's Playroom that is installed on the system was really fun to play. The system is virtually silent when running (finally!) has a pretty decent line up games for having just come out. The controller is beyond amazing, the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers definitely make the games feel more alive than in past generations. I hope all consoles going forward have these features! Can't wait for more PS5 only games to come out for it!

    Everyone in the world wants this!!

    What can I say…this is the MOST in-demand next-gen gaming console. It’s so hard to get your hands on it that people are paying a premium above MSRP to resellers. The picture quality is amazing on a 4K TV (recommend high refresh rate 120 MHz 4K TV if you can afford it). It functions as a media center and allows you to watch amazon prime videos for example in addition to gaming. It’s the console that once you play on it, you won’t want to go back to the earlier gen PS consoles. Get it while you can!! (oftentimes you only seconds to buy before going out of stock)

    It's Somewhat Next-Gen

    Honestly, what do you expect? It's next-gen. The console itself to begin with looks like some type of alien object that's casually placed in your living room. The controller is fantastic, much bigger so it can grip in my hands properly now. I always liked the PS4 controller but now holding this I can see how much less of a controller it is compared to the PS5's. Lastly, you honestly won't get the full next-gen experience​ until HDMI 2.1 4k monitors come out that runs over 120hz. So if money is a little tight I​ would wait till it dies down. Not worth paying over retail for this console. So if you were thinking of buying it from those scalpers don't.

    Must have system

    Order came in earlier than expected! The entire process was so smooth. The guys at the front desk were kind and quick with helping me with my order, I was out of the store in no time. As for the Ps5, this thing is rockin. I haven't put it down since I got it. The controller is on another level and don't get me started with the graphics. I recommend purchasing a monitor compatible to get full 120 FPS on games that are capable because the graphics are next level. I went with the digital version, and that being said it comes with more than enough storage for all your games. I highly recommend playstation, as this console covers all the bases for my gaming needs.

    PS5 Secured

    Going back to Playstation after 'main-ing' the Xbox one/ one one x for years is a def welcoming experience. PS plus games has amazing selection to choose from and you can keep them all in your library. The community is fantastic and I keep adding friends to the list. I have so much to catch up on when it comes to PS4 titles. As far as ps5 titles they're a little scarce but what's out def takes advantage of what Sony is pushing for in the next gen. Astro's PLAYROOM, COD Black Ops: Cold War and Descruction Allstars all utilize the 'Adaptive Triggers' on the controller and its such a game changer. Being able to feel the game react to your gamplay is phenomenal. Follow @mattswider on Twitter for live PS5/XBOX Series X restock times on different websites. I was lucky enough to get my PS5 through his link on Best Buy . com website. Remember just be signed in w/ card info saved and never give up!

    Virtual now rocks !

    People usually buy the other version, but let me tell you that this totally worth. Anyway, you always will need to buy an external drive (I prefer SSD) for your digital games. What about disk games? You can still play them in your old ps4, is not a big difference (load speed is the only difference that I notice) if is a normal game that doesn’t support a ps5 upgrade. Otherwise, I recommend virtual games because they can’t break and you always will have them in your library, so if you travel a lot like me, and you want to bring your ps5 with you, you don’t need to care for make some space in your baggage for a bundle of discs.

    Be patient, it will turn yellow. Then it’s yours.

    Best Buy is the way to go to avoid scalpers. Just be patient and wait for it to be added to the cart. The button will turn yellow. I promise. Once it’s in the cart it’s yours. I love my new system, the data saved on my Seagate drive, with all my PS4 data crossed over in seconds, only the new PS5 games bought with cross gen had to download. PlayStation 5 is awesome, can’t wait for grand Tourismo to drop.

    The pics I used are from my Xbox X order, process was the same.

    Good luck y’all

    PS4 1TB Console

    I had bought this console to play games until the PS5 comes out I sold my PS4 Pro because it would always disconnect off the WI-FI but this console here works great it doesn’t disconnect me off the WI-FI I use this system on a computer monitor 4K UHD the graphics look very nice I’m happy I got this PS4 console. I also love that it’s slim and doesn’t take much space light weight. I purchased as a pick up and Best Buy always comes through all my items are always give me 30 minutes wait until I get to pick up even though it gives you a one hour time frame.

    The Under-rated lesser god of the pantheon

    A great console that unfortunately signals the death of an era. The console works as advertised, 60 frames or more at 1440p for any games that have been updated with such support. This console is in very few ways inferior to the Series X. It has no disc drive and less internal SSD space, but in the era of digital games external drives are so easy to come by and cheap too. Considering most TVs can't even support the power of the Series X, the Series S is the console to buy unless you already own a huge TV, or one that is over 4K. With the X you will be able to generate 4K content, or 60+ frames with a lower resolution. The S is optimal for most people I would argue, because likely if you own a 4K TV you probably don't have one that is high end with a fast refresh rate. But if your TV is huge you will see a definite lost of clarity in the picture. Overall this console is a lot easier to get a hold of and it's a true next gen experience little different from the Series X. With each update to the OS the previous Xbox One editions get slower and become forcibly more obsolete. Quick resume and the more enhanced always-on are amazing features that bring you to gaming faster than ever. And the sheer amount of frames in comp multiplayer games like Rocket League and R6S are a huge advantage. The Series S is a good place to start if you don't know whether or not you want to upgrade your home entertainment suite and whether or not a better console will actually have effect at all on your current home entertainment suite. And it is also the right console to buy if you're on a budget. Right noe there aren't too many games and next gen experiences but considering that these consoles are being given priority to their previous gen brethren, which are being slowly left behind as we speak, if you game at all then an upgrade is what you need.

    The Bridge Between Last-Gen and New-Gen Consoles

    After playing on my Xbox Series S for a month now I can say I am happy with this little beast console ! This console can play new Xbox One and old Xbox 360 games if it's backwards compatible. The fast load times are amazing on current Xbox games and the increase frame rates are also very much welcomed. I redownloaded alot of past games just to try out how it stacks against my old Xbox One X there just no comparison to how stable it is plus most games are getting a X/S upgrade to take advantage of the new hardware. Then comes the downside to the Series S the internal hard drive only 346 GB is just way too small to build a library of games. You will constantly be deleting/reinstalling and good luck with updates. Sure you can fix this with buying a external hard drive but gotta sacrifice that fast load time or even the pricy $219 SSD just to maintain that fast load time for only 1 TB. If you can get past the small storage space then I would highly recommend you pick up a Xbox Series S to play your current games/older games at higher speeds or framerate but if your wanting bigger space and more graphical enhances of the new games coming down the line then get a Xbox Series X.

    A New Beginning

    I’ll start by saying that up until purchasing this console, I’ve owned everything but an Xbox. There’s been N64, GameBoy Advance, GameCube, PS2, Wii, PS2, PS3, and PS4. Never an Xbox. For the longest time having grown up on the influence of console wars, I’ve always ignorantly thought PS was the better console and Xbox has nothing to offer. I’ve played the 360 a few times and had no experience with the XB1. Coming from the PS4 it’s the smoothest and most satisfying console I’ve played. Transitions between games are seamless including the Quick Resume feature which essentially allows you to have multiple games open just by switching between them. The selection is always mocked because of PS’ well known exclusives, although Xbox has great ones of their own. Some including Gears of War, Halo, Forza, Sea of Thieves, and now their exclusivity deal with Bethesda to launch their future titles on Microsoft platforms. Aside from the games, as I previously stated the transitions are seamless thanks to the SSD (be prepared to buy storage expansion). The UI is extremely convenient once you get used to it, Game Pass is great value for what you’re paying, the performance can hang with the Series X (especially if you don’t have an HDR/4K capable TV), the recording/streaming quality is an upgrade along with the speed that it saves your clips at being very quick (again coming from a PS4). All in all, I’ve only owned this console for one day and I can see myself using it for a thousand more. Highly recommend if you’re looking to try out an Xbox or if you’re looking to upgrade from a One/One S, it could also just serve as portable gaming for anyone who travels frequently.

    Way better then may Xbox one s

    Just picked it up today. Iam writing this review to help out people. Don’t be to worried about the storage. If you had an External hard drive. From your old console. It will work on this system. Your old games that are not x/s up grades will still play from the hard drive you have. Games that are up graded put on the internal hard drive. The console is very small but powerful. Super quiet. Iam coming for the Xbox one s. This new system downloads games super fast and loads way faster then the other. For people that play destiny load took forever. Not with this system. Iam playing on 1080p monitor. And games look so much better. Hope this helps people. Glad I upgraded to this system.

    This S Series Rocks

    I really wanted to get the X series i tried so hard and this one was available so i grabbed it with no expectations. This little thing is powerful looks sweet and plays amazing. I have a 1440 monitor so this ended up being a great purchase. Only bad thing is how hard these new systems are to get and only being digital you can't buy games at the store anymore. Gamepass is amazing also and perfect for this machine

    Impressive Series S

    Even though, there's hype around the Series X and PS5 about the powerful internals. I enjoy having the Series S... I'm impressed of how small it is. And its more than capable of playing next generation games. As of now, I've been playing 2K21 Next Generation.

    If those who don't care about 4K gaming and don't have a ton of games they play on a regular, then I most certainly recommend the Series S.

    Now I can play Next Generation Games

    Honestly was just on Best Buy a few days ago and I seen they had a Xbox Series S so I thought I will see if I can’t place a order and what did you know it went through was actually happy Yes I know this system doesn’t let you have 4K 120 FPS but I don’t care I’m just glad I can play next generation games I’m very impressed at how the Xbox Series S can play games at 120 FPS and 60 FPS really can see a difference yes your not getting a lot of storage only like 364GB not the greatest but at least it’s something if your the type who doesn’t care about having a system that can do 4K 120 FPS then this system is perfect for you now note if you want to play Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition with Ray Tracing on then I have bad news the Series S can’t do it it’s only on the Series X but theirs other games that has Ray Tracing on the Series S but if you don’t care like me on some games then I say get this system

    You will be surprised!!

    So i was lucky and randomly i was on best buys website and i was able to check out with one inn very early January. now i wanted the X & still want the X but im very surprised what this machine can do for the time being! i also bought the 49'' Lg Nano cell tv & can run call of duty and other games at 1440p @120hz. i am thrilled & so happy. This is performing just as good, if not better then my Alienware desktop with a rtx 2070!! Wish it had a bigger SSD tho!!

    PS4

    My daughter said the PS4 works good but the discs do not insert very well. Also, some discs do not play either so she has to download instead.

    great system, design flaw. Fantastic service.

    nothing wrong with Best Buy refurbished or even the awesome system. the PS4 pro seems to have a serious flaw regarding a design issue where the sustem turns on by itself and off which messes with the os and hdd. often it will become to a point where i need to reinstall firmware.

    there were several nights the system turned on by itself and kept resetting. i have read many issues regarding thiS.

    BEST BESY DID A FANTASTIC JOB of refunding the system within my elite member day limit (30). without much issues.

    i really recommend using Best Buy’s warrenty and after service. i been a member for about 15 years, and they never disappointed me.

    the stat review goes toward the design flaw of the system NOT Best Buy.

    Besides, the new PS5 came out, so I would wait to for that system instead when it becomes more available.

    Disappointed!!

    I’ve always been wary of buying refurbished products online and this one just reminded me why. Figured it was a great deal at $299 which is $100 off..until I opened the box! Only thing inside was the PS4 console. It was missing the controller, power cord, hdmi cable, usb cable, and the headset! I returned it to the store and exchanged it for a new one. Geek Squad guy told me the refurbished items are packaged and shipped by Sony. They’re just sold on the Best Buy site. Thanks to Best Buy for some great customer service after the fact but somebody dropped the ball on this one!

    Only came with console

    Bought this for my bf for his bday and I had him open it straight from the box. I had bought him an extra controller prior so that his nephew can play with him. Once he opened it, he realized it ONLY came with the console and 1 power cord. That's it. I reread the description from my receipt online and sure enough, it was suppose to include everything. Thankfully it was a geek squad approved refurbished console so I was able to swap it out but not after going to 2 best buys. The 1st one couldn't help since their systems were down

    Don’t buy refurbished

    This was a horrible experience. First I received the PlayStation with no controller or power cord. Called customer service right away and was given the run around. Just to get a live person on the line took 2 hours. The phone system sucks! Kept hanging up on me. The customer service reps are not very knowledgeable of the system. Took over an hour just to get a label for return. I understand that right now with the pandemic thing are a little crazy but Best Buy needs to do a better job then this. Not happy at all.
