PlayStation 5 is here and while it's not perfect - HDMI 2.1 features are lacklustre - the overall package is still a home run from Sony. Rich goes over thermals, power consumption and display features, picks over the storage situation and enthuses over a beautiful UI.

Our own Kai also took a very good look at the PlayStation 5, highlighting the many features of the console and of the DualSense controller in his review. Between the Sony console and the Xbox Series X, the PlayStation 5 is the one that feels like a true step into the next-generation of consoles.

Sony's entry into the next-generation console war is the one that feels like a proper next-gen system. Rather than simply expanding on the existing libraries, Sony has established themselves as the console that's going to bring gamers into a new era. The software and UI are both early on in their implementation, but it's the combination of Sony's new Tempest AudioTech, titles that can take advantage of the SSD, and the DualSense controller that truly make this console stand out among the rest.

The PlayStation 5 launches in North America this week, on November 12th, and on November 19th in the rest of the world. As confirmed by Sony last week, no unit will be available for purchase in stores, and all orders will have to be placed online. This has been decided to keep players and staff safe during the current pandemic.
