Any serious gamer will want to find the latest PlayStation under their Christmas tree.
The PlayStation 5 is pretty much sold out everywhere, but sporadic reorders are expected from retailers between now and Christmas. If you’re lucky enough to snag one, you’ll make the gamer in your life very happy this Christmas season.
If you did manage to snag a PS5, there are plenty of accessories that are perfect for Sony’s next-gen console.
There are two new 5 models: the PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition. For the uninitiated, the big difference is that the digital version has no drive.
The PS5 Digital Edition is perfect for gamers who only use the online store and want to save a decent amount up front, as this console is almost €100 cheaper.
However, the slightly larger PS5 comes with a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive, which can be handy if the lucky recipient doesn’t already own a Blu-ray player or likes to buy physical games. Gamers can also take advantage of the free PS4 upgrades, which allow them to transfer physical PS4 games to the new console. So basically you are playing for flexibility.
But both consoles offer next-generation games with the latest titles and incredible graphics. Gamers will enjoy the lightning-fast load times, ultra-fast SSD, haptic feedback and stunning gaming experience on the PlayStation 5.
Who is it for?
Real gamers: Both versions of the console offer crystal clear graphics and fast gameplay. Serious gamers can’t wait to get their hands on new titles like Demon’s Souls, Godfall and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Teenagers: Since the 1980s, video games have been a hallmark of youth, and the PS5 will be one of the most coveted devices that any teenager will hold in high regard.
Comic book fans: One of the most lauded new releases for the console is Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, making it a great gift for a die-hard comic book fan.
The PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition can certainly be used by children, but both are quite an investment and many of the games are aimed at older teens and adults.
What makes it the perfect gift?
Frustration-free gaming: The new console offers lightning-fast loading with an ultra-fast SSD. That means less annoying waiting time and more gaming fun. Or as Sony puts it: “The power of a custom CPU, GPU and SSD with integrated I/O sets new standards for what a PlayStation console can do”.
Immersive gaming: Both versions promise an even more intense gaming experience with support for haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and 3D audio technology. Whether players are conquering new shores as Vikings or swinging through skyscrapers as Spiderman, they will truly feel like they are in the middle of the action.
Playstation 5 Gaming Controller:
The hyper-futuristic DualSense represents a significant departure from the DualShock, which has served as the design language since the release of the very first PlayStation in 1994. The controller goes its own way by mimicking the console’s new matte white Stormtrooper case and featuring a number of refined features that contribute to a sleeker, unique shape.
While the controller has the same curves as its predecessors, the DualSense simply looks better and cleaner. Instead of a large LED area on the top of the controller indicating power, an attractive blue light now shines under the trackpad, which is much more responsive and smooth than its predecessor.
In the meantime, we have a huge selection of modified controllers for PS5.
