What’s new with Sony PS5?

New controller

The New DualSense controller is minimalistic with its bold design. It is a huge leap from the common gamepads and controllers to a modern controller with a well-designed and functional design. The adaptive triggers that sensitive to variable resistance can provide a more realistic experience. The new controller is a game-changer when it is compared with the earlier versions of the PS5 controllers.

Streamlined UI

The new UI has similarities to PS4 UI with identical settings options. However, the new UI seems more granular and the video output settings seem more optimized than the previous versions. The interface is familiar and with lesser software issues than before.

Exclusive game lineup

The native PS5 games lineup gives an excellent gaming experience to its users as promised. The pre-installed games lineup including the Astro’s Playroom can be a demonstration for the console and the new controller. It is the same Playroom on PS4 but the controller feels awesome to squeeze the trigger and it is on the newly introduced DualSense controller. The Astro’s Playroom highlights the unique game elements with its great features.

Apart from the above-highlighted features, the new design and the new look is appreciated by many reviewers. The new solid-state drives (SSD) made a huge impact on the game loading time and this is a major improvement too. Despite all the positive plus marks, there are few negative aspects of the new Sony PS5.

Downs of new Sony PS5


The dimension of the new Sony PS5 is around 39 x 10.4 x 26cm (H x W x D). Due to the curved surface, it is not easy to get the exact dimension. The weight is 4.5kg which is a considerable weight for a console. It will be tricky to place the console in your setup as it seems the largest console in the modern gaming world.

825GB SSD storage

Since modern games allocate a lot of disk space, the 825GB SSD will fill up quickly and you will run out of space soon. It is a big negative aspect for a well-designed console made by Sony. Even if you use external storage via USB, you won’t be able to enjoy lightning-fast loading with it.

Limited backward compatibility

Gamers love to roll over to the previous games they played from time to time. The backward compatibility of the games played on previous versions such as PS4 won’t work on the new PS5 anymore. However, support is being added to the new PS5 and the issue will be resolved soon.

If you’re looking for high-quality 4k gameplay with great controller haptic, fast UI, and faster loading times, PS5 will be a great option for you. Rethink your choice if you are looking for a small size, higher storage, good sound with Dolby Vision or Atmos, and backward compatibility console.
