Finder has gone hands-on with Sony's next generation PlayStation 5 console. Here's their PS5 review in progress.
Of the two consoles it sounds like PS5 is the one that will have the actual wow factor when you turn it on, even if the bulk of the first run of good games are multi format.
Yeah absolutely the early previews for the series X are basically like it's a fast Xbox and switches games good. The conversation around ps5 is more how your gaming experience will evolve
"There's no longer an optical audio port (which could cripple many home theatre set-ups)." Someone doesn't know how home theatres work. If you have a sound bar that only connects with optical, you plug the HDMI from the console directly to your TV, and run the optical from the TV to the sound bar. Nothing would be "crippled." If you have an AVR, then you wouldn't need optical at all unless your AVR wasn't 4K-capable, in which case you would connect it the same way (HDMI from console to TV then optical to AVR).
Just pointing out, Though Old tech I have, A Panny Plasma... (Been bloody Brilliant, still is) , Its Optical out runs into my receiver, Consoles , Media Devices via HDMI... However, My Panny Doesn't do Decode/Pass through from the HDMI to Optical... Optical is only for the Digital tuner in my case.... Though Will be upgrading soon, Just want to point out People should first confirm the TV's Capabilities , just to be sure..... Sure, Maybe all new TV's do this, but never assume.
I am just glad my PS4 games will work with DS4,.. Have shit tons of those,..(some so damn overused it is funny they still kinda work)
"But its like getting a VB while your mates are drinking Stone & Wood." ROFL brilliant analogy, let me guess you are on the GC?
Well, Im typing this chugging a VB, and about to grab another... I like a beer for a hard earned thirst.... I do enjoy my wheat beers, Love a Coopers Sparkling , Though the Pale Ale tastes like used Dishwater... Its disgusting.. Furphys covers my Pale ale.... But, If you want a Beer that is but beyond , well beer... Forbidden Fruit. OMG. It is what these micro breweries will never achieve.
All he does is moan lol they are really trying to dent ps5 big time aparantly Sony says pre orders are so high that it beats out 3 months of USA sales fro. Ps4 launch
I actually thought it was clearly in favour of the PS5 being spectacular. Got to mention the cons, even if the pros outweigh them.
But some of his "cons" are such reaches. He makes an odd comment about the Dualsense possibly being troublesome for those with large hands, despite it being bigger than the Dualshock 4. Wtf?? And I'm sorry, complaining about the lack of optical audio in 2020 is about the equivalent of complaining about the lack of component cable support.
