yeah man, i'm one of the lucky ones who got a ps5 just in time for the release. here are a few words after i tested it a bit over the weekend.

I don't think you have to say much about the look of the ps5. The design is a matter of taste and will not satisfy everyone. But the console is already huge and will not fit in every compartment of a cupboard. Here you should measure before the purchase.
Since there were no next gen games available for release that interested me, i had to make do with the tech demo and the PS+ titles. The audio- haptic feedback of the controller is a great feature that will play a big role in future games. For example, you can feel the different surfaces on which you are walking with the character.
The resistances of the shoulder keys adapt to the game, which will certainly play a major role in shooters later on also the rumble features of the controller provide more immersion.
I personally don't like the motion control (tilt controller as command input) this already annoyed me on the ps3.
The controller lies very well in the hand but i dislike the pressure point of the 4 main keys. They feel as if they have been used millions of times.

The console is much quieter than its predecessors and i haven't noticed any disturbing noises. I also could not detect any heat development, this will only become apparent when the right performance is required.
Contrary to earlier messages the sound format Dolby Atmos is supported, at least with Blurays (here you have to switch to "Bitstream Dolby" in the settings. But Dolby Vision is not used at all.

About the performance itself, I can't say anything, I'm not an expert and I don't want to presume a comparison to the XBox Series X.
In my opinion, the exclusive games will decide which console sells so much better. In my opinion, the PS5 still has the advantage (Horizons 2 for example). However, the purchase of Bethesta by Microsoft could become a gamechanger, that will certainly take a few more
years.

Great reply man. Yeah, all I'm looking for are the exclusives. Looking at Microsofts strategy over the next 5-6 years it's pretty evident they want to cross-platform with PC for a lot of their titles. Halo is just the beginning.
I've never owned a PS, but their list of exclusive games is just ridiculously good.
Unfortunately I didn't get a PS5 this time around, but if I want to I can buy one from a private owner for 1200 dollars haha. People are going insane with that and I, with all my heart, hope those people who bought 10-20 consoles just to sell them for a much greater price never sells a single unit. F*ck those people and their greed; Sure, it's not illegal, but I really do hope people are smart enough to not buy one from a private seller for a much, MUCH greater price.

That's absolutely right! These people should choke on their greed. I really wish everyone who enjoys gaming that they get their console early, of course at the normal price.

So, did anyone actually manage to get one, haha?
I'm considering a PS5 since pretty much every Xbox game will be available on PC anyway. But I won't buy one until Spring or Summer
I think I'll pass on the next gen consoles for now, but a few of my friends have gotten their ps5's. No complaints, other than the HORRIBLE Playstation chat party update, but that also goes for ps4 as well, which annoys the hell out of me, too.

I've been getting more and more into graphic design and animation type Adobe After Effects work...along with music production, I think I'll just save up for a beast of a PC rather than a ps5. Thank goodness everything is pretty much cross-play anyway, I'll just use my ps4 controller instead of the mouse and keyboard, haha.

Best of luck getting yours! I'm sure after the holiday craziness has gone down, they'll be readily available everywhere.

Currently playing Control on PS4. Not mind blowing, but fun gameplay and a very interesting environment/world.

Yeah, Control is a pretty fun game. The gameplay is snappy and I the story is rather interesting.

Currently playing Yakuza: Like A Dragon. What a fun game, the story is bat-shit crazy and the characters are just superbly written. Wonderful game!

And I just bought an MSI 3080 Gaming TRIO X - no idea when it will show up (most likely in 2021), but I'm excited, haha

The launch of this game is a clusterfuck. And gaming sites are pumping 10/10 for this?
Seems like another soulless open-world game with boring gameplay and awful AI.

Most people who've played it, not reviewers per se, say it has a lot of soul, wonderful graphics and a fantastic story, but everything is held down by bugs, specifically on consoles. Glad I bought it on PC. Haven't played it yet as I'm currently going through Yakuza.
