I once told my friends that the best present I’d love to get for my birthday was a PS5 console. It was quite unfortunate I didn’t get one. I don’t blame my friends for not getting me a PS5 though, I believe the price at the time made everyone stay low.
The PS5 was released on the 12th of September, 2020, by of course the world-class tech company, Sony. Sony started the production of PlayStation consoles in 1994 with the PS1.
Ever since then, the PlayStation consoles have been a thing that caught the attention of many kids, youths, and the likes. As the new models were released they gained more and more popularity and sold fast.
Now, back to why my friends didn’t get me a PS5 console, even if that was what I wanted the most. During the launch in 2020, the Sony PlayStation 5 was priced at $399 and $499. Yeah, there are two prices because there are two variants of the PS5 consoles.
The former which costs $399 is the PS5 digital edition, while the latter which costs $499 is the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive. As expected, the pricing has been reduced presently.
The hike in price then was only because it was launching. Want to know how much a PS5 console costs now? Keep reading this piece. However, before we go into that, let’s discuss the fascinating features of the PS5.
How fascinating is the PlayStation 5?
Let’s start with the Dual Sense™ Wireless Controller. This feature is also present in the PS4 console but some of us who haven’t played the PS4 might not know how it works. I’ll explain briefly.
The controllers have been evolved for new sensations with adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. The Dynamic resistance mimics the tension of interactions with in-game gear and objects in certain PS5™ games.
The haptic feedback on the other likewise, creates responsive vibrations when you make in-game choices. It also simulates environmental factors in some PS5 games.
Asides from that, this new console allows you to speak with other players easily. It comes with an in-built microphone for starting conversations. If you feel that you don’t need this feature, you can turn it off with a dedicated mute button.
Also on the PS5™ Console, you can enhance your audio perception with the 3D audio. The tempest 3D AudioTech is integrated into compatible headphones to boost your gaming experience.
The Pulse 3D™ wireless headset is made for a 3D Audio experience and refined for maximum comfort. It comes with noise cancellation technology and crystal-clear voice capture.
These and many more features come with the PS5™. To learn more about the features, kindly visit the PlayStation website. I just pointed out a few here.
