Playstation 5 Console Discussion in Other Consoles Posted November 21 On 19/11/2021 at 12:56 PM, Julius said: How's everyone feeling a year about the PS5 a year in? What do you think of the DualSense a year removed from Astro's Playroom? And what's been your favourite next-gen / console exclusive game or DLC so far? It's been a pretty positive experience overall. The DualSense controller does make the DualShock 4 feel like something that came from a Fisher Price set. Only downside I've had is the DualSense that came with my PS5 broke after 6 weeks, however Sony's Customer Service was pretty good. Took about 10 days from when I called in to getting a replacement, which is still going strong nearly 11 months later. Probably would have had a replacement next day if it wasn't for lockdown. Would have gone to GAME and swapped it out. Having backwards compatibility to PS4 right out the box was ideal, it meant I didn't have to rush through and finish a game off or have to swap back across to the older system to play something. Plus, the DualSense works for PS4 titles, so didn't need to swap back to the DualShock, however even these work straight away on PS5 without needing a special adapter. Playing PS4 titles with a near solid 30/60fps was a great upgrade. More so using the SSD to run the games from, I have since bought an external SSD for PS4 games. PS5 games, can't fault what I've played. I'm not a huge fan of Sony's idea of upgrading PS4 games to PS5 versions at a small cost, when the likes of Microsoft with Xbox can offer Smart Delivery for last gen to next gen upgrades. Thats not to say that all upgrades on PS5 cost, some games like Crash 4, Little Nightmares 2 and Miles Morales were free PS4 to PS5 upgrades, whilst Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima were £10-20 upgrades. Playing Ratchet and Clank on PS5, that was impressive. Astro Playroom, well that was nothing short of a highlight showing off what the console can do. Overall, it's been a pretty good 1st year for PS5. 2022 is shaping up to be better, just hoping that stock issues are resolved by then so more people other than scalpers can buy a machine.
