PlayStation 5 one month after the launch: what happened in the meantime

On November 19, the next-gen console PS5 arrived on the market: what happened a month after the launch between sold out stocks, scams, new games and updates

It 's now over a month since the launch of the PlayStation 5 and it's time for budgets. Sony's next-gen console arrived on the global market on November 12 and in Italy on November 19. Stocks were immediately sold out for the PS5, both in the standard version with optical drive and Digital Edition.

So much hype and the rush to sell was inevitable for the next-gen console, which offers a completely revolutionized gaming experience thanks to exceptional technical features, from the hardware even if bulky to the software, which has already received its first update. There has been no shortage of problems, of course, with scammers on eBay who have sold the price of the console simple photos to unsuspecting users. In the meantime, those who managed to grab one, has been able to try the new games, remakes and titles with graphic restyling as Demon's Souls and Marvel's Spider-Man. Here's what happened in the meantime.

PS5: orders and pre-orders sold out amidst Sony's apologies

When Sony announced the opening of PS5 pre-orders last September, it didn't imagine that in just a few hours the limited stock would sell out so quickly, so much so that it apologized to fans and potential buyers.

For those who were unable to pre-order the next-gen console, the only solution remained to purchase it on November 19 at launch, and even here there was no shortage of difficulties. The sites of sellers such as Unieuro and GameStop went haywire due to too much traffic, while on Amazon stocks appeared and sold out in no time.

Between delayed deliveries, both due to too many orders and Covid-19 restrictions, clutching a PS5 in the hands of someone was a real odyssey, which, however, was resolved with the possibility of playing with a powerful next-gen console that did not disappoint expectations.

PS5, the main novelties

The new PlayStation 5 console is region-free and will allow streaming games on PS4 as well. Although less powerful on paper than the rival Xbox Series X, the PS6 offers 4K resolution, a frame rate of up to 120 fps and support for ray tracing for better visuals.

The most loved aspect is the speed of loading: it only takes a few seconds and the user will be immersed in the gaming experience. It's the DualSense controller, however, that provides the true next-gen experience with an ergonomic design, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

PS5, the best games and the Cyberpunk 2077 problem

Tra i migliori titoli già disponibili, sia per PS5 che per PS4, ci sono Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Godfall, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, il remake di Demon’s Souls, Watch Dogs: Legion, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War e Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, che si possono trovare in vendita anche su Amazon.
