Now you’ve heard us talk about the PlayStation 5 a lot in the past few months So we thought we’ll be interesting to put the tall out on social media to see what our community thinks about the playstation 5 we asked what are you most excited about when it comes to the playstation 5 , now we got a lot of great answers so thank you to everyone for contributing looking over these answers it was quite clear that there are eight main reasons why people are excited to buy the playstation 5 on launch day , so these are the eight main reasons why our community thinks you should buy a playstation 5 at launch.
1- up we have haptic feedback now a lot of you got in touch to say that you were really excited about the dual sensors haptic feedback and adaptive trigger functionality, interestingly we haven’t seen a huge amount about how this will be implemented in games other than people just telling us how it will worth it feels like it’s one of these features that you’ll absolutely have to get your hands on before you can completely understand how it Worth’s , I know that during the PlayStation 5 presentation Sony did do that video that was pretty efficient at explaining how it will work but yeah you’re gonna need to that hands on with this of course we have Astros
playroom which will come pre-installed on every PlayStation 5 and looks set to be focused completely around showcasing these new features , it’s a bit like welcome path on the PlayStation Vita which I mentioned in these videos where more than anyone else should mention welcome part but it serves the same purpose right it’s there to literally let you get to grips with this technology and in short is how developers then implement it moving
forward , but of course the proof will be in the pudding it will be using it on first party releases that come out around the time of the PlayStation 5s launch.
I think Gran Turismo 7 is going to be the best demonstration of this technology , I think driving over the different surfaces and being able to feel how the Beth to the suspension and the dryer than the control you have over the tar as well as the textures of the surfaces being simulated via the haptic feedback , it’s gonna be interesting I’m also really excited about that under two unique selling point two games on the PlayStation 5 we’ll have this as an exclusive way of increasing immersion which is very exciting .
2-Next up we have 3d audio similar to the haptic feedback comments we were getting a lot of people are just excited to see how this will work , I think a lot of people played games with headphones and they can already understand how good the audio is on the PlayStation 4 , so when Marta cerny says that there is a huge generational leap it’s exciting to think about what that will mean and of course it’s a heart then to demonstrate
via words and video presentations the interesting thing is that a lot of games on PlayStation 4 already do this , so well especially Naughty Dog games and as our editor Sammy Bartha himself mentioned in his review for the Last of Us part two.
The audio is so good in that theme it almost feels like a glimpse of the future like maybe the audio quality in the last of us part two is so good and so well implemented maybe that will just be the standard on PlayStation 5 thumbs to this dedicated audio chip that will allow you to implement enhanced three-dimensional audio , so at the end that’s two features that have the potential of completely revolutionizing immersion on the PlayStation 5 , next up is a bit of an obvious one and we dot a million responses that all said the same thing and that’s the thin they’re most excited about .
3-The reason why they’ll buy a PlayStation 5 at launch is the games specifically the exclusive games .
but by the end of its lifecycle people were picking up the tonsil in their thousands purely because of the exclusive themes people wanted to play Uncharted they wanted to play The Last of Us they wanted to play at moderation races I assume and it’s no different for the PlayStation 4 which has had a better selection of exclusives than the eight BOTS and it’ll be no different for the PlayStation 5 we saw a raft of exclusive
games coming to the PlayStation 5 in that presentation including even third-party timed console exclusives , SONY were incredibly quiet for a long when it came to the PlayStation 5 and they ensured that their first bid reveal of the tonsil focused on the games rather than the hardware because games cell systems and what sony showed off was an exciting selection of games it’s a good tactic from a marketing perspective and also the average consumer they tear about the games and nothing else , they will see trailers for new Ratchet and Clank new Grand Tour is more interesting new third party projects and that’s why they’ll buy the Console , so it made sense
that people will pick up the PlayStation 5 on launch tear because it has games that they want to play simple as that.
4- We have the SSD, I think this will be the main draw for the next generation for a lot of people ,the idea of being able to play games that lourd instantly is a really exciting prospect as games have gotten bitter over the years and as Consoles but then to show their age lauding times are always the first as well T we’re also accustomed to loading screens now that , I think removing them is going to feel like a genuine generational leap the idea that we can load up huge open world games instantly that is going to feel so smooth and so incredible it made sense why people are so excited we’ve seen a little bit of what the SSD is capable of in the ratchet and clan thrift apart trailer which shortest the two main characters seamlessly moving between huge worlds in a fraction of a second which was a wonderful technical shortest which really did show off the power of this proprietary SSD that we’ve only heard about at this point .
I’m very excited in the run-up to launch to see more of what this is capable of I assume we’ll see more in depth DM player demonstrations which will show off these instantaneous lured times everyone’s talking about but yet the SSD makes perfect sense why people are really excited about that .
5-Visuals is next on our list as with every next-generation console the graphical capabilities of it are enhanced significantly in the case of the PlayStation 5 I think we are very firmly in diminishing returns territory now.
I think in general net generation visuals on the PlayStation 5 aren’t going to be as immediately impressive as they were between the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3 for instance , I think a lot of people might look at PlayStation 5 games and or her that looks largely the same as games I was playing on my playstation 4 the real difference I think will be finns like enhanced frame rates hopefully we’ll see a lot of stable frame rates which ,
i think will be a big change we’ll see a lot of native Fortier resolutions instead of the tricks that the PlayStation 4 pro currently has to do and of course we’ll see a lot of enhancements to things like lighting with ray tracing shadow effects particles these are the elements that will differentiate a PlayStation 5 them from a PlayStation 4 them I felt but as is the case with any console graphics will always improve over time you look at the Last of Us part 2 compared to any games that was released in the first few months of the PlayStation falls lifecycle and yeah it’s night and day ,but a day end like I mentioned before and I have mentioned in other videos as well graphics will not sell this generation both the eight spots series eighths and the PlayStation 5 will look visually very similar and people will buy either console based on the exclusives .
6- next up and I thought this was interesting because I haven’t heard a lot of online discourse about this but a few people said that they were excited to buy the PlayStation 5 at launch purely because of the digital edition
Sony haven’t gone into much detail about the digital edition just yet other than the fact that it doesn’t have a 4k blu-ray drive a recent report by digital foundry claimed that removing the blu-ray drive may only reduce the price of the digital edition by $50 which is a minut amount when we’re expecting the console it self to tossed anywhere up to $500 .
PlayStation boss man Jim Ryun sport to the BBC recently and said many of our consumers are purchasing solely digitally these days we thought that we would do what we typically try and do and just offer choice so , it’s literally just there for people who don’t want to buy physical media anymore which makes a lot of sense and it’s not even the first time that Sony have attempted this approach I’m sure so many of us remember the infamous PSP door which I will still maintain was a great idea and a beautiful little Console .
I think the proposition of buying a PlayStation 5 digital edition all comes down to its price , if it’s only 50 dollars cheaper than a normal PlayStation 5 , I can’t see many people opting to purchase it over the one with a dedicated dist tree because that gives you more choice as a consumer but if it was a hundred and fifty dollars less even a hundred dollars less then , I can understand people doing well yeah that’s cheaper that is now more affordable and I don’t mind buying things digitally or maybe there’s a group of people out there who just want to use PlayStation now and if the console is significantly cheaper this offers a very good value proposition for them , they can just download their games as part of their subscription service I think we’ll see more of the digital edition in the run-up to launch and I think Sony probably have plans for PlayStation now that they will reveal at the same time as they talk about price and why you should purchase a digital edition , but it’s interesting to see that people are already up for buying it so it just goes to show that Sony had a reason for creating it and they know their audience.
7-In at number seven and I agree with this so many of you got in touch to say you’re excited for a console that doesn’t sound like a jet engine and I mean of course we’ve all played The Last of Us part two right even on a
Playstation pro it really does sound like it’s about to just start spinning before crashing through the roof of my house I always use the analogy that when I was playing dreams earlier this year the PlayStation 4 Perl dot saw hot , I have to keep turning it off just out of fear that I was going to melt Sony have already said that the PlayStation 5 design has been built around reducing fan noise , I think I can’t believe that’s true hopefully when we’re playing Gran Turismo 7 the PlayStation 5 won’t meet such a rapid .
8-Finally we have PlayStation for backwards compatibility this one makes a lot of sense having your entire PlayStation 4 library playable on day one is exciting enough as it is but with more and more developers promising that certain PlayStation 4 titles will receive free upgrades when you play them on the PlayStation 5 it makes your entire PlayStation 4 bat catalog seem even more exciting , it gives you more of a reason to upgrade straight away than previous consoles , if I buy cyberpunk 2077 Marvel’s Avengers FIFA 21 all of these games will come with enhancements that will completely improve my playing experience it’s just really interesting to think that one of the things I’m most excited about on launch day is to play the hymns I’ve for months just to see how they’re improved on this new console a lot of you got in touch to say that you’re really excited about the PlayStation 5 enhancements to your PlayStation 4 games and Sony themselves have hinted that certain first party games will also receive these enhancements , I’m really hoping that Sony turn around and say that blood-borne is receiving some PlayStation 5 enhancements because that would make my life on top of those eight main reasons a few people got in touch to mention some other bits and pieces a lot of people are excited about the
possibility of a PlayStation VR version- we’ve heard nothing about this but considering the PlayStation VR version one Worth’s on the PlayStation 5 it would be strange if they weren’t planning some form of net generation
upgrade to the headset people are nervous about the price I guess we’re gonna have to say .
I really do believe that Sony are waiting for Microsoft to make the first move when it comes to price and then they’ll undercut them they’ll sell the console for a loss for a long time I think that’s just standard business practice now we just have to wait and see I assume hopefully it’s not too expensive a few people mentioned that they’re excited about an improved user interface I mean yeah we’ve had the same user interface on the PlayStation 4 since 2013 so understandably people are just excited to see something vaguely different and one person mentioned they’d like to see some improvements to the trophy system which.
I agree with they mentioned that they wanted to see features teeth and from the Xbox achievement system which has progress trophies , so if you have to tell 50 enemies the trophy will have a little bar that says you know 34 out of 50 seaton keep tabs on where you’re at I would like to see this as well I think this would encourage people to jump into the Deer mat then to try and grab some easy trophies and if you’re into the other intro fees , I think that just makes it more fun so there we have it that’s it reasons why you should buy a PlayStation 5 at launch this video was a little bit different to our usual stuff .
