A wonderful Console
Hilton N onReviewed by
This man clearly either does not own one or simply just dislikes Sony.
This console is priced competitively with the gaming market, costing the exact same price as its competitor, and cheaper than all new graphics cards. The console does not have quick resume as Dewald mentioned as that is a feature of the competitor, further proving this man has not even touched the console. The sleep mode resumes very fast into whichever game you were playing, it outputs at 4k and is capable of playing 4k Blu-Rays which is wonderful.
The dual sense controller is the only next generation controller and it feels awesome to experience, Truly after the success of the PS4's Launch Sony has hit another home run and the exclusives released so far are incredible.
Truly worth every cent.
Wait for a revised version.

The base PS4 launch console was a disaster and this is following the same trend. The PS Pro is also just a loud piece of crap with fake 4K (The Series X was the first real 4K console) The PS4 slim hit the sweet spot and is an amazing piece of kit.
Im sure the PS5 slim will be great in due time but not a the moment.

An honest PS5 review
Kevin B onReviewed by
The PS5 console itself is a chonky piece of hardware, an absolute unit. The largest console I have ever owned. This device will stand out in most living rooms. Sony was obviously going for a bold statement here. I also feel that form follow function here as the curved "wings" prevent the air intakes from getting blocked. Just be prepared to have space available for this console. The device is also very quiet compared to the PS4 Pro.
This is the best Sony controller to date. It is slightly larger than the PS4 DualShock and slightly heavier. It also has haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that, while not transformative to the gaming experience, adds some great tactile feedback to games that support it. Also, USB-C FINALLY!
This can be summed up in one word. Elegant. There will be improvements as the patches roll out, but the UI and UX is perfectly functional at launch.
While there are not many games that are really 100% exclusive to the console yet, the Spider-Man games running the PS5 versions are fluid at 60FPS but you can only have Ray-Tracing enabled at the 30FPS mode. I think we will in time see some amazing 1st part Sony games just like we did for the last generation. But for now, if you missed out on the launch drops of the consoles, you are not really missing out. So there is really no need to be leaving rude reviews for Raru like some of the guys below this.
All in all, this is a true "next-gen" console that is a must get within the next 6 months to a year due to the "skinny" launch line up of games. The controller is a big improvement and the looks of the device itself are striking. I see this console hitting its stride with a few more next-gen exclusives landing next year.

When can we expect the second batch of preorders to be shipped and delivered?
Willem G on (Verified Buyer)Reviewed by
However, my order history suggests that the unit may only ship on 31 December; when will you be able to provide some clarity?
Raru Admin Note:
The 31 Dec. is a place holder date. The hope is that the stock will come in before then, but if there are delays we will let customers know.

Raru Admin Note: The second drop pre-order allocation sold out in about a minute due to overwhelming demand. The next drop is expected early 2021. We will advise once we get more info regarding when those pre-orders can go live again.
At this point, I think it's safe to assume there will not be a second allocation before release
Joshua C onReviewed by
I guess I'll be contending for a console on release day.
