So, without further ado, let’s get started.
How is Playstation Different From Other Gaming Consoles?
The reason why Playstation is so popular is due to its focus on hardcore gamers.
For this reason, it puts out many exclusive titles and high-powered consoles with the highest quality visuals. This is how it sets itself apart from its competitors.
For instance, Nintendo rivals Sony in terms of exclusive titles, but it does not deliver horsepower. You can read more about Nintendo here.
Moreover, Sony also doesn’t shy away from putting out content for mature audiences such as Blood and Truth. Whereas Nintendo focuses on a wide range of ages, including children.
In addition, it also enjoys support from third-party studios. This way you get to play all the third-party games on your console as soon as they’re available.
Getting Started with Playstation 5
If this is your first time with Playstation 5, there are some things that you need to do before setting it up.
For starters, make sure your PS5 is running at 4K and 120 FPS. This way, you’ll get the best gaming experience possible.
However, if you don’t know how to enable 120 FPS, it’s fairly easy. All you need is a 120 Hz TV or monitor to take advantage of the high frame rate.
On the contrary, if you’re coming from a PS4, we recommend you transfer all your data to your new console before you start playing. This way, you won’t have to purchase the same games again on PS5.
Speaking of games, picking out PS5 games might be confusing since most titles are cross-gen.
Therefore, we strongly advise you to pay close attention to the games you’re downloading. You want them to be the PS5 versions and not their last-gen counterparts.
Another thing you need to consider is storage.
Unfortunately, the PS5 storage isn’t as big as we hoped. As a result, it gets extremely easy to fill it up even with the next-gen SSD.
Thankfully, this is an easy fix. We suggest you install an ultra-fast M.2 SSD into the PS5 for some additional storage space.
However, if you don’t want to spend the extra money, you can also transfer your games to a PS5 external hard drive. This way you’ll be able to keep all the files and play them whenever you like.
If you’re a serious gamer, investing in a Playstation is definitely worth it.
Aside from the exclusive content, it offers stunning 4K performance, faster load time, and a more immersive experience.
Moreover, Playstation 5 is only getting better with new updates, features, and games. So, you’ll be treated with a true next-gen experience if you decide to go with this console.
