Playstation 5 Sale-What We Know So Far

After the PS4's tremendous success, we had very high expectations for the PS5. And happily, Sony's next-generation console lives up to expectations and outperforms its forerunner in practically every way.

The PS5 DualSense controller, Sony's ingenious new pad with adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, is nothing short of a revelation, and the combination of more potent hardware, a modern user interface, quick load times, and cutting-edge features like 3D audio also contributes to the genuine impression that the PlayStation 5 represents a generational leap over the PS4. It's really difficult to switch back to Sony's older console.

The PS5's enormous size means that it is quiet when in use and maintains an appropriate level of cooling, albeit it may be a bit of an eyesore and its futuristic-looking design won't appeal to everyone. The console can still be positioned horizontally or vertically, however, we truly wish it didn't require support when turned on its side. More importantly, we're happy to report that we haven't encountered any hardware problems since launch, which is usually a small cause for worry following the introduction of a new console.

Support for 120Hz TVs with HDMI 2.1 is one area where the PS5 has lagged behind. There isn't really any point in rushing out to get a competent monitor just yet because very few games truly allow you to take advantage of the silky-smooth frame rates of 120fps. Additionally, despite being prominently featured on the console's packaging, 8K resolution is not currently supported.

Even if you don't have access to the newest TVs, you will still benefit from the PS5's powerful processing capability. You may still take advantage of incredibly quick load times, improved speed, and a higher level of visual fidelity in both new and classic games.

Sony has also reimagined the core components of the user experience and added some gratifying extras to boot, from a simpler setup to a well-thought-out user interface: Backward compatibility guarantees that your old collection of PS4 games works right out of the gate, and PS Plus members may immediately play a selection of 20 games. The result is a platform that we cannot help but be pleased with, which is eventually bolstered by the PlayStation 5's strong catalog of exclusive games that is constantly expanding.

For installation into your PS5, the Samsung 980 Pro SSD series satisfies all prerequisites. The heatsink is already attached to them, first and foremost. Although it is only one extra step, buying an M.2 drive for the PS5 that is spec-compatible but does not come with a heatsink is not overly difficult. You can simply drop it into your PS5 to increase the amount of storage space accessible because the heatsink is already fitted as part of the 980 series' boxed deal (which is great timing, given the release date for God of War: Ragnarok was just revealed).

It is faster than necessary for PlayStation 5 read and write speeds in addition to having a relatively simple installation process. The Samsung 980 series clocks in at 7,000Mbps, greatly exceeding the minimums required by Sony for compatibility, which is 5,500Mbps for SSD read speeds.

The PS5 can accommodate both the 1TB and 2TB Samsung 980 M.2 drives, and replacing the drive isn't too challenging. The Samsung 980 is a great option for your PC storage needs as well as those related to gaming on consoles. Even with 128GB of DDR5 RAM and an overclocked i9 CPU, you're doing yourself a disservice if you're using a standard SSD (or worse, a spinning platter) to run your games. Drives are frequently the culprits behind PC performance bottlenecks.

If you want to look around for something else or get a SATA SSD for PC storage, Prime Day offers a tonne of discounts on SSDs, so this is a wonderful opportunity to save money.

To continue the theme of money-saving, Amazon is currently offering a special discount on Amazon gift cards only for Prime members. If you're an Amazon Prime member and you spend $50 on an Amazon gift card, Amazon will give you a $12.50 credit. While it may only be used once, the $12.50 value more than makes up for the inconvenience.
