Meh, had my ps5 for about 2 weeks. Disappointed that it no longer supports legacy 3d games or movies & doesn’t support dolby vision. So I bought a psvr setup to make up for the loss of 3d but now waiting for the rare-as-hens teeth adapter because they didnt build the ps4 camera connector into the ps5. And no, the new ps5 camera doesnt support psvr. Thanks, Sony.

I suppose its generally faster than a ps4 but not that much. Lots of talk about ray tracing & 4k & faster frame rates but it looks like it still cant optimize these things simultaneously. So really just an incremental improvement, no real quantum improvements. For gaming, 4k just isn’t that much better than standard hd to me. Personally, I cant imagine 8k taking off for 20 years. I have to say that the new home screen/menu gui is kind of a junkyard tbh, so no points there. Plus, its just a lot bigger & more awkward than I imagined. Im still not sure where to put it.

Id say just buy a lightly used ps4 and spend your money on new games or a bigger tv.

What games did you play, since it is likely that the game was not made for ps5 and the developers didn't make loading improvements for the new generation. Btw the ps5 doesn't upgrade the games you had on ps4 and that may be the reason you didn't see much difference in the graphics.

I‘v played IronMan VR, PlayroomVR, GTSport, Star Wars Squadrons, and Farpoint. The VR games are interesting but I cant play for more than 20 minutes without getting motion sickness. Actually, I cant play iron man(vr) at all without falling down.
Regarding games on the big screen, I just can’t imagine the difference between 4k and standard HD will be a game changer. It makes for slightly nicer TV viewing but nothing like the quantum leap from regular HD to 3D was. Admittedly, there were some pretty bad implementations of 3d early on but my 65” lg OLED is great in most 3d movies.
I also dont reallysee the big deal about the controllers either. The old one had decent tactile feedback. I guess Ill have to wait and see what more modern games do with them.
like I said, I think Id stick with PS4 for the next 2-3 years and wait for whatever a ps6 turns out to be. PS5 just doesnt seem like a must have to me, I wish I had saved my money tbh.
