5 disadvantages of the PlayStation 5
5. Dualshock for PS4 games only
With the arrival of the PlayStation 5, Sony is giving gamers the choice of getting the new console, while playing PS4 games. This is possible with the DualShock 5 controllers that you had with your PlayStation 4 or with the DualSense controller of the PS5. If you want to play PlayStation 5 games, you just can’t get started with these DualShock controllers. The PS4 controller only works with PS4 games. A quick local multiplayer game on a PS5 game is therefore not an option if you don’t have additional DualSense controllers at home.
4. Get rid of the PlayStation 4 version!
Sony has a great option with the PlayStation 5 for people who have a lot of PS4 games. You can play both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with many games (if the developer allows). Of course, we won’t ignore the free game update, because the PS5 version of FIFA 21 seems a bit tighter than the PS4 version.
The only downside is that the Sony console still recognizes the Playstation 4 disc, although the PS5 version of this game is already installed. The PS5 then happily starts installing the PS4 version and of course you don’t wait for that. Not at all given that this happens with every PS4 game. So if you’ve got some of those cross-gen titles, this SSD is no time cluttered with game versions you don’t use.
3. Lack of space
Speaking of this SSD: it’s secretly smaller than expected. Where Sony has equipped the PS5 with a good fast 1TB SSD, in practice there is much less left. With just over 600 GB, you’ll have to do this. You can (for now) forget about the expansion, because Sony doesn’t want to know about it.
It’s unclear if Sony will offer an update that might create external drives. The external SSDs you currently have in the closet will therefore have to wait a bit. And when that disc is full, the age-old question follows: What game am I really going to delete?
2. User interface issues
With the PlayStation 5, games get a bit smoother. The worlds seem a little more magical and the battles are more intense. Sony doesn’t stop at games when it comes to innovation, because the console menu has also been completely reinvented. Where everything still looks familiar at first glance, many innovations have been made. For example, there are activity cards that give you new perspectives, or at least they should, because in practice they don’t add much except for the fun of it. thing.
In addition to the renewal, the new menu of the PlayStation 4 also brings some adjustments. For example, you can no longer turn off the console or put it into sleep mode by pressing and holding the PS button, but there are a number of actions you need to perform before you get what you want. . Everything has gotten a little bulkier in this area and that’s a big downside to the PS5.
1. Format to scare
The biggest downside to the PS5 is its size. The PlayStation 5 can rightly be called a cooker. The console is so large that it sits in an average TV cabinet, takes up half the space, and next to a reasonable TV demands attention due to its gigantic size.
The fact that the console is also white with black and has blue lighting only ensures that more attention goes to this console, instead of your screen. The console is also quite heavy. It’s the Godzilla of consoles, so to speak, but with a more gallant design. Because to be fair, the design itself is original.
Bonus: PS5 Tip – Use someone else’s profile to be or play his games
If you have a PS5 at home and play it regularly, you will soon be finished with the release games. A good option is to use a friend’s account to play more games. If you have his account on your PS5 on primary (in settings then in accounts) and then make sure that the person is logged in before logging into the console, you can also play the games on that account. This way you can enjoy all the PS5 games without having to buy them all!
