PS5 Controller

For the first time in quite a while, Sony radically shook up the design of their first-party controller and introduced us to the DualSense. It's inarguably the biggest leap in quality and tech that we've seen for a controller on any PlayStation console.

This is a pretty impressive piece of tech. Their haptic feedback motors take rumble to the next level with unique vibrations that differs substantially according to the gameplay.

Sony built adaptive triggers into the controller too. These will offer you an immersive amount of resistance during gaming. So actions like pulling a bowstring back or firing a machine gun will actually be felt on your trigger fingers. 

The DualSense has a built-in microphone and speaker. As well as a headset jack for your own PS5 headset of choice. There is once again a built-in rechargeable battery, motion control functionality, and the touchpad returns too. With all of this included, it's easy to see why we recommend Sony's official offering only for at least the time being.

PS5 Games

One of the reasons why Sony's PlayStation consoles are so dominant each generation is because of their incredible first-party exclusives. And that's sure to be no different on the PlayStation 5.

New PS5 games are announced all the time. The system debuted with hits like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls. And we know that sure-to-be hits like God of War: Ragnorak and Spider-Man 2 aren't all that far off. 

PS5 Preorder

Following the system's launch on November 12, 2020, there aren't really any more sites that are allowing for PS5 preorders. Instead, most folks have to rely on the luck of running across one or digging deep to pay off a scalper (not recommended). 

There are other options though to help you increase your odds of getting a system. There are sites such as NowInStock.net that can help to notify you when new stock becomes available for order. And StockInformer.com is a great option to use too.

Also, if you're a Twitter user, there are a slew of accounts such as PS5 In Stock Alerts that can help you to scoop one up too.
