Unboxing the PlayStation 5

The PlayStation 5 is on the horizon, and it’s bringing a whole lot of amazing new technology with it.  Powerful GPUs, CPUs, and an internal SSDs make things blisteringly fast, but we need to talk about those amazing haptic controllers!  We have a full unboxing of the hardware in the video above, as well as a look at Astro’s Playground – the fun little free pack-in game that comes with the console that showcases a lot of the controller’s new functionality.

We’ll be doing some comparative analysis of Performance versus Fidelity mode on Spider-Man: Miles Morales, side-by-side comparisons of games like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and so much more.  Stay tuned right here at Gaming Trend for all your next-gen details!
