One of the most preferred technology to be launched this 2020 is the PlayStation 5, with enthusiasts and hardcore players going to extremes only to acquire their own unit from the Sony Direct store or retail firms. However, though others are always on the quest to get the PS5, some have seen what the console of the next decade has to give and have noticed where it is lacking.
The PlayStation 5 boasts a solid-state drive, Type-C USB interfaces, 8K monitor, smooth 60fps gaming (and more), etc., the finest the new generation has to bring. Although a major improvement from the seven-year-old PS4 is definitely the next-generation console, it is not the perfect hardware there is.
Sony claims, “Play Has No Limits.” But the small supplies are definitely irritating and a game impediment.
In addition to the huge dilemma of the restricted supplies of the next-generation console, the PS5 often carries with it small problems and elements that have not captured the gamer’s acceptance. In comparison, the PS5 is a comparatively modern console with large proving grounds for designing and meeting interface specifications.
There are also some main points that the PlayStation 5 needs to change, according to Game Rant, considering its significant improvement from the PS4 that debuted in late 2013. All the intended functionality and user demands of the console are not fulfilled, and will definitely not satisfy everybody as each customer has various tastes.
PS5 2021: 5 Characteristics Consumers Want from Sony
Internal M.2 SSD slot Storage expansion
Compared to the PS4, which has easy removal and attachment of hard disk drives on its slot, the PlayStation 5 now has minimal capacity. The PS5 solid-state drive (SSD) technology is definitely one of the strongest pairs for lightning speed load times, but with just 825 GB, it has minimal availability.
Not just that, users were only willing to use 664 GB since the console needed an initial boot to load the operating system. This problem can be solved by the additional M.2 SSD slot of the PS5 that can handle an extra disk, but it is still inaccessible for console use. Although the M.2 SSD is slower than the PCIe, this is a definite hard drive improvement.
Home Customization Screen
As shown on the PlayStation 5‘s home screen, the games that were recently played will show at the top of the list and so on. Indeed, particularly for gamers who are specific about design and presentation on home screens, this would be a huge issue.
PS5 Save Manual Data Back-up
PS5 data protection allows users to subscribe to save files via the cloud via the PS Plus subscription service, with no other backup solutions. Users would like to add manual data back-up via external hard drives to the PS5, and so on.
Themes on PS5
One of the features consumers got while the PS4 was Sony’s star console was to personalize the home screen. The PS5 does not, however, provide the same functionality in its setup.
Linear Refresh Rate for Settings for Game
For their huge output, frame rates, and displays that can complement a certain game’s visuals, next-generation consoles are common. Some can not keep up with it, though, and the Variable Refresh Rate in the settings needs to be changed. This is not yet provided by PS5, which leaves players to see blurred displays because of each game’s extreme execution.
