Sony is launching the PlayStation 5, the new generation console, on November 19th in Brazil. Besides the typical visual improvements that always come with a new video game, the most important novelty is the storage system. Equipped with SSD technology, the promise is that the game will load practically instantly.
Another bet from Sony on its hardware is the new joystick. The wireless controller, called DualSense, offers tactile response, adaptive trigger effects and a built-in microphone.
The product is available from R $ 4,499 in the version without a disc player. The console with Blu-ray player costs $ 500 more. Abroad, the same device costs 399 US dollars (approx. 2,300 R $) or 499 US dollars (2,800 R $).
Check out the PlayStation 5’s unboxing. The device was handed over to Folha by Sony for testing:
Sony’s main competitor is Microsoft, which is launching the new Xbox devices that same month. Microsoft cut prices after announcing the tax cut. Sony has not made any statements in this regard.
The PlayStation 5 comes with a controller, a power cable, an HDMI cable, a USB-C cable and the Astro’s playroom game in memory.
