With bit of a lucky strike, I got a possibility of purchasing one. Ok, lots of luck happened. Bottom line: now I own one of the most coveted gaming consoles. For anybody reading this in 2023 (or after) this entire lack of Playstations will be mostly ignored.
Some unboxing pics:
Notice the power button is the at the bottom of the PS5 unit. From top to down there are two ports USB-A and USB-C. Then there are two buttons, eject and power. The glare from plastic makes taking pictures of the buttons very difficult, so the power button is not that well visible.
Back of the unit:
Two USB-A 3.0 ports, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI and power IEC C7/C8 -connector.
Controller charger port has chaged, again:
In PS3, there was mini-USB, PS4 had micro-USB and now there is USB-C. For an owner of all three mentioned consoles, I just "love" finding the correct cable for charging.
The good thing is, this controller is fully supported in Windows via DS4Windows to enable X-box controller emulation:
The bad thing about DS4Windows is for the software author Mr. Nickles (aka. Ryochan7) got pissed about the issues posted to the project's GitHub page https://github.com/Ryochan7/DS4Windows, so he decided to cease working on it. Luckily there are fans of the software, hence fork https://github.com/shazzaam7/DS4Windows. It is still uknown if this software will be supported and if yes, for how long.
After getting the thing running, the lack of content hit me. Pretty much everything I tried was from my PS4. For example Gran Turismo Sport (the PS4-version) works ok. And on March 4th I will get more native-PS4 content in form of Gran Turismo 7. But until then, it's just a super-fast PS4 for me.
I did pre-order Gran Turismo 7 which is to be released in beginning of March 2022.
