PS5 Unboxing: A closer look at the console and DualSense controller

Stevivor’s now in possession of a PS5, and we’ve used the opportunity to unbox it, giving you a closer look at the console, its stand and the DualSense controller.

Our quick impressions? The DualSense is solid, heavy and feels extremely confortable, while the PS5 itself it heavy, though not quite as heavy (or as dense) as the Xbox Series X, which we’ve previously unboxed.

Take a look at the video below — and sorry about the flickering video. If you’ve got any questions for us in regards to the PS5, sound off in the comments below! We mightn’t be able to answer them straight away, but we’ll make sure we cover everything when appropriate embargoes lift.

The PS5 heads to store shelves on 12 November.
