The PS5 is one of the most coveted items of 2021. Even months after release, you’re still hard-pressed to find one in-stock at full price. We put Sony’s new console on trial, investigating the pros and cons. Join us to discover if it’s worth the $500 price tag (watch video).


We cover the important questions, such as “What’s different from past generations?” “What’s better?” “What’s worse?” And of course, “If you already own a PS4, do you need a PS5?”

Once you hear the answers, if you decide the PS5 is a must-have, check out this list we put together to help you find one (because they are hard to find).
