Play Has No Limits
I was going to make some crude joke about safe-words but I’ll let you fill in the blanks.
As far as catchy slogans go, this ranks pretty low to be fair. Probably somewhere around ‘Power Your Dreams’, actually. Fortunately, the PS5 and Xbox Series X aren’t relying on slogans to move systems.
Less-than-impactful slogans aside, the core message behind it holds more meaning. Thanks to the super-fast SSD and plentiful horsepower, game developers are far less restricted in achieving their artistic vision. We could finally see games offer never before seen gameplay mechanics, and at the very least, we should have thriving, vibrant gaming worlds to explore.

PS5: Console Design, Controller and Accessories
It’s a very futuristic design, and while it’s certainly eye-catching, it’s also proved to be divisive. Love it or hate it, it’s certainly getting a response out of people.
In its vertical positioning it looks better, but horizontally placed the asymmetric design looks a little unusual. Fair play to Sony, though. They’ve gone out on a limb with the PS5, and it’s good to see them not just playing it safe by putting it in a PC case. Hopefully the design won’t have any repercussions when it comes to heat dissipation and noise.
PS5: Specs and Performance
Sony has done a fantastic job of optimising the PS5, with every link of the chain optimised to eliminate bottle-necks. While it may not have as much tera-floppiness as the Series-X, this removal of any restrictions, paired with the super-fast SSD, means the PS5 will have every last bit of potential squeezed from it.
That’s not to say it’s under-powered, of course, far from it.
