If you’ve been glued to Twitter, Reddit or have been keeping up with PS5 news over the past couple of weeks, you’ll be aware that the big media sites and YouTuber’s have been going hands-on with the PS5. The console has been gone over with a fine-toothed comb and it’s design and features have been scrutinised. The PS5 reviews are now out as the embargo ended today and overall the reviews are very much positive.

Games journalists and YouTubers have praised the PS5’s design and features like the SSD. The DualSense controller is also getting much deserved praise and the general consensus seems to be that the PS5 is pretty awesome.

PlayStation Fanatic didn’t get a PS5 to review sadly, well I didn’t ask for one and I doubt Sony even knows this site exists. Maybe by the time the PS6 rolls around psfanatic.com will be popular enough to get early access to that.

Here’s a selection of some of the media and YouTuber reviews for the PS5.
