    As cool as ray tracing is, higher frame rates is more important to me so I'll definitely be sticking with performance mode on my ps5.

    Great review. Thank you for a detailed breakdown. I'm looking forward to getting mine this week. I started my gaming experience with the PS3 40GB back in 2007. It finally died in 2015 so I purchased a PS4 and 2018 moved up to the PS4 PRO. Now I'm ready for the PS5.😃

    Before even seeing it I 100% garauntee it's a positive review - because giving any critisism whatsoever would mean you may not get any more early release deals from Sony.
    Hence, pointless review, because it isn't a review.

    Great review. Ray tracing is a fad. Yes, its nice and helps with immersion and is inevitable. Developers though should focus on new "gameplay" mechanic that have a lasting experience on gaming.

    8:45 I hope this is just because the system isn’t optimized or games aren’t optimized but having games like Spider-Man running at a max 60fps at 4K without ray tracing is a bummer. I really do it has to do with optimization because the xbox series x can play COD Warzone at 4K 120fps (not sure about ray tracing) and the PS5 can only do 60 FPS right now. It’d be amazing to get at least 4K 60fps with ray tracing and 4K 120fps without ray tracing in future updates

    lol watch dogs is not a good example to show off ray tracing. The game is totally unoptimized and broken, DLSS doesn't work properly either! Show some other ray tracing game like Control for instance.

    I’m a parent now and the thing I enjoy the most in gaming is catching up with my friends while we play together, so being an early adopter doesn’t really benefit me in this area. Team Xbox with my uni friends and team PS with my school friends. 🤷🏽‍♂️
