PlayStation 5 and DualSense unboxed
Members of the press have started receiving PlayStation 5 units, and that means more first impressions of both the console and the new DualSense controller.
The PlayStation 5 console is compared to the Xbox Series X in terms of size and weight as well as how it can be oriented. The PlayStation 5 includes a stand to support the horizontal orientation, while the Xbox Series X can just be turned over on its side.
