While we in India still don't have a release date for the PS5, a lot of gamers out there have got their hands on the next-gen offering from Sony. The PS5 was launched in the US and a few other markets on 12 November with a wider, global launch scheduled for 19 November. But, not everyone is having such a great time with the PS5. In the past few days since the launch of the PS5, users have had a litany of issues plaguing the console. To be fair, it is only the first batch of consoles and first adopters will usually bear the brunt of faulty consoles with issues that even engineers at Sony could not have predicted. It’s definitely understandable that some users are mad at Sony, but them's the breaks.
We’ve listed down the major issues plaguing first adopters of the PS5 below. Do keep in mind that this is a small sample size, and we’re literally only focusing on the negative here, but if you were going to buy a PS5, wouldn’t you want to know any and every issue with the console? So, let’s see what problems the PS5 has at launch.
There is an entire thread dedicated to various issues that plagued and continue to plague a few PS5 users.
The issues mentioned above are rather minor and can usually be solved by resetting the PS5 to factory settings or redownloading and installing the update in question. The issues mentioned below are the more major ones, causing games to crash and more.
Again, while we in India wait with bated breath for a launch date for the PS5, it looks like the Xbox Series X and Series S have been pretty much sold out in India. At least on Amazon and on Flipkart. You can read more about that story here.
