Venture Beat reporter Jeff Grubb has taken on the controversy he wants there new hardware revision from PS5, recently circulating on the market, worse of the original. According to him, it is basically absurd to say this, because to do so you lose sight of what is the main objective of the players when they buy a console: to play.
Grubb starts from the now infamous Austin Evans video, which right from the title states “The New PS5 is Worse” (trad. The new PS5 is worse), and analyzes some points, in particular the small cooling system. Grubb notes that all criticalities detected from Evans, however, have no impact on the performance of the console, which remains identical to that of the base model. For example, while it was true that the new PS5 heats up more than the old one, we are talking about only 3-4 degrees which have no real influence on the user experience, which remains the same.
Grubb: “I suppose you can say that the latest PS5 model is worse if you buy it as a weird silicone-cooled toy. But most people will buy it to play. And both the original hardware and that. revised run the same games with the same performance. “
Grubb also adds that since the new model is less noisy, this should be considered a plus: “It’s hard to say that the new PS5 is worse when it does better at reducing noise pollution.”
Our concludes by saying that if Sony had launched the new hardware in a model revised in the external design, a kind of PS5 Slim, no one would have had anything to say and similar comparisons would not even have occurred.
Finally, a note of praise for Sony comes from noting how the lesser amount of material necessary to produce the new version of the console, it will also reflect on the production of the same, with an increase in units for the stores already in 2021 (as well as significant benefits for the ecology).
