Yesterday a load of Japanese YouTubers got their hands on the PS5. While the hands-on demo was strictly monitored, the users were able to test out a few upcoming games including Astro’s PlayRoom, Godfall and Devil May Cry 5. After spending 80 minutes with the PlayStation 5, the users shared some thoughts about it including the device’s ambient sound and how cool the console was after a long period of gaming.
For starters, Dengeki Online claims the PS5 is super quiet when it comes to its fan sound. The tester played Godfall for a good amount of time and throughout the game, there was next to no sound coming out of the device. According to the report, the user played on the console for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes before he actually started hearing the console. In addition, the user claims the room in which the demo was played was quite hot inside which is also a great sign of the device’s cooling power.
After the full gameplay session, the console was also warm and the surface did not feel hot at all. He claims the unit managed to stay cool after a long gameplay session and in a hot room too.
Other details shared include the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller. The user claims the device is a lot heavier than the DualShock 4 but feels good. The lightbar does not distract you while gaming either and the light changes colours depending on the game and situation.
The PS5 DualSense controller also includes a microphone array which the user claims could detect his voice while positioned on the counter in front of him. In Astro’s Playroom, the user had to speak into the mic to turn a windmill. He tested the microphone up close and on the table and it worked. However, we don’t know what the quality of sound is like.
The user also confirmed that the console requires the stand regardless of the position you place it in. The stand is also easy to use for both horizontal and verticle positions.
You can watch the full video down below of the hands-on demo. In the demo, you get a closer look at some of the game as well as the fast loading time between areas and respawning.
