Bought 3 games. Spiderman Miles, FFVIIR dlc and Ratchet and Clank.
The games were great but man, I barely turned on the thing mainly cause I play on PC but I was expecting this on year one. The disc drive is also pretty noisy. I still don't really like the look of it but it is certainly a conversation starter compared to my Series X which no one notices. Some of the early bugs were a bit concerning but they got fixed with patches. I will probably use it a lot more next year though. It's annoying that we still don't have VRR support. I also hate the new prices of games.
The PSN store is much more improved than the experience I got on the PS4. The Dual Sense controller is amazing and on games that are properly implemented, it gives you insane level of immersion. The loading is also very fast which is a god send compared to last gen. I also like the fact that many old games that were struggling to hit unlocked frame rates last gen can run a pretty stable 60fps if not more. I was originally thinking that the SSD space was gonna be problematic but thanks to the compression engines, the space that a lot of the games require is a lot less than I was expecting.
Overall I'll rate it a 6/10 for first year. I was hoping there would be more exclusives that shows off the next gen experience but delays made the experience a bit more meh. It is off to a good start though and I do like the BC enhancements. As usual, first year is generally a slow start.
