Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 start-up sound revealed

The sound was just shown by Burger King in a tweet, who are promoting a Burger King-Playstation partnership which will be unveiled on the 15th (presumably a promotion to win a free PS5, much like the Xbox-Taco Bell promotion that is currently ongoing):

The PS5 start-up screen was previously leaked back in June, and has now been confirmed to be real by the the Burger-King ad having the same sound. Here you can see the Xbox Series and PS5 start-up screens for comparison, as well as a start-up speed test:

Should be this

PS1, the Japanese Saturn, and Dreamcast had the best boot ups ever.

SEGA CD is up there as is OG Xbox.

Lol of course there is versus videos. I have to say they’re both pretty pleasant

That's definitely better than the official PS5 one, which is kind of boring.

I definitely prefer both the Xbox Series start-up sound and animation, something about the Xbox start-up sound gives me THX vibes:



Was all black Sony controller shown before yet? Well, all black except white/clear buttons...

That concept sound and boot up screen is a lot better.

Stock boot up sound ain't great. Reminds me of Intel kind of.

Only in this leaked ad for a black PS5 (with red lights instead of blue), which was likely a photoshopped hoax:

That Russian leaker back in June clearly got some kind of early prototype PS5 that came with an all black controller. Looks much better than the two-tone controller imo.

Well actually, both of these videos were older. The start up screen comparison was made in June, when the PS5 start-up screen was first leaked (today the leak was confirmed to be the real start-up screen), while the Xbox start-up screen was officially unveiled by MS way back in May in the promotional video for the May Inside Xbox. The start-up speed comparison was made last week, comparing Jeff Grubb's Xbox Series X start-up speed test to the Russian leaker's PS5 start-up speed test.

Yes. It's a dev kit controller.
