    What Does 2021 Hold For The PS5?

    The PlayStation 5 has been off to a solid, if slightly rocky, start in 2020. Despite being Sony’s most exciting console in a very long time - at least since the PS4, hem hem - stock issues have meant that many eager PlayStation fans haven’t been able to get their hands on one.

    How To Pre-order A PS5 - The Ultimate Guide

    If you’ve been keeping up with gaming news recently, you may have seen that pre-ordering a PlayStation 5 has been proving pretty difficult. Part of this is due to the fact that Sony activated PS5 pre-orders before it should have, thus leading to a lot of confusion among consumers.

    Analyst Predicts PS5 Will Outsell Xbox Series X And Series S Combined

    Since the PlayStation 5 was announced, we’ve had nothing but faith that it will massively outsell Microsoft’s offering. After all, with Microsoft leaning hard into PC gaming as part of its strategy and dividing its player base with two separate models (and there are rumours of a third) - each of which has different specs - it’s hard to imagine Microsoft taking the crown. Now, however, our conjecture has statistics to back it up. Surveys…
