The latest hardware allows the user to experience mind-blowing graphics, thanks to the technical benefits of the latest technologies available in the industry, such as 4k, HDR, ray tracing, and a frame rate of up to 120 FPS. In addition, thanks to the power of the state-of-the-art SSD, the console ensures essentially nonexistent wait times, granting the user to immediately immerse himself in the action. The real standout feature of the PlayStation 5, however, is the new controller-the DualSense-thanks to which the user will have the opportunity to enjoy an innovative sensory experience, made unique by haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, which will enable the user to perceive video games as never before. Finally, PlaySation 5 will allow users to experience a new way of perceiving sounds through 3D audio, which will transport them to incredibly immersive soundscapes.
