Gaming enthusiasts couldn’t be any more excited for the release of the PlayStation 5.
Sony’s new console hasn’t been given a release date just yet, although it’s hinted that it will come out some time in November, but we already know what to expect.
The launch event in June disclosed the console’s visuals and specifications.
The look has gone down very well with gamers and with a high-speed SSD, it will be extremely quick.
There’s no doubt that you’re already planning the games you will buy for the PS5, if you’re thinking of getting it, and some of the trailers that Sony revealed in June looked incredible.
Excitement is ramping and the release of the first PS5 advert has only served to heighten that.
PlayStation dropped the advert on Thursday afternoon and they've certainly focused on emphasising the immersive feel of the PS5.
That will likely be provided by the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, as well as the PS5’s 3D audio.

Surely a release date is imminent?
The economic uncertainty suggests that this might not be a great time to be releasing a new console, but PlayStation chief executive Jim Ryan is confident that Sony have got it right.
"Conventional wisdom and history show that our business is one of the more recession-proof businesses," he told BBC.
"But I think this will sharpen our need to ensure that we focus on getting the value equation right. And I emphasise value as opposed to price.
"We must be more attentive than ever before to ensure that the overall value proposition in terms of the console and the games - the range of games, the quality of games, the quantity of games - makes this something that our community aspires towards."
