Both consoles include a single ps5 dual sense wireless controller, which features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback that help elevate the sense of realism in your games.
Both consoles can also play PS4 games, and an external hard drive can be purchased for additional storage to play these older titles. Nevertheless, You still can’t store or play PS5 games from external hard drives or SSDs.
Video games on PS5 and PS5 digital version:
Fortunately, this is the easy part. Aside from the fact that one plays from discs and the other is exclusively from the console’s internal storage system, PS5 and PS5 digital editions play the exact same PS5 games in exactly the same way.
With identical internal specs, you can enjoy 4K gaming at fast refresh rates on both the PS5 and its digital-only counterpart, and don’t expect to see differences in gameplay between the two.
Where things get a little negatives of one version against another is on the backwards compatibility front. As well, the digital edition of the console will play PS4 titles, but of course your existing record collection won’t be playable. Instead, the user will probably have to buy it digitally new.
It is difficult to make a call about financial matters: if the user is an avid gamer without the money to make the big leap to the top-tier PS5, it is better to go for the digital console. Next-gen gaming is sure to be a treat on that model too.
But, if the person can afford it, it is better to choose the standard disc-based PS5 console. That user will still be able to watch Blue-Ray movies, not to mention the potential money they’ll save over the years by trading disc-based games with their friends and at exchange stores.
