Title: PlayStation 5 Review Update: One Year Later

The PlayStation 5 has become Sony's fastest-selling games console ever, despite its scarcity in stores. The review acknowledges that while the launch lineup of games may not have been entirely exclusive to the PS5, the console still possesses power and speed to make it a real contender in the market. The UI and loading times are praised, but it is the DualSense controller that truly stands out, offering a unique and immersive gaming experience. The past year has seen some meaningful updates to the PS5, including the ability to add additional internal storage, addressing the initial criticisms regarding limited space. The process of installing an SSD is straightforward, and the flexibility of using off-the-shelf M2 drives provides more options compared to the Xbox Series X. However, the reviewer mentions that securing a PS5 is still a challenge due to ongoing shortages. Despite this, the PS5 library has grown impressively, with notable games released, and upcoming exclusives generate excitement for the future. Overall, the PlayStation 5 is considered a great console to own, with high ratings in all categories except for reliability/durability, which is given a medium rating due to the reviewer's personal experience with controller drift.
