PlayStation 5 – level 2

18-11-2020 07:00

The Japanese company Sony made all PlayStation fans happy last week when it started to sell its new PlayStation 5.

The new console came seven years since Sony started to sell the PlayStation 4, which completely changed the world of video games. During the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a boom in video gaming and Sony hopes that the new PlayStation 5 will bring the company money for many years. The price of the PlayStation 5 is $500 which is the same price as Microsoft’s Xbox that Microsoft started to sell this month, too.

Experts compared the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox. They say that the PlayStation 5 has a more impressive controller which makes different vibrations. On the other hand, the design of the new Xbox is more attractive.

Difficult words: console (a device that people play video games with), boom (a very big increase), gaming (the activity when people play games), impressive (something that people like because of its size or quality), vibration (a shaking feeling).
