Officially released on December 11, 2020, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) quickly fell into a situation of ‘supply insufficient demand’. In the context of the global supply chain affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, the number of PS5s is Factory does not meet the great demand of gamers in the world.
In Vietnam, gamers have to wait until March 2021 to order and experience a genuine PS5 provided by Sony. However, the number of devices imported to Vietnam is too small and quickly ‘sold out’ after only about 1 minute of selling.
The version imported by Sony to Vietnam has code CFI-1018A 01 exclusively for the Asian market (except Japan), made in China. With the price of 14.5 million dong, genuine PS5 is about 6-7 million dong cheaper than portable products.
Notably, when buying PlayStation 5 through Sony’s designated resellers, customers are ‘obligated’ to buy an additional Dual Sense controller (priced at VND2 million) and 3 game discs. In case you do not want to buy more controllers, you are forced to buy up to 5 more game discs.
With the selling price of about 2 million VND / genuine game disc, you will have to spend 8-10 million VND more, besides the money spent to buy the machine. Many users have expressed annoyance and confirmed that this is a form of ‘selling beer with peanuts’, forcing customers to spend more money.
Similar to previous PS versions, the machine comes with a wireless handle, with accessories such as a USB-C cable, HDMI cable, and power cord. Sony also provides a stand available, allowing users to mount the PS5 in a vertical or horizontal position when placed on a cabinet.
The PS5 has a fairly modern “appearance”, with a white, slightly curved exterior wrapped around a black “box” in the middle. The PS5’s size is also especially large compared to previous Sony consoles like the PS4.
If the previous generations of Sony consoles often had 2 separate black and white tones (and versions), with PlayStation 5 alone, this console model only had a version with a combination of black and white tones. Worth mentioning, this white rough crust is quite easy to get dirty, even yellow after a period of use.

The PS5 is equipped with a very fast SSD with a capacity of about 825GB. However, the actual capacity that the user can use to install the game is only 667.2 GB, because the machine’s operating system has occupied a portion of the space. With the current game sizes ranging from 70-100GB, users can install about 8 titles at the same time.
Although equipped with a ‘super fast’ SSD, the time to install games from the PS5’s disc is still relatively long due to the slow reading speed of the Blu-Ray drive. Specifically, when installing Demons’ Souls – a game with a capacity of about 30GB, users will have to wait up to 20 minutes.
Besides buying PS5 discs, users can also purchase digital games from the PlayStation Store. Thanks to backwards compatibility, you can experience 99% of the PS4’s library of games right on your PS5, with enhanced performance and resolution. Notably, the stutter and lag on the PS4’s menu screen almost do not appear in the PS5, all thanks to the high-speed SSD.
PS5 also comes pre-installed with a completely free game called Astro’s Playroom. This is a game of the platform genre (game going), acts as a demo for users to get acquainted with the new features appearing on the Dual Sense controller.
Compared to the PS4’s Dual Shock 4 gamepad model, the Dual Sense controller introduces a new feature called Adaptive Triggers, which will automatically adjust the bounce of the trigger buttons L2 and R2, depending on the game’s manipulation. play.
Meanwhile, the Haptic Feedback feature will provide unique vibrations depending on the situation of the game. For example, the handle will vibrate slightly when you walk in the sand, or vibrate harder when you are hit.
In the context that Sony Vietnam has not yet published information on the next genuine PS5 order, users can still order a ‘portable’ version at some gaming equipment stores, with prices around 20-24 million VND depending on the version. Of course, in case of missing out on the chance to order PS5, Vietnamese users do not necessarily need to hunt for this console at all costs, according to the personal opinion of the writer.
Specifically, if you own a PS4 or PS4 Pro, the nextgen console models like PS5 (and Xbox Series X) at the moment are not attractive enough, when the number of games is optimized exclusively for the hardware of the system. This machine is still quite meager and lacking in variety. In addition, PS5 still has some software bugs, making the user experience not really complete.
In other words, users should wait a few more months until the PS5 supply becomes more stable, helping to stabilize the price of this console. This will also be the time when the exclusive PS5 blockbuster titles like God of War Ragnarok come out, thereby bringing more options to experience for users.
