PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S Join Time’s ‘Best Inventions of 2020’ List


Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series S have only just released but they’ve already joined Time’s list of “The Best Inventions of 2020.”

According to the publication, the PS5’s “small advancements” combine to create a “revolutionary” gaming experience for its users. The DualSense controller and Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales also got a nod from Time. A brief paragraph explaining PS5’s inclusion in the list reads:

PB = PB || {};
PB.gptStandAlone = PB.gptStandAlone || {};
PB.gptAutoRefresh = PB.gptAutoRefresh || {‘gptAds’:[], ‘gptStandAlone’:[]};
admiralCookie = readAdmiralCookie();

googletag.cmd.push(function() {
var standAloneSizeMapping = googletag.sizeMapping().addSize([0, 0], []).addSize([750, 0], [[300, 250]]).addSize([980, 0], [[300, 250]]).build(); PB.gptStandAlone[‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1605982981’] = googletag.defineSlot(‘/4403/cr/playstationlifestyle/ros’, [[300, 250]], ‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1605982981’)
.defineSizeMapping(standAloneSizeMapping) .addService(googletag.pubads())
.setTargeting(‘pos’, ‘P’).setTargeting(‘content_detail’, ‘0’).setTargeting(‘kw’, ‘in-article’).setTargeting(‘coppa’, ‘0’).setTargeting(‘site’, ‘playstationlifestyle’);
googletag.enableServices();
googletag.display(‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1605982981’);

if (admiralCookie === null || admiralCookie[‘val’] === ‘false’) {
googletag.pubads().refresh([PB.gptStandAlone[‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1605982981’]]);
}

});

PB = PB || {};
gptAds = PB.gptAds || {};
var opts = {“asBool”:false,”adUnit”:”/4403/cr/playstationlifestyle/ros”,”adDiv”:”pb_prebidjs_300x250_a”,”sizeStr”:”[[300, 250]]”,”mapping”:[{“viewport”:”[0, 0]”,”sizes”:”[[300, 250]]”},{“viewport”:”[750, 0]”,”sizes”:”[]”},{“viewport”:”[980, 0]”,”sizes”:”[]”}],”targeting”:{“pos”:”A”,”content_detail”:”0″,”kw”:”in-article-mobile”,”coppa”:”0″,”site”:”playstationlifestyle”},”resize”:false,”autoRefresh”:false};
PB.waitForAS = (opts.asBool) ? true : PB.waitForAS || false;
admiralCookie = readAdmiralCookie();

if (admiralCookie === null || admiralCookie[‘val’] === ‘false’) {
PB.evGPTBuilder.enqueueAd(opts);
}

Sony’s new gaming console is all about small advancements that combine to create a revolutionary experience. At more than a foot tall and weighing in at just under 10 lb., the PlayStation 5 is among the largest video-game consoles ever made—Sony needed the room to support visually spectacular titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Games load almost instantaneously, thanks to a solid-state hard drive. The graphics processor is almost 10 times faster than that of the PS 4, which allows for beautiful visuals, and a new controller is full of haptic feedback sensors that add a new dimension to play. When a character walks on sand, players feel the grit in the controller; when Spider-Man grips a subway car, players feel the train’s rumble. Add it up, and it just may be the most powerful video-game console we’ve ever seen.

Interestingly, it was the cheaper Xbox Series S that made into the list rather than the more powerful, premium Series X. Time’s Matthew Gault believes that Series S has the capability to become “the Netflix of video games” with Xbox Game Pass as a “secret weapon.”
