Soccer Player Got PS5 Early, Or At Least The Controller
One of Bayern Munich's star players seems to be kicking it back with Sony's next-gen console.
If you've managed to secure an order for a PlayStation 5 you still have a few more weeks to wait for the next generation of gaming from Sony. But if you happened to be a famous soccer player, you could have your hands on it right now.
That's the case for Polish international and Bayern Munich player Robert Lewandowski, who has shared a photo on Instagram showing himself kicking back with a DualSense controller. The PS5 isn't shown in either shot in the post, but a close-up of the controller makes it look like the real deal. And with just a handful of weeks until launch, it's easy to assume he's just been lucky enough to get some early access. Now that some of us have also received the console and placed it next to a banana and an egg, that's probably what happened. Perhaps he started with Demon's Souls?
Even though Sony has not sent consoles to journalists yet, Microsoft sent numerous Xbox Series X consoles to media outlets nearly a full month ago. It's given us a comprehensive look at the console ahead of its launch next month--our final Xbox Series X preview provides a look at load times, backwards compatibility, and more.
Sony has been revealing more details about the PS5 the closer to launch we get, including the first look at the console's overhauled UI, information on which games won't be backwards-compatible, and what streaming services you can expect on the console at launch. The PS5 launches on November 12, with Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, and more.
