About PlayStation 5
The PlayStation 5 is the latest and greatest video game console from Sony, competing directly against the Xbox Series X. Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it's poised to profoundly change the gaming landscape in the years to come. Crucially, it's also backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 software, which means the majority of your old games will work on the new system.
The PS5 has been notoriously difficult to buy due to ongoing supply shortages. If you see one in the wild and a reasonable price you should snap it up without delay.
About FIFA 23
FIFA 23 will have 3 distinct editions across different consoles. Nintendo Switch users will play the Legacy Edition, which is essentially a reskin of the FIFA 22 Legacy Edition "without any new development or significant enhancements". However, it will feature new stadiums, upscaled visuals and women's club football.
The standard edition of FIFA 23 will be playable on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pick up this version of the game and you can expect the usual generational jump in FIFA games, with expansive World Cup modes on the men's and women's sides and refreshed gameplay when it comes to shooting, free kicks, corners, physics and more.
It's the Mbappé Edition, available on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PlayStation 5, that really takes things up a notch. This version of the game utilises HyperMotion2 to unlock new features and add over 6,000 authentic animations. This is possible because HyperMotion 2 technology analyses twice as much real-life gameplay as previous versions of the technology
Paris-Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappé returns to adorn the cover of FIFA 23, completing a hat-trick of visual representation for the 23-year-old French phenom.
