Still haven’t had the chance to secure a preorder? You need not worry as the PlayStation 5 simulator takes in place of action for fans who are still missing out on the real deal due to the scarcity of supplies.
Alex Grade, a video game developer, couldn’t afford to purchase a brand new PlayStation 5 but even if he can come up with the money, Sony’s next-gen console is sold out everywhere or even if he can find one, he would be dealing with scalpers asking for four times the price of the console.
Rather than losing an unreasonable amount of money, Grade came up with an impressive alternative. He developed a simulator that gives the user the excitement of unboxing and setting up a PlayStation 5 without actually having to spend a dime.
In an interview Grade revealed:
“We all think that the new console has surpassed the demand and the supply was extremely short. We have witnessed a lot of people choosing the same console for a lot of reasons, but we are not too sure about the supply in charge of these consoles.”
“A new round of action has taken place from the team, and we are about to see a better supply in the market, which can help every player get the console of their dreams. We are working towards the same.”
The simulator comes complete with physics and includes information such as starting the PlayStation 5 and handling package fabric. Grade says the project took them over a week to finish. There are also various simulation games that the user can finish while playing on the simulator. However, the more significant experience will be the ability to get the actual console.
The war of the next-gen consoles has begun and the demand for these machines is certainly on a surge. A lot of fans are still waiting for their chance to preorder their console of preference from their favorite retailers.
As Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are fast approaching, retailers are again witnessing a constant rise in demand for the next-gen consoles. However, the supply appears to still be scarce and more output is required from both Microsoft and Sony in order to cater to everyone’s needs.
