Knock-Off $25 PS5 Is About As Good As You'd Expect

The PlayStation 5 shortage is still in action. Still. It seems bizarre that such shortages exist when the demand is so impossibly high for new-gen consoles, but still truly in the thick of it, while players have to join lotteries and queues to even earn the chance to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X.

So, players are having to make do. Thankfully a lot of games are available on the console prior - but gamers still want to upgrade regardless. There's a cost-effective way to do so - and it's about as much value as the price implies.

What Is The GameStation 5?

Finally, the next console to be accidentally bought by a well-meaning grandparent. The GameStation 5 has finally landed on the market, and good lord it's rough. The bootleg console doesn't seem to make any effort to replicate anything by PlayStation in anything but its design.

Although the GameStation 5 holds a whole host of recognisable games, they're not exactly recognisable for being PlayStation's wheelhouse. A new video from YouTube channel SpawnWave has exposed the system to players.

It's a bizarre, plastic, mini replica of the PS5 with a wired controller that comes packed with Super Mario 3, Galaga, and a wealth of other classic games that the developers seemed to think they'd get away with shipping along with their console. To be fair, it seems like a solid emulation machine, yet it's a far cry from the PS5 fans are looking for.

 

What's Going On With PS5's Stock Problems?

Fans are still fighting to get their hands on new PlayStation consoles, but Sony is confident that change is on the horizon. A recent financial presentation saw Sony exec Jim Ryan suggest that the next year will see the console's stock match that of the PS4, and even overtake it the year after that.

Both the PS5 and Xbox Series have struggled thanks to the pandemic sticking a spanner in the works of the supply chain - this has even led to Sony keeping the PS4 around for a bit longer. Here's hoping things pick up soon when it comes to PS5 stocks, as otherwise, we'll be cursed to the GameStation for eternity.
