After the PS5 is already available in some regions, players can look forward to the launch of the console in Germany this week. However, only those who were able to grab a model in advance will receive a copy at the release. Sony has already confirmed that there will be no retail sales at launch. In the next few weeks, however, more and more supplies are planned.

Now the published PS5 simulator by hobby developer Alex Grade is supposed to shorten the waiting time. With the free game, fans can experience in advance what the construction of the PS5 feels like. In the virtual environment you first have to unpack the package with the console and then connect all cables correctly and make settings. You can currently see the title on the website by Alex Grade download.
