The launch of the PS5 is very close now, just one week away, and so you may already have visions of Spider-Mans and Bugsnax dancing in your head. If you’re curious about how to fine-tune your new hardware, though, Sony is here to help with a new video going over some of the finer points of the system settings.
The brief explainer video walks you through how to tweak the settings for 3D audio, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, and power-saving in rest mode. It’s all very snappy and easy to understand, but seeing it laid out may give you a better idea of exactly what to expect.
The haptic feedback and adaptive trigger settings can be made less strong if you find they’re too much to handle. The power setting is set to “Optimized Experience” by default, which gives you some handy features like remote power-on and auto-updates, but it uses more power. A “Low Power Use” setting turns off those features but runs at much lower power in rest mode, or you can customize some mixture of both. The 3D audio might require the most experimentation, as Sony notes that you may need to try the settings to see which one matches your ear level.
