Open the PS5 case

First you need to get the PS5 out of its box which comes in a huge box. Much larger than its predecessors. The top cover contains the DualSense Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, the power cord, a USB Type-C cable for connecting the controller, and an HDMI cable.

You can also get the user manual and warranty card in the box. All PS5 owners will get a standard one-year warranty on the console and game console. Gently remove the main controller from the box and place it where you want to set up the device.

Find the perfect location

While setting up the PS5, be sure to choose a spot that won’t block the vents for your gaming console. Most people mistake it for places where the ventilation holes are clogged. Do not do it. Make sure to place the console where air can easily pass through because the PS5 has a cooling system inside that passes hot air out.

It is a powerful piece of hardware and the largest gaming console of its generation. You can place it horizontally as well as vertically. Sony also provides a docking station for the PS5 which can be used as a console stand and must be purchased separately. We recommend placing it vertically as it will take more space horizontally.

Set it up

Now comes the most important part. Set it up so you can start playing. First you need to connect the PS5 to a power source and then connect the console to the TV using the HDMI port. Once done, press the PS5’s power button. You will then need to select the correct HDMI input on your TV and then you will be greeted by the PS5 setup screen. To navigate the PS5’s user interface, you’ll need to connect the DualSense wireless controller.
