The contest between consoles and gaming PC is waged on many fronts and one of the things that consoles always boast of, and something that Valve's Steam Machine practically conceded, is being a dedicated gaming machine. You start it up and are immediately dumped into a gaming hub, no fussing with an operating system or dealing with notifications from this or that software.

PlayStation 5 box art is thankfully and disappointingly normal

The formal revelation of the PlayStation 5 console has had fans and the Internet split over its design. The most neutral way to describe the box, if you can even call it a box, is that it's different. Because of that, there have been some concerns that physical copies of games, which will still come in good old-fashioned circular disc form, will come in some outlandish packaging.
