Both Xbox Series X and PS5 are launching this week, and that means anticipation has reached a fever pitch.

The Series X is now released and it is just a few days until the PS5 now.


With the PS5 coming, this may be your first try at Sony's console, as it appears to be the console of choice.

With so much to take in, there are some handy tips you should read up on before diving into the system.

Here's how to connect the system to a display! 



Now, this may seem like a pretty simple topic.

But, it is better to be safe than sorry when handling these new consoles.


You do not want to mess this up, as you may break one of the outputs on the console or your monitor/TV.

Sony has posted a blog post noting some of the basic principles for the PS5.

One of these notes how to connect it to a display.

Here's what they had to say: 

  1. Insert one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI OUT port on the rear of the PS5. 
  2. Insert the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI input on your display device. 
  3. Insert the power cable into the AC IN connector on the rear of the PS5. 
  4. Safely insert the power plug into a mains electrical outlet.

This should satisfy most displays, but be sure the cable is secure before you begin playing.

Let us know what games you are checking out on the PS5 on launch day!
