The PlayStation 5, otherwise abbreviated as PS5, is a video game console developed and distributed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is the fifth main home console in the PlayStation family of systems and the successor to the PlayStation 4 (PS4), initially launching worldwide in November 2020. It primarily competes with Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Series S consoles as part of the ninth generation of video game hardware.

As with the preceding PS4, the PS5 is capable of displaying high-definition graphics, while additionally supporting native 4K (3840x2160) resolution output unlike the supersampled solution on PlayStation 4 Pro. Its social media integration has been significantly improved with the revised "Create" feature succeeding the "Share" function on PS4, allowing users to not just capture photos and video of gameplay, but edit together clips using built-in software. It supports backwards compatibility with the vast majority of PlayStation 4 titles in addition to the previous console's peripherals and external hardware, in addition to having its own native library of games and exclusive accessories such as the PlayStation VR2 headset.

At launch, the PS5 was available with two configurations. The standard model came equipped with a Blu-Ray drive for supporting physical media such as disc-based games and movies, while a separate PlayStation 5 Digital Edition omitted the disc drive, thus limiting users to games purchased and downloaded directly from the PlayStation Store, as well as other media available on streaming services the console supports. A pair of redesigned PlayStation 5 models were introduced in November 2023, sporting a slimmer frame and segmented faceplates. The latter design change enabled either SKU to become moddable with a standalone disc drive attachment that would allow the revised Digital Edition models to support disc-based media, and vice versa for the disc-drive equipped PS5 model being able to be modded with a slimmer faceplate sans the drive attachment.

Avatars[]

The PlayStation 5 carries over the ability for users to select their own personal avatar and attach it to their PlayStation Network (PSN) profile for display on their account and console services, as with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. These avatars can either be purchased directly from the PlayStation Store, or earned/unlocked by completing game objectives or as part of promotions for specific titles. Select avatars from PS4 are retained on the new console in addition to an assortment of personal avatars specifically tied to PS5-specific games.

Below is a list of Final Fantasy video games where players are able to obtain avatars on the PlayStation 5:

PlayStation Plus[]

The PS5 introduced an overhaul to the existing PlayStation Plus program, separating the subscriber benefits into three distinct tiers. The basic PlayStation Plus Essential tier remains unchanged from the previous Plus subscription, enabling basic online functionality in compatible games, cloud saves and a selection of free PS4 and PS5 games to claim each month. The mid-tier subscription, PlayStation Plus Extra, carries over the benefits of Essential while adding a back-catalogue of over 400 downloadable PS4 and PS5 titles from both PlayStation Studios and third-party developers. The most expensive, PlayStation Plus Premium tier, adds an additional "Classics Catalog" of over 340 legacy titles from across the original PlayStation (PS1), PlayStation 2 (PS2) and PlayStation Portable (PSP) for download, as well as PlayStation 3 (PS3) games available to stream via the cloud as was possible with the previously separate PlayStation Now service.[1] An option to cloud-stream native PlayStation 5 games from the PS Plus Games Catalog, was added to the Premium tier in October 2023.

The following Final Fantasy titles are available to download or stream via PS Plus as of December 2023:
