PlayStation 5 Console Unboxing — Can I Play That?

Review unit provided courtesy of Sony Interactive Entertainment. This story starts with our hero (EIC, whatever) fearing they are about to be arrested. 7:50 AM, there’s a knock on the door. The dog starts barking her head off. Moments before, a police car with lights and sirens pulled up in front of my apartment building. […]
