Filed under products I never knew existed and would probably be fine if that were still the case, Firebox is selling an officially licensed Playstation 5 Alarm Clock, which looks like a PS5 controller atop a charging dock. It’s not a functional controller, though, just a functional alarm clock. Do people still use those things? I just assumed everybody used their phones.
Previously seen in a PS4 version, the USB-powered clock features a backlit LED display, and the D-pad and controller buttons are used to set the alarm. That’s cool, but what’s the alarm sound like? I feel like that’s one of the most important features of any alarm clock, but they never include that information in the product description. Is it a blaring BEEP BEEP BEEP that’ll make me wish I were dead, or the Playstation startup sound that’s too calming to even wake me up? My guess is the former.
Admittedly, you’d have to be one heck of a Playstation fan to buy a PS5 controller alarm clock. I mean, I’m ranked #2,344 in the entire world, and even I would have a hard time putting this by the side of the bed, and that’s not even taking into consideration my wife’s strong opinions!
