Nashville, TN - Local dad Jeremy Carter not only spent weeks searching for a Playstation 5 for his son, but he also selflessly insisted on testing it for an entire week before Christmas.
Carter told reporters, "I refuse to let my son open the box and be heartbroken if it doesn't work. So, I'm going to spend every waking moment thoroughly testing it to ensure he isn't disappointed this Christmas."
Carter reportedly went even further by calling off work for the week and converting a basement storage room into a testing lab.
So far, the system has worked fine, but Carter says there is still work to do.
"I'm now pretty confident that single-player games are going to run just fine, but I'm not sure about the unit's multi-player performance."
To assist with the research, Carter recruited a college friend to help him test the second controller. To accurately simulate real-world conditions, the dedicated researchers ordered pizza and age-appropriate beverages.
At the time of this posting, the system has performed flawlessly. Carter says he is on track to surprise his son on December 25, or shortly after, if he needs more time for testing.
Jeremy's wife, Kelly Carter, denied our requests for comment.
