We’ve got the latest info. The exclusive games on each console. The launch date. And we now know how much both consoles will cost.
So the burning question right now when it comes to the eternal question of PS vs Xbox: Which console should you get?
If you were to compare the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles (along with their digital-only variants), there’s a lot of factors that you need to consider in order to decide which console is the best for you.
For one, the next-gen in the gaming scene revolves around processing power, speed, and equally immersive, eye-popping visuals to boot. And when it comes to the internal specs required to achieve the above, the Ps5 and Xbox Series X aren’t all that dissimilar — though Microsoft does appear to have the edge thus far.
Which Side of The Divide Are You On?
Certainly, with everything we know so far, the PS5 and Xbox Series X are quite similar. But make no mistake about it, they’re both fairly unique in their own right.
Both Sony and Microsoft’s efforts in ensuring the integration of SSD technology in the new generation consoles is a clear commitment in bringing deep backwards compatibility across their vast archives of games.
Along with that, both gaming giants have also been listening to feedback — resulting in a rather different approach when it comes to next-gen exclusivity which does bode well for the ever-present tribalism among fans. As such, first-party gaming content will be vital to find out which company will win the Console War of 2020.
This scenario is definitely made even more competitive with a myriad of new ways to play — from remote access to streaming. The hardware here becomes less important as compared to the gameplay experience offered especially when the two platforms are strikingly similar.
To that end, you have some healthy competition between the exclusive games released by both companies. For instance, from Halo: Infinite and Horizon: Forbidden West to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo to Fable and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, it seems like we already have a strong line up of exclusives on the table already.
