This month saw the release of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and Series S. These join the Nintendo Switch as the main video game consoles of this new generation (the ninth one since the first consoles were released in the market back in 1975) that promise 4K gaming at up to 120 frames per second, ray tracing and faster loading speeds than its predecessors. Both Sony and Microsoft proud themselves for their brand new next gen consoles, and both claim to be the best in performance and overall gaming experience:
- Price: Both the Xbox Series X and the PS5 cost $499, while the Series S is priced at $299 and the PS5 Digital Edition costs $399. The latter 2 lack an optical drive to read discs, and the Series S’ SSD is half as large as the Series X.
- Backward compatibility: Both consoles offer almost all of their previous gen games on their gaming catalog, even though the Xbox Series X has an edge: With the same backward compatibility the Xbox One offered for Xbox 360 and original Xbox games.
- Performance: Next generation consoles are always judged by their power, speed and visual fidelity levels. Both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X & Series S have similar features in this sense, and it’s very difficult to declare a winner.
- Design: The PS5 is a towering machine, and is the biggest console Sony has ever built, while the Xbox Series X looks more like the design of gaming PCs thanks to its cuboid shape.
While both the PS5 and Xbox Series X & Series S are very powerful new consoles competing for the same market, they are both excellent options that offer 10-12 TFLOPS of graphical power and all of the load-time benefits that come from SSDs.
