Which Next-Generation Gaming Console Should You Get?

Which Next-Generation Gaming Console Should You Get?

Both Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X are excellent gaming consoles but they have their pros and cons. Let’s break them down.

Most avid gamers knew where their allegiance sat in the PS5 vs Xbox Series X debate right away. But dropping hundreds of dollars on a new gaming system is a big decision and if you’re new to consoles or are thinking of upgrading, you might be wondering which one is worth your cash.

PS5 vs Xbox Series X: Specs
The differences between the PS5 and Xbox Series X are both minor and huge at the same time.

In terms of specs and hardware, they’re fairly similar. Here’s what you’re looking at:

PS5

CPU: 8-core 3.5 GHz AMD Zen 2
GPU: 10.3 teraflop AMD RDNA 2
RAM: 16 GB
Storage: 825 GB SSD
Resolution: Up to 8K and 120 FPS
4K UHD Blu-Ray player(Standard model only)
Xbox Series X

CPU: 8-core, 3.8 GHz AMD Zen 2
GPU: 12.0 teraflop AMD RDNA 2
RAM: 16 GB
Storage: 1 TB SSD
Resolution: Up to 8K and 120 FPS
4K UHD Blu-Ray player
When it comes to specs, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are very similar, but the Series X has the slight advantage of more horsepower and a larger hard drive.

Some of the defining features of both consoles include their quick load times thanks to SSD drives, high resolutions and frame rates and chunky designs.

One main point of difference between the two is the PS5’s fancy new DualSense controller, which brings a new layer of immersion via haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. Models

Both Sony and Microsoft’s flagship consoles also come in different models. The PS5 Digital Edition features the same specs as the standard model with the exclusion of a disc drive. This means you won’t be able to purchase games digitally or use your console for watching DVDs.

On the Xbox side, users can also choose to go for an Xbox Series S which is a smaller console in both size and specs. The Series S has a 4 teraflop GPU with only 10 GB of RAM and an SSD of 512 GB. It can also only output at 1440p at 60Hz so doesn’t quite get the top-notch resolutions of its big brother. PS5 vs Xbox Series X: Games

Games are probably going to be the determining factor when choosing between a PS5 and Xbox Series X. For starters, the good news is that both consoles are backwards compatible. For PS5, this means you’ll be able to play PS4 games on your new console but that doesn’t apply to any older PlayStation generations. All PS4 games are compatible with PS5 apart from those on this list.

For the Xbox Series X/S both consoles are backwards compatible with Xbox games from original, 360 and Xbox One generations. When it comes to next-generation games, there’s a lot on offer for PS5 and Xbox Series X players. Here are some that are on offer now or will be releasing soon.
