In the past few years, we’ve seen the launch of several new video game consoles, including the Xbox One S and the PlayStation 4 Slim. Now we’re getting ready for another wave of gaming consoles: the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox One X. But how will they compare to each other? Here are some things to consider when deciding which console to buy and when. We’ll also look at some of the classics, including the PS3 and the Xbox 360.
Despite the fact that the PlayStation 5 is a few years away, the game lineup for the next-generation console is already looking very exciting. While there are no specific release dates, a handful of 2022 video games have already been announced. Ratchet and Clank and Returnal are two games that felt like they were developed for the next-gen console.
Xbox One S
Microsoft has announced it is discontinuing the Xbox One S and Xbox One X in July 2020. The consoles would still be available in retail stores, though. The company said it would focus on its next-generation Xbox Series X/S consoles instead of producing the current-gen consoles.
PlayStation 4 Slim
The new PlayStation 4 Slim has the same dimensions as the original PlayStation 4, but it is lighter and smaller. Its overall design is similar to the original, with sloping angles and rounded edges. The only difference is that the buttons are now on the left side. It also has two USB ports, instead of one. Its hard drive is either 500GB or 1TB.
Xbox Series X
The Xbox Series S is the smallest console ever produced by the Xbox brand and comes with Xbox Velocity Architecture, a custom-SSD paired with integrated software to optimize load times and performance. The console can play 4K and 8K games at up to 120 frames per second. The Xbox Game Pass catalog is different for each region and varies with the console model.
Sony’s DualSense controller
With DualSense technology, gamers can feel the action and movements of their game in two different ways. The controller has built-in microphones and can sense movement in the player’s body. This technology can create a range of incredible sensations and make gaming more immersive. It’s up to developers to implement it in their games, but Sony first-party studios are expected to do so regularly.
Microsoft’s Xbox One X
The Xbox One X will have a higher-end processor than its predecessor, the Xbox Series S. This means that games on Xbox One will have better resolution and frame rates, and will feature more realistic graphics. In addition, the Xbox One X will offer variable refresh rates and better lighting effects.
