Amid our pandemic, the console war is igniting!

Yup, Sony is set to answer the digital foundry Xbox series X reveal with a Mark Cerny reveal on the PS5 specs tomorrow!

It was the GDC presentation that was cancelled, so it's very technical.

In short it's more custom made than Xbox. Wether it will result in the same, worse or better performance than the Xbox i can't tell. Hopefully we will see a digital foundry video soon.

blah to specs, they will both get around the same games anyways. Only the exclusives will be the thing that matters to these consoles and will take the most advantage out of them.

This gives a more down to earth explanation and they compare it to the Xbox X.

It sounds really good and the memes were retarded. It's looking like a great system. Apparently loads will be faster than in the X, they came up with a more costumer friendly SSD solution, they are innovating with sound trying to give it a surround vibe without actual surround. It sounds exciting. It has less teraflops, but apparently computations alone don't give a clear picture. This just looks like a very customized and optimized system where Xbox X seems to be more factory model with slightly higher specs. I think in the end they are gonna be close very close to each other and features like the shorter load times and better sound might be what differentiates the PS5. The X seems to be more like a PC in a box, but maybe those extra teraflops translated in slightly better fps? Not really sure what it means.
But this was only the hardware. We will see what they bring when we see software features, controllers and games.

This side by side comparison answers all, except the price -- assume PS5 is $399, XBSX probably going for $450 or $499?

I'll probably only be able to justify buying one console this year and since I already got gamepass that makes it easy for me to get the xbox.

Althoooough they said they won't have any xboxsex exclusives for a year so in theory I could play everything on my xbone and get the ps5. Hmmm. Got some thinking to do.

Well, i personally value FPS and loading screens, so both look good. But, at the end of the day, i know the Xbox will tank in Japan and the JRPG support is garanteed on the PS5.

First party titles i'd say Sony is more interesting than Microsoft for me. Not a whole of a lot more, but i can definitely go for more God of War, but can't care less about Halo's or gears. There's plenty of multiplayer games, so sony commiting to single player story driven games are a plus to me. That is why i chose the PS5. Though, if it were an ideal world where all games went to both consoles, i would probably ponder the Xbox. It really depends on what those extra teraflops will give. If all games are already 60fps and Xbox maybe runs them at 70. Well, i don't really care. 60fps is all i need. But if it's ps5 running at 50 and Xbox at 60 then i will be miffed. But, the games situation trumps these details.

Been playing more and more on my pc lately since the RX 5700 XT upgrade and tbh, I'll probably just keep chuggin along on it. Never did get a PS4 and still play my XB1 occasionally.
