Now, with both PlayStation and Xbox's cards openly on the table for the world to see, we can compare the new consoles which are set to be released later this year.
PlayStation made their welcomed announcement last night regarding the PS5 and there appears to be a handful of differences between this console and the Xbox Series X.
Across the board, the new-generation PlayStation and Xbox share a number of similarities such as a near-identical 16 GB GDDRG RAM Memory and both possess Blu-ray Drives with 4K definition.
The most notable difference comes with memory bandwidth. The Xbox Series X has two options available, with 10 GB's at 560GB/s or 6 GB's at 336GB/s. Whereas the PlayStation 5 packs just 448GB/s, which means the new-generation Xbox reigns heavily superior within this sector.
Regarding the computer processing unit, which determines the overall processing speeds of the console, the Xbox narrowly edges this category also. Both consoles will include 8x Zen 2 Cores, but are at slightly varying speeds. The PlayStation 5 operates at 3.5 gigahertz while the Xbox Series X boasts 3.8 Ghz.
From an overall standpoint, it appears that the Xbox offers faster processing speeds alongside a greater amount of memory on the console. Nevertheless, following the ground-breaking announcement last night, PS5 fans could be treated to a better variety of quality games.
On PlayStation's stream, the video kickstarted with a number of games that are set to feature on the console with graphics like never before. These include Marvel's 'Spider-Man: Miles Morales', 'Gran Turismo 7', 'Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart' and 'Project Athia'.
In addition to this, a PS5-compatible version of 'Grand Theft Auto' will also make an appearance.
On the other hand, Xbox have only confirmed two games so far, which are 'Halo Infinite' and Senua's Saga 'Hellblade 2'.
With games, graphics and consoles at the ready, the competition between Xbox and PlayStation is hotter than ever, with both ready to be released within the holiday season of 2020.
