PlayStation 5 vs Xbox Series X: 80% of gamers plan to purchase PS5 over Series X


The unveiling of the PlayStation 5 this week has left gamers with a decision to make.

Do they opt for the Sony console or Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, which was unveiled last year?

The PlayStation launch showcased a series of games that will be playable on the new console, including Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’, ‘Gran Turismo 7’, ‘Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart’ and ‘Project Athia’.

In addition, a PS5-compatible version of Grand Theft Auto V will be available.

Xbox, meanwhile, have only confirmed two games – ‘Halo Infinite’ and Senua’s Saga ‘Hellblade 2’.

From a specifications standpoint, the new consoles shares some similarities, including near-identical 16GB GDDRG RAM Memory and Blu-ray Drives with 4K definition.

The Xbox has better memory bandwidth and CPU, though.

However, it seems the PlayStation 5 will prove to be the more popular option with 80% of gamers in a GIVEMESPORT poll saying they will purchase a PS5 over a Series X.

That’s an overwhelming success for the Sony console.


Sony are yet to announce the price of the PlayStation 5, but reveal that analysts are predicting it to cost $499 / £449 / AU$749.

With a release date in the 2020 holiday period, the PS5 will no doubt be a popular presence under Christmas trees later on in the year.

The controller features haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, motion sensors, a built-in microphone, in integrated speaker, a headset jack and USB port.
