Here’s my guess for the ps5.
Sony will launch at $399 to steal the lower end customers from Microsoft with them launching at $499-$599. It will be twice the power of the ps4 pro but will be weaker then the Xbox series x.
Microsoft will throw around the most advanced highest power console ever and Sony is ok with that due to the price being cheaper they will sell way more units then Microsoft at launch and over the life span of the system.
Sony has better exclusives so I’m buying it on launch day. I could care less about it being weaker. If we get 4k 60fps I’ll be happy. Most people have shit 4K TVs that can’t take advantage of over 60fps anyways.
Microsoft will try to push 8k this and 8k that knowing damn well the system can’t push it. Since they advertise with Samsung they will try to push the new TVs out that the common person can’t afford. Microsoft is gonna go full on Apple with this console launch. I could care less about 8k, the whole Netflix library isn’t in 4K yet and 8k is gonna take forever to reach the point that 4K is at now.
I could also see Microsoft launch a console without a disc drive that’s weaker (same as ps5) for the same price as the ps5.
It’s all a waiting game and this is what I think is gonna happen. We’ll all find out soon enough tho.
I will say I’m very happy to see the consoles getting a good cpu and not some shit laptop cpu like the current gen has now. I mainly play on pc but I have a ps4 pro and a Xbox one s in the house that gets used everyday.
My only bias here is the ps exclusives. I play the show everyday which is coming to Xbox, they already announced that but the last of us, uncharted and god of war keep me with Sony. Could care less for gears, halo hasn’t been the same since 3, state of decay I don’t like and forza is boring compared to asseto Corsa with a VR headset on pc.
