Everything goes more or less as expected. November 20 was a day that could have been a busy month for the next console launch, and now Microsoft has confirmed the month (but not the day, until now). This is in line with the company’s release, as all but one of its ants were released this month:
- Xbox: November 15, 2001.
- Xbox 360: November 22, 2005.
- Xbox One: November 22, 2013.
- Xbox One S: August 2, 2016.
- Xbox One X: November 7, 2017.
The launch of the Xbox Series X in November, what about SONY?
We have long noticed that ISONY and Microsoft seem to be struggling to figure out who is announcing their console first, because depending on what someone else is doing, someone else may respond in some way. At the moment, it looks like no one has a first date of transparency and not a price, which will be as important as the next generation of consolation sales motivation.
Microsoft has now taken the lead in announcing the month when they will launch the Xbox Series X. That they have said so and not yet confirmed the exact date seems like a kind of “threat” to see if SonY reacts in any way, perhaps waiting for the Japanese now to lead and announce the PS5 launch. It is expected to happen in November, but the date is yet to be determined.
November 20 is very popular with both companies, perhaps with the custom (which we already showed you when all the Microsoft comforts were posted) and the rest of the view the Chr istmas campaign
For example, suppose SONY takes the initiative and announces the PS5 of November 20 for the price of 599 euros, 499 euros for Digital Edition. If so, Microsoft would have had time to announce its coupon last week, November 13 (Friday 13th, in addition) and could change its price, for example to open it at 499 or 449 euros to make it attractive on the face. to users. We mentioned earlier that, in addition, Microsoft has a greater ability than SONY to lower its console price and consider losses when selling Hardware, so this will be a major pressure point for both companies.
Which of the two will take the first step is still unknown, but there is no doubt that time is running out and the start date is approaching for both companies, so somewhere or somewhere You will both have to take the first step and make an official announcement of the date and price directly.
Hardware, an important incentive
Finally we talked about computer hardware and especially the new technology that will be introduced by this new generation of consoles under its arm, such as Xbox Velocity on Microsoft computer or custom SSD on PS5. The fact is that in technology The Xbox Series X is higher than SONY’s PS5, while the SONY console has other performance technologies that can reduce this inefficiency to provide the same functionality as the Microsoft console.
The problem is that these extensions look like we will only see them in special PS5 games and that they are only designed for this console, use all the help they can, but in most games platforms (they come with both comfort and even PC) lack this increase, and some developers have said they have problems ability to donate a performance over 60 FPS with 1080p resolution on PS5.
