PlayStation 5 vs. Project Scarlett: The battle of future video game consoles
It is confirmed. At the end of 2020, the Sony PlayStation 5 and the new Microsoft console Project Scarlett will compete for the market to earn a place in the list of Christmas gifts.
At the moment, both companies have shared a couple of details about their next consoles. Although there has been no talk of prices, nor detailed dates for its launch nor all the specifications are known.
By the time the launch occurs, Sony and Microsoft will also face several video game services in the cloud such as Google Stadia, Apple Arcade, and Nintendo Switch. So the challenge is great and they should offer a 360 experience to face a market in growth and transformation.
The PS5 will have a solid-state drive (SSD), which will increase the speed of installation and startup. It will have support for ultra-high-definition 4K images at 120Hz, which is twice the refresh rate that most televisions. Also, it will improve the haptic feedback of your controls (the trigger tension will be programmable).
The next Xbox console still has no release date, but it is known under the code name of Project Scarlett. What is confirmed is that it will arrive in late 2020 with Halo Infinite. And it will integrate an eight-core AMD processor, a solid-state drive (SSD) and will play video games in 8K at 120Hz.
Here are some specifications that have been leaked and others that brands have confirmed. However, there is still a year left before its launch. So it is very likely that there will be changes, so we will update this table as new information is confirmed.
