PS5 Vs Xbox Series X (core differences) – What will you choose? fast loading or high resolution?

Sony PS5 & Xbox Series X

Tomorrow morning, Sony will hold a press conference where it will unveil some information about the PS5. Relative to the Xbox Series X, PS5 has more unresolved suspense. Today, we will succinctly look at the core difference between both consoles from what we know. A few days ago, developer Thomas Mahler once again revealed the major experience difference between the two consoles.

Going straight to the point, in terms of experience, there is one clear difference between both consoles. Simply put, the PS5’s game loading speed will be better than others. However, the Xbox Series X’s ability to maintain a high frame rate of 4K is far better. The loading speed of PS5 can even be twice as fast as XSX. In fact, this is reflected in the SSD performance data previously announced, up to 5.5GB/s (compressed data speed up to 9GB/s). This is 2.4 times faster than XSX.

However, Mahler believes that the three-party developers will not necessarily squeeze 100% of the SSD’s SSD value. It is likely that there will be obvious differences between different works. From this perspective, the comprehensive performance of XSX will have advantages.

PS5 price leaks on Amazon

Recently, Amazon in the UK suddenly launched a landing page for the Sony PS5. The weird thing about the landing page is that it comes with a price tag. The Amazon UK page shows that this console will sell for £599 ($759). It’s interesting because this price falls within the speculations. According to previous reports, the Sony PS5 can sell for anything between $400 – $800. The £599 ($759) price tag seems accurate and reasonable. Thus, netizens can not help but believe that this could be the PS5 real pricing.

As convincing as the information is, we will advise that you take it with a pinch of salt. This is because there is no official confirmation of the price. Secondly, the page was quickly taken down by Amazon but not before fans got a screenshot. Thirdly, the PS5 hard drive on the Amazon page starts at 825GB instead of 1T. These are some discrepancies that do not conform to what we will expect from an official landing page.
