PS5 will most likely be backwards compatible with previous gen games

PlayStation 5 Will Reportedly Be 30 Percent Less Powerful Than Xbox Series X

It's the very beginning of the year - the flawless time to speculate what the next set of 12 months hold for the video game industry.

And Microsoft, which announced its new console last month, extended the backward compatibility support to its Xbox One X console. "As an industry that's growing so fast, we do think about price". Which comes down to internal testing documentation leaks that list the codename for the PS5's graphics chip as "Gonzalo" and the Xbox Series X's as "Arden". Piers Harding-Rolls made a set of predictions for 2019 with GamesIndustry.biz at this point past year too, getting just one of 11 expectations wrong. "I don't expect Sony to follow this product strategy at launch so this approach would give Xbox more go-to-market flexibility although it would also add complexity around marketing and consumer education". "Personally, I would wait to bring a cheaper version to market". Unless Sony releases the actual stats, then the Xbox will be considered the more powerful option as rough performance factors of the new models are known, while the PlayStation 5 is still a mystery. Which is around 9.2 teraflops of the PS5 versus the Xbox Series X's 12.2. These specs give Xbox Series X a massive edge over the PlayStation 5 if it pans out later.


With a rumoured February event set to unveil the PlayStation 5 in all its glory, the hype train is still chugging along as gamers are still eager to find out how the final PS5 console looks like. Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Sony's PlayStation 5 are scheduled to arrive sometime in the holiday of 2020. There is no release date, no price range or what games will be brought to the next-gen console. But, expect to hear more about these gaming consoles between now and the release window.
