This will be an important year for 2 of the most important console manufacturers in the industry, Microsoft and Sony, as their new generation systems will go on sale. Although we don’t know much about their technical capabilities, Microsoft is expected to be the most powerful; However, PlayStation 5 or PS5 should not be so easily ruled out, since according to sources they claim that so far it has the best performance.
Through the NeoGAF forums, via the informant BGs, who is recognized on the site for being an industry professional, shared that the current models of PlayStation 5 development kits have better performance compared to Xbox Series X.
“At the beginning of the year PS5 was still the one that offered the best performance,” said the informant, who did not add much to what other developers have said about it. However, he mentions that this could have changed with the new development kits. Unfortunately, he indicated that he does not have access to that information and that it will be until early summer when he has a physical encounter, so he reserved his opinions until he verifies it.
This takes by surprise, taking into account that the Microsoft console is expected to have the most power. In fact, a recent report mentioned that it will have more teraflops than PS5. However, it is important to mention that there are still many months left for the launch of the 2 platforms, so this could change in the future, since the development kits are premature models of the final consoles.
In this sense, BGs also mentions that in the end, both consoles will have similar characteristics and that in the generation a great graphics difference will not be identified, but that the real differentiators will be the games. “One will load the screen in 10 seconds and the other in 7 seconds. One will have a better sound than the other. One will run the game at 60fps and the other … too. What will really matter will be the quality that development studies can achieve with their time and budget,” explained the informant.

Although we do not know much about the new consoles of these giant companies, apparently there are already important projects/games taking shape. On the Microsoft side, the new studio of The Initiative could be working on a remake. As for Sony, the secrecy is such that until now we do not know how the console will look and the date of revelation is something with which the fans speculate a lot.
