Both Sony and Microsoft have been talking about the next generation of their consoles. What we know about how the future of gaming will look like is that there is no much time needed to wait until we are able to see the next Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5. The problem is that we do not know the exact date. Some reports suggest that 2019 is the year of their release, some others vote on 2020, but there is no official word to confirm this. There is one brave analyst who claims that the generations we are waiting for will not be like we know them.
According to Mat Piscatella, an NPD analyst, who talked to GamingBolt, the consoles we are waiting for will arrive at us either this year or the next one. Besides that, the model will not be either generational nor traditional. Both manufacturers will get out of their comfort zones.
According to him, even though the differences will be harsh, the companies’ revenue will not go down too much. Somehow he considered that the new things to come would affect the companies just a little bit.
It is not that surprising, is it? When something new arrives on the market, everyone wants to try it so older versions will not be sold as many as when they were new. Both the consoles from Sony and the one from Microsoft are predicted to be compatible with VR systems so who would not be excited for that?
Unfortunately, no concrete information has been released about the launch of either the Xbox or the PlayStation 5, but for sure if that does not happen this year, we should expect it next year. What we know for sure is that both companies are working on creating a better experience for their buyers.
