So you really believe Sony will launch a new gen that is not even 2 times faster than its latest console launch, the ps4 pro? But for some reason you believe the anaconda will be 2x the x1x, making it almost 1.5 the power of the ps5 assuming its all coming at the same time. What are you expecting the prices will be for them?
Honestly a new gen console coming at only 1.3 the power of the previous last gen top console would be just ridiculous. Specially not weaker than stadia.
Yea, he keeps saying this, but there is no way it is happening. It would be absolute suicide for Sony to release a next gen system that is only ~2 Tflops more than the XBO X, while XB2 is 2x the X, and probably only $100 more. PS5 would just be a punch line at that point. We have already gotten a confirmation from a reporter at Kotaku that Sony and MS are at least trying to outdo the 10.7 Tflops that Stadia is pulling. I think worst case scenerio they will be about on par with that, so ~10 Tflops. The 8.3 seems more like wishful thinking on his part to me.
We are talking about a 2 year window and you want to look at a 2 month window?
Sony sold much more than MS from the very begging, and PS5 would do the same. Sony can easily have a contract obeying they average sales for the 2 year period (which would be over 30M) while MS can't, they never got anywhere near the numbers. Unless console landscape changes a lot (which you seem to be determined to believe because of reasons) Xbox next will sell about half of PS5.
Exactly. Not sure why this concept is so hard to comprehend for some. Sony has much better bargaining power in order to demand lower prices, at least on the onset of the gen. Yes, if by some miracle the XB2 performs about on par, or better, than the PS5, AMD will adjust prices to reflect this change. But, at the beginning, Sony is going to have made 115M+ purchases with AMD, making them much more money than MS, which gives them a better bargaining position. AMD is going to want to make them happy, and will see that Sony is more than likely going to repeat that success next gen.
