Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which will prevail? Xbox Power or Playstation Speed?

Pick your side!

XBOX 27 31.03%
 
PLAYSTATION 50 57.47%
 
Master Race 10 11.49%
 
Total:87

Next gen is sounding a lot like SNES vs Mega Drive to me.

One side has the power, the other has the speed.

Will XSX arm muscle beat up Sony?

Or will PS5 leg speed run rounds around Microsoft?

Will you Play With Power? Or will you be Blasting throught your games?

What will be games be focused on? What future we are entering into?

And most importantly, are you going to LoD next gen?

Let the war begin!

Speed is always great and if that speed can extend to all parts of the system then the PS5 probably can edge out the Xbox.  If that speed does not extend to all parts of the system and you have bottlenecks then it gets wasted and the PS5 will only be fast in certain scenarios.  

One thing that interest me is MS making it very important how their system can maintain its speed at all times with no drop.  I wonder if they were trying to communicate that their IO may not be as fast as the competition but its maintained throughout all parts of the design.



Didn't Nintendo win this gen with their Vita.



I'm excited to see the change in level design that the SSD will bring. I feel like its something we can't truly understand until we experience it ourselves.

I wouldn't discount a PS5 Pro down the line, either. That way, Sony eventually wins in power and speed lol.

Vita always win.

None, as always with all generations, exclusive games will dictate the outcome, of which xbox will have no exclusives for 2 years. So there's really no competition there.

I still will choose xbox if ps5 doesn't have vapor cooling and replaceable/upgradeable graphics card

PS - Just read that ps5 is not actually 10 tf, that's only overclocked sometimes, not at all times like 12tf on xbox. More and more Im leaning towards xbox.

Only PS5 have a chance of having LoD so it win by default.

The 5.5Gb/s of the SSD is sustained, same as 2.23Ghz of the GPU the frequency drop of it and CPU will be minimal and rarely from what Cerny said and shouldn't impact performance.

But I expect Xbox to perform at least 10% better than PS5, but yes PS5 games to load faster and RAM too be better used due to that faster SSD and its solutions.

Xbox Series X has the technical advantage.

I doubt many will be switching systems next gen. I think Sony has a $399 price in mind for PS5, repeating the successful model of the PS4. My guess is that the XSX is going to be $499-$549. EU and Japan will still be Sony's to lose, while US and UK will be probably be a close battle. In the end, it will come down to what it always does, games, games, and more games.
