If you’re currently deciding which next generation gaming system you should buy, you’ve come to the right place. As below is a fool proof guide to choosing the right gaming system for your needs. Especially if you can’t decide whether you’d like to purchase a Play Station 5 or an X Box Series X.
Which Gaming System Should I Buy?
Consider your gaming history:
If you’ve spent much of your life playing Play Station, you may want to consider pre-ordering a Play Station 5 over a X Box Series X. So that you won’t have to adjust to using a completely foreign controller. For the same reason, if you currently game on a X Box One, you may prefer sticking with X Box and purchasing a X Box Series X over a Play Station 5.
Consider the processing power of each device:
The X Box Series X has a more powerful processor than the Play Station 5 and can reach speeds of 3.8 Gigahertz. While the Play Station 5’s processor can only reach speeds of 3.5 Gigahertz.
So if you’ve been sitting on the fence when it comes to selecting a next generation console, hopefully you now have all the information which you need to make an informed decision.
Consider how long you’re prepared to spend staring at loading screens:
As the Play Station 5 processes data quicker than the X Box Series X, you’ll spend less time waiting for your games to load if you opt to purchase a Play Station 5 over an X Box Series X.
Think about the storage each gaming console offers:
Keep in mind that the Play Station 5 offers 825 G of storage while the X Box Series X offers a full TB of storage. However, keep in mind that both Sony and Microsoft plan to offer Play Station and X Box users cloud based storage. So if you don’t mind paying for cloud based memory, you may not be too concerned about the amount of internal storage that your next gaming console will offer.
Think about the game franchises which you enjoy playing:
As some game franchises and titles are exclusive to Play Station or X Box, it’s also well worth considering which next generation console will be compatible with the games which you’d like to play. As an example, Ghost of Tsushima which is one of the highest rated games of 2020 is exclusive to Play Station as is The Last Of Us: Part 2. While some games which are exclusive to X Box include Forza Motorsport and Halo: Wars 2.
If you’re not interested in purchasing the Play Station 5 or the X Box Series you may be happy purchasing a current generation Nintendo Switch. Especially, if you’re a fan of Nintendo characters.
So if you’ve been sitting on the fence when it comes to selecting a next generation console, hopefully you’re now able to decide whether to opt for a Play Station 5 or an X Box Series X. Although if you’re a hardcore gamer you may be severely tempted to purchase both next generation consoles.
