The next generation of consoles won’t officially kick off until Q4 2020, but there’s already plenty of insider tips coming out giving details on the consoles. The latest rumors suggest that Sony’s PS5 will be more powerful than Xbox’s Project Scarlett, with multiple sources confirming the rumor.
One source comes from Game Informer, who heard at E3 2019 that PS5 would be more powerful than Project Scarlett. Now CLS host Colin Moriarty claimed on the latest episode of his podcast that he’s spoken to several developers who all said that PS5 beats the next Xbox in terms of raw power. Considering the sources that these rumors are coming from, it seems to suggest that this information has a good chance of being legitimate.
This wouldn’t be the biggest surprise if it turns out to be true, as the base PlayStation consoles have been more powerful than base Xbox consoles for a couple of generations now. Both PS3 and PS4 were more powerful than Xbox 360 and Xbox One, respectively, though the upgraded Xbox One X is more powerful than the upgraded PS4 Pro.
This all needs to be taken with a grain of salt for the time being, as we still have a ways to go until we have the official information. We likely won’t have the full details until E3 2020, where we’ll learn about things like the names, prices, specs and release dates. If any more information surfaces we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
