No doubt the next-gen console will bring out a tremendous shift in video games. Sony after quite a long time has started breaking the silence about the existence of PS5 gaming console. On the other side, Microsoft is not quiet about a new variant of Xbox coming up in the year 2020.
The truth is E3 2020 will be full of surprises, but there are also rumors that Sony is going to skip E3 once again and will announce its new console PS5 in its own event. This relies on time, talking about the power of the next-gen console during investor call for EA’s Fiscal 2020 Q3, CFO Blake Jorgensen shared a statement that “The power of the new consoles is gonna be substantially greater than existing consoles”.
We can do a lot more [with PS5 and Xbox Series X]. Things we’re doing will blow people’s minds.
EA did not share any update on what game titles are coming out from their pocket but highlighted the upgrades is enough to bring a transformation for game developers to do more. Jorgensen shared that there is a lack of innovation for the gaming industry in terms of sophisticate games as well under the hood of creating a new genre.
Having a potentially powerful console will break the limits ho we play games today, mostly for years we had seen a graphic upgrade transforming the game from sketchy 2D images to an ultra-realistic 3D graphics, and now there is more to come. Pointing towards new genre hints the age of new console will let game developers break their boundaries. EA has not revealed anything about the kind of games or experiences they are working on.
During CES 2020 Sony broke its silence and shared Five Core Features Of PS5 including the new logo, while rumored consumer model claims the new PlayStation will have an X-factor teasing the Xbox. There were leaks on PS5 benchmarking, PS5 Specs, and offering a platform for developers to create an expansive world. None of them clearly stated PS5 hardware upgrades, to an extent is also true that PS5 will be 8K console. For Xbox Series X all we know will have a drastic shift in its design via a Prototype Leak of Xbox Series X that features a rectangle form factor that can placed vertically or horizontally.
There is still more to come.
