Sony and Microsoft have been at it for years. It first started when PlayStation broke spec boundaries with the PS2 and Microsoft dared to challenge their reign with the Xbox 360 (PS3 didn’t stand a chance). Both the PS4 and the Xbox One came out in November 2013. The former won with at least double the sales. But of course, the opposition isn’t backing down. What about the PCB design of the PS5 and Xbox Series X? At this new turn of the decade, both gaming powerhouses are going at it again during the holidays. That’s right—the dawn of the PS5 and the Xbox Series X is upon us, and their hardware is already looking pretty impressive. We’ve already discussed some key differences in a previous article, including SSD and RAM. But today, we’ll be taking a look at one overlooked component of gaming tech—their printed circuit board (PCB) designs.…

On the graphics side, Xbox Series X is using the RDNA 2 architecture from AMD. While we thought that the PS5 is using RDNA2, that does not seem to be the case according to a Sony engineer. Principle Graphics Engineer at Sony Rosario Leonardi confirmed that the PS5 is not using RDNA2 but an architecture that is actually between RDNA1 and 2. Some parts are based on RDNA2 but the primary core is based on RDNA1. This is interesting because Xbox Series X uses RDNA 2. We know that the Xbox Series X is going to have more raw power than the PS5 and this is another interesting bit of information that backs that claim. So I would not be surprised if the Xbox Series X is indeed the most powerful console at launch. Since the announcement of the PS5, Sony has not really discussed aspects other than the SSD.…

A new generation of console wars is about to start and with the official reveal of the PS5 and the Xbox Series X people are really interested in which console is going to outperform the other. Keeping in mind that both the Xbox Series X and the PS5 have similar hardware making a difference between them is not an easy task but it seems that the Xbox Series X has faster RAM and SSD. Even though Sony might have you think otherwise. Twitter user Johan Libert noted that the Xbox Series X could have a faster SSD and RAM compared to the PS5. You can check out the tweet below: https://twitter.com/akahmiii/status/1283565012259205120?s=20 He went on to mention that without XVA, SFS/BCpack that 10GB texture would take the Xbox Series X 2.08 seconds. To load 10GB in 0.0833 seconds you need an SSD with the RAW speed of 12GB/s. This is how…

Sucker Punch is working on releasing Ghost of Tsushima later this month but new information suggests that the developer is going to release a new Infamous game for the PS5. This is what you need to know regarding the matter. New Infamous Game For PS5 By Sucker Punch?

In the last year or so Sony has filed a ton of patents but this one is probably the most interesting one. The company has filed a patent for a technology that allows users to create multi-view streams and combine them into one view. A system comprising: a plurality of application/video game instances executed for a particular multi-player video game or application on a hosting service, the application/video game instances being executed in response to control signals received from a plurality of clients; compositing logic executed at the hosting service to combine video streams generated by each of the application/video game instances into a single video stream for a first one of the clients; and compression logic to compress the single video stream with low latency such that the user of the first one of the clients has the perception that the video game or application is being executed locally.…

PS5 and Xbox Series X are coming later this year and they have plenty of power to offer but what kind of difference should you expect to see in games coming out in 2020? According to Epic Games, the difference is not going to be all that great. Nick Penwarden, VP of engineering at Epic Games talked about the PS5 and Xbox Series X and he mentioned that games of 2020 are not going to take full advantage of the new hardware that these consoles have to offer. According to him, games are going to be different than current generation PS5 and Xbox One titles but players will feel the real difference in 2021. The following is what Penwarden had to say about games coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2020: I don’t think that there’s going to be, like this desert of not-great-looking stuff in the first…

At the Xbox event in May, Deep Silver revealed one of its first next-generation games, Chorus. Since the announcement details have been scarce but that changed with the release of the latest issue with PlayStation Magazine. In the exclusive interview,  creative director Marek Berka discussed how the PS5 and Xbox Series X allowed them to remove many of the development limitations. Transitioning to a new console generation is never easy but probably the toughest transition period was from PlayStation 2 to PlayStation 3. The sudden and overly complex change is the hardware architecture that caused many development issues. Getting to grips with the PlayStation 3 was challenging to say the least. But things changed with PS4 and Xbox One, developers had a better time developing for current-gen hardware. Now, it seems Sony has made things even easier with the PS5 and Xbox Series X. We do have the game running…

PS5 is big in size but just how big? The first console image has leaked into the wild, possibly from the factory itself. The image gives us the first look at the PS5 in real life; that is of course if this isn’t a doctored image. The possible first image of #PS5 from the factory? Posted on resetera, no source cited.It's big, not as big as many made it out to be. pic.twitter.com/q5op0p6Wud— Sikandar Mahmood (@SikandrMahmood) June 19, 2020 The console is huge, around the same size as the torso of the person holding it. The large size of the PS5 should help it keep its cool and not freak out every time a demanding game is played. It is safe to say that PS5 is the tallest console in recent memory and the tallest next-gen console 100%. For those with limited space in their entertainment centers, shelves, etc. do…

At the PS5 event earlier this month Sony announced a ton of its games under the PlayStation Brand but did you notice, not all games were announced with the PlayStation Brand logo. What that means is that not all of the PS5 games revealed are the event are exclusive to PS5. About half of the game announced at the PS5 event in June is coming to PC. Sony announced 26 PS5 games and if you are a PC gamer, the good news is that majority of them will be playable on PC in 2020-21. PS5 Games Coming to PC Below is a complete list of PS5 games coming to PC. Bugsnax A brand new adventure from the Octodad: Dadliest Catch creators. Bugsnax is the brainchild of the indie developers known as Young Horses. Bugsnax takes the players on a “whimsical adventure to Snaktooth Island.” The island is home to the…

Sony and Microsoft announced a worldwide launch for PS5 and Xbox Series X for later this year but it seems China might not be a part of the release plans. According to a report from Niko Partners, the Chinese launch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X isn’t expected until 2021. The worldwide launch of PlayStation 5 is expected this holiday season. Sony’s next-generation console comes in two variants that are to be sold at different price points. The Niko report, broken down by Sikandar Mahmood on Twitter, claims both PS5 and Xbox Series X will prove to a driving factor for the Chinese gaming revenue. However, both consoles aren’t expected in China until 2021. https://twitter.com/SikandrMahmood/status/1272647588710354948 https://twitter.com/SikandrMahmood/status/1272647984111587328 https://twitter.com/SikandrMahmood/status/1272648202668343297 China is a huge market for consoles, PC, and mobile gaming but its strict regulatory bodies make it difficult for software and hardware manufacturers to release their products. Sony and Microsoft are…
