We still don’t know how the Xbox Series X will fare in comparison to the PlayStation 5, as Sony has remained relatively tight-lipped on its next-generation hardware thus far, but you can expect tech-heads and fanboys alike will be debating the pros and cons of each system once the information is out in the wild.
The next generation of hardware from both Microsoft and Sony is due to be released in Q4 2020.
