Amid publication of full technical specifications Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 research firm Dfc intelligence released an updated report on the upcoming console race.
Ten days ago, company analysts predicted a high risk of transferring non-x-ray systems to 2021 due to supply chain disruptions due to the coronavirus epidemic. The new material is more devoted to which of the consoles will be in a more advantageous position. In short, experts believe that Xbox Series X will be able to achieve a reduction (how big, will depend on new games Xbox Game Studios) Sony’s market sharetyped during PlayStation 4 but ultimately, the PlayStation 5 should still retain the position of the best-selling console of the two.
Other report highlights:
- DFC predicts that due to the coronavirus, the launch shipments of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be very limited, while there is still the possibility that both consoles will not be released in 2020.
- However, how the consoles show themselves at launch is key to building a long-term reputation in the eyes of gamers. The Xbox One had a strong start thanks to the brand’s core audience, but even on the launch day, the PlayStation 4 was widely perceived as the “best product.”
- Sony’s current market reach, with which it will enter the next generation, is less than in the heyday of the PlayStation 2. However, the company has a key advantage over the Xbox: in software from in-house studios, brand recognition and global distribution. Over the next few years, this advantage is likely to be irresistible for Microsoft and the Xbox Series X, experts say. The Xbox brand is popular in fewer markets, and new Microsoft studios still have a lot to prove.
