The PS5 Is Really Big and Xbox’s Phil Spencer Explains Why

There are a lot of fundamental differences between the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, but one of the most noticeable is the difference in size. The Series X isn’t exactly small, but it’s nowhere near as large as the PS5. During his guest appearance on Animal Talking, Phill Spencer weighed in on why the PS5 is so large and why the Xbox Series X is able to be a bit smaller. Believe it or not, for the man behind Xbox, he’s given us the most logical reasoning so far. During his time on Animal Talking, Spencer was asked about the aesthetics of both next-gen consoles, and he explained that engineers from both sides of the pond faced a lot of the same issues, one of the most prominent being the challenge that is keeping the consoles cool....

Valve CEO Says the Xbox Series X is Better Than PS5 on Live TV

This isn’t the first time that we’ve visited the question of whether the Xbox Series X is better than the PlayStation 5 or vice versa. Industry insiders seem to claim that the PS5 is better, and an Epic Game’s boss has even said that the PS5’s SSD is “way ahead” of high-end PCs. At the same time, the Series X has had it’s own early fan club, the latest of which is Valve President and CEO, Gabe Newell. Newell has been stationed in New Zealand for a little while now, and has recently been doing a media tour to thank New Zealanders for letting him hunker down amid the coronavirus pandemic. His most recent stop was a current affairs show known as The Project where the hosts asked him a number of gaming related questions, the most prominent of...

The Sony PS5 Could Be Short-Lived Compared to Previous Generations

The PS4 and Xbox One have been around for some seven years, which has become about the standard for gaming consoles. The fifth-gen PS5, however, could have a shorter lifecycle and be replaced with a sixth-gen model – presumably the PlayStation 6 – in as little as five years after its initial launch. That would mean that we could be going through this whole Microsoft vs. Sony charade as soon as 2024 with the next-gen consoles launching as soon as 2025. News that the PS5 could be the shortest generation of the console to date comes via. Digitimes, which quotes a Taiwanese supply chain with inside knowledge. In those five years, it’s reported that Sony is estimated sales topping 120 million units which would be “roughly double” the sales numbers expected for the Xbox Series X. Microsoft’s move, at...

New Leak Claims Silent Hill PS5 Reveal Could Happen In August

The drama behind a new Silent Hill game has been as gruesome and terrifying as the game itself. We heard new games were coming, then we heard it would return for the PS5, then in quick succession Konami shot the rumors down. A month or so later, a Japanese horror artist hinted at a Silent Hills revival, and a month after that, yet another leak said that a reveal was imminent. The trail has, for the most part, been cold ever since. So, what in the world is going on? Is it coming? Is it not? Well, known (and usually accurate) leaker, Aesthetic Gamer, has clued us in on some new facts, and now it looks like Silent Hill could be revealed as soon as next month. Now, before we get into the tweet from Aesthetic Gamer, I should...

Xbox Series X and PS5 Tech: The Road to Making Dreams Come True

It wasn’t that long ago that we got our first look at what the PlayStation 5 is capable of when Epic Games showcased Unreal Engine 5’s new Nanite technology. The graphics, lighting, and, well, everything was just breathtaking. Now, Epic Games’ Chief of Technology Kim Liberi has come out and admitted that next-gen console hardware will help developers bring their dreams to life. Those dreams? Movie-like graphics in video games. In the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, Liberi laid this concept out as it relates ot him: “It has been a lifelong dream of mine that real-time computer graphics, and in particular games, can be as believable and realistic as a movie. Next-gen graphics and processing power will not only make games more immersive but will also enable entirely new gameplay concepts that can take...

The Ray Tracing Capability of Cyberpunk 2077 On PC Will Humble You As a Console Player

Much like the PlayStation vs. Xbox war, the PC vs. console war continues to rage, and the general consensus is that PC is better than consoles most of the time – at least until the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X launch, and we’ll have to revisit that statement. Be that as it may, Cyberpunk 2077 players on PC will have a huge advantage over console players at launch. I’m talking, of course, about ray tracing, and now we have a new set of images to showcase just how dramatically it improves the game. As you can see from the images we have here, Ray Tracing takes graphics and overall appearance to the next level. There are a handful of different effects going on here: Ray-Traced Diffuse Illumination: This “captures sky radiance”...

PlayStation VP Shines Light on the PlayStation 5’s User Interface Future Special Editions

Matt McLaurin, PlayStation’s VP of User Experience, spent some time on LinkedIn to answer some fan questions about the PS5. The idea behind the social Q&A was to discuss the PS5’s design, so we didn’t learn anything in terms of pricing, but we have learned that the PS5’s future is bright. PS5 Special Editions and Potential Customization When Sony finally revealed the PlayStation 5, the general consensus is that it looks downright amazing. While the Xbox Series X is rectangular and fairly bland, the PS5 features a subtle V shape with sharp edges and a two-tone design with sexy blue backlighting. The PS5 will, without a doubt, look amazing in my entertainment system as I’m sure it will in yours too. But, that’s now all that’s written in the cards. Sony...

Emphasizing Value Over Price Is Just a Nice Way To Say The PS5 Will Probably Be Expensive

We can finally lay eyes on the PlayStation 5, and we’ve even seen some gameplay, but how much is Sony’s next-gen console going to cost us? Well, it seems that Sony doesn’t even know and, if it does, it’s not ready to tell us yet. In an interview with BBC, PlayStation CEO, Jim Ryan, was questioned about the PS5’s pricing, and he was quick to point out that “you're not going to hear anything on price today.” He did, however, admit that Sony wants to “emphasize value as opposed to price” – something that could hint at the PlayStation 5 (and its games, for that matter) being a little more expensive than anyone is expecting. The discless “all-digital” version wasn’t made to be cheaper, either, it was made because “consumers are purchasing solely digitally these days” and the company...

Oddworld Soulstorm’s PS5 Reveal Trailer Brought Tons of Action and Mayhem

The PS5 Future of Gaming event – the very one that gave us our first look at the PlayStation 5 console – included a deep look into a number of upcoming games. If Godfall’s new gameplay trailer didn’t interest you, then perhaps you’ll like what you see in the new Oddworld Soulstorm trailer. It’s far from our first look at gameplay, but there is a lot of action, mayhem, and a lot of cute aliens being laid to waste. Along with the action you can check out in the trailer below, the trailer also confirms that Soulstorm is, in fact, coming to both PlayStation 4 and PS5 exclusively, at least for a limited time before it’s released on console. That said, we still don’t have a release date for the PlayStation version of the game, so if you’re a...

The New Gameplay Trailer for PS5-Exclusive Godfall Has Me Super Hyped

Shortly after the turn of the decade, we got out first look at Godfall gameplay, but we learned just a day afterward that it not only was it old PC footage but it was also more than one year old. Now, along with the reveal of the PlayStation 5, we’ve gotten our first look at official PS5 gameplay, and holy crap is it amazing As one of the first games announced for the PlayStation 5, we were expecting to see some real footage when the PS5 finally debuted, and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened. In the trailer (shown below), we got our first glimpse of the world Aperion on the precipice of ruin, and the music is on the same level of that as Doom Eternal – a very nice surprise, if I do say so myself. On...
