The question of which is better PS5 or Xbox Series X fills the expanses of the Internet every day more and more. In this article, we have conducted a detailed analysis of the main characteristics of the consoles from which it will become clear who is the winner by far. But still, we must say that both systems are at a high level and provide a quality picture and easy control.
PS5 vs Xbox Series X: price
Both consoles have the same price, namely $500 for one device, but if you think that at this point you can move on to parsing the other category you are mistaken. The PS5 and Xbox Series X are the standard versions of the consoles, while there are also the $400 PS5 Digital Edition and Xbox Series S. So how are they different from their standard versions?
Both the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition have the same features except for one thing, the physical 4K Blu-ray disc drive, the Digital Edition doesn’t have it. If you consider the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, the S-version differs significantly from the original hardware, it has a less powerful GPU, SSD, less RAM, etc.
So we can see that both devices have cheaper options, but to say the exact winner in this round of PS5 vs Xbox Series X is quite difficult because both consoles are worth their money.
PS5 vs Xbox Series X: Games
Developers companies differ significantly in the way they create game systems and the choice of game libraries. Xbox Series X expects you to play the same games you originally played on the Xbox One. But the PS5 has included many exclusives that were released simultaneously with it. But frankly, many of them are also available on the previous version of the console.
But still, so far the PS5 leads in this aspect because its competitor Xbox Series X does not have in its arsenal of exclusive games, although the optimization of games on the console is impressive.
PS5 vs Xbox Series X: Performance
This is another difficult criterion by which to compare these two consoles, for this let’s try to take two games and compare their quality on both devices. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will show us the loading time on each of them and the playback speed.
Here we would like to note that the PS5 does not lie about its fast loading time, because the game loaded in a couple of seconds, while the Xbox Series X loaded the game for a full minute.
During the gameplay the difference is not particularly visible, there were no significant differences.
Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition will help us to compare the frame rate because the action game will not let us a standstill. Here the difference is already more noticeable, and all in favor of the Xbox Series X. This console offers a brighter contrast. But still, these two devices go side by side and it is difficult to single out the best of them.
