PS5 design should be revealed soon as mass production begins; Xbox Series X is the "most compatible console ever" as first shots in the next-gen console battle are fired
The upcoming PS5 vs. Xbox Series X contest is starting to become more tangible as we approach June. It’s already been reported that a Sony event has apparently been scheduled for June 3, and while this is expected to be a games reveal showcase, there are many that believe the PlayStation 5 hardware itself will also be revealed.
It is a possibility, especially as Bloomberg reporter Takashi Mochizuki has mentioned that mass production of the PS5 is starting, meaning there will be completed hardware units available for Sony executives to show off. Regardless of the many estimates of the actual date of the PS5 reveal, it seems reasonable to believe that fans will finally get to see the console very soon.
Microsoft may also believe that a PS5 design reveal is imminent, as the company has been boasting about its Xbox Series X on Twitter in a post that also gives some side-eye to Sony’s console. The tweet starts with “Xbox Series X is the most compatible console ever” and then there is a reminder that thousands of games will be ready to play for those who buy the next-gen console at launch time.
However, Microsoft has also fired some shots in the PS5 vs. Xbox Series X battle by mentioning that there is no boost mode and no downclocking to hinder its vaunted console. These statements are a clear reference to the PS5’s boost mode and variable clock frequencies. It seems things are going to start getting heated in the next-generation console space as we head toward the holiday 2020 launches.
