So quick update, I don’t think anyone read my last blog post but that okay. To be honest I’ve had a ton of disappointments in my life recently and I’m just taking them in waves. I’ve also only posted once so in order to build a community I need to continue writing.
Anyway, Xbox just announced the prices for the Xbox Series S and X at $300 and $500. This seems fairly reasonable to me knowing that the cheaper model will drop in price as time goes on. Can you imagine buying a console with PC graphics for $250 or even $200! That sounds pretty awesome to me.
It’s hard for me to think about switching over to Xbox as I have been a PlayStation fan for so long. I also have a huge library of games on my PS4. This leads me to my next concern. The PS5 better be backwards compatible. If it isn’t, this could be a deal breaker for me. I really have nothing against Xbox and wouldn’t mind giving it a try, but I just can’t justify owning two consoles (which are basically the same thing). Anyways, don’t let me down Sony!
So everyone is now looking to Sony for a price reveal. My guess is that the price will be $400 and that only one model will be released, instead of two. This PS5 model will then have specs in between the cheaper and higher end Xbox consoles. It seems very unlikely to me that Sony will copy Microsoft’s exact marketing strategy, but who know? Regardless, I’m just excited that we are getting new console with improved graphics, speed and much more! The new consoles really should be an improvement in every way.
Anyways, let me know what you think all of the news! Do you think Sony will release one or two PS5 models and what do you think the price will be? Also, are you part of the Xbox speaker gang?
P.S. Blog #2 is now officially done. Give yourself a pat on the back Austin :) (Honestly I didn’t even think I would make it this far but here we are!)
