The battle between Xbox and PlayStation fans has been cooking for over a decade, and the two sides are still going great. Microsoft and Sony have developed advanced and more effective versions of their iconic platforms over three console generations. Consequently, it can be safely said that both gaming devices have come a long way in terms of graphics, controls, and the overall gaming experience.
The new rivalry also signifies the gaming console's entry to the 4K gaming level, which only achieved with a PC powerhouse. Nowadays, gamers are still skeptical about 4K gaming (with PS4 Pro), but soon, 4K will be a standard for gaming. This is because they are great when it comes to enhancing your overall gaming experience. Moreover, personalized game controllers are a great addition to the gaming realm.
PlayStation Vs. Xbox: Cost
The most recent and advanced version of the Xbox One is the Xbox One X, and it goes for about $499 (£449, €499) Xbox Series X and a cheaper $299 (£249, €299) Xbox Series S. When you pay for the latest model, you are getting better graphics, more memory, and faster load times. Moreover, the Xbox Live Gold subscription that gives gamers access to extra entertainment platforms like Netflix and online gaming can cost you an extra $60 per year.
The most recent version of the PlayStation 5, the console's latest version, goes for around $399 for PS5 Digital Edition and $499 for PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive.
Microsoft Xbox One X Vs. PS4 Pro: Hardware
The Xbox One X is equipped with the updated AMD GPU that provides six teraflops of graphics output. It also has a super-fast processor with a clock speed of 2.3 GHz and a massive 12 GB DDR5 RAM. On the contrary, the PlayStation 4 Pro has been packed with the integrated AMD Polaris GPU with 4.2 teraflops of graphics output. The performance of the GPU is great. But as the number says, it is nowhere near the Xbox One X. Same thing goes for the 2.1-GHz "Jaguar" CPU. The PS 4 Pro also has less amount of RAM (8GB). So, regarding great hardware, the Microsoft Xbox One X is the real champ.
The Microsoft One X can offer you the native 4K gaming experience. It can run 4K games at 60 fps. But that doesn't mean that all the forthcoming games will run at a particular frame rate. It can only happen if the developers choose to take hold of the greatly upgraded hardware. The PlayStation 4 Pro doesn't support the native 4K resolution. But it can improve the resolution close to 4K.
The bottom line
If you focus on price, VR, and a larger gaming library, the PS 4 Pro is the right option. However, if you focus on performance and want to invest your money in a console that can be compatible with the VR in the near future, the Xbox One is really worth your hard-earned money.
