    Xbox Scarlett or PS5?

    So I was not aware that they were closing in on next gen consoles already. I guess it will be 8 years come 2020 which is normal, maybe? I didn't get an Xbox One or PS4 and I intend on getting a Switch this fall. I made my choice to stick to PC gaming and go back to Nintendo for console gaming.

    Anyways, which one do you think will end up doing better this time around?

    Actually, for most of 2020 the Xbox One will be six years old. Keep in mind that the Xbox 360 was manufactured for over ten years and I think generations are lasting longer now. We're not far off "uncanny valley" and with the way things are going, I think it's possible that in the next generation instead of whole new consoles (e.g. Xbox One X or PlayStation 4 Pro) consoles will have removable parts, inspired by PC upgrades but much simpler. So, the processors or graphics might slide out in an enclosure and be replaceable with new parts a few years after the console's release.

    Of course, that's pure speculation from me, but with Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony all releasing new versions of systems, it would make sense economically to do something like I said. Back when we were approaching the millennium we were amazed by graphical advancements as we progressed through the generations, but now the "wow factor" has started to diminish as we're getting used to realism.

    I know I veered off-topic there, but from a PC gamer perspective it's hard to take sides as far as PlayStation/Xbox goes. Rather than graphics capability this will probably be down to exclusives and brand loyalty.

    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    I read something that was said by either Microsoft or Sony and they said they are done competing with PC gaming which would imply that they are going to focus less on the perks of playing on a computer and more about the simplicity of plug and play again. Now I am not sure how true this is or what they meant by it, it can go either way, but I think it would be in their best interest to focus more on the "console" feel than push for the stars and over do it.
