Since the release of PS4 and Xbox One, gamers are waiting to see what’s in store for them in the next generation of consoles. Throughout these years, many people have shared their thoughts and predictions of the next-gen consoles and some even considered PS4 Pro and Xbox One X to be the next-gen consoles, however, they were just the same as PS4 and Xbox One and the only new thing was that they supported 4K gaming.
While 4K gaming is a big thing, it’s still not the next-gen everyone is waiting for. The latest rumors suggest that the new Sony console will be PS5 (Play Station 5) which is quite obvious. However, while everyone thought that the new Microsoft console will be Xbox Two following the same fashion as Xbox One, Microsoft surprised everyone by revealing that it will be Xbox Scarlett. A very weird but at the same time attractive and cool name for a video game console.
Moreover, according to the article “Next Generation Consoles PS5 And Xbox”, there will not be any change in the development cost of the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Scarlett games. This is good news for both the developers and the gamers as the devs won’t have to spend any extra money for the next-gen games and the gamers will be able to purchase next-gen games at the cost of current-gen (PS4 and Xbox One) games.
Another big thing is that PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will have backward compatibility. This means that players will be able to play PS4 and most possibly PS3, PS2, and PS1 games on the new PS5. The same goes for Xbox Scarlett. While thinking that PS5 will be able to run PS1 and PS2 games is a far reach, it really will be a cherry on the top of a delicious cake.
Whatever the case might be, we will see a huge line or a mob of people outside many stores throughout the world the day Sony’s PS5 (Play Station 5) and Microsoft’s Xbox Scarlett will release as the next-gen gaming consoles.
