Introduction In the world of gaming, the battle between Xbox and PlayStation has been ongoing for years. With the recent release of their next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and PS5, the competition has reached new heights. In this article, we will compare these two gaming giants in terms of performance, design, exclusive games, and more.
Sales Performance Here we see data representing the sales through to consumers and change in sales performance of the three major gaming consoles: Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5. Sony's PlayStation 5 has sold around double the number of units as the Xbox Series X | S, according to data shared in a recent Take-Two report. New sales data also suggests that the PlayStation 5 may have outsold the Xbox Series X|S by roughly a 2:1 margin. While it was common knowledge that the PS5 was outselling the Xbox Series X, the extent of the margin is quite significant.
Raw Power and Design The Xbox Series X has a slight edge when it comes to raw power, design, and backward compatibility. In terms of raw power, the Xbox Series X boasts 12 teraflops of GPU performance compared to the PS5's 10.28 teraflops. The Xbox Series X also offers a more compact and sleek design, resembling a small tower rather than a traditional console. On the other hand, the PS5 features a bold and futuristic design with its white and black color scheme, making it a centerpiece in any gaming setup.
