Sony and Microsoft are in a tough competition when it comes to PS5 and the Xbox Two launch in 2020.
The Xbox One didn’t perform well in comparison to PS4. It was doomed from the beginning from its DRM controversy to bundling the console with the unwanted and expensive Kinect accessory. However, Microsoft has been working on the next gen successor. Here’s why the PS5 could lose to the Xbox Two this time!
War of Exclusives
Previously, Microsoft struggled to stand against Sony as it lacked worthwhile exclusives. But it will not make the same mistake twice. This time the company is coming back with a wide range of exclusives. Microsoft recently acquired multiple studios including RPG specialists in Obsidian and Xile, Hellblade developer Ninja Theory, plus Playground Games, Undead Labs and Compulsion.
Games on Demand
In recent years, Microsoft has come up with ideas like the Xbox Game Pass. This has enabled subscribes to access brand new exclusive games on Xbox One and Xbox 360 at lower cost. The Game Pass is an attractive proposition for the Xbox owners with Microsoft acquiring lots of studios.
There is a possibility that Microsoft may widen the range of choices offered to the subscribers with multiple membership tiers.
Offers the Most Powerful Console
The Xbox One X has done really well since the time of its launch. It has the most powerful console due to which the multi-console owners have to think twice before purchasing the new releases. The launch of a next-gen juggernaut by Microsoft can majorly trouble Sony by overshadowing the PS5.
Cross Platform and Backwards Compatibility
Cross platform play and compatibility has been a good option for the users. The users can play multiplayer games with their friends regardless of the platform used by them. Microsoft has embraced the idea allowing it to put it in a better position. Backwards compatibility is the another advantage that the company has over Sony.
