The Xbox Series cheap advertising displays X hardware has been cheap advertising displays praised cheap advertising displays by an experienced cheap advertising displays former PlayStation developer, who believes Sony was cheap advertising displays “caught off cheap advertising displays guard” cheap advertising displays by the console’s impressive specs cheap advertising displays compared to the cheap advertising displays PS5.

That’s according to Chris Grannell, an cheap advertising displays industry veteran who spent cheap advertising displays almost 14 years cheap advertising displays at the now-defunct Studio Liverpool, which was responsible for cheap advertising displays the cheap advertising displays blisteringly-fast WipEout games. Grannell also cheap advertising displays spent time at Guerrilla Games, the cheap advertising displays developer behind the PS4 smash-hit cheap advertising displays Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Speaking on the RDX cheap advertising displays podcast, Grannell said: “PS5 is not a bad cheap advertising displays console, it’s an absolute beast of cheap advertising displays a piece of hardware. But it’s cheap advertising displays just a piece of hardware which cheap advertising displays is slower on numerous kinds of paths cheap advertising displays than what Microsoft cheap advertising displays has put together.”

We already know that Microsoft cheap advertising displays has Sony cheap advertising displays beat when cheap advertising displays it comes to direct, technical cheap advertising displays comparisons between the Xbox Series cheap advertising displays X and PS5 cheap advertising displays specs, and it seems that Grannell cheap advertising displays shares that opinion. “The machine that cheap advertising displays Microsoft has put together cheap advertising displays is an absolute beast compared to what Sony has cheap advertising displays put together,” said cheap advertising displays Grannell. This opinion is also shared cheap advertising displays among other developers that Grannell has spoken cheap advertising displays to, apparently.

Xbox Won?

Perhaps somewhat controversially, Grannell also believes cheap advertising displays that Sony has cheap advertising displays “rested on their laurels” after the success of PS4. “They’ve got this cheap advertising displays massive cheap advertising displays market share cheap advertising displays and lead, and they’ve done a cheap advertising displays kind of PS3 is what cheap advertising displays I’ve been hearing. It’s not that cheap advertising displays bad in cheap advertising displays terms of hardware and complications, and things cheap advertising displays like that, cheap advertising displays but cheap advertising displays just a little bit cheap advertising displays of they didn’t really kind of cheap advertising displays appreciate what Xbox cheap advertising displays were going cheap advertising displays to try and do cheap advertising displays in terms of this power narrative.”

Microsoft cheap advertising displays is clearly feeling cheap advertising displays bullish cheap advertising displays about the Xbox Series cheap advertising displays X specs, and cheap advertising displays has been positioning its next-gen console as the “most cheap advertising displays powerful” console ever cheap advertising displays made. Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently revealed that cheap advertising displays the company felt “even better” about Xbox cheap advertising displays Series cheap advertising displays X after Sony’s cheap advertising displays PS5 cheap advertising displays hardware reveal

Of course, cheap advertising displays having the cheap advertising displays most powerful console on cheap advertising displays the market doesn’t guarantee success by any means. cheap advertising displays It’s cheap advertising displays ultimately the games and services that cheap advertising displays define a console cheap advertising displays generation and cheap advertising displays Sony cheap advertising displays has cheap advertising displays a history cheap advertising displays of creating compelling exclusives that Microsoft cheap advertising displays hasn’t been able to cheap advertising displays match in recent years. 

Grannell cheap advertising displays appears to cheap advertising displays agree, and is confident that the PS5 cheap advertising displays will cheap advertising displays benefit from a strong first-party lineup. cheap advertising displays “It’s going to be the first-party studios that cheap advertising displays shine until cheap advertising displays the cheap advertising displays third-parties start to really get their cheap advertising displays head around things,” Grannell cheap advertising displays went on to cheap advertising displays add: “You’re going to see cheap advertising displays absolutely incredible work cheap advertising displays from Guerrilla Games, cheap advertising displays you’re going to see incredible work from cheap advertising displays Insomniac - the usual cheap advertising displays suspects.”

Ray-traced rivals

Grannell believes cheap advertising displays the most cheap advertising displays noticeable discrepancy between the cheap advertising displays Xbox Series X cheap advertising displays and PS5 when it comes to performance cheap advertising displays is cheap advertising displays how each console handles cheap advertising displays real-time ray-tracing

“If you look at cheap advertising displays the throughput and ray-tracing capability [of cheap advertising displays Xbox Series X] then you cheap advertising displays start to… cheap advertising displays understand why developers cheap advertising displays would be saying it’s kind of staggering,” Grannell explained. cheap advertising displays “So you’ve got the maths, then cheap advertising displays you start looking cheap advertising displays at cheap advertising displays the real-time ray-tracing capability… that’s cheap advertising displays where cheap advertising displays Sony has been caught cheap advertising displays off guard.”

One PS5 cheap advertising displays feature cheap advertising displays that is receiving cheap advertising displays praise, cheap advertising displays however, is cheap advertising displays the PS5’s incredibly cheap advertising displays fast SSD, which has double the raw throughput of cheap advertising displays the Xbox Series X cheap advertising displays drive. This will allow cheap advertising displays developers cheap advertising displays to load assets much quicker, and potentially avoid cheap advertising displays load times cheap advertising displays entirely

One controller to rule them all

Sony cheap advertising displays is also banking on cheap advertising displays its innovative DualSense controller, cheap advertising displays which supports haptic feedback cheap advertising displays and adaptive triggers to cheap advertising displays make games feel more cheap advertising displays ‘immersive’ (though we're skeptical about cheap advertising displays how many devs will use cheap advertising displays it). Meanwhile, the cheap advertising displays Xbox Series cheap advertising displays X controller is cheap advertising displays a far more conservative cheap advertising displays refinement cheap advertising displays of the cheap advertising displays current Xbox One controller, which is admittedly a fan-favorite with cheap advertising displays many gamers.

Both cheap advertising displays consoles will support backwards compatibility, although Microsoft’s cheap advertising displays Xbox Series X is likely to support thousands of cheap advertising displays titles from the cheap advertising displays entire Xbox cheap advertising displays back catalog (and will do some cool cheap advertising displays things with cheap advertising displays HDR, too), while Sony seems cheap advertising displays to cheap advertising displays be cheap advertising displays focusing strictly cheap advertising displays on PS4 games. 

While cheap advertising displays we still don’t have a cheap advertising displays release date for either the Xbox Series cheap advertising displays X or cheap advertising displays PS5 (and cheap advertising displays still don’t cheap advertising displays know what the cheap advertising displays PS5 even cheap advertising displays looks like – though cheap advertising displays we have speculated), the console cheap advertising displays wars cheap advertising displays are already beginning to hot up as we get cheap advertising displays closer to the next console cheap advertising displays generation.
