According to IHS Markit Technology analyst Piers Harding-Rolls, Sony will continue to maintain its lead over Microsoft in the game console market with the launch of the new generation of PlayStation and Xbox.
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be released this year, and like previous generations, both will use AMD's processor and graphics chip, tailored to individual needs.
Obviously, they should differ in processing capacity, but this may not have such a big impact on practice. Both consoles will use an SSD as a storage device and must have the same amount of RAM.

According to rumors raised by youtuber HipHopGamer, the PS5 may be compatible with even PS1 games. Sony has not yet confirmed the information, but at least PS4 games, the new console will be able to run.
The new Xbox will also be compatible with previous-generation games, which puts the two devices on a level playing field, generating a very low migration rate between platforms.
As the market is unlikely to change, and PS is already a leader in the gaming segment, this leadership must be maintained.
Microsoft has said it intends to correct "past mistakes" and offer the new Xbox at a more affordable price. Anyway, the PS5 should hit the market costing a little less, according to forecasts by some analysts.
