Ps5 versus pc specs
For our console game players, 2020 will be a very exciting time. We have two next-gen game consoles in full swing with PS5 and Xbox 2 (or should we be Xbox Series X) and the new Google Stadia game streaming platform. However, since the three have many similarities, how do we choose the one that suits us best? Of course, you can go ahead and master all three. But for those of us who didn't win this week, let's dive into a few details to help you settle the score once and for all in the PS5 showdown. Xbox 2 vs. Google Stadium, let's do this.
Since we have not yet confirmed the price points of all next-generation consoles, we have to make some guesses here. We all know the pain of having to pay large sums of money for new game consoles, which is why Google Stadia is so attractive to many people. The Founder's Edition launched in November 2019 is priced at only £119, including a three-month subscription to its Stadia Pro service. After version
Base is released in 2020, you will not need to subscribe to Stadio Pro to play. Instead, you only pay for the games you want to play; for example, this is very similar to having a PS4 without PS Plus.
Taking into account the two versions of Google Stadia, let's see how the price compares with the forecasts of PS5 and Xbox 2. Since the average useful life of the console is approximately 7 years, we will compare how the costs have accumulated during this period.
Although Google Stadia may seem cheaper at first glance, once you look at the annual subscription fees compared to PS5 and Xbox 2, the costs seem to stabilize over time. And since you really need a PS Plus or Xbox Live subscription to be able to play with friends and access the content you want, this is worth considering.
Of course, the price of the annual subscription can fluctuate over time, but all three services are likely to change at a similar level.
Finally, while you may not have to pay anything for the Google Stadia Base version, you still have to buy the games you want to play on it. Also, with the price of many games now over $ 50, the cost will continue to increase very rapidly.
Since PS5 and Xbox 2 are rugged gaming consoles, their hardware will not change during their life cycle. However, if they release some kind of "Pro" version within a few years of their existence, like previous generations, we won't be surprised at all.
On the other hand, Google Stadia can be changed at any time as needed to keep up with evolving technology. However, like the Base version, you don't have to pay anything, which means that you will only get a very basic level of specs; after all, you get what you pay for.
PS5 and Xbox 2 stated that they will provide 8K capabilities when released. Stadia will only have 4K when it launches later this year, but when the Base version comes out, it will be updated to match its competitors. This is the beauty of Stadia, even if Sony and Microsoft release the "Pro" version in the future, it can be updated continuously to stay in the game.
Of course, a big selling point of Google Stadia is that you can use it to stream games on any screen, from tablets to TVs to smartphones. However, all of this largely depends on your connection strength and Internet speed.
Since the game will run at 60fps, which is much higher than streaming media like Netflix, if you use a smartphone, you need a stable internet connection or an unlimited data plan. For example, at 720p, you watch about 4.5GB of streaming media per hour, and up to 9GB at 1080p, if you want to stream media in 4K, you will use 15.75GB per hour.
Although their system means you can enter the game in just five minutes, if you find that you don't have the Internet, you won't be able to play the game at all. PS5 and Xbox 2 will not have the same problem. Although some of its features depend on the Internet connection, once you download or purchase the game, you can play it at any time.
Let's be honest, for many of us, the most important factor in deciding which console to buy is the games we can play on these consoles. Although most AAA games are now released on different platforms, there will always be exclusive games for you to invest in specific consoles. So what games will be released on a platform next year?
Microsoft has announced that Halo Infinite will launch with the Xbox 2 launch in late 2020. Attaching the next headline in such a large series to its launch will definitely help boost sales figures. PC gamers will be able to master this too, but PS5 and Stadia users won't be able to satisfy it.
Although we don't have a release date for this game yet, it will be exclusive to Playstation, and
is just like the first one. Games like "Death Stranding" dominate the big release points in 2019, and "Cyberpunk 2077" will be released in early 2020. For us, Naughty Dog will postpone the release of "The Last of Us Part Two" until it makes sense for PS5. to be released later in 2020. And, after the success of the first game,
However, you can still play some of the bigger new versions there, such as Cyberpunk 2077, WatchDogs Legion, and Mortal Kombat 11. However, if there are no exclusive game giveaways, only time will tell if they can properly attract buyers.
Anyone who pays for premium subscription services on PS4 or Xbox One will know that these subscriptions will provide free games for you to download and save every month. This is really why it is worth spending cash to play online with your friends. We can assume that both Sony and Microsoft will continue this service on their next-gen consoles and only need to update the provided games to run on the appropriate consoles.
What we don't know is whether the subscription service will continue to provide the previous generation of games or just the latest game models. Considering that Xbox 2 and PS5 will be backward compatible to some extent, I think they will continue to release old games and may release new versions at the same time.
Google Stadia stated that they would "give about one free game every month, whether it is given or accepted", which did not fill me with confidence. I am one of those people who like to know exactly what they pay. But maybe it's just me. However, only one game is launched every month, and they offer far lower prices than Sony or Microsoft, and the prices are much higher.
Speaking of backward compatibility, this has always been a hot topic discussed every time a new console is released. We now know that PS5 will be backward compatible until the end. You will be able to play those ancient and forgotten classic PS1 games on this next-generation console; winner.
Xbox also announced backward compatibility, but it did so in an unconventional way. We're not sure how far this compatibility will go, even if it applies to all previous games.
Since Google Stadia is a new console, there is no need to worry about backward compatibility. However, with its ability to continually update software and features, the game you buy today is likely to be played forever throughout the game's platform lifecycle.
Well, this is very subjective. I voted for PS5 and the others in the office support Xbox 2. Sadly for Google, no one thinks it will reach the top. Although this is largely due to our collective doubts about how game streaming services actually perform.
I think the best game for you depends on your favorite game, the platform your friends use, and the type of budget you must use.
But I still choose PS5. Sony, my heart will always belong to you. From playing Spice World: Game to the latest Final Fantasy game, I can’t do without you. Chapter
