There is a reason MS didn’t share numbers.

Wouldn't surprise me. They didn't say the most powerful console like they did with the One X.

I guess those so called "insiders" look a bit stupid now.
You and many others are not remembering well. When they announced Project Scorpio Phil said "We believe it will be the most powerful console". A year later when the announced and showed Xbox One X then Phil did say "the most powerful console ever". There is a lot of misinformation on this and I urge you to go back and watch the Scorpio announcement where Phil said "we believe it will be the most powerful console". At the time of Scorpio's reveal the PS4 PRO was not announced, so I think that is why Phil said "We believe". A year later when the "X" was finally shown they changed it to "it is the most powerful" since they already knew about the PRO etc.

This feels like a controlled leak by Xbox to get PlayStation fans hopes up

I was waiting for Microsoft to say it would be the most powerful console ever but they didn't which means it's possible.
How on earth can they claim that their piece of plastic releasing in 18 months will be more powerful than someone else’s piece of plastic in 18 months?

They could claim the X was most powerful because it was factually correct. Final specs won’t even be locked in yet.

I wouldn't be shocked. MS can set a high end goal for themselves, but they can't predict if it's higher than the goal Sony set out to do.

I always took it as more of a mission statement than anything.

I think Xbox will have the power edge next gen, and will start to catch up with exclusives but still be edged out by PS. Which is great, PS needs something hot on its tail to keep it going. Like it did this gen/

Having more power didn’t matter last gen...or the gen before that....or the gen before that.


No sure why it will matter next gen?

power isn't as important as the games to deliver the next gen sizzle to sway people to their platform

I really need Microsoft to pull it together because I'm not trying to game on a dual shock but I'll go where the most power console wise

I doubt it.

Also, we're a year and a half away from launch. Neither MS or Sony will be claiming hardware superiority this early on.

is it two skus and that's what project scarlett means?

ms wants to have the power edge, so i think they'll know what sony is packing and try to beat it.

I think the bigger problem is Switch getting left behind in the dust, specs of that thing is just bit above last gen but it is a handheld to be fair. It doesn't bode well for AAA ports, it's bad now but will get worse

That would be insane considering all the rumours of Xbox being way more powerful.
There was very little to those rumours. It was mostly journalists who cover MS, and leakers who are clearly very close to MS, talking about MS aiming to have the most powerful console, and games of telephone with Phil Spencer's comments last year.

I think in the end they're going to probably be close along most dimensions or metrics. Which I think for Sony would be a win, given the last year of narrative of a different scenario.

Stop these bullshit rumors, Both Xbox 2 and PS5 will be in development for at least another year until they get mass produced and it's almost solely up to AMD to determine their output. Phil talked about 4 times the Xbox One X performance, which already sounds very promising.

Remember Sony were going with 4GB of ram till late in the game.

Until next year things can change.

Nintendo has survived for years on their own output. Perhaps Xcloud or Stadia will come.

Worst case scenario they just go back to business as usual with no major third party support.
