In a surprising move, but Microsoft and Sony have decided to release two consoles at the start of the next generation, offering a standard and a more affordable version that seeks to attract new and old fans alike.
The Xbox Series S and the PS 5 Digital Edition are two interesting pieces of hardware, as each device carries its own features and are a worthy alternative to more expensive models. Below you can find a brief comparison of the two gaming consoles.
Specs are an important part of the equation since they determine what games can be played by a console. The CPU sported by the Xbox Series X might be a bit stronger, but the other components, including GPU, RAM, and storage capacity, are a bit weaker, a trait that could limit the performance in the case of more demanding title.
While the overall specs might be weaker Microsoft enjoys an advantage when the price tag is mention, as the Xbox Series S will be available for $299, while Sony wants $399 for he PS5 Digital Edition. Those who aren’t interested in maximum performance or don’t wish to invest in a 4K TV will love the lower entry fee.
At this point, both the PS5 Digital Edition and the Xbox Series S can play any game that was designed for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. The only major difference is made by platform-exclusive titles.
The only significant difference between the PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition is represented by the presence of a disc drive in the case of the former. As such, the Digital Edition is aimed at users who are no longer interested in discs. On the other hand, the Xbox Series S is aimed at casual fans who don’t care about the power or price tag of an Xbox Series X.
For now, its hard to say which console will be more successful, as both are great and a solid choice for many gamers.
