When Playstation 5 is released Sony does not plan to rival with Scorpio or try to match up even though Sony do not want to their footing against Xbox Scorpio according to research analyst Michael Pachter.
There is still a wide edge with Sony being prominent in sale and Microsoft is eager to increase their traction to catch up with this generation with a final trick up their sleeve before the next one get implemented
As most people are most likely to stick to the same systems that their buddy have with the growth of online console gaming, therefore it would require a great update to move things from a console to another in a major way.
Even with an up to date Xbox One, it difficult to comprehend that it would be sufficient to move PS4 player over particularly with the PS5 releasing soon.
The codenamed Scorpio it’s alleged to be competing with the PS4 will be debut in late 2017 just in time for the holidays. Supposedly it going be a refurbished, “fashionable” version of the Xbox One.
Here’s what Michael Pachter has to say on how the upgrade/update patterns will look with the major consoles over the coming years:
“I think Scorpio will have same rules as PS4 Pro- every game made for PS4 Pro has to be fully compatible with PS4. Similarly, every game on Scorpio will have to be backward compatible on Xbox One. So what I think that means is that games will have to run at, say, 1080p and 60fps, but can be upgraded to 4k and 240fps or whatever it will be. But the game will have both on the disc, the hardware will know what file to play, so the Xbox One or PS4 looks for the standard file, while the Pro or Scorpio will pick up the better, faster content. I think that’s what you’ll see, I don’t think that’s a problem, and I think that very few games will support Xbox One Scorpio at launch- the games that support PS4 Pro will definitely support Scorpio, and they may not even run at 4K.”
“‘So games will run better, but they will be backward compatible- Microsoft is not replacing the Xbox One- they are upgrading it. So no, Sony will not come up with more hardware in 2018. You may get a PS5 in 2019 or maybe 2020, and an Xbox Two in 2020, and we will continue to get new consoles every three years, and their software will be compatible with the system released right before it. I think that’s going to be the pattern.”
