Xbox One X Is an 8.5 Generation Console, PS4 Pro Is A Marketing Gimmick IDC Analyst

Gaming News

The PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X are conceptually very similar systems- functionally, too, they are equal, because even though the Xbox One X hardware is far more powerful than the PS4 Pro’s hardware is, the simple fact of the matter is that both, Microsoft and Sony have mandated that these new consoles need to be tethered to their base SKUs (the PS4 and Xbox One respectively)- in other words, developers can’t make Pro or One X exclusive games. At best they can embellish existing games on the new platforms. What this means, then, is that even while the Xbox One X’s hard specs and performance are far better than the PS4 Pro’s, I don’t think there is that much of a difference to the end consumer. However, it seems like Lewis Ward, IDC’s Research Director, Gaming and VR/AR, does not.
