Should we fall for the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X?
Seven years.The Xbox One and Playstation 4 game consoles have already tumbled down to seven years.If I would then admit to leaning in favor of the Microsoft machine, it is Sony's rival that has amply won the hearts of the French.(with more than six million PS4s sold), establishing itself as the most used console on televisions in the country.Beyond the prognosis, the American has especially lost the players by betting too much on the multimedia component, letting go some nuggets from its competitor, and by not taking enough care of its "box X".
A lost battle, but not the war, wants to believe Microsoft, which markets Tuesday, November 10 a whole new console, baptized “Xbox Series X” (as well as a light version, entitled “Xbox Series S”).His Japanese rival is not left out as he also launches, on November 19, a new machine, simply named “PlayStation 5” (also available in a lighter version, called “Digital Edition”).
These two new flagships land in full containment, while specialized stores are closed because they are deemed non-essential, and even though two thirds of French people consider “video games as a positive activity” in this particular context, according to a study from the Syndicate of leisure software publishers (Sell)."Video games are essential during confinement"
Enough to arouse enthusiasm and impatience among the 36.5 million French players - whose average age is now 40.Will they rush to these new Xbox and PS5? The explosion of pre-orders already suggests so, but then, which one to fall for? Verdict.
