Xbox Scorpio Reportedly Provokes Sony to Release PS5; Microsoft Xbox Two Planned for 2020

Xbox Scorpio has reportedly provoked Sony to release PS5 to counter the rival. Sony has the plan to release PS5 in two versions and a VR Headset. Because of speculations about the Sony’s most powerful console plans, Microsoft is all set up to give a very hard time to the rival. The company is prepping for a mega Xbox Two launch in 2020.

With this news, a new hype about the Scorpio Project has started among the tech circles on the web. This supposedly is the key element that forced Sony to start working on the idea of a powerful console PS5 to counter the Microsoft’s new and powerful console claims. According to Global Industry tech analyst Michael Pachter, Sony will not be releasing the Console in near future. Not specifically in 2017 or 2018. This was reported by PlayStation Universe on their blog.

Pachter further states that Sony follows a 3-year release pattern for its consoles, so there is a chance that Sony will release PlayStation 5 in 2019. That’s maybe a long time before the release of Xbox Two console. According to Sony’s 3-year console release pattern, the PS5 will release in 2019, in a manner similar to any of the Sony’s previous console releases.

Sony’s PS5 will definitely be more powerful than any of the previous consoles. This will be because of more innovative technology, and Two Console versions, and a VR Headset, Korea Portal Explains.

It is also speculated that Sony will be offering far more space than before as they have plans to include a 50 TB Solid State Hard Drive in the Console. It will also support the 4K resolution and will debut as one of the most powerful gaming consoles in 2020.

Microsoft Is Ready To Tackle the PS5 With The New Xbox Two Consoles.

This is a stunningly surprising move by the tech giants such as Microsoft and Sony. It’ll definitely be a great leap forward for all the high-end console gamers and customers. As the race has started, Microsoft is also planning to launch a powerful console Xbox Two. They have reportedly started working on the Console and will be releasing it in 2020, GamePur report suggests.

The powerful Xbox Two will support 4K resolutions and will come with a backward compatibility with the popular Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles games. Xbox Two will also be a Virtual Reality supporting console and it will offer access to Microsoft’s Hololense.

This is definitely a great news for all those who love innovation and are always ready to try new gadgets. But to lend their hands on the consoles, they will have to wait until 2020 as none of the consoles is coming out earlier. Hopefully, both of these consoles will be as brilliant as all the other ones from both of the tech giants.

    Did you just invalidate everything in the article by stating that the XBOX One S is the same thing as Scorpio in your first sentence? o_0

  • Billy

    This entire article is bull $#!#, first off it is Xbox nor Microsoft would ever, have such blatant disregard for gamers by attacking in such a manner. Now Xbox itself has said that they don’t make consoles as a response to other consoles, true or not don’t matter but if they say that why would they offer another console the opportunity to do just as they know it is wrong to do

  • debbie downer

    “plans to include a 50 TB Solid State Hard Drive in the Console” 50??

    • Billy

      Do you have any idea on how much that drive would cost, 50tb ssd even at retail, this would cost more than the entire system.

      I can see a 4tb hybrid but I don’t see anything going in it over 4tb even a 4tb ssd would cost to much for a console even an “premium” console like the Scorpio.

    It looks like Sony fanboys are nervous.

    • Revolver Ocelot

      This is an analyst guessing, Simple_Annie, not a fanboy. Stay desperate, sweetie. 🙂

      • Evil_Annie_2015

        Definitely, the Sony fanboys are nervous and desperate. You better learn how to play checkers if you sit less than 5 ft closer to your TV…lol

        • Revolver Ocelot

          It’s an analyst, Simple_Annie. You sure are dumb for an Xbox cockroach. Probably because you only repeat what your ex-boyfriend told you what to think. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            An analyst that tells you what you want to hear. I thought Cerny’s secret sauce was 8 tflops ..:)

          • Billy

            I don’t Care for Analyst non of them, most of them don’t do just gaming and you have to understand the difference in gaming and PC hardware and the difference in gaming on each system, to be honest analyst, anyone that goes to school or has a full time job, just don’t have the time. I am retired and paralyzed and sometimes I miss a difference here and there, but I pride myself at learning each system, and debating each one with an open mind.
            I don’t see any gamers being nervous about their system, be it Xbox or PS they don’t change consoles enough for Consoles Devs to compete for them, what they do compete for is new gamers, those who have not picked a system. I know gamers who have changed but it is rare, I have allot of friends on PS and Xbox and though the years I have only seen a few go from one list to the other.
            I don’t see why we have to defend our systems either, we prefer a system so why should we have to defend what we prefer, it is all opinion anyway, unless you want to talk about hardware capability, or potential hardware capability then we can do fact. One is not better than the other (“better” hate using it at all it is so subjective) and then gamers go to so called exclusives, you cant compare games from one system to the other, nor would any gamer trade one set for the other set, if you like PS exclusives then your not going to trade them for Xbox’s, if you like Xbox exclusives then your not going to trade them for PS’s no matter the amount.

            Now yes the Pro could run at more than the 4.2tf it runs but it will bottleneck because it just don’t have the ram, it is running 218 now, and with the boost it can run a bit higher. Now here is the real issue the boost is not compatible with all games, it says it in the update, and that if the game don’t run then turn it off so the Pro runs as a PS4. See this is a big issue if you buy a Pro for the extra speed (because we all know it has issue with 4K even at 30fps) then with the new firmware you have to negate that speed to run some of your games. Why is this I wonder could it be that PS, because they don’t ever do backwards compatible games, don’t know how to increase speed/power while keeping games running that need less power/speed. I love my Pro but I think PS has gotten lazy because the PS4 put them on top for a while, I know Xbox was lazy when the put out the specs for the Xbox One, so being objective now, I see PS going down hill a bit, and they need to fix their firmware of the Pro before they make the PS5. If and when the make the PS5 we will lose all of our games on PS, to where Xbox is keeping theirs and basically getting a new Generation Console.

            More to the Pro’s capabilities. I have built a 6tf PC and played with the gb/s to see how low I can get it while keeping 4K@60fps, this can be done easily with 320gb/s but you can take it down to 256gb/s and still run 4K@60fps locked (now this is with new PC games) and even get more out of the system at 256gb/s. So how much more gb/s can Sony get out of the Pro, if they wanted 6tf they could do it but if they cant get to the min mark for 4K without bottlenecking at the ram, at that min mark say close to that 256gb/s then the Pro just is not going to do 4K at anything but 30fps. The Pro dose have game that can run 4K just the Pro has issues with running them, even at 30fps there are drops and longer loads. Skyrim a beautiful game, and the 4K version amazing it really lets you see the art, no this is 4K not the checkerboarding the Pro runs at 30fps, it drops the frames and it loads forever even has a tendency to load in the middle of nowhere or in battle, and this is without mods, with mods forget about running even the most basic of mod in 4K.

            PS VR, is a great step toward bringing VR to consoles, but once again Sony was sleeping and put a VR headset on the PS4 that is one step up from a phone VR head set. PS VR uses one screen like phone VR, the res is not bad nor is the refresh rate though it could be better, but it uses the PS Eye to function correctly. So PS VR is basically, Phone VR with one outside sensor, so you can turn to look but you cant turn around and with a wire who would want to, anyway it is great for sitting but standing nope, and VR is meant for some movement.

            Another comment on Sony getting to lax, the 4K Blu-ray that never made its way into the Pro, come on Sony owns the tech. Now it would not of been so bad, them leaving it out when the own the tech but Xbox put the 4K Blu-ray in the Xbox One S and the S is far inferior to the Pro, in terms of hardware and capability.

            So are PS gamers Nervous no because the Pro if turned up can compete with day-one Scorpio specs, that is if Sony turns up the Pro, however odds are the Scorpio will have allot more under the hood than just 6tf and 320gb/s. If Xbox wanted the min then 12gb of gddr5 ram would do just a bit more than that, leak says 12gddr5x, I don’t care for leaks, but it would be able to run much faster than 320gb/s. Gddr5 ram runs only at 8n which is 32bits per pin, when gddr5x runs at 8m or 16n being 32 or 64 bits per pin. Then if Xbox wanted to run a min of 6tf then the same chip Sony used in the Pro would be more than enough, but odds are they will use Ryzen as a cpu, even the mid rang Ryzen chips can run 9 to 12tf, now I see Xbox using a mid-high end chip. If the specs are like this then Scorpio will have room to grow. Then if Sony puts out a PS5 I still think the Specs will be close to 10tf and around 450gb/s or so which Scorpio could do with above specs. (not that we know the specs so only speculation)
            Sony just like Xbox is quite secure in their systems, I would worry about Nintendo if I wanted to worry about a console going out of business. PS and Xbox change positions of who has better specs and how has more “exclusives” PS or Xbox/UWP so I see no need to argue, sure we can debate all day long, I love debating but you have to be open to being wrong in debating, if your not then your just arguing.

            Sorry it’s so long

          • Revolver Ocelot

            An analyst that tells you what you fear. The thought must make your blood run cold. There won’t be a PS5 out next year, and anyone reasonable knows that. That’s why you don’t know that. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            “There won’t be a PS5 out next year, and anyone reasonable knows that”

            I’m so disappointed, Sony famboys are not supposed to be reasonable. Have you been getting some kind of treatment to get you out of the PS world? 🙂

          • Revolver Ocelot

            There’s that projection again, Simple_Annie. It’s always been cockroaches like you, CrapGamer and Dealer who have been desperate and delusional. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            It seems that your brief moment of sanity lasted just a few seconds…:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Yeah, it’s a regular thing with you. Just when I think I’ve rammed a nugget of logic down your throat, you’re back to regurgitating the same crap so you can remain the Xbox fangirl your ex-boyfriend made you to be. Shame.

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Considering how poorly crafted your arguments are, I must assume that you had a typo right there at logic; You must have meant illogical…:)

          • Billy

            PS would not put out a PS5 until they have fixed the issues with the Pro. The Pro was going to be the first to do 4K right, but what did we get 4K@30fps dropping fps like breadcrumbs in a fairytale, So no 4K worth bragging about which saddens me and my Pro. Next we have the “boost mode”, if you can even call it that, because it don’t work with all games, the firmware update notes say that it don’t work with all games and should be turned off, so the Pro can operate as a regular PS4. Wait now on the Pro we lose the one thing that was supposed to work correctly, being the power. PS did make a leap in power but for a system to have to change modes to run all its games is well a bit retro at the least and redundant at best. What company (be it PS or Xbox or anyone) would make a consoles for a gen that could not utilize all of that gens hardware and software, what company could not take older less sophisticated games that are optimized for lower-end hardware and run them on higher-end hardware (that is what the PS4 to the Pro is lower to higher) actually that sound like, backward compatibility something Xbox dose all the time, and has promised Xbox Scorpio could do as well. So now we have a piece of hardware, the Pro, who can run much faster than 4.2TF, however cant run much faster than 218gb/s which could do 4K@30fps if they really wanted to, but now they are limited by their OS not running all games efficiently in all modes. The Pro has no real 4K not even @30fps, not using all its power, and cant even run all its games at the power it has, without having to change modes bringing it down from 4.2tf to 1.84tf. If a PS5 was announced before the issues with the Pro are fixed it would basically be like saying we cant fix this console because we don’t know how. I cant wait for a PS5 but Project Scorpio is still an Xbox One, so Xbox could always say hey here is what we are doing with Xbox Two (or what ever they are going to call it) arguing about who has more power is a circular argument, the Pro has more power now, with Scorpio expecting to have more when it releases, that is just a fact. I will guess that even if PS announced a PS5 it would still be 2 or 3 years give or take a few month, but because of the issues with the Pro and the Pro’s release date, releasing a new console will just look like PS trying to One-Up (and they wont do that because would open to many cans of worms) the other consoles. Once the Pro is fixed, once they see how Project Scorpio dose, and once some time has passed (because of the fall release of the Pro) then they will announce the PS5, then some will say more about power and then we will loose all of our games, our “exclusives” that so many are fond of bragging about. I hope PS/Sony uses their brains and fix what they have first, mostly because they never give continued support for old hardware, just like they never give older games a chance on new hardware, making a PS5 now would be a major mistake, until they know exactly what Project Scorpio is capable of.

            No, that’s just your failed reading comprehension again, Simple_Annie. You’ll get it one day, sweetie. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            See? I pity your mental limitations caused by being a Sony fanboy and you get angry with me. You are very rude..:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            There’s your failed reading comprehension again, Simple_Annie! It wasn’t anger, it was bemused mirth watching you keep digging your own grave, sweetie. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Don’t worry, you have demonstrated that living an an alternate universe was all the happiness you needed…:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            More projection from Simple_Annie. It’s always amusing, sweetie. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            If it was projection you would not be a Sony fanboy..:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            If you were intelligent you wouldn’t be an Xbox cockroach. Oh yeah! You repeat what your ex-boyfriend drummed into you. Never mind. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Why are you so upset for being called a Sony fanboy? 🙂

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Haha, that really stung you, didn’t it? Your reading comprehension has gone for a burton today, Simple_Annie. You’re a joke, and the whole world is laughing at you. Just because you want your ex-boyfriend to come back and fill your head with stupidities again. Hehe! 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Don’t worry I would be upset as well if someone called me a Sony fanboy/girl which is the most primitive form of what a corporate slave is….:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Simple_Annie with her ignorance and projection again. You’re a joke, and the whole world is laughing at you. Just because you want your ex-boyfriend to come back and fill your head with stupidities again. Hehe! 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Definitely, Sony Fanboy = Corporate Slave….hehe

          • Revolver Ocelot

            And the Xbox cockroach is a stain on humanity. Just got to look at Quatman and Dealer for confirmation of that. Oh, and you, sweetie. Hehe! 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            It looks like the truth hurts, but don’t worry maybe this year PSN can have another price increase so you can celebrate it as a great “move” by Sony…..:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            If that did happen, you wouldn’t figure it out for weeks because you can’t track how much either are in relation to each other. Dumb little Xbox cockroach. 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            I’m so nice to bring some happiness to your PS world(where PS fanboys get ripped by Sony and they Celebrate) and you get angry with me for that?….:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Already got tons of happiness with all these great games and features to enjoy. It’s OK, Simple_Annie, maybe Uncle Phil will drip feed you screenshots of an OG Xbox remaster that’s still only 30fps on the Xbone. Wow…so this…is the power…of DirectX…12… 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Well, then you should battle the apple fans since they also have tons of cheap mobile games because when it comes to AAAs all you have for this year is HZD vs FIVE MS’s exclusive AAAs….:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Cheap mobile games like Fallout Shelter and Halo Spartan Assault. Of course, it’s OK when MS actually does it, isn’t it, Simple_Annie? You can tell yourself they’re AAA when it sinks in that Halo Wars 2 and Sea of Thieves isn’t, sweetie. Hehe! 🙂

          • Evil_Annie_2015

            Well, Fallout shelter is just a little example of things to come with the UWA. However, that game was just like a demo from Bethesda and it was FREE! Unlike those cheap japanese games Yoshida is selling you for $60. In fact, I can see why all of a sudden all Sony fanboys own a “powerful” PC since those games don’t need anything beyond a first generation Pentium and a CRT monitor…:)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Yeah, years-old mobile games on your sad little movie player. Xbox won! It’s OK, maybe one day you’ll get a game with the depth of GR2 and Nioh but until then you’ll have to do with those mobile scraps. 🙂

    • Billy

      Xbox would never antagonize Sony, they are above that, well ok they would never do it outright like that. I can see them doing their best and then give a general remark about seeing if someone could do better or something along those lines, but the truth of the matter is Xbox a division of Microsoft the world leader in New Tech both in Software and Hardware could put out something no one else could get close to the only issue would be cost, how much would a console with all new high end tech cost. I don’t see Scorpio as that until we know what the specs are, and even then just going with a min of what they need for those specs they have given us is not the best they could do.

  • Revolver Ocelot

    Xbox cockroaches aren’t taking their fledgling “advantage” being overhyped with any dignity.

    50 TB SSD drive? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. OMG that was funny.

    • Billy

      I don’t know where that is coming from, it is the second time I have see someone say something about a 50TB SSD but I don’t think who ever stated it realizes exactly how much a SSD compares to a Hybrid or to a regular hard drive. Anyway it is floating around that Scorpio will have a large SSD, but it is not very cost effective and even for the extra speed a SSD gives (which is marginal for gaming) I don’t see them using it. I can see a Hybrid but not a SSD, with that said I know Xbox and Windows both have been working on SSD in combination with another drive, first example was the 8gb SSD in the Xbox One, not really enough to do very much with but if a system kept its OS and information that dose not change very often on the SSD and then saved data on a different hard drive then it could speed up changing between games and apps, but would not change the speed of a game, nor how that games functions, it could though cut down on initial load, not enough to warrant a SSD though.

      • jp

        yeah, I switched from a regular X1 to an Elite and man, that HD does make a difference but like you said only in the loading side of business all the rest is the same, the consoles does feel faster and more responsive though.
