Sony’s PS5 is coming, but it’ll not compete with Xbox Scorpio

Michael Pachter just stated that PS5 is likely on the horizon, but that Sony is not looking to compete with the Xbox Scorpio Project.

This makes sense, given that the PS4 is already miles ahead of the Xbox One.

Pachter’s line of reasoning involves backwards compatibility.  Just as every PS4 Pro game needs to be compatible with PS4, he reckons every Scorpio game will need to be compatible with Xbox One.  “I think that very few games will support Xbox One Scorpio at launch,” Pachter states, adding “The games that support PS4 Pro will definitely support Scorpio, and they may not even run at 4K.”

Given that, the games will offer superior performance, but they will also feature backwards compatibility.  So that means that with Scorpio, Microsoft is probably not replacing the Xbox One, but rather providing an upgrade to it.

That in turn means that Sony is unlikely to produce  PS5 in 2018.  Pachter says, “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.”

If anything, Scorpio is likely being created to compete with the existing PS4.  That’s how behind Microsoft still is in terms of technological sophistication.  When PS5 does come along, it will doubtless be ­­light-years beyond Scorpio.
