The battle between Xbox and PlayStation is a never-ending one with fans on both sides eager to declare their machine the superior hardware. At this point in their lifecycle, both PS5 and Xbox Series X are an excellent investment.

Here are what some of the experts take on the two machines:

Tom’s Guide

The Xbox Series X has a slight edge over PlayStation5 when it comes to design, raw power, and backward compatibility, according to Tom’s Guide.

However, the PS5 is the undisputed champion in arguably the most important category, as it boasts a game library, including exclusives, which Xbox simply can’t match right now.

The main determining factor between the two comes down to whether one prefers access to a more comprehensive game subscription service.

Xbox Game Pass can’t be matched simply because of its value, adding to the fact that flagship exclusive land on the very first day.

Meanwhile, if one doesn’t mind buying new games a la carte, then PS5 is an easy winner as its library of exclusives boasts the highest quality.

What Hi-Fi

As per What Hi-Fi’s verdict, the PS5 and Series X represent substantial jumps in power compared to their predecessors.

While the actual gaming performance is so far very similar across machines, the extra next-gen bells and whistles of PS5 give it an edge over Xbox.

In other words, when it comes down to gaming, as it should, the PS5 is the better option by going beyond just the resolution and refresh rate and delivering an overall experience which is truly next-generational.

Gaming Bible

Whether one has the Xbox Series X or the PlayStation 5 or both, an argument can be had for each of their current-gen consoles, according to Gaming Bible.

However, when it comes down to hardware, the PlayStation 5 has a significant edge over the Xbox Series X, despite the Xbox being technically a more powerful unit.

Despite the Series X having a bigger GPU, it appears as though the PS5 is more efficient at utilizing hardware and makes better use of its tad bit smaller GPU.

With more recent and modern games better suiting a smaller yet faster GPU, the PlayStation 5 performs a lot better than its Xbox counterpart.
