Xbox Series X has a “plan that can win” against the PS5, Xbox head Phil Spencer told IGN.
~Phil Spencer.We took a holistic view on our platform from CPU to GPU to RAM to throughput velocity architecture, latency, back combat – it took us years to get to this point.
Spencer’s statements come after a PS5 reveal by Sony.
Spencer also praised Sony for its upcoming specs.I felt really good about how [Xbox] Series X lines up. When we finally saw the public disclosure, I felt even better about the choices that we made on our platform and I kind of expected that I would.
Last month, we compared the Xbox Series X with the PS5, concluding that the Series X is more powerful of the pair. As a result, it's likely that the Series X will cost more.I think Mark [Cerny of Sony] and the team did some really good work on the audio processing that they’ve talked about and their SSD technology is impressive, we like that, we saw the work that they did.
Xbox Series X and PS5 are expected in holiday 2020.I believe we have a plan that can win. We’ve got to go execute, but I feel really good about the plan that we’ve put together.
