However, with all this feature one thing to be noted will be its competition with PS5. Consumers might think which one will be the best for them. The Xbox Series X is from Microsoft and PS5 is from Sony. Both are very promising brands. Isn’t it? PS5 is white, slender and curvy and the Xbox Series X is a boxy black tower. PS5 includes games such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Hitman 3 and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart.
The interesting change given to the Xbox Series X controller is a prominent share button in the centre of the controller to send content to friends, which is much similar to Sony introduced with the PS4’s DualShock 4. In PS5 there is minimum outward change to the controller with flashy white colorway notwithstanding. There is a glow now simply emerging from below the slightly larger touchpad. There are small changes to the angles of the triggers and the grip which is believed to have improved the feel of the controller.
Xbox series price is yet not revealed. However, the Xbox One was launched at $500 in 2013, so it is possible that price will be somewhat near that.
