A Few Weeks to Go Before the Beginning of a New Gaming Era

Published

on

It is almost decision time for gamers from all over the world, as we move closer to the official release of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and as the pre-ordering period for the first consoles is running out. Thousands have already placed their order for the console of the preference, and countless others are stuck on priorities queues for the next shipments of Xboxes and PlayStations. Sony and Microsoft have gone “all-in”, creating powerful gaming consoles that are expected to generate billions in revenue. The release of these two consoles will signal the beginning of the ninth generation of gaming.

Anticipation is building up, and players are trying to find ways to keep their minds off of having to wait until the day they get their hands on a ninth-gen device. Some spend their time reading books and playing old games, while others are looking for more enjoyable alternatives such as trying the services of websites offering online roulette for players located in Canada. Casino slot and table games have after all been a great way to spend some quality time while being online. Having to wait for something you are really looking forward to happen is never easy, and it is therefore important to explore options that can help you relax and blow off some steam.

The release of ninth-generation consoles will bring several new titles to the world of gaming, but it will also allow gamers to play games they already own in ninth-gen standards. For example, PlayStation 5 owners will have the opportunity to play enhanced versions of PS4 games they already own. If you already own the game for a PS4, then you will get the chance to play the PS5 version at no extra cost. This applies to both physical and digital copies of the games, so you do not have to worry if you have already bought a PS4 copy of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Cyberpunk 2077. This is not exactly the case for Xbox Series X titles, as 8th generation games will not turn to 9th generation games automatically. However, there will still be some improvements in processing speed and overall performance. Either way, previous-generation game performance will probably not be something that gamers will look for in the long run.

Tradition is important for most players, and it is definitely something that will drive consumers towards buying one console and not the other. Players who have owned PlayStations all their lives will probably stick to Sony, and the same applies to Xbox users. In all fairness, both consoles offer more or less the same thing, but deciding on one console or the other is also a matter of what you know and what games you like to play. There are certain exclusive titles that have kept their audiences entertained for years, and they have been a reason for players to buy a console. Many still remember the commercial panic caused by the release of Final Fantasy 7 for the original PlayStation back in 1997. 

Another reason why many players will choose to buy a console is collectability. Both Sony, as well as Microsoft, regularly release limited versions of game-themed consoles, controllers and accessories. The most anticipated limited ninth generation console is, of course, the Spider-Man: Miles Morales edition. Whether Microsoft will counter attack with a limited edition for Xbox Series X or not is still uncertain, but if they want to keep up with the competition, then they will have to come up with something exceptional.
