This appears to echo what Andrew Reiner has said.

This would not surprise me. The PS4 was 40% more powerful than Xbox One in 2013.

With the direction gaming is going, it hardly matters. Soon the boxes will be gone.

BS and if it is you are going to pay more for a PS5.

Do we even know what the specs are?

Colin has always been biased towards Sony anyways. But as I said before, Specs are not final until near retail release.

Not nearly as soon as you might think.

Phil Spencer said in an interview with Giantbomb that they're planning for Scarlett to not be their last console.

The Nextbox could be 40% more powerful than PS5 and I would still buy PS5. Playstation has had the games I want for 4 generations. Ever since they joined the console space. I expect PS5 to continue the trend.

I am reporting that PC is definitely more powerful than both PS5 and Scarlett.

Both at most will be a cut down 5700 XT, pretty weak to be honest. But emphasis has moved to CPU and a balanced system.

Colin Moriarty is the biggest Sony fanboy to make it into journalism. I suspect hyperbole.

Well, lets see ... Sony + PS4 are AMD's largest custom APU customer (afaik) and, MS has been saying that selling massive amounts of the Xbox box isn't their priority so which customer would you as AMD prefer? I'd go with Sony to guarantee $$$.

I will definitely be getting both Scarlett and PS5 at launch in 2020.

I hope both consoles are as powerful as they can possibly be. For me as always, it comes down to what games I buy for any given platform.

MS doesn't have kinect anymore so if you think if it less powerful it's going to cost more? 🤣

I’ll actually wait and see what the final two consoles actually ship as.

That is never going to happen again.
