The other day we published an article about a the PS5 being the better console according to a Crytek Engineer. There was speculation that although the PS5 was slightly less powerful it was the better console because of it’s ease to develop for and how well it all works together compared to the Series X.

The post was eventually removed but it reported that Ali Salehi said the PS5 was the easiest console they have ever coded on to reach it’s full performance and that as a programmer the PS5 is much better and he didn’t think that anyone could find a programmer that would give any advantage to the Series X over the PS5.

Bill Stillwell from the Microsoft Cognition Team formally of Xbox said “I think what you saw [PS5 reveal] was the unfortunate by-product of a GDC talk being turned into a marketing event. I loved Sony’s talk, I think they’ve got some cool tech. I personally think we have a better console, we’re not worried about the power narrative.”

The video linked above full credit to Dealer_Gaming is a two hour stream, it is a very interesting listen so worth watching through if you have enough time.

Again as we have said in every post like this only time will tell, it’s obvious that both consoles will have plenty of power and will come down to what platform the player wants to stick with along with exclusives and maybe even the controller!

We have listed the specs below for anyone interested, what do you all think? Which one will you be going for?
