The new XBOX series X and PS5 come out–which should you choose?

It has been seven years since the two mainstream gaming consoles, PS4 and XBOX One, have been released. In place, the PS5 and XBOX Series X released on November 12, marking a major day for the gaming industry. On opening day, each console sold almost two million units. The video game industry has reached its record profit for 2020 in this past week.

Here are the pros and cons of each console so you can decide which to get:

Only you can decide which is the better console for your personal interests, but the common upside of the new releases is the fact that numerous new video games have been put out to appear on the new consoles. Popular ones include NBA 2K21: Next Gen, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Mortal Kombat 11, Watch Dogs Legion (my personal favorite so far), and the platforms’ biggest release yet, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Some highly anticipated games coming out later in the year include Cyberpunk 2077, Far Cry 6, and Hitman 3. All these newly released video games and consoles will be available via online ordering and in-store pickups through Best Buy, Target, Gamestop, or Walmart.
