Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X may not have a successor, Say Analysts



The average life cycle of a gaming console is 6 to 7 years and recently both Microsoft and Sony have launched their gaming consoles. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Sony’s PS5 both consoles are coming with the latest enhancements like ray tracing and 4K resolution. The price of both next-gen gaming consoles is quite expensive and at the same, the demand for them is also higher. Seeing the huge demand for gaming consoles both Microsoft and Sony would like to launch their successor but will it happen? If cloud gaming services get a brawny development then neither the PS5 successor nor the Xbox Series X successor will be seen.

Right now the cloud gaming services like Google Stedia and Apple Arcade not too efficient to challenge the next-gen gaming consoles but in the coming seven years things can be changed. The performance of the cloud gaming services along with the number of games can be improved in the upcoming years and thus these services can compete with the gaming consoles.

Not only that, according to the report, cloud gaming services will have the traditional advantage in flexibility as they can be played on a smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop. Based on such conclusions, analysts at Citi Securities Japan have assumed that the PlayStation 6 may no longer appear and users will simply get used to cloud gaming services. If that happens, they will no longer need an extra highly specialised gaming device physically.

Recently Sony revealed that the PlayStation 5 consoles will be launched on 12 November in the US, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, while the rest of the world will have to wait till 19 November to get their hands on the console. India too will start receiving it from 19 November.

Meanwhile, Xbox Series X and Series S – have officially launched in India and are priced starting Rs 34,990. They are available across Amazon, Flipkart and Reliance Digital, and some offline retailers.
