Ligegyldig hvordan man vender og drejer det, så er Sony den klokkeklare vinder af denne konsolgenration, med langt over dobbelt så mange solgte konsoller som Xbox One. Dog plejer historien at bestemme, at den foregående vinder vil have svært ved at fastholde tempoet ind i den næste generation, så bliver det tilfældet her?
I et interview med GamesBeat siger tidligere PlayStation-chef Jack Tretton, at det ikke bare er Microsoft Sony skal op imod, når næste generation starter til næste efterår, men at de snart vil se konkurrence fra nye leder og kanter.
"I think they're very well-positioned. The leader of the prior generation is always in a good position going into the new generation. From what I've read about the specs of PlayStation 5, it sounds impressive. Their business model obviously worked well for them the last time around, and it doesn't look like they're going to deviate from that. They'll be well-positioned. But I do think they'll face exponentially more competition than they did the last time around."
"Microsoft should give them a better run for their money, and Stadia is a new wrinkle in the market that didn't exist in 2013. Nintendo is more relevant this time around. It's going to be a much more competitive market. There are new players. But they've learned some valuable lessons in this generation. It should be great for everyone in the business, whether you're a developer or a gamer. It's going to keep everyone on their toes."
Tror du at Microsoft vil vende den næste generation på hovedet, og sætte sig på tronen? De har positioneret sig ganske anderledes med xCloud og Game Pass.
