In his presentation Todd Howard explained that one of the great advantages of his position is that it allows him to be among the first to know the new hardware prepared by major players in the industry. Thanks to this, for example, he was able to see the possibilities offered by Nintendo Switch before it hit the market, and the same goes for PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
When talking about both consoles, he avoided going deeper into technical issues, but said two very interesting things that we can go deeper into to get more information. The first thing he pointed out is that both Sony and Microsoft are doing things well, and that they will not make launching mistakes.
This leads us to think of the controversy generated by the launch of Xbox One, a console that came indivisibly associated with Kinect and cost 100 dollars more than PS4 despite being less powerful than that. If we put it in relation to Todd Howard's statements the conclusion is clear, Microsoft will have sought a certain parity at the technical level with the new generation console from Sony and will be very careful with the selling price of Xbox Scarlett.
Secondly, the Bethesda executive has said that both consoles are "impressive", and not only because of what they represent at the hardware level, but also because of the business model. The latter is undoubtedly the most important. We know that PS5 and Xbox Scarlett are going to use a Zen 2 processor, a Radeon Navi graphics and they will have more RAM and SSD units, so we can get an idea of the technical leap they are going to mark and the PC they would have as equivalence, but how should we interpret that reference to the business model?
Unfortunately I can speak for sure, but my intuition tells me that it will be related to cloud gaming and the on-demand gaming model, that is, with the idea of offering access to a certain catalogue of games in exchange for a monthly fee.
I remind you that the release of PS5 and Xbox Scarlett is expected in mid-2020. The first will be compatible with PS4 games, and I firmly believe that the same will happen with Xbox Scarlett and Xbox One.
