When it comes to gaming consoles, Xbox and Playstation are the leaders and also one of the most popular choices among gamers. Ever since the gaming consoles have hit the market, there has always been a trend to offer variants of the console like the Xbox One S after Xbox One or the Playstation Slim after Playstation. The companies have always provided a superior variant of their base variant consoles after a few months.
However, this time it will not be the same and experts do think that this time we will not see a new successor for both the consoles for a long time. The reason behind this is the powerful hardware that both the consoles have. Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X are powerful enough to last for next-generation gaming for the next 6-7 years due to which there would be no need for the companies to add new hardware specs on the existing variant and provide users with a new one.
As per experts, any variant they provide will hardly be an upgrade over the original one due to which the possibility of a successor model does not seem viable. Also, price is another major factor behind the same. Since the new consoles are already expensive, it would not allow better competition and sales for both the companies. Also, since cloud gaming is slowly and steadily catching up to console gaming, the companies might want to explore more on that front rather than simply creating a new console.
