Throughout this quarantine, it was announced that the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X would be available for purchase on November 12, 2020.

Many people had already put in a pre-order for both consoles back in September, but what wasn’t expected was the high amount of orders that caused the consoles to sell out in minutes.

The PlayStation 5 will be standing vertically, unlike the past models where they are horizontally, and its new design will have a sleek white color that matches with the controller. There will be two different versions of the PlayStation 5. One will be a complete digital version, which is being sold for $399, so people will only be able to purchase in-store games. The other will be the standard version, which will have the option to have games digitally and through a disc.

The Xbox Series X has been released with a new design as well. Instead of the traditional horizontal console, the creators of the Xbox Series X have designed it to have a rectangular shape and by having it be vertical. It will be known for its performance and speed, and it will be available for $499. The wireless controller has also been upgraded in design and performance, so many fans are looking forwards to the console.

Fans of both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X can be agree that these new generational consoles are something to keep an eye out for. Many are still waiting for the restocks to come out, but when the consoles become more available as time passes, most will be able to check out the new graphics that both games have to offer.
