Why PS5 or Xbox Series X will not be available until 2022

One reader is enjoying the console launch so much, but the PS5 and Xbox Series X for several years.

I have been there. I saw it all.

First, I had an adapter for playing Japanese SNES games on my UK console. I didn’t realize that the console would explode if I accidentally inserted the cartridge. Next was the Sony PlayStation. Inadequate placement of the power supply there caused the rails holding the CD laser to warm up, distorting the plastic and skipping the CD. I used the console upside down to get it working properly.

I bought the PlayStation 2 for the same price as a standalone DVD player, so I didn’t know that when I used an RGB cable for the best image quality, all the movies would appear in green. I didn’t know that Sega would drop it overnight, so I bought a Dreamcast. I bought an Xbox 360 and suffered 6 times from the Red Ring of Death.

And what do you know? I do not mind. Each of these devices brought me something I didn’t have before. SNES gave me Contra3, but it’s still the best “n” gun game in any format. The PlayStation brought me a Ridge Racer. PlayStation 2 surprised me with Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City.

Dreamcast’s short life, along with Shenmue, Crazy Taxi and Lesbian, represents the golden age of the game. At Metropolis Street Racer, I was aware of my workplace and drove past the street. The Xbox 360 is still my favorite console with broadband-based multiplayer, perfect conversion of classic arcade titles, and games that still hold up today.

So now I’m facing a choice. Would you like to buy a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X? Or, of course, face the fact that it ends up with both, I always do. But it reminds me of past console generations. Each generation introduced a new game that they desperately wanted to play with graphics, performance, and gameplay that wasn’t possible with previous hardware.

As the owner of the Amiga, I remember how much the PlayStation Ridge Racer surprised me. How did you get lost in the open world of Shenmue? How the PlayStation VR AstroBot made me feel like a kid again. I love the feeling that a new generation of technology brings.

And I’m reading how great these new consoles are. On internet forums, we see excited players reporting short load times. Especially in 4K on ultra-high-tech TVs, smooth 60 frames per second gameplay surprises players. It’s the best time to live.

Next, look over Sony’s 55-inch TV. The 1080p image quality is incredible. I am happy with it and want to keep it. And there is Spider-Man on PlayStation 4, which looks beautiful. It can take up to 30 seconds to load, but it’s blocked and you’re not in a hurry. And Titanfall 2 is still the best shooter and is already working beautifully. And I didn’t like Devil May Cry so much. The new game looks like a shiny and sophisticated version of the game I’m already playing. (Ridge Racer) Where is the Revolution?

For the first time since I started the game, I am satisfied with what I have. Eventually I will buy both new consoles, but now I want others to try them first. They find hardware flaws and allow manufacturers to modify their designs, make them smaller, quieter, make their hard drives bigger, and pull out more games. In fact, I’m really looking forward to this next generation. This will probably start around the beginning of 2022.
