For the most part, estimates are that the PlayStation and the next Xbox will debut in 2020 because, despite the increase in hardware sales, the industry needs a generation change and the fact that both the PS4 and Xbox One are displayed, in some of their titles. , indicating that the maximum possible performance has been achieved. However, some sectors consider that a favorable market environment can cause the next console to arrive until 2021 and Michael Pachter talks about it.
When interviewing with GamingboltMichael Pachter, analyst at Wedbush Securities, was approached about a version showing that the next two PlayStations, such as the new Xbox, will debut until 2021 given the favorable trends in PS4 sales and the rebound that seems to have the Xbox One at the time. from receiving a good Xbox Game Pass. In this case, Pachter considers that this will not change the company's plans and estimates that it will occur in 2020 when the players receive a new generation of consoles. However, analysts prefer to concentrate on what will happen to the current generation and assume that, in the end, the two hardware proposals will begin the same year: "I think what will be more interesting is what will happen with this generation of consoles Historically, Microsoft has reduced production of previous consoles shortly after the new launch and Sony has done the opposite, because it has been maintaining production consoles for a while, even up to 3 years apart from the world and they think they can still sell between 20 and 30 million consoles in Africa, Asia, Latin America and developing countries in Europe, so I think they will keep the PS4 alive at a price of $ 149 USD or something like that the following year. "
On the other hand, Pachter said, even though companies are considering their next console based on their specificity, the PS3 and Xbox 360 situation will not be repeated, because it will provide an advantage that can be irreversible in the future: "Microsoft tends to think of the Xbox Two, or what the name will be very strong and want to sell all of these consoles and not the Xbox One. It will be interesting to see, but no, I don't think they are delayed until 2021. Microsoft doesn't work very well with Xbox One, delaying the next Xbox launch and if Sony does the mistake of waiting until 2021, Microsoft will benefit, that's what happened with the Xbox 360. Sony won't let them have an edge in this opportunity. "
What do you think about Michael Pachter's statement? Will 2020 be the year in which we will see the new PlayStation and the new Xbox?
