Last month, several alleged leakers claimed to have information about the Sony PS5 and the Xbox Series X, there is a lot of speculation surrounding the next gen consoles, Microsoft and Sony had been very quiet lately, and due to Coronavirus affecting Asian manufacturers and the imminent rise of flash memory prices, the console developers might opt to extend their silence on what’s inside the next gen devices.
4Chan/v/ recently saw a thread of an allegedly game tester who is currently working in a 3rd party studio, he claims to be working on a PS5 dev kit version 2, an Xbox Series X dev kit seem to be also on the game tester’s hands.

This specs would make the Sony’s hardware the most powerful console ever released, more powerful than Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. In late January an unreliable informant who goes by the name “Tidux” assured that the PS5 would outperform the Xbox Series X.
A more reliable source is IGN Japan’s editor-in-chief Shin Imai, according to the information he received from insiders, Sony is aiming to release the PlayStation 5 at a lower cost compared to Xbox Series X. If Imai’s information is accurate, Sony might have a more affordable, less capable hardware, while Xbox is pushing the boundaries of hardware power at a reasonable cost.
“The Xbox Series X is doubtless aiming for much greater performance than the PS5 … There are some differences in specs, and PS5 aims be cheaper than the Xbox Series X as a result,” said the editor-in-chief, according to ComicBook.com’s translation.
