We’ve had the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles for just over a month, and while there were widespread reports of issues, have the teething problems been fixed?
We’ve been in the “next console generation” for a little over a month now, considering Xbox Series X|S released November 10 and PS5 launched November 12. Guess we should start referring to the new consoles as the current generation, huh? Still sounds weird though, to be honest.
In the weeks following their launch, Xbox and PlayStation have released updates for their respective new consoles, ranging from bug fixes to quality of life adjustments. Even Xbox Series X|S and PS5 are hard to find, at least both Microsoft and Sony have shown a commitment to improving the experience on their consoles for those who do happen to have one.
Several games have received significant upgrades on the new consoles as well, such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Borderlands 3. It all pretty much boils down to 4k support at 60fps but a few titles have received other notable improvements, such as splitscreen co-op and 120fps.
On this episode of Generation Next, Lucy, Tamoor, and Jordan go over all of this. The Gen Next crew is thankful that it hasn’t run into any major issues with their Xbox Series X|S and PS5 consoles just yet–hopefully their luck extends into 2021.
