If news that the United States has officially fallen into a recession left you feeling down, Sony’s and Microsoft’s latest announcements are sure to cheer you up. The next generation of gaming is quickly approaching as both companies prepare events that will provide all the details you need to know for the upcoming PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. We do not yet know much about either console yet, but from what we do know, such as their support for real-time raytracing and 8K output, one thing is for sure: These will not be cheap devices. If you’re one of the lucky few who still has a job when the second wave of COVID-19 hits this fall, you’ll want to save your stimulus check for one of these devices! How else will you be able to enjoy new experiences impossible on previous generations such as a new Halo game by Microsoft and unannounced title by Sony?
