6 Reasons Why Xbox X is Superior to PS5


If you are like most gamers, you too might be confused about which gaming consoles to buy. Both the Xbox and PS5 gaming consoles are good in their own way. However, most professional gamers prefer Xbox X over PS5 because according to them, it is more ergonomic and efficient for longer gaming sessions.

If you are not sure whether to buy an Xbox x or not, we suggest you read this article till the very end. We will take you through some of the main features of Xbox x which you cannot find in any other console.

Here are the main reasons why Xbox x is better than PS5 consoles

  1. Ergonomic Design

It has a design similar to a matte black tower PC and comes with a 130mm cooling fan that draws cool air in and sends out hot air through small vents at the bottom. The design of PS5 on the other hand is flashier and takes up more space.

Xbox can be used in both vertical as well as horizontal positions while the PS5 does not give you this freedom.

  1. Specifications

The processing power of Xbox is about 3.8 GHz while of PS5 is 3.5GHz which makes it ideal for playing heavy games. Xbox has 8 core CPUs working together to provide a seamless gaming experience.

Xbox x uses SSD for storing your games which is both high-quality and fast. The consoles support 4K resolution which allows you to play games in very high quality. Though PS5 also offers some of these specs, they are not so great in performance and they provide a mediocre gaming experience.

  1. Better Controllers

Not only are the controllers of Xbox x of high quality, but they are also ergonomic since they put zero pressure on your wrists. The controllers of Xbox are not that big which makes it easier for both kids and adults to enjoy the games like Path of exile trade, COD, etc.

The Xbox x controllers support DLI or dynamic latency input which means there are virtually zero delays between pressing the command and seeing its effects on the screen.

  1. Picture Quality

Xbox supports very high 4k video resolution which is both consistent as well as clear. The Xbox x also supports Dolby Vision which uses metadata to give you clear visuals. PS5 does not have this feature which affects your experience badly.

Xbox also allows you to stream high-quality media directly from various platforms. PS5 is mainly a Blu-ray player while Xbox provides both high-quality gaming as well as streaming features.

  1. Sound Quality

The PS5 lacks the crispiness and dynamic punch when compared with the sound quality of Xbox x. Xbox provides a 3D sound that makes the gaming experience more immersive and realistic for your ears.

The Xbox delivers very great sound quality, especially for Atmos-enabled games. You get a clear sense of space and a precise dynamic expression of your surroundings in the game with Xbox which makes things so much fun.

  1. Collection of Games

Xbox x is backwards compatible which means you can play any game from Xbox one on this console which is pretty cool. Xbox x comes with an exclusive game pass for a monthly subscription. With this pass, you get access to more than 100 exciting Xbox games including Gear 5, Forza Horizon 4, Poe uberlab, etc.

The Xbox exclusives are cheaper and more fun to play than PS5. The variety of games that Xbox provides is really amazing and gamers of all ages can have fun playing these.

Final Thoughts

So, these are some of the main factors which make Xbox x a better choice for most gamers. No doubt PS5 has its perks too, but in terms of build quality, efficient design, video quality, and processing power, it cannot compete with Xbox x.

This is why we suggest you pick Xbox x as your next gaming console if you really want to have a fuller and more immersive gaming experience. We really hope this information helps you decide faster about which console to buy and we wish you the very best in your journey as a console gamer.
