There is a third party involved in all this: AMD. They are producing key components for both Microsoft and Sony’s next generation system.
They are coming this year, though maybe you could worry about a lower than usual stock, but one thing at a time.
We’re less than four months away from the launch of both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, yet a lot of key details are still missing: namely the price and the actual date you’ll be able to walk in the store (or wait at your door if you’re an online-only shopper), to get either system.
That’s made some people worried about the lack of details meaning a last minute delay could come, but worry not, as all signs point to everything on schedule.
