Playstation 6 & New Xbox to hit shelves in 2028

Three years have rolled by since the unveiling of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series and Microsoft is now hinting at the next Xbox and PlayStation 6 hitting the markets in 2028. This prediction surfaced in an IGN report, making it the right time to start saving up for the next big gaming consoles.

Over the past two decades, we’ve seen four fresh iterations each of PlayStation and Xbox.

Every generation ushers in massive improvements in power, graphics, gameplay, and overall tech, albeit with a hefty price tag. So, this means Playstation 6 and the next Xbox gens are going to be beasts in terms of specs.

Yet, these consoles offer considerable longevity, with their life cycles spanning eight to ten years. Developers strive to extract the maximum potential from these consoles, while the creators, at the same time, ponder over the future of these devices soon after the launch of the current version.

This Thursday, Microsoft finds itself in a courtroom skirmish with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which is putting the brakes on Microsoft’s whopping $68.7 billion bid to take over Activision Blizzard.

The legal battle has unearthed court files indicating Microsoft’s anticipation of the next-gen gaming consoles’ arrival in 2028.

The initial day of the trial saw both FTC and Microsoft defending their stances on the acquisition with respective evidence. The FTC is of the view that Microsoft’s collaborations with other firms like Nintendo and Nvidia, which seem to encourage competition, are laden with “loopholes” and are susceptible to future revisions.

Microsoft, conversely, presented testimony from PlayStation chief Jim Ryan, stating that the takeover was not aimed at Xbox exclusivity.

Sony had voiced its worries about the deal soon after its announcement, fearing that the future of Call of Duty games on the PlayStation platform might hang in the balance post-acquisition.

A Microsoft representative clarified through an email statement on Thursday, “Sony has always been aware of our commitment to retaining games on its platform. Sony’s opposition to the deal only stems from its desire to preserve its monopoly in the market and block possibilities for the upcoming Playstation 6.”

Ryan added in his testimony that if the acquisition proceeds, Sony would be left out of any discussions with Activision regarding the upcoming PlayStation 6.

The court proceedings on Thursday come more than a year after Microsoft expressed its intentions to acquire Activision Blizzard.

Ever since Microsoft has been seeking the green light for the deal from antitrust watchdogs in various countries it operates in. The principal challenges to the deal, however, are being posed by the UK and US. Regulatory bodies in both nations are stalling the acquisition, flagging concerns over potential competition erosion in the video gaming sector.

Is PlayStation 6 coming out?

Back in 2021, Sony listed a job that suggests the development of a new console. So, we can assume that the PS6 release date will be around 2028

How much will Playstation 6 cost?

If we keep the upgrades and the possible inflation in mind, you can expect the brand-new PS6 to cost anywhere between $500 and $600. Plus, when PS5 launched, it was $100 more expensive than its predecessor, PS4, which retailed at $399. So, $599 for Playstation 6 is a solid guess.
