Following the reveal of Sony’s next-gen console specifications by Mark Cerny, the lead architect for the PlayStation 5, a new rumour claims that the next Xbox will be even more powerful.
While many agree that the specifications for the PlayStation 5 revealed by Cerny is very impressive, especially the inclusion of an SSD and ability to support raytracing, a new tweet by founder and head editor of Seasoned Gaming, Ainsley Bowden, seems to indicate that Microsofts next Xbox console could be even more powerful.
Bowden’s tweet mentions that “multiple sources” have confirmed that Microsoft’s next Xbox release, codenamed Anaconda, could be more advanced than Sony’s PlayStation 5.
The PS5 hardware details (so far) were exactly what we were hoping for; even beyond what many were expecting.
Multiple insiders have now confirmed it’s true Xbox “Anaconda” will be more advanced as rumored.
All this means is next year is going to be AMAZING for fans of both. pic.twitter.com/ro9QeO8DtV

It was reported back in December last year that Microsft’s next-gen offering would include two consoles, a cheaper device, codenamed Lockheart, and their flagship model, called Anaconda, which is the console Bowden’s tweet refers to.
Many expect Microsft to release their next Xbox console before Sony’s, which is said to be releasing next year.
As with all rumours, this should be taken lightly as the truth will inevitably be revealed once Sony and Microsft reveal their next-gen consoles.
