Xbox Series X and PS5 will be released in November 2020.
The hard facts have finally been on the table for some time. Prices and release dates are now known for both the PlayStation 5 and the Series X and Series S , and the first pre-order rounds have already taken place.
That was reason enough for us to ask you again which console (s) you want to buy for the launch in November. The survey has been running for almost two weeks now and the results so far show an interesting trend.
Xbox Series X / S and PS5 are approaching
The survey results so far in the overview
- PS5: 3846 votes
- Xbox Series X / S: 2795 votes
- Both: 408 votes
- None: 926 votes
Total: 7975 (as of October 2nd, 2020)
Clearly recognizable: The PS5 leads the Xbox Series X / S, around 12 percent of all respondents currently do not want to get any of the next-gen consoles for launch.
Compared to the survey from July
The whole thing only becomes really interesting when you compare the previous survey results with those of our survey from July , in which we wanted to know exactly the same thing from you.
Because here the distribution of votes was even clearer:
The results of the July survey
At that time, the PS5 received 2,862 votes, while the Xbox Series X only received 1119 votes, which is significantly less than half of the PS5 votes. So the PS5 had a much bigger lead two months ago.
Also noteworthy: In July, only 266 of those surveyed did not want to buy a next-gen console; this value increased significantly in the September survey.
Interpretation of the results / trend
Most noticeable is certainly the big jump in the Xbox Series X / S votes. This could have arisen for various reasons:
Many people may see a clear increase in added value and will therefore choose one of the Microsoft consoles for the launch.
The PS5, on the other hand, continues to lead clearly, but has lost a bit of its lead. Some of the respondents may have changed their minds for the reasons mentioned above.
It is a bit surprising that the value of those who will not buy a next-gen console at launch has increased so much, but it is still “only” 12 percent of those surveyed. Perhaps these people lack the strong hits to start the consoles.
