With more next generation Playstation and Xbox news expected in and around E3 2019, gamers are wondering which of Microsoft and Sony’s offerings will come out on top.

PS4 beat Xbox One

The latest console war saw the Playstation 4 square up against the Xbox One. After the PS3 narrowly beat the Xbox 360 (in terms of units sold), the PS4 and Xbox One rivalry was expected to be a closely contested affair.

However, it proved to be anything but competitive. To date the PS4 has sold nearly 97 million units in comparison to the Xbox One’s estimated 40 million.

Sony/MicrosoftThe home console war between the PS4 and Xbox One wasn’t as closely contested as most thought it would be…

The consequence of this is that Sony sit atop of the games console mountain. Due to their current dominance, most analysts are speculating that Sony will beat Microsoft once again in the upcoming PS5 and Xbox 2 battle.

One prominent figure in the gaming industry disagrees though.

Jack Trenton shares thoughts

The man who was heavily involved in the development of the PS4, Jack Trenton, believes Microsoft will give Sony a run for their money this time around.

The PS5 for the most part is shrouded in mystery…

The former President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, when asked about Sony’s current positioning, stated: “I think they’re very well-positioned. The leader of the prior generation is always in a good position going into the new generation.”

He went to say that after reading the specs for the Sony Playstation 5 that they sound “impressive”. However, he concluded by saying: “[Sony are] well-positioned. But I do think they’ll face exponentially more competition than they did the last time around.”

New competitors – Nintendo and Google

While Nintendo aren’t exactly a new competitor, they are in fact older in the gaming market than both Sony and Microsoft, and Trenton says, “[they are] more relevant this time around”. Furthermore, Google’s entry into the gaming market with Stadia could also be a factor.

Nintendo of course focus on handheld console offerings, but with the latest technology making handheld devices powerful enough to play hardware intensive games, the two types of console are no longer mutually exclusive, as seen with the Nintendo Switch.

Google/NintendoCould Google and Nintendo play a big part in the next generation of consoles?

Elsewhere, Google’s Stadia is attempting to bring a new concept and new technology to the marketplace with its cloud gaming service. The cloud does appear to be the future, but whether it will take off now, or at all, remains to be seen.


For now though, the PS5 and the Xbox 2 will usher in the ninth generation of video game consoles and it will almost certainly be one of them that stands tall.

FUT Draft has some of the biggest rewards up for grabs in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, including packs, coins, and free tokens to enter. With online and offline rewards differing, this list should help you see how many wins you need to break into the better prizes. 

The draft mode can be played by Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players in FIFA 21 – if they pay the entrance fee to take part.

This cost is no different depending on if you select single player or multiplayer, as they’re both 15,000 coins or 300 FIFA Points. The rewards in the online version makes it more competitive, though.

When building a FUT Draft team, as regular players will know, you are given the option of high rated cards in almost every position. First of all, you will pick a formation, a captain, then go spot by spot in the squad until you have a team ready to compete. The best strategy, in terms of chemistry, is to pick a league or nationality to ensure you have as many strong links as possible before those picks run out.
