- Ray tracing the high-end feature which is available in selected PCs but the good news is that both upcoming gaming consoles will support this light rendering technique.

Virtual Reality is the latest term and the notable aspect also to determine the excellence of a gaming console over another. PS5 will support the Play Station VR but there is no certainty about Xbox 2. Xbox 2 didn’t reveal yet that it would support virtual reality or not so we just wait and watch.

Backward compatibility refers to the efficiency to enjoy the older games on the new console. I am really happy to confirm that Sony’s PS5 will be compatible with all PS4 titles means it will provide you backward compatibility. As per a patent filed by Sony, it is expected that you would be able to play all the past PS titles on the PS5. Though chances are uncertain and if it really happens then you would be lucky if you go for Play Station 5.
Now move on Xbox 2, there is no certain news about the backward compatibility of Xbox 2. Nevertheless, in E3 2019 they addressed that gamers would be able to bring back your older achievements and accessories to the upcoming Xbox console. We can’t definitely consider it backward compatibility though.
PS5 vs Xbox 2: Price (How much will they put the burden on your pocket)
The exact price of next-generation gaming machines is under folds and we can’t give you any idea about their cost. But you can expect a moderate price as per their specs and performance as well.
Ray-tracing and hardware from the renowned name can make them slight costlier so be ready to put an extra burden on your pocket.
We are not sure at all but after observing the specification and other aspects we can predict that their price would be somewhere between $400 to $500. It is just a prediction don’t think it actual price.
