PS5 vs Xbox X: What would Sheldon Cooper do now

Fans of “The Big Bang Theory” TV series can relate to the dilemma of Sheldon Cooper, who couldn’t choose between a PS4 and Xbox One in the nineteenth episode of seventh season. While the Xbox vs PlayStation argument has always been a one-sided debate depending on who you talk to, there are pros of both gaming consoles one cannot simply ignore. Sheldon’s conundrum while trying to decide between an Xbox One or PS4 as his next gaming system could be on a whole new level if he had to choose between PS5 or Xbox X.

When Sony launched the PS5 at its “Future of Gaming” event, the company gave its fans several “woo-hoo!” moments. Sony sure gave a lot for PlayStation fans to digest in a single day. Let’s take a look at some exciting features that Sheldon Cooper would highlight in his Xbox vs PlayStation debate.
