Since Playstation 4 Pro has already been released, the next big game will be either the Nintendo NX or the Project Scorpio. But which one will it be?
It could be difficult to make predictions right now, but there is some insight and some industry trends that can help.
On our guide about Project Scorpio, we have revealed that the console will be released next year. There is a chance that it will likely be around the holiday season, so we will have some time to wait. In contrast, the Nintendo NX is expected to be released much sooner, sometime within the first quarter of 2017.
As for processing power, a huge indicator of what could be more popular, the Project Scorpio will play native 4K resolution titles, VR support, and have a powerful graphics unit. 4K gaming may not make it to the Nintendo NX this time around, though it may play games on full HD at 60 fps.
Probably the biggest thing that will determine whether to buy the Nintendo NX or Project Scorpio will be the price of both consoles. The Xbox Project Scorpio will likely cost somewhere between $650 to $750, without the VR headset. The Nintendo NX is going to be much cheaper, coming in around $299 to $399.
Of course, titles are going to determine a lot as well. It is very unlikely that you will find games available on both platforms. There are great titles on each, it just depends on what happens around the time of release.
