The latest of these, courtesy of Reddit and popular gaming forum ResetEra suggest that the PS5 and Next Xbox would be priced in-line with what the PS4 and Xbox One were originally priced at.

Furthermore, it’s suggested yet again that Microsoft would follow a two-pronged strategy with a streaming-only Xbox codenamed Lockhart and a more conventional, powerful variant referred to internally as Anaconda.

The PS5 and next Xbox release dates are slated for around the holiday season of 2020.

The Reddit post with PS5 and next Xbox pricing and specifications was removed, however some of its details were confirmed by a verified insider on ResetEra, lending credence to some of the claims.

The PS5 could have a 12GB DDR6 RAM

The latest rumours indicate that the PS5 will start at $399 (around Rs. 28,500), same as the launch price of PS4 back in 2014.

The next Xbox may have 16GB DDR6 RAM

The upcoming Xbox One successor will be released with a price-tag of $499 (around Rs. 35,600), again same as launch price of Xbox One with Kinect sensor. The Kinect-less variant, which was added later, was sold initially at $399 (around Rs. 28,500).
