Sony’s recent pseudo-reveal of the PS5 impressed a large number of people, thanks to what they’re promising they’ll deliver with their next gen hardware. The preliminary specs they’ve revealed look promising, the inclusion of an SSD allegedly makes for hugely faster performances, while the inclusion of things such as VR support and backwards compatibility are major crowd-pleasers as well.

But of course, the PS5 isn’t the only horse in the race. Microsoft’s next gen Xbox is also bound to be revealed soon – most likely at their E3 show this June – and all eyes will be on them to see if their system matches (or outmatches) the impressive hardware Sony are claiming they will put out. Apparently, though, that is exactly what Microsoft plans to do.

As per journalist Ainsley Bowden on Twitter, “multiple insiders” are confirming that the Xbox Anaconda – which is the codename for one of the two next gen Xbox models Microsoft is reportedly working on – is going to be “more advanced” than the PS5, which Microsoft wanting to continue having the most powerful console hardware available on the market, as they currently do with the Xbox One X as well.

Meanwhile, known Xbox insider Klobrille is also confirming on ResetEra that Microsoft is intending for the Xbox Anaconda to be the “clearly better performing device” of all consoles available once the next generation rolls around.

As per several reports over the last few months, Microsoft is reportedly working on two variants of their next Xbox console, with one being codenamed Anaconda, and the other one Lockhart. While Lockhart is supposed to be the cheaper and more affordable piece of hardware, Anaconda, as per all past reports, has been said to be the next gen equivalent of the Xbox One X, being priced higher, but also having more powerful hardware.

These, incidentally, are the same reports that suggested that Microsoft was also working on a discless, digital-only edition of the Xbox One – which we now officially know to be true – so there’s plenty of merit to them. In either case, we should hopefully find out soon enough, with Microsoft’s E3 press event this June.
