Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One have a new rival and it isn’t Nintendo Switch – Express.co.uk

A new console is being released that will join the likes of the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s Switch and 3DS handhelds.

As you can see, it’s already a cluttered market with a bunch of options, including upgraded consoles such as the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.

We already know that the industry leaders have already established some serious market share and in some cases are even looking to expand further.

Microsoft’s Xbox One X will launch in November and provide the most powerful specs ever, while the Nintendo Switch continues to build an impressive exclusive games list.

Sony on the other hand have sold the most and their PlayStation 4 continues to lead the way in terms of brand popularity.

As of June 11, 2017, PS4 has cumulatively sold through more than 60.40M units to consumers worldwide, while the PlayStation ecosystem as a whole has more than 70 million monthly active users.

So it may comes as unexpected news that a new console rival is set to enter the hardware arena against the PS4 and Xbox One.

Harking back to an earlier age of giants, Atari announced this week that it will launch a new gaming system to go toe-to-toe with everyone else.

Atari CEO Fred Chesnais confirmed the news, who confirmed that the well-known brand was re-entering the hardware market.

The AtariBox has been teased before and now looks to be a real product, with Chesnais revealing to Venture Beat that “it’s based on PC technology. Atari is still working on the design and will reveal it at a later date.”

What that could mean is anyone’s guess but a new YouTube teaser also confirmed that a “brand new Atari product years in the making,” is in the works.

While no new games were launched during E3 2017 for either the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, that’s set to change this week.

Darkest Dungeon – The Crimson Court comes to PS4 on June 19, followed by Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood on June 20 and Get Even on PS4 and Xbox One.

Get Even was meant launch in May but was pushed back due to the terrorist attack in Manchester.

“Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even,” the developer confirmed at the time. 

“We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned.”

The first-person shooter is being developed by The Farm 51 and will include some sort of support for the PS4 Pro.

“We are, unfortunately, a too small developer to be able to focus deeply on PS4 Pro so we used “safe enhancements,” The Farm 51’s Director Wojciech Pazdur told WCCFTECH.

“The game supports 4K on Playstation 4 Pro while the effects in the game and the framerate stay similar on both consoles.”
