Every year the prestigious and veteran North American magazine Time chooses the best inventions of the year, and despite the difficulties inherent in 2020, it has not been the exception. As far as we are concerned, which is the world of video games, we find several articles in the list of 100 that the publication draws up, highlighting the presence of two new consoles such as PS5 Y Xbox Series S, and surprisingly, the absence of Microsoft’s “premium” model, Xbox Series X.
Presence of hardware and software in the list
Regarding the Sony console, Time asserts that “the small advances” of PS5 all combine to create “a revolutionary experience” for gamers, receiving a mention as well. Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the DualSense.
“PlayStation 5 is the largest console ever made, and it is that Sony needed space to be able to with the visual spectacle of Spider-Man: Miles Morales”, reads said article. “Games load almost instantly, the processor is almost 10 times faster than the PS4’s, and the new controller is packed with haptic sensors that add a whole new dimension to the game.”
Meanwhile, as we said before, the surprise comes from the hand of Xbox Series S, which makes an appearance on the list to the detriment of its superior model, Xbox Series X. “The new console of the technological giant is more than a simple device of new generation: it is the basis that it could be considered the Netflix of video games, “they say from the magazine. “Series S’s secret weapon is Game Pass: a subscription service where new hits like Halo: Infinite will arrive on the same launch day. What’s more, lacking a disc drive, the Series S runs almost silently.”
But by no means the only items on the list related to video games. The Nvidia subscription service also appears, Geforce Now, and the only video game that is among these 100 inventions: Animal Crossing: New Horizons, of which the evasive factor that it has supposed during this year where the whole world has been affected by the global pandemic of the coronavirus stands out.
