Since the verdict of the FTC-Microsoft case went in favor of the Xbox makers in the US, both Sony and Microsoft are bombarding the community with tons of new products and services. The battle to get the top position in the industry is ultimately benefitting the fans as they have a lot to choose from.

The PlayStation console remains the highest-selling gaming console with over five generations of technological advancement. However, Xbox isn’t far behind and is quickly catching up thanks to its new exclusive releases.

Despite this, it remains to be seen if Xbox can actually match up to PlayStation 5’s stunning market performance. A recent tweet may change the perception of those who believe the Xbox to be inferior to the PS5 consoles.

The Xbox Series S has been slammed numerous times for its poor hardware, which can cause hindrance in experiencing a game to its fullest potential. While criticism of this notion also exists, the recent tweet attempts to put the discussion to an end once and for all.

Despite having a super-fast SSD to load games quicker, the PlayStation 5 took over 17 seconds to quick-resume Remnant 2. On the other hand, the Xbox Series X managed to load the game within 6 seconds, while its arguably weaker version did the same in just 7.28 seconds. With such a drastic difference in load time, PlayStation 5’s SSD doesn’t seem to make much of a difference to its performance.
