And, apparently, it is unlikely that they will ever appear.
Now we can definitely say that the PlayStation 5 Pro, if it really comes out, will have no competitors. The head of the Xbox Phil Spencer (Phil Spencer) explicitly stated that Microsoft is not in the development of updated consoles of the current generation. That is, no improved Xbox Series S and / or Series X should be expected.
No no. Right now we’re focusing on the Xbox Series S with more memory. But no, as I said, in my opinion, we are at the end of the initial stage. So I think we need to let developers settle on this hardware and get the most out of it.

But when it comes to frame rate ups and resolutions up, I just look at what happens on PCs with high end GPUs and high end CPUs, and it’s not always about pixel count or frame resolution. I think there are lighting methods. There are many things that make the game look and feel great. And we, as an industry, have a huge margin of opportunity.
Considering that it takes at least a couple of years to develop even just an updated generation, apparently, we will not see any intermediate generation from Microsoft at all. At the same time, we recall that reliable sources say that the PS5 Pro may come out at the end of next year, and the performance of such a console will be more than twice as high as that of the PS5.
