Sony is the world-class multinational conglomerate corporation that has ventured into the market of making top-tier hardware for the last 50 years. However, since the mid-90s, Sony invested in the video gaming industry, developing hardware and video games for its PlayStation brand. The company so far has launched a lineup of home-based and portable video game consoles consisting of the original PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 4, and the recent PlayStation 5. The Japanese tech giant, Sony, competes with the leading American consumer electronics company called Microsoft. The latter’s Xbox trademark and its series of video game consoles, including the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series X/S, rivals the former’s video game consoles. To cover all the emerging buzz between both brands, we at eXputer write hot news, video game guides, reviews, tier lists about the products associated with Sony, Microsoft, and their subsidiaries.
