Here is actually worse part.

PS5 aside from exclusives also will be held back. Moreover lack of progress on software developement in tech will also bounce back toward PS5 exclusives so they will be also hurt in crossfire, just not as hurt as multiplats. Software tech developement is community work and ideas and tech developed in one game is often shared and used it other games. So if some really nice looking effect requires 8TF performance to keep it and make rest of effects stellar this means it will be cut for both SEX and PS5 because without that baseline no one will work on it so that it could be used in 5-6 games rather than 100s.

4TF gen here we go.

I don't believe there's going to be an Xbox series S, I mean there is no way they could announce it at this point after all this hype for series X.
