The fact that gamers are still struggling to get their hands on a next-gen console hasn’t stopped Sony and Microsoft from planning mid-generation upgrades. A new leak suggests that the PS5 Pro and new Xbox Series X will be coming in 2023 or 2024. Once again, the leaker is no other than Tom Henderson. The journalist behind the FIFA 23 and, most recently, the Call of Duty leaks.
In a new conference, TCL Technology have said that a new Xbox Series S/X and PS5 Pro are coming in 2023/2024.

Henderson posted via Twitter a few pictures at a TLC Technology conference. His pictures show off possible specs of the mid-generation consoles and a release date of 2023/2024. According to the leak, the consoles will be capable of 8K visuals at 120Hz, equivalent to AMD’s RX7700XT.
We know that Sony and Microsoft would release mid-generation upgrades as they did for the PS4 and Xbox One. The PS4 Pro and Xbox One X were developed for 4K capability and released a few years after their base consoles.
PS5 and Xbox Series X Shortages
As Sony and Microsoft plan to release new renditions of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, consumers continue to struggle to get their hands on next-gen consoles. Last December, a new bill was introduced to stop scalpers from buying next-gen consoles in bulk. Scalpers would then sell the consoles at ridiculously inflated prices. Should the bill pass, it will effectively ban scalper bots from popular retailers. As of now, there is still no movement on the bill, but we will keep you guys updated if anything changes.
Will you buy a PS5 Pro or a new Xbox Series X within the next two years? Are you still struggling to get a next-gen console? Let us know in the comments.
