Latest reports suggest that Sony and Microsoft are in the process of bringing some big games to their highly-popular consoles PS4 and Xbox One. This also means more support for the two consoles.

While Sony PlayStation 4 continues to dominate the console market, its competitors are sitting idle in any sense. While the Nintendo Switch continues to post some very impressive sales, Microsoft could soon launch its next console upgrade, the Xbox Scorpio. All these consoles are reportedly planning for their next big gaming reveal to sell more consoles. “PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds” is already available on Steam as an Early Access game. The game is also being developed for consoles.

While the game’s developer Bluehole has not yet provided a release date, the team is already working relentlessly on the console version. Xbox One is the first to get through the Preview Scheme. Speaking to Business Insider, the game’s creative director Brendan Greene said that his team is looking to port it to Xbox One for now. The company has no time frame yet. “PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds” has similarities with “ARK Survival Evolved” and “DayZ,” where 100 players compete against each other to be the sole survivor on a remote island.

Such games last for a long time, as players have to collect weapons, armour and supplies to defeat other players. “Battlegrounds” has been a huge hit on PC. It has sold more than two million copies on Steam, reports Express. Bluehole CEO Gang-Seok Kim has thanked the dedicated gaming community for the massive sales milestone, as they helped the developer refine the game in many ways. More gaming support is coming to Xbox Scorpio and PS4 Pro. Sony and Microsoft is gearing up for the holiday season as the consoles go head-to-head.

There are also rumours that Sony will soon release its next gaming console by the second-half of 2018. Even though PS4 sales have been quite impressive, Sony wants more numbers for total units sold. Sony wants to sell 18 million units during the upcoming financial year. The company could be slashing prices of its original PS4 console so as to achieve such massive sales numbers. However, Microsoft will be watching closely, and it will take action as soon as Sony does.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that modder Benjamin Heck has made the Super Nintendo PlayStation prototype fully-functional. Stay tuned on IBT AU for more updates on gaming consoles.
