Colluding? That's speculation. They are both going through AMD, true, but collusion is wild speculation.

this is the first time in 30 years of console gaming that competing systems have had architectures anywhere near alike. they are reskinned PCs with a slightly different philosophy in harware configuration. there is zero proprietary hardware in these boxes.
Since we're speculating, has anyone cared to speculate that both companies are going with AMD and both companies have similar specs because that's the best that can be produced for the amount consumers are willing to pay for a console? Gamers act like these companies owe them something, like they are providing a public service. They aren't. They're here to make money. If you don't like their product, voice your opinion with your wallet.
