I hate Sony controllers, so I got a Nacon




I have multiples of both (Pro, Elite & 1X). I like XB1X the most.

All M$ did was say they not k*lling this gen by releasing next gen. It like s/w being compatible for different graphic cards. Now that XB is doing it, it's throwing in the flag, but not strengthening the brand for consumers in different financial situations

I'll stick with my PS4Pro and cop a Series X Outside of a new God of War, not much I want out of a Sony system. Just my opinion.
I get what you saying I just think two years until we get games made with the new hardware as the bottom is a tough pill to swallow for me

None at all. I just wanna minimize flushing money down the toilet next gen.

Yall dont understand how bad I want MS to legitimately compete with Sony. All that's gonna mean is we get better games

I see your point, but most developers don't even know how to take advantage of a consoles power until the second half of the life cycle.

I even understand when people say they choose a console cuz of the exclusives, Hell, I got a XB1 day 1 cuz I like the platform, but didn't get a PS4P until Neir Autmata came out (then I still got it for both systems eventually ).

To me, TLOU and Uncharted didn't sell me. God of War, Berserk and Persona 5 did. I have weird gaming habits. What I paid for a laptop, I could have built a nice gaming PC, but for me it comes down to preference.

I'm cool with XB not having launch exclusives, long as the multimedia capabilities are convenient as this gen. I get the pros and cons of both systems, but XB was a better multimedia device since its inception to me.

If enough exclusives come out for the PS5, and they get a mid-gen refresh, I'll probably cop that too, cuz at the core I'm a techie

Told yall this months ago. Do yall ever listen. We are attacking from the outside in.. The ps5 and xbox series x will be the last physical consoles u r getting besides the ps5 pro and xbox series X max. There will be no need for consoles in about 7-10 years as u will stream thru tv service via Microsoft game pass app.

This will hurt sony who is only dependent on hardware sales and lose over 100 bucks every console. Other than the playstation Sony dosent have anything else going on and this will be there downfall.

I dnt care if u buy a one x series x 360 or a one s...as long as its m$ dolla sign baby. The run to being the only home video game company in living rooms across the world is almost complete. M$onopoly

Not sure how its considered a bad thing or not competing, if anything it would but more of a focus on content and not hardware.

They've been pushing to unification since windows 10 dropped, it makes more sense money wise.

Then again i took the time to read the article and not just the headline

If nvidia/Intel partnered with some accessory companies and sold i5s and rtx 2070 setups for the same price as these consoles it would be over

Wars exist in everything in chief. Itís called economics.

Also, the industry was built specifically on console wars. But yea lets not talk about it

Because theyíre electing to prioritize their streaming services and not their console.

I have gamepass, but why do I need a series X? Xbox needs to answer this question eventually or theyíre officially competing with Google and Apple

They waved that white flag in a conventional sense a long time ago. Early this gen. They decided they would go full pc as their xbox console base alone wasn't getting it done. They began to obfuscate their financial reports to reflect that change. MAU, number of console sold etc etc stopped being reported. It's all about the eco system or more so gamepass. Getting people into that system at all cost even if its a money pit for a while.

Funny enough, it looks like to me Sony is slowly but surely if the rumors are to be believed(and theirs not reason not to since credible people are reporting) is jacking their style at least on the PC end. Meaning, a couple of years from now, I can easily see the Jim Ryan lead administration saying that all future 1st party games are going to be released day on PC as well leaving Nintendo as the last Don with true exclusives.
