    I wouldn't be so sure..
    Microsoft are investing heavily in first party studios, in a effort to catch up to Sony.. (have a look at The Initiative)

    Couple that with the fact, every Microsoft exclusive will be included on Gamepass from now on.

    The cod deal is whoever pays them the most money although at least this year all maps are available to everyone at the same time

    Which as far as I can decipher, is playable on PC as well, which for me is actually confirming the purchase of a PS5 and then gamepass it for the exclusives on PC.


    I may have this wrong though.

    No you are correct, it’s the Ultimate version of game pass though.

    Awesome

    What is the major differences between the (3?) tiers? I couldn't suss out which option I needed - being a guy who doesn't/wouldn't be owning an xbox, but wanting the most options on the PC app.

    More on Microsoft’s studios they acquired and what content can be expected.

    And all of those games will be part of the game pass?

    Man, I actually getting excited for this stuff. In my mind, I think I'll do two more upgrade parts on my PC in the next 12 months and perhaps actually put the PS5 on hold till they iron out any issues (all the first release consoles seem to have isues it seems, on both sides), then pick up a PS5 later on when a tad cheaper etc.

    I've seen the developers they've acquired, it's a decent effort but are any of the quality to make equivalents of The Last of Us, Uncharted, Spiderman, Horizon Zero Dawn etc? Studios like Naughty Dog, Guerilla, Sucker Punch have been Sony mainstays for years, loads of experience and heavily backed. Apart from Obsidian none have a record of top quality AAA games, it will take them years to catch up. Plus I think the damage was done years ago after that train crash of an Xbox One reveal, MS don't even release sales figures anymore which is a telling sign of how the Xbox One X did for them. Just can't see anything up their sleeves that will change opinion, unless the new console is announced as free :56:

    Yeah they didn't, PS3 outsold the 360 despite the Xbox year head start plus the PS3 had far better games and remember was also the cheapest Blu Ray player at the time. The tide turned pretty much turned when Sony got their * together with the slim model.

    Interesting to see where this cross console gaming thing goes right enough, for the ones behind in console sales it makes sense, for the ones selling more it makes no sense at all as we saw with the current gen when Phil Spencer was championing the idea and Sony were like * that. I wonder if it will be a thing straight away with the next gen.

    On paper this blows the playstation away. I currently own on xbox one. But tbh I'm still considering getting a PS5 as I believe they have the better games that are only released on their platform. The Last of Us for example. I really want to play that mother *

    I ended up buying both as I really wanted to play the Sony exclusives, I’m glad I did tbh and will probably buy both consoles again this generation.

    Got an Xbox One last gen because I loved the 360. Overall I was fairly disappointed. The PS4 would’ve been the better choice.

    I was going to go PS5 but the series X makes a strong case. I got the game pass during lockdown and it’s been pretty decent if I’m being honest.

    Might get an old PS4 on the cheap when the new ones come out and wait for a while on the next gen ones.

    I'll no doubt do the same and get both, I think I'll wait a bit for both and stagger them this time though. I have a major backlog to work through which has been made longer due to having two sons through this console generation. Gaming time has been scarce. I like the design of the xbox, I like the more bland look. I don't like the look of the ps5, too flashy looking and would look daft next to the tele. The xbox just looks like a sub woofer and would blend in better hehe

    I think that would be a good idea because the playstation exclusives have been unreal.

    Nice. Unexpectedly smaller than I thought they would be.
    Wont be going a day one buy for me but, as I can still play xbox games on PC. Might get one with special edition paint or something down the road.
    My holiday budget goes to ps5 and whatever beast nvidia or AMD churned out this year.
