    Always been a Playstation guy, and will almost certainly get a PS5, but i quite like the look of Obsidians new RPG and Fable too. Might upgrade my pc so I can play them + the new Halo.

    I usually pick what looks most promising 1st then the others next. Xbox 360 shat on ps3, so 360 then ps3. Ps4 shat on xbox one, ps4 then xbox one. I then pick Nintendos up some time down the line.

    Looking good for microsoft this gen coming, the fact it is the more powerful of the two is a major bonus right away. They have a lot make up for with the xbox one though. The only really redeeming factor of the xbox one has been game pass and its no something I'd do ( I like buying physical copies of games and hate the thought of this subscription stuff) the controllers are also excellent. They were blown away by Sony this gen in what matters, games.

    So, that's 3 AAA RPG's in the works for Xbox..

    Avowed (Obsidian), Fable (Playground Games).. and a unknown IP from InXile.

    Good variety.

    PS man all the way, doubt I ever see the day I won't buy their consoles. But what MS have done with Game Pass for PC is brilliant for someone like me.
    Will likely always have a PC as well, so 2 machines and I pretty much get the best of all 3 platforms.
    Sony, as much as I love them, seriously lack in this *.

    Likely not.
    Which is a shame and annoying because they have the two components in ps+ and psNow to be able to try and imitate GamePass for Pc, but they won't.

    In my younger days I'd have been called a fanboy for my levels of dedication to ps. But honestly I can not fault the way MS have went about this.

    The market pool is there for Xbox anyways they've just signed a whole bunch of ps and pc gamers up to their subscription service as well.

    I’ve stuck up for Microsoft and bought their consoles as my main one since the 360, but they really need to get the * finger out with games. I played one of the best looking games with superb gameplay in the open world in Ghost of Tsushima, while Xbox are congratulating PS4 owners they can now play Cuphead, who’s kidding who here?

    I do expect next gen to be a massive improvement for Xbox, in terms of exclusives.. but the issue is many of the big hitters such as Avowed, Fable, Everwild, Project Mara, whatever the initiative are working on etc.. are a few years away from being released.

    They have some making up to do, having played all the PlayStation exclusives I can honestly say this is where Sony is killing them. Ghost of Tsushima just became the fastest selling exclusive on the PS4.

    Still reckon Microsoft should bring another few studios under there banner, don't know why they did not get Moon studios aboard the guys who made Xbox most popular indie series Ori. Looks like Moon studios next title is multi platform which is a huge miss for Microsoft.

    Apparently 343 is a * mess and is mostly using contractors for coding, there’s been a few whistleblowers saying this is why the new Halo is a riot.

    Really want to switch to from PS4 to Series X for change of pace and pallette cleanser, but might be better sticking to PlayStation and get the PS5. Will see how they line up closer to launch. Halo did look average and generic as *, they where touting that new slips pace engine as a game changer, it hardly even looks a step up from Halo 3.

    Not clued up on stuff like that, but I always really wonder why people care about that so much?

    Personally, if one console is 1% or 10% more powerful than the other, it makes no difference. It’s all about the games and the exclusives. I understand that the more powerful the console, the more ambitious and detailed games can be on that console...but we’re talking about tiny margins.

    I thought I heard it was a fair bit more powerful? I see the reveal of Halo went down pretty poorly.

    I agree it's all about the games. I feel sorry for anyone who bought an XBOX this gen and could only have one of the two because the exclusive games on Playstation are incredible. Spiderman, * Of War, Days Gone(my personal fave), Bloodborne, Ghost Of Tsushima(tbf I have only just got this but brilliant so far), Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last Of Us 2 (depending on tastes!) are all must plays in my opinion. Uncharted series was very good too but not a must for me. The exclusives also weren't predatory with tonnes of micro-transactions- like Microsoft chose to do.

    I will wait and see which one to get first depending on all factors not just the power but it is a good start to have.
    Really don't get the fanboy attitude and side taking that people do, it's scary. Loyal to a company like it's a football team for some people, baffling af.
