    Were you on the fence up until that?

    I have decided to stick with Playstation 1st and grab series X black Friday next year or at console revision. I had planned on XBSX 1st because its the more powerful machine. The more I thought on how disappointing the xbox one was I changed my mind. The xbox one was only good for game pass and I'm no ready to go to subscription based gaming - even though it is an incredibly good deal and will only be better now with Bethesda back catalogue. Surprised to see there isn't a single xbox exclusive come launch which is mental. Although tbf I'm not creaming myself at sonys launch line up either.

    Was swinging towards PS5 but not 100%. Mainly for Horizon and The Last of Us (assuming a 3rd comes out). However The Elder Scrolls, Doom, Fallout and Wolfenstein as possible timed exclusives or simply day1 game pass swings it for meas I already have game pass. Will pick up a series X next year when they are easier to get hold of and the enevitable PS5 slim mid cycle. Will just play Horizon on the PS4 since its heading to that as well.

    There will be loads who will be the same, mega set of IPs to get especially for me, Elder Scrolls 6.

    I just completed Horizon recently loved it, TLOU2 as well. I pretty much loved all the exclusives on PS4. Days Gone and Bloodborne were probably my favourites. Playing Ghost of tsushima the now and thats excellent too. Only played a little of the spiderman game but enjoyed what I did. A big point for me with the Sony exclusives was the fact they weren't full of microtransactions and * that a lot of the xbox exclusives were.
    I really should sit out the start of these new consoles as my backlog is a disgrace but I've got the money sitting there the now and I don't really spend money on other hobbies or anything.

    Im swaying towards the series s now because the weans have hijacked my ps4 and * the disc drive on it so it only works digitally.my Oldest one wants a tablet from santa. And the other one is happy with the switch .also dont have a 4k tv so 4k isnt an issue with me. 250 sheets for a lovely looking wee white series s with an awesome controller where i can stick on splinter cell blacklist on the back catalogue away from all the madness in the hoose. Splinter cell blacklist and chaos theory for me were the best games ive played on any console ever.looks like they are making a new splinter cell aswell so cant wait for that

    The backwards compatability is a big appeal for me too. I have all the splinter cells and have been getting the urge for Chaos Theory, I remember playing that on the original Xbox and not being able to believe how good it looked. Blacklist I only got round to in 2018(checked my achievements there) and loved it, I skipped that one back in the day. Sam Fisher made a cameo in the wildlands game recently, really need to revive the franchise. I think you'd be as well as just hanging off and getting the X, I wouldn't recommend digital to anyone though. If you get the X you have a much more powerful console and can keep it as a digital with option for discs.

    Nah sadly not. You tied in with him for a mission and could get some clothing like his. He actually makes a wee nod to snake from MGS. I liked the game tae but fell away from it.
