This is quite a tough question both next gen ps5 and Xbox will both have different thing about then both will have exclusive games. I have own both normal get them after they come out weight for the price to go down.

I have all way lent more to the playstion then Xbox.

Not sure I agree with this. They could have easily asked SEGA/RGG to make the whole Yakuza series exclusive, but instead I think they either asked for the games first or perhaps RGG Studio simply develop first for PS4 themselves. Either way, the games are starting to appear on Xbox and other platforms now, although I believe Playstation is really the only place where as of next month when the Yakuza 5 remaster comes out you’ll be able to play the whole chronological series - as well as spin-offs like Judgment, which is an excellent game.

I suppose it depends on what you’re into. I like adventure third-person games like Uncharted, Shenmue, and Japan-centric games like Yakuza. But when I talk to my friends who are Xbox gamers, I’ve noticed they tend to talk about first-person shooters and racing games, neither of which are my preference.

Yh I totally understand that and completely see your point. As for the xbox gamers and what they tend to talk about, you’re definitely right but that is because currently that’s all we have. It does look like Microsoft are changing that lately though with some of the exclusives in development. I also read somewhere about some Japanese game studios that are going to be announced at E3 this year as being acquired and joining Xbox Studios. Guess we’ll have to wait until E3 to see if there’s any truth to that though.

I’m hoping with the relatively recent announcement of Sony’s new relationship with Microsoft to use their cloud architecture for Playstation, we may see a more friendly relationship develop between the two, we can live in hope :slight_smile:

Ultimately PlayStation owners are just a bit cooler and more attractive.

Xbox.

Game Pass Ultimate is proving good value for myself and my wife and there are some great games on there at the moment, plus I get access to some on PC too. Not sure when I last purchased a game on the Xbox due to the pass actually. I also prefer the controller far more.

Missing out on exclusives doesn’t bother me.

I wish cross-play was more of a thing though. A lot friends have migrated to PS4 resulting in less gaming in general. Probably also a factor as to why I buy far less games now, I used to buy games so I could play with friends.

If playing with your PlayStation friends is sufficiently important and the game subscription service is key for you, it’s worth noting that PS Now has significantly improved these days and in some ways (but certainly not all) is now better than the Xbox Game Pass. There’s a good comparison between the two here: https://www.androidcentral.com/playstation-now-vs-xbox-game-pass

That’s not gonna magically change the PlayStation controller though tbf.

It’s not sufficient enough to move over, unfortunately.

There are a myriad of reasons more than what I stated, but I just don’t see myself investing in more than one console in the next generation, when I’m likely to have a dwindling amount of free time.

I’m not even sure I’ll be getting the new Xbox on release, I’ll be getting CB2077 on PC, the new Ori game will be on Game Pass for the XB1 and aside from Halo Infinite which I doubt will be a launch title, I can’t think of any other games I’m looking forward to.

I think there are a lot of people who will hang back from investing in this generation of console. There’s a growing school of thought that it will be the last generation to require you to buy hardware and some even think the Series X and PS5 won’t even last out their normal life cycle before being replaced by hardware-less streaming services. I think Microsoft seem to be a bit ahead of Sony in pre-empting and preparing for that eventuality, partly by being more open about cross-platforming etc. Sony seem more keen to attempt to cling on to the existing model, which might prove to be dead in the water long-term.

Do either of these consoles have HDMI pass through, does anyone know?

Series X doesn’t, they stopped it after the Xbox One

Can confirm what Addzy says, found this page detailing the removal of the feature:

Sadness. There are really not enough devices with the feature.

We get HDMI CEC at long last finally though. Game changing for me, and much better than pass through.
