Okay? It still doesn't change that Xbox did nothing in this E3 that makes me want to switch systems, which what OP was asking. Also If I really wanted Xbox games I would just get a PC because not only it gets Xbox games but also gets Japanese games that Xbox itself doesn't get.So yes... you have a narrow genre preference (JRPG). You are correct that as of now XBox doesn't have much for you. But you are also more of the exception than the rule.
Only Forza Horizon atm. I don't play that much to pick whatever is offered to me. I choose high quality (to me) games and PS exclusives tend to be in that group. Recently i finished Ghost of Tsushima and Spiderman Miles Morales, next one will probably be Valhalla or Cyberpunk 2077. I don't need GP for that.
This is the way.I have a PS5, but I really want to get an XSX. Maybe next year
Lol. Your avatar change. I literally made that point a few months ago and was DOG-PILED on. Wasn't an insult, but it was the truth and people did not like that.If GPUs continue to be super overpriced even in 2022 and 2023 i'm gonna think about buying a sex (if in the next year or two microsoft can demonstrate to have the much better version of any third party game compared to my ps5)
People don't dog pile on me because they know that i troll everyoneLol. Your avatar change. I literally made that point a few months ago and was DOG-PILED on. Wasn't an insult, but it was the truth and people did not like that.
I'm really REALLY hoping this silicon shortage changes by 2022. I've been on a waiting list for a 3080 from EVGA for nearly 9 mos. now which just blows my mind. Doesn't make me want a console at the moment because I can still run everything really well, but it does annoy the shit out of me.
Fixed! But seriously, I think the PC is the way to go, even a potato will be able to handle XCloud and if you eventually do upgrade, you'll be able to play everything else, including Playstation games!Still want a PS5. Just due to the nice games it will have...that will eventually come to the PC!

I kinda see it from a different perspective. I just want to pay for what I actually want to play and I know that it is mine.Sony fans aren't insane for wanting to stay on Playstation. It's just the contrast Gamepass presents that makes them look insane for not considering playing on Xbox's platform even if it's on PC. I know that sounds like a backhanded compliment but let me explain.
Paying full price for games is the NORM. Gamepass is what is insane right now.
It's kinda like somebody offering you a fantastic deal on a car you never really wanted. It sounds great but it's just not your thing. Nothing wrong with that.
Some people will get that car just because of the insane value, while others will say...I'd rather pay for the car I always wanted. There's something to be said about PS+ offerings and PS Collection as well. Maybe that's enough for some folks. Also PSNow is gaining a little traction so maybe there will be something comparable to gamepass in the future.
On the other hand, and honestly the best scenario, is when Xbox is selling the car you want with the same deal. If you love Forza, Halo, Gears and are hyped for Starfield along with the other games and hidden gems Microsoft n friends are dropping, then Xbox Series consoles and PC is utopia right now.
Unless I misunderstood, most third party games to my knowledge won’t be day one on Gamepass. As a matter of fact, it will probably take a while for most third party games to come to Gamepass in general.Im a playstation guy, love the games and the platform but this covid next gen hasnt hyped me as much. Even when announced, I really didnt get the XSX appeal with its gamepass. I chose my platform based on the games I have most connection with. Im not gonna lie, I do wish some titles were on PS like Forza Horizon, Gears of War, Flight Simulator etc. And then the E3 show happened and at the end of almost every single trailer: "Day one gamepass". And considering how often I see GP on discounts I was like wait...I can play all these new games, day one if I wanted with a single subscription of under $100 a year (taking advantage of discounted GP). And on the other side I have to think if I want to part with $70 for each game on PS5. Sure, ill miss out on the big exclusives from PS but I never said I wont buy it later as well.
Im at a similar spot where as playstation fan I bought an xbox360 first and then a PS3 when the slim version came out because at the time it was just a better purchase and took awhile for those exclusives to pile up. Now I feel like im in the same spot, that maybe ill go for XSX first and get a PS5Pro or slim later. This time being because I get the appeal of gamepass. Its a financial decision but I also play a shit ton of third parties. And not gonna lie, even Halo Infinite got me interested again. Not to mention I can find XsX way easier than a PS5 atm. Anyone else in a similar boat?
Maybe known to many but I just realized that gamepass offers day one releases as well. Thats insane money saved. Especially on third party. Once that sunk in, now I see where MS is going with this. Of course ill get the PS5 but it wont be before XSX.
For sure. They'll probably pick up a few rare ones like Yakuza LAD. But mostly cheaper games, indie games, AA games coming day one - which frankly is fine with me too. I like a lot of those and getting to try them all at no extra cost is cool. I sorta enjoyed Aragami 1, but not enough to buy the 2nd. Now I get it day 1 without really thinking about it, and I don't mind not owning it either. Lots of games like that can be a fun supplemental addition to your gaming library.Unless I misunderstood, most third party games to my knowledge won’t be day one on Gamepass.

Yes. I am agreeing with you. Not sure what the contention is. But most gamers aren't primarily JRPG focused is all I said. I have a PC and a Series X and primarily play on PC but cross progression is nice because sometimes I like to play in the living room on my series X. So even with a PC it's not pointless. But you should get a PC. Much better than PS5 and Series X (And I have all three).Okay? It still doesn't change that Xbox did nothing in this E3 that makes me want to switch systems, which what OP was asking. Also If I really wanted Xbox games I would just get a PC because not only it gets Xbox games but also gets Japanese games that Xbox itself doesn't get.
I still feel the same way on that, but here I am with a Series X sitting in my den waiting for a new TV match.I think the RIGHT path to take is PC, personally. Especially the PC + PS5 combo.
But I do think it's awesome that Xbox fans have so many options, be it a console or PC.
Nah it's much cheaper to go the XSX + PS5 route and choosing XSX gives you incredible BC support.I think the RIGHT path to take is PC, personally. Especially the PC + PS5 combo.

I mean there's still an option to buy the physical game. Gamepass doesn't stop you from doing that. Neither does PSNow. Although I can understand the lack of temptation to buy if you've already played the whole game for "free".I kinda see it from a different perspective. I just want to pay for what I actually want to play and I know that it is mine.
Plus I love my physical games. That 1st time you're opening a new game case *whew* I love it
Oh yeah, and I totally understand that. It's why I don't really understand the console/platform war stuff. Just let people play what they wanna play and enjoy, it ain't that hard, lmao. I don't understand why it all has to be some debate that revolves around subjective opinions.I still feel the same way on that, but here I am with a Series X sitting in my den waiting for a new TV match.
As I get older, I find myself getting away from sitting at a desk trying to find the right game on Steam. End up not doing anything cause I'm not comfortable and I would rather spend more time in the living room with my girlfriend on a comfy couch.
I still like chilling out in the den browsing YouTube or whatever, it's just nice to have a separation from the PC. Doesn't mean I won't do a huge upgrade in the future on my PC, I just prefer couch gaming at this point and what Game Pass has to offer. PS5 still on the horizon, though.
Oh, def. But I mean, if you're interested and have the cash to do it, a PC can be an outstanding purchase. If you don't, there's the XSX and SS! I think it's awesome there are so many options for those interested.Nah it's much cheaper to go the XSX + PS5 route and choosing XSX gives you incredible BC support.
100%. Ever since the reveal of the PS5 I’ve been getting major PS3 vibes, which lime you I used for the odd exclusive here and there but did the bulk of my gaming on the 360.Already have 2 Series X
Have a PS5 on order - I am considering cancelling that and just waiting for more exclusives to hit. PS5 really feels like PS3 all over for me - It will be used for exclusives, nothing more
I was just having some fun, wherever you game, may you also have fun!You still didn't fix it though.
And thank you for suggesting that I get a PS5. I'll go do that when I have the chance.
As for Xcloud I really don't enjoy input lag so that's definitely not an option for me.
For me personally, both consoles arent worth it as of now. They really dont have games. I know ps5 has ratchet, returnal and demon souls. but those arent what is gonna make me buy the system. I need at least 3 triple AAA games like god of war, HFW, and uncharted 5 or new ip. Same for xbox. I am not interested in halo personally. I have mcc downloaded on my gamepass pc, and i havent touched it. I am waiting for fable, starfield, hellblade 2, avowed. I am more of rpg guy, so those games will be worth my time.
Plus my old gen ps4/x1s is still kicking ass. I have no problem with them aside of loading. other than that, solid game experience. I have library on both systems that i need to finish them. I am not interested in faster loading or 4k crap, so i have no problem in waiting until both new systems have solid games.
My little brother has the ps5 digital, and i dont touch it. No reason to use it.
