Not planning on either one of them this holiday due to financial reasons. That being said, Kena looks awesome and is coming to PS4 so that’s where I’ll play it. If money wasn’t an issue, I would still do Xbox. Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4 will look next gen enough for me to get on board.

If Microsoft stopped releasing their games for PC I wouldn't play them.
Yes I'm sure many people would prefer to never play them, but personally that would lead me to buy an Xbox too because I'm sure I would love to try scorn, halo, fable, avowed, the medium.

Are you kidding me?

And people are out here throwing tantrums over Spiderman in avengers and potential timed exclusives for PS5?

Meanwhile these petty deals for Yakuza and Tetris exist?

The weird thing is: PS4 version will be released along with PC/Xbox One/XBox Series X version. Only PS5 version is delayed. But what's the point? The PS4 version will run in 4K on a PS4 Pro and PS5. Perhaps not in 60 fps like a real PS5 version, but is that really going to stop Yakuza fans from picking up the game on Playstation? If Yakuza PS4 supports PS5 boost mode, there's no need at all for a separate PS5 version.

PS5: Spider-man

XSX: The Medium, Scorn

These are the games I care about the most from those lists, so... 🤷‍♂️

Hmmm, just going by this list I'm leaning towards PS5. I know Spider-man is huge for some folks but it's more of an icing on the cake for me. Kena, Godfall and deathloop win it for me. I'm not interested in sports or horror titles and haven't enjoyed an AC game in a long time. Outriders is another I may play but it's on both lists.

That's good to know! I thought it was delayed for all of Playstation. Looks like I'll be able to day one that then. :messenger_savoring:

For everyone with a decent pc the answer will always be the same: PS5 because exclusives, no xbox because I can play their games on PC.
If Microsoft stopped releasing their games for PC this poll would be more balanced.
The poll would be the same, even if PS5 was launching with zero games. People just cant get out of console war mode and answer a hypothetical question based on the games listed in the OP.

Ps5. X is DOA due to lack of exclusives.

I have a PC which enables me to experience a buffet of games for a tiny price and I do feel incredibly shitty considering those studios deserve to earn much more.

The X strategy is all wrong. By allowing their titles to go to PC means I have zero reason to upgrade.

Honestly probably The X Box X for The Medium in terms of pure day 1 line up.

But your forgetting Cyberpunk for both and Silent Hill for PS5 😉

Yep, it could be missing Spiderman and Kena and still be exactly the same.

But the PS4 version will be playable on the PS5? So there paying so the PS5 version doesn't get a patch? 🤯
That's the way it seems right now unless they're just late with announcing the patch but Xbox has been marketing Yakuza 7 lately

Of course it will PS5 compatible when the game launches in late November. PS5 compatibility testing is now a requirement of Sony's vertification process.

don't care for any of them tbh

but PS5 has extra power from PS4 and if they allow that to be used in VR games and Dreams, I'm in. If not, I'm holding to PS4 + psvr until something better appears, not necessarily by Sony

Playstation 5 for Spiderman , Kena and Deathloop. I'm also carrying over from PS4. Scorn , The Medium and Yakuza 7 I would also buy day one if I was getting both.

The PS5's is actually quite great.

I liked the original Spiderman, but tbh I feel a smaller scale title, with less bloat, could be a much tighter, more focused experience.
I love Bugsnax as a concept, puzzle hunting is my shit, as is Astrobot. Godfall seems neat enough.
There's also the fact that basically everything at the PS5 Event seems slated for 2021. It's a staggeringly strong first year, beside launch.

The XSX by contrast has fuck all "for the next couple years".

As long as it has the best version of Black Ops Cold War I'll be getting Series X.

Spiderman is the only game on either list that has sure fire hit all over it, and sadly I still don't view that title as a system seller. Unless we get a surprise this is gonna be one of the weakest launch lineups ever

Won’t be buying any launch games, will buy Xbox for backwards compatibility, controller, and preferring MS franchises to Sony’s.

also has there ever been a worse launch lineup than these? These consoles are either 2 years too late or 2 years early.

Both terrible, Spiderman could be fun though.
But Im not buying these consoles for their launch games.

GTA 6, God of War 2 and Naughty Dogs next game alone would make PS5 worth a purchase a for me though
