I'd say my PC is capable. RX 5500XT GPU and a Ryzen 5 3600XT CPU along with 16GB ram and 1TB M.2 drive. Played RE8 with max settings in 1080p with no RT at 140 FPS. I don't have game pass but can get Ultimate for 3 months for £1.

Unless you really want the XSS for convenience or to play your Xbox backlog I think PC is probably the way to go for you.

My PC is a 5500XT, on say Gears 5 the Series S smokes it.
Xbox Gamepass has different games than the PC version so getting Ultimate you get access to both.

Its not the start that matters, it is the sales in a years time. Wii U had a good start too.
Everytime I see this, it seems some ppl dont remember how The Death of Consoles articles, narratives came hard n fast because of how bad it was selling early on. First month, maybe it looked good. After that the writing was on the wall pretty early on:


"To date, the Wii U has sold 5.86 million units of hardware"

Article was written Jan 2014, the Wii U launched Nov 2012, a full year before the PS4, XBO.

We know for a fact the PS5 has passed that number in approx 6 months. Series consoles might have too or are close to passing it.

It took until 2015, 2016 for the Death of Consoles narrative to go away. All thanks to Wii U sales.
