You still think all of those games without release dates are coming? It's August

From what I read they were not talking about MS upgrade program at all... the guy you quoted did throw it in that quote and people started to laugh at him.

The quote/link is completely out of context... that is why people laughed.

Ok....yeah, I don't know. I know this guy has saying folks can upgrade from XSS to XSX "for free"

Just as Microsoft planned lol.

To make things better you can get XSS on a payment plan, saving you money. With gamepass you have a free digital library of unlimited games.

It all part of the chain. You can upgrade your XSS to a XSX for free once stock is more plentiful too. If you're impatient there's literally zero reason to not buy a XSS now unless you are biased or have a hate boner for Microsoft for whatever reason.

I was disappointed after the successful Xbox One run Sony did not also consider a payment plan for PS5. Even though I hear they had a decent trial in asia.

But the big thing here is the PS5 digital is nearly the same as a regular PS5, so only $100 is slashed off. XSS is $200 off and with x cloud you get around it's weaker hardware. Something many dont consider at first thought.

And again you can upgrade for free anyway to the real Xbox Series X anyway if you get the finance plan.

Dude is in for a rude awakening.

Hehe with Forbidden west delayed. Xbox wins easy plus Flight simulator is the highest rated console exclusive of this year so far on Metacritic :)
Flight Simulator is the port of a game released on PC last year, it has no place in that stupid list just like Death Strandings director cut.
Next we will be updating it with every port of last year exclusives from other systems _ like Ghost of Tsushima that it's just around the corner...

It's released on console now. Xbox gamers never played it. Game is new game for Xbox gamers.

So it counts. It's the highest rated nextgen exclusive.

It's a 2020 Xbox pc store and steam game. It has gotten a port for Series X now _ one year later of its release _ it has no place in a list of 2021 exclusives.
This thread is silly but here we are 11 pages in.

It was never on Xbox in 2020 lol.

Its only on Series console and PC.

2020- PC only
2021 Series Consoles.

Xbox gamers who own Series consoles playing now since its not cross gen.

You clearly clueless about the game and trying to downplay it as it has beaten all other console nextgen games from last year and this year on Metacritic. Its not remastered. Its separate version made for Series consoles from ground up as game so complex and demanding that straight port wont work. Watch DF interview

Hopefully Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 are also going to hit that 90+ mark, looking at FH5 it could be the highest scoring next gen game this year, be a nice turnaround for MS to have the top two or even three.

I'm not downplaying nothing, never mentioned anything related to the game aspects, quality, or whatever... just its date of release,
but of course that you had to play that card _ misrepresent my words on purpose, to make me look bad and deviate from the true subject of the discussion, have a nice one.

Flight Simulator, Psychonaughts 2, Forza 5, and Halo Infinite are big titles this year from Microsoft in 2021.

Forza and Halo alone are automatic system sellers, assuming consumers can get Xbox consoles easier this fall / holiday.

This fall / holiday season will really be a battle of who can ship more consoles to the stores as we know there are product shortages.

dash man is talking about the Microsoft upgrade option. He has it confused.



What part of the quote from the terms and conditions do you not understand?

"You may upgrade from Xbox One X, Xbox One S, and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition to the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S consoles only."

You cannot upgrade Xbox Series S to Xbox Series X. You can upgrade Xbox One to Xbox Series. Period.
That doesn't say anything about no upgrades for the Series consoles, your incompetence if amazing. All of that is specific to Xbox One only.

One of your previous links was a response to someone asking a question specific to the Xbox one too. Look at what you're posting

Neither is having a stellar year, but with Horizon delayed, the choice becomes easier for me: Ratchet (eye candy) and Returnal (a game I'd actually enjoy for a while) v. Flight Sim (eye candy), Halo (a game I'd actually enjoy, endlessly), and FH5 (inbetween).

Then there's Nintendo, which has Metroid (a game I'd LOVE for a while), but is the only one of the three I own at the moment. There's also SMT which I am wary of because I just don't think I'll have the time to enjoy it and MHR which I haven't picked up yet for the same reason.

My conclusion is that Covid blows, and all three need to pick up their exclusive game for 2022.

EDIT: I forgot about Psychonauts 2. New answer: Xbox

When your list falls apart, shift the narrative to semantics. Nice effort.
Friend, there is no narrative here, I am speaking the obvious of this situation.

On the day that the PS5 does not have exclusives as is the case with the Xbox today, I will say the same thing because they are facts.

Xbox doesn't have any more exclusives, ending.

This thread should be shut down as intentional console warring. They even added Nintendo as a survey option without listing the exclusives. Trash thread based on hypothetical release timelines without knowing the quality of most of the titles.

BTW, you've posted jack shit backing up your claim that XSS owners can upgrade to XSX "for free". So why don't you stop posting and get on that.....
You do realize All Access is a finance program for 24 months like with phones right? It's in the details on every retailer site that offers the program, no money upfront, 24 months, taxes only, take product home same day.

You shouldn't be this confused. Just like you should have paid more attention to the links you were posting talking about the Xbox One and NOT the Series S.

It's coming for Playstation, too...
"Meat's back on the menu boys!"

Seriously though, at that point I was just debating between Xbox and Nintendo. Sony just doesn't have it for me this year, which is good, because I have no idea how to go about finding one in Tokyo at the moment anyway.

Now, if it you said it were coming to Switch too, that might rebalance the equation.

Unfortunately no Switch version (yet). Would have been my favorite way of playing it.

No shit. None of that changes the terms of upgrades.

I'm not confused at all. I read the terms and conditions for the Xbox All Access offer. And if you think I missed something then please......quote it for me right now.

Here is the link again:

Read it carefully and find the part you claim is saying you can upgrade from XSS to XSX for free and then post it.

Poll results are an absolute joke.
Embarrassing really.
Well, back when Horizon: FW was in play, it wasn't so one-sided. And depending on whether you prefer Japanese or Western games and multiplayer or singleplayer, there's still an argument to be made. Plus, people (on forums) tend to pick their consoles based on the exclusives that matter to them, so it makes sense that even when a console objectively has fewer exclusives, those games might count for more in their eyes.

What's embarrassing is when people pick their console or brand and then start championing or trash talking exclusives depending on which "team" they're on. It's how I sort gaming fans from fanboys.

No your problem is you are reading a passage specifically for One owners looking to upgrade and confusing that for only One owners can upgrade.

But it's clear you're too stubborn to realize your mistake. The one you keep making over and over so good luck to you.

From the Xbox All Access main page:

How to upgrade​

Upgrade your Xbox One with Xbox All Access to Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.


Pretty clear. You can upgrade Xbox One to Xbox Series S|X. That's it. So post some proof or don't post.

Prior to Horizon 2 being delayed I would have probably said a draw between ps and xbox . But the delay makes me think xbox by a bit assuming they meet their release targets.

If Sony has no surprise announcements which lead to 2021 releases and if MS doesn't delay any of it's 2021 releases....

XSX has the better 2021 lineup.

I think it's just better to not look at it as platform exclusive and rather what is that company's first party output as a whole. Who cares if it's coming out on platform X or Y, whether it's their own platform or others, too. Are they creating IP/titles that interest you or not and go from there. Odds are very likely that yes, they will be exclusive, but it's dumb to fret over exclusivity as PC and streaming and such becomes a factor more and more often.

So you want to steal even Deathloop from PlayStation?

Nice strategy.

What? No? It's not about "stealing" anything. That's a dumb way of looking at it. Deathloop is already coming out on PC anyway, just like how Xbox ""exclusives"" are coming out on PC, too. That's my whole point. But if you look at Deathloop being an *Arkane* game which we all now know is a Microsoft first party game then you can ask yourself if Deathloop and Microsoft's first party line up is of any interest to you. If it is, then you can maybe look forward to their future titles and it influences your purchasing decisions that way. There's no need to be locked in to this idea of platform exclusives, but rather just first party output.

Maybe that's just my opinion because I've been predominantly PC + PS for years until recently, but still PC focused, so I am more platform agnostic.

The game that wasn't GOTY in 2020 when it released is GOTY in 2021? Well.......ok
It wasn't running on a console in 2020, that was suppose to be impossible to do back then. Everyone expected the PC version to be incredible. All you have to do is read "We don't need roads" thread to see that, but you already knew this! Don't even act like you knew this game would run on a Series X properly! Remember the cloud is a myth, Microsoft won't be able to run games from that chants! Hell that alone makes this console release GOTY caliber! Hide your head in the sand if your want too but; MS just released a ground breaking game on a console running on the cloud! The crazy thing is it works so, yea GOTY! Is there another console title running out of the cloud that's as groundbreaking as MFS? I didn't think so!

Hades wasn’t on console in 2020 and won more GOTY awards than MSFS on PC. MSFS running on console was never impossible. It runs on PCs with lower specs. Besides, FS was announced as coming to Xbox a long time ago. That is silly rationale for GOTY to me but you are free to your opinion.

WTF Xbox pc store? Its called Windows store not Xbox PC store lol.

It was on Windows store on PC via PC game pass and Steam only.

Xbox store is on Xbox consoles. Which people are using this year to buy/download Flight Sim on Series consoles. For Xbox its a new game as they never had access to it in 2020 on Xbox consoles.

Look bro. Just take an L and move on. You clearly got no clue about anything. Just making a fool out of yourself.

No, you can have MS first party Deathloop for this year, but man you gotta think for a second here, should you really use Deathloop to boast exclusive lineup? It just proves my point how bad exclusive situation is this year for PS that PS fans are capping for a MS 1st party studios game to boast their exclusives lineup. Lol.
