Why are you going to go the way you're going?

When do you think you'll graduate to the XSX, if you don't immediately get it?

I'm getting it day one to basically play current gen games in their best form. Also Game Pass.

I will get a PS5 at launch as well if there is a launch game that interests me, though a GoT patch would probably also away me.

Still debating. Will eventually get both consoles. Don’t know which first. Unless Halo has extraordinary reviews.

I'm not getting either of the consoles. I skipped this gen and I plan on skipping year 1/2 of next gen. Neither console does anything for me but if I was to get one it would be the xbx.
Good point, I'm thinking there are bound to be teething problems and maybe i should wait for the Pro version.

I’m waiting for the incredible analysis from Digital Foundry, since I really have no idea how anything works, can’t formulate my own opinions, but just love parroting out technobabble that— in all honesty—a golden retriever would better understand...after directly comparing its cognitive functions and mental ability to mine.

Yes, I guess you could just say I’m your average Digital Foundry fan.

Zing zing! I will be tuning in to DF out of sheer bloody minded curiosity~ wondering how they might reinterpret things in that even handed way of theirs~

Day one due to BC, The Master Chief Collection, more powerful, Gamepass and Halo MP in general.

Sony never revived Socom and I don’t trust their ecosystem to keep carrying forward the gen after this one. Likely there’ll be another mess when the PS6 launches.

Best version of Game Pass games without having to spend 3x as much on a PC that outperforms the XSX, BC games that are enhanced, Halo, best console versions of Cyberpunk, Valhalla, fast loading, suspend feature, a possible enhancement of the best controller out there, etc. I bought the XB1X which had way fewer advantages.

Still debating. If MSFS is a launch game I might grab it simply for the audio set up in the living room. The Doom Eternal free upgrade also got me excited. Want to play the medium but I do also have a PC so I won't be missing out if I don't have one day 1.

Day 1 for XSX. I'm heavily invested in the Xbox ecosystem. I'll pick up a ps5 as well but that might be down the road a bit. Surprisingly, given i'm a bit older, the form factor and futuristic look of the white ps5 really isn't doing anything for me. I'll jump when the compelling games come out for it and there is a black version. White, in my setup would stand out like a sore thumb and bug the shit out of me.

I started off looking forward to this launch but the announced games coming out at launch for both systems, just don't really impress me. Some of that is to be expected at a system launch but it really does feel underwhelming, out of the gate at least.

I’m getting it day one because my X is playing up with external drives, and I have 400+ digital games not including game pass that will all still work on the XSX. It’s a no brainer.

I’ll buy a PS5 the day that a great online MP exclusive comes to it too.

also I can’t vote in polls? Is it cause I’m a new member, anyone?

I would assume so, we've had a bit of a Ree shitposting problem over the years.

Will be playing Xbox games on PC. I’ve been enjoying catching up on some of the games I’ve missed with GP.

I'd really like to I think. It should be good value for money considering the powerful hardware and game pass.

I have 100s of games and friends on xbox. Plus medium looks awesome and halo multiplayer is going to be awesome.
it also already is with MCC. It’s my most launched piece of software this gen between Xbox and Ps4. Can’t wait to hear more about Halo Infinite’s MP too!

Day one for XSX. Best versions of multiplats, Halo, Medium, Ascent, Tetris Connected, and GamePass. Plus I have a slew of current gen titles confirmed for XSX upgrades. Meanwhile PS5... maybe 2022 or so when HFW comes out? Or whenever SOCOM launches if that rumor is true. They have an extremely weak launch lineup imho outside of some timed exclusives that will be better when they come to XSX.

Day one for Xbox Series X. Super hyped for it. I already have more console exclusives for Series X than I had in 7 years total for Xbox One which was 5 games. Add in the multi-plats like Cyberpunk 2077, AC Valhalla, etc. and Game Pass for titles like The Medium and it's an easy decision for me. Also, I have Crossfire X campaign, The Ascent and Second Extinction.

For PlayStation 5, the deals they're making are of no interest to me as of yet and im only expecting to have a two game backlog for PlayStation 5 going into 2022 which would be Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

Day 1 for both even if they didn't have any games. I still have a huge BC library of games that will take advantage of these things.

Are those (at the moment) 12 people going with the other platform on day 1 really fans?

I'll be honest, I don't understand the other poll options. We're not Ree here, we can speak in plain language without fear of moderation, you don't have to talk about rival consumer electronics like they're Voldomort.


Off topic, but why is it always Harry Potter with those people? It's like it's the only work of literature they've ever experienced or something.

I respect this decision and mindset, but I don't understand it: Buying a new console to want to play old games? Why?

It's like saying, I'm going to buy a $5,000 PC with the latest and more powerful GPU, CPU, etc. so I can install all my SNES and N64 ROMs!

Like, I get that it's convenient to be able to play an old game when you feel like it. I recently played Okami on my PS3, but to me, a new console it's meant for experiencing new games, and hopefully, games that couldn't be done before.

Many Xbox fans get excited for BC but if you already have an Xbox One, you can already played all the BC games.

Gamepass seems really cool, and I think if I ever get an Xbox, I'll probably invest in a yearly subscription. (at least). I don't know many games for Xbox, but I'd love to try many of them for the price of three in a year. However, I think people don't realize that not all games will be on gamepass, and, while not confirmed yet, they could also remove games from it from time to time (if they do a business model like Netflix).

Go play Ninja Gaiden Black in 4K and then come back to shit on “old games”.

Yeah, Im a bit suspicious that some of those voting that will go for the other system are the same that voted for the return of Mattrick to Xbox on the other thread.
Day fucking one here.

Waiting for new Nvidia GPU prices. I'm due for an upgrade. If it less than a grand I may consider going for the GPU and buying the XSX if the launch lineups has a few must have games. I was saving for both systems, but the amount i have set aside could net me a very nice upgrade.

OP needs to include PC option.

I will be getting an XSX, I have invested in the eco-system way way more than PS, so no reason to get a PS5 until it becomes like 200-300$.
