Agreed and hopefully said PS5 is quieter than my PS4 which can be so loud at times that I don’t even enjoy playing the exclusives much.

For me it’s not about being a fanboy, it’s playing where I get the best experience.

I feel like console noise shouldn’t have an impact on enjoyment of a product.

Also, you could always get a slim, which is a lot more quiet.

Playing multiplats in 1X I can get, 4K, etc

I don’t think that’s being a gamer I think that’s, idk.

So you actively ignore the exclusive games you can only get on Y platform to only play games you can get on XYZ platforms but would buy a iteration of Y platform without question?

It’s weird to not find one (let alone several) of the PS4 only games interesting but whatever, people don’t like everything I guess but then you’d buy a PS5 despite it, uhh probably being the same thing with the same franchises you’re already ignoring?

Seems weird and not typical consumer behavior Imo. Makes sense to get multiplats in 1X but uhh, you’ve got a ton of experiences waiting for you on the PS4. Try something new

 

I didnt say a word about exclusives..... I *only* stated multi-platform games.

All I said is CURRENT console of choice is the X1X. Prior to me getting the X1X It was PS4 all the way and the X1S I had was pretty much a dust magnet.

I still want Spiderman... I loved HZD, I have God of War from a recent deal, but am heavily invested in RDR2 still. Backlogs are a bitch.

 

 

And just to be clear, I have a PS4 Pro, and it's loud.. Mines not the new super quiet one either.

I think awp has one also? I vaguely remember him mentioning it in another thread, could be wrong though.

Sounds like you feel some type of way about this...

As someone who has owned all 3 Xbox gens, my Switch and PS4 have rendered the latest one obsolete. So he's not wrong...

Anyway, thanks for the post, Tyrok!


Counterpoint.

As someone who has owned all three Xbox gens including 2 OG XB1's, 2 XB1 S's, and currently 2 XB1 X's, my Xboxes get more playtime than my PlayStation Pro and Switch combined. So he is wrong. But could be right. I guess it depends on who you ask?

Doesn't matter. Happy New Year!

Come on Astro headset glitch #2! Missed the last one, so here's hoping!

Can you explain what you mean? Not sure what the first glitch was.

I’m a collector so I’m hyped for this hellblade deal. It deserves to be in my collection. I only go digital if the game is really cheap or doesn’t have to be added to my precious physical collection.

Just wondering if they’d add the keychain to my kh3 online pre order paid in full with 25% farewell gcu discount

Astro A50, regular price $299

Sale price $227 Xbox version

PS4 version listed at like $97.... BB sold a ton of PS4 headsets, and Astro sold a ton of xbox bases.

 

And of course most of us missed out..

Edit: $97.50

Free with Game Pass. Just sayin.

Some people prefer a physical copy instead of digital air.

Normally I am a Sony fanboy but I've been exclusively on my new X1X for the past several weeks after not having turned on my launch Xbone for well over a year. Game Pass is a steal at its current price of $70 for a year and I honestly prefer digital due to a lack of space to store any more physical games. Due to my trophy addiction, I'll still be getting new games on PS4 unless a multiplatform game launches on Game Pass but the X will be getting a lot more use going forward.

So do I.  I own every Forza game for the Xbox on disc...except for Forza Horizon 4 because I'm playing the Fuck out of it using game pass.  

 

I didn't make the post to start a physical vs. digital or Sony vs. Microsoft debate.  I posted it to point out another cost effective way to play the game.

Nearly everyone on this website own multiple copies of at least three different  Resident Evil games. No one knows how to save money here.

Is the gameplay for Hellblade repetitive? I heard the story is great but the gameplay drags. I could use something unique to hold me till RE 2.


Hold over? Not happening. The game is 6 hours or less. Definitely a rental.

Hellblade is amazing. Yeah, free with GamePass, but how many here actually own (or use) an Xbox One? Haven't touched mine since the Halo Wars 2 BETA...

Obviously you been gaming at just old 1080p or in upscaled 4k.

Or he could be like me. I am a PC gamer primarily so have been gaming in higher than 1080p for over 5 years at least but I have no use for an Xbox One X. I just deal with the mediocre PC versions that MS puts out for their few. Not sure why MS can't figure out their own OS but whatever.  Now if only by some miracle Sony would put theirs on PC too... I do own a PS4 right now because they put out enough great exclusives to make it worthwhile to own.

Also 4k is overrated compared to FPS. Sadly they are jumping resolution to 4k on the Xbox and running at 30 FPS. If I had the choice I would take 1080p at 60 FPS than 4k at 30 FPS.

 

Edit: Also I should mention that all this argument is silly because some guy just mentioned another way to get the game.

Some games do have the option of 60 FPS on the Xbox One X or 30 FPS at 4K. It all depends on the developer’s choice, not anything MS is doing.

Well obviously it is up to the developer but not all are doing that. Just stating how I feel on resolution compared to FPS not anything on MS.

Lol, only Best Buy can bring back the console wars. I don't think people have realized yet that the war was over long ago and there's only territories now.

Is the cycle for Battlefield usually about two years before it starts being dirt cheap and the dlc is given away?  I'd like to play Battlefield V, but I've been burned the last two times purchasing the game just before it hits about $15 and then purchasing the DLC passes just before they start going out for free.

News to me. 

 

I own the PS4 Pro, the Switch and an XB-X and the X is my platform of choice for nearly all third party releases because those are by far the best console versions of the games.

I was a HUGE Xbox guy, chose the One over PS4 at launch, and then flipped to PS4 as my primary console. I just recently got an X over the holidays but I will still use the PS4 as my primary console. No slight to the Xbox because it is an amazing system. The thought of having to rebuy shit like RDR2 or any other multiplat titles makes my head hurt lol. Personally I don’t see why there are so many arguments between consoles. Yea the X is more powerful, but I say just game on the console you prefer. Most of my friends are on PS4 this gen which is why I chose that platform. The arguments are fucking stupid at this point.

The only reason this. “console war” even started in this thread was because someone said that the Xbox One was “obsolete”. I play all the platforms and have all the consoles in my house (though the Switch is technically my son’s).

Sony has kicked ass in exclusives this gen. I only prefer to play on my “obsolete” X1X because it just plays multilplatform games better and I like the controller. I also own way more multiplatform games and love the Forza Horizon series.

GamePass is also fantastic.

The funny thing about the One X “being better to play games on the PS4” is that the difference is so tiny compared to any other generation. There was a much bigger difference in multi platform games last gen and the gen before than the One X versus even the base PS4.

Quit saying, “games are so much better on One X” when they really aren’t that different and a lot of Digital Foundry differences wouldn’t be noticed unless you have a direct side by side comparison.

Oh, and I have all 3 systems and love my One X, but this “It’s miles better on One X” is a joke.

People on here making it sound like it’s a leap from PS1 to PS2 graphics lol.

Well, games like the first Red Dead Redemption are indeed miles better on X1X than any other console. And that’s a whole sector not even being discussed is BC and X1X enhancements to them. Some are truly stunning.

And bwteeen a regular PS4 and the X1X, I do see a very significant difference in both graphics and frame rate. If you don’t see a difference you need a better 4K TV or your eyes checked. Between the X and the Pro, sure, not as significant.

And I’m sure the PS5 will be even better.

100% correct.
Ps4 exclusives are much better than xbox.
Gamepass imo is better than psnow.
Edit: and lets not forget backwards compatability....

I have *always* prefered every racing title on the xbox due to the controller. Nothing wrong with the dualshock, but the elite i picked up just wins.
Gotta say the switch pro controller i like, but the + and home button layout is too close for me. I hit home on accident or have to look down and make sure im pressing the right one.

And the buttons being swapped... gets me all the time.

If you have a 4K TV the difference in games on X1X vs Pro is much more noticeable than PS3 vs 360.

I got it digitally for $23.99 using a 20% off PSN purchase coupon. Good news this time around is there is no season pass since they don’t want to split the player base. So once you buy the game, you get everything along with their battle royale mode next Spring as well.
