I will venture this question here for what should be the most intelligent group: after seeing the ps5 does anyone think from a consumer standpoint that the Xbox isn’t going to be enough to set it apart or really drum up launch sales?
I am definitely someone who may be late to upgrade, but I feel like the console design of the Xbox one (not sure the right name) is bland, the name is confusing, and it’s more like a PC upgrade, good specs under the hood but it looks like any CPU tower. Thoughts?
I guess I don’t have a vested interest in like Microsoft stock I’m just kind of surprised there’s been so little wow to me personally.
Too early to tell but if you only care about which console will outsell the other then just get a PS5.
The Series X is the more powerful console and it will probably price match the PS5 disc version.
Game Pass and MS Rewards is a far superior value compared to anything else in gaming.
My entire Xbox One library will play on the Series X day one (Sony has not been as transparent on BC as Xbox but I'm sure their 1st party games will all run on the PS5 at least).
My Xbox One accessories and controllers will all work on the Series X as well.
Most of Xbox's marketing of the Series X has been catered to existing Xbox owners for the most part since why would a PS4-only owner care about Xbox One BC or Xbox accessories being forward compatible.
All that being said Playstation is a more popular brand globally (and is sold in more countries) so I expect it to outsell the XSX even if the Xbox July show is as great as I think it will be.
