I'm not mentioning the Switch because it's the unanimous victor of this generation and that is due to system seller games, something both PS5 and Series X lack.
Okay, but I'm talking about someone wants to buy a console right now. Anything can happen 2-3 years down the line and I fully expect both consoles to be in the swing of things when it comes to games. I also wouldn't call quick resume an early adoption feature when it something that will benefit gamers the entire generation, unless you are only referring to BC.
I agree with you on that. I wouldn't recommend either system in it's current state unless they really care about certain features.
Kinda sums up what I've been trying to say, Switch is running away because of system seller exclusives. It was a smart move from Nintendo to stagger their upgrade cycle to that of the HD twins. While MS and Sony both lack games to start the next generation, as well as being supply constrained, Nintendo already has the games and the systems in stores. And I guess Nintendo is pandering to the hardcore a bit with the Switch upgrade coming.
I call quick resume for early adopters as those are more likely the hardcore crowd that actually cares about that feature. Sure it will benefit gamers all generation, just as BC, but the few extra seconds saved with quick resume won't matter to most. Certainly not after coming from a generation with horrendous install and load times. The SSD more than takes care of that. We needed quick resume last gen.
I already bought Returnal and Ratchet & Clank is one of my favorite series, so for me the choice is obvious, besides looking forward to psvr 2. No hurry to get one yet through, still happily playing FS2020. For XBox my choice is more, do I put the money towards a new gaming laptop with 3070 rtx, or make room for a Series X. At some point I'll need a new laptop anyway, and the price difference between a powerful regular laptop and a great gaming laptop is basically a Series X.
None of the things I want are for sale here yet, so for now it's all just speculation lol.
