Forums - Gaming Discussion - Xbox One X Is Here, So Sony UK Just Announced A PS4 Pro Bundle For The Same Price

For the same money you can get a xbone x without games or a ps4 pro with a bunch of great exclusives. Very hard decision...

I cannot see apart from hardcore xbox fans anyone getting excited about X honestly. Anyways time will tell if 500$ mid gen console was success or not. Hope somehow we get numbers. Even if it sells half of the original I will be really really surprised.

Well people are saying price wise it’s not a good value so if they fix that, it’s a pretty sweet bundle. Though personally I would sell everything except Horizon. Which would make buying the bundle pointless.

In UK racing games are popular.



 

lol I always bring up this example, but it reminds me of when Disney would re-release one of their recent blockbuster classics the same weekend that some other animation studio's film would hit theaters. A bit dirty, but effective.

In relation to PS4 though? The last metric I've seen is that the PS4 has nearly, but not exactly, double the exclusive software when including every game under the sun. 

Honestly though, I was just making a lighthearted joke  

Well. It does share over 1,000+ games with the Xbox One at last count I think.
Shares a ton with the PC too.
Something like over 90% of the games library on the Xbox One/Playstation 4 are shared with each other and other platforms, that's the reality of the industry today as developers/publishers try to push their games to as large of an Audience as possible.

I mean... It's great to claim you have a ton of exclusives but... The reality is. Majority are multi-platforms regardless if it's Xbox One or Playstation 4 or PC.

I think what Microsoft is attempting to do though is leverage the 6th and 7th gen library's to make it's game situation seem more favorable to the competition, some people are obviously going to lap it up especially if they get the Resolution, Framerate and Anisotropic filtering boost on the Xbox One X.

Again I think you guys are interpreting a little too much from my comments. It had nothing to do with claiming the PS4 has "tons of exclusives", especially because it didn't have a lot of standout ones till this year. I've been very critical about the PS4 exclusive library.  All I did was joke and then Flashfire talked about exclusive numbers. Which, yes, if we're saying Xbox One has a lot of exclusives you can't play on other consoles - than the appropriate metric to compare it to is it's competing console. And in that perspective it doesn't. 

Of course third parties take up the majority of the market. But that's not the argument. The argument had nothing to do with anything but x and y comparisons, not legitimacy, relevancy, or standhold within the industry.

That being said PC has the most exclusives anyways. And a lot of the time the best third party versions.

And I agree that what the X is trying to do is what you explained, and I think it's doing great especially for the price . I didn't think that this would spiral into a "thing",  an actual debate, lol

We do love Disney classics. And we do love PS4 and its exclusives.

I find it funny that that people dig at ms or underplay what they are doing with backwards compatibility. Ya this bundle is cool and their exclusives are great. But what ms are doing with bc should be applauded loudly. They r doing things for free that others would charge you for. It's truely 'for the player' move. Go look at knights of the old republic and oblivion upgrades... free.

If you want to call a prerequisite of a 4K TV and an Xbox 1 X, free, go right ahead. MS aren't charging for these updates as it wouldn't fly. They are giving people more incentives to go out and purchase their new console. They need as many incentives as possible at the price point they're asking.

It's amusing, but it'd be funnier if the bundle was better. If the X1X does well enough maybe we'll see some follow up bundles over the next few months.

What games would you take out and/or add?

I'm referring more to the value. As barkley noted earlier in the thread, if you shop around you're saving £24. It's not nothing, but you save more with just the standard Pro + [current new release bundle title]. Even if you're lazy like me and would just buy everything on Amazon it's still only £33 cheaper and that also includes FIFA18.

On a personal level i'd replace GTS with something like R&C. Would make it an even lower value bundle for everyone else, but i really dislike driving sims :p
