Not yet, I bought the Xbox One X back in January, and this weekend I added an XBO S to the bedroom.
I don't have any surface device or Windows 10 purchase line-up light now, but I will be looking into them in the future.
I had the Xbox One X pre-ordered, so had it on release day.
One great feature though is that you can stream Xbox One games to a PC via the Xbox app if your PC is not high-end.
So much is wrong in these claims its not even worth making an argument... have fun over there with barely any exclusive games with real quality, enjoy the pseudo 4K thinking its on par with a $1000 computer and has more exclusive dominance than nintendo and sony
None of the consoles are doing "real" 4k 100% of the time, doesn't matter if it's Xbox, Playstation or Switch... So not really an argumentative point that falls in your favor.
If you want 4k or better... That has been on PC for the last 17 years.
PC has some great strategy titles for sure, but Switch and/or PS4 blow it out of the water in terms of games library.
No they don't. The PC has a game library that spans decades.
There are more games on Steam alone than there are games on the Playstation 1, 2, 3 and 4... Combined.
You know what? Add the PSP and Vita game libraries as well and I would still confidently say the PC has more games.
This gen there's only 8 PC exclusives I'm really interested in, and that's if you count Civ 6 (coming to Switch), Cities Skylines (also coming to Switch), and Warhammer Total War (Obsolete now that Total War II is out.)
Fantastic. Good for you. There is none on Playstation or Xbox that interests me even in the slightest, couple on Switch I wouldn't mind playing, but won't lower myself to 720P.
But just because there are certain games that don't interest you, doesn't mean there aren't games or aren't good games that may interest others, we are delving into personal taste territory here which is pretty anecdotal.
Aside from Indies I don't have any digital games linked to those accounts. It's all physical.
I don't buy DLC. They are not worth it. $20 more for maybe five to ten hours of extra content? No thanks.
Edit: I know where you're going with this, and I agree to an extent. Yes, there is DRM on consoles, but the important thing is that consoles at least offer a DRM free physical version. GoG has a great library, but it is still missing about 80% of quality AAA multiplats. And as far as I know humble bundle just offers up a steam code, or some other DRM version.
Physical is DRM.
You cannot take a game disc from the Playstation 4 and drop it into a PC that is running a similar *Nix derived OS, OpenGL derived API and a Jaguar+GCN hardware.
That is by itself DRM, you are being limited.
Rather... What needs to happen is for Emulation to take place to make such a thing a reality.
The only true DRM-free gaming is GOG.
Lastly xbox x released a year after the pro and a good bit more powerful. So it will be harder for ms to make a big jump to next gen if they want to keep the price at 400. Whereas Sony can easily make a big jump over the pro for 400. They hold all the aces.
We don't know any of that for sure.
And given that the PS5 is using a Zen CPU and a Navi GPU, I doubt performance will be an issue.
We have zero clue what the final hardware is.
Many thought that the Xbox One X was going to be running with Ryzen because of various "hints" and "leaks" and "Information" from supposedly "credible" sources which turned out to be complete and utter furfies. (Those who knew hardware knew Ryzen wasn't going to happen.)
So going to a platform that plays the same multiplatfom games and has zero exclusives? Ok. Also the UI is an ugly and convoluted mess, an opinion which is pretty much agreed upon within the gaming industry, it has slow install times and the X1X is highly crippled by the S version. Go for it.
Having exclusives only matters if you care about said exclusives.
There are gamers in the world who couldn't care about Spiderman, Horizon, Halo... But will play the latest Battlefield/Call of Duty/Fortnite/Overwatch 24/7 and nothing else.
As for the Xbox One X being crippled by the S console... Well. Yes and no.
Allot of older games that are unpatched look like ass on the Xbox One X, but newer releases tend to be a step up on the Xbox One X over all the other consoles.
This is also why Switch literally doesn't have any of those features and judging by sales nobody in the real world gives a s**t.
Correct me if I am wrong... But the Switch appeals to a very particular demographic... There are more gamers on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Android, iOS and so on that do care about those features.
If the system had a functionality of fully dual booting between X1 and Windows10 OS that would be a very tempting thing to get me to consider buying one, but that said, behind my couch already has a ps4/switch and gaming PC hooked to my projector so even if the X1 would open up to being a fully functional PC it still wouldn't fill a gap in my systems which doesn't already have a more powerful system in there doing it.
I prefer to have my consoles on the TV... And then use my PC on my QHD monitor. - Why? Because.
Everyone has different needs/wants/desires/tastes and thus want a different setup, so that is perfectly fine.
I would never be able to use a console like a PC though.
You're free to choose whatever you like the best, but if you think Microsoft is significantly better in the long run, you're most likely sorely mistaken.
There is no best. Every... And I mean EVERY, platform has it's strengths and weaknesses.
What we need to do as individual consumers is to weigh all the Pro's and Con's and make a purchasing decision that meets our individual criteria.
Or you do yourself an even bigger favor and buy a PC. A few facts:
almost unlimited backwards compatibility, biggest exclusiv library, best experience in multi platform titles, M+K and Controller, best multimedia station
It's not "almost unlimited backwards compatibility". - It is unlimited.
You can run any game released at any time on the latest and greatest PC. No exception.
If you hadn't already picked up on it by now, he's very much against wanting to use a PC for nearly anything. He wants consoles to fully replace PC's and handle all their tasks and what not. He's used consoles to pay his bills and what not, while opting as much as possible to use them for daily computing tasks.
If he wants to do that... So be it.
But there is a reason why the PC remains the platform of choice for productivity tasks such as those... Because to put simply, it's faster and more convenient.
You're definitely right about PS4 OS, they have left it by the wayside. The latest numbered update, 6.0, only had stability improvements, no new features at all.
To be fair... Microsoft's bread and butter business is Operating Systems, so it's only natural they should have the edge in that aspect, it's what they are supposed to excel at.
If this means I do not have to see another one of your god awful "integration" posts on a Playstation thread, than I'm happy.
He is more than allowed to participate in those threads. - Hopefully he does, more perspectives is never a bad thing.
