Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What will be your second platform of choices for next gen after Switch (outside PC/smartphones/cloud gaming)

My second consoles will be

PS5 34 73.91%
 
Xbox X 11 23.91%
 
Xbox S 1 2.17%
 
Total:46

PlayStation 5. I finally got a PlayStation 4 this year, and I am enjoying the heck out of it. I'm playing exclusives and multiplats. Unless there's some killer exclusives for the PS5 early on, I don't plan on getting one until at least 2022. Probably later, as I'll likely wait for a Slim version. And I'll for sure get the Switch's successor, as Nintendo is my favorite game publisher.
I do wanna get a Gaming PC one day, but that's just a pipe dream. Even though the PC as an open platform has a ton of exclusives, there's very few that interest me.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

None. Especially now that Switch has been receiving lots of love from third party devs and indie devs.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Probably an Xbox, because of gamepass.
An all digital and cheaper(not the high end product)



Interesting how people already have established console preferences despite having no idea on what the hardware/games/price is going to be.

Personally I will go with whatever console offers the most powerful hardware.

Mostly buy new ps console when it has been out for a year,time between i catch up on my backlog from ps4 and PC and whatever i missed from Nintendo.

Not sure. I may buy everything but I find myself not playing anything for weeks on end. Right now, Xbox if Hellblade is a decent enough leap.

You shouldn't be surprised.



in 30+ years I've learned that Nintendo and Sony will always be in my home. Nintendo brings the exclusives and innovations, Sony brings the multiplats and also a bunch of exclusives. Xbox at its best can only give me a handful of exclusives that I Generally don't care about (Shooters and racers aren't really my thing) or are on PC anyway, and while they make an effort to be more powerful than the competition, I've never cared about graphics or performance over unique experiences, good storytelling, and fun gameplay.

I went all in on all three consoles this gen (Four, since Nintendo tried twice), and the only ones that got any play time out of me were the PS4 and Switch. WiiU got a lot of attention due to the Virtual Console and a handful of games (That I now have on Switch), but I have an emulator on my phone now so I don't need it. I have an Xbox One, but I've literally spent more time downloading and installing firmware on it than I have spent playing games on it. In fact, in the 5 years I've had it, I've only purchased seven games. Of those seven games, the only one I've really put any time into was titanFall...and I have the sequel on PS4 now so...

MY point is, I genuinely don't understand why people go for Xbox. The power difference is insignificant (And was actually lesser at the beginning of the generation),the exclusives are on PC, and what 'exclusives' it has are pretty bland and generic. Halo is pretty meh, Forza is a great entry in a genre I personally find boring, and while I do enjoy Gears of War I think it's also pretty bland and generic. Microsft keeps buying developers to foster faith, but have they done anything with any of them? Last I checked, Rare is still making terrible games and haven't done anything good since coming to Xbox, and I'll never forgive Microsoft for that.

For as long as I live and as long as I have a soul, I'll stick to Nintendo and Sony. It seems to be the safest bet. Nintendo exclusives are the best, their consoles usually have something that make them stand out (motion control, touch control, portability, versatility), I don't care that the power is less than the competition, and lately they've been absolutely KILLING it with indie support and lowkey third party support. I've got over 100 games on my Switch and it's probably my most-played console. Sony's exclusives are also pretty damn good, just a step below Nintendo's. and unlike Microsoft and even Nintendo, they reinvent and update and create new IP a lot more often. I mean, we recently got Horizon: Zero dawn, one of the best and most interesting new IP Exclusives of the last decade!

I'll take Mario, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Bloodborne, Spider-Man, Horizon: Zero Dawn, God of War, Zelda, Smash Bros, Mario Kart and various others over the holy trinity of Halo, Forza, and Gears.



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 6 this generation: 
Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III, Red Dead Redemption II

It's the same for me, Xbox exclusives are just not appealing to my personal preferences and, even then, you can play most of them on PC. Also, they still lack a lot of japanese third party support, which is pretty important to me.

Interesting that you've already decided to get the most powerful console having no idea on what features/games/price is going to be. ;p
