There is no reason for people to switch next gen unless there is some major issues with the PS5.

They will need a few aces up their sleeve to cause a change,

Actually, there is a reason. It's called Game Pass.

If the three key points (price of the console, performance of multiplats, (timed) exclusive content for multiplats) are heading for virtual parity, then Game Pass will be an ace because it's gaming for cheap. The lack of game ownership won't be a concern because both PS and Xbox gamers have already been willing to give up their ownership rights as the evergrowing share of digital game sales proves.

To this day I have never bought a digital copy of a game. Im pretty sure there is a large percentage of the gaming market that like me are never planing to go digital. Some just dont trust it, some like resale. But this push for all digital that MS is aiming for could be a reason for people to skip xbox all toghether. Im willing to bet its more older gamers like myself who buy wide range of games but spend less per game. By that I mean loot boxes, cosmetics maps and all that other bullshit that "AAA" publishers try to shove down our throats. 

Edit: correction, I did buy a digital game. Hellblade. But there was no physical version for it.

If someone switches from PS4/PS5 a console with amazing games to Xbox just because GamePass then I'm lost for words..



No mention of VR, it might not have set the world on fire (yet) but it still has decent sales and a dedicated following. The lack of any VR plans is what keeps me away from XBox.

Why? It's a service that caters to the console gamer. 

It's value for money for a great product. Is that not what the core concept for a console has become?

Basically sub to one service that have most of the content you like and torrent whatever you want that isn't there.

Subscription will kill triple A games and devalue the games to smartphones business mobile games LOL

But gamepass is not locked to the xbox. Not even xcloud. Its mean to have both on the current phone in your pocket or even lowest level pc/laptop. Its still not a reason to go xbox.

Pirates are going to pirate no matter what. Give a thief a chance to steal, they’ll do it. There’s no need to make up hypotheticals or anything for them, just give them a way to steal and it’ll happen. 

How does this relate to GamePass though? There’s no exclusive content on GamePass and every game on it can be bought to own. It’s the exact opposite of all of those streaming services.

Actually if everything start to become subscription base model, all company will start to make exclusives content. Netflix early day are free and don't have any exclusives, But day by day as time goes and many company follow, they starting to make exclusives content. 

I bet with my both ear, if Subscription succeeded in converting ownership model to subs model, we will see the same situation with Video streaming. All company will start making exclusives content. 

Also the problem with subs payment  is how subs will devalue the games quality.
