With what we know about both, it has to be the Xbox Series X. Quite surprising considering I completely skipped the Xbox One after being primarily a 360 gamer last generation. They seem to be hitting all the right notes.
Sony really dropping the ball on building pre-launch hype for PS5 this year so far. Quite the opposite from what they did with PS4 throughout 2013.
This interests me, we pretty much know that all the big games will be reprised on their respective consoles and we also know that 3rd party will continue to support both so in many ways its a continuation of the present with the benefit of better hardware,sure there will be some who are attracted by tflops numbers but speaking for myself I'm past the point of looking at blown up still images indicating a difference so minor that a pointer is needed and even if I had eagle eyes most often in game I'm to busy taking action or moving through the game world to even look, so honestly I can't see any compelling reasons to move from one platform to the other and that includes moving in either direction.
Another thing that intrigues me is the excitement for all the new developers along with older ones being recast, why this interests me is history shows how damn hard it is to make a game that becomes the next Halo uncharted etc, and there's more to it than how many teams you have or how talented your team is, one of the reasons why you sometimes see a successful franchise continued past it's use by date besides wanting milk money, is because its damn hard, making one great game/ franchise doesn't automatically lead to more.
In my case I will do what I have done since the PS3 slim trade in old games and get both just not at once but the PS5 will remain my main platform because of my investment in that ecosystem and its games rather than me thinking its a better console, in that regard to me itI feels pretty much even in so far as both will have exclusives that take that extra step and 3rd party will be pretty much standard across both systems.Last edited by mjk45 - on 05 May 2020
