The Medium is for now officialy announcend only for Xbox SX and PC.

Grounded will be only in Early Acces for now.

Gears Tactis launching at the end of the year and will by optimised for SX.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is first party exclusive.

When? It was JUST at the Microsoft conference under "console launch exclusive" IE timed exclusive.

Early access still means it isn't exclusive. Can I play it on Xbox one? Yes.

Your use of "Exclusive" seems odd. Why does it being optimized for SX matter - if it is on Xbox one?

Then why put it under "Xbox Series X:" it isn't.

Your thread title suggest PS5 vs XsX. Your List says "Xbox Series X:". Yet your response weeds out things like "early access" and "its being optimized" and then "its first party". To fix your Thesis.

Is this Xbox vs Playstation, or Xbox Series X exclusive vs PS5 exclusive?

Official Statement on the exclusivity of The Medium:

As exclusive games for new consoles, I consider all the games that will come out after its launch (and I assume that will be the case for Grounded and Gears Tactics). Early Access doesn't count for me.

Zelda BotW was an exclusive WiiU and Switch game. It's the same with Halo Infinite, Gears Tactics and Kona (PS4 and PS5 timed exclusive).

Good comparison.

From PS5 I'm waiting for demon's souls, spiderman, kena, ratchet, gt7 , project athia , horizon and little devil .

From Xbox i'm waiting for halo ,avowed and fable.

Although xbox has showed more exclusives, I think the quality of ps5's are far superior.

Possibly early on, but I wouldn't be so sure later down the road. Looks like Microsoft learned it's lesson well in that regard and bought high quality studios with high quality IPs. So I think the quality may even out much more than it did this gen where many Xbox exclusives were pretty crappy.

Early access counts. If I can get it else where it counts. That's just basic. Do you think they will just remove it when it launches else where?

The tweet is dated (more than two months old) yet you can find ones from two days ago saying the same thing.

So Microsoft put it under the "console launch exclusives" part and Major Nelson said it was coming to the Xbox one.  Yet neither is true.

That's fascinating.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

With all the respect in the world, I think your list is pretty unfair.
As already said by some, this list is more like:

"Playstation 5 only Vs everything on Xbox with optimized for X series X seal".

I consider it very unfair not to include games like Last of Us part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima ( and others that will have upgrades on the PS5 version) in this list. These games will undoubtedly have a significant improvement on PS5, they undoubtedly will have treatment similar to Halo infinite and that is why these games should be treated as "crossgen exclusives".
I mean, this list considers Gears tatics, tetris effect and other old games as "next gen exclusives", really?



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Exclusive:

PS5:

Astro's playroom
Demon's Souls
Destruction All stars
Gran Turismo 7
Horizon 2: Forbidden West
Spiderman Miles Morales
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Sackboy Big Adventure
Returnal

XSX:

Nothing

Console Exclusive:

PS5:

Quantum Error
Heavenly Bodies

XSX:

Halo Infinite
Grounded
Microsoft Flight Simulator
Gears Tactics
Scorn
The Ascent (maybe timed)
Hellblade II
Avowed
The Medium
Fable
Forza Motorsport
Everwild
Project Mara
The Gunk (maybe timed)
CrossFireX (maybe timed)
As Dusk Falls

The distinction between console exclusive and actual exclusive is the reason I have no intention of ever buying an XSX.

I feel like only us Nintendo fans should have a say in this poll as too many Xbox/PS fans are going to just vote for their preferred device based on brand loyalty.

I gave Sony's show a 6/10 and MS's a 8/10. Halo Infinite was a hardcore bust, but the rest of their launch lineup looks fantastic compared to Sony's, especially considering I can try most of them out and keep/stop playing whenever I want with no financial regrets due to GamePass.

Regardless, I'll still primarily game on the Switch.

Please delete this reply it was an accident.



Looks like no matter which way you go, there's more games than we can play.

I'm looking forward to learning more about features and pricing but the future looks bright for us gamers. I guess the bigger concern is when are some of these games coming out? Which ones will be years away and which ones will be cancelled?

Why wouldn't we? I mean I don't play PS4 because it's Sony. I choose that because it has more than a cycle of Halo/Gears/Forza. Branding doesn't mean much.

(Titles above listed in order of personal interest.)

I'm also interested in Call of the Sea and Bright Memory Infinite, both of which will also be available for the Series X. Call of the Sea won't make it to the PS5 readily, it appears, and is slated for release this year.

To take what's bound to be the unpopular position, I liked the Series X offerings best. Only the top four games I just listed for the PS5 are must-owns to me. Everything else falls below all of the games I've mentioned interest in for the Series X so far. Also, none of those four games are slated for release this year or will likely come out within the next year's time for that matter. Cumulatively, this makes the Series X of much greater interest to me right now than the PlayStation 5. The PS5 line-up honestly just has a more straightforward, commercial feel to it overall. The Series X line-up looks more creative and I'm very much looking for legitimately new experiences in this medium right now. (And yes, I want to play as womanz just in general because I am one, sorry. Selfish, I know.) I know, I know, my tastes are weird. But you asked!

Not to be a knob but I really couldnt play games with you. That is legit a list that I think could potentially put me off gaming.

Good on you though. Goes to show how different peoples tastes are.



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st
