Voted Xbox. Not only because of the full list but also the launch lineup is extremely barren for PS5 for me. The biggest game so far is the Spider-Man expansion. I have the platinum in Spider-Man but I am in no hurry to go back. Kenu or whatever that cross gen game was is also very appealing but it’ll be on Xbox later. Deathloop I am very interested in but it’ll be on Xbox later. And that’s it.

On Xbox on day one ill have Infinite, The Ascent, Medium, Gears Tactics, Scorn, and Tetris Connected and these are all day one on GamePass which means I can pay for the console and instantly have access to these six titles and others I am forgetting. And the superior third party games like Cyberpunk and Ass Creed. And games I have waited on finishing or playing on Xbone because of an XSX upgrade like Gears 5 and Horizon. Not really close.

I do hope Sony goes into detail about BC and upgrades to their games, if there is anything to get into. Because like Gears 5 and Horizon, I have PS4 games like Death Stranding, Days Gone, God of War, and LoU2 that I have put in the backlog but would bring out for PS5 upgrades.

IT is smart to wait (Seriously, any new console's first year is barren), but is PS4 is anything to go by, Sony will have a slow start but end with a bang whereas Xbox will start strong but flounder after a couple of years. that happened three generations in a row, now. I wouldn't put too many eggs into the basket of the one with the better launch even if I understand the desire to do so. 



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

Around the Network

The ones that interest me personally:

Exclusives

PS5

  • Horizon: Forbidden West
  • Returnal

Xbox Series

  • Halo Infinite
  • Forza Motorsport reboot
  • Fable reboot
  • Avowed
  • Everwild
  • Flight Simulator

Timed Exclusives

PS5

  • Ghostwire Tokyo
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits

Xbox Series

  • Call of the Sea
  • Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis
  • Lake
  • Second Extinction
  • Sable
  • Shredders
  • The Falconeer
  • CrossFireX campaign mode
  • The Medium

Will be interesting to see how things stand after the Sony August State of Play and the 2nd big show that Microsoft teased for later this year.



Forgot about the CrossFireX campaign. Is that 2020? Looked great and from Remedy. Control is another Xbone game I have but am waiting on the SmartDelivery patch to play through.



Second big show? I was under the impression that neither had another big show. Just that they will both be more in depth about the launch lineup exclusively and their pricing. Its rumored both have "held back" some games, but both companies wording have leaned more in about more detail of what they have already shown. 



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Good thing Xbox is in an entirely different position with drastically different goals than they were in those past generations. I’m going to own both consoles eventually, it makes complete sense to go with the stronger launch window.

Microsoft is actually rumored to have 2 more shows. One in August, which is apparently focused more so on hardware and services than games, where they are expected to announce Series S/Lockhart, and release date and pricing info for both consoles, as well announce what is going on with Xbox Live Gold (lots of rumors they are dropping it soon in favor of either online play as part of Gamepass, or free online play). However, it's doubtful we will see any new games there, since it's hardware and services focused, if they show any games will probably be new trailers or gameplay demos for games from the July show. The 2nd show is rumored for November, and was teased by Microsoft at the 53:48 mark in their July show, when Matt Booty said "Now, you may have noticed we didn't get to visit all of our Xbox Game Studios today. That means we'll have more to share later this year", which seems to imply that the remaining 6 XGS studios that weren't on the July show will have announcements on a second show later this year. It's also likely that a second show could have gameplay trailers or demos for some of the games that didn't have gameplay on the July show, as well as more Xbox Global Publishing announcements, since XGP only announced a single game on the July show, but are known to have many more in development. 

As for Sony, it's rumored that they have a State of Play coming in August where they will announce several more games and reveal pricing and release date info for PS5.



The reason I prefer xbox exclusives is because they are multiplayer focused and last longer. Sea of theive, Halo, Gears, Forza Horizon/Motorsport, and Everwild are games I will play multiple times. Whereas games like God of war and bloodborne do have amazing SP, but I know I won't play it more than twice once I am finished.

I can see Microsoft adding Xbox live to game pass similarly to what they did with xcloud, but there is no way it is going to be free. It makes Microsoft billions of dollars and unless they found another way to make more money by making xbox live free it just won't happen.

The reasoning behind making it free vs locking it behind Gamepass would be that Gamepass costs twice as much as both Xbox Live Gold and Playstation Plus, they'd be putting themselves at a pricing disadvantage against Sony next gen, unless they start offering multi-month discounts on Gamepass like they always have on Gold. Also, online play for Xbox games on PC is free, even though those games are using the same servers as the Xbox versions, which is unfair to the console owners. So while they would be losing alot of Gold revenue by making online free, they would be giving themselves a major advantage over Sony next-gen in the form of free online play, and they could also put the money they were spending on 4 Games with Gold each month towards adding more games to Gamepass each month instead, boosting the value of Gamepass which would in turn boost Gamepass subscriber counts.

Those free games are trash usually and probably cost microsoft a dollar. Microsoft knows console gamers will pay for online, but PC gamers won't because there is alternative services out there. The only reasons I can think of to make xbox live free is to get a leg up on the competition and because a lot of Microsoft's games are now GaaS. They might be able to generate more money by having customers buy DLC/Microtransactions from their games.

It would be amazing if Xbox One Series S / Lockhart launched with xbox game pass and had free online. All of this for the rumour price of $299. Even the hardcore playstation fans will give it a try for sure.
