Gabe probably just sold plenty of Xboxs with his simple statement of which is better out of the PS5 and Xbox with a straight answer of "The Xbox."

The host from the show asked him "why?" and he responded "Because it is. I don’t have a stake in that race," he added. "Obviously, we do most of our development on personal computers, but of the two I would definitely go with an Xbox."

Unfortunately Gabe didn't go into detail as to why the Xbox is better, could this be due to Sony's partnership with Epic? Or Tim Sweeney praising of PS5 of recent times, no body knows, however Gabe has a lot of weight to his opinion compared to the majority and i am simply interested in knowing why he thinks so.. is it because the Xbox is better overall or because of his rivalry with Epic Games, where he will bank the other bus.

That's a low blow dude.

Could have given a reason, but it's his opinion, so yeah, it's fine.



Much needed positive PR for the Xbox brand lol.

Fanboys don't give (Actual) reasons to own a console. That's why they are fanboys. They speak on knowledge they no nothing about aside from trying to convince others based off brand loyalty. Gabe is a neutral customer to both brands and probably could care less out of either of them however this question is more to do with if he had to choose..

His sole focus is PC gaming.

Well Gabe gives no reason at all. Hes obviously not neutral. He hated the PS3 as well at first. Im sure he will come out at a PS5 event looking like a hostage again after a few years when he need Sony to sell his products though. 

He hated it, yet Steam had some sort of PSN integration back then and not XBL.

HOW DAREs HE!



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


At this point every "XBox exclusive" also ends up on PC. I can understand why he likes XBox better.



Maybe he just legitimately likes it better. Crazy I know. But he may just not have wanted to get too far in the middle of things, and didn't want to elaborate because the gaming community tends to be childish about things like this.. And, the host of the segment moved on pretty quickly.



Well, it could be one of two things:

Either he really thinks that way and didn't feel like giving a reason because he feels that it is too obvious (which is something I would personally agree with).

Or there's something else cooking behind the scenes, just like there was something else cooking behind the scenes with Sony and Epic. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if next month is announced that the Valve VR headset will be compatible with XSX.



Serious guess: He’s a PC guy through and through. Series X simply has more all around potential and capabilities in regards to specs.

Joke Reason: Like Sony writing Epic a fat cheque, Valve got a nice sum of money from all those juicy sales of Sea of Thieves, MCC and now Grounded on Steam Lol



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.
