Alright,Tim Sweeney and Gabe need to fight this out.

Pretty sure that Gabe would eat twig-boy Tim Sweeney for breakfast:

Though Gabe does look like he has lost weight, he still looks like he probably has at least 30 pounds over Tim. Tim might have a small reach advantage since he is 3 inches taller than Gabe, but I still think Gabe would eat him for breakfast, it always looked like Gabe had a decent amount of muscle hidden under his fat.

Don't see how Gabe's preference have any effect on the industry... His only influence is Steam and a new game Valve releases every 10 years, which will be multiplat any away. 

And you even hinted at it, his preference may be because of Epic going fullblown competing with Steam. And now Sony has invested in Epic.

I mean, I am considering an XBSX just because I really like Halo (and i have to say, its about the story, because what theyve shown in graphics, looks like XB360), but in general PS5 is for me the most appealing console no matter what epic games guy or gabe newell said. PlayStation ecosystem is what i like, nothing to do with those 2 clowns.

Don't get too carried away with it. I am just posting about what he said, weather it makes a difference or not doesn't matter. People will buy what they want regardless, however you cannot deny that it is a positive when the king of PC gaming says something positive about another product. I bet you would be flipping if he said the PS5 was better just like many were listening to Timmy boy continued his praising of the PS5. 

At the end of the day, its Gabe, a well known gaming legend.

Look no Xbox fans are claiming some massive PR victory. It is what it is: A major figure in gaming who is respected by almost everyone who’s sole “flaw” is not making the 3rd entries in fan favourite games. As far as we know when he speaks people listen. He has no one to answer to but himself.

So really, you could take this 2 ways: ignore or acknowledge the next gen won’t be so one sided as this one is.



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

Which is great! I'd much rather somebody answer like that and just say what they then than spout off some vague bullshit to try and avoid giving an answer. Most people do have a preference one way or the other and there's nothing wrong with them just saying which they prefer (especially when asked!) without going into a full length discussion over the pros/cons of each.

Well if you are satisfied with those answers, then great. Kudos to you for accepting peoples opinions that easily. If someone tells me "I think China is a better country than the US" I would like to know why. If they then say "Because it is". I cant really just accept that. I want to know why. Just a curious guy I guess... 

Not saying I wouldn't like more. More that I'd much rather a simple A or B response to a question like this than some vague PR-like bullshit.

Fair enough. Those kinda answers are annoying too.



Seems the only thing Gabe does nowadays is to favor things. He did it with the Wii U too.



I am a Nintendo fanatic.

Hmmm but Tim seems to be the speedy boy of the two so if he can get some punches in before getting crushed by Gabe his weight then he might survive the fight!

A Marvel movie would be ideal,something original for a change. :p
