You know Series X means getting the best 3rd party games too right? You know...95% of a consoles library? Nm being the only place for 1st party and Game Pass if you aren’t a Pc gamer. 

PC gamers act like everyone else owns a gaming rig and is near universally adopted by everyone (shrugs) 

Nope, MS is acting like gaming PCs are universally adopted. Why you think Gamepass on PC is starting to become better than Gamepass for console? They are focusing more on the kind of games that PC gamers are typically into than consoles gamers, like RTS games, GAAS games and Flightsim. 

We'll see about getting the best versions of 3rd party games. The thing is that the Series X and ps5 both have their strengths and weaknesses and it will be up to developers to choose which console they'll prioritize. Typically that means the one which has the biggest install base. I mean, if you're a developer would you be banking on MS's console when you hear Phil saying "It doesn't matter how many we'll sell" or Sony's console who are so confident in their product that they've doubled up on production? 

I wouldn’t say universally, just they recognize much of the PC gaming community doesn’t have a Xbox. So they bring the games to them. Looking at you as a prime example of turning haters into Xbox ecosystem members ;)

Games like Age of Empires and Flight SIM have a rich history on PC so it shows they taking the ecosystem seriously, appealing to both. Also I hear CrossfireX coming to Xbox console before Pc so there ya go, appealing to market demos. 

Ya thing is outside of theoretical seconds faster load times, most of PS5s strengths only apply to exclusive first party games. Otherwise it comes down to Xbox’s raw strength in specs. Sure there will be cases where Sony will buy their way into console parity for multiplats, and as shady as that will be they can’t afford to do that for EVERY title. 



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