Hoo mama. That's some bone broth you're serving up for Xbox.

-I didn't even see the other low predictions for XBSX. Wow you guys.

It's simple math. What do we currently have ?

- Series X, the most powerful console with Game Pass, sold at 499$

- Series S, the least powerful console with Game Pass, disc-less, sold at 299$

In the other hand:

-PS5, slighlty less powerful than the Series S, sold at 499$ and at 399$

It's the Xbox One vs PS4 all over again. The One S spent its almost entire lifespan being way cheaper than the PS4 in order to sell something, while the greater power of the One X didn't help that much to drive sales. There is absolutely no difference.

Being the cheapest or the most powerful console doesn't drive sales. Console gaming is, for the past 25 years, to look what Sony has to offer, and then see other companies.

You sure the Series S, not X....is more powerful than PS5? I thought it had lower specs than the X. The PS5 is slightly less powerful than the X, not S.

And not a chance next-gen is going to be 5 years. There has NEVER been a 5 year PS generation, the last two were 7 years each. If anything, I expect this generation to be longer than the last one. And if enhanced consoles are going to be a ting, I expect them to show up around 2024 and the PS6/XSX2 show p in 2028.



I hope they do better than this thread especially X-series but it's too early. I will be able to tell you after January



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Sorry, you're right, it was a typo
