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

Around the Network

Strong moves from Xbox are making waves amongst the most hardcore gamers, but mass majority of gamers will take years to grasp what Microsoft is building.

The first 18 months of PS5 vs XBS will be very strong in favor of PS5. Sony looks to be releasing Gran Turismo 7, Spider-Man Miles Morales + Spider-Man Remastered, Horizon Forbidden West, God of War: Ragnarok, Ratchet and Clank, Demon's Souls, Sackboy's Big Adventure, and Astro's Playroom all in the first 18 months, or less. This could be the strongest 1st year lineup for any console to date.

Microsoft have set themselves up to get stronger and stronger throughout the generation, but the 1st 18 months to 2 years it looks like they are leaning on Gamepass and Value to drive XBS adoption. Basically, no 1st party exclusives, but a huge library of games for $10 - $15 a month.

Looking forward to seeing how it plays out. Right now, it still looks like PlayStation is going to build momentum on momentum, while Xbox has the potantial to return to 360 levels and beyond. Could this be the generation that console finally hit the main stream?



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Those that think Xbox will be taking back marketshare or that PS5 is not going to dominate like PS4 are in for a rude awakening. MS are going to pay for going an entire generation without exclusives that come close to what Playstation has produced, in a generation where users are more tied to an ecosystem than they have ever been.

PS5 is going to dominate even more than PS4.
