I´ll be changing my gaming console first choise this gen for 3 reasons as soon as I can get it. For Now I have several games to play on PS4 pro.
I´ve been playing on my PC after ATARI Days until PS4. I still have my GTX 1070 GamingX, but I love to play on my bedroom. The PS4 pro has been great, with awesome exclusives from Santa Monica, Naughty Dog and many more and supported most 3rd party games.
Playstation is awesome, and Microsoft lacked good AAA first party games besides Gears, Forza and Halo.
Now the XBOX series X has better graphics specs, It seems to be between a RTX 2080 and a 2080 Super, and that is very good if you want to play games at 4k 60. Of course the graphics will have to be turn down here and there to achieve that fps and probably will be 30 fps in the future.
On the other side, The PS5 has a faster SSD, but only first party titles will really take advantage of it. And besides that, the XBOX SSD is more than 20 times as fast as XBOX ONE HDD. And the PS5 GPU is between a RTX 2060 super and a 2070. That´s like 20-30% less performance.
The Series X box is smaller, and much better engineered, The aesthetics are better for my room. And for its size its a beast.
1 -So the 1st reason is better overall hardware. And I love great hardware.
2- The second reason is the purchase of Bethesda. With the Bethesda Adquisition, microsoft will have several great AAA games that I play and I doubt that those games, specially the most demanded ones are going to Sony.
3 - and last Price. I really can´t understand why, but in my country (Argentina) games are usually 3 to 5 times more expensive on Sony Store. And the country is sinking, an average Salary is about 4 sony new games.
It´s cheaper to get the XBOX Series X and The games, plus the PS5 afterwards to play the exclusives than get the PS5 and all the games in that platform.
I can be considering changing my pc too , but getting a new motherboard, cpu, ram and graphic card will double the price of getting the XBOX Series X and also I don´t have my desktop in my room.
So there you go. I´ve been a PC gamer, a PS Gamer and will be an XBOX Gamer.Last edited by CrazyGPU - on 16 October 2020
