Forums - Gaming Discussion - This Gen IŽll be migrating to XBOX and will be my platform of choise

Argentina people and their swallowed pride.
There realy isn't anyway to say Series X or PS5 is better engineered, they just chose differerent routes. On the price itself it is odd that PS4 games are 5x more expensive new than Xbox (compared to the dolar exchange ratio how much is on each platform? And considering third parties decides their prices are them also 5x difference between the platforms?)
But well, enjoy your purchase.

Fifa 21 PS 4 - about 8000 on local currency https://listado.mercadolibre.com.ar/fifa-21-ps4#D[A:fifa%2021%20ps4]

Fifa 21 X1 - about 9500 on local currency https://listado.mercadolibre.com.ar/fifa-21-xbox#D[A:Fifa%2021%20xbox]

TLOU 2 - about 6000 on local currency https://listado.mercadolibre.com.ar/the-last-of-us-2#D[A:the%20last%20of%20us%202]

Gears 5 - about 3000 on local currency https://listado.mercadolibre.com.ar/gears-5-xbox#D[A:gears%205%20xbox]

I fail to see this 5x difference when comparing apples to apples. Are you talking about real prices or ilegal purchases? Because there are people that "sell 30 days rental" for PS4 games for 10% the price of the game and purchase of the game for 1/2 or 1/3 with shared accounts.

That price diference is crazzy if true. Im not sure why only sony product would cost that much, makes no sense. In dominican republic we have a 60% import tax on games and consoles, then the stores mark up for profit so everything ends up at almost 2x the price, but thats all of them not just one brand.

For some reason the rest of your reasons dont seem believable. Specially after having such a massive price difference that anything else would not even need to factor. I would not even be able to think of anything else after seeing such a price disparity.

Yep, for sure if buying the retail games street price Xbox games new wer 12 USD versus PS 60 USD for sure almost every single person in USA would have an Xbox. Even if the most incredible games were in PS5 they would at most buy a PS5 to play that one game, and only the most hardcore would do it.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Cmon Don, if roles were reversed it wouldn’t even be a question. If you have stronger specs, in a casing 50% less in size, doesn’t require tools, and a user friendly memory slot, then it’s safe to say one is objectively better engineered.

Always nice seeing these threads. The power/value combo the brand has i feel is really gonna capitalize in South America

Is this the case in Brazil? What do you think the reason is for the price disparity? Genuinely curious

Thanks for letting us know but like my granpa always said, ". Brand console users are like farts, one gets out, another comes in later."

Seems like a good choice looking at gamepass and its value, you can always get a PS5 later.
