Forums - Gaming Discussion - Can't make up my mind about whether to get a Series X and here's why

as an owner of both I say go for it. I think both consoles compliment each other well

Well he can't play Crash 4, Tony Hawk remake, Cyberpunk, Immortal Phenyx, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Little Nightmares 2 nor Hitman 3 through it, can he ?

Cause when I think "newer games", that's what come into my mind.

Every game MS publishes will day one, as well as games MS is able to cut a deal with (like The Medium).  Hence why I said "coming up".

On your list I bought Cyberpunk and Valhalla on XSX, and Fenix Rising on Switch.  In no way did that stop me from playing over 200 bucks worth of games for just 30 out of my pocket.  You can still buy new games while taking advantage of gamepass.

You are trying so hard to downplay the service (and failing), and I cannot see why.  It is an amazing value and as more games come day 1 overtime, it will only get better.

If it is not for you, that is fine.  Nothing is for everyone.  But don't act like it is objectively bad, especially when the OP asking for advice on a Series X would benefit greatly from it in particular (based on his post history).

There are alternatives, you simply pester CGI to make you a comp from his old parts, if that fails you make a thread asking for VGChartz
members to post what parts they no longer use and are willing to give away, then with that done you get CGI or Pem to pick out the best match ups.

If that fails I have another plan, you sneak down to Melbourne. while I'll steal a yacht and sail across Bass Strait, and pick you up in Port Melbourne if anyone asks tell them you are waiting for the Ferry to Tasmania but it's broken down and they have sent a yacht, then we depart for South Australia to track down Pemalites house should be easy we just ask around the local fire stations, should take us no more than twenty minutes, how many stations could they have ? once found you break into his house while I keep watch and bingo one great gaming PC easypeasy. now I know you are going to complain about this being far from a simple computer pickup, but the alternatives tracking down CGI in the US and he might shoot us.

PS. PM me if you have any queries, we can't alert the Pem last time I incurred his wrath he cursed me, and to this day I no longer have matching socks.

LMAO no dude, gamepass games are not lame.  You must not have been keeping in the loop.  In a two month period, I played over 200 bucks worth of games.  This includes Gears 5 (and Hivebuster DLC), Jedi Fallen Order, Battlefield V, Sea of Thieves, and The Medium.  And there are a number of other games I want to play that I have not gotten to yet.

Seriously saying gamepass games are lame is on the same level of denial people who claims Switch only gets lame games from 3rd parties or Sony only makes interactive movies disguised as games.  But much like they have their opinions, you can have yours (even if it does not line up with the vast majority).

Well I can list you all of the games of Game Pass and tell exactly why it doesn't interest me

That's just you though and not every member of the gaming world. Personal taste and all that.

To the Op. Just wait it out. Things will improve by years end.

Life is short, I wouldn't hold out on great experiences hoping for 5 year late ports. If you can afford a next gen console I would get one. Enjoy the exclusives and ton 3rd party titles available on sale down the road. Also unless you prefer playing everything portable, I would imagine most of these games would play a lot better on Xbox. Once you got an additional console I think you'll also open yourself to more gaming experiences that you otherwise wouldn't of given a chance. Especially if you're in Doom, Witcher, Hellblade etc I think you'll find yourself discovering a lot more games then you've listed

Switch successor is likely around 3-4 years away, and with Nintendo opting for lower specs it's bound to be less powerful than the twins. Especially if they are keeping the hybrid model that's been so successful for them. The next switch might be equivalent to a base PS4 and I'm not sure if that will have the power to run something like Hellblade 2. Then again nobody at the launch of Switch would consider it running things like Doom 2016 or the witcher.

I don't understand, you're like the 5th person who tell me this.

Like, I thought that the "I" and "me" part was explicit enough to demonstrate it's my opinion

For the record, this is the same guy who not too long ago said that he'll never buy another Nintendo console. Now he's on the brink of never buying a non-Nintendo console again.

 Wouldn't removing the never from the last part of the sentence make more sense? forget about it I reread it.

What a low blow throwing that into the  face of a man who is stuck with the options of wearing odd socks and looking like an idiot, (especially playing sports like aussie rules) or alternatively wearing no socks and looking like some kind of metro hipster, btw cross my heart and hope someone else dies, I knew those figures but 20 minutes still stands I'm real lucky. also we only need to look at areas with good  internet.
