The only reason to buy a video game console is because of the video games it has and Microsoft has simply dropped the ball. They have no new first party games coming at launch or in the launch window. They are hyping up performance boosts for old games like Gears 5 and Forza because they have nothing else on the way.

It is mind boggling how after having 6 years to prepare for this moment they actually have a worse lineup than the Xbone had.

No, there is not.

Then again is even worst to want to buy a PS5 at launch, with XSX at least you have GamePass.

With 30% less power and only a difference of $100, there is no reason to buy a ps5...ever. Unless you really need to play qte movies or anime crap games.

Sony doesn't even have anime games any more, they've scared the Japanese devs all away with their needless censoring.

People can have whatever reason they want to purchase an Xbox Series X at launch and those reasons are as valid as anyone elseโ€™s. There will be numerous people who will get one and many have already done so with preorders.

I think the Xbox may start to become more attractive to Japanese devs if Sony keeps up the censorship. The Xbox Series S/X preorders are selling out in Japan (although the numbers are still likely low) and Phil Spencer did say that Japanese adoption of the console is growing quickly.

It would be hilarious that after all these years the Xbox platform champions Japanese games more than PlayStation.

Well, pack it up Xbox fans, you heard the man. Apparently you arenโ€™t allowed to like any game on your platform. I donโ€™t make the rules, looks like Nathan does though.

I agree. I'm still getting one (later) but you would think after MS threw in the towel exclusive wise for the Xbox One the last couple of years, they would have one or two games ready for launch.

This would be a different conversation if Halo was a launch title. Too bad 343 is wetting the bed...

There is a point to be made here.

The Xbox One consoles failed in part because of its software lineup. The Series S/X is launching with no unique games and Xbox has no major titles launching on ANY platform for the foreseeable future. Just a subscription service with all the older games that didnโ€™t push hardware as well as competition.

I honestly donโ€™t understand why the consoles are launching now. A 2021 launch would greatly benefit the consoles all around. There are hardware spec tweaks that could be done, and maybe a few games could be done by then as well.

I know the OP trolls Xbox but I agree. I'm waiting until next year to get an Xbox Series X when more games for it come.

You can have a million reasons not to buy one, and only need one reason to do so. I'd imagine one of the biggest reasons people will choose to buy one at launch, is because they want one.

@NathanDrakeSwag: You said the same shit last week in a near identical thread you created. That one didnโ€™t turn out well for you. So you thought youโ€™d wait a week. Interesting.

Plenty of reasons to buy a XSX. Main reason being, itโ€™s superior to the โ€œcompetitionโ€ PS5.

Hyped up free performance boost including Ray tracing vs have to pay for remake.

No reason for anyone to buy any next gen console unless u plan on playing current gen games at better performance.

There's plenty of reasons. It's good value for money and it'll play all future xbox and multiplat games better than any other console will.

Xbox ain't gonna be shit for another three years. What's the use of waiting up until then? They're gonna keep trying to shanghai devs and publishers who have close to finished content to try to make up for it. Most... expensive... dev cycle... ever.

If you are a non xbox user its a pretty nice machine with gamepass. For xbox users its better to wait as Phil (unless he backtracks as usual, that guy I tell ya) said there will be cross platform support for few years.

Game Pass is MS saving grace ya'know.

But however, for a PC gamer like myself, owning any Xbox consoles is just pointless now when they port there games on PC and as such, it just isn't worth my time but at the sometime, if you aren't into PC gaming than of course XSX is worth the money just don't get XSS of course.

Moving forward, it's obvious MS is just focusing getting more gamers into Game Pass service and they know the software money is were it's at.

Because Sony backtracked. Phil always said there will be crossplatform support.

If we're being honest, if you've bought the X1X or the Pro, there's no reason to upgrade to next gen as of yet. I think every game is playable on current gen as well. Seems odd for a gen switch. Is Demon Souls still only on PS5?

Luckily for me, I skipped the Pro. Still using my launch PS4. Time for the upgrade.

Demon's Souls is a PS5 exclusive!! Some are claiming that it will come to PC, but Sony has said it is a PS5 exclusive.

@tormentos: There's nothing at launch worth $70 for me, and it looks like the exclusives are going to be more remakes, sequels and remasters of more 3rd person adventures. The only game that looks vaguely interesting is the cat game.....and having those exclusives just wouldn't make up not having gamepass, especially in light of the Bethesda purchase.

Games that where classes as exclusive to PS4 appeared on PC, Sony lied about the exclusivity

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-08-30-sony-says-expect-more-of-its-first-party-playstation-games-on-pc

More games coming to PC.

In affect we cant trust what Sony says about exclusivity.

Whats the difference between games on PS4 and PS5 and Xbox series X and PC?

NOTHING is the answer you are looking for

Been sitting on the ultimate game pass for a few months now and only taking advantage of the PC. Ill scoop a launch Series X just to take advantage of the console side.

PS5 Ill wait to see what the exclusive lineup looks like by the time the revision comes out, then Ill decide if I am missing out on enough to buy one. Demons Souls looks great but it is not enough to buy the console for just a remaster of a game Ive already played and pretty much memorized a lot of the enemy layout.

In what part there say MOST IF NOT ALL EXCLUSIVE PS5 GAMES WILL LAND ON PC.

Oh did i forget that doesnt even warranty a day 1 release on PC either, if anything you will have to wait YEARS like Horizon or bloodborn, unlike xbox games that are on PC day 1 and in some cases like gears tactic and MS flight simulator after PC had them.
