Poll: What would it take for you to choose Xbox over Playstation next gen? (86 votes)

Not much, I can go either way 24%
Xbox would have to do a lot 26%
I'm going with Xbox no matter what 20%
I'll never go Xbox 21%
I'm a die-hard Playstation fan 9%

Right now I think it's pretty safe to say that Playstation is the heavy weight champ at the moment. They are the clear favorite for next gen based on library and backwards compatibility. But Xbox has a chance to redeem itself.. at least that's what you would think. What would it take for you to choose Xbox over Playstation next gen, SW? Is it an easy decision or would Xbox have to do a lot to sway you over? For me, I just don't see Xbox winning me over. Playstation has always had a diverse library that I enjoy more over Xbox.

@hrt_rulz01:

So what your saying is that you would get a PS5 to play PS4 games by BC when you don't play them now?

Just get a damn ps4 man..lol

Yes maybe... or I could just wait for PS5 and play the PS4 games then.

Anyway, I'm not sure what I'll do "next gen" yet.

At this point there is very little that would persuade me to buy an Xbox.

Massive stupidity.

MS isn't even a gaming company so why would anyone buy a game console from them unless you don't care about games?

MS died as a real gaming company after the original xbox.

MS has shown that aren't interested in getting my money with the crap they've pulled this gen. HaloGearForza repetition to infinity and mediocre games like Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3 have shown me that they are a joke and don't take gaming seriously. The fact that their games are on PC further makes the next Xbox even more out of the question for me.

So honestly to answer your question OP, not a chance in hell that they can convince me to buy the next Xbox.

Well I mean I wasn't going to choose Playstation or Xbox next gen anyway, might get more into the PC side of stuff though.

Xbox is trash at this point. Nothing MS could do would make me buy an Xbox.

Last Xbox I owned was a 360 and I barely played it. MS are a joke.

I too owned a 360. Though I played it all the time. Incredible line up. This generation not so much. But this generation blows in general.

I'm picking Xbox next gen, or Stadia, because Sony has gone full sjw and Western.

That's what they need to embrace. Free online would meld well with their Gamepass direction.

@Pedro: it defeats the purpose of me buying the console. Seriously what reason could I have to buy a next gen Xbox when I've got a PC?

If you own a Windows PC you already own an Xbox.

That's the point. If you also had an Xbox you would have access to much of your digital Library thru both your PC and your Xbox so the two systems would complement each other.

Xbox gamepass live combined suscription. New games from ninja theory and the initiative at launch but all that isn't going to happen. If the price was competitive then it would be appealing.

It’s so funny to think that PS4 pro is my first PlayStation ever and that I was once a huge lemming ( owner og Xbox and 360) until MS pushed me to buy a PlayStation this gen.

Thank to MS I was able to experience what Sony has to offer and I’m sad to say this, but I’ll never be going to back to MS and I’ll be able to experience their games on my pc :)

You still a MS fanboy. Look at how much time you spend talking about Xbox. You are Xbox fanny struggling with identity crisis. LMAO.

Yeah but that seems like a waste of money just to complement each other, when I could be spending the money on more games.

MS would go bankrupt and that's their lunch money too.

Buying one console over another is never my reality. If i want more than one I'll buy more than one. That being said, I'll buy the next xbox console if they have actual exlusives that I care about. If I can get their "exclusives" on PC I'll do that instead.

I own both currently. I will buy a PS5 eventually no matter what because of their studios and games. If all of the new studios Microsoft has recently acquired produce quality games in the next 5 years I’ll pick up the next Xbox as well.

We'll see. I'm not liking the way Sony has been behaving recently, but I like japanese games and PS still gets a lot more of those than Xbox. Either way if they both have big 'console' exclusives I really want I'd get both. If Xbox had more than than Forza and Rare Replay for me this gen I'd have one(Ori and Cuphead can play on my subpar PC, and now Switch in Cuphead's case).
