If MS closes its gaming division it would not create a dilemma for me or any developer. I am not sure why you draw that bizarre conclusion. The things you all say on this forum is so out there sometimes.

EDIT: Its funny reading the biggest Sony fannies; including alts, claiming I work for MS. 😂🤣

If it's any consolation, I don't think you're employable at all. 🤣

It really isn't necessary either. He might not be a lem, but he definitely has a bias being an Xbox developer. If MS closed their gaming division, it would create a dilemma for him and that's totally understandable. I mean, I'm a .net developer and I've very comfortable using MS' development tools. If they stopped supporting .net for whatever reason, then I would have to start looking into learning something else to keep being a software engineer.

He's an Xbox dev? That's news to me. Nothing he says sounds particularly knowledgeable on the subject. I'm sure he's a Microsoft employee though. An Astroturfer to be exact.

And the ps5 is the weaker of the two with heating issues, poor engineering, and my god - as soddered in sd with no available expansion. Also sounds like a jet engine with crappy controller battery life.

And the games? A pack in demo and a remaster are it’s strong points.

Sony really screwed this gen up.

Yeah, that sounds really genuine from the guy who's still in denial about the election. 🤣🤣🤣

IGN not including Animal Crossing: New Horizons as best game of the year just proves how out of touch IGN really is.

That's probably everybody's choice for "other". Still, a weird omission though.

@BenjaminBanklin: Unlike you, I don't believe its my job to sell consoles. Stop being a tool man.

You've made it your life's mission to play defense force for one. You can stop with the fake neutrality.

A remaster of a PS3 game (don't get me wrong I love Demon's Souls), and Miles Morales- which can be played on PS4- isn't exactly something to brag about... be honest.

It's not a remaster, it's a remake. And yes, Miles Morales can be played on the PS4, but it's also a new game, which is something that MS doesn't have right now. Even the third party exclusives bailed until next year. I mean, Xbox games can all be played on PC, do they stop being impressive since they're worse on Xbox consoles? Keep that same energy.

You are trying to communicate to one of the most diehard Sony fanboys. Even though he spends most of his time on the Xbox. 😂

And you're the worst lem. Can you even sell anyone here on an Series console right now? The only "Xbox" game that I even mess with right now is Flight Simulator... and that's not even on Xbox consoles. Says a lot about the state of Xbox at the moment.

@BenjaminBanklin: These consoles were obviously an investment for future games. Right now the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X are not really worth having. Neither console is much of a step up or has enough exclusive games for it to be the case. Anyone who done 3 minutes of research into these consoles would know this.

I bought a PS5 and there's stuff to play on it now AND will be in the immediate future. Speak for yourself. Xbox is putting up a complete goose egg in comparison.

@Pedro said:

@Zero_epyon: Why were the PS5 comparison opted out of your OP?

The author doesn't own a PS5, so that point is completely irrelevant.

I notice there's a small few of these Xbox buyers remorse articles going up. I mean, what did they expect going in? They knew Halo was delayed and the other games are way off. You can't crow about Game Pass unless there's new AAA first party games coming to it, the controller isn't much of a leap, the console isn't outperforming its rival and the b/c magic wears off quickly. It's threatening to be a Netflix machine until MS can get it together.

Like I said before, it's hard to hype a console without a solid advantage over its more successful competitor. Here's another article...

Series X has the best lawnmowing technology so it's an automatic win

Updates, its the UK and Europe biggest launch ever as well as per from our friends at resetera which I somehow too lazy to link.

https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/sources-ps5-was-the-uks-biggest-ever-console-launch/

According to publishing sources speaking to VGC, launch sales for Sony’s console far exceeded the UK’s previous record holder, 2013’s PlayStation 4, which sold some 250,000 units in its first 48 hours.

Hooooly crap. I feel ultra lucky to have gotten one for the holiday.
