This guy did not make anyone’s choice easier 🤣
Microsoft finally figured out that the PC is basically their gaming console as well. There never should have been a divide.

"Just wait." " Best advice i've heard all year.
He Repeats saying its “ to early to

The price of the console doesn't matter, the price of the games do.

Microsoft buying bethesda might make a pretty big difference
"Just wait a little bit," the best advice that most will not take; but I will.
Demon souls/GoW. Thats enough for me to get the PS5/console.

Rosso Gingo:
After having a ps4 for manny years, I have to give Xbox another chance.
I recently got a ps4 and finally got to play GoW, Uncharted, and Last of Us. And I’ve gotta say, I didn’t miss out on much. Still plan on getting a PS5, but Xbox is my priority.
I fee like Sony and Microsoft are really good friends and it doesn’t matter the both making a lot of money 😂😂😂😂😂

I think I'm going for an xbox series S. 300$ is such a great price point, and I don't have a 4k TV, nor see one in my college paying future any time soon. And this is me switching from Team PC (and switch of course as I'm also not a monster). Xbox S lets me get a high end gaming device for the price of what I'd end up paying for a graphica card in a PC. So for me that makes the most sense.

He mentions that the ps5 will have a number of ps4 backwards compatibility titles yet fails to mention that the series x is compatible with every single xbox one game and a large chunk of 360 games as well.

Is VR going to be on ps5 and if so how will the change or improve feel like this would be big selling point
Anyone know if there is going to be a day one edition Xbox Series X special edition like how they did the Xbox one X Scorpio edition?

The reason why I asked this is because for 2 reasons.

1- Because there was that leaked Xbox conference and at the end I thought there was going to be a thing at the end where were going say a special edition anaconda/Lockhart like how they did the Conference one the Xbox one X then show up the Scorpio edition.

2- PS5 with some retailer just let people pre order there console early. I figured Microsoft was going to try and surprise us with this special editions. 🤷‍♂️
Simple for me. PS5 digital and Series S. Already preordered and secured both 👍

I'll get the xbox series x, then upgrade my pc if I'm looking for that extra emphasis. That game pass is a monster if you put things into perspective. Pc gamer's can really benefit from xbox over playstation. I'll maybe get a ps5 eventually just for the exclusives.
