  • Should i say these to everyone? Xbox series x:Has a huge memory storage,start at 1 tb with reasonable performance and capacity,serve as the Spock. Xbox series s:Has same memory storage as a original xbox one despite having a better performance and abilities,serve as the McCoy. Ps5:Start of with a larger mass and size than a ps4 along with its digital edition and many catridges to make up for its moderate memory storage increase,serve as the Kirk.

  • If you want a PS5 eventually, you might as well get it earlier rather than later, especially if you have the launch PS4.

    Charlie MilroyCharlie MilroyPred 6 dnevi
  • Xbox Series X clearly isn't ready for launch this year. Without some games the launch of the Series X was chosen just to match the PS5. The Series X won't be worthy of being purchased until there are some next generation games available for it that are system sellers. The promise of the Series X is quite compelling, but the price of the console might even come down when it's worth buying.

  • You need HDMI 2.1 to get 4K 120, auto low latency, etc. If you’re buying a new tv make sure you get that. Most LG oleds have it. LG 2020 models can’t do 12bit color gamut only 10 bit. They still offer the other 2.1 features though. 2019 Lg oleds have full uncompressed 2.1 ports if you find them used.

  • Consoles aren't worth getting at launch. This should be a lesson with the 360 launching at a 54% failure rate and the shitty exclusives we've seen in the last 10 years

  • Yea I will wait for the Xbox Series X all digital. $100 cheaper and no need for wasted space when I haven’t used a disc drive since the 360 and only external hard drives and wifi to download and play games. My one X is doing quite fine in the meantime.

    Beez NeezBeez NeezPred 7 dnevi
  • Just wait a year. The cost will probably go down a $100 and they'll throw in a free game for free. And then the bugs of all be worked out.

  • I agree but it depends on what console you got. If you already have PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, I guess you could wait but if you have the original Xbox One or PS4 its definitely a bigger upgrade difference but at the end of the day, its your money.

  • I'm getting a ps5 all digital or Xbox Series X (more likely) on my birthday in February. I'm going to wait due to financial viability. I also have a Xbox one all digital and xbox game pass so most likely the Xbox Series X it's just a beast. And Xbox is an American company so that's a plus too. I cant wait to stop the long loading screens.

  • Ehhh the argument for "watch out for bugs" or "red ring" or anything else is silly IMO. It seems like the people dissuading people from getting one....are getting one... Bugs will be patched, hardware failures will be fixed as it's under warranty, and life will go on. Is it a pain? Sure. But it's not like your up the creek. If you want to wait, cool. If you don't, cool. I am getting the ps5 at launch: 1. I want to replay the W3 with the upgrade when available. Same with Cyberpunk. 2. There are games I want to play that should be out in 21', and I don't feel like struggling to get a system when the games I want finally launch. 3. FF16/Gt/Re:V.

  • Getting one (the only one i could get) at launch for early access. And the other, later down the line to grab some games i missed, but only as a secondary. I think its ridiculous people are hinging their next gen singular purchase based off a couple of exclusives that will make up less than 1% of their gaming.

  • Quicker loading times is such a boring thing to get excited about. By the time I've got my drink, been to the toilet and got comfortable, the games been ready for 6 minutes anyway. Also i want a black ps 5. If i have to have a huge wifi router looking console, I'd rather it didn't stick out like a massive white sore thumb. Plus in a year it'll be cheaper, with more games and any bugs cleaned up! It's really a wonder why anybody would buy on release.
