We compare the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 in terms of boot times, load times, and picture quality....but is it fair to mention the DualSense controller because that thing's rad!

since microsoft is allowing gamers to play in all devices then i thing in the near future people will buy pcs so that they can play pc games and xboxs as well so microsoft can lose its sale with xbox but at the same time they will earn buy selling there subbricsion buy increacing it and here sony will create monopoly in the console market because they will have all the games which are not available on pcs and xbox as a budget gamer ill choose ps5 and pc as a good deal fr gaming over xbox . At the end of the day games are more imp than the console itself the console only helps in making the games enjoyable by running it smoothly though pc are expensive u can settle in older components as long as the games run and work properly there no need spending money in rtx3090 as long as u need it

Can’t believe I’m saying this but the controller is the reason I want the ps5. I don’t care about the exclusives. I only play a few games. I will miss the elite controller though. PlayStation needs to make one

Why the Xbox is better: -Game Pass -Quick resume -Smaller/minimalistic -More Memory -More Power (3,8 Ghz, 4K 120fps) -Halo, Forza, Or, Fable -Longer Controller Battery -Dont Need New controllers

Patrick Rüegsegger Vor 2 Tage
I feel like the Xbox is a better choice, if you rather care about a playing *a lot* of games, since you get a lot of them "free" with GamePass, can use the Quick Resume feature and Backwards Compatibility. But if you're rather a person, that tries to focus on playing less games but good ones, I'd go with PS5, since a lot of their exclusives are masterpieces and the features of the controller add a lot to the experience.

Waste of money. I want a system I can tell difference WITHOUT HAVING TO HAVE two screens side to side...AND STILL you have to pause the game and use a microscope to find the upgrades
Buy both or buy neither. For me personally if i bought a PS5 it would because i couldn't get a hold of a PS4 or if i bought a XBOX SERIES X it would be because i couldn't get a hold on a XBOX ONE X. 90 percent of the games im playing right now is xbox 360 and 7 percent ps4 and 1 percent xbox original and 2 percent xbox one. NOTHING PS5 OR XBOX SERIES.

Patrick Rüegsegger Vor 2 Tage
@DY4Y Okay, I can agree with that, thanks for explaining it further.
DY4Y Vor 2 Tage
​@Patrick Rüegsegger well, as I said before "less "overpriced" and more "the people who made it don't get the profits so you shouldn't buy it" but the point is that neither Sony or Microsoft deserve any money " "Overpriced" was just an easy way for me to say "you shouldn't give these companies this much money" (also, technically my PC is ~$1000 - $1500 but since I'm not an idiot and bought all the parts used the price dropped down to only a slightly ridiculous amount or $400 (well, $418 to be exact but I rounded down). and in case you missed it *"steady 60 FPS at high graphics"*)
Patrick Rüegsegger
Patrick Rüegsegger Vor 2 Tage
@DY4Y So? just because your cheap PC manages to run AAA games somewhat, even tho I doubt it has good performance, that doesnt change the fact that you get 2000$ PC performance from a 500$ console. That's literally the opposite of "overpriced"
DY4Y Vor 2 Tage
​@Patrick Rüegsegger So? I have a $400 PC that runs most "AAA" games I've tried with a steady 60 FPS at high graphics. which is already about as much as anyone realistically needs. And if you *really* want the new toy you shouldn't buy it at launch, instead you should wait for the prices to drop down (probably around a year maybe less), or preferably even wait to find one used. That way you'll probably get a much better deal *and* you get the console when it actually has games on it (also possible issues like Nintendo's joycon drift will have time to surface which means you'll get a better idea of what you're actually buying)
Patrick Rüegsegger

A PS5????? DID I hear that right? A LITTLE PS4??????? And YOU think you are not even CLOSE being a "GAMER". GAMERS, RISE UP, YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS HAPPING HERE. People think they are gamers and playing on a CONSOLE? A CONSOLE!!! We, Real Gamers, We play on PC:s, CUSTOM BUILT! And YOU think you can come WITH US with your little CONSOLE, REAL GAMERS HAVE BUILT THEIR OWN PC. AND ALSO ONLY 300 HOURS??? We have ATLEAST 1000 HOURS on EACH GAME, AND WE have ATLEAST 200 games in JUST STEAM. THEN YOU GUYS COME AND CALL YOURSELF A "GAMER", YOU WILL NOT ONLY GET PUNISHED BUT YOU WILL ALSO NEVER BE A REAL GAMER! REMEMBER THAT!
