“The Xbox Series X is an extremely powerful console, but the lack of next-gen titles has stalled its launch.”
Just wait 2-3 years then it'll have some rocket fuel in it
Then wait 2-3 years before buying, right?
If they want to use a car analogy then the Series X is like a sports car. You still drive it on the same roads but you get more wind in your hair (unless you are bald) and you look good driving it. Generally this is what 99% of those who buy a new car try to envision themselves doing. It isnt like suddenly there are new roads just for you. You are going to test your might on ones you know, ones you always wanted to just... burn rubber on. And of course try not to get caught.
uh....ok? You missed the part where the car has no gas.
Just give it up, darth. Please....
Lol 2-3 years the PS5 and next Nintendo console will be over 50 million unit's sold. Xbox fans always says just wait and years always pass by
Why does that seem to bother you all though? If they are content with the continue wait and see, why is it an issue? Xbox has games, you all just knock them. People prefer different things.
Wait for E3 lol.
Sit down Nobody is bothered ........ people are in banter mode and having a laugh. Y'all allowed this to happen and have yourselves to blame with the perpetual defence of weak output and deflections ms put out. Many of your kinsmen or xbox loyalists wasted far too much energy berating sony when that energy should of been directed at the brand that was clearly behind in the majority of metrics they used to brag about. MS will always have their loyal customers but those guys aren't their main focus.... they want the inbetweens, x-xbox guys, pc, ps and nintendo guys, basically new customers. Without those the GP ecosystem wont be sustainable. They are acting on that now by buying studios to bolster their GP plan. Time will tell if it works out for them
Of all the arguments you could've made and you picked sales. As a gamer, why does that matter to you?
Then we will have to wait for the wheels to arrive, but just wait until next E3.
E3 is dead especially with covid, I highly doubt we'll see another any time soon.
Just wait 2-3 year is the new wait till E3 haha
Been hearing just wait since xbox1 came out.. We're getting bored of waiting.
2-3 years! LMFAO. What a complete joke of a next gen console.
Too late by then and im pretty sure it will all be game pass fodder
just wait seems to be the xbox motto
Perhaps ... I would say. We cannot predict the future. I hope you are right though.
When it comes to lack of standout launch titles that can be said for both. Each will have new games that will be out for both Xbox One and PS4, that's not really saying much. The only true Next Gen launch title will be Ratchet and Clank. All and all going to be a slow start for each.
No matter how many times y'all try to make it seem like both launches are the same, they're not
I see a lot of xfans pretending like both console aren't worth it right now. It's a bit sad. I can't wait to get my Ps5.
Chalk and cheese. Its the most pointless next gen console ever made.
Demon’s Souls. Marginalization....activate!
Dude you are tripping. Demon souls can only be played on PlayStation. Then we have spider man, yes it can be played on ps4 but it’s a brand new game and made to take advantage of the ps5 much like halo was for the Xbox 1 SX. We have god fall exclusive to consoles. There is Astro bots exclusive. Bug snacks new game. We have Kena coming very soon! Exclusive to ps made to take advantage of the ps5. Death loop very soon. And not to mention countless other games that will hit the launch window. Ratchet, horizon, and gt. And than even more coming later in the year. Now please show me something even remotely close on Xbox? I’ll wait. And I am getting both console just because I always do but m$ really has nothing. Like nothing. Will see if my purchase is worth it later but we have to see.
What people don’t realize is that the souls games and From Software will be even bigger now because it is the PS5 showcase. New console launches are rare opportunities to get software in front of gamers who might not ordinarily try it. Some Claim it’s niche, but that popularity will be rising fast on ps5 launch!
Yea well, I stand by my statement many other launches had a great number of exclusives on launch. This one is kind of weak.
I have to disagree, Demon Souls is definitely a stand out launch title so is Miles Morales.
@ beastgamerkuma. Of course you’re going to stand by your statement, that is the definition of ignorance. Also the attitude of a spoiled little kid, you calm something that is false and incorrect have no facts to back it up, and when you are proven wrong you go. Ehhhh doesn’t matter I still think I am right. Grow up. Game on whatever you want but don’t be that dude! Demon souls alone might be the best launch exclusive title in a very long time.
Couldn’t have put it better!
Damn you took it personal sheesh. Its called an opinion. Didn't say I was right. And the fact that you believe i am on either side is true ignorance. I did refer to both consoles unlike many of you that are protecting Sony like a baby being pulled from their moms tit. Throwing out insults to stirr an argument like a blindless mob with pitch forks. Relax jeez. To me it doesn't feel that strong of a launch is all. But hey I forgive you, its all good.
Erm demon souls? Erm gran turismo which is out first half of next year it would seem. Also if you listen to Jim sterling's interview he very very heavily suggests that games like miles morales were originally ps5 exclusive however due to the level of engagement people had with ps4 and they knew they would have stock shortages for a while it was ported and downgraded to run on ps4. If that is the case that is quite a difference. Also by the time Halo launches we will have had spiderman, bugsnax, demon souls, sickbay, godfall, ratchet and clank, all stars, gran tourism, horizon forbidden west, god of war: Ragnarock ph and death loop. Feel like I may have missed a few indie titles.
Xbox as a brand is frustrating. I'm not hating on it. I'm just saying I was a big Xbox fan in the 360 days, they have been in freefall since like 2011. I didn't even get the Xbox One and switched to the PS4. The lack of games made it uncompetitive and uninteresting. They did so good back then but they have lost their way. I don't understand why they haven't fixed this exclusive situation and it's been almost a decade. It's a bummer. It really is. Maybe they will turn it around, but I'm so hesitant to go near the Series X cause the Xbox One was so bad. The exclusives literally NEVER came.
And when they came, they went right after to PC and therefore lost the exclusive stample.
To be fair, Xbox isn't a console anymore it is a platform. Microsoft goal is GamePass. Doesn't matter what you play on, as long as you are playing Xbox Games. That is where they are going. Netflix for Games, anywhere you want.
And does making the game exclusive makes it better to play for you? Like Will Spiderman be less fun now because Playstation 4 user can play the game? Did Horizon Zero Dawn become less fun because you can now play it on PC?
So if xbox isn't a console whats this new xbox? A fridge. Gamepass is a poor substitute for having no games worth talking about.
Let me play the devil advocate here. How's the Serie-X launch so different to the 360 launch or the PS4? Do you remember the great next gen games released on both system?
Well I didn't get the 360 at launch so I can't really say, I was like 15 lol. But the Xbone had nothing it's entire lifetime. PS4 there was atleast Killzone Shadow Fall. Amazing? No? But it was a decent launch title and it was at least something, you know? My main thing is, if the exclusives never showed up during the Xbone lifecycle, how do we know they actually will this time? I have both consoles preorderd and I'm literally stumped as to which one I will ultimately go with. GamePass and the fact the X is more powerful, plus the Bethesda thing has meaning leaning Xbox. But then there is the exclusive issue again. Will it just be Bethesda Games and more Halo and Gears again? The PS5 has a shit launch line up as well, but it has Spiderman and we know Ratchet and God of War and Horizon are on the way. We have no clue what any of these Xbox studios are doing.
Xbox 360 launched with PGR3, Kameo, perfect Dark and Dead or alive 4. SX launches with 0 exclusives.
"My main thing is, if the exclusives never showed up during the Xbone lifecycle, how do we know they actually will this time?" Short answer : wait until something please you to buy an Xbox :) If nothing is to your liking you won't be disappointed and will be happy if you buy it for some games you like. As for the other part of your comment Ill be honest that have bought none of the previous console at launch since the Dreamcast because I never found something that got me hooked on day 1 (still won't happened this time).
My main thing wih this guys argument is as somebody who had both. Xbox started off last gen with more exclusives. They launched with Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5 within a few months we had Sunset Overdrive. PS4 launched with Knack and Killzone Shadowfall within a few months we had Infamous Second Son. Then it took like year and half before got Bloodborne then the floodgates started opening on quality exclusives.
The only good Xbox exclusive was Sunset Overdrive which was criminally underated. Dead Rising is like a C tier franchise and Ryse was DOA. Forza, not my thing. But fair point.
@DeadmanMMX my reply was to Rich1631 regarding lack of exclusives day 1 Personally I think that both consoles offer nothing new at the moment that makes me go rush at the gate to buy a X or a Ps5. Now I'm sure that down the road both consoles will have great games that please MY needs.
Don't worry. They will have some new stuff next gen.
And next gen starts in 4 days baby!
By then, the AMD 6000 series will be lower their price lol
lol xD I will finally be able to afford one by then.
Yeah that’s why I’m not worried if I can’t find one anytime soon. I took the week off to try to find one. I’m giving my preorder to my brother for christmas since I’m getting a ps5 a couple days later. I’ll enjoy gears tactics and XIII on my slim. I will have one by the time fable and state of decay 3 come out, for sure.
Buy a PS5 instead. Problem solved.
And that is why I wait to buy a console when there's game on it instead of buying now and waiting to play :)
I won't be waiting to play on my Ps5.
Happy for you! I already played Demon Soul on Ps3 and it's a nice game (the soul games are not my cup of tea) as for the rest I will perhaps play Spiderman on my Ps4 pro. But more power to you :)
Thing is, there is one console maker that has shown that they deliver the goods. So I really don’t see a reason to wait, I would be waisting the bang for buck I could get from it since I know I will want to play their games. So day one for me.
Fair point I always finds all consoles attractive at some point and probably the why I always end up owning all of them but I always valued patience and it always paid well My Xbox 1 was cheaper with Halo MCC and Rare Replay bundled and My Ps4 was bundled with Uncharted trilogy. So at the moment with all the game I have yet to play (Currently playing Super Robot Wars X on Ps4 MAZIN GO!!!!!!) Game pass and Epicgames on PC I am pretty sure that will have no shortage of game to play till fall next year or 2022 when the real next gen game will come out.
Patience is always a good virtue. I would never argue with that. It’s a matter of personal preference at the end.
That like me, I wait 6 months later to get PS5. That's when the games will be cheap and giving me time to finish all my PS4. If I want to play 4k games I have a PC fully capable of it.
Kinda crazy they couldn't get games ready 4 launch, its not like xbox has been busy cranking out games this generation.
Man they pulled no punches. They flat out put the PlayStation is a better alternative. It really is odd that Microsoft showed up to the dance all dressed up on the wrong day. They really should have had some games that said you need this system day one. Instead they are hoping to sell it as a ultimate Xbox one X and praying that these news sites don’t call them on it. I’m actually shocked most haven’t called them on it actually. Maybe they fear not getting the next console early to preview if they are harsh.
The only thing that baffled me in the article is how they comment about how Gears 5 will play better and have single player DLC as something little yet praise Demon Soul on PS5 that is basically the same PS3 game with better graphics and 60 frames. What's the great benefit of Demon Souls for ppl who played it? Now I get it that that a lot of ppl never play Demon Soul but the same could be said about Gears 5? And saying that Gears just came out and Demon Souls was on PS3 does not change the fact you are still playing a PS3 game with PS5 graphics.
Well let’s see if I can put that in perspective. Shadow of the Colossus, if you’ve ever played it is a straight up classic. Mind blowing from the first battle all the way to the end. It came out on PS2 and for it to be REMADE 2 Generations later (13 years) later. Not only did it withstand the test of time, it’s still breathtaking. It was breathtaking then because it pushed the envelope of what was capable back then. It had to be remade, not just updated/remastered so that you still get that breathtaking feeling from back then, because the source is the same but everything else is even better than you remember. Apply that same logic to Demon Souls Remake. 11 years ago it was my most beaten game and is still one of my most beaten games. I will be there day one. Why? Seeing the game actually feels like seeing it for the first time ever. 11 years is a long time and it’s even better than you remember. Gears 5 came out 13 months ago. It’s not a classic. It’s not remade. It’s simply optimized to look and run better, which may vary from eye to eye. It’s a Xbox one game being played on a new system that runs better. It’s not even old enough to be missed. Hell it’s still being played currently lol. There’s no comparison.
Why is it hard to understand that a remake is a brand new game? Even light years away from a current gen game that got patched for optimizations.
Because Gears 5 isn't even in the same zip code as Demon's Souls. So theres no benefit to remaking one of the best games ever made but Gears, a last gen bc title is of benefit somehow? Just face it, the new xbone launch line up is garbage.
If you don't understand why Demon's Souls Remake is such a big deal, then XSX is perfect for you.
Now in regards to Gears5 just remember that one of the best selling games on the Ps4 and one that came early in the life of the console was ..... The Last of Us Remastered a game that was praised on all website for putting 60 frames per seconds at 1080P for the mere cost of 40$ because it used the POWA of the PS4 (according to ND) So what changed from the great remaster era to now aside from being free? As for Demon Soul, it's still a new experience with a new paint Now I'm sure I will enjoy it at some point but would you rather play Bloodborne 2 instead of this? And just to be clear I'm not knocking on the Ps5 launch line up I think it's pretty decent and full of great games just find it funny that Demon Soul is the flag bearer or Next gen experience
Actually I think that’s exactly what you’re doing. Hating on the PS5 and possibly PS period. You really are reaching to the point of being illogical. Maybe it’s a language barrier or something that you’re struggling with. I’m not being flippant, I honestly hope it’s what it is. Last of us REMASTERED at a discounted price a little over a year later from the original release. Tweaks on animation, gameplay, graphical updates, and spring cleaning. It sold great because last of us was setting the world on fire and they struck while the iron was hot. Gears 5 is NOT a remaster. It is a backwards compatible game that was OPTIMIZED. Hey, here’s some code so you can run as efficiently as possible. Godspeed. These are totally different things but you are trying (and completely failing) to make it apples to apples. Then to your “wouldn’t you want to play Bloodborne 2 instead of this?” Referring to Demon Souls.... Bluepoint made this remake. What on earth does that have to do with Bloodbornes sequel that is made by Sony Japan and From software? They are mutually exclusive. Ones development has no bearing on the other... so that whole thought process is ridiculous and shows your struggle. In closing it’s clear that you simply hate the attention the PS5 is getting for actually having a launch line up of exclusives that are actually making headlines and trying to make Gears 5..... relevant. Comparing it to Demon Souls is honestly laughable. Desperation has never been so visible and I think you reallly need to abandon feelings on this one and use your head. No offense.
What do you mean no gaas?
