The Microsoft Xbox Series X has won the Best Games Console category at the Trusted Reviews Awards 2021.The console overcame key rivals including the Xbox Series S, PS5 and Oculus Quest 2 to secure the win.
Some would argue the PS5 should be the winner as it has new games specific to it but only one platform has an actual mini fridge likeness releasing later this year. It's like that scene in Batman Forever (yeah yeah... i know). PS5 being Two Face and Series X being Batman, [which makes Series S Robin] https://youtu.be/Zu4LHJN92c...
They made another article saying PS5 is the best. It’s like they don’t know what they like, could of just made one article saying both is good lol. Edit Nm I read that wrong. Seem like they like the Xbox more while its readers Liked PlayStation more
@ZetaBlob Not sure how you can think editor votes are less bias. Considering how many times editors have been caught getting paid or getting free swag or access for their reviews.
@DreadHealer Do you have a source for that statement about how the site gave Xbox a pity reward? If anything, the editors review seems more trustworthy than a public facing poll given you can't stop people voting multiple times etc... I primarily game on PS5 but I can see why some people prefer the Series X - Microsoft has done a lot to improve since the Xbox One debacle. @lodossrage Surely that getting paid / getting free swag thing would essentially apply to every product/company being reviewed?
@Orchard, yeah and it also applies to an opinion being paid to be more favorable. So again, back to my point, if anyone thinks editors can't/won't be bias, they're kidding themselves.
It's also like how an outlet chose ratchet and clank as the best game of the year, and then made an article a few hours later naming flight simulator as best Xbox game of the year. It's about inclusion to appease their fans.
Yep. The site chose MS so they could get clicks from both sides, after the readers elected Playstation as the best.
Has anybody else noted a slew of articles trying to paint Xbox in a positive light? Gaming journalism needs to be regulated much like regular news and the same ethical standards should be applied. Clearly certain gaming media outlets are being funded for fluff pieces such as these. The Series X is selling OK. Not great, not spectacular... Just OK. But certain websites and YouTubers are crying from the rooftops that Microsoft is dominating their competitors whilst the sales and more importantly the actual released games paints an entirely different picture. GOW, Horizon Zero Dawn and GT7 are around the corner what does Microsoft have? Halo Infinte a f2p? Cmon Xbox owners demand better so Sony can be kept on their toes.
The idea that the consumer has a less warranted view than than the website is a ridiculous. The consumer buys the product, the website pushes it for their on monetization
I play games, not mini fridges. I do appreciate how far the in-joke of the XS looking like a fridge has gone, but that’s not actually a product I would buy, nor does a novelty product have anything to do with the quality of the actual XS, which is the thing being compared to the competition.
Yeah cause that's what I look for in my gaming console choice, rather it has a matching mini fridge or not. smh
If sony had embraced the meme of the ps3 being like a foreman grill... hell yeah Id buy that too.
Smart Delivery, and Quick Resume are fantastic. Also 0 file transfers, my game progress is automatically transferred from one console to the next.
How do you fools disagree? Like “I’d rather not be able to resume playing quickly and I prefer it be hard to get my ps4 game up and running on my 5 where I left off” it’s like you enjoy pain
Sorry lukejd nobody cares about that feature it's about the games period. Microsoft and its dopey fanbase have talked about everything but the games for the last decade.
PS5 games already boot up very fast, quick resume is not important at all
Quick resume is just a pain at times for me as a multiplayer gamer. It can’t save where I am in a multiplayer server so some games end up crashing out or I have close out the game app and restart it to get into the servers. I guess it’s cool at times when I’m not online but that is rare so nothing I would make a huge deal about. And there are more gamers playing online then there are not so keep that in mind.
Sammarshall, games booting up fast and quick resume are not the same. If you use both, like I do, they are easy to discern. I can turn on my Series X and click a game and resume all in about 5 seconds, amd start exactly where I left off. No laoding a game then clicking continue. On the other hand, my PS5 doesn't can't do that. it does load games up faster on average. That doesn't take in account loading up saves after the main games laods up. Is it a deal breaker? No, not at all. I guess it can viewed as the controllers. The dual sense controller offers more immersion than the Xbox controller. Is it a deal breaker to not have dual sense features on the Xbox controller? No, bit it would be nice.
Stop being so insecure.
Smart delivery gives you discs with an installer and no game in disc . I’d rather not have it at all
Dude we all know any poll open to the public ps5 going to win their more playstation fans then xbox and nintendo combine just look at twitter or neogaf. Hell the peagus nation is deep and it sad.
Really? Nintendo seems to be holding its own! BTW, between Switch and Series X, I am having A BLAST!
@Dread... So ANYTHING is fine, as long as it's NOT an Xbox.. got it.
Lol you’re mad the more popular console has more fans? Who would have thought? Guess math isn’t your favorite subject.
But Xbox app is on PC too, alongside with Gamepass. So, hundreds of millions PCs. So much about the math, yo
I knew it look at the design of that thing its gorgeous no offense to the ps5 but it gets boring looking at it.....
A box is gorgeous ? It’s a Bluetooth speaker ? Anyone can draw a rectangle box ?
You do know to hook your systems up to a tv right? Just making sure you didn't get confused and transfixed by the modern art Sony has been putting forth.
Now you are astroturfing, who cares how a console looks like? Realy? When one console looks boring as hell iis the Xbox SeriesX. You guys are killing me.
It's hardly a design masterpiece. Its a fucking box. That being said I do not like the PS design either and I own a PS5.
What a [email protected]#& site. Here's a link claiming that PS5 is the best "Gaming platform" https://n4g.com/news/244862... But in the next article they are saying XB is the "best game console" Talking about batting for both aides 🤣
This comment section looks like someone electrocuted an owl.
In trusted reviews articles every console wins 😁😂
Ps5 totally flatten what xbox has to offer when it comes to games and innovations this article is biased.
Based on what? Ps5 is the better system and worldwide demand proves that
Demand doesn't prove it's a better system, just that it has more fans.
Exactly. The Dreamcast is considered a failure, but I rate it higher than any of the consoles of it's generation.
And why is it the PS5 has more fans?? Just let that sink in....
Look on the software side , hardware sales are subjective , some prefer modding their console for piracy, some love community services like playstation home , some just play online only with the ones they invited cause for many reasons and one of them is playing a fair matches without c ping to prevent lag wins "this issue doesn’t exist with xbox btw , Sfv is a solid prove cause xbox live will blow psn out of the water with better online service if they released it on xbox" , some just continuing chasing "and I'm one of them" PS1 PS2 ghost and they fail every time they buy newer ps console.
Riiight and gtaV is the goat and fornite, was game of the gen based off your logic (whispers: they're not) Series X was the better console deal with it.
I'm not sure about that. I like my PS5 but I will say Xbox's offering is quite competitive. And I'm outright jealous about the new Halo, the multiplayer looks brilliant. Personally though...Gran Turismo 7 alone will hopefully make PS5 the correct choice. And I'm hoping for some new IPs, because Horizon: New Dawn isn't really my thing.
I've played Halo Infinite's multiplayer and it's pretty darn good.
Lol this is a great laugh this article.
If i had bought xbox over playstation i wouldnt have many good games to play. Sony exlusives alone make xbox obsolete. Plus dual sense and the new vr. Xbox only go worse every gen. Microsoft paid 6 billion not to invest in new talent and new games but lock playstation users out of confirmed games which come anyway but now bethesda loose like 50% of their userbase. Bethesda has spiraling downwards anyway. This tells how desperate microsoft is. They have no means to create anything new for the industry.
Trusted Reviews have got n4g in a pickle with their playstation and xbox articles
Agreed, series X is awesome. Yo the fanboy bloodshed need to stop in here.
"It's the only thing people really highlight about ps5." Sure it is bud. You just keep telling yourself that. How are we supposed to "stop the bloodshed" when you keep opening the wound?
". Its like hyping up a remote over the actual TV lol" Well idiots hype up features instead of games on Xbox so yeah those dumb people do exist! There's a reason games sell better on Playstation and Nintendo!
I've never seen so much dedication from the Western ''journos''... They try so hard to make the brand more relevant than what it really is...The amount of free pass xbox gets is off the charts. Celebrating mediocrity is a staple of the media (especially here on the U.S.) when it has to do with xbox. Good thing most of the home console gamers around the planet know what the true reality is.
The ''harsh'' reality...... https://riseatseven.com/blo...
What a lot of people don't get is that the constant praise of Xbox is the baiting of the PlayStation fanbase and nothing more.
Lol. Yesterday TrustedReviews were gospel by some people. Today not so much. Console warriors are so predictable. Touch some grass people. Both consoles are good, no need to simp over plastic boxes or for corporations.
Well to be fair for dread, You said gospel yesterday and not so much today. What was yesterday? PS5 was the best, who was happy, PS fans. Who isn’t happy now in this comment section. PS fans. So your comment sounds like your talking about Ps fans without saying it and in fact I fully believe you were talking about that mostly when you made that comment. Just how I viewed your comment.
Uh oh lol.
Arguing about a thing you don't own , fascinating!
Quick resume for the win.
If only there were something worth resuming
Huh? You quick resume games. I have been quick resuming several games...Yakuza Like a Dragon, Control, The Medium, MLB The Show, No Man's Sky, GTA 5, Gears 5, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk, Sekiro, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Grounded, and many more. You guys should get tired of console warring.
Can someone explain to me the difference between a gaming platform and a gaming console...and btw the best gaming platform they said just so happened to be a gaming console.
So basically, based on the other article, BOTH the Series X and PS5 won the same, differently phrased, award? 🙄🙄🙄
It appears that way. Unless a gaming platform which is a console is different from another gaming console which is also a platform
Was the emulation ability of the Series X/S mentioned? Because that has been a godsend for me!
Some butts are burning right now lol
Xbox has the best first party lineup yet most of the games you named are on playstation lol
Lol. Trustedxbots.com made coming out.
I have both consoles and I can’t agree with this result. Gampepass is an excellent service. But it doesn’t make Xbox series X the best console. It is a luxury jukebox but fails to impress as a next gen console with bed exciting features and hasn’t shown any glimpse of a next gen game (until FH5 comes, and I’m so hyped for it). Whereas PS5 came with a new fantastic controller, with a totally fun and exciting free game (Astrobot), and some fantastic next gen games came out. Not a lot but better than absolutely none. Like Ratchet and clank wich was a blast, with stunning never seen before graphics and adaptive triggers thrills. So, in my eyes, ps5 is a truly first taste of what next gen can be out of the box. My Xbox series x is a luxury evolution of all my previous xboxs. As of 2020-2021, ps5 is a big win. As of a fantastic service Gamepass is a wonderful start.
For real, the Xbox Series X wouldn’t fit in my entertainment center. Mini fridge design is bad and I guarantee the Xbox Series Xs will return to the usual console design. But even if the Series S did fit in cabinets, do the controllers count as part of the console? DualSense is a game changer, literally.
The PS5 is much larger than the Series X. I have a 16ft console rack in my theater with large bays. I have two gaming rigs, PS4, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X, PS5, receiver, power conditioner, etc. The PS5 is one of the hardest things to fit,n ext two my 3080gaming rig.
