    Series X. Will be upgrading TVs shortly and with the PlayStation exclusives being on PS4 for a while I don’t need the PS5 upgrade anytime soon.

    Series X no doubt. Can't wait to play Valhalla on it and murder as many Englishmen as I can.

    Eventually Series X, but probably not for at least a year since there’ll be a longer wait for Xbox next gen exclusives.

    Based on the PS5 debacle, I wouldn’t count on using Amazon. Scalpers abused their system as best I can tell.

    My advice is to sign in to a few sites and add your CC info ahead of time. Seems like places like Target and Best Buy added layers to avoid scalpers as best as possible.

    I was able to get my PS5 through Amazon. Only retailer website that ran relatively smoothly for me. :idk:

    Just be ready on multiple outlets at 10:59AM ET on Tuesday. Not much else you can do. Like I said yesterday though, I don't think either of these consoles are going to end up being hard to get your hands on come launch day.

    Gotta give credit to Microsoft for at least attempting to reduce the barrier of entry and Trojan horse their way into houses via all access and the Series S. Fully into getting people into the eco system as soon as easily as they can. Just wait until the y start pushing game pass to people with no consoles. Just wish Apple’s TOS were different.

    Serious question.

    I have Xbone, Switch, Oculus Rift S and I occasionally play overwatch.

    Should I get a PS5 or XSX?

    Last I had was a ps3 and I got fed up after I replaced 2 BR drives, so I haven't played any of the last of us.

    I love COD zombies, Dying Light, Resident Evil etc.

    I'm an extremely casual gamer who never had a ps4 so is getting a ps5 to play the exclusives on it and the 4 games I missed.

    Might get the new Xbox eventually, but iirc money isn't really a factor for you so

    was about to ask about this $P1 or anyone else will everything be backwards compatible or just the stuff that already is? Is there a list of OG Xbox games that will be backward compatible? TIA

    Pretty sure its stuff that already is backwards compatible. But I only have xbox one games, so thats fine with me. Although it'd be nice to backwards compatible ncaa football 14.

    But the controllers for Xbox one are backwards compatible too which is nice I can use my current controllers too

    Xbox also says it "will be adding Bethesda’s iconic franchises to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC." A press release added that Bethesda’s future games will be added, at launch, into Xbox Game Pass on Xbox or PC.

    hot damn what a move

    No idea how the new console will play, though I’m optimistic, but I have to admit that this is a complete 180 from what we saw leading up to the One.

    Skyrim is best with mods as we all know. Would the game coming to Game Pass PC come with that flexibility? Game Pass PC Crusader Kings 3 has some mods through Paradox community, e.g., but Steam is where all the mod workshop magic happens. Something I’d be interested in knowing.

    Will preorder allow for the 2 year buy option? I mean there’s no sense in not doing that since it actually breaks out cheaper and I’m already paying for gamepass ultimate.
