I remember that when Microsoft was selling it, the price wasn't that much lower then the regular Xbox One S.
I really do not like the look of the PS5. Someone here on RFD said it reminded him of that Simpsons episode where Homer designed the car lol. It also felt flimsy and cheap.
The bigger issue though, was the noise and the coil-whine. I'm picky with that kind of stuff. I decided to return the PS5 after a few months (got it from Costco so I had 90 days). Software-wise, the OS and UI was very impressive and it felt like a truly "next-gen" machine to me. The controller as well, I preferred more than the X. I really liked the option to just jump back into an area of Demon Souls through the main UI (skipping the initial loading screen and title screen). Load times in general were insanely fast, faster even than my gaming PC. When it comes to games, I know based on my history of having Xbox and Playstation together, that the Playstation will almost certainly have better games overall and in the end I will end up using it more than Xbox. At least, that's whats happened with the previous three generations anyway. Those in-house studios Sony has are very strong. So for me I'm really waiting for the revised/slim PS5 which will hopefully be better.
Xbox Series X is kind of the exact reverse situation. Hardware was great, software not so much. I absolutely loved the simple clean minimalist design, and I was blown away by how quiet that thing is. It's like the fan just sits at idle speed, even when gaming at 4k with something like Halo Infinite. I think this time MS built a better machine to be honest.
But software wise, I don't like the UI and surprised they haven't updated it yet. And in terms of games, I kinda know based on the past that usually my Xbox ends up collecting dust and I use the PlayStation much more. Especially for the exclusive content (Bloodborne, SpiderMan, Horizon, GOW, etc.) but also some games that I really like, such as anything Miyazaki-related (Sekiro, Elden Ring, DS, etc.) tend to have much larger player bases on Playstation, which helps with multiplayer. I also tend to like some Japanese games as well, which it felt like PS had more of. I had GamePass for 3 years and I didn't use it as much as I thought I would. I found it seemed to be mostly games I just wasn't very interested in, and alot of indie titles. But then again I'm picky as I usually just play a couple of games, but sink lots of hours into them. I'm not the type who plays a wide variety often so for me Gamepass wasn't utilized as much. There were some exceptions of course, like Outer Worlds.
So I just said hell with it, I'll buy a Switch and use that to tide me over until revised Sony hardware comes out and I decide what to do, then I can sell the Switch. But I've been enjoying Switch so much more than I expected, I think I may have lost interest in the other two, for now anyway lol.
I have something like this:
Xbox 360= optical drive
Xbox One= optical drive
Xbox One X= optical drive
Xbox Series X= optical drive
Xbox Series S= none
Yes. Very sure.
Unfortunately that 'workaround' is no longer worth it.
Sucks I couldn't get that summer game pass deal because mine was still active at the time. I just renewed for another 3 years for about $140 (eneba Turkey 12-mo gold for ~$45 x 3 + cdkeys global 1-mo GPU for $6). Good enough for me.
I've never seen someone so disappointed. He has autism. He fixed the box for a very long time then opened it and saw his fear be confirmed that there was no disc drive.
I didn't know that he got a few weeks ago a new fighting game for the Xbox One that can be upgraded to the Xbox Series. He also has a few other game optimized like that but they are all disc based.
Anyway, my cousin explained everything to his brother, as after all, he got a next gen console for free for which he'll play the new game on it and the worse case scenario is that he plays his old game on the Xbox One S.
Apparently, he doesn't care and doesn't seem to see it that way so we'll be returning the Xbox. I'm not going to give him any gift anytime soon...
My cousin is in no rush to get the PS5 for himself so looks like his brother will be skipping a generation...
As they say, "No good deed goes unpunished".
My Series S is my favorite console of this generation. It's lighting fast, so small that it's mounted seamlessly on the wall behind my TV, and has all of the best next gen features like quick resume, smart downloads, and seamless cloud saves. Add a GamePass subscription into the mix and you have an absolutely unbeatable value proposition in an exceptional package.
I don't mean to sound like a salesperson, but for this price it's a total homerun. If you enjoy gaming or are thinking of getting into gaming, this is the easiest, cheapest and in my opinion best way to do it.
Which is better for series s?
No luck finding one at Superstore on Black Friday, but forgot I had a gift card lying around, so semi-impulse bought it.
Upgrade from the loaner XBox One a friend loaned/gave me. I only play a couple games with friends so HDD capacity isn't a big deal, and only have a 1080p TV. I have a 2 yr old gaming pc for the rest (trying to play any kind of shooter on a controller is a giant lesson in frustration for me).
yeah I bought one.
Though, as you stated, with GPU, it's a great deal and every game I've bought for my S has been using codes from other regions (Turkey or Argentina) for significant discounts on the price. Though I've been waiting for Nier Automata to pop up on there but it's just not, nor has it been on sale for a while so the wait continues for that one.
If you don't have a decent 4k TV (let alone if you have a 1080p TV), there is no real benefit to the Series X.
I am a proponent of buying physical games because you can recoup your investment by trading or selling them, which is why I don't like the digital PS5 or digital Switch games, but game pass offers so much that it negates any loss in value from not being able to resell the occasional non-game pass game.
Why is it still very laggy? Anyone experienced this and successfully figure it out?
Anyway - a Series S with Gamepass (even paying MSRP for both) is the best value in gaming for the average user, full stop.
I am glad you had a good experience, because MAJORITY of people didn't have that. It sucked, it's dead, it's not coming back and that's a good thing.
Overall it really is superb value. I have an X with GPU but find I’m on PS5 more as the majority of my friends are in that ecosystem which is really quite frustrating lol!
Also, you can't play local coop games with just GamePass, which made me get the Series S in the end.
