          What the fuck do you mean "such as?" Any exclusives. Exclusives are literally the only reason to buy a console.

            Most years, but it this scalping price hiking PC market xbox seems the natural choice to wait it out with gamepass and robust BC and emulation. Assuming you care about current tech at all. As a 2500k oldfag,I have plenty of money, but I would rather invest more in other hobbies like watch repair and hifi than line the pockets of opportunistic misers. I repaired a king seiko for the first time in the past year. Unironically felt a sense of pride and accomplishment. Thank you for reading my blog.

        Exclusives are inherently anti consumer. Stop slurping corporate cock.

        This.

        Exclusives are inherently anti consumer. Stop slurping corporate cock.

        He isn’t saying that he wants exclusives, he’s saying that exclusives would get him to buy one.

        Right now there is no reason to buy an Xbox if you have a PC and ultimately that’s a good thing for PC owners. The only reason to own a specific platform is exclusives or preference.

        In your opinion are PC exclusives anti-consumer as well? Or is it only when they are console exclusives?

          Xbox on PC is absolute garbage. The ‘Xbox is unnecessary if you own a PC’ is a dumb meme. The Xbox app is mindblowingly trash tier, PC gamepass is a joke, and the PC sku’s of many Xbox titles are fucking shit, as with The Ascent.

            they’re all on Steam with different versions. Xbox is a completely redundant console that shouldn’t exist.

            No, it’s not. If you have a good PC then there isn’t much point unless you want a separate desk and couch experience.

            There are no xbox exclusives anymore. The "Big 3" Xbox exclusives are all on Steam now so you don’t need to bother with the Xbox app unless you are using gamepass.

      Since I only play on PS5 any games I can’t already play that interest me. I’m not into Halo, Forza, Gears or Flight sims so still waiting. Crackdown and Sea of Thieves didn’t move my needle and while Ori is a beautifully crafted game I don’t play platformers these days. The One X is still my favorite machine of the recent bunch just a shame anything I likely would play can also be found on PlayStation.

      I’ll happily pick one up once they give me a reason I can’t ignore.

          They have plenty of third party third person games with heavy emphasis on story, that’s not a inherently Sony thing. It comprises a lot of popular franchises but I’d gladly take Ghost of Tsushima or Spidey over most of what they offer currently.

        I’m quite glad they do so I don’t have to worry about various hardware issues and tracking down what’s the cause. Driver updates are not too bad these days but the simplicity of plugging things in and it just working isn’t quite there from headsets to controllers and the need to use awful third party chat apps. You get a lot of cancer with mod support and Steam so it’s a pass from me.

      Not supporting censorship.
      I throw my money at any company who is combatting this cancer, so yes, I was ready to buy an Xbox and support it just because they were going to allow this game.
      Of course they bent the knee and banned it, so no Xbox for me.

        it’s actually so pathetic that consoletards need the devs to bestow graphical improvements on them when they get new hardware. meanwhile I can rune hl2 at whatever resolution I want because i’m not dependent on the blessings of microsoft.

          I’m glad that dynamic resolution became popular this gen because it does mean buying better hardware comes with some improvement automatically. It needs to be better though.

      Games. There’s literally nothing. At least Playstation has a handful of games, albeit a very small one. The Xbox has literally nothing. The fact that people try to make fucking Forza of all things sound like a hype game shows how desperate people are to pretend an Xbox is a better use of money than flushing it down the toilet.
