      It costs $499 and when compared to a computer in regards to hardware power, it's in top 2% most powerful PCs used by Steam users according to HW Survey.
      Also – no online DRM for physical games, great backward compatibility, Game Pass, XCloud Streaming.

        Aren’t physical games basically glorified install keys now or is this misinformation? If Xbox is good for physical ownership still I’ll get one but I’ve been unsure about this

            Literally untrue.
            Microsoft requires a playable version of the game to be included on the disc and it caused a shitstorm among publishers when it came out that Microsoft themselves don't give a shit and released Flight Simulator and Halo Infinite incomplete. They changed their review process now so that games that are "live services" don't need to be contained in its entirety on the disc.

              Can't wait for Ubisoft to call every new single player game they release a live service now, lol.

            For those curious, this was a recent thing Microsoft finally fixed. Here's the video detailing it.

            Modern games still suck since a goof majority release broken/unpolished and require patches, but you can own the media, is what's important.

          Yes, physical games are now 100% DRM-free as long as you have the disc
          I'm guessing this is because Microsoft is betting on making most of their money on services and game pass any way so there's no reason for them to make life harder for physical game owners

        Not only that, but emulation is not only available on both the One and Series X, but doesn't require dev mode - Retail mode works just fine. I'm not the anon that posted, but I like to let people know about it as an emulation machine, because it's surprisingly competent at that. Even PS2 and Gamecube run nicely (on a game by game basis and on the Series X only, some games have weird bugs or framerate, mostly a PS2 thing. Xbox One can do up to PSP and Dreamcast with few issues).

          Most PC games are just ports of console games, anon, so yes, it can usually play them.

          >emulate anything up to a PS3/Wii U/Switch?
          Yes.
          It can also emulate Windows 95, Windows 98 and MS DOS.

              Can you elaborate?
              PC is very rarely considered a platform of choice for game development because it's a hard market to make money off. Hence why most PC-exclusive titles are choke full of microtransactions, you can't make money on PC just from sales. PC gaming market is mostly subsidized by console market.

        said, you can’t buy the Series X version of crossgen games on disc, because the disc only have the lowest console version of the game. There was also that service outage a few months ago that showed that Xbox Live doesn’t have to be down for more than a day before nobody can play any games at all. I enjoy the Xbox now, but fully expect that I don’t “own” any software on it at all. It’ll be a pretty good emulation box, once it’s out of service and hacked wide open.

        The Switch and Evercade is where it’s at, when it comes to collecting, currently.

          Yeah they do and they've worked for years. Just use a VPN on the redeem page on Microsoft's website and use the code, usually end up buying brand new AAA games for around £30-40, and older games for just a few pounds (bought DMC HD collection for around 70p)

          CDKeys is more expensive and generally has only UK/USA codes, I usually use Gamivo and Eneba and they usually advertise discount codes on their website (if not, try HOTUKDEALS on Eneba)

          No worries lad, happy to shill them because I like to save money like a good garden gnome.

          I've read about this method but never took advantage of it because in the back of my head I can't help but think eventually they'll do blanket revocations on these "buy a key from some third world country and use a VPN to redeem it" tricks.

          I just can't understand why anybody would bother with consoles today when you can just play the same game on ultra with 60+ fps on a good pc. Owning a console made sense 10 years ago when there were must play exclusive games on them and games were poorly optimized on pc but today pretty much all games come to pc eventually and you don't see huge fuck ups like gta iv anymore

    As usual if you want to play everything you'll eventually need all the hardware. I usually use the Xbox just because so few new games interest me and I like the backwards compatibility. Best version of Ninja Gaiden and 2, best version of Red Dead Redemption. Another big plus for me is the controller. I don't have a PS5 because it has no games, but eventually there'll be another Bloodborne or Demon's Souls and I'll end up getting one. Switch got a ton of use with MHGU but nothing recent as I don't like this new style of Zelda or Mario. All that is to say: become idort.
