Got my XSX preorder paid off with MS store credit, and 3 years of GPU all ready. Still have ~$360 in credit to spend on Yakuza 7 and Cyberpunk (though I might wait for the next-gen upgrade on that one) and I’m still feverishly farming up rewards points. Nothing upcoming really jumps out at me so I’ll focus on filling in my library, especially the games that I miss from PS4.
Switch for Nintendo exclusives (and hoping that any new ones aren’t built for new hardware)
Kind of over PlayStation. I liked my PS4 well enough but I really don’t appreciate Sony’s approach to… just about everything in this transition. I also dislike their exclusivity approach and I don’t love the look of the PS5 as it is. Miles Morales is the only game I was interested in, but since I can just get it on PS4, I’ll probably just wait until a mid-gen refresh.
Never been interested in PC.
Not really into many mobile games, but I’m hoping to get a Kishi eventually and I’m definitely gonna be paying attention to devices that can benefit from xcloud.
So I’m hoping that I won’t be spending too much money for the next few years.
Pre-ordered series X, and I’ll most likely get a PS5 in 1-3 years or whenever first price drop. Not really a souls guy, so don’t care for Demon Souls. However Miles Morales looks cool and same with Ratchet and Horizon but I’m in no rush to play those titles.
Got two Series X’s pre-ordered, along with a Series S. One of them will go to my Wife, and the other to my son - they haven’t decided who gets what yet, neither really care about resolution. I got my new Samsung Q90t this summer, so I’m all ready for nextgen. I’ll probably pick up a memory card around Christmas.
I don’t plan on purchasing a PS5 this generation, even after I started last gen with a PS4.
Game Pass has been a game changer for me and with the recent Zenimax / Bethesda deal, the amount of content we are going to be getting is absurd. I enjoy single player games but most of my gaming is multiplayer and co-op focused; I feel like Xbox has the best offering in that department.
Plus - it’s where my friends are.
I have also been very disappointed with Sony’s mixed or poor messaging and less consumer-friendly business practices as of late.
Just to update post #19. I have eliminated Marvel’s The Avengers as I decided to sign up to GameFly and it should be shipped out to me tomorrow. Nothing really to play in October so that should help me waste a week.
Pre-ordered the XSX and cyberpunk. Now I’m just waiting for launch. I am expecting most AAA games to come in at $70 and that I’ll be predominantly playing on GP. The cost of games plus the value of game pass and MS’s back compat commitment means I stay with Xbox as my main. I’ll get a PS later, maybe.
Getting Series X in early 2021, then a new TV by the end of the year. I most likely won’t get a PS5 before 2022, and at that point I might as well wait for a smaller revision that will hopefully also be less hideous and come with more storage.
As far as Nintendo goes, it all depends on what their next console is going to be, and whether they stop lagging behind when it comes to features, services, and attitude toward their customers (for instance, artificially limiting availability of certain games does not sit well with me at all, and if they don’t change, they can keep them).
I managed to get a Series X pre-order, so I’m set there (and with GPU I won’t have to buy too many launch titles either). As for PS5, I’m definitely waiting until (or if) they get enough games that I care about to make it worth it. The PS4 was an incredibly lackluster system for me with only a very small handful of games that were worth it (if I’d actually purchased a PS4 instead of it being my girlfriend’s I’d be upset that I wasted the money).
