And he would be correct. Better games, better controller design, better online experience.

Better looking too. The PS5 is awful. Oh, and the design of the Xbox is amazing. Not seen the inside of the PS5 yet, but from the size of it yeah.... Hardly any design went into that !

That is where I will have to disagree. The Xbox Series X looks like a huge black brick whereas at least the PS5 has some nice style to it.


Besides. consoles should NEVER be used standing up. Horizontal only.

Nice style? it looks like a plastic Alienware case from about 8 years ago. It's revolting, and the one with the abscess on the side looks even worse.

I don't care what the Xbox looks like on the outside. I care that it's not honking huge and is far less visually offensive than the abscess panda.

Putting that heffa on its side requires a stand FFS. It's just totally too big, too clunky and quite obviously just a honking ass PCB with no thought put into it whatsoever.

Inside the Xbox is a marvel in comparison.

It's also quite a bit more powerful and that is what will matter with RT. Fast SSDs my bellend.

According to whom exactly ? The XBSX's external design is focused on thermals, This is helped greatly with its chimney-like design aiding natural heat convection i.e heat rises.

He is right actually. based on previous Gen, MS even admit you should not put your Xbox vertical.

When doing so, especially on ps4, you remove an air vent due to the stand being used.

This new Gen is a whole new ball game though. Tts literally design for both orientation.

I think he meant at all times though, No matter even if they are actually designed to be stored vertically due to how their cooling is designed.

I really don't think there will be much in it performance wise. PS5 uses a completely different API. Its like trying to compare a PC and a Mac with similar hardware, in some uses the Mac destroys the Windows machine, but in others its a nightmare just to get the software to work.
I don't think there will be much in it tbh and it will be more of what exclusives are available and how much you'll have to pay to play online. If either really want to make higher sales than the other, they should remove the price for online play. If either one did this the value of that console would skyrocket. Both subscriptions set you back a lot of money over the time that you own them if you want to play online (more than the console itself if you buy at release and keep until the next generation)

Good point but they do use the same GPU architecture and a 2TFLOP performance advantage for the XBSX is pretty massive, Just look back on the base XB1 and base PS4, PS4 was only ahead by a small margin in terms of raw performance but it made quite a big difference in resolution and frame rate, The latter being more important IMO.
