“I feel Xbox will stop to exist as a console inside 5 years.

“Actually, why would MS waste the time and power making bodily consoles when others can do it for them within the type of PCs and Playstations? Their future is studios and Sport Move, which might be onerous to deliver to Ps, however not not possible.” – Segador

“I don’t suppose xbox as a console goes away throughout the subsequent two generations (15 years) however I do suppose the main focus goes to shift to cloud streaming as a substitute for 1st world markets. you place a cloud streaming app on android television and all of a sudden most fashionable sensible tvs can now play subsequent gen titles with none console linked.” – Bigburito

“That is clearly its final technology” – Nilus

“I actually don’t see them getting out of {hardware} altogether. However I assume I wouldn’t thoughts so long as Sport Move on PS wasn’t restricted to cloud streaming. And I say that as a primarily PC/Xbox participant who additionally owns every thing else and at all times has. The largest concern can be Sony virtually having a monopoly on the high-end gaming console market. Sony is an organization that wants the competitors, whether or not they or their followers wish to admit it.” – Connor Dickless

“I get pleasure from recreation go and I’ve loved my Xbox console, however PS has at all times been my favourite. And if main Xbox exclusives are going to be on Ps, I don’t actually see an enormous want to purchase one other Xbox console ever once more. I feel numerous folks will really feel the identical method. This screams to me that Xbox just isn’t assured in any respect that it has a future within the console market, though I’ve seen completely different takes on it.” – Westernwolf4

“For me it’s all about ecosystem. Spencer hit the nail on the pinnacle when he was pissed off with Redfall’s dogshit launch and complained that the Xbox One gen was the worst to lose as a result of that’s when folks constructed their digital libraries. I did that with Xbox so I’m sticking round, and so long as Xbox sticks round and I nonetheless do my dumb little achievement looking factor I couldn’t care much less that PS5 house owners to get entry to those video games.” – Evil Bilbo

“…every thing in regards to the Xbox ecosystem is miles higher than the PlayStation one. In the event that they didn’t have Spider-Man as unique I wouldn’t personal a PS5.

GamePass is leagues past PS+The UI is practical and fastQuick Resume is a literal recreation changer

Talking of console lights: no at all times on large ring mild surrounding my Collection X

The Xbox controller is far more comfy. Additionally I can simply sizzling swap the batteries at any time when the controller dies. (I do actually like the brand new triggers on the PS5 controller. That contact plate that by no means works proper can go straight into the rubbish although.)

Different random stuff: my TV can not acknowledge my PS5 except the PS5 is absolutely booted up (white lights on console) earlier than I flip my TV on. It’s going to bounce round each doable decision for eternity making an attempt to make it work if the TV is on earlier than the PS5. Sure, this implies I’ve to close my TV off to change to PS if I’m already watching/enjoying one thing else. “ – Brizian23

“…the Ps controller sucks, its UI sucks, its console design sucks, and if Microsoft pulled out of the console enterprise altogether I’d most likely simply swap to PC moderately than play on Ps. I stick to Xbox as a result of I prefer it higher, not due to unique video games.” – staindgrey

“The largest fully anecdotal and egocentric purpose for me to be towards that occuring although is I’d be compelled to play Microsoft titles with a PlayStation controller and I’d hate that as I can’t stand their controllers. So I’d most likely simply keep on with PC for his or her video games.” – Connor Dickless

“I’m at all times a fan of extra folks enjoying video games. Exclusivity is an anti-consumer apply and I’d love Ps followers to get the video games I play on the console they need.” – staindgrey

“That is nice. Counting on arbitrary exclusivity to promote {hardware} has at all times been dumb. Individuals should purchase {hardware} as a result of the {hardware} itself gives advantages they discover interesting, not as a result of shopping for that {hardware} is the one strategy to play particular video games.” – Jerykk

“I feel video games on extra platformers is nice for players, so I prefer it. I would like folks to have the ability to play what they need with out worrying what plastic field they’ve. The truth is, I don’t actually have a canine on this combat as a result of I personal all the foremost consoles as a result of I don’t wish to fear about lacking out on video games. I feel extra selection for all is healthier.” – Westernwolf4

“Exclusivity has produced a few of my favourite gaming franchises, however I feel it must die. I’m superb with restricted exclusivity, although. Solely having the ability to play Sony’s new recreation on an precise Ps for a pair months or a yr then getting it on PC and different consoles can be a superb trade-off, I feel. So long as the video games are optimized for the opposite platforms and never simply janky ports, after all (taking a look at you, Sony).” – RedEyedJedi410

“Software program ought to at all times be a strategy to differentiate platforms. Content material drives platform gross sales. That’s why Netflix has content material that Hulu doesn’t have. It’s why amusement parks buy rides. It’s why eating places have specials. When you remove unique content material, then you’ll virtually actually shrink the market additional.” – Tanzel

“if that is what occurs we’re dropping {hardware} choices. A trade-off is being made. I exploit my XBox for just about each recreation that isn’t unique to PS/Nintendo as a result of I just like the {hardware} and on-line companies higher. So whereas I undertand the sentiment that extra video games being accessible for extra folks is healthier it feels just like the notion of dropping choices on the {hardware}/ecosystem facet is being ignored.” – Vidikron7

“I’ve a PS5, so clearly, ‘yay,’ however I see the advantages to exclusives. When you didn’t have console exclusives, why would you decide one console over the opposite? Yeah, the PS5’s gamepad is fairly superior, however I’m positive the Xbox has issues the PS5 doesn’t.

But additionally, if Sony stated, “we’re bringing Final of Us to Xbox,” I wouldn’t be upset.” – David Leblond

“I don’t suppose that is a lot of a shock. Bethesda, and Zenimax at giant, was a enterprise based on a multiplatform market. Out of the blue pulling the rug out from below them may actually damage their long-term prospects. Ditto Activision-Blizzard — and certainly, Microsoft agreed to maintain Name of Responsibility multiplatform, partly as a result of they’re simply not going to recoup these prices by going unique instantly. It might be leaving cash on the desk.” – Ovy

“Does it have an effect on me and my Xbox? if not, then I don’t care. If it means a recreation is much less more likely to be on recreation go then I care negatively. If it means a recreation is extra more likely to be on recreation go then I care positively. Looks like the individuals who make these video games get more cash and so keep in enterprise in order that’s a plus.” – Framlo

“If the choice is Xbox and MS’s gaming division dies…then these franchises and that library of exclusives die with it.” – TRT-X

“Though I’ve all 3 consoles and a PC, the Xbox model is what acquired me into gaming so I’ll at all times have a smooth spot for it.

That being stated, I’m not shocked within the slightest, particularly after their pivot in the direction of subscription companies over the previous technology. Until Sony one way or the other ended up massively fumbling issues console technology, there was no sensible method for MS to catch as much as the way in which Ps has captured gross sales and mindshare within the public discourse.

My excellent situation is that MS retains making cheaper Collection S type {hardware} and simply promote them as small kind issue lounge PC’s that run full home windows, however I see them exiting the {hardware} area totally. Although I’d actually want them [to] preserve making {hardware} peripherals like controllers since I’ve by no means gotten used to the PS controller structure.” – archronos

“If Xbox needs to get out of the bodily console enterprise and get again into their extra pure lane as a software program firm it’s superb by me if video games (at the very least the massive boppers) will probably be multiplatform as rumored. Which means not simply on PC, different consoles, one thing that at all times appears to get glossed over – “oh, it’s not unique, it’s on Xbox and PC!” – which is like saying you’ve acquired each sorts of music, nation and western; it’s nonetheless unique to Microsoft-centric platforms, Xbox and (largely) Home windows-based computer systems.

If Sony doesn’t wish to enable GamePass on PlayStation to attempt to bludgeon folks into utilizing their (IMO) grossly inferior various, at the very least having the ability to purchase video games outright on that platform is sweet sufficient for me.” – Mr. Livid

“I actually, actually, *actually* fucking hope that this opens up the likelihood for a few of these MS-owned devs to work on PSVR2 video games/ports. Come the fuck on, Bethesda, get me a Skyrim VR and Doom 3 VR improve. Convey FO4VR to the system. The headset is so goddam wonderful and each AAA recreation helps underline that time.” – necgray

“How do I really feel? Shocked and shocked, largely. However MS has nobody accountable, however themselves. They’d the console world of their arms through the 360/PS3 period and threw all of it away chasing developments and ignoring the straightforward incontrovertible fact that video games promote gaming consoles. Not TV. Not sports activities. Not gimmick movement controls. Not your person interface. Video games. They bled all their gifted studios dry. They let all their mental properties sit round. And after they lastly realized they had been in bother, their response, as MS at all times does, was to go round making an attempt to purchase everyone else out. They’re an enormous soulless conglomerate who don’t know the best way to innovate or create, so that they need to drive folks into monopolies to outlive. I hate the concept Sony is about to not have any competitors, as a result of that’s going to result in smug Sony, however when MS was fucking every thing up so royally for thus fucking lengthy, this was certain to occur.” – MALprac

“Console tribalism is extraordinarily foolish, so there’s an argument for it once you’re like in elementary faculty the place any person’s uncle working at Nintendo clearly appears believable, however at some [point] video games lovers have to develop up.” – PossibleCabbage

“Usually, I take into account the console wars to be form of dumb. Both you might have the curiosity and disposable earnings to get each, otherwise you’re going with the one that most closely fits your earnings and gaming pursuits. However there’s probably not a purpose to combat over it. Each are superb – they wouldn’t be rivals if there was a transparent winner.” – Belaam

“Fanboys who really feel butthurt as a result of their valuable exclusives get to be loved by “The Opposing Faction a number of months down the road have to fucking develop up.” – Inzoum
