    Why is Xbox always in stock, and no PS5's…. :(

    • +50 votes

      Apart from exclusives xbox series x is the better console imo.

      • -14 votes

        That’s arguable at best and wrong at worst. I don’t want to start a war but I think on pure specs, the Xbox is the more powerful console. It probably doesn’t make it the better console. That’s such a subjective comment.

        My Nan would say the Wii is the best console given its accessibility and motion controls.

        Game pass is a game changer though

          • Xbox is actually utilizing it's hardware even on non patched games like modern warfare for example which can play at 4k 120fps vs the PS5 which is running the PS4 version which doesn't go above 60fps which is the same for all ps4 games played on ps5.

          • Gamepass is obviously quite good with no such PS5 equivalent.

          • Much better looking console and shape, Seriously what where Sony thinking.

          • Backwards compatible with multiple generations of xbox games.

          PS5 only has a few exclusives and that's really it, controller is nice but certainly not enough to

          Please tell me why you think PS5 is better? Cause honestly excluding exclusives there is zero reason to own the PS5 that i can think of.

            @DisabledUser96265: I will. It actually has next gen games. Series x only has the medium.

            So far the consensus on Xbox is that plays old games. Paying for game pass to play old games we’ve all played before and bragging about playing even older games via BC doesn’t appeal in the slightest. Xbox is still waitbox. Waiting for halo, wait for Bethesda games, waiting…right now both consoles aren’t really worth buying but if you want the next gen experience it’s really not much of an argument.

              @nomoneynoproblems: I said excluding exclusive's which we already know is a plus for PS5 everything else is available on both consoles.

              Anything else cause so far PS5 only has one thing going for it and that's a few exclusives while having quite a lot of negatives.

              Outriders, Genesis Noir and Narita Boy all came out in April, how is that old?
              All Xbox Studio games are released Day One on Game Pass.

              Sure there's a huge amount of older games to fill up the library, but to suggest it's just older games is plain wrong.

            @DisabledUser96265: Nah. I never said the ps5 was better. It’s probably no better or worse. I can confidently say that the Xbox is more powerful and gamepass is amazing.

        • +1 vote

          Xbox runs most of the old games, so I don’t need to keep old consoles lying around (they take up alot of space), it also plays music CD’s (yes I use this feature), and it’s appearance is slightly less offensive.

          Spec wise there’s not much in it.

          To be balanced, the controller on the PS5 is better technically, but partially because they copied the xbox design.

          I might get a PS5 when they make a mini version in a few years.

        •  

          Wow a hella lot of down votes unnecessarily. Look, the PS5 has the exclusives, the Xbox Series X, in the current GPU environment, if you're someone with an older/aging Gaming PC or just had a Xbox One, it's still a great value of a machine. And the more it becomes like a PC the better, for $750 you wouldn't even get close to starting on a PC that is as capable.

          The PS5 still has the exclusives though, so it's still in higher demand and may even be in lower supply, that's why it's out of stock, plain and simple.

        Exclusives are how Nintendo have survived with their inferior hardware

        • +1 vote

          it's makes sense though all there games are more kid friendly which is how they beat the PSP/Vita and these days they don't really have any competition in the handheld gaming market.

          •  

            @DisabledUser96265: The PSP/Vita had plenty of family friendly games too but can you imagine Nintendo without console sellers like Pokemon, Mario, SSB and AC? No one would buy a device with specs from a 2 year old mid-range tablet if it weren't for the games.

      •  

        Couldn't agree more. I got the xbox series x first and love it, amazing graphics, controllers, choice of games etc and I upgraded from xbox one x. Then I opened ozbargin one day and PS5 was the first post and had stock so I'm like why not, let's get one. Well I got it and all I can say is mehhhhhh!
        - it does not fit anywhere or on any TV unit!! It's huge, looks good, but sony what were you thinking!
        - bought the ps plus thing to get some good games, oh wow, lacklustre, I got God of war and crash bandicoot and a couple other no name games, would of bought them both for $30 or $40 online
        - controller! Who actually likes holding the controller its a mess! The xbox controller feels good in my hands the PS controller's feels chunky and awkward

        That's my 2 cents on my recent play station experience. Don't hate, but I also am very far from loving it, just sort of sits in my loungeroom these days..

      PS5 is more popular?

      But yeah, Game Pass kind-of makes the Xbox Series X the console to get this generation. At least the more console, with a lowest cost of ownership, more powerful, and quieter. PS5 probably has better exclusives (for now).

          Face reality, Jim Ryan is destroying PlayStation the way Don Mattrick destroyed Xbox last gen. (Coming from a PS5 owner).

          At least Phil Spencer seems to care about repairing the Xbox brand.

          I get you are loyal to Sony, but how can you champion a company willing to erase its legacy (PS3, PSP, Vita), just so they can save a few bucks?

          • +3 votes

            @Vinodra: Just buy/play the console that appeals the most to you based on your preferences. For some, it's just the games (like exclusives). For others, it's the hardware and/or services (like Game Pass). For others, it's breadth of supported features (like legacy BC). For many, it's all of the above.

            •  

              @Spawn Peak: Why not both?

              Seriously they cost the same as a mid range GFX card

          • -2 votes

            @Vinodra: I don't think that it's fair to say that legacy affects the current games getting released.
            The lineup sony has had throughout PS4 and is gearing up for with PS5 is phenomenal, compared to Xbox or not. I could list them all but we all know them already. Can't say the same for Xbox.

            • +2 votes

              @softwhite: Their attitude towards legacy systems absolutely affects PS5, it represents a worrying change within PlayStation that is also being seen with the closing of Japan Studio and their overall attitude towards Japanese developers.

              Not to mention how the PS5 could easily emulate PS1 and PS2 (because Xbox can emulate these systems), Sony just doesn't care.

                    any real gamer knows that sony moved the off button on the 5 to a new button at the far end of the sub menu just because they forgot it to begin with.

                    the 5 is a disaster - moving games/ storage on the 5 is like prehistoric in comparison to the series x. why anyone pretends otherwise is strange. 1 drive - under 8tb - only 1 copy etc. about as unfriendly as it gets.

                    cyncics would say like samsung Sony likes to listen all the time.

    if i'm not mistaken, you can get 3% cashback on xbox gift cards at cashrewards, use it and get an additional 1.5% cashback for the purchase of the console

      The cashback is only for cash purchases so its either or.

    I've been a PC gamer for the last decade but am extremely happy with my series x. I wanted a new gpu but decided on this as it's cheaper and has more games than the pc game pass.
    My only gripe it's taking me ages to re-learn how to use a controller.

    The xbox feels just as good as my 1070ti PC. So it's roughly in that ball park in terms of graphical power, closer to a 1060/1070 though.

    Good bit of kit if you have game pass. If you don't then the Ps5 would be the better buy.

      There's no way I could go back from PC, I started playing outriders on xbox game pass to try and save some money and immediately said screw this and spent $70 for the PC version, M/KB for shooters feel a millions times better.

      Consoles really need to start having both controller and M/KB support especially for games like this where using it gives no competitive advantage.

      •  

        Since matchmaking parties on cross platform games are split between controller users and keyboard/mouse users it would be great if all Xbox Series X games support keyboard/mouse and just match up against PC players.

        •  

          Doesn't need to be split though it's not PVP so no way to gain competitive advantage over controller users so it's just down to preference which peripheral you wish to use.

      • +2 votes

        The devs already have the option of allowing M/KB support. Halo MCC just got it on Xbox.

        •  

          I know they have the option but the amount of devs adding support is abysmal.

      •  

        I wouldn’t discount all shooters though. Outriders has aim acceleration which makes playing with a controller terrible. I don’t blame you for buying the pc version. I specifically didn’t buy the game on console for that reason

        •  

          Wow no wonder it felt extremely bad, i have played games like horizon zero dawn with controller which is fine but outriders felt very bad.

      •  

        I found Outriders on Xbox worked with M/KB but couldn't figure out the mapping for the keys. Basic movement worked as expected, though.

      Pretty sure the XSX is much more powerful than a 1060 - 1070ti it has been compared with a rtx 2080 with the RT performance of the 2060. Pretty sure the GPU in XSX is a cut down version of the RX 6800 (XSX 52CU's compared to RX 6800's 60CU's) they run about the same 1815Mhz too.

      •  

        I just remember a snippet from a tech reviewer, might have been digital foundry or gamers nexus, and just remember them saying roughly 1070 performance. Maybe I was wrong, but it's definitely acceptable in my opinion.

          Definitely well above a 1070.
