Up until this year you’ve missed nothing. But in 2023 there’s Chernobyl, Redfall, and Starfield.
I think the main attraction for people is the game pass and how well backward compatibility is done. Being able to buy almost any game and play a remastered version of it on the Series X is quite tasty.
If I had a big back catalogue of Xbox games I’d love to pick up a Series X. Unfortunately I own a grand total of 0 Xbox games from any generation as the only Xbox I ever owned myself was a 360-which I traded in along with all my games for it after playing all the Halo games so that I could get a PS3 with LittleBigPlanet and MGS4.
It’s a shame because the backwards compatibility is something that should be rewarded in the console wars really-but Sony has always had my preferred exclusives so my back catalogue is all PlayStation. A real shame when the PS5 only goes backwards compatible one fucking generation, meaning my older PlayStations still have to see some action from time to time. Maybe one day when I have more money (and a flat with a bit more space ) I’ll grab myself a Series X.
I’d love to see Xbox make a handheld eventually since they never tried their hand at it. And tbh I want a TRUE handheld, not a Switch knockoff. Hmm…the Xbag? Give it a weird little handle like the GameCube had. :roy:
I feel the same. And the exclusives which are quite appalling on Xbox for me are all accessible via PC anyway, and they’ll undoubtedly all look and play better too.
Maybe if the Platinum Games project (Scalebound I think it was called?) wasn’t cancelled, we would be in a different timeline with everybody owning a Series X with the Xbox console exclusive of Metal Gear Rising: Re-revengeance.
Edit: I typed this up without knowing I was responding to you, Max. Really just saw a new avatar and thought it was some other member out of the total community of 4 people. I did not need to say all that shite as we’ve spoke about this together time and time again.
