  1. Also own both, was defenitly more on the PS fan but since picking up a series x I haven't turned it off. Controller feel is second to none on xbox. ps haptic is no gimmick but I find myself turning off those features anyways when playing shooters online. Pair your series x with an elite series 2 controller and I promise you won't look back. I skipped the one x but previously owned 360 and the OG, the recent discovery game pass it has changed everything.

  2. Gamepass be having me like… “I’ll wait… they’ll probably drop it on gamepass.” And shonuff… DMC 5, Jedi fallen order, code vein… not to mention old faves like fight night champion… best gaming value right now…

  3. Hey bro just a random drop by. Enjoyed your video. You have a calm demeanor and I appreciate that, different from all the other mumbo jumbo bloated reviewers. I'd add more recorded gameplay clips rather than just recording your tv tho. Keep growing! Will sub, peace.

  4. If ya saying gamepass is great then ya didn't play any games in past gen. Half of gamepass games ppl own,owned or already beaten. They rest of gamepass games are old or just sorry India looking like they made for switch. U need to take a look at ps now they have a decent amount of ps4 games and ps3 games on there. They actually have more games then gamepass. For any1 saying I hate gamepass I have it, say I use it alot is a different story.

  5. This isn't news. Even the XboneX was better than the Ps4Pro but guess what nobody cares. PS has all the games. PS5 has all the hype. PS is continuing to bury Xbox in sales. Nobody cares about the XBox cause its just a low budget PC with no games. Lol nobody cares

  6. It does slightly annoy me that most of the games coming out for PS5 are just ported PS4 Pro versions, don’t get me wrong the PS4 Pro was great (and if it had wings and wheels it would probably takeoff) but I just want to play next gen games and I just don’t like that the PS5 is being held back! Does the Series X have the same problem or are all the titles actually next gen? I have the Xbox One but not Series X yet.

  7. I am a last gen PS4 user but I have been looking heavily into buying a Series X. However, does the recent move from Microsoft to increase the monthly Xbox Game Pass subscription to $120 a month have any effect on your favor of Xbox?

  8. After being a PlayStation gamer since 2002 with the ps2 to the 4 I manged to pick up an series x on launch day even though I preordered it the game pass is the cherry on top of the cake on this console and also the backward compatibly playing games on it such as ac Valhalla watch dogs legion and Fifa 21 looks very impressive in a 4K tv night and day difference from the ps4 pro and one x but the series x will be even better overtime hit man 3 and other games perform well now some games on it have been patched and perform better now

  9. Upgraded from the Xbox ONE S. Love the Xbox Series X with Game Pass and the stunning graphics. Still happy with my ps4 Pro for now. In the previous generation I played more on my xbox ONE S because of Game Pass but I also enjoyed the exclusive AAA titles on the PS4 Pro.
