Tbf XBox still has no games. Let's wait for them to actually release some compelling games before we get carried away here.... I know y'all don't wanna hear that though.
When their back catalogue comes to game pass I might look at investing in it on my PC for a period of time so I can play the games that I have not played yet.

That’s a weird stance if it’s your favourite game ever. But everyone is different. A mate of mine adores Fallout, was massively against switching to Xbox, but is now thinking about it. They’re probably more of a console seller than the likes of Last of Us and Uncharted are, because they have big cult followings.
I think of it as, in isolation yes it’s my favorite game, but more games that I’ll play on the whole will be released on Playstation rather than Xbox (JRPG’s are one of my favorite genres for example) and all of my friends are on Playstation and will remain on PlayStation, so for me on the balance of things it’s not enough for me to say I’d switch to Xbox for it.

Yeah that’s fair. I guess a second hand S might appeal eventually though in cases like yours.

Im thinking that if it comes to it I’ll play on PC. I’m not someone that really cares that much about visuals so once my laptop can run it then I’ll go with that, or whatever computer I have at the time when one of these games releases.

Is it possible to recoup a $7.5 billion investment if you don’t sell Elder Scrolls VI on the PlayStation?” I asked.

“Yes,” Spencer quickly replied.

Then he paused.

“I don’t want to be flip about that,” he added. “This deal was not done to take games away from another player base like that. Nowhere in the documentation that we put together was: ‘How do we keep other players from playing these games?’ We want more people to be able to play games, not fewer people to be able to go play games. But I’ll also say in the model—I’m just answering directly the question that you had—when I think about where people are going to be playing and the number of devices that we had, and we have xCloud and PC and Game Pass and our console base, I don’t have to go ship those games on any other platform other than the platforms that we support in order to kind of make the deal work for us. Whatever that means.”

Doesn’t matter, it’s only coming on Xbox, pc or platforms that support game pass.
Yeah, but makes no difference for the new gen so we can all buy ps5s then move over to xbox the gen after?

Or just buy a calculator in a few years and it will be on that anyway.

Starfield is coming out in the next 2 years and I expect Elder Scrolls to come out the end of this new generation.

So buy a calculator.
