Lower resolution and FPS on the PS5 side. Ouch.
Forgive me for maybe stating the obvious and if this has been said. Isn't this a bit of a flawed argument? (Suggesting superiority of Xbox because Farcry performs marginally better?)

If you are a gamer looking for the very best FPS and highest resolution then surely you get a beefed up gaming PC?

Meanwhile, a console gamer has the benefit of not having to worry about hardware and the biggest benefit... Exclusives IPs.

People still play Far Cry? Although I suppose when you're big system seller is another iteration of an old shooter I shouldn't be surprised the Boners are getting excited by it.

Ponies are getting excited about Medium that is a very average game.

The same one all the Boners got excited for when it hit Gamepass?

Don't worry, only a couple of months now and you'll have an "exclusive" and won't have to watch with envy as the third party games run better on the PS5.

That was before anybody played it. Once it had been played by enough people it became obvious that it was underwhelming.

I’ve no interest in playing the medium - just commentating on an article.

Decent video... I'll be getting an XBox again at some point for sure.

I use my Series X a lot more than my PS5 overall, mainly because of Gamepass and partly because it's just easier to boot up and play for a bit especially with Quick Resume which is incredible. I've also found it much handier than using my PC for certain games that are better played with a controller on the couch (main reason i got it!).

Going forward I'll use my PS5 for AAA's that you have to pay for/aren't on the X and the Series X for... well... whatever's on Gamepass. Mainly cause the PS5 does feel like a better next gen experience for the big games.

Basically, they uh.. kinda.. complement each other quite well and although I'd pick a PS5 if I only had to choose one, I'm really glad I have both cause they're both awesome in their own way.

Wait, I mean, feck microsoft lolz

Which games have you been playing on GP? I have been tempted to just pick up a series S for it.

Hades (played it on Switch before but it's much better in 120fps).
Just finished Psychonauts 2 (solid 8/10 game)
Hellblade
FIFA 21
Little bit of Apex
The Ascent
Sable
Back 4 Blood is out today so looking forward to that, was impressed with the open beta

Have 4 or 5 others installed I plan on playing but I don't like playing too much at once.

This is where it falls down a bit though. That list isn't compelling to me... As soon as the big games start hitting I'll be on board.

Don’t like how you said ‘little bit’ of apex

Going back to our chat from yesterday, there'd be a lot of merit I think to getting one if you're looking for more of those fun and short Metroidvania-type experiences. Gamepass is particularly good for indie and AA games and I've certainly played a lot of games I wouldn't necessarily have picked up otherwise (e.g. Katakana Zero, Gardens Between Worlds, Call of the Sea, Bloodstained, Celeste, Hades etc).
