Seems like the XBox guys aren't really interested in new gen gameplay videos as they rarely post any since I started asking, here's some:


Not how I thought it would look/play, still mildly interested though...

I keep seeing it but the amount of crappy horror games over the years has numbed my excitment. I'll play if it gets good reviews.

Also just learned PES 2021 is coming to Game Pass tomorrow if that interests anyone. I think you guys like football.

Let's be honest none of you give a feck about Stalker.

@esmufc07 you don't need a gaming PC either, isn't gamepass supposed to be coming to anything that can run it including phones, tablets, TV, raspberry pi, etc...
great post. No surprise the usual suspects ignored it.

So I’m getting one of these when they become available I’ve had every console of each generation so far and so have never cared about which is “better” but the reality of getting older is less time to play and so I can’t justify spending on both a PS5 and Series X.

So can anyone summarise what are the best features of both and the best upcoming games for both?

Does the entire game play as split screen or something?

Series X has a feature called gamepass which means you don’t need to buy the console to play its games.

My PC is no longer up to top spec (it was 8 years ago) but I do have an Xbox One.

Are there not many exclusives for the Series X then will they all be on game pass?

If you're happy to stream games onto another device rather than download and play locally on a console then you don't need an Xbox no

At the moment it's only Android phones/tablets but soon it will be laptops, iPhones and iPads through browser. I expect in the next year it will be on TVs (maybe as a smart app, maybe via Chromecast like stick) and older consoles (Xbox One)

If I had a gaming laptop, would I not be able to play Xbox games on it now? I've got Game Pass Ultimate (big up @VeevaVee).

They already have.
What is the PS equivalent? Is it expensive?

I got gifted game pass ultimate for Xbox one and thought it was good but I wasn’t sure if all the series X games would come onto it too at which point is it worth spending £500 on something that just looks nicer? I’m not really sure about what is better about these new consoles if all the games will work on PS4 and Xbox One hence trying to figure out which is better if you can only buy one. Like which will I see the biggest difference in services and games etc on offer.
No they will all be on gamepass
Is that just new titles or all future series X games? That may be a deciding factor for me.

I’ve got good enough connection to stream so could you have game pass and play series X games? If so that’s a brilliant idea from Microsoft does Playstation offer they too or would I need the console?

I’ve got ultimate too and I’ve been able to play on my iPad and laptop for Xbox One games but I wasnt sure if it would work for next gen.

As an addendum, Little Nightmares is free on games with gold this month. Looks like a nice little game, reminiscent of the aesthetics of an early Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
Thanks mate. Nice to be looked after by MS
