I keep seeing vids and stuff saying how strong the XSX is. but on GAF there seems to be this whole Xbox fans eating crow thing. I think its just the fact that people can't deal with Sony putting out a weaker console. It feels very much like Trump saying Biden stole the election, only factual to the group saying it.
Rhetoric doesn't reduce a power advantage. Some PS5 games will play better in the early going.

Best to be quiet cause as time passes Xbox should ramp up in a way PS5 cant. It just is what it is.

xbox series x is shackled down to the series s. not to mention most game sales for developers won't come from xbox, playstation will remain a priority.

sony and the intelligently built ps5 made with developers in mind will be fine

Not upset at all, ofcourse PS5 will be a priority, it seems like a great console.
I just dont get all the PS5 has blast processing thread. Though I loved the Genesis.

They're basically achieving parity, with a slight advantage on average to the PS5, which really has knocked it out of the park this generation. Even then, it's not like the XSX isn't coming out on top in some game's modes.

For two systems priced the same, having approximately the same experience on both is nothing but great news. All that "most powerful console ever" and "power of the blazing fast SSD" was just marketing guff.

Get which one you like the exclusives or services of more, that's the only real difference at this point.

I just have not seen so many people triggered over having a weaker console. I'm just trying to prepare you all for when its not longer up for debate, thats all.
