Anybody interested?

 

I thought the unveiling was completely uninspiring. Some crap about a solid state drive ? We should already be at that stage. Can't see me bothering. Anyone else?

The XBox One I bought at launch died in February, I've been holding off replacing it with an XBox One S or X due to the next gen consoles rumoured to be launching next year.

 

Like @DB11 says, if the games come, I will buy.

Unless there's a huge increase in performance etc, not sure I see the point in PS5 or a new Xbox just yet.

Biggest step up between console generation ever, apparently...

Fair enough then! 

Maybe I'm just annoyed as no way I'll be able to afford one!

I think the step up to native 4K will be a massive step up that most people will notice immediately, it will be the same as going from SD to HD between the PS2 and PS3. Future 8K support would be insane as well.

Specs are nothing that hasn't been available on a pc for at leat two years.

 

Ray tracing is gimmicky at best. 

 

SSD? Hardly cutting edge when nvme drives have been around for two years and are far superior.

Isn't that always the case though with consoles? I'm always amazed consoles last as long as they do when you're stuck with dated specs right outta the gate.

 

Part of the reason I got away from PC gaming was that need I always felt to upgrade something. Then you have new drivers and it works well for one game but not as well for another, etc.

 

I like consoles as I can just sit and relax and play my games. I don't feel bad getting a new system as I'm sure with PCs I would have spent way more money for gaming. 

 

I don't usually buy the new console versions right off the bat though. I think PS4 had been out about a year before I got mine.

My brother has the Xbox one X and thats a beauty, so could be amazing to think what the new gen will be like. But, do worry with how much it'll cost; both the consoles themselves and the games for them. It's expensive as it is.

Agree with you here, unless you're happy to be tweaking things and adjusting various settings to get your PC to run effectively then consoles are superior. My friends like doing that and having better graphics etc whereas I'm happy to just sit down and turn the console on knowing I can play in a matter of minutes.

Duno about that dude. Iv had a 1080ti for two years and I have yet to find a triple A title it can't handle on ultra at a steady 60fps.

If the Xbox One didn’t make you switch I’m not sure anything will

Same. The only thing I'll miss is the Xbox controllers, but I think you can get PS controllers in the shape of Xbox ones?

 

I always wait a year or so before purchasing new consoles, let the glitches sort themselves out while the price comes down by £100-£150.

Now I'm not trying to start console wars here or anything I own and enjoy both, but what on earth makes you say that given it's exclusive range is far inferior and the standard console is technically inferior

@somebum are you ever happy? 

No, because the entire philosophical outlook of a real person can without doubt be based on their online persona, can't it.:appl:

It's alright, I thought you were saying the opposite of what you are actually saying!

You can put one in if you really want to save 10 seconds on boot up lol 

No thanks, I'd rather have the ten more seconds of not experiencing a system struggle to maintain 30fps in AAA titles
