Confusing as hell naming! Personally if I fork out for next gen I want the full experience. Best games come at end of the cycle and consoles being pushed (my ps4 and control juuust worked).

Game pass and the S is a good deal, but I have a pc so game pass on that and ps5 in 2022/3 for me

EA Play is being rolled into Game Pass PC & Ultimate later this year, so even more value to come. https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/09/09/ ... onal-cost/

I'm probably going for a GPU upgrade for the PC this year, then will see how the landscape looks once the games start coming out next year. The performance for the pricepoint on both boxes is ridiculously high (and presumably PS5 won't dare go above the Series X price), once we get out of the transition phase things are going to get exciting.

Yeah the game truly using the new power won't be until winter 2021. And any hardware build teething issues should be over by then. Maybe also a price drop.

I’ll get a decent console when it comes out, the PS5.
