    Sony execs are like, "Shit, they are only charging $300 and $500??!?!?!"

    Im still getting a Playstaton but you know Sony is scrambling right now.

    Man we live in a world where the most expensive piece of hardware are friggin smartphones that barely last 2 years before their batteries start to crap out.

    I hope the trend of monthly payments on consoles continues. I would gladly pay $35 month for 24 months. It even includes gamepass I believe.

    Do you know if it has USB slots? And if so, will it be able to support the external drives from the Xbox One?

    Nope. Just a joke a joke that both companies were waiting for the other to release their prices first.

    This is how I did it. It wasn't until Call of Duty with 200+ gigs did it ever become an issue.

    Has it been confirmed that the price for the X is 500. I've only seen Microsoft confirm the price of the S.

    That price isn't actually as insane as it sounds. A 1 TB PCIE 4.0 SSD will cost you a minimum of $159 right now and that's with relatively low read/write speeds. Not saying they're not going to skim off the top, because they will, but its really not a fucking lol when you actually price out the parts.

    You know what? You're right they haven't as far as I know, it's just sort of implied.

    I mean if youre gonna buy an s but 500 gigs isnt enough, you may as well buy an x since it will be cheaper

    Imagine being so dumb that you don't realize the implications something like the Xbox Series S will have on the next gen situation and the future of consoles going forward.

    You can have a next gen console that plays all next gen games bundled with Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass and stream games to mobile devices, all for only $25 a month. You literally get a new console that plays all new games, access to all the multiplayer stuff for it, as well as over 100 games through Game Pass including all first party games on their release day as part of it, AND stream games to any android device (and hopefully Apple at some point as well). And you can have all of that Day 1 of the console's release.......for $25 a month.

    Also considering the current situation of the world at large due to the pandemic and a lot more people than usual being strapped for cash, and something like this is a HUGE deal for people who still want to play video games and keep up with the Jones'. Not to mention that more and more entertainment mediums (including video games) are heading towards subs/ecosystems/streaming/etc, and Microsoft is setting themselves up nice and pretty for the future. Meanwhile, we'll probably see Sony scrambling to catch up in all of these regards. Microsoft is literally giving gamers the most consumer friendly option available for next gen and all some morons can do is laugh about it while they pay Nintendo more money for another release of the same Mario game they've owned and played several times over already. The sheer amount of stupidity in that is astounding.

    You can hate Microsoft all you want. You can prefer Sony/Nintendo exclusives all you want. You can PC master race all you want. But the fact of the matter is, this shit that Microsoft is doing is game changing, and represents a shift in the video game world whether you want to realize that or not. But keep being a Sony Pony/Nintendo Weeb/PC master racer/whatever, and not being smart enough to realize what is playing out before your very eyes. People who actually realize the significance of this are really excited about what this means for video games going forward, and aren't sitting around like a fucking idiotic weeb going "LOL NINTENDO GAME HAZ MORE ATTENTION THAN XBOX!! LOL!"

    What do you mean? Xbox usually gets the vast majority of 3rd party titles.

    Only thing that is "FUCKEN LOL" is your apparent ignorance on the price of this kind of technology currently. Yeah, it's expensive compared to what we were use to this gen. But this is the launch of next gen tech. That shit always has a price premium at the start, especially when it's used in a way that's never been done before. The prices will come down over time, just like it always does as technology ages and matures. And if anyone needs more than 1TB of storage for the first year they own the console, then they need to learn how to uninstall unnecessary shit they no longer play.

    Will you also say "FUCKEN LOL" when Sony's add in SSD's are also relatively expensive to buy and the PS5 itself will most likely be fairly expensive due to the super expensive proprietary storage system it has (and that we've seen multiple rumors and leaks on that it was causing Sony headaches trying to bring the cost of production down)? Because if you end up praising Sony, then you'll be nothing but a giant fucking hypocrite.

    It will support older external drives (aka, anything that's not the new proprietary SSD that you have to buy from MS/Seagate) but only as a way to store next gen games or store/play last gen games. Stuff developed specifically for the Series X will require you to have the game installed on the internal SSD or the proprietary SSD you can add in if you want to play the game (you can store the game on any storage device, you just won't be able to play it until you move it to the faster SSDs). But games from this gen and older can play off of any storage device you have hooked up the the Xbox.

    $35 a month for the most powerful next gen console ($25 a month for the Series S), Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and the ability to stream your games to mobile devices. That is a HUGE amount of value for $35 (or $25) a month. Unfortunately, there's a lot of Sony Ponies/Nintendo Weebs out there that don't understand the significance of this and are currently circle jerking to the tune of "hurr durr, MS is fucked, lol". MS is probably giving us the most consumer friendly option out of all the console makers for this next gen, and all the dumbasses can do is laugh and make fun of it because they're too fucking stupid to understand how the real world works (especially during a pandemic).

    Sony's storage system is not going to be proprietary. You can fit regular high speed m.2 nvme drives. This has already been confirmed.



    Also, I have no idea what Microsoft is trying to accomplish this generation. Sure things like Gamepass are cool, but there is no compelling reason whatsoever to buy a series X over any other console or a pc. They just don't have the games. No exclusives. Nothing of interest. I feel this could be the last generation of hardware from them and can see this backfire really badly.

    Correction: You can only use SSDs that Sony officially approves, and I can almost guarantee those will see some kind of premium put on them because of it. And they won't be cheap regardless. You'll still be paying ~$150-$200 at least for a decent/reliable 1TB SSD. And the internal storage and the system associated with it is proprietary and very expensive. We've been hearing leaks for quite awhile now that Sony has been struggling to keep the cost of the PS5 down due to this system.

    As to your second comment: This strategy obviously isn't aimed at someone like you. But to sit there and say "$25 a month for a next gen console, Xbox Live, and Xbox Game Pass and the ability to stream my games to mobile devices is dumb" is not understanding just how significant something like this is for a lot of people. Especially people who live on tight budgets (and during a global pandemic and job losses no less). Will it win MS the next gen "console war"? Maybe, maybe not. But it WILL have ramifications on how video games and consoles are handled going forward. Because you can bet your ass we will probably see Sony shifting their strategy as well to catch up to MS in this regard or compensate in some way.

    Plus, all this strategy has to do is be profitable (and I'm sure it will be). If MS turns a profit on this, at the end of the day, that's all that will matter and will be enough to keep them going. They don't have to "win" the console war to stay in it.

    No, see Mark Cerney's deep dive presentation. The SSD's must have a minimum spec in order to be used in the PS5, not an 'official approval'. You will be able to use high-end SSD's that are already widely available on the market provided they meet the minimum specs.

    The minimum specs will be shared at a later point in time however.

    If you are going to consider broke people as the primary target audience, think again. Why would they buy the new system? They will just stick to whatever they have or just don't buy it at all. They have no money. My concern is aimed at why you would even buy a new xbox compared to a PS5, a PC or even a Switch. Microsoft brings zero incentive whatsoever when you want to play (new) games.

    So SSDs that are more or less officially approved by Sony. Thanks for proving my point I guess? And to think those SSDs will be cheap considering the specs they will most likely have to meet is pretty fucking hilarious to say the least. A lot of the SSD manufacturers can slap a "PS5 compatible" sticker on them and then consider that a good enough reason to increase the price on them.

    Lol. It's not broke people, or just broke people. You vastly underestimate people who look for value in their purchases or people who will buy this as a gift for someone and will go with the cheaper option. Hell, I'm seeing a lot of people all over the internet already saying they'll pay the $25 a month or just the $300 straight up for a Series S to get access to Game Pass. And these are people who, before the announcement, had ZERO interest in the next gen Xbox stuff. But because of the VALUE of the deal, they're actually willing to fork over their money for this now because MS is actually giving them a reason to do so. There's a lot of people who only game on consoles, and a deal like this is hard to pass up, even for someone who maybe only played on Sony this past gen.

    And I've literally already stated WHY someone would buy the console, in addition to what i just said in the above paragraph. You can get a hell of a lot of value out of $25 a month. A next gen console, Xbox live, Game Pass (which is over 100 games and gets first party titles when they launch, so yes it does get NEW games), and the ability to stream all of those games to other devices. NONE of the competition offers that kind of value for that price. And there are actually a lot of people out there that either don't care about exclusives or don't care enough about them to spend extra money on another console for one or two games.

    This proposition obviously isn't aimed at you. But to sit there and act like this doesn't apply to anyone else is quite frankly, stupid. This is literally one of the most consumer friendly things we've EVER seen from a console maker, and you're sitting there acting like it doesn't make sense. You're the type of gamer that Sony and Nintendo LOVE......easily fooled into parting with your money for their own shit, even if it's a worse value.

    Game pass will soon include EA Play now...sometime this year around the holiday season...at no additional cost.

    At this point, it isn't even a console war anymore. Microsoft is in the cloud gaming business. So long Sony and Nintendo!

    Imagine actually wanting to play ea games. I also dont understand the obsession with gamepass. They constantly take games off and who knows when the one you want will be on there
