    That new Harry Potter release looks quite good, so the PS5. Maybe for christmas as a gift to my son which I then spend a lot of time on when he's out ;) Been doing that trick for years (so many SW lego sets!)

    I may be mistaken but I assume the Hogwarts game is multi platform

    True I might do that for psp or vita games on now or store through PlayStation 5.


    PS3 60gb does have backwards compatibly fully and I know a store that sells it cheaper than Amazon.


    I just wish PS5 was fully backwards compatible. But oh well.

    Well that's cool. I never had that one, so I have just played PS One games on Vita.

    I’ve been an Xbox gamer since forever, so the Xbox, with those specs and the backward compatibility, is a no-brainer. The one thing PS has going for it is the exclusives, and now that they’ve finally got one I consider a must-have in Ghost of Tsushima, I’ll probably pick up a digital edition PS5 eventually and catch up on exclusives.

    PS5 of course. Best exclusive games to any console, so it's a no brainer.

    I’ll go for the PS5. I’ve been an Xbox gamer since the 360 came out, but there are too many PS4 titles that I want to go back and play when the PS5 comes out. God of War, The Last of Us 2, Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding.

    I might buy both now especially with Bethesda going to Xbox and being an X box exclusive games most likely.

    Starting to think the PS5 will be more of a legacy system for finishing PS4 games, plus the PS5 exclusives, while a later XBX becomes the current gen for gaming via GamePass.

    Storage is going to be an issue for new games but over time cost and capacity will both reduce and increase.

    PS5 in the short term. XBox Whatever in the long term. I might wait 6 months to get a PS5 though, in case @solojones PS5 explodes.

    6 months might be enough to ride out the supply issues expected early 2021.

    I know that the Xbox series x is going to fully backwards compatible for all Xbox one games and as well as the 360 games and original games that are currently backwards compatible for Xbox one. Plus there is even talk about make mores 360 games and original games that are not currently backwards compatible to become backwards compatible itself.

    But there is rumors that the Xbox series x might allow windows Pc games and steam to have the ability to play on the system itself.

    I hope that’s true so what I am trying to ask is has it been confirmed or not about pc gaming on Xbox series x?

    If not, I will still buy the Xbox series x anyways.

    I am basically getting 3 systems. PlayStation 5 and it can play PlayStation 4 games, PlayStation 3 60gb because it plays PlayStation 3 ps2 games and originals. And Xbox series x.


    I know I was I was recommended the ps store or the now app but not every old game was available.

    Going for the Series S as Xbox is where my current and past library of games are, which I'll be able to play with those performance boosts - especially those I've yet to start. Game Pass also gives me incentive to stay on the Xbox path as it'll allow me to try some games also yet to play.

    Microsoft might make Bethesda games more exclusive to the Xbox series x as well.
