Jeff compares the controllers, design, the games, exclusives and pretty much everything else you could ever want to know about how these consoles stack up. And of course, let's not forget about PC gaming options either.

  • I was thinking about getting a good PC but in the end it's just way too expensive and I don't want to deal with all the pc problems and needed knowledge. So I'm just getting a Series X instead of a PC. I already have a PS5 so yes I think if somebody don't want to deal with pc stuff just get both Next Gen Consoles and you will be good to go or happy with it. Especially if you already have a big library of PS4 and/or Xbox One games there is no point in buying a pc. The Series X will be an upgrade to my xbox one X that's why I'm still waiting with a series x. Maybe one year or two until MS has good exclusives from bethesda and others. For now my PS5 (and one X) is enough.

  • @CNET Xbox Series X has full RDNA 2.0. ps5 doesn't have RDNA 2.0 AMD confirmed. RDNA 2.0 a MASSIVE advantage in game development. The divide in graphics will be STAGGERING. Xbox Series X will dominate with all true next generation games. Worth noting in your video as it changes everything

  • THis is the first time in 20 years of consoles for me, that I don't see a point getting the newest one. With a 1080p TV in my Living room, there is no benefit for me to replace my One X with a Series X. But it is still good to see an awesome progress on both sides. It's sad that Sony still tries to bruteforce the money making by closing up everything and force customers to buy hardware. In Gaming overall, Microsoft has learned a lot and is on a great way. Making all services bundled in one single game pass ultimate subscription for all Generations and even PC, is a massive strategy. I just subscribed to PS Now to look how it feels playing games in the cloud and for 3 titles I always wanted to play. Let's see if it is worth the money without spending in a new console.

  • Both do the exact same thing not really much of a difference there only exclusives. Xbox series x is way more future proof. Ps5 pro coming in 2023

  • When it comes to the processor, the Xbox Series X is slightly more powerful than the PlayStation 5, though the difference doesn't have much impact on the gaming experience. The new Xbox's processor, or CPU, can go up to marginally faster clock speeds at 3.8 Gigahertz compared to the PS5's 3.5 Gigahertz.

  • They both have the same graphics but it really matters what tv or monitor you use. What I don’t like about the PS5 you cant use external hard drive to store your games so your limited on storage not like the X/S Xbox I hooked up my 5TB hard drive and was good to go. PS5 also locks you in Call of Duty multiplayer, so it seems that i was playing with bots not real player not like my Xbox X/S i was playing with people in Steam multiplayer in Call of Duty cross platform. I’m a big PS fan and i hope they fix this. X/S feels at home with mouse and keyboard support in Call of Duty the only difference in PC that in Call of Duty you can use a controller and mouse and keyboard combination, which is helpful when your in a vehicle you want to use a controller and in person mouse and keyboard.

  • Xbox Series X, better design and quieter/cooler, way more reliable, Sony need to work out the ton of bugs with their machines. All Sony have are exclusives which are great but playable on the PS4 Pro, even for a few more years. Games Pass is just a lot better for free games, you can only download a select few on PS Now. I love my Pro so i'll stick with it and get the X. I've seen it in action and it's a beautiful site on a nice 4K TV.

  • Tough call for me...I've been with Xbox but the Playstation controller is a big selling feature for me with the Dualsense (tho still prefer layout of Xbox). Still, the PS5 is such an AWFUL looking unit to me... i've always preferred minimalist designs. Can't go wrong with either one tho..
