Is there a point getting into the Xbox ecosystem at this point when I've had a playstation 4 since launch and I have most multiplatform games?

I'm sorry, paying monthly fees to play old games makes a new system worth it?

Old games? All first party titles and many others releases are day 1 on game pass. Recently finished the Gears 5, new Ori, streets of rage 4. Gears tactics is out. Forza and Halo releases on day 1. It goes on. Rdr2 is now available. It's never ending games.

Thanks, I called and they had 1 unit at the store with a slightly damaged box. The clerk was so helpful setting up my rewards card, he informed me that I earned around $115 worth of points just from that one purchase. So happy with it!

Why lower the price of PS4? Xbox is done, so PS4 (and Switch) are in high demand.

I also want to add a pointer for anyone who may know someone with XBOX Ones
XBOX lets you game share
https://www.usgamer.net/articles/09-07- ... -live-gold

If you have someone you trust, family/close friend you essentially can pay 50/50 for all games/game pass/xbox live

You just have eachother xbox marked as home, you either just each buy a game and itll split or just pay eachother doesnt matter the point is you can essentially have it 50% off on games
digital ofc but its 2020.....

I just don't see it as a valid reason to spend $400 on a new system then when I'm already invested with my ps4 and can get PS Now. It's tempting to get but I'd like a reason to get into the system this late in the game.
I have zero inclination of getting the X series system.

Xbox has a bit better hardware than PS4. However, PS4 has better exclusives IMO. Regardless, Xbox also has some decent exclusives - gears, halo, etc, that will require a PC/Xbox if you like them. Game pass is also a great value for some games; I’ve played Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears 5, metro exodus, Ori and blind forest, Ori and the will of the forest, streets of rage, etc for way less than I would’ve paid on PS. I personally like both platforms but use a gaming PC to play both multi-platform and Xbox games since most Xbox titles are now being released to both PC/Xbox and I use PS5 for PS exclusives.

If you don’t care about the Xbox exclusives, there’s very little reason to get an Xbox. Another deciding factor is seeing which platforms your buddies have. Having fun with friends makes whatever platform more fun.

Have both Xbox One X and a PS4 Pro. PS4 has excellent exclusives. Just top notch games that are insanely fun.

If the game is for both consoles, I’d rather play it on the One X. It just has better hardware. Games run better on it.

GamePass ultimate is just better than PSNow in every way. Just started RDR2 but they have a healthy selection of excellent games that rotate in and out frequently to keep it always fresh.

Personally, I like the different custom designs of the Xbox controllers and I own a few of the better designs. However, when playing the game, I prefer the feel of the PS4 controller.

Anyways, there’s a reason to own both. Both are unique and I switch between the both of them frequently. If I had to chose one though, I still prefer the PS4; the best exclusives period.
- Don't support hoarding. Do your research, decide on the price you want to pay for it. Don't ever pay more than that.
