PlayStation 5 vs Xbox Series X: Which is better?

24 nóv 2020
1 025 901 Áhorf

PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, the next-gen consoles are here. But which is better? Which do I prefer? And which do I think you should buy? This is my honest review and opinion, with one choice.
Having used and played both consoles over the last two weeks, I’ve compared them, side by side, in all of the important categories. These include the UI, controllers, games, gameplay, console looks and more.
A lot of you asked which console I would keep, whether the PS5 or Xbox Series X is better, and today I answer that question along with my honest review and opinion of them both. No console wars here, we’re all gamers.
Let me know which console you have or would buy?
The games I played:

  • Xbox series x will be better. AAA games are expensive as f now, demon souls remake is a rip off, xbox has many small games coming.

  • Right now, I just wish they both weren't sold out. But I do like the idea of Game Pass on the X Box, I could potentially take a gaming laptop with me when I travel for work and play the same games where I left off. Currently I'm still using a PS4... So I want both, like you said.

  • Thank you for your video I don't know how you managed to purchase one of these consoles though let alone both of them seeing as neither are available.I myself would go for the Playstation due to the controller looking more comfortable for my thumbs besides I am used to having the thumbs sticks aligned together like they are with my Wii U and PS3.

  • playstation is better. not only does it have good exclusives, its only for the console (horizon is for pc, only ps game on pc) every other xbox game is on PC. yes xbox is a little more powerful but litteraly getting at max 10 extra frames is enough for you to sacrifice an entire category of games, really!?

  • I have the ps5 because that’s my main console , and some friends from Xbox are coming to PlayStation with the next generation. I bought an Xbox one s in 2016 to play with them and play games with backwards compatibility and some exclusives like gears of war and forza and state of decay. So during tax time I’m probably gonna pick up the new Xbox probably the X because it has more space and the disc drive for backwards compatibility for my disc games but I do like how small the S is
