I'm sure this will start a flame war which is not my intention but I will enjoy.

 

Xbox player forever and thinking it's time for the next gen console when they go on sale during the holidays.  Just got a fancy 4k Samsung TV upgrade from a standard HD TV.  Honestly I went 6 weeks without a TV so by the time I hooked it all back up I'm not sure it really looked any better.  WOT that is.  4k is amazing for other things.

 

I think but haven't researched it that if I buy a PS5 I can port my account and not have to re-roll which I have no desire to do... correct?  So is there a reason to change?  Not just WOT but other reasons?  I cut the cord I now use all streaming services and basically my xbox is my cable box now so switching actually means more than just games but again I'm assuming for those purposes the consoles are comparable.  I'm assuming again maybe incorrectly as far as WOT goes the console is irrelevant.  Does it actually take advantage of either next gen console?  Is it going to look a whole lot better on a 4k vs. standard HD?

 

So does it just come down to game exclusivity?  New Halo is launching it's going to be hard to convince me to miss that and I only play the master chief campaigns.  Never having a PS I've never got hooked on it's exclusive titles though there are several I would like to try.

They offered the ability to transfer your Xbox account to PS only once afaik, when the Xbox 360 version of the game was being shut down and only if you had been playing on 360. 

 

Outside of that one specific situation I don't think they've ever let people transfer to the other platform. So you would likely have to start over with a new account if you went to playstation. That said, you could buy a playstation and just continue to use your existing Xbox to play tanks when you get the itch.

That I remember I just assumed it was permanent.  Guess the rest is irrelevant I want to play on NextGen and don't wan't to re-roll.  I don't do grinds anymore unless it's coincidental.  Xbox series and HALO it is.

 

I wish there was a way to delete threads.

The PS5 and Xbox series X are myths in the UK. Can’t get either one anywhere.

The Series S is everywhere.

My brother does have a Series S.

Performance wise, it's all you really need if you're using a 1080p screen.

 

The issue is storage. The Series S and the Memory card is more expensive than the X. The only reason why I would even remotely recommend them is that the memory card can also be used in the X, and both are actually available in good numbers. 

 

On the up side, very few games are going to be current-gen only for a good few years. Waiting is very much an option.

Tanks is pretty much all I’m playing at the moment…, in fits and starts.

Im quite happy to wait for supply to outstrip demand, for that reason.

Im in market for a XSX for about 22nd april. (stalker 2)

Second installment of intel dropped a couple of months back and lack of PS tag on any material is a deal breaker for me. 

Might just go direct to microshaft for console

If tanks is all you're playing, you probably don't need to upgrade for a while.

The only thing worth mentioning is that the game is more stable in terms of framerate on the current-gen consoles.

I have a decent 4K LG tv, and the Xbox One S. I’m quite happy with that setup for the time being.

With that being said, there may be games coming out on both current gen platforms I would like to play.

Again though, I’m happy to wait. I’m not in a hurry.

I'm trying to think of what games are coming to just current-gen, and not many come to mind.

 

You've got a few recent releases (Demon Souls, The Medium, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Ratchet and Clank), and I think Stalker 2 in April? Everything else that comes to mind is coming out on either Xbox One or PS4, oftentimes both.

 

Some offer improvements on current gen though. Battlefield 2042, for example, offers twice as many players per match than last-gen.

Nope. 

Smooth FPS all over, including the smokehouse on Himmelsdorf. 

 

I do get latency, but that's a different issue.

Or Milkshake at Mcdonalds as I found out the other day. They have a national shortage or Milkshake. 

 

And some of the local KFC places were out of chicken the other week. It's all kind of a mess.

I was hacked off to find Flight Simulator is Series S/X only.

 

And Enlisted which looks interesting but again next gen only.

Flight Sim is actually coming to Cloud gaming shortly, so will be available on the One as well.

You'll probably find they wont run on last gen Xbox consoles.
