Of course, just because we all went PS4 doesn't mean everyone else did. I'm not sure what Microsoft could have done to magically make your friends be on XBox

They could have given us all free consoles and made Doc pay 10 x the normal price.

They should totally do that next.

Sure, although I think what we all did wasn't uncommon, based on other forums and other gamers I know on the Internet and in real life.

Quote:

"Not sucked out loud at launch", obv:

* mandatory Kinect and associated extra price
* hilariously stupid DRM scheme
* muddled messaging about if it was even primarily a games machine ("TV! TV! TV! Sports! Sports! Sports!")
* some actual good year-one exclusives

We didn't get PS4s until a year or so in, so there was plenty of time for MS to make its case. It didn't even come close. The Xbox One was our default purchase, coming from 360; it was MS's game to lose. And lose it it did.

Ah right. It seemed like you were criticising the X1X specifically, rather than the x1 at release.

Yeah, we were all heavily invested in Xbox at that point. They had to do something really stupid to make us all switch. And they did.

Oh, no, except that the X1X exists within the wider context of the X1 of course.

Indeed, but I guess what I'm inferring is that seemingly the only way back for MS is for Sony to massively fuck up the PS5 launch.

The way I see it, the PS4 being more successful than the X1 is just the world going back to normal. The 360 was just a freak occurrence in the grand scheme of things.

I should be but my monitor doesn't do the right kinds of 4k apparently. I kind of knew it but had thought a hdmi to displayport adaptor would work.

None of them do.

But until that gets fixed it can go in the living room because it's smaller, quieter, faster, prettier and has fewer LEDs than the one.

There's a pretty high chance of this, Sony are past masters are snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Also, which ever company is 'on top' always thinks they're bullet-proof enough to start doing some stupid customer-fucking corporate nonsense and they'll totally get away it this time round because when has that ever not worked? (aside from all the other times of course) No entity in the universe has a shorter memory than a massive corporation who've been recently successful.

But on the other hand, they aren't likely to have forgotten.

They are, to my knowledge, the only console manufacturer to reclaim top dog spot.

That's less to do with their own actions though and more to do with MS making such a cunt of the entire situation. I mean Sony rightly just focussed on selling their games console by talking about games, but had MS also not fucked everything up I doubt so many people would've made the switch.

That was my point. Their success was due to Microsoft fucking up. Is Microsoft's only way back to the top now if Sony do the same?

Probably. There's a lot if inertia involved in being on a technical platform these days--not least in this case due to the number of your friends that are also on it--so it's more like you need a specific reason to change away rather than looking for reasons to stay. If MS had announced backwards compatibility early on and not been dicks about everything else they'd have utterly and completely buried Sony.

Xbox One X get. Damn it’s heavy.

But most of all, it’s a damn sexy bit of kit and looks terrific. I’d say aesthetically it’s much better looking than the PS4/Pro for a black box.

I’ve got Halo: MCC, Halo 5 and Quantum Break so far. I’ll be getting that Cuphead an’ all.

I don’t think it’s a bad time to try the Xbox OX and catch up on some of the games missed out on. Most of all I’d like some Halo 3 MP shenanigans again if more people took the plunge... but they probably won’t. :(

Yay!

What’s this Xbox Games Pass about? Does it allow you to download the games? It ain’t a streaming service like PSN is it?

It's like the EA Access thing - a big catalogue of games you can download and play whenever you want, though some games are cycled in/out every month. No streaming, thankfully.

Gotta say, the image quality in Halo 5 was pretty darn nice at 4K.
