We compare the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 in terms of boot times, load times, and picture quality....but is it fair to mention the DualSense controller because that thing's rad!

    A PS5????? DID I hear that right? A LITTLE PS4??????? And YOU think you are not even CLOSE being a "GAMER". GAMERS, RISE UP, YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS HAPPING HERE. People think they are gamers and playing on a CONSOLE? A CONSOLE!!! We, Real Gamers, We play on PC:s, CUSTOM BUILT! And YOU think you can come WITH US with your little CONSOLE, REAL GAMERS HAVE BUILT THEIR OWN PC. AND ALSO ONLY 300 HOURS??? We have ATLEAST 1000 HOURS on EACH GAME, AND WE have ATLEAST 200 games in JUST STEAM. THEN YOU GUYS COME AND CALL YOURSELF A "GAMER", YOU WILL NOT ONLY GET PUNISHED BUT YOU WILL ALSO NEVER BE A REAL GAMER! REMEMBER THAT!

I mean, I never did, but I'm sure there were other inane meaningless technical differences I used to argue about online in 2007 or whatever with PS3 vs Xbawks.

    It's the same as always: If you own a PC, buy a ps4. Almost every xbox game, you can play on PC. PS5 is very good if you're there for exclusives. Also the ps5 controller is better. Though I'll be honest, consoles are getting closer and closer to PC territory. So if you can only afford a console, it's still a super good choice, you'll be fine for 5+ years anyways.

    @chef goldblum Also no offense but having higher FPS doesnt mean you slaughter everbody because you know...aim...team...loot..you know the things that dont matter in a battle royal. Yes of course it is an advantage but ur argument is the weakest shit I ever saw for deciding what console to buy. ONE GAME is the reason for you. Not even that because the real reason is you not being able to wait some months.

  127. Neo S.

    Neo S.18 days ago

    @chef goldblum "it's pure speculation" Yeah thats what leaks are.....speculation.....pls never listen to leaks because they are ALWAYS wrong. No leaks ever told the truth and CoD will NEVER make a Ps5 Warzone for profit. Cod never remastered anything or drops a title every year. Sry my "theory" is just really insane. Real life has shown I am wrong so many times right? Lets bet a $100 I can play Warzone with 120 fps before August. Deal? Bro you say you buy a Xbox because you dont have the chill to wait some months until there is a Ps5 version of warzone. Spoiler: You cant buy Xbox series X or Ps5 anyway right now and I bet as soon as you can there will be Warzone for Ps5. The argument is just childish "I want it RIGH NOW" attitude.
