For reference, I've had an Xbox Series S for two years now. Some of the games I play there have a very low userbase and I'd expect them to have a bigger userbase on PS5 where most Europeans play.

Things that draw me back are lack of exclusives, shitty controller and possible PS5 slim coming soon.

I also have lots of digital games in PS4 and I'd like to play them on the 5 improved, but 450-550€ seems a lot of money...

Buying Series X is out of discussion because I already have the S so it'd be kinda dumb...

Note: when I say low userbase, what I really mean is that 99% of online players are britbongs innit

OK. Wait until you can buy a new PS5 for less or second-hand?

You have two options, the gay station, or the nig box x, which would you prefer? Something that will get used for X amount of years and then forgotten? Or something that will last you for either ever or more than a few years?

I don't think you can pirate games on the PS5 so no, don't get it. Unless you want to be shilling dozens of dollars for every new game you buy.
It's the gay station, you get fucked not them, you gotta pick something that gives you options like a computer does. Can't play Call of duty because you have a apple slice GPU and A potato monitor? You can play checkers or browser games!

PS5 and PC are reserved for real G's. Xbox is for mindless consoomers. Look deep within your heart and ask yourself do you deserve to play on the platform for G's, or the platform for sheep?
In both consoles you have to pay for the online, I honestly wish they go bankrupt some day

Prebuilt PCs are a bit of a rip off but it's still better than a console. Ah but if you don't know how to pirate games safely then yeah idk too bad bro, buying games is very expensive that's the real rip off.

In the process of selling my Xbox Series X and returning my 4k tv. Was such a waste. Have to cut my losses on the Xbox and move on. Not cut out for gaming.

If you like the exclusives on the PlayStation then go right ahead. I bought my Series X used in fantastic condition from Ebay for about Β£100 less than retail. Some PS5 owners say they regret purchasing the new-gen console and should have stuck with their PS4, and others are ecstatic to play the newly released exclusives.

If you're already paying X-box subscription, then just stop paying that and get Ps plus. You should throw your X-box in the dump if I'm being honest.
I think Series consoles can be pirated to play lots of retro games, if I learned how to do it it'd be very cool, I could however still sell the PS4 since I won't need it anymore

For now I think I'll wait then, the exclusives they have released don't attract me much, I was gonna buy one for being more competitive at certain niche games but 500 bucks just for that doesn't seem worth it to me, should just save the money tbh

I got a ps5, got my free 15 games, overall happy about it and the controllers are the best in this gen, for NT ppl.
Plus Sony and Nintendo usually have the most exclusives and will get many ps1-2-3 titles that otherwise you would need a fortune to play a good non bugged version of them.

Most of games that come with PS Plus collection I already played them, and the Xbox controller is better than Playstation controllers imo. The classic playstation titles most of them are from PS Now streaming and my connection is not very good. I would buy just to play my PS4 titles in 4k 60 fps without loading screens

no I have 7-8 controllers that have broken from ps2 to ps4 and also my psp, and I know people that still have functioning xbox 360 controllers today. I've also heard some people feel uncomfortable because the Dualsense is very big for the hands

Dad paid a guy to assemble PC for me it was cheap
I had to do budgeting and took some risk but in the end it saved some money

mistake was buying used monitor
big win was buying unused graphic card from retail (risky)

No just stick to the PC, sold my PS4 in May 22 for 100€, only game(s) I played on that console we're Bloodborne & Persona 5 Royal. Sony also removed USB savescumming, you now have to upload your savefiles into their PSN Cloud which of course costs money, that was very important for me, cuz I used that feature to practice the bosses :/

I cancelled the 350€ buy because I didnt trust it, ended up buying it for 450€ from official Amazon still worth it
If it's from Amazon I would think you would be able to give full refund if it was a scam but idk I never got scammed online.
