PlayStation and Xbox have been competing for years, with Sony’s consoles usually coming out on top, especially when Microsoft dropped the ball with the disappointing Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 simply had better games, whereas the Xbox One was trying to be an all-in-one entertainment system, which pushed many fans away.
However, some Xbox fans, like myself, stayed put despite the Xbox One being the inferior console and missed out on many blockbuster games like Marvel’s Spiderman, God Of War (2018) and Horizon: Zero Dawn to name a few. That was the case for one gamer in particular, who recently bought their first PlayStation console, the PS5, after 20 years of supporting Xbox, and they’re blown away by what they were missing out on.
Long-time Xbox fan, triddell24, shared the news that they’d finally crossed over to the rival platform, saying: “Been with Xbox for over 20 years. Just got a PS5 and holy crap I had no idea what I was missing.”
They went on to say they’d owned all Xbox iterations, from the original Xbox to the recent Xbox Series X, but “always wanted to play the PS exclusives” and grabbed a PS5.
“I finally pulled the trigger and got a PS5. I’ve been loving it. I’ve sampled God of War: Ragnarok, GoT, Spidey, Horizon, and Last of Us. Uncharted is in the queue. My biggest wow came from something I never expected, the controller. IT FELT LIKE I UNSHEATHED A KATANA!”
Other PlayStation viewers warmly welcomed them into the community and provided a heap of suggestions for other great exclusives to try, like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and of course, Bloodborne.
Competition between Xbox and PlayStation is still as prominent as it ever was, with PlayStation continuing to push out exclusive content, even delaying PC ports to retain exclusivity. Xbox could bounce back though, as it’s currently very close to closing its Activision Blizzard deal, and has also bolstered its line-up of exclusive games by acquiring Bethesda, with Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI becoming Xbox-only games.
Meanwhile, Nintendo is doing its own thing, happily releasing generation-defining games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. They seemingly couldn’t care less about competing with other consoles, so good for them.
