Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X - spoRv - 2020-03-19

Specs were announced during these days... I read something about, and they seem both great consoles.

Even if my kids have PS4, I decided to wait for the PS5, due to the lack of UHD-BD player - that is present in both 9th gen consoles (as well as current Xbox).

So, in a way, it could be a nice deal - a gaming machine with an UHD-BD player included.

Opinions?

As an Xbox One X and Game Pass Ultimate owner it's the Series X from day one for me. Cyberpunk 2077 will get an automatic upgrade to the Series X version as soon as it's available for free. Then there's the complete backwards compatibility with all the games I have on my Xbox One X including all the BC 360 and OG Xbox games. And if that wasn't enough they've only gone and added SDR to HDR conversion for all games.

I've got a PS4 and a Playstation Plus subscription.
Also I've got the Xbox One X, but no Gaming Pass for that.

But I think I'll wait some month in hope for a PS5 pro release. Or a slim version...
Also the new Xbox has to wait...
This time I am not so eager to get a new console.

PS5 was what I was waiting for. I got a ps4 slim only for rdr2 and a black friday sale.

But the lack of rumored backward compatibility for 1-3 means I'm back to thinking I'll get one if they drop low enough in price or only if there's a game I really REALLY want.

PS3 is still my main BD player. I play some games on ps4 and it runs faster but the UI is far lesser compared to the PS3 interface.

I think PS3 backward compatibility is something we never will see on any upcoming Playstation.
Because the differences in processor architecture for the cpu.

My goodness, it's the tenth generation already? I'm getting old.
