This year has been somewhat chaotic and it is that in addition to the situation experienced by the pandemic, the arrival of this new generation of consoles has been one of the strangest. It took us a long time to see both how the consoles look and what their specs, not to mention their price and launch date. Despite this, no one can deny the great success of both consoles at launch, achieving high sales figures and even leaving them without stock.
But despite all this success, there are still some players who wonder if it is really worth it. After all, even though we already have analyzed PlayStation 5 and we even made a Xbox Series X full review, there are questions that are more complex to answer. Like, for example, if our pocket can currently afford to take that leap or if the games available really justify us wanting to make the switch.
Reasons to make the jump to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S worth it
One of the reasons you may want to consider taking the leap is precisely the great visual enhancement of the games. compared to the previous generation. Well, we recently mentioned that the current generation of consoles is more about the player experience than taking the plunge when it comes to graphics. However, it is undeniable that the games present some more than striking improvements.
We are facing a generation where loading times are almost non-existent and where the colors and the cities seem more alive than ever and where the console doesn’t really have to put in too much effort to be able to handle it all with quality. In addition, we have the ability to improve titles with its free updates and, in the case of Xbox, even enjoy games from past generations thanks to its backward compatibility. So why not take this leap?
Another aspect that can put you back is, perhaps, the price of new consoles. But let’s face it, do you really think both consoles will soon drop their prices? If we review what has happened with past generations, we know full well that these will not drop their price for a few years, so if that’s what makes you back down, maybe it’s a point to think that maybe throw away Now, s aving isn’t such a bad plan.
Another point that, above all, catches the attention of the Xbox Series X and S is the possibility of access a complete catalog with Xbox Games Pass. Launch games, exclusive to the company itself and even some titles with a little more time, but which are still great successes.
Obviously, And what about the PlayStation 5? It’s not far either, since we not only have the titles present in PS Plus and PS Plus Collection, but PS Now presents us with a large catalog of games that will give us long hours of play. So if the problem is of not having enough games, the solution is more than clear.
The reasons that brought us back in this purchase
Ok it is true that we have several points which can be taken as clear. But there are also points that make us step back a bit and that make us think that it’s not really worth taking the plunge today. After all, What games do we really have at launch? In the case of the Xbox Series X, at the moment we don’t have any games that tell us we can’t enjoy it on the previous generation consoles while, in the case of the PlayStation 5, the only title which we can exclusively enjoy is Demon’s Souls. And while you could say it’s a great game, is it enough to justify the expense?
Another of the big doubts that can arise is that right now, it may not be the best time to make this expense. We are facing a critical situation in which we have so many doubts, Isn’t it better to wait? After all, as we noted, we don’t have a lot of titles that we couldn’t enjoy on consoles of past generations, so there aren’t many reasons why we can’t wait a little longer. long time.
Finally,Is there really a game that takes full advantage of the console currently? Very recently, as we have verified in past generations, it is over time that gamers can finally find a work that takes full advantage of the console. Either by taking advantage of the PS5 DualSense controller as unique features of the new Microsoft console.
