It’s been a bit over 8 months since the latest generation of console hardware has hit the shelves. I give my honest thoughts and real world experience with the two systems.

Now all I need to do is find one for MSRP
Yup, the true test 💪
I just got the All Access Series X from GameStops website (US), and there was no Queue, so if you’re cool with the monthly plan thing (you can pay off early/immediately btw) then try your luck there!
Follow wario64 on Twitter and put alerts on. I just got an Xbox today for retail at Best Buy. Supposedly there will be more restocks this week. He posts a bunch of other stuff but just pay attention
@BurntDice I got mine today as well 🥂
Got the PS5, not interested in the Xbox, already have a ton of ps4 games, so it was a no brainer for me
PS5 is great! I’m happy I own one.
@Tefty Me too! It does have weird glitches every once in a while, and the storage is kind of a let down. Did you get the two new controllers?
Not yet. Probably gonna grab the black controller soon.
I’ve had glitches too. I didn’t deep dive into them for the vid because I feel like the majority, if not all, will be ironed out by the end of the year. And for the most part it’s been stable for me.
@Tefty I hope so!!
I’m getting both
A true gamer
I have both and the only reason I really get on the PS5 is for exclusives. Gamepass and quick resume are just so nice to have and I miss them on PS5
Yep, the Sony exclusives are too good to pass up. But I typically play everything else (console wise) on the Series X.
@Tefty the appearance of the PS5 also looked much better for me once I got some of DBrands black plates. Went from disliking it to liking it
Great overview, Teft! I think the last time we chatted I mentioned to you and Whopper I was able to get 4 for friends and family. Now I’m currently at 12 happy MSRP folks, I’m hoping for a special edition PS5 color for myself one of these days.
Hey itsuki! 👋 That’s awesome! You must be the hero of your fam 🤣
And yes, a black PS5 would be nice. Or an Elden Ring special edition console 👀
LOL yeah, lots of thank yous and IOU lunch/dinner.
OH Elden Ring would be amazing! I can imagine it being some sort of dark slate color.
Hope you and Meems are doing well! I still have to watch your guys’ Disneyland vid. lol
I’ll get both in 2075 when they actually sell them in a store
Ooooof … it might actually go into 2023 with the semi-conductor shortage 😰
I have both but I think I play the x way more. Gamepass just gets me everytime.
Initially due to availability I was only able to get the series x. But now gamepass and backwards compatibility has won me over. You just can’t beat that.
Yup. Unbeatable value. However, when a killer sony exclusive drops…. 😬
@Tefty worst opinion yet.
not sure if i want either tbh but it is nice to know the difference between the two a bit better just in case
Sticking with PC as your main platform? Or not upgrading at all for now?
I went Series X at launch, I personally like the Xbox ecosystem more. But will do what I always do and grab a PS5 a couple years down the road and have all the exclusives to play for cheap.
Honestly, if you can wait, then this is 100% the move. Probably have a smaller PS5 to choose from by then, too.
@Tefty Oh for sure. I will go digital and then myself, my wife, and my kids can all use the PS5 to play all the exclusives.
Ps5 disc version. Exclusives all the way. I have my pc for the rest.
Always an excellent choice. Did you get GamePass for PC?
@Tefty I’ve had gamepass on pc. But after I played the games I wanted to play. I canceled it. And that’s a thing I like with those kind of services. But at the time, It wasn’t that many games that were of interest for me. But you can’t deny the value in it.
@Michael Olsson I’m having the same experience with game pass on my series x. Kinda wished I waited for the ps5 to be frank.
as a day1 ps5 owner who almost went to jail getting my preorder all i can say was …. worth it. it does everything i could ask for and now that its getting discord the only difference imo is gamepass… andni have a pc so if theres something i really wanna play ill do it there
Oooo I forgot about the Discord announcement! And agreed, PS5 plus PC is a solid combo.
@Tefty now if only nintendo will go ahead and drop that metroid prime 4… which we better see some streams of!
Care to explain how you almost ended up in jail?
@Frank Gallagher there were 7 ps5s available for preorder, i was number 3. about 9hours into the wait someone about 20th in line decided he was going to cut to number 1 after about 10minutes of me defending the 7 spots the gamestop manager called the cops before a fight broke out.
Still waiting till PS5s are easier to get. Thanks for the review of both systems advantages.
Hey Jagyth! 👋 thx for watching 💖
Got series x bc I already was in ecosystem, but PS5 is super appealing…hope to get it once they’re widely available. Oh also wanted to point out that the bumpers on the series x controller are just a little more clicky/take less to make them activate than the one controller. Small improvement but much appreciated with souls-likes.
Yeah you’re right, the bumpers do feel better!
I have a the PS5 and the exclusives has really entertained me and kept me occupied since I got it. It’s amazing overall. I can’t speak for Xbox but Sony has been murdering the exclusivity game
Halo has entered the chat
Xbox’s 30 games has entered the chat
8 months later and I still can’t find a PS5 anywhere (except the scalpers who sells them for $1K) 🤦🏻♂️
Sooo true and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna let up until 2022 or 2023 😞
I got the series x because all my friends are on xbox but with all the gamepass stuff I can just play a new game whenever I want and its great.
Wait, what, the Teft lives again on the You Tubes. ?😮😮😮
Once every blue moon 🤣🤣
I have the PS5. Lost it, due to a lightning strike. Just got the replacement back last week (not sure if they refurbished mine or sent a new/refurbished one, but it has a new S/N). No issues with my batteries in the controller. I got it because that was the system I started with, back with the PS1. I have always had great experiences with the PS systems (including the clamshell PS3, which just recently died on me).
Overall, I have been happy with the system. It is incredible how much faster it is. Since I had to revert back to PS4 for a few weeks…man, games started to feel unplayable.
Side note: I bought dbrand Dark Plates to give it an all-black look, too help it seamlessly fade into my entertainment center (which can support its height). I also picked up a red and the all-black Sony controllers to give it a little charm.
Ouch! I’m always terrified of lighting strikes with all me gear 😬
Glad to hear you got a replacement! And yes, the PS4 feels ancient in comparison. Really happy that we’re finally in this generation of game consoles 🙌🙌
@Tefty I think the strike came up through my internet or DirecTV cable, then back-fed throughout the house. My living room entertainment center (biggest tv in the house, DTV box, modem, network switch, router, surround sound, Nintendo Switch Dock and thermal label printer) was apparently ground zero. 😭😭😭
They make whole-home protectors, which I will probably invest in.
But I feel like console gaming is in a very good place right now.
Good lord! That really is my nightmare. Sorry you had to go through that 😭
Also funny enough you can also play ps3/ps2 and og playstation games on the xbox. Along with other old consoles since the xbox can run emulators if you download devmode.
I saw that! I was really surprised 🤣
Ps5 always sold out in Ireland still. Madness.
Also for destiny if you play on xbox you dont have to pay for any of the expansions since they are included in gamepass.
Not sure how long that’s gonna last …and if Witch Queen will be in it in the future 🤔
Awesome video teft!
Some of my favorite games are PlayStation exclusives so I will always pick PlayStation but damn that gamepass is always calling my name
Gamepass is a great deal no one should pass up but if it came down to one or the other PlayStation jus gots what I want🤷🏼♂️
I went for the series x, the only risk you take with the series x is the 1st party games still need to prove themselves whereas ps5 exclusives you can pretty much take it to the bank that they will be great. The video sums the pros and cons of each system up pretty well without really mentioning things like FPS boost, quick resume and smart delivery. No matter which console you choose you will 100% get you money’s worth and both will have a suite of great games for you to play, just enjoy both and don’t get caught up in any petty tribalism between the two 😃
I just got mine today!!!
Congrats! Which system?
Great video here commenting to help out the algorithm. I all for the Sony Exclusives and as i get older i dont need to play the newest game day one anymore, I will prolly get game pass for my PC since most of the xbox games will come on PC eventually, But I will say the Game Pass is an amazing deal if you cant fork out 70 bucks a game for the sony games. Who knows i might get both one day but a PS5 will be first. I hope i can get one before Ragnorak releases.
Let’s switch it up if PS5 has every exclusives on the PC and Xbox does not then would you get a Xbox instead for the exclusives?
My Series X with Gamepass is the best 👌
Have a Series S in the bedroom 👌
Ideally I want both, but the one I want first would be PS5. I need Demon’s Souls in my life dang it!
Also Destiny 2 and its expansions are on Xbox Game pass Day 1
Even the xCloud is insane. I was able to pull up D2 on my phone using a controller and do basic stuff while my wife was driving her part of our road trip.
I’ve always been an Xbox player, so I went with the Series S (and it was free😂). I’ve got it right next to my pc and bounce back and forth depending if I’m going solo or with the buds. GP Ultimate has me playing all sorts of games, which is nice to have when D2 is in a slow period.
For the Destiny community…. Game Pass includes the expansions (Forsaken, Shadowkeep and Beyond Light)!!
Gotta say, your color-grading and lighting are very pleasing. It makes me want to watch your vids.
Loved the Stadia laugh.
I love Bethesda games too much. Got me a Series X.
I bought the series x because
1. The walmart I went to only had 2 left on the shelves, and I haven’t seen any since then.
2. I’ve been an Xbox player since ’08. (My parents bought a 360 due to the ps3 still being $600.)
3. I’m excited for where xbox is headed in the future. Sony has kind of lost it for me due to them wanting to focus on AAA titles instead of taking risks with new IP’s like xbox is.
Tefty you forgot to mention the 120 frames pvp experience in destiny. Maybe still worse than pc, but so much better than last gen. Great vid man 👍
Let me guess, they both have pros and cons and it comes down to personal preference.
I gotten both but I play the XGP my PS is for friends
Playstation 5 all day. I can play all the games on Xbox plua have spiderman, demon souls, and rachet and klank ect … when I had my Xbox there was alot of games on game pass to play but barely any at all that I wanted to actually play lol
I just finally got an xbox series x from walmart a week ago and im having a ton of fun with my new console. I chose to get an xbox because all my friends are on xbox too
Current usage in my home:
Xbox SX: 99%
Game Pass was a gamechanger.
I went with the series x and game pass. It’s a solid experience but I’ll still get a ps5 for Naughty Dog’s games. I skipped the ps4 gen and inherently missed alot of quality exclusives. But why is there still no 1440p support on ps5?
Good comparison. I will go both eventually for the exclusives, but at launch, went for series X. Prefer having an Elite controller, the UI, game pass and more friends on Xbox. Also don’t really like the PS5 design. Maybe by the time there is loads of top tier exclusives for PS, a tweaked design will be out
