  • This just makes me proud to own an Xbox Series X. So much performance for the price, can't go wrong.

  • I always say: most people need a computer anyway, so you'll probably end up saving money if you just spend a bit more on the computer and ditch the console.

    ViejunoViejuno18 時間 前
    • @Alt Acc Plenty of people, ebay, amazon, cex, games top,... Often Second hand is cheaper than digital and you still can resell them, I play new games just for few bucks. Also I keep the ones I like, and many of them are more expensive today than some years ago when I bought them.

    • Who sells there games anymore in 2021? Why would you even wanna buy them?

      Alt AccAlt Acc8 時間 前
  • The thing is that those prices on cosoles can be that "low" with that hardware because Microsoft and Sony take a percent when they sell games on their systems. Let's say they get 10$ of each game on full retail price on release, and as people get more games the more they recover for hardware and still make profit. Not to talk about paid online, subcription services, DLC, etc. For PC on the other hand you got software way cheaper and still be able to do other stuff like Linus said. Dont get me wrong Valve and other game software distributors still get their share, lower, but it's still there. Still intend on keeping my 9 years old Gaming PC at least for one more year.

    • @Turtle Fan on pc the Xbox game pass is free for almost half a year if you are willing to do some hassle. Not only that! You could do something on pc that many call a glitch (but it really isn't) to claim all the Xbox game pass games forever (no piracy). So free Xbox game pass + being able to claim those games after the pass ended. And this is not even the best deal you could get on the pc. 👀

  • it really makes me sad to see people still beating each other over the Console/PC thing. consoles are doing so great at delivering what they should deliver relative to their price tags. I have friends and family who cannot make sense of video settings in modern games. they absolutely have no idea what the hell Anti-Aliasing means and how a single toggle drastically impacts the performance of their games. so what's the point of them having a monster rig loaded with a 3080 when they can't even utilize it? IMO, the big difference is not in the machines themselves. but the difference lies in the people who are using them. in the end, it all boils down to one's knowledge about technical stuff. if you can safely overclock your HW and optimally set your games to give you every drop of FPS possible, then go for a PC. if not, then settle for a console and play without any hassles. just remember, a PC is not a gaming machine. it's far more than that. it's everything you ask it to be. but you must know how to talk to it. with the sheer amount of rendering power a 3080 gives you, you can earn back the money by freelancing with Illustrator or Blender. you can even learn Machine learning and Neural networks. hell, even mining Crypto. I mean whatever you want. put that power to some real use. and don't get mad over console prices being so cheaper than your single GPUs. remember consoles can't even run a calculator.

If there was native support across the board, there would be a chance. Although how long will the Xbox PSU last? The one in my ONE X died with very little use, current PSU in my gaming PC i purchased rather along time ago, think 8800GTX SLI era... Just a wee bit longer lifespan than the craptastic one fitted into xbox.

  • Try building the PC without used/second hand parts, it's just not going to be anywhere near possible. And the controller is just a joke. It would be more interesting to see how expensive it would be to actually match XSX performance (SSD vs SSD, CPU vs CPU, GPU vs GPU etc.) with brand new, off the shelf PC parts. PS. I'm just a gaming/tech enthusiast who sees value for all the platforms. Too old to care about any "master race" debate.. :)

    • they still earning most of the money on monetized online service? Used to be a main reason I never went with x box, can't imagine having to pay a membership fee just to get access to multiplayer.

  • To match the series x you would need all NEW comparable pc parts (amd equivalents) new ms xsx wireless controller and blu-ray drive. Not going to happen for anywhere near $500.

    Jack BurtonJack Burton2 日 前
    • @Jack Burton You said: "if you put in a blu-ray drive and a wireless controller it would not going to happen for anywhere near $500" and then you said "you wil get north of 1k".. I can't find one at msrp, I can't find one in my country for $500 bucks as well (they forgot to convert the currency so it is more like $640 in my country), and I can't find a Xbox that does not lock me out of playing online without paying $120 bucks. 🤷‍♂️

      Alt AccAlt Acc時間 前
    • @Alt Acc are you drunk!? Yes the series x is REALLY $500. If you can find a series x the msrp is $500 plus tax. No more. Unlike the new Nvidia GPUs that were a paper launch where they said, for example, the 3080 msrp was $699 but in reality it was over $800. And where the hell did I ever say a blu-ray drive costs $500!? I didn't. A blu-ray drive costs less than $50. A UHD blu-ray drive costs over $100. A SERIES X HAS A UHD BLU-RAY DRIVE, NOT A REGULAR BLU-RAY DRIVE. Again, you cannot build a new pc equivalents in hardware to the series x for under $1k.

      Jack BurtonJack Burton日 前
    • @Jack Burton nothing much, it is just that the Xbox isn't really $500 bucks, it is advertised to be but in reality it isn't that cheap. So making a pc the same as a Xbox for $800 bucks would still be acceptable. Also, where tf does a basic blue ray drive cost $500?

      Alt AccAlt Acc日 前
    • @Alt Acc ok? What does that have to do with anything I was saying? You are arguing a different point. Regardless, to match exactly what you get with series x HARDWARE you are north if $1k, not $600 to $800. And for GAMES you get a pretty damn good deal with gamepass.

      Jack BurtonJack Burton日 前
    • @Jack Burton okay, then let's say the pc is $600 - $800 bucks. Then the pc is still a better deal. Because a Xbox is $500 bucks + forced pay $120 a year. You could pay per month, but in a year that would be higher then just paying it right of the bet. So a Xbox is more like $620 bucks without games, if you want games you would need to spend a crazy amount on them. Why do you think Xbox exist? That's right. To make money. Just think logical.

  • Consoles aren't designed to generate profit. Almost every console player I know spends money to play online, and they pay subscription fees to rent games monthly. I spend on average $5 per game I purchase. I don't pay to play with friends. That's several hundred dollars per year alone. Over 7 years (if I remember the last console lifespan correctly) that's easily a great gaming PC. That doesn't include the stupid advertising on consoles. God do I HATE the Xbox One S I bought my now 4 year old son two years ago. I constantly feel like crap is being shoved in my face. My pc just fires up and we play. My son even prefers pc gaming because he sees the difference (both in FPS and the other stuff mentioned here).

    pallendapallenda3 日 前
    • @Turtle Fan it's hard to understand what you type. I am saying a 5 year old GPU for PC is about as good as brand new GPU in consoles. Both are old GPUs. And on top there is great mouse and keyboard support on PC, some types of games aren't really out on consoles because almost nobody has mouse and keyboard on console. How many console games really have great support for mouse and keyboard? I would very few if any. On PC I can just plug in a console controller and use that. PC is more versatile.

Linus falsified his lists and presented his hardware in a confusing manner hoping the average viewer would not be able to keep up. His very clear bias towards the PC community indicates that the Xbox X never really stood a chance. He owes Xbox an apology and is clearly a Microsoft shill.

  • If you can't afford a mid range/high end PC sure go for the console nothing wrong with that. But PC still it a multi use piece of hardware and until the consoles do THAT they are still inferior to a PC. Also most who build their own pc know it's going to cost more than a console but we build it ourselves and that is part of the "pc master race" appeal. When I build a PC from the ground up I build it knowing it will last through multiple console generations so I save money regardless. I also save on games since there are so many different sales on steam/GOG/etc. Other nice thing is more COD kiddies play on the consoles so that keeps them away from the PC multiplayer games.

    TechTiteTechTite4 日 前
  • Also don’t forget that it takes some hours to source out all the parts on eBay and actually building and calibrating your system. And your own time is also worth a certain amount of money. The actual task should be to pay someone else 500 dollars and make them build you a comparable system whilst still making profit for himself.

  • I don't think it is a fair fight to begin with. We don't know the actual production cost of the console units. They're discounting the machines at market and making it up in other things like subscriptions and game purchases. You pay for a computer and you pay for it. Where PC gaming has it's returns though is in it's longevity, upgradeability, modability, surplus of markets and depreciation and sales of software. Xbox is still a close platform for most users and given enough time everything and it's mother comes to the PC platform. It might need to be hacked, rebuilt or stolen but it will come... The cost of hardware though is inconsequential, and certainly when the consoles are sold at a loss and produced in a more vertical fashion.

PC's can always be built up to be more powerful.... But at what cost? Expect to spend at least a thou, if not three thou for a PC to be a gaming PC to out do consoles, and those costs are severely different. AND NEVER get a PC from DIGITAL STORM. EVER!

    • Chill bro. It is close enough. You all bitching about a tad bit more over the Xbox's price, even tho you didn't consider the $120 per year you need to pay to play online on the Xbox.

      Alt AccAlt Acc4 日 前
    • @Steven pineda obviously, but to achieve the level over the console, it's always going to cost more. It costs more even for it to reach the same balance of cost vs gaming options. Granted it also means you have less censorship that can stop you from doing what you want to do. I'm just tired of all the click bait videos that say they can build a console's worth of power for the same price. They always cop out with 'close enough' and it's really not. With the fact I got burned so bad putting thousands into a PC from Digital Storm and time after time over multiple years they never got it right to the point something bad in my life had me give up on it for a few months, they could finally blame the problem on me and so I'm stuck with it. With a game console, you simply ship it back and it's their problem till they get it right, and down the line if you got screwed, at least it was only for about 600 bucks. This PC cost me thousands and even more as I found out Digital Storm was hooking up my liquid pump to a fan controller all along with both machines and they charged me for the processor their F up burnt out. Consoles F up that hard, they'd be more liable for it and can't explain it away as something like, some hardware or another's fault. Digital Storm left a real sour taste in where PC builders have gone, and with my hands and the likes I just can't do such an all out rig on my own anymore. Also tired of the clowns who keep saying I should just build my own when I just no longer can and I don't see them all building their own cars or something else that they drive to work in or crafting their own shoes. You shouldn't have to build it yourself just to get something that works. You should get what you paid for, and Digital Storm did not accomplish, and the cost to risk ratio for gaming PC's in general as opposed to a console that a company is more liable for making work as mass assembly line units, it just feels better to largely go back to console gaming in many cases. If it doesn't work on a console, someone's ass is on the line to be liable, hardware or software. Meanwhile due to all the variable build types of a PC, companies get away with murder often blaming their mistakes on certain hardware not working with it or the other way around. Sorry for the rant, and I paid massive for a major rig. Then more thinking it couldn't keep going wrong. For the amount I paid into the PC I could've gotten multiples of every console and handhelds that were current at the time. I still need to use a PC, and trying to get the most out of my Digital Storm leftovers, but I doubt I'll ever go into such a high end rig ever again, and certainly not from Digital Storm. It still burns my ass that Linus here always seems to NEVER be a secret shopper against Digital Storm. Probably because they keep sending him free $#!+.

  • Play a real game lol no pc is going to compare to the series x at even a 1400 dollar budget. How do i know. I have both. The xbox will run 120 fps with Ray tracing in 4k. You'll need a newest gen gpu to compare. Which is 800 plus dollars alone. Play cyberpunk on that pc see what happens. Before all the pc ball lickers chime in, i play both so chill the f out

      ArcaneVoidArcaneVoid2 日 前
    • @ArcaneVoid because i play both and paid for both. I have first hand experience with both. I know what both will do. 😂😂😂 you got triggered and said that im wrong to make you feel better about a 1060 gpu. You're hating on series x that brings unbelievable performance for the price. When a pc twice as much wont touch it.

  • Pretty bad games for performance testing,xbox is locked at 60 fps while your PC just cant run any higher,put a more demanding game like cyberpunk and you will see more than twice the difference in performance if not more,just a graphics card alone to run such games on PC cost more than xbox.

    • @Alt Acc I have a system with 3900x and 5700xt which is slightly worser than 2070 super,mp 5 corsair ssd and 64g of ram,and i still have drops to 50-55 fps while playing cyberpunk at 1080p ultra settings,so no,you wont get 68 average fps with 1070,more like 28 average fps.

      Mihhail NevermindMihhail Nevermind2 日 前
    • @Mihhail Nevermind yeah, the get props, but there is still no reason to buy a console over a pc if you want a better gaming experience, witch is quite disappointing. With the system they build it is more like AVG 68fps and 1% lows 40fps. But OK.

      Alt AccAlt Acc2 日 前
    • @Alt Acc Xbox lacks any visual enchantements like sharpness,thats is true....And even tough im not a big fan of consoles,you have to give them a credit,you wont find anything that comes even close to their performance for that price in demanding titles.....Lets say you you playe cyberpunk without 4k,you would get solid 60 fps with ocassional 5 frps drops,with the system they build,while playing in 1080p you would be lucky if you get 35-40 fps in limited spaces and less than 30 in wide open areas with lots of objects.

  • Bias as hell, you're literally playing Xbox One X games, none of these games has even been optimised for Series X. You should have played The Medium or Gears 5, but the true difference will be with true next gen games and new engines like Unreal Engine 5, this generation hasn't even truly started yet.

But still there aren’t any launch titles and if u wanna play fable 3 on game pass for the next 3 or 4 years then console is perfect!

    • @Turtle Fan , online play as in Xbox Live Gold which is $60/yr (for now). Over 5-7 years that's $300-$420 on top of the $500 you pay for the system. $800-$920 is a fairer comparison for anyone interested in playing games online.

    • @Christian Bateman sorry for interrupting the conversation, but the Xbox controllers aren't really $50. They just make you pay that if you want to buy a separate spare one. 😔 On the Xbox K&M are not that great compatible with most games, yet another Xbox con. 😔 So just get a 20$ pc m&k *but* just knock notting of the price for the Xbox. then just get the *more expensive* motherboard, but keep the *cheaper* ram. Trust me, it is fast enough, I work in IT. Calculate it for me, if it is *under* $800 bucks then there is no way I am getting a Xbox. If it's over, then maybe. Why 800? The forced costs you need to pay when buying a Xbox.. 👍💯

      Jan Peter rJan Peter r2 日 前
    • @Alt Acc not sure you’ll get comparable speeds using 25$ ram... same with the board needs to have similar spec, on board wifi, pcie 4.0 lanes ect.. and as for the controller it’s a comparable list, so knock 50 off for Xbox and use a kb&m with that 🤷‍♂️

      Christian BatemanChristian Bateman3 日 前
    • @Christian Bateman You could get cheaper ram for $25 (ecc server ram), motherboard can be $40 HP Z one. The controller is optional. You can also go to a shop to buy pc parts. So now you have all new parts vs a refurbished Xbox. Btw, you calculate what you will safe in 3 years, but it is better to do it in 7 (a whole generation).

      Alt AccAlt Acc4 日 前
    • @Alt Acc 300 for leftovers? 16gb ram $70 Case $30 Fans $20 Cpu cooler $30 Motherboard $70 Power supply $40 1tb ssd nvme $80 Controller $50 $390 And that’s if you go get cheapo parts and then factor in you have to wait for all this to be delivered then you have to build it.. Xbox - go to store, buy it, take it home and play.

  • Idk man, If a gamer and already in the PC ecosystem, you can just take your case/cooling and motherboard/ power supply, that's obviously going to be better. If you're just looking to unbox something kick ass for ease of use, console all day. Big take away for me is, if you're a gamer, and have to keep it well under a grand, You can Frankenstein a budget rig or just try to grab a next gen console. It's just personal preference.

  • So, if you try and match the spec of a series X with new hardware and an exact match in memory, SSD capacity, SSD speed and Ray Tracing with HDMI 2.1 and grab a series s/x controller. You’d be looking at approx 1k+. I.E. Xbox is better value for money than a true equivalent PC. Also, Xbox can run emulation in developer mode, and comes with Edge installed, the bing app is great also. I used to think I would never go back to consoles. But the Xbox Series X changed that!!

Even if it's extremely difficult to get yours hands on the system because so many people are buying them just to sell them for hundreds of dollars more, the MSRP is only the price the producer is selling it for not whatever second hand sellers are trying to get it off for. The distinction matters in terms of economics
