Why people are discounting the option to purchase a PS4 or Xbox One or Switch if price matters

Almost no one liked SLI until it was practically dead. Now a major company pulls its support and everyone suddenly wants SLI for its potential. Meh.

If I was starting fresh I would probably go with MS, also because game pass is cross plattform and really seems like a good deal. But I've been invested in the PS ecosystem and especially PS+ since the start and have a massive backlog. So I'll just stick to PS.

I think they're basically going for DX12 and Vulkan multi-GPU which from what I understand don't even require the SLI interface. Development on that end has been really slow so far - I don't really know of those many engines that have it built in.

18:27 another unspoken cost is displays!!! If you're using a 1440p 60hz monitor or a 1080p monitor because it's good enough for console the next gen you also now gotta buy a 120hz 1440p monitor at minimum, here in Canada that's a $300+ of an investment on top of the console, controllers, games and that's why xbox is going to slam sony in this release unless sony has something up their sleeve

I remember back in the day, playing Crisis3 in 4K 60fps High settings with four 780-Tis in quad SLI, laughing at videos (by detractors of SLI) speculating about what year in the distant future will it be possible to run Crisis in 4K 60fps? Those were the days. Now the haters will claim it never worked, and the glory of SLI will be forgotten, like tears in the rain. Time to die.

I'm still gaming in SLI with 2 - 1080 Ti's. Excellent scaling with both cards in Metro: Exodus and Red Dead 2, though at times I need Nvidia Inspector for some help. That said, I can't get it to work on DX12, with the exception being Battlefield 1.

All my friends are getting older and one of my friends is about to have his first kid. He’s always had PS2, PS3 and PS4. Has never owned a Xbox. Him being tight on money, saving for a baby, has convinced him to buy his first Xbox. The whole $35/$25 a month is a bargain. Personally for me when it comes to Pricing I think Microsoft wins hands down. They have a set price for anyone. Buy the series X $500. That too expensive get the Series S, $300. That too expensive get the all access series X, $35 a month. That still too expensive, $25. Month. Don’t want to spend $70 on a game. Microsoft drops all first party games on gamepass day 1. Yes I do agree that best Value for THE CONSOLE ITSELF will have to go to Sony and their digital edition. But BEST OVERALL VALUE hands down goes to Microsoft.

Just so you know, you don't have wait for reviews for the new Assassin's Creed game - it's going to be on game pass. I'm not even an xbox fangirl and I preordered a series x today because the value is too good, especially after they just purchased bethesda et al. With EA titles on gamepass, Microsoft actually has all the western rpgs except for Cyperpunk 2077 through gamepass going forward now. Xbox has a real identity again, just like the 360 days. This generation is going to be very interesting, but I think the best long-term future is with Microsoft this time.

I don’t think it is so much winner and loser as much as it is just different and time-dependent. Preference for OS and UI between Sony and Microsoft can influence the decision if you want a blu-ray and media player. Then the digital and the S have their respective economy places. Lastly, PlayStation is coming off a generational title/ip victory and will sell well. But Xbox has some tricky new cards up its sleeve for the future. All mostly just different.

"Xbox won easily" is trash. Game pass is hella consumer friendly but what games is microsoft coming out with that makes you say hell yeah I want an xbox (maybe like 5 games tops). It maybe cheaper but if you buy it and no one plays it because it has no games that are inciting you'll have another Wii U on your hands.

Pitting people against each other within your company to drive innovation is also known as ... literally how and why Sears died. Literally. Also, Apple has never respected their customers. Their motto has always been "Fuck you, I know best. You want the best experience? It's the one I say you want. You learn to like what I tell you to like, and you'll have the time of your life." That's why choice is limited, and everything is "their way", and it's all about ecosystems and control. Because that drives profit in a cult kind of way.

Dear Linus, Yes, the $399 Discless PS5 is a better deal than the Series S, however, you can literally lease an Xbox Series X for a relative pittance a month and get the entire Xbox and all online services that works out to be cheaper than the PS5 can offer. Not too mention backwards compatibility across the entire board from games to controllers.

Hard disagree on the digital PS5 being big value. It’s a trap. People see the $100 cheaper price tag and get hooked... and then you’re stuck in a strictly digital ecosystem. You’re forced to pay whatever prices Sony seems to sell them on their store. You can save $100 off buying used games within a year. There are always physical game sales going on that would be awful to miss out on. Just this past year I picked up Horizon Zero Dawn Complete and God of War off Amazon for $10 each when they were still $30 on the PS store. For that $100, you completely give up all opportunity to get physical sales and selling your own games. It’s a trap in disguise.

I think the Xbox Series S makes a lot more sense than Linus seems to give it credit for around the @11:45 mark. I just preordered the X, but I’m also anticipating having an HDMI 2.1 integrated display to run 4K 120 FPS. That’s expensive hardware though. Any HDMI 2.1 display runs more than the console itself does at the moment. I think it’s perfectly reasonable for people to be very happy with 2k resolution at next gen speeds, and for only $300. The 4K 120 FPS market for console hardly exists since they refuse to use DisplayPort

I think regarding the "worst" console xbox one. Because I know some people with 15 mbps download speed. And they're middle income. So everyone middle income and below won't have fast enough internet to purely stream. Thus xbox series S is perfect for those demographics.

It's easier (probably more efficient?) to include two silicon chips on a single motherboard than connecting two graphics cards with an SLI bridge. It's like connecting two motherboards with a patch cord to improve performance. There's a reason why server grade motherboards use 2 CPUs on a single motherboard rather than connecting two motherboards with some measly connector standard.

Short (not) answer The Sole Reason that Sli/Nvlink/Crossfire was introduced was because at the time a single gpu was not usually powerful enough so now you can have 2x the power (NO VRAM DOES NOT STACK only bandwith and Gpu core perf) Now a single modern gpu Is powerful enough to handle most games and game developers are abandoning sli support so sli for gaming is pointless but it sill has pourpouses in a Professional use case. but simply sli is not needed anymore
