Yeah, gaming on a console sucks when you can't use God Mode and have to actually complete the tasks outlined in levels.

There's console mode (i.e. God Mode) and cheat codes in consoles also.

Why does it bother you so much that I have fun my own way? How does it hurt you?

I mainly don't like the slower navigation and the 32 inch TV 10 feet away and we don't have space for something bigger.

Pinball FX was unplayable because of a delay between pressing the buttons and the flipper. And it's tiny on the screen.

Continuously? Pretty sure that's the only time I said anything about it, unless you count 'liking' someone else's post. Or maybe you're thinking of someone else.

If this is your first time saying it, then it's on me, there's one poster who's always bringing it up and assumed it was on you.

Iíve mentioned at a couple times. Not harping on you though. You just deprive yourself of satisfaction the first time. That and they typically disable achievements. After youíve finished the game, cheats are awesome.

You only have a 32 inch TV?

I watch most of the stuff on my phone I haven't used that TV in ages.


The thing with cheats is that I would spend zero time gaming. With cheats I spend thousand of times gaming. I get to game, period.

See if I don’t have a lot of time (and with two kids that’s often) and I’m playing a Game Pass game, I put it on easy or story mode. Still a little challenge. Still get achievements.

I can't beat games WITH the cheats. Currently stuck in Dead Space towards the beginning right after the claw because I can't find what it wants me to do (and I even used the map tracking).

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

I set up my Xbox controller today. I like the feel of it. The back is more textured than the DualSense controller. The d pad being on the bottom and the left stick on the top is going to take some time for me to get used to since I’ve been almost exclusively PlayStation the past five years. The Xbox controller is very similar to my Switch Pro controller, but I hardly ever use my Switch.

The Xbox controller is far superior to the PS5 controller. The only thing I think the PS5 does better is the vibration function. I always turn the Xbox vibration off because it’s useless.

The Xbox controller buttons feel better. The stick placement is better. It fits in your hands better. The triggers are miles ahead and it doesn’t have (or need) the pointless touch pad.

Just my opinion. I love my PS5 but it comes in last in terms of playtime after my Xbox and Switch.

I agree with all your points except the vibration. I have never had an issue with it or thought it felt much different than my PS controllers.

If it is a multi-console game, I always choose the Xbox version just because of the controller. Always have since its inception. I loved The Duke!

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Is the only way to troubleshoot controller lag to have a more direct line of vision to the console or use wired?

That's almost disingenuous. The PS5 Dual Sense controller has force feedback, so it definitely feels different than just a rumble -- that's not an opinion, it's a fact.

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Yeah, the force feedback and especially the triggers on the PS5 pads are vastly superior to the Xbox controllers. The Xbox controller is my go to for FPS games, but I've gotten decent enough with the PS5 one finally.

I love the feel of the XBOX Elite. Definitely use it for FPS. I do like the DualSense with that speaker and hear actual stuff through the controller. That took me by surprise, in a cool way. But, without those grips I’d hate to use it more.

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Certainly there is plenty to like in the Xbox controller and their triggers are really great (especially in the expensive Elite ones).
I feel plenty comfortable with either controller, but I can see those with big hands might certainly prefer the Xbox one. I just feel like the force feedback is a huge leap forward in technology that the Xbox missed out on.
The speaker is a no big deal gimmick to me.

Speaker is eerie. First time it came on I was petting a cat in Hogwarts Legacy. It was so cool. If it’s a gimmick it worked on me. Xbox certainly doesn’t have.

I wish Xbox would do something like Sony did with DualSense.

Well, I was just detailing my experience with them both. I guess I didn't pay that much attention to the vibration, force feedback, rumble, etc. It was never noticeable enough to me to immediately feel one was vastly superior to another.

I was going to make a joke about my hands being not as sensitive but thought it may come across as being a little too...ahem...personal.

Plus, I was basing it on my experience with PS4 and below. I don't have a PS5 yet. My bad.

Ah then sure. the PS4 rumble and the Xbox Series X controller rumble are essentially identical.

Feature wise, the PS5 controller is amazing. Comfort wise, it is awful. I hate it. Team Xbox all the way with regard to controllers.

Once you all stop fighting over which gamepad is better, tips on gamepad lag?
