Are you overall satisfied with the next-gen consoles? (XBSX, PS5, Switch?)

i mean is it way better than previous? i like it. it is much faster, quick resume for XBSX is great. i don't think too much else is noticeable. i don't know if it is leagues better than One, but so far i think i am kinda pleased.

You?

*wasn't sure if i should have included Switch

Re: Are you overall satisfied with the next-gen consoles? (XBSX, PS5, Switch?)

I'm happy enough with both the Xbox Series X and the PS5, even if the Pro/One X revisions mid-gen diminished how much of an improvement they feel like. There's an element of "the same but better" where they feel iterative rather than transformative. The near-elimination of load times is a godsend. Raytracing is neat, if not as mindblowing as I thought it might be. I'm still not wild about playing the DualSense for long sessions, and too few games really take advantage of the advanced haptics, but it's still one of the most next-gen-y aspects about either of these consoles. I think it was a mistake for Sony to adopt a completely new UX for the PS5, stripping out a bunch of features and making it more cumbersome to use. The Series X allowing for multiple games to be suspended is probably my favorite new feature on that console.

So, yeah: I'd say that I'm happy with both, but neither is a gamechanger (pun intended?), at least not yet.

The Switch is feeling awfully long in the tooth right now. I'm optimistic about 2022 being a banner year, despite the relic-from-another-era tech, which'll be nice since it's basically a nostalgia box for me right now. Aside from Metroid Dread, everything I've played solo over the past couple of years and the few games in my backlog have all been ports/remasters.

Substantially faster load times, quick resumes and 60 fps on almost everything. I'm very happy with it from a technological standpoint.

Just need more appealing games.

I'd sure be happy if I could FIND a PS5

Really happy with the PS5 controller (when properly implemented) and with the XSX quick resume and Game Pass service (which is also on the XO to be fair).
Kind of hate both systems UI but especially the XSX which is ugly, intrusive and unintuitive.

As a PC gamer there isn't any incentive or reason to get consoles... nearly all of the good games get ported to PC these days.

Re: Are you overall satisfied with the next-gen consoles? (XBSX, PS5, Switch?)

The lack of general availability of both PS5 and XBX have all but mostly killed my love for gaming - or rather being in the latest generation crowd. That said, I bought my first Switch last year and I love it. And just about all of the games I have been interested in are available on the PS4 and XBox Series S, and I have both of those. So thatís enough for me.

I love my PS5 especially the new controller. It makes a huge difference playing games compared to the previous Sony consoles.

Snagged my PS5 upon release and love it. The 4K capabilities are also top notch, just waiting for it to finally stream ATMOS and get a DV update and it'll be my primary player.

Switch is a WiiU greatest Hits console so not really a fan. It has a few games I enjoyed, but I'm not building a library on this one anytime soon.

I only play Halo on the Series X and quick resume hasn't worked once, so that's a bust.

Dual Sense and clean interface on PS5 are solid. The Dual Sense is probably my favorite controller since the 360.

Yup!

I've only had my PS5 for 2-weeks but I am enjoying it thus far. Looking forward to more PS5 Exclusives being released.

I've had my Nintendo Switch since Launch and I absolutely love it. I enjoy playing it at home (docked) in my living room as well as on-the-go, especially when traveling.

I love the fast load times on my PS5, but I don't like how often I have to charge the dual sense controller. I feel like I have to charge it every eight hours. I wish PlayStation controllers could last 20+ hours on a charge like the Switch Pro Controller.

That's my one hang up with the new controllers as well. Especially rumble heavy games like Returnal, thing was dead in no time.

Yes, battery life on Dualsense is absolute ass.

I enjoy my PS5, Xbox Series X and the Switch. All three have far exceeded my expectations.

Re: Are you overall satisfied with the next-gen consoles? (XBSX, PS5, Switch?)

Iíve played one game each on ps5 and Series X, and am happy with both. Big difference in that PS5 is Horizon Zero Dawn and SX is Lake , but there were numerous complaints about the latter having janky controls, and I really didnít experience that, so thatís a good sign.

I agree about the PS5 battery life, though. I feel like I need to plug it in whenever Iím not actively playing.

Really? Far exceeded? What were your expectations for the PS5 and the XSX?
