Advantages of New Xbox Console vs Game Pass on PC

So I have been talking to people about the benefits of buying a console and to me the PS5 makes sense. However, when I look at Xbox and the relationship they have in the PC market I am intrigued why someone would buy an Xbox console. What are some of the top reasons people would buy an Xbox instead of playing a game on PC? 

  • The biggest 3 reasons in my mind will always be:

    1. What your friends are playing on (less important these days with cross-platform support)
    2. What exclusives are on the console
    3. Value!

    The $300 price tag of the Xbox Series S is pretty hard to beat, for those on a budget and what you get out of the box. The game pass like you mentioned is also insanely valuable, with the trial you can essentially get access to hundreds of games at barely any cost, which includes even the newest titles. I feel like the game pass model will become more widespread in the future of gaming.

  • It's all about the exclusives, always wished I got into Xbox or Playstation for more of the Halo series or the Final Fantasy games. But with the game pass on PC and games being mutually exclusive PC > all. But for those who don't have PCs, $300 ain't bad.

  • thats is why I am buying a PS5. I can get the Microsoft exclusives on my PC but not the Sony ones. 

  • Gotta do it for the new Demon Souls remake lol
