The compatibility and exclusive games are there biggest selling points for each respected console. Playstation is backwards compatible with most Ps4 games and is very known for their worthwhile exclusive games, such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, and many more. Although Xbox does not have as many big name game exclusives than its rival, it is not to be underestimated. Xbox recently made a deal and bought Bethesda Softworks for $7.5 billion and will have the rights to all of those games. The biggest strength of the Xbox is its backwards compatibility. The Xbox Series X is reported to be compatible with almost all games from any generation of Xbox. This is more beneficial for someone who has been with Xbox for a long time and has gathered a large gallery of games.

We Recently talked to former Arlington High School student Beau Broussard. When we asked Beau about his opinion on the Xbox Series X versus the Playstation 5, he responded, “I honestly think that the Xbox Series X is not worth getting to me. The only benefit I see with it is the faster loading times, which doesn’t make it worth its price. The Playstation 5 is a little bit better with its exclusives but it would probably just be worth is to build a PC.”

In the end, the purchase decision come which is more important to you. Hopefully everyone will get the opportunity to try out the new consoles soon. With their November release dates being so close to the holiday season, people have been buying all of the current stock with some even buying extra in order to resell at a inflated rate.
