I mentioned earlier. for me, it's Ps5 for a console and PC for Xbox exclusives (most end up on PC).

Okay, so no reason to buy the XBox then if you just want a console? Why have people been buying XBoxes in the past?

Xbox live is probably better than PS+ overall. If you're into Halo or Gears of war, that's another reason. The new Xbox specs beat the PS5 specs. However, as JB said, i chose PS5 (and every PS before it) for exclusives, and I have a gaming PC for Xbox exclusives if i want to play those.

Just fyi to anyone trying to score one. Man, 3070 or 3080. I can't decide...j


@nickuku - If true, save yourself the coin. The RTX is going to have to come in a lot hotter than this.

Damn this blows.

Most people don't have gaming PC's. That's just how my setup is going to look. I already have a gaming PC that's more than a match for the new Xbox (and I haven't even upgraded which I plan on doing as soon as supply is reasonable.). IF it's a choice between one or the other, look at which exclusive titles each has and decide from there. Both consoles are going to be a bit better here, a bit better there when compared to each other but neither one is going to be tangibly different than the other performance wise.

^and don't underestimate Halo. I know many, many people that will buy any model of Xbox so long as a new Halo is exclusively tied to it.

PS all day for me, every year. Big fan of the exclusives. Final Fantasy, Spiderman, TLOU, God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, MLB, Ratchet and Clank . . . hard to beat. Final fantasy alone is enough for me to commit to Playstation, in the same way that many Halo fans will be Xbox lifers so long as it is exclusive to Xbox.

Demon's Souls as a launch title made the decision to get the PS5 at launch a no brainer for me. That game will be incredible based on what i've seen so far (never got to play the original on PS3, but i played all other "Souls" games).

Picked up the FTW3 Ultra 3090. Pretty much the top end 3090. Check out lasted about 30 minutes due to everyone trying to get one. I could probably flip this for 2.5-3k or use it.

How many people actually picked up a 3090 to keep? Seems like a lot of people are buying it to flip.
Also a 3090 with an 8k tv is just another level of gaming compared to the upcoming Xbox or PS5.

Damn. Do you have it in hand? How big is it?

If you can get your hands on a 3080, grab it and decide if the extra coin is worth it. Even used, either one you flip in the next few months is going to net you a profit.

Getting it tmr I think. Ordered from EVGA. I think I'm gonna flip it. Hardwareswap offers are close to 2.5k for the base 3090 so I'm guessing I can get near 3k.

Unfortunately they were sold out within the second that it took me to add to cart. I've never seen demand like this that wasn't due to mining.

I experienced the same with a bunch of Kobe shoe drops a few weeks ago. At least with time, we can get PS5's or RTX 3080's at retail price. Those Kobe's are gone...only way is to pay 5x more. Moreso as time goes by. It sucks.

I think the current production run is sold out. I'm not really in a hurry since I plan to do a full ITX build. I need to figure out a case. I'm debating between an Ncase or the NZXT H1. The H1 comes with preinstalled water cooling and a SFX psu so that offsets it's $350 price tag by more than half. I'm just not so sure I want watercooling. I ran a custom loop in an EVGA Hadron case and I expected it to be whisper quiet. Those pumps are LOUD! Also the AMD 4XXX series are coming to desktop in a week or two so there's a lot of research I need to do. It's all low priority to be honest until the #'s for Cyberpunk comes out. For all I know my 2070 Super might be more than enough to handle the game at the settings I like.
