Up until this week, nothing has really excited me about the new consoles coming out in a few months. The features and games, there was nothing pulling me in really. Then Microsoft really opened the doors on what theyâ€™ve got and now…well, I feel a bit of that excitement coming back.
And oddly enough, Iâ€™m more excited about the smaller, scaled back version of the Xbox Series S. We go over the differences a bit in the show here to tell you exactly how scaled back the Series S actually is, but Iâ€™m still excited by it. To the point I may, and likely will, eventually own both a Series X and a Series S.
Although, let me tell you now, I donâ€™t think either would be as tempting if it werenâ€™t for Xbox Gamepass. And that may really be the case here why Iâ€™m not just all over Sony. Honestly, none of the systems have launch titles or anything that is really drawing me in, but Gamepass and the ability with it to play a ton of games is why Iâ€™m pulled in the direction of Microsoft. That and the Series S price tag are a great combo. Sony has nothing like that to compete against and Iâ€™m really curious to see what theyâ€™re going to do about it – if anything at all.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,581 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise).
