I kept wondering how Sony would react to what Microsoft has on offer for the holiday season in terms of the consoles, the release date, value, etc. And now I’m wondering if they felt like they pulled off a win, here?
Because it doesn’t feel like one.
I’m still not down for either console, right now. Nothing in the launch lineup is pulling me in and nothing seems like it will be until well into next year or even possibly a year after these things release. Microsoft has the advantage of Gamepass and whatever Sony’s answer to that was – well, it wasn’t an answer at all, really. But even Gamepass won’t draw me into a new console when I still get a tremendous amount of value out of it with their current console. So, yeah, for me, I’m good for a while now. Even better when I finally finish this PC build I’ve been working on.
I want to be clear that I’m not judging anyone on their decision with what they do. You want a PS5 or a Series X/S, go right ahead. You know what you want and why you want it, and that’s all that matters in the end of things. But for me, I’m good. There will come a time when I eventually get both machines and maybe even grab a Series S as well, but, and this is weird for me to say during a console launch year…
…I can wait.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, it’s been 2,588 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
