Anyway, I have to head out. It's an interesting market right now. Everything MS has done since Phil Spencer took over has been solid. Sony was already solid. I may or may not get a PS5, but right now I think I'll let the early buyers and software sort themselves out beforehand.
You are getting wise, Mr. Maritime Canine :mrgreen:

Sort of? Playstations GNM has seemed like it was why the PS4 Pro was made the way it was. I don't know if they're supporting Vulkan or not, but last I heard that was a no.
Yep no Vulkan (no need, it's more PC/mobile centric tbh), Gnm is low-level anyway:

Gnm is just really an evolution to LibGCM on the PS3, which in turn evolved from PSGL on the PS2 (though the PS2 was mainly bare-metal native like the PS1).
I still find the PS2 to be fascinating in terms of it's performance, it could really punch above it's weight. 8)

That's cool. Admittedly I know little about GNM. We'll see how everything goes, I was obviously not impressed with the PS4P. Some good games to play, then I sold it off.

I'm already likely permanently on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate anyway, so don't want to add PS+ or Nintendos whatever subscription either.

Every console for/from the Eastern market will outsell Xboxes. This is not surprising.

Games not wed to the Xbox platform will use the PS5 platform as the baseline performance target. Even though it's 2tfs less than the X, that shouldn't make that much of a difference. And unless MS is ready to take a big financial hit, the X is going to be from 100 to 300 dollars more expensive than the PS5.

It outsold it worldwide, from all I know. The switch is an amazing console for the tiny amount of performance it has. Family oriented and a lot cheaper. And game load times are way better.

My point was, without the Eastern market the X1 series CAN'T sell better than the opposition.

I'm sure they know this and want to fix it, but I'm not sure they can. Though that might be the whole point of Game Pass, for all I know.
