    Well I am almost unashamedly an Xbox "fan boy/old geezer" right from original Xbox, due in no small measure to my obsession with Gears, well that and I enjoy the online and social interaction on Xbox way above Sony.

    But even I can see that Sony kicks Xbox arse ALL over the place when it comes to exclusive titles and looking at GoT I would think they and we (Sony owners) get another highly polished and wonderful game. This along with TLoU2 means I will hardly be off the ps4 for months...albeit I will be playing Gears daily of course.

    If you don't change your preference based on which one is clearly better you're definitely a fanboy though. See everyone who's preference is xbox this gen.

    Signed someone who used to prefer xbox.
    Better is subjective though, Iíve got PS4 and X1X.. the X is clearly more powerful but i hardly use it. Iíve got a huge backlog of PSVR games to get through and keep nibbling away at GoW, Spiderman and Days Gone. My kids take up so much of my time so my gaming is split between the Switch with my lad and the odd hour here and there on the PS4. This will be the first gen I only buy one console, until a new Switch comes out ;)

    Decks obviously meant games. Though even that's fairly subjective; if you prefer shooters, Xbox is probably better for you than Playstation. If you prefer big budget third person action adventure, Playstation is obviously better.

    Simplifying things a bit, obvs, but they do each have their differing strengths. For me, how it feels to move the character around the world is one of the most important things, hence why I enjoyed stuff like ReCore, Ori, Crackdown 3, Sunset Overdrive etc more than most.

    I'm more centred around the ecosystem than anything and xbox is my preferred one especially that's where all my friends are. I will say that the best single player experiences for me have been on the Playstation this generation.

    Social is an aspect, and the vast majority of people I know to either play or talk games with already were Sony or swapped this gen (were I still in the UK this would be different). I like plenty of games on both to justify either but Iím more inclined to leave Halo unplayed than the Naughty Dog games, or Spider-man. Thereís just more 1st party with Sony that I want to play, and the 3rd party is kind of irrelevant.

    This coming generation will be the first that I donít buy all the consoles. Up until the PS4 I always played the majority of games on the most powerful machine, and kept the Sony console for their exclusives, but despite owning the X1X I find that I still play mostly on the PS4 now. The power advantage has become less of an appeal than having everything central, and Iíve got a bigger library/social group on PS4.

    MS is definitely a better company to be a customer of from a support perspective, and I hope Sony do something along the Game Pass lines with PSNow in the future, but Iím fortunately in a position where I donít need to have my purchases subsidized, nice as it would be.

    The major fault that MS made (for me) this gen was the dashboard interface, and early dev tools. It was such a ball-ache to use for quite a long time that it really put me off doing so. I wasnít ever interested in TVTVTV or Kinect, but they were much more intended for the US market generally anyway. I was onboard for the digital movement but they reversed it.

    Ed: Yes, Ghost. Looks nice. I like the wind.

    Thank you for your honesty. That's all I wanted Derblington to admit. He's a Sony fanboy but he keeps trying to feign this "I'm an objective gamer" vibe :)

    Looking forward to this. My Xbox is getting very jealous with all my time on PS at the moment. Finished TLoU2 yesterday, started Terminator on ps4 today,(only 90 mins in but I like it so far) it was £8 cheaper than xbox! and then GoT in a few weeks. :)

    This game could convince me to upgrade my PS4 to a Pro. I like what has been shown so far. The theme feels different.

    @DUFFMAN5 Let me know what you think of Terminator. And make sure you ramp up the difficulty to the hardest. Even then it's too easy though! I loved it. Great little game, especially towards the end.

    Sounds like they've put a lot of thought into it anyway.

    Looks very cool here https://youtu.be/fLnRMN5yvcw

    @DeadDeadpool

    At this point why not just wait and get a PS5?

    Many reasons.
    It never makes sense to buy the latest console the moment it is released. First of all there is price, high. Then there is the lack of software. Thirdly, it might make sense to wait a few years for them to release updated hardware that looks better and possibly use less electric, as they did with the PS3. With PS5 on the way, PS4 Pro price's are going to drop.

    Price will be high, Everything else can be mitigated though - PS4 library will fill any gaps, trade-in /sell for the mid-gen refresh, etc.

    Although obviously a very different product, I do wonder if the technical aspects of the game may get caught in the shadow of lou2 a bit. Although itís rather similar to ac in some ways. Iím wishing for great things but I hope itís got enough freshness to it.

    Reviews are coming 14th of July, 3 days prior to release.

    Not sure if this will be my next purchase, I really fancy Desperadoes 3 and should clear up a couple of the open world games in my backlog first.

    Iíve got it pre-ordered on the console already.
    From everything Iíve seen to date it looks like Iím gonna dig it, and Iíve got the time off from work, so it was really just a case of when anyway.

    It looks good and I love the setting but as I hate their previous games I'll wait on reviews for this one.

    I was quite excited for it until I saw the video of the devs running through it the other week. It looked so cookie-cutter, so predictable. I'm holding out for the setting and combat being the things that elevate it, because if that's all janky then it's basically just Ass Creed with a different skin.

    I'm quite optimistic about the combat after reading the thing above. I'll be picking it up if reviews OK, mainly down to the setting and the selection of hats.

    The setting really floats my boat and it looks graphically amazing but it does have a very generic Ubisofty look to its mechanics. Hopefully the sword combat will elevate it.
    I'll still get it day one though.

    Iím definitely getting it, Iíve been looking forward to it for ages, pretty much because of the setting. I really hope it doesnít turn out to be an Ubisoft clone, as much as I loved the opening to Origins a lot of that was the environment, the gameplay got old fast.
