PS5 or Xbox Series X? Over 3000 players have decided, with more than half of those surveyed wanting to buy the console a few months after the release.
We knew it, and you knew it too: Of course it is PS5 the next-gen favorite those players who gave their opinion in an English survey during the MCM Comic Con. In the wake of the corona virus pandemic, the pop culture convention was held via streams, so the perfect place to be over Ask 3000 volunteer players about their preferences. The dates were between the June 25th and July 2nd collected, with the focus not only on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but also those Games that are most eagerly awaited in the coming months.
Everyone wants a PS5 – and Cyberpunk 2077
Maybe not quite allbut impressive 84 percent of players are looking forward to the PS5 rather than the Xbox Series X, though 37 percent all want to dig up their favorite console for release. More than half will wait a maximum of 6 months after the console launch to purchase. Incidentally, the fact that the PS5 is so far ahead may also be due to the fact that almost all Xbox One and Xbox Series X games can also be played on the PC – which will not be the case with PS5 titles.
However, other numbers are interesting in the survey; about that “only” 59 percent have decided the PS4 is currently their favorite platform for gaming, while 16 percent voted for Xbox One, 14 percent for PC and 8 percent for Nintendo Switch.
And what games are waiting for (at least the English) players? Unsurprisingly, the CD project Red Science Fiction Blockbuster Cyberpunk 2077 is very popular, but immediately afterwards most of them are actually looking forward to the co-op action game Marvel’s Avengers. Across the survey, the first five places of the games that are most eagerly awaited:
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Marvel’s Avengers
- Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 (Remaster)
- Dying Light 2
- Halo Infinite
You can pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 through the PS Store if you want to. Incidentally, the game will receive a free update for the PS5 as soon as the console has spilled onto the market.
Which one should it be? We introduce you to the next-gen consoles:
MCM Comic Con is one Fan-fiction convention with a focus on pop culture topics such as video games, comics, cosplay and science fiction. Since only participants of the English online event were interviewed, of course, their answers do not reflect the opinion of all players – they are still absolutely meaningful for Germany. This does not mean that we cannot expect similar answers here in Germany.
