Apparently, I'm An Xbox Bro Now

The Xbox's identity has come a long way over the years, from being the system Kurt Indovina had zero interest in, to his console of choice... but how did this happen?

mom bought me an original Xbox for Xmas in 2001 with Halo and NFL Fever 2002, and I've never looked back since.... Xbox 360 came out and it was the first time in my life I got competitive with Halo 3,Gears, COD4 MW, and MW2... tried playing MW with my friend on his PS3 and it did not feel the same the controller was just not it, and I think a big part of why I stuck with Xbox was the superior Xbox Live service, and the ergonomically friendly controllers (for FPS). Spent years without playing VG's only bought an Xbox One S last year, and now recently a Series S I game casually which makes Gamepass the best deal for me, the fact that I can play all these games I've missed out on is the real treat for me.

And you should stay if you're smart and don't want to pay 70 euro for ps5 "exclusive games" that come to pc after

I just bought my first Xbox ever, an Series S to be more specific. Why?, Because during the last two years sony has disappointed me really bad by making videogames (like GOW) feel more like slow interactive movie, then the launch of the ps5 was the final nail in the coffin. While all of these things happen I started to use game pass on my PC and that feature sold me, and now is more important see since I rather pay for a subscription to play games than not being able to play the games that I paid 60 dollars each time.

I have never heard that Xbox was a “bro console” or just the “bro culture” term

Fully understandable! I traded in my PS4 towards my Series X and certainly don't regret it. The whole ecosystem of Xbox is brilliant, and Game Pass is phenomenal value! I've only paid for one game (Cyberpunk 2077 🤣) in my time of owing my Series X, yet I've paid uncountable great games!

I was a lot alike this.. I skipped the first Xbox minus playing halo with a buddy.. Xbox 360 I was there long enough to play mass effect and when ps3 got it I left again. Didn’t even look at the one... then... I bought an Xbox series S and honestly Xbox is my new home. Gamepass is a top app for me. I still have my ps4 but yeah I’ve moved lol.

I never care about hardware - it happens that past two generations I had PS3, base PS4 and a laptop with gtx970m. I was one laughing at a fail launch of Xbox One - not because I wanted them to fail. But because how bad it was! Don Mattrick managed to run the brand to the ground. Phil Spencer did a lot to rebuild it. And he started on something that can be described as demolition site. So I like PS and its exclusive games. But throughout the generation it seems like PS was offering me less and less, hell I had better time gaming on a laptop with no forced payment for online, and really cheap games. This is when I started using Xbox Game Pass PC beta. And I was also looking at what Phil did with the Xbox brand. 3 months ago I got XSX + XGP. I really like it, I still play on my laptop from time to time (a had a lot of games I bought on sales), I still have couple of titles to play on PS4. But one is certain the current MS offering I personally find as a good value for money. have a nice time gaming!

Great piece! Yeah I think I can fall into this too, my childhood and teen years were mostly dominated by gaming on my PS1 and PS2 and I have many fond memories of them. For money reason I cold not buy the PS3, I bought a Wii eventually and basically missed two whole generations of consoles. Flash-forward to this day, while sporadically playing something on my laptop in the meantime, what really got me back into gaming was Xbox Game Pass and Google Stadia, both offer me rather quick access to a variety of games and I surely wouldn't have tried if not and I've been gaming more than in the past 10 years of my life. After all this time, I plan on buying a console, an Xbox Series S, since I know I'll get the most out of it, and I'll keep getting some games on Stadia.

I own a PS5, series X, and a switch. The only console i play on is my series X with gamepass ultimate. The Dualsense controller is cool, but the series X controller wins by comfort and 40+ hours of battery life. I like the smaller size of the series X controller. And i hate the thumbsticks on the ps5 are in the middle of the controller. The thumbsticks on the Xbox controller feels so much better. Smart delivery, VRR, quick resume, 1440P, auto hdr, fps boost, bigger SSD, storrage upgrade posible. It is all missing on the ps5. If i have to choose between the 2, i Will sell my ps5 and keep my series X. Comming from a PS4 pro. Iam not a fanboy, i like Both systems. But the Series X wins this gen. If you have 500 spend it on the series X. Sorry for my english 😉 and with the newest upgrade we have Dolby vision gaming on the Series X 💪🏼

I've always played on all three major consoles. I played Nintendo and PlayStation for their exclusives and Xbox for third party and Xbox exclusives, limited as they may be. This last gen was all work to change the lack of games and build up Gamepass. I believe Xbox will bring the fight to Sony this time around. This will benefit us all, as Sony will right their issues and bring an incredible generation of gaming on the big three!
nanfoodles Před 9 dny
Nice things, defiantly nice things =-) Welcome to the Bro-dumb. I have been one since the first Xbox but this is the first year I didnt also buy an PS or a Nintendo as its side companion. With my many years of game pass and the free games it gave me every month and now what comes with game pass. I have 600+ games I get to pick from without spending any money if I dont wish too. I cant keep up with what I want to play, to justify a few exclusives on another console.

Xbox has transitioned from being console specific to hardcore gamers, to an ecosystem that invites all gamers. They also did it without disregarding the hardcore gamer. Right now there is a lot of hype surrounding the Xbox dispite stumbling out of the gate this gen. The May showcase of 2020 didn't go so well, and the July showcase didn't show much gameplay either. Halo Infinite failed to impress when it was shown, and got delayed for a year. They tried to raise the price of Xbox Live, and they didn't have any first party games on launch day. Hivebusters wasn't even shown and I'm sure it went under the radar for most gamers. It also didn't help that Cyberpunk, the game that should have distracted eveveryone, launched in such a sad state. We'll have to see what they can do with their games going forward. Sea of Thieves grew into a huge game, Gears and Forza are predictably, solid games, and Halo is trying to make a comeback. Most people are interested to see what the new studios put out. Minecraft is in a league of its own.
I liked 360 and Xbox one but not really liking the series x so far I’m still preferring PS4 & PS5.

I started becoming an Xbox guy around 2016. They started to turn the ship around, implemented backwards compatibility. While I haven't agreed with all of their decisions, I do think that they are more forward looking than Sony. I am concerned that they are going to go deeper into the microtransaction realm than Sony is willing to go though. Then again, with this new guy in charge of sony, you never know.

I've been an Xbox gamer right through with a smattering of PS or Nintendo here and there and I've really watched Phil Spencer turn things around for the brand. Who knew having an actual gamer in a leadership role would yeald these results? I can see a definite shift in people choosing Xbox more and more recently

Welcome aboard the brotrain. Morrowind is what got me into the Xbox. I didn't have a PC at the time and it was the only way I had to play it. Now I'm back to PC but I have fond memories of the early days of Xbox. It's great to see Phil righting the ship.
FactsHurtU Před 12 dny
Xbox always had more quirky games but yea it didn't resonate with the real bro crowd. I always had a laugh with the bro crowd and meme that preceded it but was never a bro but what I did know is that the furry games of PlayStation weren't for me and since all the games I did play outside of Jrpgs were on Xbox I shifted late in the ps2-xbox era

Games on both consoles play better on the PS5 controller. And every good game is on PC now that isn't on PS5 or Switch. There's really no logical reason to ever buy an Xbox if you have a decent pc anymore
Ps5 is pointless all their games are coming to pc and sony is going 3rd party with mlb PlayStation is the laughing stock of gaming. Ps5 is a failure totally pointless.

Nice. And you play with Grandma, which would have been basically impossible in any other generation. Nintendo Wii might have been the only way most seniors gave a crap about turning on a console. I love Xbox, but what I really love is the sense of community it developed last gen into this one. Great video.

Xbox has quietly transitioned into a brand that pushes inclusion, convenience, and accessibility and I love it. Game Pass and backwards compatibility are excellent and I applaud them for finding their strength when their biggest competition killed them in the first party ecosystem.

I think it’d be cool to do this type of video with other consoles. I’ve never been big into Nintendo until the Switch came out. So, to see other stories of people getting into other brands they had pre-conceived notions of would be neat!

Was big on PlayStation until I got a cheap Xbox and really it was just the ecosystem and the fact that all my favorite PlayStation franchises are no longer ☹️.

@InnerRise well what kind of exclusives that Ps have other than making sequels os pidefman, god of war, and remastering old games. None.. This gen was hit by pandemic and both xbox and ps5 didn't have much exclusives to begin with. Stop being such a fanboy. Phil spencer wants everyone to play including sony fans too.

@Iván Montalvo you didnt list any games so I assume it's NONE. Thanks

@InnerRise damn, are you really that kind of fanboy? If all that matters for you are the launch exclusives for a console, well...that's sad and weird, man.

I still loved my PS exclusives but my noisy ps4 has now recently been sold without regret
