Xbox’s mentions were absolutely on fire after PlayStation’s PS5 reveal. The race to the next console generation has largely been comprised of the green brand and the blue brand. But, with the number of announcements that came down today from Sony, it seems a lot of Microsoft fans would like to see their favorite brand be a bit more active. The time for that will come, Xbox Series X and Series S have surfaced and the details will increase over the fall. But, that’s never enough when you have a giant player base to keep happy. For today, the PS5 fans are over the moon, but it has become clear that both brands are borrowing from each other a lot now. Trying to carve out any and all advantages in every way possible as the drive to distance themselves from the competition grows more urgent with the holidays nearing.
Comicbook.com’s Tanner Dedmon talked about how the preorders for the Series X and Series S were announced earlier this week to similar hysteria.

“Microsoft previously announced the pre-order date for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and we now know exactly when those pre-orders will go live. It was announced on Tuesday that the pre-orders for both next-gen consoles would go live through UK retailers at 8 a.m. BST on September 22nd,” Dedmon wrote. “That time converts to midnight in Pacific Time, so it looks like that’s when we can expect the pre-orders for the Xbox consoles to go live next week.”
“News of when the pre-orders will go live for the new Xbox consoles only widens the gap between what we know about the next-gen Xbox plans and what we know about the PlayStation 5, but gap will hopefully close soon during Sony’s upcoming PlayStation event,” he continued. “The next PlayStation 5 event is scheduled to take place on September 16th at 1 p.m. PT where we’ll see a showcase of some of the games coming to the PlayStation 5. Other announcements have always made sure to stress that there wouldn’t be any console news at past events, but this one carries no such warning. The thinking then is that we’ll finally get news of the PlayStation 5 cost and release date, but we won’t know for sure until the event takes place.”

If I were y’all I would secure Cyberpunk for the release on November 10th and maybe make it exclusive for like a week or two cuz Sony is making y’all look bad and this is coming from an Xbox fan
