Starfield delights Xbox players whereas PS5 house owners undergo a uncommon loss

OPINION: It has been one other busy week on this planet of tech with Nothing unveiling the look of its first Nothing Cellphone (1). However for us right here at Trusted Critiques it was the recent wave of Xbox and PS5 bulletins that stole the present and marked an fascinating shift within the subsequent technology console conflict.

A lot so, that for the primary time in a very long time, our workforce of avid players pegged Microsoft as the highest canine on this week’s installment of winners and losers and PS5 players struggling a uncommon loss. Right here’s why.

Winner: Xbox players

This week Xbox Sequence X and Xbox Sequence S followers had been handled to a wealth of treats. The largest was the official unveiling of Starfield.

Particularly, we noticed Bethesda lastly present precise gameplay of Starfield and make sure it would launch in 2023. It is a huge deal as the sport has been producing a great deal of hype because it was first unveiled and teased by Bethesda at E3 a few years in the past.

Made by the identical folks behind a number of the finest RPGs we’ve ever reviewed, together with Fallout and Skyrim, the sport oozes promise and from what we’ve seen it could possibly be one in every of subsequent 12 months’s finest video games. The gameplay on present appears like Skyrim in house. To non-gamers which means it’s a large position taking part in sport the place you’ll be able to fly spaceships, go to planets in a breath-taking open universe.

We don’t know a lot in regards to the story, however the sport appears epic in scope with Bethesda displaying off detailed character customisation mechanics in addition to enjoyable fight and spaceship piloting gameplay. If that wasn’t sufficient to tempt you, it additionally revealed that there are greater than 1000 planets to go to in over 100 photo voltaic methods. If true, Starfield may make Elden Ring look brief.


Loser: PS5 players

The one draw back we noticed in the course of the Starfield demo is that, following Microsoft’s buy of Bethesda, the sport might be a PC and Xbox unique. You probably have a PS5 then you definitely’re out of luck as Starfield gained’t be launching on the platform.

Including to the woes of PS5 players, the platform additionally misplaced a couple of different in style video games. The largest of those was Atlus’ beloved JRPG Persona 5, which was formally faraway from the PlayStation Plus Assortment.

It is a uncommon incidence within the ongoing console wars, with Sony’s PlayStation platform historically outright dominating Xbox for sport exclusives and authentic IP. This was a key purpose we really useful the PS4 over the Xbox One again within the day. Exclusives included God of Battle, Horizon Zero Daybreak and The Final of Us, which to this present day are among the many highest scoring video games we’ve ever reviewed.

On condition that Microsoft nonetheless has a lot extra up its sleeve with different Bethesda properties, to not point out the whole lot it swallowed up when it purchased Activision, there could possibly be extra envious moments to return for Sony’s playerbase.
