Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve, has come straight out and said who he “supports” in the Xbox/PlayStation next-gen conversation.
And, simply put, he prefers the Xbox Series X to the PlayStation 5.
Speaking to Project NZ, a New Zealand news team (Newell found himself holed up there for lockdown), Newell gave his opinion on the two next-gen consoles.
As explanation, Newell noted that he thought the Series X was better. When pushed for a reasoning how he decided that, Newell responded that is was better, “because it is”.
Right. Whilst I may prefer Xbox over PlayStation, I could at least exhibit a rationale behind why I think one is better over the other. But, then again, I’m not Gabe Newell.
Newell continued to say;
“I don’t have a stake in that race. Obviously, we do most of our development on personal computers, [but of the two] I would definitely go with an Xbox”.
So, there we have it (I guess). The Xbox Series X is [not] definitively better than the PlayStation 5.
