I do not own an Xbox One or Xbox One X. Last year, I bought a Playstation 4 to play Horizon: Zero Dawn as well as the The Uncharted series and The Last of Us. This year, I got to play God of War 4, Spider-man, and (IMO) underrated Detroit: Become Human. All those games are real exclusives on the PS4.
So, the shopping season is coming up. I am looking at the game library of Xbox One... it literally has almost NO exclusives. The only good "exclusives" it has are console or timed (no longer) exclusives, which I also call FAKE exclusives because they are not real exclusives. If I can play the games on my preferred platform PC, why should I spend money to buy a console to play them??? WHY?? I literally could NOT think of a reason to buy an Xbox One or Xbox One X.
IMO, Microsoft's BIG blunder was to lose Bioware as an exclusive developer, (i.e., Mass Effect used to be an Xbox exclusive.) Now that Playstation has the highly-acclaimed exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn, (which is a Bioware-style RPG that will become a trilogy,) Xbox really needs an exclusive RPG series that can compete with Horizon to stay in the game. Horizon is the main reason why I own a PS4 but not an Xbox One.
BTW, if you are thinking about buying a console as a gift for someone this Christmas, please do not buy an Xbox One or Xbox One X. For that person's sake of good gaming, buy a PS4 instead because, "Xbox has no (exclusives) games" is real.
