Is the PC the real next generation winner?

Is the PC the real next generation winner?

 

Here's a question for you: what do Deathloop, Ghostwire: Tokyo and Horizon Zero Dawn all have in common? They're all PlayStation and PC games. 

Love it or hate it, the PC seems to be in a much better position in the short term, at least, to serve gamers than the Xbox Series X next generation. Powerful CPUs and new graphics cards like the RTX 3080, for example, are set to outmatch the new consoles.

But high end PCs are expensive, I hear you say. And you'd be right, they are. Things will get better once we get AMD Renoir desktop APUs. Couple them with a decent mid range graphics card (like an AMD RX 5600 XT) and you'd end up with a system capable of playing the latest games in 1440p and can be upgraded as needed to keep up with changing technology.

Game Pass Ultimate on PC

Great hardware needs equally great software. The availability of Game Pass promises to offer a range of next gen games for a low monthly cost. 

This could be Microsoft's saving grace if the Xbox Series X ends up getting crushed by the PlayStation 5. Put Game Pass on every PC and win the generation through other means.

I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft worked with graphics card manufacturers to bundle it with them. Bought a new card? Have a month of Game Pass on us to try out some great games.

What do you think? Is the PC the real winner next generation?
