    The first console I ever played on was an Xbox 360 and then the first non handheld console I owned was a ps4 (well I had shared ownership of a wii) and I think I can say that I don't give a crap about either of them :D why are these loser not playing on pc. Y'all be the first ones to play a game for 5 years and get sad when you lose all your data because your console broke.

    As a kid, my rich cousin had an NES, while I only had an Atari 2600 - and yes, I'm obviously ancient, but even back then that console was hopelessly outdated. So, I guess that discrepancy is a thing that will always be around, as it has always been. Back in the Stone Age, the kids were probably all hanging out in the kid's cave with the shiniest rocks or something.

    At this point the only thing sony has over xbox is a handful of exclusives, a couple of which I would say are overrated. Some of them are straight up home runs though. MS has taken control of every other point in the market though, it's not even close.

    I believe that the reserved space on that drive( if it is an ssd which is likely in the modern era) is reserved space which is allocated to make the drive both run faster and have a longer lifespan. The average portion is 10-20% of the total capacity. Not necessary but is highly recommended by anyone in the tech space.

    I've never really understood console wars. Yeah, it makes sense if you can only afford one and you're an immature teenager but most adults buy more than one console these days if they're interesting in exclusive games. I guess it can be fun in a banter type of way where everyone is joking with each other but most people take console wars far too seriously. Some people actually think companies are their friends when all companies care about is money. They aren't your girlfriend. If they can find some way to fuck you over, they will if they can get away with it. As far as I'm concerned, if you make a kickass product, I'll buy it, if you don't, I'll tell you to shove it up your ass, whether you're Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo.

    Console Storage: Some games and also consoles use up more disk space for updates. It's like on steam, when you see the required disk space is mostly way higher, than the actual game's size. Also safe games can also account for that (Every single the witcher 3 save game needed more than 1 gb). So, the diskspace is reserved by the game, but not the system. Also, backup files are getting bigger over time too, so that takes some of the active space.

    @Owen Gratzer you caught me JUST as I got a preorder for the next restock hahaha! My country's biggest toy chain just got their preorders out for the next drop so I secured it! I used to play halo when I had an xbox 360 but I kind of went off first person shooters in favour of more story based games which ig is why I'm favoring the playstation. Naughty dog games are the big pull for me.

    They classify 1gb as 1000mb when they sell the hard drive, however most partitions will be created with 1gb as 1024mb. So for every ONE GB listed on a drive, you lose a small percent, thats why when you get a HUGE hard drive, you are missing an equally big chunk. The more you know, lol. (I had to learn this for my A+ certification back around 2005. If you dont believe me, just do the math. Your missing ~24mb for every 1 gb. How does nobody else know this??? lmao)

    The extra space is needed for downloading , and then extracting to install a game. so for a 50gb game, you need 100gb at least to download and install the game.

    Answer(Although I'm uncertain why it's SO large). They often "Reserve" extra storage space so that if a patch or update comes out for a game, you have space for it. Granted, that shouldn't likely be 1/4th the manageable space but it is a surprisingly large portion
