Now that the Xbox Series X (or XSX for short) and the PlayStation 5 (PS5 – you get how this works) have been revealed, it’s time for a good, old-fashioned meme-off!
There are people on both sides of the aisle who both love and hate these two designs. The PS5’s sleek futuristic design is meant to stand out in living quarters, according to Sony CEO Jim Ryan. The XSX was designed with a similar intent, to make it the centerpiece of the room.
But even the fans who love things, cannot resist poking fun (mememememe!) at what they love. So commence the group who went first in reveals, the XSX!
Xbox Series X flexes its monolithic appeal

Now, PS5 routes some fun at itself
I think these are hilarious; the Cell one is probably my favorite. It’s amazing.

This, like the Cell one above, stands in a class its own:

Funny is as Funny does.
Fans on both sides of the aisle are going to poke and laugh, but everyone is ready to distract themselves from 2020 as a whole, and the prospect of even a good old console fanboy war is enough to take people’s minds off of the drudgery of reality (what day am I still sheltering in place on?).
I say, bring the memes until launch day!
