The choice of a console has always been a great dilemma for us players.

This is why our guide on the consoles available on the market could be useful to you. If you are reading this article, however, it is likely that you have already made your choice, right?

Best Xbox Series X and S exclusives: the latest news
In recent years Microsoft has been able to flesh out its catalog, thanks above all to the increasingly sensational Game Pass, which has allowed the arrival of numerous very good titles within the catalog and all belonging to very different genres. In this guide we will list the best exclusives available on Xbox Series X and S, trying not to leave anything behind.
We repeat once again that we have been talking about for some time now "Microsoft ecosystem", since many of the games we will examine are also available on PC. This, however, does not mean that there is a lack of very valid and very varied works, such as the very recent one The Medium, or the hilarious Battletoads, which, simply, run best on next-gen platforms.
Some titles, however, cannot be said to be completely exclusive. Ori And The Will of the Wisp, for example, was also released on Nintendo Switch: we included it as it has now become an identity symbol of the console (and because, to be honest, it has not yet arrived on PlayStation). We have not even included other titles produced by Microsoft, but available on all other platforms, such as Wasteland 3, for example, or the excellent The Outer Worlds.
