        I really must have been living under a rock, MS bought Nokia and killed them? I thought Nokia just died because they couldn't keep up with the competition.

          Nokia died because MS bought them and forced them to exclusively use Windows Phone OS on their phones when every other Phone maker was starting to use Android.

              Same. I used a Lumia 530 until 3G was shut down in my area. Nice phone (perfect size), nice OS. Didn't really care about the lack of app support as I only used it for calls, texts, emails, and music anyway.

                Yes. They just barely survived the launch of Windows 10, very few Lumias actually got the update before Nokia was put down. The 530 was stuck on 8.1 forever despite getting 10's beta.

                I don't know, I bought an 1st gen iPhone SE on eBay to replace the Lumia. It's basically the same size, but I don't think there's any other LTE phones that small that aren't some basic gimmicky thing, but even the SE is basically unsupported as it's stuck on iOS 15 forever. Will probably keep it until LTE gets shut down just like the Lumia with 3G.

          Yeah, Nokia couldn't keep up with competition and then it was bought by MS to deal a deathblow.

          Nokia makes good smartphones. I dropped my nokia 6 in a lake for a few minutes, dried it for a few days, still works fine years later. Has a decent camera too

        Not exactly. Microsoft only bought Nokia's mobile division. Nokia itself was not bought, and it is still a major provider of telecom infrastructure equipment. Also, there is a company called HMD, founded by Nokia executives, that makes smartphones with the Nokia brand under license.

    I made posts on places like Ganker about how there is no way in hell MS is going to be able to manage dozens of studios all making these $100MM+ games. And I am a literal nobody, how come I could figure it out but big brains making millions of dollars at MS couldn't?

      it's kind of weird their excuse was that they couldn't handle so many studios given their management MO recently was 'do nothing while their studios frick up spectacularly', going off reports about the Perfect Dark game

      Also I cannot believe they didn't cancel that and shut down that years ago given what a financial black hole it must be, aren't they waiting like a bunch of cucks for Crystal Dynamics to finish Tomb Raider so they can come work on it for them?

      They don't actually care if the games fail because they can just float away on golden parachutes, we're in late stage capitalism where the people making the decisions are divorced from the consequences of them.

      Turns out making products and then making accessible via a rental service is undercutting themselves.

      A catalogue of dozens of games worth $40-60+ available all at once on a subscription fee? Turns out to be pretty detrimental.

        Do you mean Bethesda? It's more like buying the publisher to get all of their dev studios.

        They're banking on Elder Scrolls 6 delivering and not fumbling like Starfield did.

          Apparently when they announced ES6 it had not even began preproduction, so its still a long ways out. When you saw "Elder Scrolls VI" on the screen, you were actually seeing everything they had for it.....
