      What would buying more studios accomplish? Their output is dogshit and there are no exclusives to speak of on their console. They all but abandoned the console market and are shifting focus on the PC market that has much wider appeal.

        more games exclusive for gamepass.
        gamepass is literally the only thing microsoft cares about.

        look at their actual game studios. they dont fucking care about it anymore.
        new fable game? fucking dead
        perfect dark? fucking dead
        Gears of war? fucking dead

        its like the only game series they cared about supporting was Forza.

        It's the same as Sony, games takes usually 6 years to make nowadays, which will be reached next year and games will start coming out, assuming you mean XGS except their old studios. They have this problem because they started buying only in 2018.

        They live for gamepass, they don't care about putting out new games. Since Rareware buy whenever they get a new studio they just kill them off. They just want to own gaming but it'll never work since Steam already beat them to the punch.

        Major media companies have known for a while that humans have a psychological predisposition to liking things that engage their pattern recognition and prediction abilities.
        Therefor something that falls into a neat box and continues to remain in the boundaries of that neat box is desirable to a human.
        It doesn't matter if it's music that repeats a string of notes you've heard before, a crossover with a character you know behaving in predictable ways or an established brand with a formula. If a new thing is similar to an old thing it is easier to sell.

        Sony loses no matter what. If the deal goes through then MS will proceed as usual. If the deal doesn't go through, it will piss off all the key people at Activision because they lose out on all that money which in turn will make them more sympathetic to MS with regard to future deals and exclusivity. Sony is just shooting themselves in the foot trying to stop this.

      Microsoft announced 10k layoffs across the entire company out of a workforce of 250k (after hiring 40k people since mid 2021), some of which are occurring in 343 and Bethesda. Not much word on Beth, but with Starfield basically finished they’re probably just axing temporary flex workers. 343 got hit much harder, they basically moved their entire campaign staff over to multiplayer, let go the people that couldn’t make the switch like concept artists, and said that going forward they’ll be getting outside studios to work on single player Halo projects while they run the live service MP and update/maintain the halo engine.

      I actually think they're doing a lot for consoles as far as services go. That games pass or whatever is no joke and I like how they seem to be kind of pushing for this environment where platforms are irrelevant and getting games out to people is what matters. I'm behind that and I won't talk shit about the series sxssxxxsss or whatever they want to go by.

      It's just pathetic to try and paint xbox exclusives as worth a shit. It's like trying to say HL2 is the definitive PC experience in 2023. The platform has developed beyond that.

      Nintendo and Sony are the ones I consider to be the ones still doing traditional consoles, which isn't a bad thing but it's not exactly pushing me to buy the next big release.

    Yeah, Game Pass is not sustainable and people are no longer buying games but rather waiting for them to go on GP instead. It's become the poorfag console thanks to the Series S and GP being so cost efficient but publishers are probably going to ditch it when people no longer buy new titles on it. Day 1 releases were a huge mistake because they create entitled customers.
