Microsoft Continues To Support HD-DVD

Microsoft used the HD-DVD press event at this years CES to make it clear that they are fully behind HD-DVD.

They will continue to sell the XBOX 360 HD-DVD add-on drive for $199.99. They will also continue to include the remote and "King Kong." They also said they had sold 10.4 million consoles worldwide to date...

Last of US was organic feeling. The "queer" thing doesn't feel tacked on like a lot of the games now.

how you not gonna mention 'The ballad of gay tony'!



Europe software sales | May 2024 | EA FC 24 #1, Ghost of Tsushima #4, Hellblade 2 missed 'Top 100'

"This is GSD figures, which tracks all digital game sales from most major publishers (Nintendo data is absent), and physical game sales in all major European markets."

"The No.1 selling game in May this year was EA Sports FC 24, followed by Grand Theft Auto 5. F1 2024 races in at No.3. The PC release of Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut sends the PlayStation game up to No.4."

"11.6 million PC and console games were sold across European markets in May. Compared with the same five week period in 2023, that's a drop of nearly 17%."

"Hellblade 2, System Shock Remake, and the Rogue Prince of Persia all missing out on the Top 100."

I need an xbox fan to explain to me how Hellblade didn't even enter the top 100 since Game Pass doesn't effect sales and you guys are all just using the service as a trial to buy the games later.... /s (for sigh)

Also tell me again how 3.5 M sales first month for FF was bad...

If Microsoft didn't buy the developer this could have been a multiplatform game and if they wanted they still could have got it day 1 on Game Pass.

If I worked at Ninja Theory I'd be sprucing up my resume right about now.

Why are you more concerned about Microsoft’s financials than Microsoft?

Think it's pretty obvious to most that Hellblade 2 was a flop, it was setup to fail by skipping playstation and being sent to die on gamepass, especially on a platform where they openly mock playstation 'movie games', this being way more movie than any PS game.

Here we go.. too much barking about EA CEO getting a big bonus when the same ones are buying his games. So pathetic
