Xbox Series X is exactly the console Microsoft needed to build. And I'm taking it as a sign that Microsoft believes in Xbox's future.
“I'm taking it as a sign that Microsoft believes in Xbox's future.“ Well the billions of dollars spent on content and Studios make this point fairly obvious.
"Well the billions of dollars spent on content and Studios make this point fairly obvious. Ideed. More acquisitions to come. Phil Spencer is on fire
Oh no! Did he get too close to the XSX exhaust port?? Just kidding :-)
At this point MS doesn't need more acquisitions(on small scale it doesn't matter), they need to focus on delivering quality games. If they continue to acquiring Studios this will turn out to Gaming Monopoly and we don't need that in Gaming Industry. Money cant secure success thought, talent and fresh ideas can.
" More acquisitions to come" Id be surprised if everyone stopped all of a sudden.
Phil Spencer is on fire? More like Phil Spencer should be fired.... Xbox under him has been painful these last 5 years
Microsoft checkbook is on 🔥.
As a console, not just as a service. It *should* be fairly obvious what he said, you're correct there.
All these billion dollar studios will be creativily limited by 10gb of slow ram and a 3.9tf gpu. Defenitily believing in the future there Phil.
Exactly. It's so utterly stupid to say xbox believes in the future of the industry in that context. All they care about is their precious gamepass. It's why they are perfectly fine releasing a gimped xss to sell to uneducated casuals that's going to hamsting the xsx for the entire generation. And yet there's so many fools defending or dismissing this. If you want an actual next gen console with actual next gen games, get a ps5, it's as simple as that.
No .... by civil engineer
Civil engineers who believe in games?
Might be worth googling what 'civil engineers' actually engineer...
@Fishy Fingers: I was just trying to go with the flow. But, yeah, no bridge building happening here. I like that you replied to me and not TheExecutioner, though :P
Southbridge and northbridge are standard parts of a motherboard dude.
@Fishy Fingers: I thought AMD called them controller hub and apu?
Fishy so sassy nowadays I'm here for it 😂
well, who else would build the southbridge! (ba-dum-dum)
Civil Engineers design septic tanks for playgrounds, so little kids can take shits Sorry, just reminded me of that line xD
I love the new direction xbox is heading. That change in leadership (both at XB and MS) has done an amazing turn around for the platform. No tv tv tv and more games games games.
With Microsoft so heavily focused on cloud computing, Xbox is only going to see continued support to dominate in that arena against Google and Amazon. It's an arena Microsoft cannot afford to lose (neither can the other two, though). And as long as they get that support, their hardware and software will continue to be supported as a means to their goal because everyone realizes that the biggest differentiator in the cloud is content and pricing.
@darkWingsoul: This isn't so much as breaking barriers as it is preventing others from doing it if it's possible. Microsoft DOES NOT want Google or Amazon entering any cloud market they can't beat them at.
You mean the direction of their abysmal support for this entire generation and will continue that pattern by not releasing a single launch exclusive for their glorified pc (xsx), which will be throttled to cater to the weaker xss, all the while they brag about BC because that's literally all they can brag about and continuing their push to turn the industry into a subscription model that will see the disappearance of quality AAA games that will be replaced with shallow, poorly made GaaS that are riddled with MTs? That direction? You people supporting this are beyond the pale.
Hey, CaptainObvious, you seem to view gaming as it is in it's current state and not see where the future is going. This has nothing to do with bragging rights on launch day. I'm glad Phil is focusing on where he is taking Xbox. In five years nobody will care about launch day, who had a 4k UI, or that one remake that may or may not be next gen. I'll be playing Starfield and ES6 on my Series X Pro in my living room, my PC at work, streaming to my Series S in the bedroom, and on my tablet or cell when I'm away from home. You will be like Al Bundy reminiscing how you had 4 touchdowns in high school while the rest of the world grew up 😁
Yes, please forgive me for wanting the industry to continue to produce amazing AAA games that I can actually own for a reasonable price. Ironically, It's actually you that fails to see where the future is headed. And thanks to your ignorance you'll be supporting it's inception.
So was the PS5.
Not really. It was built for its fans.
You do realize this is about who built it, not for whom it was built, right? It can be both built FOR fans and built BY people who believe in games.
tbh thats 100% false, it was built for developers. cerny did a trip going to all major studios and asked what they wanted in the new console. their number 1 ask was for a super fast SSD. other things of course etc etc.
I've upvoted because I think some didn't get that pun... And I had to smirk a little even if it wasn't an intentional pun by Killer73nova
No, the engineers at Sony believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. And that the Children are the Future. Facts.
Jeff Grubb LOL, him and Tom Warren are the biggest shills out there.
Jeff grubb actually prefers nintendo games more than anything else. How have positive articles now automatically be branded as “paid for”. Just because it doesn’t support your agenda
lol this this , accurate
Microsoft is leading the way to greatness.
When you're so far back it looks like you're leading.
Nextgen hasn't started yet , so they're both even.
*side glance at Nintendo Switch*
It looks close, its just their opponent lapping them. Lol
Grade A my friend, lol.
And that's why they're launching with 0 new AAA first party games...
Yeh and their new slogan on the box...is "power your dreams". -yeh ..cos that's all you'l be doing... Dreaming...(about games that aren't there or arn't ready for years. -When they finally release, there's no guarantee they will be Good.. infact going from state of decay 2 and crackdown 3, they could very well end up mediocre.)
The PS4 launch was hardly stellar
Gunstar75 - yet it shames the xsx launch. That's how embarrassing it is.
Not comparable. It was a refresh and a much better design at that. And x1x was a massive upgrade across the board. Its jud that Sony released some awesome first party content. Props there. Third party... x1x minced the pro
@Gunstar Dude reading comprehension is a thing. Nexus mentions Series X and you ramble on about the One X like you know what you're talking about shows how clueless you are. Just idiotic.
lol at the damage control
No Kidding... In other news - "A disease cure has been created by doctors who believe in medicine!" All in all though, MS seems to be signaling a direction that could bring them back to the 360 glory years (RROD notwithstanding). If they can walk the walk that is...
A few good years of games and completely forget about them to focus hard on casual gamers?
Good to see they've met the minimum expectation then.
What console was built by people who don't believe in games?
the original vision for xbox one in 2013 , it was one for the one system for all entertainment, the console was shown off first for the tv functionality.
Why no mention of series s? Reminds me of when X came out it as if xbox one S was forgotten about
I think the S will be discontinued in a few years honestly.
Maybe the One S can survive as a low cost 4k Blu-ray player that can stream next gen games like Stadia promised but failed at. It won't require much to stream in 4k 60fps, and the global network infrastructure might be up to the task by then
S is for gamepass and cloud, they'll keep it and upgrade all the stuff, making the previous one obsolete.
These sponsored Xbox articles crack me up
As opposed to? PS5 was made by people who don't believe in games?
No. Ps5 was made by people who "make" the games. Not dream about them
"The Xbox Series X was designed by people who believe in game pass." There, fixed it.
One more fix: "Microsoft believes in Xbox's future [as a subscription service]."
All i see is that Microsoft trying to market old games as new. They have a similar business tactics as a used car salesman.
Oh, they believe in games alright. Third party games, cause I don’t see one good first party game been released on the launch window.
Gears tactics is "good" no? Not pretending that its a stellar launch lineup, but this isn't like other generations is it?
You would think believing in games would be a given. What would a game console look like if the developers didn't believe in the existence of games? Would it just run Office 365?
Lol and xbox was also designed by people who believe in making money.
