According to Microsoft's Xbox CFO, Tim Stuart, consoles have become the foundation and cornerstone of Microsoft's strategy going forward.
How can it be the cornerstone when you don't have to buy the console to play its exclusives? With a company not concerned with gamers buying Xbox or not? Not about sales huh? How can it when there were no secondary launch games? Putting 500 million in one egg basket that failed from a trillion dollar company. The corner looks more like a straight line. We were told Phil would be ready this time being that he's in charge. Or is it still Mattrick's fault?
What do you people think powers the games you play on gamepass through the cloud? Hardware based on PlayStations? Good grief kids, these are financial executives doing a Q&A at a business conference, not PR statements to gaming blogs.
There does not exist an "LOL" large enough to properly express my reaction to this.
Hardly a day goes by without there being an article with an "ms/xbx executive says....." It's gotten tiresome now. Won't be long before we here from the bloke who cleans out the toilets about what MS's strategy will be. (rolls eyes).
Methinks games should be that cornerstone, no? Because without them, you don't really have consoles worth getting.
He has to say this. They just released a new console.
(Laughing so hard my stomach hurts). Ah, that's a good one.
Microsoft is great when it comes to office programs. But for gaming? Nah.
"We're not doing things like making Halo Infinite exclusive to the next-gen consoles, but doing things like making our controllers exclusive to these generational consoles, which really puts the user at the center." - MS Exec who thinks the controller is a guy in the accounting department
Let me just scroll the comments, I'm sure there isn't gonna be any excessive Sony fanboyism in the comments... ... .... .....
BS. Gamepass+XCloud are. each new announcement MS renders Xbox more and more irrelevant.
This makes complete sense only if you take into account they use modified xbox consoles for servers
maybe they should just put some games out
