MS only talks about things improving in the future. It's been 7 years and we are in the future.

LeeFender43d ago

Too bad you never heard of game development takes time theory. You should go read about it brother.

Xbox's next comment.

''Game development takes time, great things await us''

Why even use that as an excuse when they have two other competitors pumping multiple GOTY within that same timeframe.

jukins42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Soo microsoft with all its studios, even the ones they recently bought, youre tellng me that every developer has basically been sitting on their ass and have only just started development on projects when they got aquired by microsoft?

Godmars29042d ago

But that's suppose to be *Before* a game is released. Not upwards to years after the fact.

Kornholic42d ago

MS has never heard of game release, then. It's ALWAYS a waiting game with Xbox.

Bathyj42d ago

They've had plenty of time.
Time to admit it's not time they're lacking. It's talent. That's why they can't nurture talent, only purchase it.

I've heard that before over a decade ago

You know that is a pc article right?
If you knew or care you would have given credit to Ms to actually succeed in making Xbox mater to pc gamer. Something that has been promised since OG Xbox.
Now the titles are quite optimized on pc, there’s good integration between the pc and platform and Ms is selling quite well on Steam.

A good read to understand this would be the article you just commented.

Dude, MS has done a complete 180 in the last few years.
Don't treat them like the early days of the Xbox One.

They've legitimately done a lot to cleaning up their image.

I would like to see a quick resume feature on PC. It could even be an OS feature so it works with Steam games etc.

DarthMarvin42d ago

It takes ten seconds to load a PC game. What's the point of quick resume?

Orchard42d ago

Some games take far longer. GTA on an NVMe is still long for example.

Plus quick resume let’s you jump straight back in where you were playing. No splash, menus etc.

OptimusDK42d ago

@DarthMarvin You obviously dont understand quick resume - not surprised. The feature is not the fast loading - but that you get into the state you left of.

I can start an xbox game and just shut it down. When i start the game nest day - it just opens the game where i left of - no hasle with menues or loading or saving for that sake. It is a features i would hate to lose once i have tried it.

annoyedgamer42d ago

I hate the Xbox ecosystem. Just put the games on PC and stop shilling this stupid brand.

Orchard42d ago

Huh? Their games are already on PC and have been for years?

DarthMarvin42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

I reckon he means stop putting them exclusively on the sh!tty Xbox for Windows app, which I completely agree with. I want Rare Replay, but I'll never ever install or use the Xbox app, so they should put it on Steam.

Orchard42d ago

Rare replay is old is all - MS games since have been coming to steam for years now.

Honestly though, people get too attached to launchers. I don’t really care if it’s Steam, Xbox or Epic. I’ll buy it where it’s cheapest and play regardless.

DarthMarvin42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

I have friends, so launchers matter to me. I wouldn't if friend lists were combined among them, but they aren't so I'll never play on anything other than Steam.

TheRealTedCruz42d ago

I don't know. As a primarily PC gamer, Xbox acts as the only direct competition for Playstation.
Nintendo has been doing its own thing for years and isn't necessarily trying to go toe to teo with the others.
We're seeing Sony making questionable decisions as is. I don't want to see them in a market where they have less competition.

DarthMarvin42d ago

Xbox on PC will never be good. There's been an Xbox app on PC for almost a decade and it isn't even as good as Epic's launcher, which is absolute trash itself. There's no hope, just put it out of its mysery and release everything on Steam.

LordoftheCritics42d ago

You can download them straight from the windows store. I never use the xbox app.

DarthMarvin42d ago

Because that's better. 🤦

FinalFantasyFanatic42d ago

But the Windows store isn't particularly good for games, I just use Steam for 99% of games, the remainder are Epic, GOG, Origin, ect...

curtain_swoosh42d ago

i feel like that MS is only talking about whats to come .. but it never does. or rarely
