I don't think it's going to happen as only one platform is paying full price and that platform as of right now has double the amount of people currently playing Baldurs Gate 3 then Starfield also Starfield is currently fallen to a 75% rating on Steam.
I'm enjoying Starfield to a point, the problem is a vast universe of reused locations and no real exploration. There's one reused location that confused me for a while, the one where a sniper is on a roof of a science facility. The sniper sits next to a cool box thats surrounded by empty beer bottles and I always wondered how they would drink anything outside with zero air, then I landed on a planet with a breathable atmosphere and it all made sense. The reused locations are not atmosphere dependant, they just turn up on any planet with the same loot, the same enemies in the same location talking about the same thing. Very disappointing, I can't see me filling this with over 300+ mods and spending a years playing it like Fallout and Elder Scrolls

Starfield is now enough of a curiosity that it can make up ground at discount prices. Some folks will want to see how bad it is. Black Friday isn’t that far away. And folks can always sign up for a month of Game Pass. This brings us to the real issue here. Microsoft really doesn’t care about one-time sales anymore. They would rather you subscribe.

Developers only make a fraction of retail. The cost of development supposedly started at $200 million and ended up being $400 million with 500 developers. However I do see $1 billion being possible. Revenue vs. profit would be interesting.

1bn down, 6.5 to go.

I don't see it given the bulk of players will be subscriptions but there's probably some internal metric that translated gp plays to a $ value

The only way this game would be long term profitable is if it loses its exclusive status

Stanjara46m ago

Game exclusivity in this case benefited Starfield because it raged console players and fanboys.

Hagwards Legacy is another example.

With the leader console it could easily be achieved but without it I got my doubts it’ll get close to it but only time will tell IF they do get their billion in for years.

Capcom Boss Would ‘Gracefully Decline’ Any Microsoft Buyout Offer

The boss of Capcom has insisted any buyout attempt from Microsoft would be rejected.

XiNatsuDragnel17h ago

That's good we don't need anymore huge publishers purchase

blackblades16h ago(Edited 16h ago)

It was obvious also pretty sure the others big JP company would decline both of them. Wish he said more like "even if we were looking to be bought MS can't buy us anyways"

"even if we were looking to be bought MS can't buy us anyways"

They would also refuse a offer from Sony as well, so Sony can´t buy them "anyways".

Good ol' predictable Obscure....

Phil Spencer: getting Capcom would be another moment and I honestly believe a good move for both companies. It's just taking a long time for Capcom to see that their future exists only on Xbox hardware. A long time.... :-)

For the people who don't know, Outside_ofthe_Box is being sarcastic. He doesn't actually want to see anyone buy CAPCOM.

Every company wants to get bought.
