Xbox Series has been doing better than the Xbox One so far, even with day one games in many platforms, including, PCs, TVs, Mobile, Tablets and Notebooks via XCloud. Not to mention lack of big first party games in 2021, unit shortages and global economy pandemic recession.

Things might improve for Xbox Series if the Xbox showcase turn out great.

Hopefully MS will deliver big time.

Less than 1 million units ahead compared to a 'failed' last gen console with MS subsidizing the shit out of gamepass and selling a cheaper 200 buck console variant. Yeah totally doing 'better than the Xbox One'.

"Yeah totally doing 'better than the Xbox One'."

Yeah, it is. Numbers don´t lie.

Very bad. This numbers with a cheap console. Really bad. Microsoft did much more money with the sales of the Xbox one then with the series...

Don’t mind the Xbox guy his mind is obscured

Don’t worry 2024 will be XBOX biggest year. S/

The Xbox showcase will do nothing for sales. Phil was right when he said they lost a generation of gamers with Xbox One. The last Fable was 14 years ago, current young gamers aren’t invested. Avowed is unknown, Starfield is irrelevant until it’s relevant, Forza isn’t pushing consoles, neither is Hellblade. All this showcase will do is reiterate everything we already know has been coming for the last 3 years but it’s finally inching closer. Series X|S sales wise is dead in the water at this point in the generation. This is coming from an Xbox owner who is still spending more time with flight simulator than anything else on the console, which is unfortunate.

"The Xbox showcase will do nothing for sales."

Oh but it will. As long it turn out great, that is.

You see, there´s tons of disappointed PS fans looking for great single player games that Sony might no provide in the next few years, because they´re apparently too focused on GaaS.

Some might just accept things as they are and wait for greatness to come, some might just buy an Xbox if console gaming is their preference. The best part? Those gamers don´t need to jump ship to enjoy Xbox games.

Phil Spencer already told you that none of these games are going to increase Xbox’s marketshare. A bunch of trailers definitely won’t. And let’s be real. If you are watching these showcases, you are already entrenched in the ecosystem.

So it's not really day 1 gamepass. It's launching to paying customers first then game pass.

It's a thinly veiled attempt to extort money from fans and backpedal on their promises of game pass day 1 because ms has probably now realised there's money to be made on launch day.

Sadly people are not connecting the dots like for starfeild most people took early access at face value


Payday 3 Offline Mode Is Being Looked Into by Starbreeze Amid Server Troubles

Given the rough launch, Starbreeze intends to implement "some sort" of Payday 3 offline mode to fix the matchmaking issues.

Why are offline modes for online only games so rare ?
MMOs i get, but surely a game as compact as a FPS/TPS/(shooters in general) with objectives to fulfill could have an offline option with bots shipped day one. Instead the only times offline "might" be considered is if there are issues with whatever online implementation you're using.
