The recent leak of documents from the ongoing FTC vs Microsoft court case seems to have revealed Microsoft's plans for a diskless Xbox Series X refresh for launch in 2024.
That about sums it up. That, and new leadership.
"That about sums it up. That, and new leadership." You´re out of luck, Phil Spencer is going nowhere. After a slow start, Xbox is now packed with games and after his EPIC WIN over FTC and Sony by getting that ABK deal approved, you better get used to the idea that the day you´ll see Phil Spencer leaving Xbox, will be the first day of his retirement.
Naw, everything FTC has said is exactly happening. Anything and everything is reversible. To me I couldn't careless if it's monopoly or not. I'm 40 I don't buy Microsoft products not because of xbox but because of Microsoft practice from 90s
How can you possibly be OK with this circus? Do you not realize that you are cheerleading for the death knell of your beloved hobby? In three and a half years you got half baked halo with an obsolete roadmap, Redfall, and the admittedly decent Starfield. That's it. How can you possibly be happy with that?
I cant hear anything over the muffled sound of philly boys nuts in your mouth.
Xbox games are here and all anyone talks about is Starfield a game people will play for the next 7-10 years. The other vocal minority continue to whine and complain about various things because they hate Xbox has platform exclusives. “I’ll just play on PC” Ok do just that
Also, They CAN’T have a updated series X because they have too many different consoles already.
Never say never to the stupidity of MS and their nonsensical naming conventions.
Gamers say that as if Sony has a great list of exclusives this generation which really isn't true. There are a handful of exclusives on ps5 and I personally will never buy what is available at the moment. Sony and MS both need to do better because so far 3rd party games seem to be better then 1st party exclusives this gen.
i guess this writer has forgotten that practically every console goes through a refresh. How and when are decided upon by the market conditions, cost of production and availability of parts. As for the games, I guess he also forgot that MS have been releasing games this year and have more coming over the next several as well.
you need a new brain . funny you dont say that about jim ryan
Plus the all new "Brooklyn" Xbox Series X is all digital too?? Even if I was a hardcore Xbox fan that's a hard pass! https://twitter.com/Xbox_Se...
Thing is it's not for everyone. But it should of been a option from the start. Not half way though the gen. They definitely should not of made the S instead this. Just like Sony did. One digital one disc but same power. I have had a series s for nearly a year. But just did a trade with a friend for my series s and a switch lite for his newly won series X. Would of made the same trade if it was for this digital console.
Exactly. Start releasing a few original interesting must play AAA exclusives a year then think about releasing new hardware during the generation.
They need to make games and stop limiting gamers access to multiplatform publishers
"They need to make games and stop limiting gamers access to multiplatform publishers" Your narrative is now dead on the water. From next month till the end of 2024 there isn´t a single upcoming first party game that weren´t fully funded and developed by Xbox Game Studios. Forza Motorsport Towerborne Flight Simulator 2024 Avowed Hellblade II You running out of arguments to downplay Xbox.
Is this your first year gaming? Those games you listed where are almost all MS has this generation, they literally needed to buy up and ban multiplatform publishers to have any semi-exclusive content. All this happened because MS ignored their own platform for a generation and a half and it's sales died everywhere but the US. Now as punishment to consumers for not buying an Xbox gamers are losing access to entire publishers. "You running out of arguments to downplay Xbox." Until MS stop banning multiplatform publishers from competing systems then Xbox and MS will always be a cancer and a leech to the industry and no one will ever be out of arguments.
Nothing has a concrete release date that you listed except Forza. As an XBSX owner the only game that's interesting on your list to me is Hellblade 2 & there's still no release date nor has there been any recent gameplay footage about the game.
@MrDead "Until MS stop banning multiplatform publishers from competing systems then Xbox and MS will always be a cancer and a leech to the industry and no one will ever be out of arguments." There´s not "systems", dude. Only Playstation got shafted and we all know that´s the only reason you´re losing sleep. You try and pass as some neutral PC gamer but we know you´re not. You been trying to drag the PC community into some conspiracy bs to cover your bias towards Sony. FTC´s leaked documents shows that MS´s plans is only to exclude Playstation from getting ports from new upcoming games by Bethesda. In NO moment Steam or Epic is mentioned. So all of your FUD bs is nothing but hot air.
new games? are you serious? that would make too much sense, it would be too logical.
Wrong. Console sales really take off mid-cycle with the sub-$300 consoles. Microsoft sees the Series S as their slim model, but I think customers are wising up to that console’s limitations. Right now, the $400 PS5 is the lowest cast barrier to true current gen gaming.
This article misses the point. New games & more games will do zero. Quality not quantity. I'm a Sony chap & the only games on the green side that get me a smidgeon jealous are Forza, Ryse Son Of Rome and the flight simulator title. Starfield does nothing for me & Redfall crashed and burned on entry. The only game that Microsoft has coming out that peaks my interest is the Indiana Jones game, as I'm a nerd.
They should of had this digital series X from the start.
It needs to refresh the price to half
In those same leaks. It shows new Bethesda games that are coming out in the next few(2-3?) years. New DOOM game. Ghostwire Tokyo 2. Dishonored 3. Indiana Jones. Project Kestrel Project Platinum And that's besides the remasters and DLC. THAT'S JUST BETHESDA. If it was just those games in the next few years it would be a more than decent few years for Xbox. But that's just Bethesda. There's still Xbox Game Studios and Xbox Publishing. And there's probably gonna be exclusives coming from Activision and Blizzard as well. How could you look at that and still say Xbox "needs more games"? How much more do you want? 😂 Xbox is BACK! It will have more blockbuster exclusives than Playstation this gen. The next few years are gonna be total Xbox dominance in exclusives. It's gonna be insane! The salt will be immeasurable! Starfield salt is just the appetizer. Buckle up gamers!
Are you talking about blockbusters from now until the end of the Gen? Because up until now PS has released quite a few blockbusters with Spiderman 2 just around the corner. Up until now for Ms has Starfield. Everything else listed by MS is speculation.
This gen overall. Xbox will have more blockbuster exclusives than Playstation. Up until now it has been fairly even in number of blockbusters. Starting from Playstation 5 launch up until now: God of War Ragnarok R&C Rift apart Returnal Horizon Forbidden West Sackboy Astro GT7 Spiderman 2 Xbox up until now HiFi Rush Starfield Forza Horizon 5 Age of Empires 4 Forza Motorsport Halo Infinite Pentiment Flight Simulator Grounded I'm not counting games that were terribly received like Redfall, Forespoken and destruction all stars, VR or remakes or 3rd party developed games (FF16 / Stalker 2 or High on Life) unless the IP is owned by 1st party. Crossgen games count as long as they launched in the same year as currentgen launch.
@zeref so your post is 'im not including things which weaken my argument' then, while also forgetting demons souls, but let me guess, then remakes conveniently won't count lol.
