Microsoft is paying up to $300 million for games to be on Game Pass and yet its ability to pick the winners and losers is a bit off.
Yeah you guys have weird judgment of spectacular games imo.
It's a running problem as i remember they passed on Marvel and Genshin Impact as well.
And before that they even passed on little big planet
And Heavy Rain and countless other games many we may never know of. Xbox isn't about games. It's about beating PS.
Xbox heads are clueless. This is why Xbox is in the position it’s in today.
It’s arrogance. Same people said Xbox would have a 30% advantage over ps5 hardware because 12 >10. Straight up morons..
You're linking a twitter post of a blue check mark MS shill.
And, that twitter link proves nothing.
He is going out of his way to cover for Microsoft. Also, even if it is aspirational, which is is clearly not, what difference does it make. Knowing that this is their goal doesn't make anyone feel less disturbed by the prospect of further consolidation and monopolization.
Well according to this his second point is flat out wrong because xbox didnt know BG3 would not release at the same time as other versions.
Lol... Damage control, how much they valued Baldur's Gate 3 again ? "It was estimated it would cost $5 million to have Baldur’s Gate 3 on the service but it was roundly dismissed as a ‘second-run Stadia PC RPG"
@darthv72 Jez Cordon is manipulated by his Microsoft contacts; he thinks he is being told confidential info when really he’s being fed PR.
"Second run" means it launched on a different platform before coming to Xbox, it's it's second run. It's not a comment on the quality of the game lol You would expect videogame writers to know how to read this lingo.
They are twisting themselves into pretzels to try to spin what he said into anything but what he said, lol.
Big brother stop man you're grasping at straws rn.
@Advillain Baldurs Gate was the platform that it was gonna launch on first Jesus Christ do I need to spell EVERYTHING out for you?
This statement was made BEFORE the launch was advanced on PC and BEFORE Xbox was version was delayed.
Eonjay. crazy lol.Case closed.
I don't even have an Xbox, but a PS5. It's hilarious how you are being downvoted for the clarification on the wording. The N4G community is honestly the worst of any entertainment site I ever encountered, ppl intentionally disregard facts if it means they can continue to downvote and make toxic fanboy comments. Feel free to hate Microsoft and XBox for other stuff (deservedly so), but on this topic it's nonsense. And the Advillain guy being heavily upvoted for his Stadia comment, although Baldurs Gate indeed was advertised as a Stadia release at first.
No I'm not grasping at straws. You're wrong. The word you're thinking of is Second-rate not second run. Yikes. https://twitter.com/JezCord...
The premise is wrong for jez. This statment was made before the xbox version was postponed.
@mkis007 Wrong. It was going to launch on Stadia and PC first. That's what they were referring to. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/...
A month gap is not "second run" stop trying to excuse their ignorance.
Big brother, the premise off man, the clarity is article.
Second run doesn't mean second rate like you all think it does, it just means that its not launching on xbox as a first run title i.e initial launch date. Its a second run title for Playstation too, third run really for Xbox.
Again statement made before the release date was postponed for xbox.
This just tell you how much they understand about games, incompetent clowns with pockets full of money.
See how they don’t give a shit until something is popular and everyone is talking about it Next they’ll try and buy them
They already did try to buy them... they were on their acquisition short list.
I guess Microsoft proves money can't buy brains.
