"Stuart explains that Xbox's mission is to bring its first-party experiences and subscription services to every screen that can play a game.
That means smart TVs. That means mobile devices. That means what we would have thought as competitors in the past, like PlayStation and Nintendo."

Third party train has arrived in the station. Ready to depart console business when next gen happens.

Basically microsoft is ditching xbox asap and going all in with gamepass

Brazz21m ago

This realy feels like Xbox is ready to become third party. Not necessarily kill Xbox consoles, but kill exclusivity.

MS becoming a third party publisher is all but a done deal at this point.

But they’ll not specifically say it as their fan base would go f******* off it and they’ll probably think they’ll just end up pushing some of their fanbase to Sony

"Success for us is we can keep growing that content and services revenue double-digits. [...]. If we can grow faster than the market is growing, we are taking share in the gaming market.

And that's where we want to be. It's a 250 billion dollar market. We are not 250 billion dollars."

Their goal is a monopoly

It wouldn't surprise me if Microsoft shift from a console to an amazon firestick sort of device that can be plugged into a tv/monitor and connected to a controller.

It shifts them out of the console business, keeps them on their path of providing gamepass to devices.


Sony expands emotion-sensing plans with new patent for games that know & adapt to your feelings

From Xfire: "Imagine a PlayStation that could sense and react to gamer's joy, frustration, or boredom."

Great so my console is going to be depressed and anxious 24/7

Seraphim13h ago

come now Fox, we all know you also have bouts of enjoyment while playing some games. Therefore it's not all depression and anxiety, just 90% that. ;P

northpaws7h ago


No, when it knows you are depressed, then it would cheer you up, to keep gamers in a good mental state.

100% of your comments are embarrassingly negative and smell like an edgy 16 year old's gaming chair

anast10h ago

And then you post like a closet edgy teenager ...People never learn I suppose.

Is Peter Molyneux working for Sony now?

RonnySins10h ago

No, thanks. I want to play games, not to be a lab rat for your experiments.

Seraphim8h ago(Edited 8h ago)

technically this could be used to enhance games. Struggling with something and just broke your controller. We see you, dial down the difficulty to noob so you can finally have that dopamine rush of excitement which comes from finally beating that boss...

I mean, I agree, no thanks, but patents like these tend to be rather premature and something that wouldn't come to fruition for a few+ more decades. Proof of concept and trademark so others can't capitalize on the idea... Even then, it did come to fruition it still requires the player to have a camera in their room or a headset on. Long as they don't force something like this similar to what XB did with Kinect then to each their own I suppose. It's a hard pass for me though, and if they tried to force something like this on a PS console, see ya later PS.

Turn up. I'm ready. Let's open the flood gates, I'm in a hurry to some something "actually crazy" in gaming.

But hey, they made a smartphone app that allows you to play their "exclusive" games. Look at that. /s
