@kenshiro3948: It's not PR i follow a lot of gaming sites, media outlets, xbox/ms people so I have an idea of what MS is doing. Im not blindly looking at hardware sales and puffing my chest out when there is more to look at(second level thinking).
Satya Nadella when taking over the reigns of MS, his vision for gaming is making it accessible to everybody. Thats why we're seeing a resurgence in MS/Xbox gaming. MS worked on the adaptive controller, gamepass is coming to pc, MS first party with play anywhere and then xcloud.
Xbox to MS is just a gateway device along with everything else to tap into the services. Hardware doesnt mean jack since MS is coming out with other ways to reach a greater audience. MS is gobbling up studios because its services are generating the money and less reliant on hardware being the main cash cow.
We're seeing this change in other entertainment mediums. Like the music industry, you no longer have to buy album/song physically. You can get a song/album from a myriad of streaming services. Its all going back to artist/pub. Less depenedent on hardware.
This is one of the most bullshit post ever,why is it that when MS get its ass kick all of the sudden they are on the damn console race to make games accessible to everybody like if that wasn't already done before MS even got on the damn console race,the PS2 release before the xbox and went to sell 156 million units,the PS before it sold 104 millions nintendo sold 32 millions gaming was already accessible.
We're seeing a resurgence of MS and the xbox gaming where in freaking hell man.
You people are completely deluded there is simply no other explainession for an argument like this the xbox one is selling horribly,it loss all its exclusives (reason of being of a console) is behind not only the PS3 in sales in the same time frame,it also behind the xbox 360 again which has way more units sold by its 5th year than the xbox one has.
The xbox one only 90+ game is Forza and is also on PC free to play online and with better graphics,is a catasthrophy what is happening to the division and MS.
That last part show how much bullshit you people fed your self in order to defend the xbox,without hardware there is no software to begin with hardware is the main part is what will play the software doesn't matter if it is by streaming or physically without the hardware you have nothing is like saying a TV is not important yeah i guess you can hook up your xbox directly to your brain.
MS bought a few ok studios because people and sites can't stop pointing how pathetic the xbox one line of games is.
Lets face it the xbox one is not even a shadow of what the xbox 360 was.
